I Did It All For You Lyrics

Artist: Cowboy Junkies
Album: Open

(I did it all for you)

She took his dentures from his mouth
And placed them in her own.
Took a shovel from the shed
And then dragged him from their home.
(I did it all for you.)
Left a note tacked to the door,
"Paid in full" is what it said.
High above I look below
And watch her slowly go.
River, like magnesium,
Burns.

(I did it all for you)

He stuck his fingers in their backs
To count the holes he bore.
Doused them all in kerosene
And moved to bolt the door.
(I did it all for you)
Called his Dad and said goodbye
As his lit match hit the floor.
High above I look below
And watch them slowly go.
River, like magnesium,
Burns.

(I did it all for you)

Set his guilt before his rage
Set it like a wall
To protect what he once knew as love,
But which he never knew at all.
River, like magnesium,
Burns.
(I did it all for you)
(I did it all for you)
