Sitting on a Fence

Story Behind The Song

Wrote this during one of my alcoholic husband's long binges; I spent years trying to "fix him" and have finally given up on it; there is a huge hole in my heart, to know that I love him but could not help him, and that he loved me in his own limited way but couldn't help himself. I miss the man he was, and could be.

Sitting on a fence 12 years and waiting, same thing since you came.

Looking for that silver lining to bring this blackness back to what I dreamed, long ago.

There's a light in your eyes I will follow

In your heart hides a man I still love

Restless dreaming leaves you looking for something

You tell lies for yourself, not for me.

In your arms I thought I knew love, but I'm not coming home.

I'm losing hope, I'm losing hope.
