Lock It Up

Written in March 2003 in Nashville, Tennessee

Early Sunday morning
Raining without warning
And I left the windows open in my car
There ain’t no point in talking
When your mind is set on walking
You’re gonna close the door you opened in my heart

And I do believe
You’re the one with the key
So lock it up before you leave

Early afternoon
Will sing it’s lonely tune
Empty as this room where I stand
I find myself thinking
I find my spirits sinking
I’m as empty as this drink in my hand

And I do believe
You’re the one with the key
So lock it up before you leave

Don’t you worry, baby
There ain’t no one coming in
Keep it with you and maybe
If you wanna come back again
You can let yourself back in.

You can let yourself back in

As sure as Sunday evening
I will still be grieving
Retrieving all these memories of you
You say I’ll find another
And that I will recover
But there ain’t no other lover gonna do

And I do believe
You’re the one with the key
So lock it up before you leave

Lock it up before you leave

Now, it’s early Monday morning
It’s without warning
And I left the windows open in my car
