lyrics

Quaint house with a backyard where the kids can play
Front porch and two chairs for when we’re old and gray
Your left hand, where the comfort of forever’s found
Two hearts, but one’s buried underneath the ground

Dark coats on a cold November day
And when the hurt shows bite my lip so I don’t have to say
I miss you but we’ll be together soon
It’s like our friends say, just got to make it through this afternoon

Quaint house, but it’s quiet now that kids are gone
Cracked walls, and I’m counting all the bruises on my
Left hand, where the comfort of forever lied
Eyes closed, in the morning I’ll sleeping be by your side

Dress my lover in a patchy old skirt
Color it brown to match the surrounding dirt
Tell my mama it’ll be okay
Tell her I’m sorry that I’m beating her to the grave

I am getting sick of seeing other people kiss
Holding tight their sweethearts' hand with arms around their neck
Two drinks and a rope, a shaky hand to write my note
When you find me here, I hope you’ll read the words I wrote

Before long
I will sing this song
And I’ll be gone tonight
