[Verse 1]
Before we ever had any hard decisions
Before we ever had any rule of law
Savannah would laugh at me in her room at her parents’ house
And time how fast it’d take to take off her bra

[Pre-Chorus]
And she was named after, she was named after her dad’s favourite city
I was named after, I was named after the fact, oh yeah

[Chorus]
Savannah, tell me what you had in mind
Savannah, this wait is only multiplying

[Verse 2]
Before we ever had any hard decisions
Before she pulled me from my seat at the bar
Savannah would ramble on about ancient traditions
She said “I don’t need no minister to give you my heart”
But her sisters kept saying these games that he’s playing, you’ll always be waiting
She called me a gentleman
And she’s once, twice, three times a lady

[Chorus]
Savannah, tell me what you had in mind
Savannah, this wait is only multiplying
Baby you can’t lift us, at least you’re trying
I’ll keep running and you’ll keep fighting
Savannah, tell me what you had in mind

[Verse 3]
My phone rings and I see you’re calling
It’s a picture of you on a day you were smiling
You always think that it’s time that I’m buying
You think all I am is a man undecided
So I leave the bar and it’s freezing cold
You say “You always go out and I’m always alone
And this song and dance, it gets pretty old
The love of my life talk is what I’ve been sold”

[Bridge]
I know I let you down a million times, I let you down a million times
But don’t it feel like we’re just scraping by, feels like we’re just scraping by
I know I let you down a million times, I know I let you down a million times
But don’t it feel like we’re just scraping by, feels like we’re just scraping by

[Chorus]
Savannah, tell me what you had in mind
Savannah, this wait is only multiplying
Savannah
[Oo oo oo oo x 4]
Savannah
Ohhhhhhhhh
