From the album Along The Road
Table Set for Two
The song from the day I pulled into my driveway 2 hours early from work, unannounced. I didn’t mean for it to be a surprise.
I walked in from the road, to a house that was our home
there’s a table set for two but that’s not really something like what you’d do, and the candles’re all burned down and there’s dishes all around
as I step up to the stairs there’s a strange somethin’ in the air
and I walked up to the second floor put my hand up on the
bedroom door and there I pause as I can’t escape the
Ahhh .... I saw a table set for two ahhhh ... and its not for me and you
Ahhhh ... its a table set for two.
An if I’d had a gun, I don’t know what I woulda done,
it was bad enough as it was, I flipped the lights, said if you value your life
you gotta leave out on the run, and I didn’t want to see what was ’neath the sheets,
but I couldn’t tear my eyes away I’ll never forget, and I’ll never forgive,
like a brand that I carry to the end of my days
An I don’t . remember him leaving; don’t think I watched him run
An I don’t . remember my grieving; just let the darkness come
Took our vows, exchanged rings, that all changed when I walked in
An you had another man n my house, in my bed, I didn't want it t be true
You chose this life, you can live in your lies, but get out, I'm done with you
An I will rise from the ashes and fires and walk away a better man
I may be down, I may be out, but I’ll get up and I’ll fight again.
An I don’t remember her leaving, don’t think that I watched her run
Don’t remember my grieving, just let the darkness come
