Stories To Tell
by Dave Barnes



 

She bought a ticket on a midnight train,
To a place she’d never leave again.
She blamed it on her daddy’s sins,
I blamed it all on me.

I was just a foolish boy,
It was love enough to fill the void.
Said the words to hear the noise,
It was deafening.

I never knew that things would change,
What we were then, what we became,
We were seventeen.

They found her there late that night,
On a bed under hotel lights.
Trying to make a couple wrong things right,
Start over clean.

She never did say goodbye,
I never did apologize.
I knew the words, but I could not lie,
I just watched her leave.

I never knew that things would change,
What we were then, what we became,
We were seventeen.
We wasted time, we wasted tears,
We waved goodbye to golden years,
We were seventeen.

Beneath the wreckage there’s a reason, a reason,
Something they looked so hard to see.
I took and placed the blame, but still I feel the same,
Someone just say it wasn’t me.

I don’t think about her like I should,
I used to try but it did no good.
She’d forgive me if she only could,
We were seventeen.
