Walk Out The Door
My words turn into fire,
My tears turn into gold,
My dreams are full of liars,
How am I supposed to believe a word I'm told?

Honestly, tell me something truthful,
Don't promise me I'll believe the lie you told,
I'm better off looking through your glass window,
Crying stop, right before you pull off my blind fold

If life is paint by numbers,
You'd just be black and white,
Everything you say, a different shade of gray,
But it won't get you through your night

Honestly, tell me something truthful,
Don't promise me I'll believe the lie you told,
I'm better off looking through your glass window,
Crying stop, right before you pull off my blind fold

Honey don't you know,
I've heard your words before,
You're a repeat of every sad movie,
Just written to a different score

Honestly, tell me something truthful,
No, don't promise I'll believe the lie you told,
And I'm better off looking through your window,
Crying stop, oh please drop the knife you hold

You're a repeat of every sad movie,
I've heard your words before,
And now you're standing there, crying stop
As you watch me walk out the door

Tell me what you think!

Your such a good writer.....very good stories , always a theme, always some clever wordsmitherie, but you also have your traits .... you cant help yourself from saying to your subject/victim something like..."Babe you are such a looser.....God what a sorry case you are...O there's loads more like you on the pile! etc etc lol
As a song it starts off a killer...and the story and imagery are excellent ...If I were to sing it I'd re-write a few lines to fit the flow, but that's a personal thing.

I dont get the Window bit though.......explain.....please...

Hey!

The reason that the flow is a little bit off is because it's a blues-y song. When it's sung, and played on the guitar, it all goes together very well!

As for the windows bit, imagine when you first meet someone, your first impression of them. You might meet someone and think "I think they're really nice, and funny!" So, in the song, the person is pretty much just saying that they wish they had just kept it at how they thought the person was, so they didn't have to find out that they really weren't as nice, or as funny as they appear to be.
Does that makes sense?

Makes all the sense in the world...I imagine a little round ships window, a little misted and dirty around the edges, brass bolts holding it on..... a new land and adventure bobbing slowly into view.....

But the experience should be embraced and not taken at face value....not?

I guess it's really just how you interpret the song! If it can be about different things for different people, or resonate with them each in a different way, then I'm always going to be happy with that.

To me, for the person in the song, more embraced, but this is just them wishing that it wasn't, you know? They wish it didn't have to be that way really.
