Packed his bags and drove
Across the bridge
To where she waits by the garden gates
On the porch with a lemonade
By the cherry trees, won't she be pleased?

'Cause when the call of Hollywood comes
You know it's time
To come home to where you know
That you've grown

Took her to the church
Put a ring around her neck
Like they did when they were kids
Just a dot on the map, but there he was
Ghost of a movie star
Road pointing home

On the lonely stretch before you forget
What it was
That brought you here and takes you
Near to your fate, don't wait

He buried something in this, wonderful
From castles in Spain where she came
It's for the people that you miss
The girls and boys that you'll never kiss

It's for what went wrong
It's for what went right
It's for what went wrong
It's for what went right

Appear silent on the tree
Branches below the moon
Singing bye bye
But the door is closing fast
On a past she can't go back

This fairytale won't warm your heart tonight
She's been broken, beaten, and bruised
But still believin'
I've been broken, beaten, and bruised
But still believin'

Still believin' in you
Still believin' in you
Still believin' in you
