If Heartaches Had Wings (Julie Reeves)

It's three in the morning on a Saturday night The laundry and dishes just ain't worth the fight Headlights are dancing across the living room wall And that lone distant highway just echoes the hall Now the babies are sleeping on back in their rooms And he's been passed out on the sofa since noon And nobody told her about none of these things And God only knows she'd leave there if heartaches had wings If heartaches had wings she would fly Away like some bird through the night It's a long, long way from a young girl's dream And she'd surely leave there If heartaches had wings She grew up believing That wishes come true A knight on a white horse Like some young girls do So she married her the captain Of the school football team Just like she was supposed to As homecoming queen She turns out the lights and she lays down in bed The sounds of that highway still run through her head She closes her eyes and she whispers those prayers And falls asleep wondering does anyone care And God knows she leave there If heartaches had wings
