I Heard Every Word She Said
I heard every word she said

Gave a nod with every line

Hung on every little thread

just wasn't listening at the time

She said we need to talk

And I willingly obliged

but I didn't hear the cries

She was with me for a while

Every temperance, every trial

But, I never thought to see the other side
She's standing at the door
Where she's stood a hundred times, Giving me a little smile
But it's not that friendly kind, more like she's giving me a sign
That she's leaving for real this time
Lead break

It's too late to be leaving', but much too late to stay
So many times she spoke the truth ...now there's hell to pay

As I look back in my mind, she'd tried so many times
To help me feel the pain in her heart
So long so out of touch, now it's time to settle up
As she walks away and leaves it all behind
