By David Allan Coe And Jimmy Townsend

THREES A STACK OF DAILY PAPERS ON HER DOORSTEP

AND THE GRASS HAS GROWN UP MORE THAN SHE'D ALLOW

YES, IT SEEMS TO ME TO BE A LITTLE MORE LIKE A VACATION

NEVER KNEW THAT I'D MISS HER UNTIL NOW



FROM BOTH ENDS THE CANDLE SEEMS TO BURN MUCH BRIGHTER

GUESS SHE SAW THE FLAME I TRIED SO HARD TO HIDE

LOOKS LIKE IM THE ONE THAT GOT CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE

BURNT MY FINGER

I GOT THERE JUST IN TIME TO WATCH LOVE DIE

YEA, I GOT THERE JUST IN TIME TO WATCH LOVE DIE



THERE'S A CHANGE OF ADDRESS BLANK INSIDE THE MAILBOX

AND THE KEY she'd USUALLY LEAVE FOR ME NOT HERE

YES, it's PLAIN TO SEE THAT SHE NO LONGER WANTS AN EXPLANATION

GUESS I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN I WOULD NOT FIND HER HERE





FROM BOTH ENDS THE CANDLE SEEMS TO BURN MUCH BRIGHTER

I GUESS SHE SAW THE FLAME I TRIED SO HARD TO HIDE

LOOKS LIKE IM THE ONE THAT GOT CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE

BURNT MY FINGER

I GOT THERE JUST IN TIME TO WATCH LOVE DIE

BUT I GOT THERE MUCH TO LATE TO SAY GOODBYE.
