Scotty Emerick – I Can't Take You Anywhere lyrics

You've been a part of my life
So very long
It's hard for me to believe sometimes
You're really gone
I tuck your memory away
In my special hiding place
Let's hope that no one can tell
By the look on my face
That you're still in my heart
Always on my mind
A part of my every day

Like just last night
I went out for a bite
And I tried to have fun
With her on my mind
But even the laughter
It wasn't much of a break
Cuz right in the middle of my strawberry shake
Bobby Joe walked in
With a couple of friends and said
Hey man have you seen her at all?
Like, where's she been?


And it struck a nerve and it
Hit a vein
You'd think from all the tears I've cried
This broken hearted pain
I wouldn't have to
Carry you around with me
And it seems like everywhere I go
Somebody wants to know where you've been
And are you coming back again
I swear I can't take you anywhere

So I left all alone
I just headed on home
As I listened to the messages on my telephone
There was one from my sister
And one of an old friend
(Hey man, I drove by your house tonight, dude, but uh)
You wasn't in
Just checkin up on you boy
I hope you're doin alright
Oh by the way, man, I seen her last night
