(Kid Rock) Livin' my life in a slow hell
Different girl every night at the hotel
I aint seen the sun shine in 3 damn days
Been fuelin' up on cocaine and whisky
Wish I had a good girl to miss me
Lord I wonder if I'll ever change my ways
I put your picture away
Sat down and cried the day
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to her
I put your picture away, sat down and cried today
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to her

(Sheryl Crow)
I called you lastnight in the hotel
Everyone knows but they wont tell
But their half hearted smiles tell me
Somethin' just ain't right
I been waitin' on you for a long time
Fuelin' up on heartaches and cheap wine
I ain't heard from you in 3 damn nights
I put your picture away
I wonder where you been
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to him
I put your picture away
I wonder where you been
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to him
I saw ya yesterday with an old friend

(Kid Rock)
It was the same ole same "how have you been"

(Both)
Since you been gone my worlds been dark & grey

(Kid Rock)
You reminded me of brighter days

(Sheryl Crow)
I hoped you were comin' home to stay
I was head of the church

(Kid Rock)
I was off to drink you away

(Both)
I thought about you for a long time
Can't seem to get you off my mind
I can't understand why we're living life this way
I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I just called to say, I love you come back home

    I really do think this song is beautiful. Sadly but I can relate to it my old lady n I she might deny but the truth will set her free. What we realized is that we tried to hurt one another and really we hurt our self's especially since we found that we couldn't really leave each other even though I hated her for it and her the same our love for one another kept I'd together. But a woman will always deny and I tell you things would go a lot smoother if she would tell the truth but I'm a forgiving man and under stand a woman don't want to look bad. That's why this song hits the heart with us.
