LyricsEdit

She was an actress and a dancer
A perfect build in careful lines
I worked this scene to my advantage
Blackmailed her into being mine

And late in life I left the family
Too old to be considered brave
Too young to make a good decision
So frozen in my tracks I stayed

And in my dreams I saw the future
As clear as master locks could change
He tied the locals to their podiums
As they would scream "We think you've changed!"

And late in life I left the family
Too old to be considered brave
Too young to make a good decision
So frozen in my tracks I stayed

And just the same as I met her
Man, I knew when it was over
She was running out the back door
I was running out the side

And you know I got to wonder,
Lord, if ever I will see her
Oh, maybe when we're older
Oh, maybe when we die

And late in life I left the family
Too old to be considered brave
Too young to make a good decision
So frozen in my tracks I stayed

And late in life I left the family
Too old to be considered brave
Too young to make a good decision
So frozen in my tracks I stayed
