Odessa

  • Taking it slow, saving up she
    Before she knows it, all I ask before she goes home
    She's tired of cryin' and sick of his lies
    She's suffered him for far too many years of her life

    Feeling low, and scared that he'll say
    Do you know how over time you drove her away
    Saving up for, the day when she goes
    The day that she stands up
    For everything that she chose

    (She can say, she can say, she can say
    She can say, she can say, she can say
    Who knows what shes gonna say)

    Saving up for, the day when she goes
    The day that she stands up
    For everything that she chose
    Takin' the kids, drivin' away
    Turn around the life she let him siphon away

    And I've been with you, for all of these years
    Tell you what I've got to show for all of my tears
    The times you hurt me, and treated me wrong
    Something had to give to stop this thing from going on

    (She can say, she can say, she can say
    She can say, she can say, she can say
    Who knows what shes gonna say)

    (She can say, she can say, she can say
    She can say, she can say, she can say
    Who knows what shes gonna say)

    She's tired of crying, and sick of his lies
    She's suffered him for far too many years of her life
    And feeling low, and scared that he'll say
    Do you know how over time you drove her away Writer/s: Daniel Snaith
