Verse 1:
So long ago, I don't remember when.
That's when they say I lost my only friend.
Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease.
As I listened through the cemetery trees.

Verse 2:
I seen the sun coming up at the funeral at dawn.
The long broken arm of human law.
Now it always seemed such a waste.
She always had a pretty face.
So I wondered why she hung around this place.

Chorus:
Hey, come on try a little.
Nothing last forever.
There's got to be something better than in the middle.
Me & Cinderella, we put it all together.
We can drive it home with one headlight.

Verse 3:
She said it's cold.
It feels like Independence Day and I can't break away from this parade.
But there's got to be an opening somewhere here in front of me.
Through this maze of ugliness and greed.
And I seen the sun up ahead, at the county line bridge.
Saying all there's good and nothingness is dead.
We'll run until she's out of breath.
She ran until there's nothing left.
She hit the end. It's just her window ledge.

Chorus:
Hey, come on try a little.
Nothing last forever.
There's got to be something better than in the middle.
Me & Cinderella, we put it all together.
We can drive it home with one headlight.

Verse 4:
Well this place is old, it feels just like a beat up truck.
I turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn.
Well it smells of cheap wine & cigarettes.
This place is always such a mess.
Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn.
I'm so alone, and I feel just like somebody else.
Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same.
But somewhere here in between the city walls of dying dreams I think her
Death.
It must be killing me.

Chorus:
Hey, come on try a little.
Nothing last forever.
There's got to be something better than in the middle.
Me & Cinderella, we put it all together.
We can drive it home with one headlight.

    * From the artist*
    This is a cover of the 1997 hit "One Headlight" by the Wallflowers. Sitting in my car alone one sunny afternoon it dawned on me that this would make an excellent dance song, mostly due to the pulsating rhythm of the bass guitar. I went to the studio the very next day and tried some different synth patches on this song. I'm not sure what the song is really about but for me I feel it expresses a disappointment for the sad life of someone who has died without purpose. I believe we all think about death fairly often, it's part of what makes us human. So for me, even though the lyrics are deeply sad, they hold an extremely important message. What started as a simple recording experiment for fun turned out to be a really great musical moment captured on tape.
