Lyrics

Wet Cement

On a day, on a day not so long ago,
I was walking down a country road
The asphalt crumbled beneath my souls,
Where Mother Nature had broken through
I saw you standing there beneath the willow tree,
In your threadbare dime store blues
And I know and I know and I know I should have turned away,
But I did not and that was my choice

Like wet cement you left your mark on me
Like wet cement you left your mark on me
The scars are evident, yes they’re plain to see
Like a road map to a broken heart

I should have guessed you would spell trouble for me
When your eyes sparkled in the sun-kissed summer shade
We were talking, my heart bursting, you brushed against my hand
Like a ten ton school girl crush
Some things aren’t meant to last and some things are too good to be true
And I did not see the fork in the road
If I had known, I had known all the pain you would bring to me
I still could not have told you no

Like wet cement you left your mark on me
Like wet cement you left your mark on me
The scars are evident, yes they’re plain to see
Like a road map to a broken heart

There was a darkness inside no light could penetrate
And when I realized by then it was too late
To save you from yourself

They say that time can be a temperamental thing
And all we are is just dust on the breeze
So I kept me eye on you and the storm clouds brewing
Never expecting you’d blow yourself away

Like wet cement you left your mark on me
Like wet cement you left your mark on me
The scars are evident, yes they’re plain to see
Like a road map to a broken heart
