She got our stuff together
And we left a little glow
It was raining anyway
As we got back up to the road
Beside her on the bed
I never thought that she would doubt me
But something struck me as she said
There was something curious about me

And it rang just like a mission bell
And fell in through my ear
And I thought that she could tell
There's something broken in here

There was something there in her
I kinda recognized in me
Fear and sorrow and suspicion
Hidden somewhere underneath

And it rang just like a mission bell etc

I've been here long enough by now
Smelling where the dogs are buried
I should stay away from town
Until the day she's married
And in unfamiliar places
Where nobody knows my name
I'll smile at pretty faces
That won't bring on any shame

And it rang just like a mission bell etc

And it rang just like a mission bell etc
