SONGWRITING

Ever Since the Last Time

By: Laura Alford

How did we meet?
Man, I don’t even know
We jumped right in,
Didn’t take it slow
Now I’m hooked
And I can’t let go.
But it ain’t no problem.
No, it ain’t no problem.

Ever since the last time,
I’ve been needing more
Come on in, baby,
Lock the front door
Don’t take no time
For my boots to hit the floor
Cutting corners,
Staying out too late
Drinking whiskey,
Getting half-baked
Rearranging
All these things on my plate.
But it ain’t no problem.
No, it ain’t no problem.

Being with you’s so good,
That I must confess
Once or twice,
I’ve married men for less
These overwhelming feels
Are causing me to stress.
But it ain’t no problem.
No, it ain’t no problem.

Ever since the last time,
I’ve been needing more
Come on in, baby,
Lock the front door
Don’t take no time
For my boots to hit the floor
Cutting corners,
Staying out too late
Drinking whiskey,
Getting half-baked
Rearranging
All these things on my plate.
But it ain’t no problem.
No, it ain’t no problem.

I can’t stay away
Ain’t gonna happen–
Not quitting today
Ain’t gonna happen—
Not stopping today
Ain’t gonna happen—
No how, no way.
No damn way.
But it ain’t no problem,
No it ain’t no problem.

But, Ever since the last time,
I’ve been needing more
Come on in,
Baby, shut the front door
Don’t take no time
For my boots to hit the floor
Cutting corners,
Staying out too late
Drinking whiskey,
Getting half-baked
Rearranging
All these things on my plate.
But it ain’t no problem.
No, it ain’t no problem.
