The Provider’s Gone

You want her, you need her
You say you’ll believe her
When all the magic is gone.
You find her, you keep her
You won’t ever leave her
Now, all your promises done.
Too little space in this house to be hiding,
No more tears, no more doubts, no more lying
Little space in this house to be fighting,
When the bottle is out, the provider’s gone.
Well, things they change now
And you’ve rearranged now
You’re gold in the light of the sun.
You love her, you weep her
You wish you could see her
But your words and your deeds linger on.
She’s moving down by the lake with your daughter
She’s still pretty might find a new partner
When she meets him she says without laughter
When the bottle is out, the provider’s gone.
