Wind is howling
I'm all alone
Sitting by the fire
But I can't get warmer
Been 9 cold nights
She ain't coming home

She took my soul to the darker side
But halfway there
I done got wise
9 cold nights
Time to say goodbye
I guess my best
Just wasn't good enough
I may not look it
But I'm smarter than I was

Dogs are barking
In the midnight rain
Thunder and lightning
To know this pain
9 cold nights
But tonight it's gonna change
I guess my best
Just wasn't good enough
I may not look it
But I'm smarter than I was

Burn them memories
Like gasoline
It's time I learned
To wipe it clean
Tonight your mine
No longer haunting me
I guess my best
Just wasn't good enough
I may not look it
But I'm smarter than I was

I may not look it
But I'm much smarter than I was
