Why Georgia

In my John Mayer blog yesterday I mentioned that one of the reasons I adore him is that his lyrics could have been written for me they mirror my emotions so closely, case in point…

“I am driving up 85 in the
kind of morning that lasts all afternoon
just stuck inside the gloom

Four more exits to my apartment but
I am tempted to keep the car in drive
and leave it all behind

Cause I wonder sometimes
about the outcome
of a still verdict less life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why, why Georgia, why?

I rent a room and I fill the spaces with
wood in places to make it feel like home
but all I feels alone
It might be a quarter life crisis
or just the stirring in my soul

Either way, I wonder sometimes
about the outcome
of a still verdict less life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why, why Georgia, why?

So what, so I’ve got a smile on me
but it’s hiding the quiet superstitions in my head
Don’t believe me
Don’t believe me
When I say I’ve got it down

Everybody is just a stranger but
that’s the danger in going my own way
I guess it’s the price I have to pay
still “Everything happens for a reason”
is no reason not to ask myself

If you’re living it right
Are you living it right?
Are you living it right?
Why, tell me why
Why, why Georgia why”
