Sweet, Sweet, Melissa
I go through city after city, town after town.
Like water chasing whiskey it still burns to drown her out
I am a Stranger to no one but love is never found
I wish Melissa was around
I hide my pain and I fake a smile
Inside im Knowing all the while
That I'll run back a million miles
Sitting in this old boxcar I stick to myself.
I dont have to say it but others sense I need some help
No one lends an ear so I don't let out a yelp
My clothes are all tattered and I have no blanket to sleep
You in my dreams are the memories I keep
The gypsy I long for is waiting on me
Another lonely morning where im just basking in the sun
Lord, I have to keep my face on but I still know Im on the run
What happened to the days when I had all the fun
Another lonely ride I can't seem to ever leave
Never made it back but now it's getting hard to breath
Will I die and be left inbetween or will my spirit be released
I miss you, Sweet.
I love you, Sweet.
Sweet, sweet, Melissa.
