Tift Merritt – After Today lyrics

I never thought I'd see eighteen.
I finally got all eyes on me.
My daddy made my sentencing,
Now there's a first for everything.

Don't ask me what comes after today.
Don't ask me what comes after today.
Sweet Emily's eyes are all I am thinking of.
Don't ask me what comes after today.

You must be proud your conscience is clean.
I'm just what you'd expect I'd be.
There's plenty bad to be said for me,
But I never been your judge, I never been your judge.

Don't ask me what comes after today.
Don't ask me what comes after today.
Sweet Emily's eyes are all I am thinking of.
Don't ask me what comes after today.

What's yours to take for free out round here
Is a bullet and a hundred years.
But dream a dream might not be yours,
Keep your head down, boy, keep your head down, boys.

Don't ask me what comes after today.
Don't ask me what comes after today.
Sweet Emily's eyes are all I am thinking of.
Don't ask me what comes after today.

Nobody means for the gun to off, nobody wants it this way.
Nobody sees how the deal went bad but the ones living it everyday.

Up on 145th,
You can see the bridge but you can't cross the way.
I been scared before, I've been scared before,
No matter what you are, you get used to the chains.
No matter who you are, you get used your chains.

Don't ask me what comes after today.
Don't ask me what comes after today.
Sweet Emily's eyes are all I will be thinking of.
Don't ask me what comes after today.
