Story

This track brings us back into that Swampy Southern frame of mind that you hear in a lot of Tod's music, with a wicked backbeat and a guitar riff that sounds like it was dredged right off the bottom of the Mississippi River (or maybe the Connecticut, who knows) but with a more aggressive attitude.  A song about a man who just can't stay clear of that woman.  The wrong woman - but it always seems so right at the time.  And who can't relate to that?

Lyrics

I knew the first time that you were a mistake

You sure did prove me right when you caused my heart to break

Came back a second time, how foolish could I be

But now the third time is easier to see.

But It doesn't matter what I do

Can't keep my heart from wanting you

 

So much confusion, spinning in my brain

My friends say give her up, she's driving you insane

And I can't disagree, the evidence is clear

You're like a dead end road I should put in the rearview mirror

It doesn't matter what I do

Can't keep my heart from wanting you

 

I tried to give you up a thousand times before

Like a stray kitten you keep coming to my door

If this is crazy then just lock me away

Cause when you start to purr my heart comes out to play

Cause it doesn't matter what I do

Can't keep my heart from wanting you
