Aspen, Colorado on a Saturday night
Jesse wishes she was at home
Upset because her baby just ain’t treatin’ her right
So afraid of being alone
Said she heard some stories he’s been runnin’ around
Said somehow she knows it’s all true
She says a breaking heart can make a terrible sound
She said she don’t know what to do

Think about a bad time, can’t get much worse
Think about a hard time, take it to the wall
This won’t be the last time, sure ain’t the first
The bigger they are, the harder they fall

You might say she’s caught between a rock and a hard place
You might say she just can’t win
Some just can’t recover from a slap in the face
Some just get right up and start all over again

Think about a bad time, can’t get much worse
Think about a hard time, take it to the wall
This won’t be the last time, sure ain’t the first
The bigger they are, the harder they fall

Think about a bad time, can’t get much worse
Think about a hard time, take it to the wall
This won’t be the last time, sure ain’t the first
The bigger they are, the harder they fall

Aspen, Colorado on a Saturday night
Jesse wishes she was at home
She’s mad because her baby just ain’t treatin’ her right
So afraid of being alone
So afraid of being alone
Nobody wants to be all alone
She don’t want to be all alone
So afraid of being alone
We don’t want to be all alone
