Lyrics

That girl, she's gone crazy
That girl, she ain't right
She's one step from the asylum
That one step could come tonight
Her last boyfriend went missing
So be careful what you say
She's one step from the asylum
And you're one step from the grave

She waited for those three words
She still seemed alright
She waited for the diamond
Before she showed the signs
She waited for the vows
Before she lost her mind
Now you're standing in your kitchen
Dodgin' a butcher knife

You're askin', "What the hell happened
to that sweet girl I used to know?"

Well, that girl, she's gone crazy
And that girl, she ain't right
She's one step from the asylum
And that one step could come tonight
Her last boyfriend went missing
So be careful what you say
She's one step from the asylum
And you're one step from the grave

She called up your momma
And said, "Leave my man alone"
"There's no room for the two of us"
"So don't you come here anymore"
She told all your friends
That you moved down to Peru
And said if you try to call them
It'll be the last thing you ever do

You're askin', "What the hell happened
to that sweet girl I used to know?"

Well, that girl, she's gone crazy
And that girl, she ain't right
She's one step from the asylum
And that one step could come tonight
Her last boyfriend went missing
So be careful what you say
She's one step from the asylum
And you're one step from the grave
