I loved her because she was there
And I knew all along that it wasn't fair but I didn't care
Then I got the hell out of there
But that was a close one
I keep my freedom intact
Got rid of the hassle and rid of the flack
Yeah I cut me some slack
And I never thought I'd want it back but that was a close one
That was a close one and if I hadn't run
She might have got away with me heart so I played it smart
That was a close one but I kept my cool never let down my guard
That was a close one
The winter of '79 so cold and lonely
I found a good woman she took me inside
And I swear to god I really tried
