Hayden – 1939 lyrics

I once saw a girl on my lawn
She was so pretty and young
She walked right up and just said
"Your house is where I once lived"
She asked to look around
To see if she could find
The part of her she left behind
That she needed to move on
I didn't want to let her down
It was with her that I was found
So I lead her into my place
You should have seen her face
She said her name was Sam
And I let her know who I am
She asked if she could bathe
And I said: "Okay"
An hour went by and the door opened wide
And through the steam I saw her eyes
She said: "You saved my life"
It was with her that I was right
A week maybe two disappeared
She never came back around here
I asked the old man living beside
If he remembered Sam and he cried
The beauty he described
Was the girl I let inside
But what he said after I'll never forget
Until the day that I die
The girl I met drowned in the bath
In my house at 25
In 1939
It was with her that I tried
