Contessa, Contessa, oh please leave your hat by the doorWell, I thought I told you you couldn’t call round anymoreAnd outside in the street and the rains turning tricks on the dayContessa, I’ve told you so why do you come anyway?Well, ten years ago by the motorway bridge with a smileAnd your red lacquer shoes, oh you lived inside me for a whileI had an old cow bone that I used to draw hearts in the dustContessa please tell me just what the hell happened to us‘Cause I’ve goneGone run that roadI’ve goneGone run that roadRun that road homeI was a scared little kid with a head full of hormones and holesWith one eye on atonement and a body already grown oldThere you were with your secrets and your notebook of genuine liesSaying “girl it's your party but you sure as hell don’t wanna cry, don’t wanna cry”I’ve goneGone run that roadI’ve goneGone run that roadRun that road homeYeah, run that road homeSo I was the black sheep, yeah, I was the lone cavalierBut with a face like stone, oh Connie it's lonely out hereI’ve taken some pills and I’ve played with the hand I was dealtAnd you saved me that time but now I’ve learned to save myselfAnd I’ve goneGone run that roadI’ve goneGone run that roadRun that road homeOh, run that road homeYeah, run that, run that, rung that, run that, road homeYeah, run that road home
