Funny story. I wrote this song based on a story that a friend of mine told me. I asked if I could use the story as a song. She said yes. This was born.

I think they reconciled, and she showed him the song. And that's how he found out about her little secret.


You took your hand in his two years ago that day. You said that you’d be his. You didn’t hesitate. It was July and you felt like you could fly. There was no limit but the sky.

He took you to his bed and had his way with you and, like the girls before, he tore your heart in two. It was September. You still remember that there was nothing you could do.

And like the ocean tide, back to your room to hide. He’d call you up that night, maybe for one last ride. It was March and the winds were very harsh, but still you let him back inside. They said to stay away. They said he’d kill your soul. You said that they don’t know. You said your heart was whole. It was a year. He’d shed his tears. But in the end he’d break what couldn’t mend.

You wanted love so bad but you could never see the man inside. You wanted love so bad but you could never bring yourself to tell him goodbye.

And you’ll never know your daughter now. You killed her then you closed the door. You’ll never stay forever. Never more.
