"Pretty Girl From Michigan" lyrics - THE AVETT BROTHERS

"Pretty Girl From Michigan"

Can you not see what you've done?
You gave your heart away like that
I didn't want to fall in love
With anyone, but you did
I can still hear the song
The melody behind the kiss you gave me
You were wrong, I was right, so I walked away
And left you there alone
I got so tired of talking on the telephone
How many times would we say the words "goodbye?"

I make mistakes, and one was telling you that I'd be there
When telling time had come
I should have said I didn't care
Oh, the time I would have saved
If I had been less willing to accommodate
You'd been a little less likely to cry

You go back to the high life
And I'll go back to the low
I should have known, but now I know

There will be no word from you
Describing how it felt to go through
What I put you through
It all makes perfect sense
The way you cut the rope
That kept you dangling
From such pitiful amounts of hope
I would have cut it too
