[Part 6]

"When I say I've got it down"



I am driving up 85 in the
Kind of morning that lasts all afternoon (2)
just stuck inside the gloom (1)
4 more exits to my apartment but
I am tempted to keep the car in drive (2)
And leave it all behind (1)

(3) Cause I wonder sometimes
About the outcome
Of a still verdictless life

(4) Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why Georgia, why?


I rent a room and I fill the spaces with
Wood in places to make it feel like home (2)
But all I feel's alone (1)
It might be a quarter life crisis (2)
Or just the stirring in my soul (1)

(3) Either way I wonder sometimes
About the outcome
Of a still verdictless life

(4) Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why Georgia, why? (5)

(5) So what, so I've got a smile on
But it's hiding the quiet superstitions in my head
Don't believe me
When I say I've got it down (1)

Everybody is just a stranger but
That's the danger in going my own way (2)
I guess it's the price I have to pay (1)

(3b) Still "everything happens for a reason"
Is no reason not to ask myself

(4) If I am living it right
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why Georgia, why? (1)

| h  Hammer-on
| p  Pull-off
