Well I worked most my life it seems
So I could give her everything
She could ever want when the day is done

Always felt I was robbed of time
Holding her in my arms all night
She meant more to me than the morning sun

Though I tried not to think about her
My dreams won't let me forget
After every time that we made love
She'd light a cigarette

She had my schedule down
When I'd be working out of town
But I forgot to tell her I'd be home

It was sure to be a good surprise
Just to see the fire in her eyes
I didn't bother picking up the phone

So I saw them through the window
Of our room
Oh, I can't believe what she said

Well, she told him that she loved him and she missed him
And then, she lit a cigarette

Well I drove off into the night
I Cleared my head by morning light
There's no going back for a heart that's been betrayed
I knew that he'd come back again
Cause I'll never forget her telling him that I'd be gone for a couple days

I waited til they both were in our room
I turned the gas on and I left
Sittin' in my truck watching the sun come up
And then, she lit a cigarette

Sittin' in my truck watching the sun come up
And then, she lit a cigarette
