One Headlight
The Wallflowers Lyrics


So long ago, I don't remember when
That's when they say I lost my only friend
Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
As I listened through the cemetery trees

I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
The long broken arm of human law
Now it always seemed such a waste, she always had a pretty face
So I wondered how she hung around this place

Hey, come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There's got to be something better than
In the middle
But me and Cinderella
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight

She said it's cold
It feels like Independence Day
And I can't break away from this parade
But there's got to be an opening
Somewhere here in front of me
Through this maze of ugliness and greed
And I seen the sun up ahead at the county line bridge
Sayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead
We'll run until she's out of breath
She ran until there's nothin' left
She hit the end, it's just her window ledge

Hey, come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There's got to be something better than
In the middle
But me and Cinderella
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight

Well this place is old
It feels just like a beat up truck
I turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn
Well it smells of cheap wine, cigarettes
This place is always such a mess
Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn
I'm so alone and I feel just like somebody else
Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same
But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin' dreams
I think of death, it must be killin' me

Hey, hey hey come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There's got to be something better than
In the middle
But me and Cinderella
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight

Never had kids
But I had a great Dad
And I can still feel it all
Sometimes it's just enough not to hurt
But Fighting my way threw dying dreams
Has me feeling some kinda way today
But the sun's going down as we speak
So now it's night
Still feeling alright
With one headlight

My dad has Alzheimer's and Dementia. Yesterday he was wearing a Wallflowers T-shirt and trying to tune his guitar. I got it tuned up for him and started giving him the tune. 5 mins later he was playing and singing it like he was a professional. Music is medicine.

That is beautiful to hear. Good music is a blessing to our soul. I'm 75 and listen to almost all old r/r and love music from 50's to 90's and then some...Yes, good for the body and soul.

On your worse day this song would pick you up and help ya forget your problems. Oh it still does

Some guy with a guitar.

I love this song. It's strange how a song written years ago can have such an impact on you today. I've listened to this over a thousand times but truly understood it when later life events took me there.
