Three's a stack of daily papers on her doorstep
And the grass has grown up more than she'd allow
Yes, it seems to me to be a little more like a vacation

Never knew that I'd miss her until now
From both ends the candle seems to burn much brighter
Guess she saw the flame I tried so hard to hide

Looks like I'm the one that got caught in the middle
Burnt my finger
I got there just in time to watch love die
Yeah, I got there just in time to watch love die

There's a change of address blank inside the mailbox
And the key she'd usually leave for me not here
Yes, it's plain to see that she no longer wants an explanation

Guess I should have known I would not find her here
From both ends the candle seems to burn much brighter
I guess she saw the flame I tried so hard to hide

Looks like I'm the one that got caught in the middle
Burnt my finger
I got there just in time to watch love die
But I got there much to late to say goodbye
