Just In Time (To Watch Love Die)

This song is by David Allan Coe and appears on the album Tattoo (1977).

By david allan coe and jimmy townsend

Threes 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 shed usually leave for me not here

Yes, its 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.
