lyrics

WHAT I GOTTA DO
Jay Clementi / Dustin Crites

We use to drive out, to Trinity Levee
Put makeshift hammock on the roof of that Chevy
Falling in love, making plans in the moonlight
Staying up all night
Always felt just right with you
Baby with you

You got a way about you like no one else
So beautiful put everyone before yourself
I had it all somewhere along the way
Got turned around forgot about the vows I said that day
To you
Baby to you

Wish that I never would have let you down
It's too late can't go back
Wish that I could somehow
Get back our love
It was me it wasn't you
Tell me what I gotta do
What I got, what I got, what I gotta do
What I got, what I got, what I gotta do

If we could make it back through hell again
I know we'd be closer than we've ever been
Baby we can do this don't listen to the doubt
I know we can make it but I can't do it without you
Baby without you

Wish that I never would have let you down
Can't go back it’s too late
Wish that I could somehow
Get it back the way it was
Wish that I never would have let you down
Don't give up let me make it up to you somehow
Got to get back to our love
It was me it wasn't you
Tell me what I gotta do
