The Mimsies - Tennessee lyrics

What you were
When you came inside
A godsend in headlights all (edit: on?) last night
I'm still startled by what I came to believe in Tennessee, yeah.

But I compromised,
Oh yeah I compromised,
I shouldn't have compromised,
Now that I've compromised.

I wish times
Why don't you light my way,
And I rode all night wishing I could have stayed.
And I realized last time I closed my eyes was in Tennessee, yeah.

But I compromised,
Oh yeah I compromised,
I shouldn't have compromised, now that I'm compromised.

Then I blink for a minute just to see that you were gone,
Replaced by something I think I saw all along.
Now you're just what I expected,
But refused to believe In Tennessee.
In Tennessee.
In Tennessee.

And I'm home but i can't sleep, no.
You're no star, least, least not in my sky
It's unintelligent the way I keep begging why
Didn't you have enough toys to play with in Tennessee
Did you have to play with me?

Then I blink for a minute just to see that you were gone,
Replaced by something I think I saw all along.
And now you're just what I expected, but refused to believe,
Oh yeah, you're just what I expected but refused to believe, yeah
You're just what I expected but refused to believe,
In Tennessee.
In Tennessee.
