here comes ted

from by Keri Latimer

lyrics

you’ll take trashed to staying sober
punching clocks, and working days away

you’ll take ditches over made up beds, and floors that sparkle
tiny clothes to fold and tears to smooth away

suitcase in hand
picket fence behind you
farther and farther away

here comes ted running like a train to try and catch me
don’t you go

and i can’t tell if he means stay, i love you
i can’t bear to face a day without you

or does he think the more freedom
rushing through my veins the less for him

don’t you go

a sister not too far, past the coulees by the rail yard
kitchen clatters, she doesn't blink an eye
the children should be fine

here’s comes ted running like a train to try and catch me.
