The Wallflowers

One Headlight

Lyrics

play So long ago, I don't remember when
play That's when they say I lost my only friend
play Well they said
play she died easy of a broken heart disease
play As I listened through the cemetery trees

play I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
play The long broken arm of human law
play Now it always seemed such a waste,
play she always had a pretty face
play So I wondered how she hung around this place

play Hey, come on try a little
play Nothing is forever
play There's got to be something better than
play In the middle
play But me and Cinderella
play We put it all together
play We can drive it home
play With one headlight

play She said it's cold
play It feels like Independence Day
play And I can't break away from this parade
play But there's got to be an opening
play Somewhere here in front of me
play Through this maze of ugliness and greed
play And I seen the sun up ahead
play at the county line bridge
play Sayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead
play We'll run until she's out of breath
play She ran until there's nothin' left
play She hit the end, it's just her window ledge

play Hey, come on try a little
play Nothing is forever
play There's got to be something better than
play In the middle
play But me and Cinderella
play We put it all together
play We can drive it home
play With one headlight

play Well this place is old
play It feels just like a beat up truck
play I turn the engine,
play but the engine doesn't turn
play Well it smells of cheap wine, cigarettes
play This place is always such a mess
play Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn
play I'm so alone and
play I feel just like somebody else
play Man, I ain't changed,
play but I know I ain't the same
play But somewhere here in between
play the city walls of dyin' dreams
play I think of death, it must be killin' me

play Hey, hey hey come on try a little
play Nothing is forever
play There's got to be something better than
play In the middle
play But me and Cinderella
play We put it all together
play We can drive it home
play With one headlight
