you can leave it there for later, just like you left me…

 

 

“Where You Thought It’d Be”

                                                                                          Lindsey Vanlandingham

 

That conversation that you needed to have

The things you needed to tell your dad

Well that can wait

It’s getting pretty late

That key to that old truck of yours

Threw it back into one of those drawers

You don’t need it now

It’ll be around

*

You can leave it there for later just like me

You left me there until I’m what you need

Pour a drink, kick back, take it nice and easy

*

That apology you needed to speak

You decided it could wait for a week

You’ll call your buddy then

He’ll always be your friend

That damn old bill you need to pay

It’s already late so what’s another day

You put it on the shelf

No need to stress yourself

*

You can leave it there for later just like me

You left me there until I’m what you need

Pour a drink, kick back, take it nice and easy

So you left it there for later just like me

You left it there until it’s what you need

Pour a drink kick back take it nice and easy

*

Well the hospital called, said that it was bad 

So you finally decided to talk to your dad

You made the time to call and talk 

You apologized, your buddy blew you off

Now the bill collector is tacking on those fees

And you still can’t find that damned old truck key

*

You left it there for later just like me 

You left it there until it’s what you need

*

Sometimes in life you’ve gotta be on time

If you wait too long your chance will pass you by

So you can leave it there for later just like you left me

The problem is, it’s never where you thought it’d be
