THE RADIO

Lately I been giving everything I got to feeling low.
Baby, you got me living one of them hard luck songs on the radio.
Oh, and I know if I change the station I'll get the same song.
Hope it ain't on the top too long.
'Cause I really couldn't take it if they kept on playing it.
It's too unhappy and too close to home,
I don't wanna hear it but the singer keeps singing that song.

I gave you my love...you didn't earn it.
I gave you my life but you wouldn't stay,
And I hope you will return it to me someday.
I gave you my love...you didn't earn it.
I gave you my life, but you threw it away
And I hope you will return it to me someday.

Somedays I just sit around and kinda dream and watch the rain.
Or I'll pick up some old magazine of yours that I forgot to throw away.
Then I'll sleep a little or walk the floor.
I smoke a lot more than I did before.
I'll call somebody I used to know
Just to try to stay away from the radio,
'Cause I really can't take it if they keep on playing it.
It's so unhappy and so close to home,
I don't wanna hear it but the singer keeps singing that song. I

I gave you my love...you didn't earn it.
I gave you my life but you wouldn't stay,
And I hope you will return it someday.
I gave you my love...you didn't earn it.
I gave you my love, but you threw it away
And I hope you will return it to me someday.
