The Wallflowers

One Headlight

Lyrics

playSo long ago, I don't remember when
playThat's when they say I lost my only friend
playWell they said
playshe died easy of a broken heart disease
playAs I listened through the cemetery trees

playI seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
playThe long broken arm of human law
playNow it always seemed such a waste,
playshe always had a pretty face
playSo I wondered how she hung around this place

playHey, come on try a little
playNothing is forever
playThere's got to be something better than
playIn the middle
playBut me and Cinderella
playWe put it all together
playWe can drive it home
playWith one headlight

playShe said it's cold
playIt feels like Independence Day
playAnd I can't break away from this parade
playBut there's got to be an opening
playSomewhere here in front of me
playThrough this maze of ugliness and greed
playAnd I seen the sun up ahead
playat the county line bridge
playSayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead
playWe'll run until she's out of breath
playShe ran until there's nothin' left
playShe hit the end, it's just her window ledge

playHey, come on try a little
playNothing is forever
playThere's got to be something better than
playIn the middle
playBut me and Cinderella
playWe put it all together
playWe can drive it home
playWith one headlight

playWell this place is old
playIt feels just like a beat up truck
playI turn the engine,
playbut the engine doesn't turn
playWell it smells of cheap wine, cigarettes
playThis place is always such a mess
playSometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn
playI'm so alone and
playI feel just like somebody else
playMan, I ain't changed,
playbut I know I ain't the same
playBut somewhere here in between
playthe city walls of dyin' dreams
playI think of death, it must be killin' me

playHey, hey hey come on try a little
playNothing is forever
playThere's got to be something better than
playIn the middle
playBut me and Cinderella
playWe put it all together
playWe can drive it home
playWith one headlight
