Lorelei - text
He prays his eyes stay open on the long and lonesome road.
He lives his life through day dreams of the girl he had known before.
He laughs about his wasted life, turns off the radio.
There’s no use in being angry so long as he makes it home.
He sings, “If I could turn this around tonight,
I’d drive back to my old town life.
And when I say that I miss you, I know it don’t mean much,
but I’ll see you again my Lorelei.
He pulls the break of his big rig and gives his boss his last regard.
Takes a greyhound back to his hometown , to the steps of her old front yard.
He’s sent to graveyard Blvd. where he finds her at the top of the hill.
He mouths the words, “Will you marry me?”
Her tombstone reads, “I will.”
He sings, “If I could have asked you out that night,
I’d have led a different life and maybe you would be my wife.
But now I sit here missing you and I know it don’t mean much,
But I’ll see you again my Lorelei.
He ain’t scared of death, he greets the end.
