Mary the station is playing every sad song
i remember, like we were alive
And i heard and sung them all from inside of these walls
in a prison cell where we spent those nights

and they burned up the diner, where i always used to find her
licking young boys blood from her claws
and i learnt about the blues from this kitten i knew
her hair was raven, heart was like a tomb
my heart's like a womb

but i saw tail lights last night
in a dream about my first wife
and everybody leaves, and i'd expect as much from you
and i saw tail lights last night
in a dream about my old life
everybody leaves and why, why wouldn't you?

Mary i worried and stalled every night of my life
better safe then making the party
and i never had a good time, i sat by your bedside
with papers and poetry about Estella
Great expectations, we had the greatest expectations

but i saw tail lights last night
in a dream about my first wife
and everybody leaves, and i'd expect as much from you
and i saw tail lights last night
in a dream about my old life
everybody leaves and why, why wouldn't you?

I can't go on, my head has grown too heavy
i need that song, those trusty chords could pull me through
and early on, saw the warning signs and symptoms all day long
wonder how far from here well fall -
we were always waiting, always waiting
we were always waiting for something to happen

i saw tail lights last night
in a dream about my first wife
and everybody leaves and i'd expect as much from you
and i saw tail lights last night
in a dream about my old life
everybody leaves and why, why wouldn't you?

why wouldn't you?
