She grabbed a shot of Patrone
Then reached for her phone
It was time to tell him goodbye.
Smiling at a stranger
He doesn’t know the danger
Yet this one she won’t even try.
For years she loved a man
Though they didn’t have a plan
They just went where their hearts said to go.
Tired of the wait
Being second rate
It was time to pull the curtain on this show.
She tried to stop loving
It was really something
She made the call that night.
He cried and he begged for her to stay
But she’d already decided not to play
And tonight, she was tired of the fight.
The heart and the mind
Always taking turns at what they find
And you, always getting lost in the lie.
Tonight she’ll empty her phone
Tip her hat to the throne
Because tonight, she’s going to die.
His one last call to her was brief
It was a moment of agonizing grief
When he realized he’d lost her at last.
She boarded a plane for a while
Because she really wanted to go out in style
Why not do it right there where you live?
She started thinking of days gone by
How much she hated to fly
How little you had to give.
Anger started coming
She started softly humming
All the while the plane flew.
She hadn’t lost the love inside
Not an ounce of it would subside
When in that moment, she decided instead it would be you.
