In the Line of Fire

He’s got me in his crosshairs

About to break my heart

I see the signs every where

Our love is falling apart

There isn’t much tenderness

And talk is hit or miss

I am left feeling alone

There is no wedded bliss

So as I get ready to say goodbye

I fight back the flowing tears

Knowing we had a good run

Together almost 20 years

I walk away with my head up high

And know I will somehow survive

In fact I feel confident that I

Will maybe even one day thrive
