Echo Roar

I never really thought
I was givin away my heart.
The feelings that made me say "I love you",
Were never really true.
But at the same time, I felt something inside
That let me breathe more easily.
I stretched my wings,
And once I leaped,
I let my heart break

Chorus•
When you made the silence
Louder than the chaos
I couldn't see- What was happenin' to me! Oh,
With my back to you
Playin' real smooth.
You slammed the door;
And you let the echo roar.•

My head was spinnin',
Thought the t.v. was on.
I felt the change
Right away!
Hey,
Doesn't that stuff only happen
In sad old country songs?
I turned around
And gravity pulled me down
The memories enfolding me

•Back to Chorus

~You were there
And you were gone
Walkin across what was our lawn
Putting one foot in front of the other..
I prayed, you'd turn around
But of course that only happens...
In good old country songs

•When you made the silence Louder than the chaos
I couldn't see... What's gonna happen to me? Oh!
With my back to you
Playin' real smooth
You slammed the door
And you let the echo roar.•
Yes... You slammed the door...
And you let the echo roar
