Nanci Griffith – I Would Change My Life lyrics
By Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
You never liked this place where we'd been living all alone
So you packed up your things and bought a one-way ticket home
And leaving never hurts as much as being left behind
I would change my life
I would make it right
I would change my life
If you would only change your mind
I have spent my hours on some misbegotten dream
I have spent my money on some foolish-hearted things
I have spent my memories on old and? Wine
Birds are flying south
To spend the wintertime
The skies are turning blue to grey
The fire we started here
Will soon be burning out
And it gets colder everyday
I wish that I could find the words to make you come back home
I wish that I could say the things you needed for so long
I wish that you could see me now, maybe then you'd find
