lyrics

i am on the front porch, i hear through the screen door
you talking to somebody i don't care for
and yes i will admit i started drinking a bit early
i'm surprised to find it's only 8:30

but i'm watching the sun go down
thinking about how i'll miss you when you're not around
i'm watching the sun go down
thinking about how i'll miss you when you're not around

won't you drive through georgia the next springtime i'm there
oh i'll be the one in the rocking chair
climb on up the steps, turn around and take a seat
oh how i love the silence of you next to me

as we listen to the night time sounds
and i think about how i miss you when you're not around
as we listen to the night time sounds
and i think about how i miss you when you're not around

and it just seems a bit too much to ask you to stay
and i don't know what it is that makes me feel that way
but whenever you're gone i get a slow sinking sensation
it's the start of fall, it's the end of vacation

so tell me what can i do now
when i can't help but miss you when you're not around
so tell me what can i do now
when i can't help but miss you when you're not around

oh must i be content with this
oh must i be content with this
oh must i be content with this
oh must i be content with this

i have left these feelings unsaid for far too long
and no one knows i have reason to write this song
but whenever you're gone i get a slow sinking sensation
it's the start of fall, it's the end of vacation

so tell me what can i do now
when i can't help but miss you when you're not around
so tell me what can i do now
when i can't help but miss you when you're not around

when i can't help but miss you
when i can't help but miss you
when i can't help but miss you when you're not around
