now honey, dry your eyes
get back in the car
there's no need to end it this way
that's what she said
when i shot off the head of a love on that one saturday
i've got my share of faults
this much is true
i talk too much about me to everyone i know
the one thing that i do now
is talk more about you and how
i can't believe i just let you go

there's never a pill
strong enough to make me feel
like all your fingers could do
i passed your place, i saw your car, i thought of you

there goes that guy i know
comes to all my shows
stealing every move i'm about
and he's a little bit younger
and a hell of a lot more fit
and i hate his mouth and everything that comes out
but there's one thing i know
is you can't trust a man
it's a species that captures things
just to let them go
and he bought you drinks every night
til the bait you would bite
and you're the sweetest thing from me he stole

there's never a pill
strong enough to make me feel
like all your fingers could do
i passed your place, i saw his car, i thought of you

i never got to say
before you passed away
that love was just a word before you showed it to me
20 years ago when i just let you go
i didn't think this is where'd you'd be
now honey, dry your eyes
and get back to your life
there's no need to take it this way
that's what i tell myself
in the mirror by the shelf
where your picture still hangs today

there's never a pill
strong enough to make me feel
like all your fingers could do
i passed your place, there was no car, i thought of you

    General CommentI feel like this song is pretty self explanatory - it's about regret for a finished relationship and a woman that he obviously still misses a lot.

    Personally, I feel that it is one of Walker's most beautiful songs.
