4th Place
“Can’t Afford To Let It Go”
Matt Jordan
Glencoe, Missouri

Verse:
I’ve got a 65 Chevy in the driveway
It don’t run right anymore
It’s got 2 flat tires and the brakes are out
Weathers rusted up the doors
But the bench seat smells like your perfume
You left your jacket when I took you home
So I can’t afford to fix it
But I can’t afford to let it go

Still living where you left me
There’s dirty dishes in the sink
But everytime I try to wash ’em
I see you dryin ’em next to me
Your lipsticks on the coffee cups
Your memory haunts this home
So I can’t afford to fix it
But I can’t afford to let it go

Bridge:
I guess when you said forever
You meant you’d leave someday
Said we’d always be together
But you walked out anyway
You made a promise just to break it
Lookin back I should’ve known
It’s too late now to fix it
But I can’t afford to let it go

Verse:
My hearts just like that old truck
It’s tired of carryin on
If I’ve got a chance to change your mind
I pray to god you hear this song
I’ve tried picking up the pieces
But they’re scattered and I’m alone
No I can’t afford to fix it
But I can’t afford to let it go
