about

When relationships end it can be a real mix of emotions and in some ways a relief. Laura delivers this message with real feeling and Emy's harmonies add the perfect textures to this blues ballad.

lyrics

I was so happy........ when you left me alone
A wish that came true just ..........like a mortgage or loan
I knew it was over.......when I was set free
Now I’m left out on the road that used to be

You might think it’s funny.......from this point of veiw
I don’t know if I ‘d rather..... be me or you
On new roads they’re building.......they now charge a fee
And I’m left out on the road that used to be


I know I seem twisted......like a leaf in the wind
I feel like I missed it........like an emptied out bin
Which road I should follow......is a mystery to me
So I’m left out on the road that used to be

I’ll make the best of it......no matter what comes
I would rise above it.......if I wasn’t all thumbs
With a plum on my finger......I’m crying with glee
Now I’m left out on the road that used to be


This life is a puzzle......a game played in time
It isn’t because of......any reason or rhyme
What once was the future.....becomes memory
And I’m left out on the road that used to be

I was so happy........ when you left me alone
Soon I’ll stop talkin’.......... and hang up the phone
Facing the darkness.......that’s in front of me
Now I’m left out on the road that used to be
