Jill was always one, one who lived alone
she went and did it all on her own
Until those lonely nights, oh they got so cold
She never felt so old

She left a few things behind
and pushed some people out of her mind
When she gets a little farther down the line
She’ll be just fine.

When she went through it all again
Played it over and over in her head
Is there not a way to make this right
For everything to work out this time


Well her husband leaving her was tough
And the death of her son wasn’t enough
Taking with her all over her love
She hopes he’s happy somewhere up above


And she travels down that highway fast
Precious moments when she can laugh
Home is wherever she is at
Will she really last?



from Already Gone, track released July 7, 2016
