One of my story songs that I thought to slow down for this album. I was released to "freely go her way", though in the end it was a fruitless pursuit.

Lyrics

The story of lost love is full of tears and regrets
And the mem'ry's a private demon never slain
Sometimes starting over will wash away the pain
But this man you sought to resurrect was doomed before you came.

The love I lost in Tyler turned around to haunt you too
When she showed up at your door and begged to see me
So you held your tears and said that I could freely go her way
Knowing deep inside you'd lost your whole life story

There you go thinking God has turned his eyes away
Cause the old lines never change much, just the names
You wonder if you'll ever find a good man for your own
So you lock your heart inside you assuming all the blame

The love I lost in Tyler turned around to haunt you too
When she showed up at your door and begged to see me
So you held your tears and said that I could freely go her way
Knowing deep inside you'd lost your whole life story

The love I lost in Tyler turned around to haunt you too
When she showed up at your door and begged to see me
So you held your tears and said that I could freely go her way
Knowing deep inside you'd lost your whole life story

Now please don't you ever let my troubled mind deceive you
It was only a year ago I walked in your shoes
I know you'll find a good man who'll turn your sky to blue
Though now you feel upended by a girl you never knew.

The love I lost in Tyler turned around to haunt you too
When she showed up at your door and begged to see me
So you held your tears and said that I could freely go her way
Knowing deep inside you'd lost your whole life story
Knowing deep inside you'd lost your whole life story
