Why Georgia
John Mayer Lyrics


I am driving up 85 in the
Kind of morning that lasts all afternoon
I'm just stuck inside the gloom
4 more exits to my apartment but
I am tempted to keep the car in drive
And leave it all behind

'Cause I wonder sometimes
About the outcome
Of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why, why Georgia, why?

I rent a room and I fill the spaces with
Wood in places to make it feel like home
But all I feel's alone
It might be a quarter life crisis
Or just the stirring in my soul

Either way I wonder sometimes
About the outcome
Of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why, why Georgia, why?

So what, so I've got a smile on
But it's hiding the quiet superstitions in my head
Don't believe me
Don't believe me
When I say I've got it down

Everybody is just a stranger but
That's the danger in going my own way
I guess it's the price I have to pay
Still "everything happens for a reason"
Is no reason not to ask myself if I

Am living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why, tell me why,
Why, why Georgia, why?

I am driving up
85 in the
Kind of morning that
Lasts all afternoon
I'm just stuck inside the gloom

Four more exits to
My apartment but
I am tempted to
Keep the car in drive
And leave it all behind

'Cause I wonder sometimes
About the outcome
Of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why, why Georgia why?

I rent a room and I
Fill the spaces with
Wooden places to
Make it feel like home
But all I feel's alone

It might be a quarter life crisis
Or just a stirring in my soul

Either way
I wonder sometimes about the outcome
Of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why, why Georgia why?

So what so I've got a smile on
But it's hiding the quiet superstitions in my head
Don't believe me
Don't believe me
When I say I've got it down

Everybody is
Just a stranger but
That's the danger in
Going my own way
I guess it's a price I have to pay

Still
"Everything happens
For a reason"
Is no reason not to ask myself

If I'm living it right
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why, tell me why
Why, why Georgia why?

If you really listen to these lyrics, they are very profound in thought. Mayer doesn't really get enough credit for how excellent his song writing ability is

Juile Gamble

Yes he's very underrated and if Taylor Swift got a Grammy out of the year he definitely should have he is an actual a genius writer and singer

Shawnelle Martineaux

This!

7 grammies are not enough? I am a great songwriter - but I have none

I totally agree. I just moved into my new apartment actually and this song just stumbled across my head randomly while being here. Everything has a purpose in life. There is context in every situation you just have to read between the lines. I love John Mayer and even more so that he's jiving with my favorite band of all time, the Grateful Dead. Good Vibrations! ✌️
