I woke up this morning
And prayed to God, oh, let it be a dream
Her side of the bed was cold
And layin' there beside me was her ring

With a note, that she had left for me
Layin' where she used to lay her head
And I felt the world fall in on me
For this is what she said

Tied to a stone, ain't no way to live
I can't go on livin' like this
I'd rather be lonely and face life alone
Than to go on this way, day after day
Tied to a stone

I always thought I gave her
Everything that any girl could want
The diamonds on her fingers
A new car and a big two-story home

Home became a prison
And lookin' back, now, I can see it all
Oh, I'd give the world if I could change the things
That made her climb that wall

Tied to a stone, ain't no way to live
I can't go on livin' like this
I'd rather be lonely and face life alone
Than to go on this way, day after day
Tied to a stone
