Revolving Door

He says, “you’ve been a great lover,

opened up doors for me, 

been there when I needed you

but I’m going to leave you, woman

for I know you could do better than me”

He picks up his suitcase, 

then he’s running out the door

 

And that’s the way it is

that’s the way it’ll always be

lovers in and out the revolving door

 

She says, “I’m going to leave this town

so much has been given

and I’m grateful for what’s been

but I need to get going

for I know I could do better”

She packs her things, 

then she’s running out the door

 

And that’s the way it is

that’s the way it’ll always be

lovers in and out the revolving door

 

There’s always a path to something better 

there’s always something else that will find you

all the sweet things that you dream 

she sends a postcard to check in, say where she’s been

but he doesn’t look back, throws all those lost loves into his sack

 

And that’s the way it is

that’s the way it’ll always be

lovers who dream 

and lovers who leave

artistsdreamerslost loversloversmoving on

Interestingly enough, Don, it was inspired by listening to Leonard Cohen so it came out in this format. If only I could put it to music and hire a singer.

Interesting way you have written this Mika. Could almost be a verse/chorus song.....

Tragic and sad!

Not all love stories have a happy ending😏
