lyrics

I can hear commotion breathing still
And can still remember how it felt
I can see the motion
Of the throw that broke the spirit
Of the marriage with a crushing final blow

I was just a boy inside my shoes
But upstairs I was less and less confused
I knew that it was ending
And there's no sense in pretending
There's anything that anyone could lose

Come on too strong
Find your self committed
To someone you can't live with
Looking out for snippets you can lean on
Baby, when the thrill is gone

I don't remember how they used to treat
The other like a prophet or a thief
It seemed like love was only
A condition of the lonely
But still I found it near enough to keep

Now I have never thought to settle down
The wanderlust inside me's just too loud
I can't decide on anything
A wedding ring or baby name
I'm happy with a night out on the town

Come on too strong
Find your self committed
To someone you can't live with
Looking out for snippets you can lean on
Baby, when the thrill is gone

Now dad is gone and mom is going strong
She was by his side when he passed on
He said you are my angel, there’s no way that I can thank you
She smiled and said our son will write a song

Come on too strong
Find your self committed
To someone you can't live with
Looking out for snippets you can lean on
Baby, when the thrill is gone
