Lyrics

First vision of her a revelation
Heavens opened and shone down
He’s still waiting for another divine inspiration
To make him sure of what he found

No one ever loved her better
She longs for something different just the same
Sometimes, she wonders whether
She shouldn’t have taken his name

Blanket of night hides the ache in their souls
Two bodies huddle with love that’s grown cold
That old twisted cedar taps
A familiar refrain on their window

She’s thinking of painting the gray in her hair
She looks in the closet at nothing to wear
Will he notice when she starts
Coming home later

This ain’t no love tale like Johnny and June
This ain’t ever after, the fire died too soon
This ain’t no lullaby, no one will sleep well tonight

He’s remembering that morning
They fell (to their) knees and asked
Will you let me love you forever?

This ain’t no love tale like Johnny and June
This ain’t ever after, the fire died too soon
This ain’t no lullaby, no one will sleep well tonight

No one ever loved her better
She longs for something different just the same
Sometimes, she wonders whether
She shouldn’t have taken his name
