Alvernon - What Am I Gonna Do? lyrics
What am I gonna do? We made a little place for you, will you sit down by my side? Will you just keep walkin' by? It's way too far, momma says, gotta keep up those appearances. You never call home anymore, so what's this screaming for? Give it here, take it back you need it more from where you're at. You've got a blindfold on your head. You've got a monkey on your back. Give it up, it's just a myth and I'd like to know who you've been with all these long and sunny years. All these way to stretched out years.
I lost all my telephone numbers. I drank too much whiskey, fell into a slumber for six to eight days. Born and raised in Carolina, there's nothing finer than this.
Save the kids, kill your time, if someone asks just say you're doin' fine. Was there somethin' else to say? I think there's nothing left to say. Save your time, kill the kids. The teacher tells you how it is. It reminds you who you are. It reminds me who you are. Come with me before you go. Grant me one last chance to show that you really shouldn't leave and I'm somethin' that you need. Save your things, all that's left. Pack up your box and hold your breath and you don't know what to do. You don't know what to do.
I wish I was younger. I wish had hunger higher than the rest. I wish I was older and lived someplace that's colder than this.
What am I gonna do? The day is over, time is through where I had something to choose. Where I had something to lose. It took too long to fill my cup, I've got a special request for a trash pickup. I've got a lock on everything, but I think I lost my key. Take me home.
I wish I was younger. I wish I was older. I wish I was stronger. I'd go someplace colder. Colder than this.
