Last night it came upon me
Got the blues upon sunrise
As I reached to touch your shoulder,
I was struck by the surprise

You packed up your belongings
Stole away into the night
Nary a sign is left of you here
Guess I'll lay back down and cry

Why do they always leave me?
Happens just about every time
And I can feel you haunting
through the back pitch of my mind

There's never been any reason
Never been no way to explain
Seems that luck is out of season
unless it's bad, then down it rains

Growing colder by the minute
Getting hardened by the day
I'm a lonely, loathsome creature
But I don't want to be that way

A bitter wind chills me to the bone
The bottle is dry and I feel so alone
This house is so empty now that you're gone
And I face the fact that I've done you wrong, yeah

Now I'm sure that you had to leave me,
To save yourself and your sanity
You'll find another, and I pray he's good to you
Better than I could ever be

Hope you find just what you need, as I lay right here and bleed
Together we will never be!
Through my soul a stormy rain, wrapped up in my old friend pain, forever!
It's my destiny

Sometimes I think I know the way
but find myself in a strange land
where I don't know my name

Left to the dogs, hung out to dry
Wish I could lay right down and die
I'm tryin', but life's not done with me!

Bye bye, bye bye baby!
