Just Don't

Album: Stone Rollin' (2011)
  • Walking down the street
    Saw a random picture of your face
    Trying to get you out of my mind
    But you won't go away
    My eyes that cried, days and nights too

    You were there for me, what a fool
    I overlooked you and you were always there for me
    I was there for you, time can't buy retro-respect
    Heard you was such a big regret

    And now I'm on this miracle mile
    Everything I touch runs wild
    I spend my last to make you first again
    Guess I can see the trees again

    The grass is never greener
    Tell me why I didn't think about this before now
    'Cause my baby's gone

    I just don't know what to do about you
    All broke up over you, I just don't, I just don't
    I just don't know what to do about you
    All broke up over you, I just don't, I just don't
    I just don't know what to do about you
    All broke up over you, just don't, just don't

    Shelly moved away to Jackson, Mississippi
    Where the grass is green and so pretty
    She found her a preacher man
    'Cause that's all she ever wanted

    Life at home was very hard
    Yes, I sent a million cards
    Life without her there
    This can't be true, no this isn't fair

    Walking down the street calling your name
    People think I'm going insane
    This is just a terrible dream
    And my mind can do without it

    I drown myself in whiskey, grass and beer
    Love, I was wishing you were here
    But here's a toast to you and your new found friend
    I'm gonna be missing you
    I just don't,
    I just don't 'cause my baby's gone

    I just don't know what to do about you
    All broke up over you, I just don't, I just don't
    I just don't know what to do about you
    All broke up over you, I just don't, I just don't
    I just don't know what to do about you
    All broke up over you, I just don't, I just don't Writer/s: TAURA STINSON, RAPHAEL SAADIQ, YUKIMI NAGANO
