Aspen, Colorado on a Saturday night
Jesse wishes she was at home
Upset because her baby just ain't treating her right
So afraid of being alone
Said she heard some stories he's been running around
Said somehow she knows it's all true
She says a breaking heart can make a terrible sound
She said she don't know what to do

Think about a bad time, can't get much worse
Think about a hard time, take it to the wall
This won't be the last time, sure ain't the first
The bigger they are, the harder they fall

You might say she's caught between a rock and a hard place
