  1. The Look Upon Her Face

From the album A Ride

Lyrics

The Look Upon Her Face


She lays legs sprawled naked on the floor
Like a sacrificed mermaid on the shore
I can hear the rush of traffic in the street
It’s the hardest thing to get back on your feet
I take a leak and wash my face in the sink
Feeling watched by her petty private things
Fetch a beer from the fridge to cut the edge
Off the million thoughts that buzz inside my head

She said she lied
because it still seemed possible she might
Find a way
To spare the ones she loved the most the pain
She believed
She could find her way back to me
And if she only tried
Everything would be alright

As the gate snaps shut when I leave
I know I ain’t never gonna come back here
There is a cold wind blowing from the north
Like there’s never been a wind blowing before

How could I forget
The look upon her face when she said
I want it all
Lover please don’t ever let me fall
She believed
She could find a way back to me
And that if she only tried
Everything would be alright
Everything would be alright
