about

Not being a Country artist, this song was written in 1993 as a challenge to myself to write a Country song.

[Verse 1]
Well, she kicked me out after our last fight.
I done her wrong while she done me right.
Changed the lock on the door above and below.
Oh no!

[verse 2]
Now that it's over, what's a guy to do?
The whole town knows what I put her through.
Now I'm all messed up with nowhere to go.

[chorus]
I'm wearing this tailor-made-for-me black eye,
There's another one like it on the other side.
With my heart on my sleeve, my foot in my mouth,
A ring in my ears and my insides out.

Well, she done me in and then she set me free,
But leavin' here is comin' slow
'Cause I'm all messed up with nowhere to go.

[verse 3]
Can't send flowers 'cause they make her sneeze.
Can't say "I'm sorry", and I can't say "please".
Gotta find some new way to really let her know.
Oh yeah!

[verse 4]
But when she put her foot down it was in my head,
Now I can't remember what I did or said.
I'm all messed up with nowhere to go

[chorus]
I'm wearing this tailor-made-for-me black eye,
There's another one like it on the other side.
With my heart on my sleeve, my foot in my mouth,
A ring in my ears and my insides out.

Well, she done me in and then she set me free,
But leavin' here is comin' slow
'Cause i'm all messed up with nowhere to go.

I'm all messed up with nowhere to go.
I'm all messed up with nowhere to go.
