Lyrics

Shelley's at the kitchen table Cup of coffee, the morning paper When he walks in, she's so surprised To see the tears in his eyes He says, I love you, I'm so sorry But bigger things are waiting for me And I can't take this anymore

Pay the bills, watch TV Day in day out, the same routine Mow the grass, fix the leak Just to fix it again We go to church, go to work So picture perfect that it hurts I feel like I'm trapped inside This ordinary life Shelley's at the kitchen table Crayons, construction paper Hey, mom, look what I drew It's a picture of me and you Later, when he says his prayers She runs her fingers through his hair So thankful for every day They pay their bills, watch TV Day in, day out, it's all they need Mow the grass, fix the leak Just to fix it again They go to church, go to school Every day, it's something new Precious are the days as they go by In their ordinary lives Phone rings He's calling from the airport It's midnight He's all alone again He says I can't believe How much I've missed And what I wouldn't give To pay the bills, watch TV Day in, day out, the same routine Mow the grass, fix the leak Just to fix it again Go to church, go to work I can't tell you how this hurts I miss my son, I miss my wife And my ordinary life
