Another long, long day indoors
The glass upon his nose
Looking out the window a million times so he's ready when she shows
He loves her all he can
But now she has met a man

But something's different when she gets in
But what the Hell is it?
A quick hello, a kiss, and she's off again
As he crumbles bit by bit
He does not understand
Why he feels so second-hand

Oh, he's alive whenever she's around
Sometimes you have to hold him down
And there's so much he'd say if words could just be found

She's been staying out all of the night
Yeah that's the tail of late
So he huddles up right next to her favorite coat and embraces his new fate
He loves her all he can
But he misses his dear friend

Oh, he's alive whenever she's around
But now she's off out on the town
And he's at home far from the city light and sound

Then she's home a couple days straight
A sad look in her eye
And suddenly from out of the ashes he is there right by her side
Yeah he loves her all he can
He loves her without end

Oh, he's alive now she is back around
He's risen up from being down
And there's so much he'd say if words could just be found
