Tommy Richman Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Tommy baby
Tell me lately
Who′s the driver?
Who's the driver?
Tommy baby
Tell me baby
Don′t know what to do
Don't know what to say or how to choose
I figured out
I know your always mine
I keep my tabs on you for the nights
These days seem like they're refined
Hold on, we don′t play
Figure out
What you know, yeah, I′ve been yearning for
(We don't play)
How you feel this night? I wanna soar
(Making my place)
Know you′re well tonight
(Our place)
Though you're well tonight
(Our place)

Is it that I′ll go outside?
I don't know what you′re waiting for
I don't know what you're waiting for
I′m so stressed
I′m not blessed
I don't see your comfort
See your comfort
Walked away
So, so clearly
So, so clеarly
It′s so, so clearly
So, so clearly
(That's mine)
It′s so, so clеarly
So, so clearly
('Cause that′s right)
I left my fire for my bed
For my bed
All damn day and night
All damn day and night
(I said)
It's alright
(Oh, we don't get that)

So, so clearly
So, so clearly (I know you)
So, so clearly
So, so clearly (I know you)

I know you




I know you
I know you
