  • O, presently I'm standing
    Here right now
    You're so demanding
    Tell me what you want from me

    Concluding
    Concentrating on my music, lover, and my babies
    Makes me wanna ask the lady for a ticket outta town
    So can I get a window seat

    Don't want nobody next to me
    I just want a ticket outta town
    A look around
    And a safe touch down

    Window seat
    Don't want nobody next to me
    I just want a chance to fly
    A chance to cry

    And a long bye bye
    But I need you to want me
    Need you to miss me
    I need your attention

    I need you next me
    I need someone to clap for me
    I need your direction
    Somebody say come back

    Come back baby come back
    I want you to need me
    Come back come back baby come back
    Come back come back baby come back

    Come back come back baby come back
    So, in my mind I'm tusslin'
    Back and forth 'tween here and hustlin'
    I don't wanna time travel no mo

    I wanna be here
    I'm thinking
    On this porch I'm rockin'
    Back and forth light Lightning Hopkins

    If anybody speak to Scotty
    Tell him beam me up
    So can I get a window seat
    Don't want nobody next to me

    I just want a ticket outta town
    A look around
    And a safe touch down
    Window seat

    Don't want nobody next to me
    I just want a chance to fly
    A chance to cry
    And a long bye bye

    But I need you to miss me
    Need somebody come get me
    Need your attention
    Need your energy yes I do

    Need someone to clap for me
    Need your affection
    Somebody say come back
    Come back baby come back

    I want u to need me
    Come back come back baby come back
    Come back come back baby come back
    Come back come back baby come back

    But can I get a window seat
    Don't want nobody next to me
    I just want a ticket outta town
    A look around

    And a safe touch down
    I just need a chance to fly
    A chance to cry
    And a long
