I couldn’t tell him then, it had only been three weeks and perhaps I was jumping to conclusions.
I couldn’t tell him then, it had only been six months and I may have still been full of childish delusions.
And I couldn’t tell him at wintertime with it being so cold out
And I couldn’t tell him in spring time with flowers all about
And I couldn’t tell him at our first anniversary that he would never be exactly right for me
I couldn’t seem to find the right time to admit I wanted to leave
So I dreamed I waited til the kids graduated,
waited til he finally retired
And then one minute after his heart was finally ready to expire
I told him how I was feeling after this lifetime of one sided lies
And he said thank you baby, I can die in peace lady
cause I felt the same way this whole time…
