Louise Mosrie: Music

Don't Come Lookin' For Me

(Louise Mosrie)
Louise Mosrie/Donna Ulisse
A thousand miles
20 odd years
2 failed marriages
3 grown kids
You’re dragging those heavy bags back east well,
Don’t come looking for me.

12 phone calls
14 days
Straight to voicemail cause
There’s nothing to say
Cars moving slow down my street
Don’t come looking for me

I got a fine house in the
shade of an oak tree
A patch of garden and a
husband who loves me
It’s a world bigger than your
lonely memories
Of the girl you left in
Tennessee
So don’t come looking for
me.

Like ice cold water on my face
I was back in time back in that place when
You curled ‘round me like poison ivy, no
Don’t come looking for me

That torch you carry is dark as sin
I ain’t letting the devil walk back in
Oh, if you really cared, you’d let me be, no
Don’t come looking for me

There’s a dead end road in the back of my mind
Junkyards of memories like cars left to die
And a lover’s tears I’ve long since left behind
You can’t push that river back upstream
And don’t come looking for me.

I got a fine house in the
shade of an oak tree
A patch of garden and a
husband who’s real sweet
It’s a world better than your
rosy memories
Of the girl you left in
Tennessee
So don’t come looking for
me.
No don’t come looking for
me.
