On her own, and she’s got a plan
And a new man who’s got plans of his own
Just a boy, but he thinks he knows
How daddies should act when you’re with them alone
He watched the mirror go under the door
Frowned when his key didn’t work anymore
Stared at the mask that was hiding her face
Off on his own to a frightening place

Town after town
Settling down where he first heard his name
Giving it a try
And finding out some things are always the same
Second chances come along but once in a while
But being a father was cramping his style
Proving again there’s only room for one
Either your lover, addiction, or son

Twenty years going by
Really can fly at a hundred and two
Shaken out of my dreams
Somehow when the phone rang I already knew
That’s why I’m headed to Franklin and back
That’s why my clothes are unusually black
They’ll cry and they’ll say that we’ll see him one day
But you don’t know where things go once you’ve thrown them away
You never know where things go once you’ve thrown them away
