You left me standin’ in the middle of the stairs.
i didn’t know whether to go up or down.
You left me wondering.
Why, oh, why did i ever come to this town?
i got a suitcase under my bed.
It’s full of letters that I’ve already read.
i can’t remember the last thing she said.
Oh, why, why did i ever come to this town?

And i said, “Angel, you can’t mend me (this time).”
And i said, “Angel, you can’t befriend me.
No you can’t mend me, I’m a broken man.”

i hit the bottom and the bottom fell out.
i think I’m drowning in a teaspoon of doubt.
i hear my momma in the back of my mind.
Oh, i think it’s time.
i think it’s time.

And i said, “Angel, you can’t mend me (this time).”
And i said, “Angel, you can’t befriend me.
No you can’t mend me, I’m a broken man.”
