30 DAYS OUT

Official studio version


We fell in love and I made you the world
I spent all my time trying to satisfy you, girl
Just one thing that I can't figure out
Closer I get, farther baby I am out

Thirty days, thirty days out
Well I'm six days running but I'm thirty days out
Thirty days, thirty days out
With every kiss you leave a little shadow of doubt

The roof was leaking honey where we live
And I'm wondering what's that something that you won't give
I started loving you but I gotta stop
You got me mostly waiting for that other shoe to drop

Thirty days, thirty days out
You keep me six days running but I'm 30 days out
Thirty days, thirty days out
With every kiss you leave a little shadow of doubt
Whoa!

Thirty days, thirty days out
Thirty days, thirty days out

Tried to talk about what's going on
You just smile and tell me "Baby there ain't nothing wrong"
In your smile there's a sign in red
It said "Thousand miles of hard road dead ahead"

Thirty days, thirty days out
Yeah I'm six days running but I'm thirty days out
Thirty days, thirty days out
With every kiss you leave a little shadow of doubt

Thirty days, thirty days out
Well I'm six days running but I'm thirty days out
Thirty days, thirty days out
With every kiss you leave a little shadow of doubt

Whoa hoo
Hooo
Whoaaaa hoo
Whoa hoo
Whoa!

Thirty days, thirty days out
Thirty days, thirty days out
