David Allan Coe — Just In Time (To Watch Love Die) lyrics

By David Allan Coe And Jimmy Townsend

Threes A stack of daily papers on her doorstep

And the grass has grown up more than she'd allow

Yes, it seems to me to be A little more like A vacation

Never knew that I'd miss her until now

From both ends the candle seems to burn much brighter

Guess she saw the flame I tried so hard to hide

Looks like I'm the one that got caught in the middle

Burnt my finger

I got there just in time to watch love die

Yea, I got there just in time to watch love die

There's A change of address blank inside the mailbox

And the key she'd usually leave for me not here

Yes, it's plain to see that she no longer wants an explanation

Guess I should have known I would not find her here

From both ends the candle seems to burn much brighter

I guess she saw the flame I tried so hard to hide

Looks like I'm the one that got caught in the middle

Burnt my finger

I got there just in time to watch love die

But I got there much to late to say goodbye.
