Song Lyrics

I am driving up 85 in the

kind of morning that lasts all afternoon

just stuck inside the gloom

Four more exits to my apartment but

I am tempted to keep the car in drive

and leave it all behind

Cause I wonder sometimes

about the outcome

of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?

Am I living it right?

Am I living it right?

Why, why Georgia, why?

I rent a room and I fill the spaces with

wood in places to make it feel like home

but all I feel`s alone

It might be a quarter life crisis

or just the stirring in my soul

Either way, I wonder sometimes

about the outcome

of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?

Am I living it right?

Am I living it right?

Why, why Georgia, why?

So what, so I`ve got a smile on me

but it`s hiding the quiet superstitions in my head

Don`t believe me

Don`t believe me

When I say I`ve got it down

Everybody is just a stranger but

that`s the danger in going my own way

I guess it`s the price I have to pay

still "Everything happens for a reason"

is no reason not to ask myself

If I`m living it right

Am I living it right?

Am I living it right?

Why, tell me why

Why, why Georgia why?

John Clayton Mayer (/ˈm.ər/; born October 16, 1977) is an American singer-songwriter and producer. He was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and raised in nearby Fairfield. He attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, but disenrolled and moved to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1997 with Clay Cook. Together, they formed a short-lived, two-man band called Lo-Fi Masters. After their split, Mayer continued to play local clubs—refining his skills and gaining a following. After his appearance at the 2001 South by Southwest Festival, he was signed to Aware Records, and then Columbia Records, which released his first EP, Inside Wants Out. His following two full-length albums—Room for Squares (2001) and Heavier Things (2003)—did well commercially, achieving multi-platinum status. In 2003, he won the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for the single "Your Body Is a Wonderland".
