Lyrics:

to the right
there's some west texas
thunder stormin'
and it looks like
I'm in for some
rain again
I need to see you
and I will
but I don't know when
and this achin'
is worse than
its ever been

i got away
and i thought
i was someone new
but some things are
too good
to hold onto
found a job
and a room
with a perfect view
of a world
and a view
that was better too

so pack up, baby
come down
and save me
someday, maybe
the best of me
will be
good for you
but I'm crazy
to think you could be
thinkin' of me
good for you

I never dreamed
all my dreams would
be comin' true
and they're not
but I guess there's
still work to do
and today
on my way home
I thought of you
when you loved me
it felt like
you wanted to

I read your notes
and I cried like
a baby again
its always the same
and I never can
call your place
let it ring
til it beeps and then
leave a message
with all that
I shoulda been

pack up, baby
come down
and save me
someday, maybe
the best of me
will be
but I'm crazy
to think you would be
thinkin' of me
but I could be
good for you
