​Look the Other Way

This song is by Justin Townes Earle and appears on the album Nothing's Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now (2012).

Mama I'm hurting, in the worst way
I got no money in my pocket, no place to stay
And when I see you out in the streets
Never know what to say
Oh but it doesn't matter mama
If you always look the other way

Mama I'm searching, every night and day, oh
I'm looking for the means to pay,
For all the wrong that I've done
For the nights I left you alone to wait
Oh but I'm always gonna owe you
If you always look the other way

I've been a fool, I know
I'm trying to find a way to show you
That you're the only one
The only one I'll ever want
So I'm learning, learning to be a better man
I'm not certain but I think I can now
Oh but if I fall short just know
I've done all I can do to change
But you never gonna notice if you always look the other way
Mama you never gonna notice,
If you always look the other way
