A story about a man and a woman.


He was on his own
with only his debts to his name, ut otherwise on his own

he thought he'd head out west
see the mountains for himself
then on to california like the rest

it was 19 years ago that he left home

she was on her own
with only her pain to her name yea but otherwise on her own

she thought shed head out east
see the empire state and the lady liberty

he asked will you write me still?
will you keep a place for me inside your heart?
does this change it all, or have i ruined what id never starting was 19 years ago when he walked away
he wondered if she even remembered his name

he had wed and divorced twice
can't seem to keep a steady job
he lost custody of his child

she had success with her career
went and got her PHD in law, while raising her daughter all alone

and she still thinks of him
does he keep a place for her inside his heart?
what could their lives had been, if shed told him from the start?
it was 19 years ago when she gave birth
but she never told him, he was the father...
