lyrics

I'm fighting for sleep on this ten hour drive
There's no chance I'll be home tonight, I'm sorry now
This ain't no small town, you gotta dream big
You gotta make money and you gotta think quick
I'll come back around
I hope this works out somehow

I don't know why you care for me
All I do is make you cry
Maybe someday I'll be there for you
With a fresh bouquet of flowers, a ray of sunshine and a sparkle in my eye

Twenty two smokes and thirty five beers
Dreams seem real, I kick the shit our of fears
I worry about you now
I got rocks to break and no time to waste
You work real hard and you stay a little late
That's when they give you a raise
And think about those better days

I don't know why you care for me
All I do is let you down
Maybe someday I'll be standing there
With a fresh bouquet of flowers, a ray of sunshine and a sparkle in my eye

Oh why do you always say "Don't give me the runaround"
I can feel you from a thousand miles away
And I'm feeling it come unwound

I got a few jobs and I'm picking up steam
I'll be home by June with a brand new scheme
I mean it this time
The money's alright but the work is so hard
I'm breaking my back and I'm tired and scarred
That's my calling card
And I send this to you with best regards

I don't know why you care for me
All I do is make you cry
Maybe someday I'll be there for you
With a fresh bouquet of flowers, a ray of sunshine and a sparkle in my eye
