It was a long time coming
and a dark road home
She turned out the lights
Didn't need him anymore

So he stood outside
in the desolate cold
Picture frames strew about
left for him to hold...

You see he loved the girl
and her little boy too
But there's just some things
you know he couldn't do

So he took a drive
down Dead River Road
Turned the ignition off
on his 55' Olds
and he prayed...and he prayed...

Oh God, please don't let it be this way
There's so much more that I can change
Oh God, please don't let it end this way
On the doorstep of St. Charles Place

She says she's better off
now he's gone
The words she spoke still
ringing strong
To him it all feels
just like a blur
yet he can't breakaway
from the ghost of her.
