Haunting song about family break-up.

Ashley's   game


Ashley, she's lonely
She plays Daddy come home, she's lonely
She calls out your name, says it's a game
It all ends the same, she's lonely

Jason, you won't know him
He's changed, he's so quiet, you won't know him
His friends used to call,  ask him out to play ball
Now they don't call at all, you won't know him

Ashley's six, Jason's ten and  I think back to when
They would laugh as they’d climb on your knee
Then your friend came along and my whole world went wrong
She took your love and you from me, why should that be?

OK now, I'm OK now
I take one day at a time, I'm OK now
First I used pray you would come home some day
Now I just play Ashley's game

And my thoughts sometimes stray to much happier days
When I thought that you loved only me
But then she came along and my whole world went wrong
She took your love and you from me, why should that be?

OK now, I'm OK now
I take one day at a time, I'm OK now
At first I used pray you would come home some day
Now I just play Ashley's game
At first I used pray you would come home some day
Now I just play Ashley's game
Ashley, she's lonely
