You Missed My Heart - Lyrics

Broke into her house, saw her sitting there
Drinking coke and whiskey in her bra and underwear
Saw him in the kitchen hanging up the phone
I asked him nicely once to pack his things and go
He gave her a reassuring look, said he wouldn't leave
But I asked him one more time, this time pulled out my sheath
Stuck him in the back and I pulled it out slow
And I watch him fall down as the morning sun rose
He looked at me

He said "You missed my heart
You missed my heart
You got me good
I knew you would
But you missed my heart
You missed my heart"
Were his last words before he died

Looking out the window up at the blue sky
Listening to her scream, listening to her cry
A feeling of relief came over my soul
I couldn't take it any longer and I lost control
I chased her up the stairs and I pinned her to the ground
Underneath the whimpering I could hear the siren sound
I rattled off a list of all the things I miss
Like going to the movies with her and the way she kissed me
Driving into downtown Wheeling, showing her off
Backyard barbecues and reunions in the park
I said I missed her skin when she started laughing
While I clenched down on her wrists, she said "That's quite a list
But there's one thing you missed

You missed my heart
You missed my heart
That's quite a list
But what you really missed
You missed my heart
You missed my heart
That's quite a list
But what you really missed"

Running through the parking lot, running through the fields
Policeman on my back, something hit my skull and cracked
They dragged me off to jail, set a million dollar bail
Where I tried to tie a noose but I failed and I broke loose
I went racing through the prison yard, shot down by a tower guard
He got me in the shins and he got me in the arms
They strapped me in the gurney, took me off to the infirmary
Where the priest read my last rights
And just before everything went dark

I said, "You missed my heart
You missed my heart
He got me good
I knew he would
But he missed my heart
He missed my heart
And just before everything went dark"

The most poetic dream
Came flowing like the sea
Laying there my life blood draining out of me
A childhood scene, night sky, moonbeams
Fishing with my friends, sitting in the wild reeds
Watching the Ohio river flow at night
Waiting for the bullhead catfishes to bite

Down river from the Moundsville prison graveyard
