(Revised Lyrics)

THINKIN’ ‘BOUT THE LIFE I HAD THE LIFE I LEFT BEHIND
I THOUGHT I DID MYSELF SOME GOOD CAUSE NOW I’VE EASED MY MIND
TRIED TO FIND ANOTHER BAG A WHOLE NEW LIFESTYLE
I THOUGHT THAT I HAD RAISED THE FLAG ON THE EARTH I STAND ON NOW BUT…

YOU CAME ALONG & TOOK MY SOUL & MESSED MY WORLD AROUND
I DIDN’T EVEN HAVE CONTROL I FELL STRAIGHT TO THE GROUND
I WAS VULNERABLE FOR YOUR LOVE, WE FIT JUST LIKE A GLOVE
I DIDN’T THINK IT’D HAPPEN TO ME BUT GIRL I HAD IT VULNERABILITY

WITH YOU I THOUGHT I HAD A LOVE, A LOVE THAT WOULD LAST
YOU MADE ME FEEL SO ALIVE, FORGOT ABOUT ME PAST
TRUSTED YOU IN EVERY WAY UP UNTIL THE DAY, I FOUND OUT YOU WERE JUST A LIE BUT STILL I COULDN’T GET AWAY

CHORUS

MUSIC BREAK

WELL, I THOUGHT I’D START MY LIFE ANEW WITH YOU RIGHT FROM THE START
BUT YOU STILL LOVED QUITE A FEW, YOU TORE MY HEART APART
I TRAVELED DOWN THAT SAME OLD ROAD, THE ROAD I’D ALWAYS BEEN
GIRL THE WAY YOU DID ME SURE WAS COLD, GIRL YOU DID ME IN

CHORUS, AD-LIB & FADE
