  • I got enough on my mind
    That when she pulls me by the hair
    She hasn't much to hold onto
    She keeping count on her hand
    One, two, three days that I've been sleeping on my side

    I finished kissing my death
    So now I head back up the steps
    Thinking about where I've been
    I mean the sun was never like this
    So I wanna feel with the seasons
    I guess it makes sense 'cause my life's become as vapid as
    A night out in Los Angeles
    And I just wanna stay in bed

    I hold you like I used to
    You know that I am home
    So darling if you love me
    Would you let me know?

    Or go on, go on, go on
    If you were thinking that the worst is yet to come
    Why am I the one always packing up my stuff?

    For once, for once, for once
    I get the feeling that I'm right where I belong
    Why am I the one always packing all my stuff?

    She got enough on her mind
    That she feel no sorrow
    I let my fate fill the air
    So now she rollin' down the window
    Never been one to hold on
    But I need a last breath, so I ask if she remembers when
    She used to come and visit me
    We were fools to think that nothing could go wrong

    Go on, go on, go on
    If you were thinking that the worst is yet to come
    Why am I the one always packing up my stuff?

    For once, for once, for once
    I get the feeling that I'm right where I belong
    Why am I the one always packing all my stuff?
    I think I kinda like it but I might of had too much

    I'll move back down
    To this western town
    When they find me out, make no mistake about it

    I'll move back down
    To this western town
    When they find me out, make no mistake about it

    I'll move back down (Go on, go on, go on, if you were thinkin' that the worst is yet to come)
    To this western town
    Why am I the one always packin' up my stuff

    Go on, go on, go on, if you were thinkin that the worst is yet to come
    Why am I the one always packin' up my stuff?

    For once, for once, for once, I get the feeling that I'm right where I belong
    Why am I the one always packin' up my stuff?

    I think I kinda like it, but I might of had too much
    I'll move back down Writer/s: ANDREW DOST, JACK ANTONOFF, JEFF BHASKER, NATE RUESS
