LyricsEdit

I wanted to know you and love you right
Take your hand, and be a man and you'd be my wife
I wanted to see you everyday
Buy you flowers, and say the things people say when they're in love

But that notion is gone from me

I remember a day in mid-July
Driving home and thinking about how I wanted to die
With a broken heart and broken hands
Broken feet not meant to walk the land towards any other girl
I wanted to find you after you broke my heart And take you for a ride out in my car that would end in tragedy

But that notion is gone from me

Well the fields out there, they really do
Resemble the sea when the tide is new and the wind is kicking hard
On a day like this, you can't complain
But folks like me, we find a way to do it anyway
I wanted to write a song so sad
That when people heard it it made them sad like me
So I'd have some company

But that notion is gone from me
Yes, that notion is gone from me
