When the Last Straw Falls

APPEARS ON


He stood in the doorway and swore that he would change
She knew in her heart he would always be the same
So she just stared right through him as he went on and on
And sure as he was standing there she knew he was gone

When the last straw falls
It falls forever
It never hears the lonesome calling
Cause it's too late when it's all over
It's all over
When the last straw falls

There will never be another night like all the nights before
No more waiting by the phone and staring at the door
Last night he came in so late that he didn't even know
The last chance he'd taken was the last he'd had to blow

When the last straw falls
It falls forever
It never hears the lonesome calling
Cause it's too late when it's all over
It's all over
When the last straw falls

So she'll pick up the pieces of the heart she gave away
And I'm sure he'll keep calling her. What else can he say
This time she won't listen. This time she'll make a stand
He can go to hell for all she cares. She's taken all she can.

When the last straw falls
It falls forever
It never hears the lonesome calling
Cause it's too late when it's all over
It's all over
When the last straw falls
