Jason Isbell — Shotgun Wedding lyrics

Ten years out of high school, still no idea what to do
You took him home from a nightclub, he took a nightclub to you
Now I watch from the window, too guilty to scream
My feet are like steel, I might be in a dream

Well, every time I see you, you look bigger than you did the day before
And even though I know it's not my fault, I wish it was
I can only ride the elevator all night long from floor to floor
And I can only stand outside your window in the dust

So how about a shotgun wedding? What about your dignity?
What about a different setting? What about me?
All your daddy's wishes honored, all of that security
How about a shotgun wedding? What about me?

I guess I'm a loner, some call me a freak
I saw you in the hallway, too guilty to speak
Now I sleep in the daytime and I sleep on the floor
I dial your number and I knock on your door

But every time I hear your voice or footsteps, I get frozen in my place
And I have to struggle for the courage just to run
I can see the eyes of all the ones that left you glowing in your face
And I just wanna help you with this life that you've begun

So how about a shotgun wedding? What about your dignity?
What about a different setting? What about me?
All your daddy's wishes honored, all of that security
What about a shotgun wedding? What about me?
What about a shotgun wedding? What about me?
