Four Beers

(Mike Maves)
July 23, 2005
Sitting here on my back porch
The breeze feeling cool
Staring up at the starlight
Thinking of you
Wondering why I’m staying up all night
Waiting by the telephone
Sick and tired of living my life
Living my life alone
Waiting for you
Waiting for you
But what am I going to do?

I’m four beer s from feeling normal
Three hours away from you
But when love gets up and leaves you lonely
What’s a boy to do?

Woke up this morning
Sure had the blues
Tossed and turned all night
I was thinking of you
Thinking back about a long, long time
A long, long time ago
We were heading off on the road
We were heading of to Buffalo
Just me and you
Me and you
But what am I gonna do

I’m four beer s from feeling normal
Three hours away from you
But when love gets up and leaves you lonely
What’s a boy to do?

Now all this time is just time a wasting
Sitting here with my self my beer and a song
And all this time you’ve been keeping me waiting
And all this time you’ve been keeping me waiting
And all this time you’ve been keeping me waiting
It’s wrong
Wrong
Wrong
Baby it’s wrong

Another night on my back porch
The breeze feeling cool
Think it’s just about time that I
Forgot about you
Maybe I should take a long, long drive
And find a brand new place to go
Maybe I should just drive all night
And meet the morning in Mexico
I think that’s what I’ll do
That’s what I’ll do
Now I’m over you

I’m four beers from feeling normal
Three hours away from you
But when love gets up and leaves you lonely
What’s a boy to do? (repeat and fade)
