lyrics

When I was on my own
I was free but lonely
Then you stole my heart
I thought of you only

But now I just can’t do
what you want me to
And though I try so hard, broken bones, broken heart, nothing’s pleasing you

What fate brought us here
Loving you, loving me?
Our straight narrow road disappeared

Never had much time
I grew up to quickly
I fell head to heels
Now I’m feeling sickly

‘Cuz that house won’t clean
without hands and knees
And our babies cry
Every day, every night
But you pay no mind

What fate brought us here
Loving you, loving me?
Our straight narrow road disappeared

Did we get it wrong?
Our dreams they are gone
Oh what have we done?
Our straight narrow road ain’t no more, Good Lord!

We’ve been on the run
Since we have begun
Ain’t no time for fun
Our straight narrow road ain’t no more, Good Lord!

You knew from the start
That we’d drift apart
And yet here we are
Our straight narrow ain’t no more

Give us eyes to see
Why we fall in love
And what we’re fighting for
And we’ll be on that straight narrow road once more

Darling, who are you?
I’m a different woman
And Honey, who am I?
You’re a changing person

And though we cannot say
The price we’ll pay
There’s a saving grace in the words that we spoke
on our wedding day

What grace brought us here, loving you, loving me?
Our straight narrow road disappeared.
