Tequila on the Line

well it’s been a rough week

and I’m rather thirsty tonight

so I’m gunna call up my girls

and we’ll tear up the night

I didn’t call to say I missed you

I didn’t call to say I love you

I don’t want you back

I don’t want your body lying next to mine

no I didn’t call you up

It was tequila on the line

But what I do have to say to you is

I hope you’re hurting like hell

With the town gossip saying ‘he isn’t doing so well’

I hope you’re ready to come back begging on your knees

Because you can’t stand another sleepless night with me in your life

And I hope tequila calls me up tonight sayin

I called to say I missed you

I called to say I love you

I want you back

I want your body lying next to mine

It’s me on the line

A Good Partner

“I want someone who can talk about their feelings with me

who wants to spend their free time with me

who says and shows how much they care about me.”

And to make sure you really understood, I said

“I want someone who would watch my house at night

to make sure it didn’t burn down

because they forgot to blow out the candle after we say goodnight.”

And in your eyes I knew you remembered

that love you didn’t have for me.
