Virginia

-Chris Merritt


Tell me what I don't know
Tell me how to fix it

My mouth is hungry
My chest is empty

I miss Virginia
But do I really?
Cause I remember darkness coming into me there
Trouble breathing even in the fresh air

Talking to my good friend

I don't know how he puts up with
Listening to my milksop
And still he stays my good friend

I lay down

Avoiding looking over at the clock
Is it 3:00 or 3:15?
Does it make a difference?
Cause I been here just about twenty-five times
And I seem to recall
That it makes no difference

There ain't nobody there
And there ain't nobody here
There ain't nobody there

And there ain't nobody here

Talking to the old man

He says I done screwed up big
Well I look down

And I got no money for a few days
Tried to work a lot
But it made no difference
Well I been here just about twenty-five years
And I seem to recall that there ain't much difference

My mouth is hungry

My chest is empty
I miss Virginia
But do I really?
Cause I remember darkness coming into me there
Trouble breathing even in the fresh air

California ain't no different
California, when you gonna feel like home?
