No thanks, close this window
This happened to a friend of a friend. (They have no idea that we have a song about it...)
Wife discovers that husband has been seeing someone else, after several troubling signs, and finally has to admit it to herself. Understated rural blues feel. Slide guitar in background reveals her torment. Feels like a summer night in Louisiana...
A silver moon and silver clouds running threads across the sky
Like silvers dreams running through my head, I watch them pass me by
The night air is heavy without a breeze, as my thoughts speak right out loud
You must be working late again, why else would you be out...
So late, so late, so late, so late
Am I the last to figure out what everyone else can see?
Could it be those diamond earrings were for someone else not me?
I found them in your favorite drawer, where you didn't think I'd see
But my birthday's passed and it's six months 'til our anniversary
The clock is ticking on endlessly, its big numbers turning small
You've been gone since early evening, haven't heard from you at all
The sun is waking up the dawn, the sky turns from gray to blue
I'm holding back the tears as I hear a car, but it's not you
And it's so late, so late. It's so late, so late.
