Down The Road

Like water out of a faucet

The tears fall from my chin

They keep coming and coming

Trying to wash away

This unending pain

The one you left me

When you moved away

Down the drain

Goes my hopes of happiness

No one will ever

Be as important to me

As you were then

You turned away

And got on the bus

Like it was just for a trip downtown

While inside my heart shattered

As I watched the taillights

Fade into the distance
