Broke into her house. Saw her sittin' there
Drinking coke and whiskey in her bra and underwear
Saw him in the kitchen, hangin' up the phone
I asked him nicely please to pack his things and go

He gave her a reassuring look that said he wouldn't leave
But I asked him once again and this time pulled out my shiv
I struck him in the back and I pulled it out slow
And I watched him fall down
And as the morning sun rose
He looked at me and said:

"You missed my heart
You missed my heart
You got me good. I knew you would
But you missed my heart
You missed my heart."
Were his last words before he died

Looking out the window, up at the blue sky
Listening to her scream, listening to her cry
A feeling of relief came over my soul
I couldn't take it any longer and I lost control

I chased her up the stairs
And I pinned her to the ground
And underneath her whimpering
I could hear the sirens sound
I rattled off a list of everything I missed
Like going to the movies with her
And the way she kissed me
Driving into Wheeling and showing her off
Backyard barbecues and reunions in the park
I said I loved her skin and she started laughing
And while I clenched down on her wrist
She said "That's quite a list
But there's one thing you missed

You missed my heart, you missed my heart
That's quite a list, but what you really missed
You missed my heart, you missed my heart
That's quite a list, but what you really missed

Running through the parking lot
Running through the fields
Policemen on my back
Something hit my skull and cracked

They dragged me off to jail, set a million dollar bail
Where I tried to tie a noose, but I failed and I broke loose
Racing through the prison yard
Shot down by a tower guard
He got me in the shins
And he got me in the arms

They strapped me in the gurney
Took me to the infirmary
Where the priest read my last rites
And just before, everything went dark

I said: "He missed my heart, he missed my heart
He got me good, I knew he would
But he missed my heart, he missed my heart"
And just before, everything went dark

The most poetic dream came flowing like the sea
Laying there my lifeblood draining out of me
A childhood scene then, sky moon beams
Fishing with my friends sitting in the wild lands

Watching the Ohio river flow at night
Waiting for the bullhead catfishes to bite
Downriver from the Moundsville prison graveyards
