Never Really Gone

Doctor says I ain't gonna make the morning
Preacher says I ain't gonna make the cut
Mama say I should've heeded her warnings
My pretty woman don't say nothing but

She sits there in the rocking chair in our house
Thinking what nobody else will say
She licks the tear as it hits the corner of her mouth
And a crying smile creeps across her face

The Sun is always chased down by the moonlight
The Moon is always chased down by the dawn
There ain't no chance in staying
No matter how you play it
So play it like you ain't got long
If you live inside the heart of someone else then you're never really gone

Remember when we got drunk and threw bottles
At the cars in town as they drove past
And the next day we punctured our bike tyres
Trying to ride through that same broken glass

When I think back now on all them nights we lived through
And every one we said would be the last
The next night we'd be out there in that gutter again
Drunk before the hangover had passed

The Sun is always chased down by the moonlight
The Moon is always chased down by the dawn
There ain't no chance in staying
No matter how you play it
So play it like you ain't got long
If you live inside the heart of someone else then you're never really gone

So hold my hand as you sit in that rocking chair
When everybody leaves and it's just us
Tell me that you'll never love anyone again
And if you do you'll try not loving them as much
Tell me what you were thinking when you were crying through that smile
Tell me what nobody else will say
Then climb into this bed with me and hold me til the morning
It was always gonna go this way
It always goes this way

The Sun is always chased down by the moonlight
The Moon is always chased down by the dawn
There ain't no chance in staying
No matter how you play it
So play it like you ain't got long
If you live inside the heart of someone else then you're never really gone
