There was a pretty girl
From some small suburb of Dallas
She came up to New York with a dream

In the confusion and the noise
All of her beauty and poise
Turned grey like snow beside the city street

She met a boy named Steven
They made love in his apartment
In a second story walk up out in Queens
The things she hoped to find beneath him on that August night
Was the furthest from her as she dressed to leave

So she hides her eyes
Says a slow goodbye
Swears by the morning light
She'll be fine

At a wedding in Connecticut
The mother of the bride
Day dreams about her husband who's just passed
She stands to give her toast
She says the only thing I know
Is when you find a love that's worth it
Make it last

So she chokes back her tears
Speaks of all her daughter's years
30 Christmas' of memories that she keeps
The speech was sad and sweet
She kisses guests as they leave
Then heads up to her hotel room to eat

So she bides her time
Says a slow goodbye
Swears by the morning light
She'll be fine

She hides her eyes
Though it's hard some nights
She'll take her own sweet time
And she'll be fine

A welder who spent 20 years
Working in an auto plant
Gets laid off on a Thursday afternoon

He grips the 45 that rests in the glove box as he drives
Then puts the gun away and wonders what to do
So he parks in his driveway
Head against the steering wheel
Tries to think of what to tell his wife

In the kitchen he explains
Swears they'll be okay
She says "you're the only thing that I need in this life"

So he bides his time
Says a slow goodbye
Swears by the morning light he'll be fine

He hides his eyes
Though it's hard some nights
He'll take his own sweet time and he'll be fine
