Lyrics YOU CALLED ME BY HER NAME AGAIN,
THINKING I WAS HER AGAIN,
WHEN'S THIS EVER GONNA END, OH,
YOU'RE LIVING SOMEWHERE IN THE PAST,
MISSING LOVE THAT DIDN'T LAST,
AND WHAT WE HAVE IS FADING FAST.

OH...OHAND
THIS AIN'T NINETEEN NINETY NINE,
THIS IS HERE AND NOW,
YOU ARE MINE
BUT YOU'RE CHEATIN' ON ME,
YOU'RE CHEATIN' ON US,
YOU'RE CHEATIN' YOURSELF
RIGHT OUT OF LOVE.
YOU'RE SLIPPING AWAY
FROM ME UNCONSCIOUSLY,
AND I'M LOSING YOU
TO SOME OLD MEMORY.
YOU'RE HAUNTED
BY THAT GHOST IN YOU,
SHE ALWAYS GETS THE MOST OF YOU,
JUST WANT TO BE THAT CLOSE TO YOU.

I CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT'S WRONG,
I CAN'T CHANGE YOUR MIND.
BUT THE ONLY THING I KNOW
IS THAT I'M BEING LEFT BEHIND,
I'M BEING LEFT BEHIND.

Lyrics SHE SAT ALL ALONE
ON A BUS OUT OF BEAUMONT,
THE COURAGE OF JUST EIGHTEEN YEARS.
A PENNY AND QUARTER TAPED TO A LETTER,
AND MOMMA'S GOODBYE IN HER EARS.
SHE WATCHED
AS HER HIGH SCHOOL FADED BEHIND HER
AND THE HOUSE
WITH THE WHITE PICKET FENCE,
THEN SHE READ THE NOTE
THAT HER MOMMA HAD WROTE,
WRAPPED UP
WITH TWENTY SIX CENTS.

WHEN YOU GET LONELY,
CALL ME, ANY TIME AT ALL.
I'LL BE THERE WITH YOU,
ALWAYS,
ANYWHERE AT ALL.
THERE'S NOTHING I GOT
THAT I WOULDN'T GIVE,
AND MONEY IS NEVER ENOUGH.
HERE'S A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS,
A QUARTER FOR THE CALL,
AND ALL OF YOUR MOMMA'S LOVE.

A PENNY AND A QUARTER
BUYS A WHOLE LOT OF NOTHING
TAPED TO AN OLD WRINKLED NOTE,
AND WHEN SHE DIDN'T HAVE MUCH
SHE HAD ALL MOMMA'S LOVE
INSIDE THAT OLD ENVELOPE.

OH, IT'S BEEN YEARS
SINCE MOMMA'S BEEN GONE.
BUT WHEN SHE HOLDS THE COINS
SHE FEELS THE HER LOVE
JUST AS STRONG.
