Hands on a Hardbody - Alone With Me Lyrics

(Ginny)
When I was 17 and you were 23, you couldn’t wait to be alone with me.
We shared a private little world all our own.

Then the kids came, no privacy.
Your job took you away from me.
Still we’d never miss our goodnight kiss on the phone.
Remember how we’d whisper dear and dream about the day,
When it would be the two of us and you’d be home to stay?

Now you just want to win this truck so you can drive away.
To hunt with the boys who make you feel free.
You’d do anything to keep from being alone with me.

You’re tired of the growing bills.

(J.D.)
I’m just tired.

(Ginny)
The side effects from the little pills.

(J.D.)
All the time.

(Ginny)
All the hospitals where...

(Both)
They just won’t...

(Ginny)                               (J.D.)
Let you be.                     Let me be.

(Ginny)
I thought that you’d be happy now, home with the one you love.
But it turns out I’m one more thing you’ve gotten tired of.
I tried to talk.

(J.D.)
I don’t want to talk.

(Ginny)
You turn up the tv.

(J.D.)
Just let me be.

(Ginny)
You used to like being...

(Ginny)                           (J.D.)
Alone with me. |       I can’t stand being alone with me.

(Ginny)
After 30 years you’d guess some love will wear away.
The same face on your pillow staring at you every day.

(Both)
Afraid that you’ll discover you have nothing left to say.

(Ginny)
I wish I knew what I could do to make myself enough for you.
The way that you’re enough for me.

(J.D.)
Aw, Ginny.

(Ginny)
But I can’t watch you kill yourself.
It’s killing me.
You’d do anything to keep from being alone with me.
