You Don't Love Me Like You Used To

You blew in and won me over, with your sly grin and quirky ways.  

You loved me sweet, you loved me crazy, in those getting to know you days. 

As I got to know you better, I found the depth behind your charms,  

Helpful, loyal, smart, and stubborn, you were in my heart as well as my arms. 
  

            You don't love me like you used to, 

            and honey I like that just fine. 

            You don't love me like you used to, 

            it's getting stronger all the time. 
  

Just starting out when we got married, there was so much we didn't know. 

It took some time to work the kinks out, ‘tween holding on and letting go. 

We had to learn to live together, respect and love, sick or well. 

We bought a house and put some roots down, our love got sweeter the deeper we fell.  

     Chorus  

As we get older, you're a part of me, we know the things we depend on. 

You do the yard, I do the taxes, we ask forgiveness when we're wrong. 

Just starting out seems so long ago, yet when I look into your eyes, 

I see the one I fell in love with, you can still catch me by surprise.  

     Chorus/Tag

Left Behind

It’s my first night in this house alone. 

Ruins fall farther apart, in what was our home. 

Many things are missing, but what breaks my heart, 

Is all that’s left behind by your clean start. 
 

        You’ve gone away and just left me here. 

        You’ve started fresh, without me dear. 

        You’ve left behind what you didn’t need. 

        Too late, I realized, that included me. 


Your extra keys lie there by the phone. 

A bare spot on the floor was the dog bowl’s home. 

Empty closets where your clothes used to hang, 

Without you here nothing feels the same. 
 

       You’ve gone away and just left me here. 

        You’ve started fresh, without me dear. 

        You’ve left behind what you didn’t need. 

        Too late, I realized, that included me. 

        (Tag) You’ve left behind what you didn’t need. 

        Too late, I realized, that included me.

You'll End Up On Your Knees Either Way

God’s not some cosmic waitress,   

waiting 'round to take your order,   

you can stamp your foot and cry all the long day.   

You can turn your back or get turned around,   

you can lift your voice or make not a sound.   

You’ll end up on your knees either way.   

Chorus:   

       You’ll end up on your knees either way.   

        Yeah you’ll end up on your knees either way.   

        You can bow or get knocked down,   

        either way you’re on the ground,   

        You’ll end up on your knees either way.   
  

You can get there on your own,   

or you can fall there from your throne,   

you can bend so you don’t break, or snap in two.   

You can mash all the right buttons,   

pain still knocks you back right sudden.   

You’ll end up on your knees either way.   

Chorus:   

       You’ll end up on your knees either way.   

        Yeah you’ll end up on your knees either way.   

        You can bow or get knocked down,   

        either way you’re on the ground,   

        You’ll end up on your knees either way.

The Part of Me

 The part of me that is covered in feathers, 


flies to you every chance it gets. 

The moment I leave that cage door unmanned, 

it wings its way to your windowsill and pecks. 


     Hope is a glorious thing 

     and hope dies last, they say. 

     But my hope has died, and I’m still alive, 

     and you are forever away. 


The part of me that is covered in skin, 

still feels your touch though it’s been years. 

As soon as I remove this armor I wear, 

it burns and drives me to tears. 


     Hope is a glorious thing 

     and hope dies last, they say. 

     But my hope has died, and I’m still alive, 

     and you are forever away. 
 

The part of me that courses with blood 

hammers harder at your ghost. 

More than memory your presence is felt, 

a constant guest that I must host. 
 

     Hope is a glorious thing 

     and hope dies last, they say. 

     But my hope has died, and I’m still alive, 

     and you are forever away. 

and you are forever away. 

and you are forever away.
