"Alone With Me"

[VIRGINIA]
When I was seventeen and you were twenty-three
You couldn't wait to be alone with me
We shared a private little world all our own
Then the kids came, no privacy
The job took you away from me
Still, we'd never miss
Our goodnight kiss on the phone

Remember how we'd whisper, dear
And dream about the day
When it would be the two of us
And you'd be home to stay?

Now you just want to win this truck
So you can drive away
To hunt with the boys
And make you feel free
You'd do anything
To keep from being alone with me

[VIRGINIA and (J.D.)]
You're tired of the growing bills (I'm just tired)
The side effects from the little pills (All the time)
And the hospitals where

[BOTH]
They just won't let you/me be

[VIRGINIA]
I thought that you'd be happy now
Home with the one you love
But it turns out I'm one more thing
You've gotten tired of

I try to talk

[J.D.]
I don't wanna talk

[VIRGINIA]
You turn up the TV

[J.D.]
Just let me be

[VIRGINIA]
You used to like being-

[J.D.]
I can't stand being-

[BOTH]
Alone with me

[VIRGINIA]
After thirty years
You guess some love will wear away
The same face on your pillow
Staring at you every day

[BOTH]
Afraid that you'll discover
You have nothing left to say

[VIRGINIA]
I wish I knew what I could do
To make myself enough for you
The way that you're enough for me

[J.D., spoken]
Aw, Ginny...

[VIRGINIA]
But I can't watch you kill yourself
It's killing me
You'd do anything
To keep from being alone with me
