He calls from a hotel in downtown Dallas
Says he won't be home for three more days
She gets so lonely in her Houston hill top palace
Talking to her self as their two-year-old plays
She rocks the baby to sleep then gets in bed
Reads romance novels of a love she once had
She closes her eyes and dreams about the man
Who gave her more than money and a call now and then.
As the shine on her diamond starts to fade
She recalls the promises they made
But a bond can only bend so far before it breaks
She's stuck between a rock and a heartache.
She tries to keep busy with her everyday routines
Soap operas in the afternoons, after she cleans
As she wipes off a picture frame from their wedding day
She wonders if he asked her again what would she say.
She feels like she's stranded somewhere in no man's land
Cause her life is like a prisoner's chained to a wedding band.
