  • What, where am I?

    What's life like on a train
    Nobody there knows your name
    As your decision changed
    Do you wish that I came

    I thought you'd pick me up from work
    I waited for your truck for half hour
    I know you said you gonna
    But I never thought you'd leave

    This one thing that was made for us
    Chasing us, saving us
    I take one thing over everything
    I take that thing over anybody

    Square face and puppy eyes
    Found out they never lied
    Your old man lived in the sky
    Left your house with a yard
    But you went away a different try
    Found a place that's your size
    Too good to finish life here with me

    I couldn't get you to say
    Why you wouldn't let me come
    What should be simple just ain't
    And it shouldn't hurt like it does

    This one thing is made for us
    Won't stay with us, it ain't saving us
    But I'll take one thing over everything
    I'll take that thing over anybody

    Baby, hold me, don't pick me up
    I need a compliment
    Just a touch from a friend
    I need a gentle word
    I need your company
    I'll keep

    One thing that was made for us
    Chasing us, saving us
    I take one thing over anything
    I take that thing over anybody

    I take one thing over everything
    I take that thing over anybody
    Oh, oh, anything
    Oh, oh, take one thing Writer/s: ALICIA KEYS, CHRISTOPHER BREAUX, JAMES RYAN WUIHUN HO
