Tree blows against my window
There's a storm brewin' in my heart
Watchin' credits roll on a late night TV show
Lonely street light peekin'
Through the cracks in the window shade
After all that he's seen, I wonder if he truly knows

Did he watch her when she slammed the door
Like a hammer against a nail
Leavin' me in what's become
A lonely prison cell?

I thought always meant forever
Guess you couldn't play second fiddle to my guitar
Like an old man drinkin' down at the tavern
I was one for the road; now you're headed on back home

I met you at a party, seems like only yesterday
We were fallin' in love and livin' to chase our dreams
I gave you flowers on Valentine's
And I had a strong feelin' deep and down inside
That someday we'd make a home and a family

I'd say I'm sorry in a heartbeat
If you would only let me
I could learn to forgive if you would only forget
A hotel room down in Austin
After another one night show
I caught your silhouette creepin' down the street
Under a moonlight glow

And as you took my hand
So went all my pain
We stepped right off the platform and caught the midnight train

And I thought always meant forever
And I won't make you play second fiddle to my guitar
Like an old man drinkin' down at the tavern
I was one for the road, and you headed on back home
