Liner Notes

This is an evolution of the song "Daddy Was a Soldier" that I wrote with Eric Davis. The reason for the dual post was that Eric had another lyrical idea in his head, this time the lyrical story is about confronting a cheating partner.

Edit 02MAR2010 - Eric and I just finished adding an updated vocal track!

Lyrics

It's time that we end this, no troubles, no pain
In my heart, you can no longer remain
With the ghost of your past, I can never compete
You know the one who played you betrayed you
Was cruel and would retreat

The pedestal that you placed him on I could never reach
You changed my world, now the sun sets in the east
Keep living in your past because it's not mine
You've done me so wrong for the very last time

The locks have changed and the curtains are closed
Are future together is no more
You chose your path, to live in your past
When the world in the present seems so vast
You're trapped in time, you remain so blind
Not looking forward; always behind
Each second is precious and love is true
While you figure that out, I won't wait for you

You say that you love me, but I need no lies
You're thinking of him right now, I can see it in your eyes
The more than you deny, the more I do believe
You play these heart games, I know where you wanna be

Away with him, lost in the dream
It will always be a dream no matter how real it seems
He's been playing you like you're played me
There's one big difference - I know when to break free

The locks have changed and the curtains are closed
Are future together is no more
You chose your path, to live in your past
When the world in the present seems so vast
You're trapped in time, you remain so blind
Not looking forward; always behind
Each second is precious and love is true
While you figure that out, I won't wait for you

(You) say that you're sorry, that you wanna try to make this last
But I've gotta let it go, to be the next ghost in your past
All memories of you, I'll put away in an old shoe box
It's because of you my heart is now under guard and...

Locks have changed and the curtains are closed
Are future together is no more
You chose your path, to live in your past
When the world in the present seems so vast
You're trapped in time, you remain so blind
Not looking forward; always behind
Each second is precious and love is true
While you figure that out, I won't wait for you

Don't bother coming home, I said the locks are changed
