SHE SPENDS HER DAYS
(JEFF AND MARK)

SHE BOUGHT HER HOUSE WHEN INTEREST RATES WERE LOW,
A LITTLE SMALL BUT YET SHE KNOWS
EASILY THERE'S ROOM ENOUGH FOR TWO.
SHE THOUGHT SHE KNEW HIM WELL,WHO KNEW?

IT SEEMS SHE GAVE THE BEST YEARS OF HER LIFE
A PASSING PHASE, A WOULD-BE WIFE
AND NOW SHE'S STARING AT THE TUBE
NO OTHER THOUGHTS EXCEPT FOR YOU

SHE SPENDS HER DAYS WAITING FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN,
AS IF SOMEDAY IT WILL
SHE SPENDS HER NIGHTS THINKIN' THAT YOUR COMIN' BACK
AND YOU KNOW SHE ALWAYS WILL, IF YOU ONLY WILL

SHE HANGS ON EVERY WORD HE EVER SAID
IMPLYING THINGS HE NEVER MEANT
SO SURE HE'S FEELING THE SAME WAY
BUT GETS MORE DESPERATE EVERY DAY

(CHORUS)

EVERYONE KEEPS TELLING HER, IT'S TIME TO WALK AWAY,
BUT SHE JUST TURNS HER BED, AND THINKS HE'S COMING BACK TODAY.
