James Cavanaugh & The Charm Of Hugo: Music

Nothin For Me Here

(James Cavanaugh)
She's stuck in this town like a cork in a bottle
Not me man, I'm outta here full-throttle
It's my past I don't need it's my past I'll be losin
I hit the gas, and now I'm cruisin
I guess if I loved her I'd ask her to follow
It's not that she's daft it's not that I'm shallow
I'm stuck in a rut that's as deep as my knees
If I don't get out now I'll never leave

Headin south through the cities
I cross the big Mississippi
And it's really quite clear
That there's nothin no there's nothin for me here
Drivin through South Dakota
In my 86 Nova
It's really quite clear
That there's nothin no there's nothin
Nothin for me here

I stop by my Mom's place to say "How ya doin?"
I'm heading out west to find riches or ruin
She asks me quite frankly if I'm out of my mind
Aw, come on, Mom, I'll be fine
A hug and a kiss and I'm back in the car
I question myself, I'm I going too far?
I curse my self-doubt and resolve to be strong
I fill up the tank and then move on

Headin into Wyoming
I see a lonely coyote
And it's really quite clear
That there's nothin no there's nothin for me here
Now I'm drivin through Utah
Salt Lake City seems so small
I'll just keep it in gear
Cuz there's nothin no there's nothin
Nothin for me here

I don't mind at all
If I'm all alone
But how will I know
When I've found a home

30 miles out of Reno
At a truck stop casino
It's really quite clear
That there's nothin no there's nothin for me here
Now I've finally hit coastline
And the ocean beats a strange time
And it's really quite clear
That there's nothin no there's nothin
Nothin no nothin
Nothin, no there's nothin
Nothin for me here
