As performed on the album That’s My Shit! – Uncle Leon and the Alibis Live in Brooklyn

 

I got a color TV
I got a whole bunch of friends
I got a steady job that I go to now and then

I got things that keep me busy
I got things that keep me living
but there’s one thing that I’ll never have
and that’s you again

And you don’t know,
You don’t know girl,
all the crying that I done

And if I thought that you’d been drinking
the way that I been drinking
I’d put down my glass and call you on the phone
And if I thought that you were thinking
the things that I been thinking
I’d be there right now instead of here alone

It’s been seven years
and a couple thousand miles
I’ve loved you and I’ve hated you
both at the same time

And you don’t know,
You don’t know girl,
how much I wish I’d never gone

And if I thought that you’d been drinking
the way that I been drinking
I’d put down my glass and call you on the phone
And if I thought that you were thinking
the things that I been thinking
I’d be there right now instead of here alone

Well I won’t sit and pretend that I ain’t been
spending all these years with lots of women,
some who I loved, some who loved me back,
and some who just enjoyed the ride

And I understand that more than one man’s
come and stole your heart away, what can I say?
When all is said and done girl,
you’re the one girl
that I think about
every time I turn out the light

I don’t just what I’m doing
I don’t know what to believe
All I know is when I see you, girl
it all comes back to me

Well, my stomach gets to shaking
I find it hard to think
I keep stumbling over words,
You keep knocking over drinks

And you don’t know,
You don’t know girl,
just what I’m saying with this song

And if I thought that you’d been drinking
the way that I been drinking
I’d put down my glass and call you on the phone
And if I thought that you were thinking
the things that I been thinking
I’d be there right now instead of here alone

Yeah, I’d be there right now instead of here alone
