TWO CAR GARAGE
(written by Lyle Moraine, as recorded by Burl Ives)

There's gonna be tears on your pillow, and a shadow on your heart
Some morning when you wake up with the dawn
Your gonna look out across the driveway to a two car garage
and one of those two cars will be gone.

You can shed your tears forever, but the day I pull the door
I hope every tear reminds you I don't love you anymore
Your gonna look out across the driveway to a two car garage
and one of those two cars will be gone

You're gonna be all alone and reckless at a table set for two
some morning when the dew is on the lawn
you're gonna look out across the driveway to a two car garage
and one of those two cars will be gone

You may walk the floor forever, but there'snothing you can do
When I pull the door behind me that means you and I are thru
your gonna look out across the driveway to a two car garage
and one of those two cars will be gone.

Lyle Moraine was a film actor and only wrote a few songs. He had some success with a song called "Christmas Island" which wsa recorded by Bing Crosby in 1946. Otherwise he wrote a few for Burl Ives, including "I found My Best Friend in the Dogpound"
