​Tennessee

This song is by Albatross and appears on the album All Unquiet Things (2012).

We carved our names into a tree
Just to see how it could be
But it was nothing but a scratch
Another place for cars to crash

I lost my heart in Tennessee
Beggin' eyes bendin' knees
And it was more than just a scratch
You carved your name across my back

I made a promise to myself
Not to trust nobody else
I broke it soon as I got home
I cannot do this on my own

I'll never mess you around
No I'll never mess you around
No I'll never mess you around
But I will let you down

I found a friend in Montréal
She hung her posters on my wall
And I could use another friend
Won't you stay until the end?

'Cause I'll never mess you around
No I'll never mess you around
I'll never mess you around
But I will let you down

We carved our names into a tree
Just to see how it could be
But it was nothing but a scratch
Another place for cars to crash

I made a promise to myself
Not to trust nobody else
I broke it soon as I got home
I cannot do this on my own
I cannot do this on my own
