Lyrics

Never Nashville

By Mike Whiteley

7-13-15

 

I spend my life just waiting for some good news

But, disappointment seems to rule most days

I try to write a song that ain’t about you

But, my heart just throws you in there anyway

 

I’ve played the bars for 15 years and counting

Sometimes I see your face out on the floor

Every time my phone rings I keep hoping

But, there’s only two calls that I’m waiting for

 

But, It’s never Nashville, It’s never you

It’s someone I don’t want to talk to, and it’s all that I can do

Not to scream and tell ‘em that I’m waiting for a call ….. or two

But, it’s never Nashville, it’s never you

 

Maybe I should just move on and stop this dreaming

Somebody big will sing the songs I write

But, when it comes to you who am I joking?

I guess some dreams are never meant to die

 

But, I’ll keep my cell phone paid up, turned on next to me

Praying that the right calls will come through

I always hope it’s you, or Tennessee

If I had to pick just one I don’t know what I’d choose

 

It’s never Nashville, It’s never you

It’s someone I don’t care to talk to, and it’s all that I can do

Not to hit the end call button so the right call can come through

But, it’s never Nashville, it’s never you

 

In my dreams you’re sitting with me, ‘cause you finally came back home

We hear the ring and both look down, it’s Nashville on the phone

 

It’s never Nashville, It’s never you

It’s someone I don’t care to talk to, and it’s all that I can do

Not to scream and tell ‘em that I’m waiting for a call ….. or two

But, it’s never Nashville, it’s never you

 

 So everyday I’ll spend waiting for a call, or two

But, it’s Never Nashville, it’s Never you
