penny on the floor lyrics – clarks

there’s a penny on the floor and you’re gone
the television’s on
have you found another man to take my place

there’s a penny on the floor and i’m wise
i try to see in your eyes
but all i see is a reflection of my face

there’s a penny on the floor and you’re gone
i’m tryin’ to right what’s wrong
a stronger man might do it with more grace

there’s a penny on the floor and i’m wise
i look up to the skies
i cry and pray and i stare out into sp*ce

there’s a penny on the floor and you’re standin’ at the door
turn around and say good bye
a woman like you comes around just once a life

there’s a penny on the floor and i’m strong
i try to carry on,
realize that no one can take your place

there’s a penny on the floor and i’m fine
i know its gonna take some time
before i look at you without lookin’ at my own face

a penny on the floor
i’m tired of the war
a penny on the track
are you comin’ back?

there’s a penny on the floor and it stays
as a tribute to the days
that were spent with you
no one can take them away

there’s a penny on the floor and it stays
as a tribute to the ways
you filled my soul with courage, hope, and grace

there’s a penny on the floor and you’re standin’ at the door
turn around and say good bye
a woman like you comes around just once a life

there’s a penny on the floor and you’re standin’ at the door
turn around and say good bye
a woman like you comes around
and won’t bring me down
