All the rain came down
On a cold new town
As he carried you away
From your father's hand
That always seemed like a fist
Reaching out to make you pay
He came like a hero from the factory floor
With the sun and moon as gifts
But the only son you ever saw
Were the two he left you with
Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low
Now the skirts hang so heavy around your head
That you never knew you were young
Because you played chance with a lifetime's romance
And the price was far too long
Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low
Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low
Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low
Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low
Oh Lord where did the feeling go
Oh Lord I never felt so low

    General CommentI interpret it as a young woman who was mistreated by her father. She meets a man who superficially represented an escape and seemingly promised a lifetime of happiness, a steady income and a roof over their heads etc. She moves to a new town to be with him, they have two kids, and then he leaves her, maybe after an affair or because he wasn't the man of her dreams she imagined him to be, and the family fell apart. Either way, she's left alone as a single mother, wondering what happened before realising she took a gamble to escape her unhappy home life ("Because you played chance with a lifetime's romance
    And the price was far too long") only to end up in an equally unhappy, if not worse situation.
    Depressing and hard-hitting lyrics, but a great track.
