Where I Been Tonight (With Steve Fleming)

1997

You called me a rough diamond, that needs just a little shine
A little pillow talk smiling, you asked me where I’d been hiding all your life
Now every time I’m home late from work, you get so all uptight
a coupla beers, and all I hear is, “where you been tonight?”

Well, let me tell ya:

I been out
I been in
I been face down in a bucket a gin
I been bad
I been good
I been everything I said I never would
I been way too party
Way too rowdy
Way too many times
So baby where I been all my life
Is where I been tonight

You always talk about forever, you’re forever making plans
You self help vixen, in your mind you’re mixing up your own kind of man
You’re always asking me for a commitment; now I’m committed without a doubt
But they only give me one phone call, so please, baby, bail me out

I can explain:

I been bad
I been caught
I been strip searched in a parking lot
I been jailed
I been cuffed
My cellmate swears he’s falling in love
I been way too party
Way too rowdy
Way too many times
So baby where I been all my life
Is where I been tonight
