Justin Townes Earle – Baby's Got A Bad Idea lyrics

Baby’s got a bad idea I can see it in her eyes
She wanna hide it but she cant, no matter how hard she tries

Baby’s acting like a kid, lord she’s playing games with me. Oh but, I’m
Much too old a man these days to play hide and seek

Maybe if I were a better man she wouldn't walk away from me, yeah I could
Keep her close to me

Baby’s got a hold on me yeah she’s tearing me in two
I know there’s nothing, there’s nothing I can do

Sometimes when she sleeps I like to listen to her breathe
I wish that could know what she’s dreaming but I don’t know

Baby’s got a cold embrace and she just don’t feel the same

Yeah she did when she use to call me by my name, yeah
Yeah she did when she use to call me by my name

Oh, damn
