He Told Her The City Was Killing Him

This song is by The Delines and appears on the album Colfax (2014).

He told her the city was killing him
Everyone was stacked in a row
She was thirty five years old
He was the first man she ever fell in with
The first man she ever lived with
Her friends told her it was a mistake
But she quit her job and used the money she'd saved

They packed up her car and drove
To the dessert and the new used out home
She got a job in a bank
He got drunk one night and threw a chair at her while she was sleeping

Now she's staring out the window getting old
Such a price to pay for not wanting to live alone

She never knew where he'd go
But he was hardly ever home
And he said the dessert was killing him
So they packed her car and moved
They pick up and start again
They'd fall apart and start again
Lose a job and start again
Get bruised up and start again

Now she's staring out the window getting old
Such a price to pay
Now she's staring out the window getting old
Such a price to pay for not wanting to be alone
