Lyrics

Who are you if not the one I met? One July night before the town went wet Jack and coke in your mama's car You were reading The Bell Jar Where are you if you're not on your own? Always lonely, never quite alone Where's the Jesus that you swore you'd find? After running the last line Are you living the life you chose? Are you living the life that chose you? Are you taking a grown-up dose? Do you live with a man who knows you like I Thought I did back then But I guess I never did Did I kid? I got lucky when I finished school Lost three fingers to a faulty tool Settled out of court, I'm no one's fool You probably knew There's plenty left to make a getaway I've spent enough nights in the bluegrass state We could go somewhere where people stay up late Or just somewhere new Are you living the life you chose? Are you living the life that chose you? Are you taking a grown-up dose? Do you live with a man who knows you like I Thought I did back then But I guess I never did Did I kid? Here I am inviting you to throw your life away Victim of nostalgia maybe take away Just tonight I realized that I am still in your backseat Nothing I've had since has meant a thing to me Are you living the life you chose? Are you living the life that chose you? Are you taking a grown-up dose? Do you live with a man who knows you like I Thought I did back then But I guess I never did Did I kid?
