Booked my flight the other night
Retrieving all my laundry,
in a last plea you call me "wife"
that I'm anchored to that life
But why would I be?
Could this wasteland hold a fly?
I'd rather be free
than sit and sift through all the lies
My heart tugs at me
I want to hold you through the night
But infinity is
the horizon in my eyes
Darling, don't be afraid to face me
Please, hear me, please, don't evade me
What I'd give to keep the love we made, baby
But I must sing, you know I've been waiting...
This is my song for sundown
This is my song for saying goodbye
It's just been so long since we honestly tried
Whatever we've grown has withered and died
Yes, this is my song for sundown
This is my way of telling you why
Now don't you tell me it's wrong to make a grown man cry
'Cause I can still see that spark in your eye
I'm en route
I think about you as I drive
I want you
but I need a different life
In all truth
I feel the change is worth the strife
But it's too
soon to know if this is right
Oh, you must be at home
on bent knees, praying
I can feel all the sorrow you're conveying
But if I don't go I'd only be delaying
the ending for us, the song's already playing...
