lyrics

Julie wore her broken heart on the inside of her sleeve
In a thousand dollar car with a stolen wedding ring
And the days they blurred like lights in an out of focus frame
With the words repeating in her mind "you'll never, ever change"

Julie got a little place on the other side of town
Changed her number and her name, and she lost her ground
And the nights they flew like wings from a toppled, broken cage
Soaring straight into a fire of ever-rising flames

Julie, the windshield's cold
And you and me have no place to go
I've been driving all night in this car
I'll never get where you are

Inflated, the air comes out, you cannot remember to breathe
Debated, it's haunted now, the ghost has returned to the scene

They found her lying in a field by a vacant mobile home
Her arms outstretched at her side, reaching for her phone
And her children watched her sink six feet into the ground
And no one ever changed, and nothing made a sound
And her children watched her sink six feet into the ground
And no one ever changed, and nothing made a sound
