Is lost love really Greyhound's fault?

A chapter in the book Reflections Of Color

Me And The Greyhound

by Brett Matthew West

Me And The Greyhound

I'm sitting in the station looking everywhere
Something keeps saying you just don't care
There's two ways to do this. You tell me which one
Bring back my baby or take it on the run

We were having problems. Of that there ain't no doubt
She was tired of my lying and always stepping out
She saw them wheels rolling, calling out her name
Gone away forever and I'm the one to blame

Nothing that I ever did put a smile upon her face
Ain't too hard to notice another took my place
Call me a fool but I can't let her go
Greyhound don't tell me I even told you so

Last time I saw her she had a suitcase in her hand
Destination nowhere but broken promise land
I'll give you a little while to make up your mind
If she's not back by morning gonna leave this love behind

Me and the Greyhound are gonna have a fight
Two in the morning and you're not here tonight
Did you really think I was gonna stand for that this long
Greyhound, I need her. Now my baby's gone


Thanks Liilia for the use of your picture. It goes so nicely with my lyrics.
