Put It On the Credit Card

Today I’m writing you a country song
Where everything comes out all right
After you done so many things wrong
I did a very foolish thing last night
Where pain and alcohol greeted me
I took the easy path of anger and blame
I thought this just might set me free
I thought I would no longer be insane
So I just want to put in on the credit card
Forgive me; I can’t pay for it right now
So please just put it on the credit card
Until I can figure out how to make it somehow

I never thought I could ever hurt like this
I have no excuses; I am just a man in pain
I never thought I could ever miss like this
I have no excuses, I am only to blame
So I just want to put it on the credit card
Forgive me; I can’t pay for it right now
So please just put it on the credit card
Someday, somehow but just not now

I don’t know how to transcend this pain
I feel out of control and nowhere to go
I don’t know how to stop this lonely rain
I had so much I want to give and to show
So I just want to put it on the credit card
Forgive me; I just can’t pay for it right now
So please just put it on the credit card
I know you won’t be able to forgive me now

You were the one, why did I not know
A lifetime of learning never taught me this
I didn’t know how to let love flow
I don’t know now how to forget your kiss
So I just want to put it on the credit card
Forgive me; I just can’t pay for it right now
So please I beg, just put it on the credit card
I shouldn’t ask but please forgive me somehow

I don’t know what to do to make things better
I am struggling with a nasty black beast
I don’t know what to do to cut the tether
That holds me so strongly at your feet
So I just want to put it on the credit card
Forgive me; I just can’t pay for it right now
I wish I could get by without you somehow

I guess that I will just have to say good-bye
It wasn’t what I wanted, I had a dream
Of us together forever, but I didn’t even try
Now I just wish I could silence my heart scream
Just this once, I want to put it on the credit card
I am too weak to pay for it right now
So, please just put it on the credit card
I shouldn’t ask, but please forgive me somehow
I love you, Tamron
