It was that open window
and something aching in my head.
Something ain’t right when you can’t get out of bed.
It was that old grey carpet
and the phone call at 2 am.
I can’t believe I fell for that again.

Goodbye baby
It’s too soon for you to tell
but I’ve learned my lesson well.
Wait and see.
Next time you think of me
I’ll be half-way down the road to Calgary.

It was the rain on the driveway
and you pulling out again.
It was the smell that was left on your skin.
It was the radio playing
a broken-hearted little tune.
I packed my bags in the dreary afternoon.

Now I’m pulling onto the highway
and the trees are blurring by
and I hate to say it
but there’s not one cloud left in the sky.
