Verse 1:


Cocaine lines and broken glass


Pale crackled skin, lips made of ash


A rush and an itch he just can’t ignore


Tries to let go, but just wants some more


Then one night he’s crashed on the ground


Drugs in his hand, bruised all around


Starts to see the face of a girl high above


Makes a promise to a girl he once loved


 


Chorus:


Lori


You mean the world to me


Lori


I promise I’ll get clean


 


Verse 2:


Very next day he checks into a place


Where they wash all his clothes, clean up his face


Try as he might he just can’t let go


Of drinking the beer and sniffing the blow


30 days and 30 nights


He tries to get clean and get his mind right


Sweats in his sleep


Coughing blood on his sheets


Just when the pain’s too much


She’s who he sees


 


Chorus 2:


Lori


You mean the world to me


Lori


I promise I’ll get clean


 


Bridge:


Every night he lies on his bed


Thoughts of Lori running through his head


All the pain he made her go through


Soon she was hooked on the smack too


 


Verse 3:


Friday evening, not a cloud in the sky


He goes for a walk, to a small site


God’s acre’s now where she lies still


A small cross of stone, atop a small hill


Sits down beside the girl he still loves


Lays down some roses and paper doves


Thanks her for helping him through the pain


Kisses the headstone, and gets up to say


 


Chorus 4:


Lori


You meant the world to me


Lori


I told you I’d get clean
