Death and taxes

I knew that she was madder than she’d ever been before.

I could tell by the way that she slammed the door.

Those pictures on the wall never shook like that before.

But I was certain that she’d come back, I was even sure.

I didn’t think she’d ever take it this far.

There had to be some love for me deep down in her heart.

But I was getting worried when I heard that motor start.

And I knew that she was gone with the squeal of tires.

I was certain that with time she’d come back to me.

There was no doubt in my mind, only certainty.

But now I’m left here all alone with nothing but my hurtin’!

I guess death and taxes are the only things certain.

It’s never been this lonely lyin’ in our bed.

With lots of time to think, the thoughts were rollin’ through

my head.

So I called her on the phone, you wouldn’t believe the things

she said.

I was certain that she told me I could go and drop dead.

I was certain that with time she’d come back to me.

There was no doubt in my mind, only certainty.

But now I’m left here all alone with nothing but my hurtin’.

I guess death and taxes are the only things certain…..
