Tucked Away

Album: Gutterflower (2002)
  • Well I saw you once
    Then I blew it for the next ten thousand days
    Shoulda packed away
    I needed to go back and show you
    I needed to go back, I know it's wrong
    I'll have to get along

    Mama just called and said she's tucked away
    Mama just called and said she's tucked away another day
    Her mama just called and said she's tucked away
    Her mama just called and said she's extra sad today

    Well I spent the whole day yesterday on cliches about love
    Makin' me remember when your pushes became shoves
    I wanted to go back and show you
    I needed to go back, I know it's wrong
    I'll have to get along

    Mama just called and said she's tucked away
    Mama just called and said she's tucked away another day
    Her mama just called and said she's tucked away
    Her mama just called and said she's extra sad today

    Now why'd you go and play my trust
    Today's the same as yesterday
    And I'm okay
    I take a doctor's recommended time to get along
    Since you've been gone
    I'll get along oh any way at all

    Mama just called and said she's tucked away
    Mama just called and said she's tucked away another day
    Her mama just called and said she's tucked away
    Her mama just called said she's tucked away another day
    Tucked away
    Tucked away
    Tucked away
    Tucked away
