lyrics

We borrowed money, we borrowed time
planned to leave before the next sunrise
But an hour till, you told me that you had to go
But you'd be back in a little while
I just had to sit there practicing my smile
Cause we hadn't had much reason for smiling in years

But baby it's hard
Carrying a load
Over fences through the yards
All the way back home
She tells me that she's sorry
Didn't mean to put it on me
I tell her not to worry
I'm doing just fine

I lie a little say it don't hurt much but my
Bones are aching, burning to her touch as I'm
Carrying her cold, lifeless body back home
Body back home
Body back home

We planned to meet out on a road out back
Where the lights were low and the moon was but a crack in the sky
Live or die
Tomorrow we'll be leaving this town
Well I saw her there where the light was low
Her body laid bare by the side of the road
And I felt my heart claw it's way
From out of my chest

But baby it's hard
Carrying a load
Over fences through the yards
All the way back home
I tell her I'm so sorry
I know I should've been there
She tells me boy don't worry
I know you'll do just fine

I scream my lungs out
But no one could hear
Like a tree alone in the forest
Has nothing to fear
I loaded my pistol
Having no one to blame
Once I'd laid her in the ground
I slaughtered the whole town
Just the same
