I Don't Know How You're Livin' Lyrics

by Lucinda Williams

I cared for you, dared to do
What I was never prepared to do
I've talked you down, driven you around
All, but followed you underground

I defended you, commended you
Seen it through till the end with you
I supported you, encouraged you
Comforted and consoled you

I don't know how you're livin'
I don't know where you are
And you may not be willing
To open up the door

If you should ever wonder
You shouldn't have to ask
'Cause I know you know, brother
I've always got your back

I've paid for you, I've borrowed for you
I've planned all my tomorrows for you
I believed in you, agreed with you
I've rolled up my sleeves for you

I fed you, I clothed you
I loved you and stood up for you
I've sided with you, I cried for you
I put my knees aside for you

But I don't know how you're livin'
And I don't know where you are
And you may not be willing
To open up the door

And if you should ever wonder
Well, you shouldn't have to ask
As I'll know you know, brother
I've always got your back

I've always got your back
