Silent Partner

print

Just heart beat ago my darling left me
With a good by kiss she sadly broke the news
In her empty chair that’s just across the table
Sits my brand new silent partner called the blues

Her cigarette’s still burning in the ash tray
Reminds me of the pain I put her through
As I watch the front door slowly close behind her
Through the back door walked my partner called the blues

As I look back at the time we spent together
I can see how wrong I’ve been for all these years
For she offered me a lifetime of devotion
In return she’ll walk a highway paved with tears

I know it’s too late to ask forgiveness
With a love like hers it’s just too much to lose
Now I know that I must start my life all over
With my brand new silent partner called the blues
