The years have been turning on
You left me at home
To carve my own stone
I cried picking up pride
Oh, granite won't lie
We all got along
Well, it's true
Build this for you
A house fit for two
Is too small for you
Our son is losing his mind
His drugs that he hides
You can see in his veins
The steps he's needing to take
His back it might break
We both need you here
It's true
I build this for you
A house fit for two
Is too small for you
It's a shame
Leave you to blame
Changing your name
And left him insane
Return like a prodigal sheep
It's cold in the keep
But I have you here
I work hard then watch some TV
You staring at me
What are you doing there?
Get up, lay down your crown
What are you doing now?
Say I'm tired as hell
Yeah, I'm broke
Ain't got as much as you
To tell you the truth
Still am your man
It's true
I build this for you
A house fit for two
Is too small for you
It's a shame
Leave you to blame
Changing your name
And left me insane
The words on the tip of your tongue
Like a song I once sung
And you threw it away
That tune, old melody
Had hope in its ring
Those years never came
