I carry you with me and it's a heavy load
Lay down my burden on the side of the road
Nothing much to do and there's nowhere left to go
I've worn out my shoes and you've worn down my soul
Oh oh    oh oh oh   worn down my soul

Nothing much to do and there's nowhere left to go
She lays down her cigarette turns off the radio
She never meant to do harm but yet she ties off her arm
Stares out the window at the truck parked outside the barn
Oh oh    oh oh oh   oh    oh

Days pass each one is much the same sometimes it's dry sometimes it rains
And when she speaks she can't explain why pain is the remedy for pain
Walking down the street she wishes that she could just go back home
Sitting at the table wonders why she's always alone
Oh oh    oh oh oh   always alone

I never meant to let you go I never meant to let you go
I never meant to let you go I never meant to let you go
Oh oh     oh oh oh    but I let you go
Oh oh     oh oh oh    but I let you go

Hope come to me and spread your wings throw your shelter over everything
And damn it's lovely when she sings but she doesn't sing to me
Her face has turned away once more a shadow cast down on the floor
And I wonder what I'm waiting for I wonder what I'm waiting for
Oh oh     oh oh oh   What am I waiting for And I
Oh  oh    oh oh oh   What am I waiting for?
