When she said "Don't wait for me when I go
You won't be the same man by the time that I get home"
So turn the T.V. on and pour another drink
And watch the night news without having to think
Because time it's so easy now to waste
I think I might just head on back home today
If all I am now is a shadow of my former selves
She said "Don't look back, you'll forget how to wait"
So I'll waste all my days and all my ways
Worrying about all the times that I didn't write
And as the light fell from the motel room to the swimming pool I knew
That I was almost done
