Baby, you there? 'bout an hour outside St. Louis I'm in New York City I'm switching planes in Chicago hey, gotta go soundcheck, but I just want you to know, I'm in Lafayette. I'm in customs. I'm okay. I'm starving Hey, I don't smell good, um, I just woke up at this rest stop and I miss my kids It's been a long time, just a few more days Hey, it's your voicemail again it's like kissing a ghost, I can see you still in my mind. I can almost taste you but I can't feel you. Oh, the road's been good and I've been good but maybe you found someone new, it's like kissing a ghost but I can't feel you Baby? I need you and I need you to wait for me the same way I wait for you Out here traveling, every hour of every day I think of you I want you so bad it's a crime I want you to know that I'm strong, I want you to think I can do this but I'm so scared and it gets harder every day Hey, it's your voicemail again It's like kissing a ghost I can see you still in my mind I can almost taste you but I can't feel you I miss you like breathing- I mean, I feel you all the time Hey, it's your voicemail again... Do you still feel me? Is this your way of asking me to choose? Please, I'm dying Hey, it's your voicemail again it's like kissing a ghost I can see you still in my mind I can almost taste you but I can't feel you it's like kissing a ghost, there is darkness and air but I can't feel you.

God, you're cute even after you've been drinking all day but after awhile, doesn't this all seem the same? and after awhile, all day becomes all night and baby, you were lucky to wake up today it's hard to love a drinking man like I love you when all this loving only makes you feel a fool I'm not mad, I'm not mad but things are getting rough I'm not mad, I'm not mad, I've just seen enough So take your bag, take all your things Take a kiss and here's your hat You know I could look at you all day but I can't watch this any longer, can't ask you to change and I can't have the kids grow up seeing you this way It's no easy thing to love a drinking man I sure tried, I loved a drinking man I loved you I loved you but patience never got me anywhere with you, no baby, Patience never got me anywhere with you, I loved you. I loved you. God looks after drunks and fools and small kids. Maybe he'll look after you.

what you looking at, kid? Never mind, love, luck will turn one day you're going to find someone to love you Never mind, love, luck will turn one day oh, me, oh my, I promise this to you I had a dream, a wicked dream- and I woke up alone Warm arms, Warm bed, I think it's better if I went out right now and got twenty cats instead At least there'd be someone to come home to there'd be someone I could talk to oh, look at me Never mind, love, luck will turn one I swear, I swear, I promise you my friend Never mind, love, luck will turn one day oh me, oh my, oh why do I bother? Empty arms and empty bed Another New Year's Eve watching clowns and staring at the floor I could have been young, I could have been fun, I could have been dripping in gold and my heart screams and my heart screams oh------ As you play mind games with yourself, there's no one else here no, there's no one else here to hear me another night, another night another night out of my life… Never mind, love, luck will turn one day You're going to find someone to love you, good and proper until then, until then, you keep your chin up you are dear. You could be young, you could be fun, you could be dripping in gold And they will leave you there alone.

baby, we can see you're crazy 'bout this guy but you know, even it's hearts and flowers and every day is Valentine's if he did it to her, he will do it to you you know what they say oh, she knows, oh, she knows, oh, she knows we only want the best for you, don't you see? Don't you see what we mean? oh, he knows, oh, he knows, oh, he knows How do I put this one quite well, there's some baggage here I don't want to say, exactly, but a mother has her fears you're not sixteen, you can't just say, what about love, oh, what about love you're not sixteen, you can't say, what about love, what about love, what about it? and he makes you cry again and she knows, and she knows, and she knows but you never say so and that look in your eyes, says you know what I'm thinking and he knows, and he knows, and he knows you were still sleeping but I can feel your heartbeat, heartbeat I can feel your heartbeat, heartbeat do you feel mine?
