Jake Owen - What We Ain't Got



What We Ain't Got

By Jake Owen
We all want what we ain't got,
Our favorite doors are always locked.
On a higher hill with a taller top,
We all want what we ain't got.
We ain't happy where we are,
There's greener grass in the neighbors yard.
A bigger house and a faster car,
We ain't happy where we are.
All I want is what I had,
I'll trade it all just to get her back.
She's moving on, but I guess I'm not
We all want what we ain't got
We all wish it didn't hurt,
When you try your best and it doesn't work.
And goodbye's such a painful word,
We all wish it didn't hurt.
All I want is what I had,
I'd trade it all just to get her back.
She's moving on, but I guess I'm not.
We all want what we ain't got.
All I want is what I had,
I'd trade it all just to get her back.
She's moving on, but I guess I'm not.
We all want what we ain't got.
I wanted the world until my whole world stopped,
You know a love like that ain't easily forgot.
I guess we all want what we ain't got.
Yeah, we all want what we ain't got.

--When I think of this song, I don't think about lost loves, but lost people, and beloved pets. I'd be happy to see my Vicky Girl again, to hear her purr. I'd be happy to see Harry honking out there with the rest of the flock and hanging with his sister. I'd love to see my Grandma again.  
But that don't happen.  Money? Stuff? fuck that.
