Eight Crazy Hours (In the Story of Love)

Album: Keep On Loving You (2009)
  • It was somethin' as simple
    As makin' the bed
    That kicked off the voice
    Inside her head
    She was smoothin' the sheet
    With the palm of her hand
    When the thought struck home
    "I don't know who I am"

    And she sat cross-legged
    On the bedroom floor
    And thought
    There's 3 people in this house
    That don't need me anymore
    And she cried like a baby
    In a pile of dirty clothes

    Oh, should I be more care free
    Should I be more sexy
    Should I be more friend, than mom
    And the dryer was buzzin'
    And the TV was blarin'
    And she wanted to call her momma

    It was somethin' as simple
    As checkin' in to that cheap motel
    Out on Highway ten
    Was it the sting of leavin'
    Or usin' her maiden name
    That took all of the fun
    Out of runnin' away
    And she cried like a baby
    In the tub of room five

    Oh, should I be more care free
    Should I be more sexy
    Should I be more friend, than mom
    And her head was buzzin'
    And the TV was blarin'
    And she wanted to call her husband

    It was somethin' as simple
    As pickin' up the kids
    That her back to Earth again
    She'd been to the dark side of the moon
    And she had to keep it to herself
    So she grabbed a bucket of Chicken
    For supper

    Oh, but she looked more care free
    And she looked more sexy
    And she looked more friend than mom
    And the table talk was buzzin'
    And the TV, it was blarin'
    And they all sat and laughed at each other

    It was somethin' as simple
    As not givin' up
    And eight crazy hours
