This ache that follows you down from wherever you both came from
Well it won't leave quietly, it just waits here noisily with me
I turn to go but quite instead
It sinks it's fangs into my head
And gnaws upon me like a greedy bone
The fragrant scent of parts unknown
I try my best but it gets worse
And fearful of this blessed curse
The moon is full I feel my teeth
My instincts give no sympathy for me

And all I want is to stay here with you for at least a couple of minutes more
In your front seat by any reason I can find, my right foot still dangling out your door
This ache that follows you down from wherever you both came from
Well it won't leave quietly, it just waits here noisily with me
The pots and pans and bare-assed bones would have me feeling all alone
But never fear the ache is there and calmly he pulls up a chair
And through the night we play some hands while the ache, he issues his demands
Yeah the ache, he issues his demands and I'm like Custer at his lemonade stand

And all I have is this ache, just to see you again though I've got no pretext to
And hope won't quench my thirst this time
Can't you see that I'm aching for you?

I go to sleep when I awake
In the kitchen is my ache
He cooks me breakfast, ties my shoes
Puts in the time, he pays my dues
He sticks a needle in my eye and haunts me like some tragic lie
Reminds me 'till I bend to break that I've been given the gift of this ache that followed you down from wherever you both came from
Well it won't leave quietly, it just waits here noisily with me
This ache that followed you down from wherever you both came from
This ache that followed you down from wherever you both came from
Well it won't leave quietly, it just waits here noisily with me
