Room 204

Picture of Adeline

Try as hard as I might

Just couldn't let her go...

I’m just heading south

Guess I got my reasons

Had to get me out

Of the shape I was living in

 

Foul in my mouth

The bitter taste of treason

Try as hard as I might

Just couldn’t let her go

 

I got this picture of Adeline

Burning in my hand

She left me cold that Sunday

And took up with another man

Got this picture of Adeline

It’s all that I got left

Staring at me from another time

Picture of Adeline

 

Devil kicked the dust

Spun a jealous season

Gold turned to rust

My blood boiling high

 

She put the dagger in deep

No stopping the bleeding

You can’t steal a man’s light

And expect not to pay

 

I got this picture of Adeline

Burning in my hand

She left me cold that Sunday

And took up  with another man

Got this picture of Adeline

It’s all that I got left

Starin’ at me from a sweeter time

 

I got this picture of Adeline

All painted with pretend

Hand in hand up on Union bridge

We were something then

 

I drove up to Rockford

I couldn’t take no more

I was gonna bring the thunder down

Bring my thunder right to her door

 

But when she stood before me

All my rage just turned to clay

I kissed her on the cheek

And walked away ..I just walked away

 

Now I’m just heading south

See I got my reasons

Had to get me out

Of the shape I was living in

 

I got this picture of Adeline

Burning in my hand

She left me cold that Sunday

And took up  with my best friend

Got this picture of Adeline

It’s all that I got left

Every mile and every highway sign
