(Shannon Lawson/Alan Peters)

You slipped off your wedding band
And tucked it deep inside my head
Forced a smile and headed towards the door
And as you walked out,I heard you say
"Things just haven't been going our way
"And I don't love you anymore"
Now,after the day I had
I could have done without that

I'd rather watch the house we built
Burn to the ground
An stand out in the pouring rain
Let the good Lord strike me down
Than to sit here and watch you walk away
Anything would be better than your goodbye on a bad day

I've seen that look,I can always tell
It means "Stay away from me and go straight to hell"
That's exactly where I'll be when you're gone
And after a day like this,my whole world's gone

I'd rather watch the house we built
Burn to the ground
An stand out in the pouring rain
Let the good Lord strike me down
Than to sit here and watch you walk away
Anything would be better than your goodbye on a bad day

Oh,you're the one thing I have left
When the whole world holds me down
Now,how can I keep going when you're not around?

I'd rather watch the house we built
Burn to the ground
An stand out in the pouring rain
Let the good Lord strike me down
Than to sit here and watch you walk away
Anything would be better than your goodbye on a bad day

Oh,oh,oh
Oh,oh,oh

To Fade Out
