Sometimes you can't walk away from the things that remind your heart it's broken.
Old red shutter hanging by a hinge
Old wall falls away
Car wheels slow but I won’t cringe
Slowly look away

Bastard weeds the roses hide
Porch door creaks and moans
No evidence of love inside
No memory of home

So hard to pray for the ones who have
Everything I thought I wanted
Everything I had…we once had

For rent sign on a rusted hinge
Lonesome does it sway
Car wheels slow but I won’t cringe
Slowly look away

Nothing here you need or want
Nothing you can use
Your living in a new house now
I’m living in the blues
