lyrics

You won't be holding the door for her, you won't be touching her leg
You won't be wondering if she hears a single thing you say
You won't be taking the high road and she won't be finding the low,
And you won't be sleeping beside her anymore

Sooner or later your hatred of being cruel will be cruel
Sooner or later the one you've been shielding will beg you to shoot
God Almighty knows you don't want to be the one
So call it a mercy killing, a mercy killing, and get it done

You won't be kissing her goodbye, you won't be folding her clothes
She won't be talking to you like you are someone who she barely knows
You won't be locked behind your book and she won't be locked on the phone
And you won't be sleeping beside her anymore

Sooner or later your hatred of being cruel will be cruel . . .

You won't be ten years younger, she won't be your bride
And you won't be wondering where your bride went night after night after night
You won't be with her in sickness and you won't be with her poor
And you won't be sleeping beside her anymore

Sooner or later your hatred of being cruel will be cruel . . .
