When She Let Him Go

When she let him go
Little did she know
That all they'd built, was not just for show
She said goodbye
Stood on the back step and cried
And how those tears never really dried

She may not need him but she wants him
She may not love him but she could
And come what may, come judgement day
They'll be another in the dust where he once stood

When she let him go
The skies filled up with snow
And the weeds on the porch refused to grow
She sits in her chair
Slowly smoking and brushing her hair
She's leaving for only she knows where

She may not need him but she wants him
She may not love him but she could
And come what may, come judgement day
They'll be another in the dust where he once stood

And all she ever wanted
Was somewhere to lay her head
Surrounded by her memories
She hears the echo of the words she never said
And sees his outline in the matress on the bed
And knows he'll be lying with someone else instead
When she let him go
Outside was twenty below
When he'd be back she didn't know
Soon she'd be gone
Hit the barrooms and then move along
Find somewhere else she could belong

She may not need him but she wants him
She may not love him but she could
And come what may, come judgement day
They'll be another in the dust where he once stood
