her dream was Hollywood
his the holy hills of Nashville
she left him in Memphis
he left her wanting more
for good

she hit the small time
like he knew she would
he landed on Music Row
singing, “Oh I wish she could”
have more
have him

she reads his Variety headlines
plants seeds of anxiety deadlines
sends a text “come see me”
ends with his next words
do you want or do you need me
