Poorly Labeled Songs

Only have an hour to be out of my hotel So I thought I’d write a song just for you Drove all of yesterday for a hundred dollar bill In this town that I may never come back through Nobody said this was easy But somebody has done this before I’m not the first and I know I’m not the last To write a song with don’t disturb on the door If hotel rooms could talk They’d tell of dreams that crashed to the floor and stayed behind key card locks and don’t disturb signs on the door House keeping is knocking I should probably be on my way There’s another town in another state I’m dropping bread crumbs to find my way Someday this may not be enough You deserve so much more Than songs about dreams or abstract things Like don’t disturb signs on the door The car is all packed up Except for me this notebook and guitar I’ve got five minutes to be on my way or they’ll max out that old credit card Some say I’m wasting my time What are you wasting your’s for? I’ll take the excitement that comes from running behind and don’t disturb signs on the door

Call me in the morning before I go to bed All this day light disappears the bad dreams in my head I don't say that I can't sleep in our empty room So I lay out on this couch like I was passing through And minutes turn to hours and hours turn to days And I'll keep track of all of it until I see your face Call me in the morning Let me know that you're doing fine Call me in the morning I don't care if you wake me every time You flew out on a plane and I look for your return But when I watch the sky all I see are birds With the flutter of a tail or the swoop of a wing Where loneliness there's freedom in the aether where we'll meet And just as soon as you return you go and leave again All the time zones and the cities the sunsets never end. Call me in the morning Let me know that you're doing fine Call me in the morning I don't care if you wake me every time Call me in the morning Let me know that you're doing fine Call me in the morning I don't care if you wake me every time I don't care if you wake me up this time No I don't care if you wake me everytime

The anger in your eyes Helps to disguise The pain that I caused Never wanted to hurt you Always wanted to love you But what's done is done If I could take back time Tell you all the mistakes That I'll make down the line Would you do this again To be right here Where you stand Time has its ways To let in the gray Of what's wrong and what's right When life's just a sunset Sometimes we forget What is dark and what is light If I could take back time Give us a chance to hit rewind Would you press play again? To be right here Where you stand If I could take back time And tell you I'll love you Every day that I'm alive Would you forgive a friend Who's begging to be Right where you stand
