I was in the honeymoon suite at the Canmore Hotel
I was drunk, I was dying of loneliness, and looking like hell
It was seventeen years to the day since you'd turned me down
And the locals were brawling, the bar was emptying out

Did you get all those letters I sent? Are you thinking of me?
Did you hide them in drawers? Under cushions? In pockets? Up sleeves?
Well, the heater is broken, but at least I've got a TV

Well, imagine we'd run away together and made it this far
We'd get married for ninety-two dollars in Riverside Park
The three sisters would cry, and tie cans to the back of my car
And I'd be in the honeymoon suite and not back in the bar

The next morning the weather was perfect, so I went for a drive
Through the mountains and past little homes, little kids playing outside
A wife and a husband, a life that should have been mine
