Tennessee lyrics

Kayleigh Goldsworthy – Tennessee

Well, there's a silence when you're looking at me
I wish I could go back to sleep
But in this moment you won't look beyond the brown
Behind the black
Wider peace on my mind and I'm turning back
Into the girl you always wanted me to be
Bathed in my sympathy, I'm begging to be clean
I send a postcard as I try to find my way
My ghost behind me, I know I'll make it through
AND BE OK, BE OK

There's a lot that's up ahead
And I'll be catching it first thing in the morning
I'm one night away
Towards a southern town beneath the stars
I'll wander every night
TENNESSEE, you've been the nicest place for me

Oh, there's a siren that is deafening
'Cause I try to uncover where I've been
With everybody second guessing all the moves
Their pawns have made
Now I laugh to myself at this mess I've made
I'm not the girl I always thought that I would be
And I stopped holding my breath on silly things
But all the years I've spent just trying to believe
That I'd make it out of here and on to something
ONLY IN MY DREAMS, IN MY DREAMS

There's a lot that's up ahead
And I'll be catching it first thing in the morning
I'm one night away
Towards a southern town beneath the stars
I'll wander every night
TENNESSEE, you've been the nicest place for me

And I'm on my way
I'm on my way

I'm not the girl I always dreamed that I would be
But on my way to there I know I'll surely see
The mile markers as I drive down 65
Take me to somewhere that had always made me feel
ALIVE, OH, ALIVE

There's a lot that's up ahead
And I'll be catching it first thing in the morning
I'm one night away
Towards a southern town beneath the stars
I'll wander every night
TENNESSEE, you've been the nicest place for me
