    "Life In Three Parts" Lyrics

    Highwater Rising

    She could climb from her window over to my house
    We would hide up in my room
    Where she'd feel safe for awhile
    And keep the windows open for the blue skies she'd say
    Even when it rained
    She kept her ears wide
    In case her parents ever called her name
    And she owned and told me the truth when
    We were on the phone
    She'd like to change her name
    She'd like to think of stories about places she'd never been
    She knows, she made me believe

    I loved everything about her and she was in love with me
    But she had to go

    Mother was too good for her
    Daddy wasn't ever good enough
    Through the years of fighting
    He never noticed how much she grew up
    When I last saw her at the corner of two streets
    She looked tired
    Like she might do something right
    She got a job, saves money on a car she never loved
    She never looked back
    And I always thought that I could be the one
    To make her stay
    She liked to stay out late, drinking and acting crazy
    She was just waiting
    I tried to hold her hand
    I understood but I could never understand

    Why she had to go

    I heard her mother's doing her good
    I heard her father died last spring
    They sold her house last week
    And no she still hasn't heard a thing
    But I don't think that I'll be the one to tell her
    She'd like to change her name
    She'd like to think of stories of places she'd never been
    She liked to stay out late, telling me stories
    About people and places she'd never been
    I tried to hold her hand
    And I understood what I could never understand
