where I left you last

by Alex Berger & Amber Rubarth

You came along like an old favourite song
But your tune fell too heavy;
Your notes out of key
I held myself back but I wanted to ask
Why your roots had grown steady;
Your branches cut clean

So what, or who, stopped you
On the path where I left you last?

Because, in a time and a place
When really we were both boys
You confessed that you wanted a life by the sea;
Get a boat and a family
So when I see you now in a suit and a frown
It brings me down
And makes me want to know

What, or who, stopped you
On the path where I left you last?

I’m not sure who you’re trying to convince
That you’ve moved on leaps and bounds since
There’s something of the devil about you;
It’s something strange and it’s bringing me down

You came along like an old fashioned song
That nobody remembers but me
You’ve fallen from grace down a path I can’t chase
But I’ll pray
And I’m sure that The Lord will put you back
On your track
So I can quit bugging you, singing

What, or who, stopped you
On the path where I left you last
