Billboards, Signs and Omens

Billboards, Signs and Omens

I can still see her face
Plastered all over the place
A pretty girl on a sign
A girl who used to be mine
She used to smile at me
Now she smiles at everyone
As if they shared the secret
That my world has come undone

Chorus:
I see billboards, signs and omens
And I know what they mean
Any fool can see
That I have made mistakes
And now the biggest one of all
Is staring down at me

I wonder when she first knew
Her love had started to cool
It was such a cold surprise
When I saw it in her eyes
I tried to make amends
But my pleas all went unheard
Now I’m tortured by pictures
Each one worth a thousand words

Chorus:
I see billboards, signs and omens
And I know what they mean
Any fool can see
That I have made mistakes
And now the biggest one of all
Is staring down at me

I wonder why she left
But she hasn’t told me yet
I remember one time she said
Her words fill up my head
I didn’t know what they meant
Or if they mean anything
I guess it’s up to me
Now that she is gone
To try and figure out
Just exactly what went wrong

Chorus:
I see billboards, signs and omens
And I know what they mean
Any fool can see
That I have made mistakes
And now the biggest one of all
Is staring down at me
