1. Porch Song

From the recording HISTORY


PORCH SONG © 2017 Steve Sofferin
You know it's hard to explain, but you've been causing misery
Never give but always takin', and you're slowly breaking me
And I hope you're gone by morning, like to spend the day alone
Wish you'd walk right out the door now, and leave me on my own
You keep on askin' me questions about the way you want to be
You keep on prying and deciding, and it's getting hard to see
That I do have some restrictions, but they've never been observed
Things you've never been aware of, boy you sure do have the nerve
You know I don't do too much talking
But I've still got things to say
I wish you'd pack up your belongings
and take them all away
You know I've never been this lonely,
But I've never been alone
Why don't you pack it all and leave now
and go out and hit the road
You ain’t been treating me with fairness, and you're taking all that's mine
Sometimes you show up in the morning, and want to waste my time
Start to lower my resistance, but then I get the strength
Got to keep you in the distance, so don't hang around too late
