You Walked Out The Door

from Do You Think? by Lee Quick



Written for the Country Showdown competition in 2001.
Won $500.


Well... long time no see, sure has been a while
Looks like you’re getting around in town while you flash that smile
And now you've got that look in your eyes again
It is a little tempting, but I remember when

You wore your clothes one time and threw ‘em all over the floor
You wore me out and then you came around for more
You whispered in my ear, I thought I knew what for
But then you packed your bags and added up your score
You tore out my heart, showed it to me, threw it on the floor, stepped on it, turned around and walked out the door

You rolled into my life in tight blue jeans
You proved a pretty face ain’t always what it seems
And though that slippery tongue knew just what to say
You showed off your good asset when you turned away

(repeat CHORUS)

I can’t be sure when a love comes knockin’
I can’t think straight when my heart is throbbin’
I can’t believe every smiling face
But I can put you back in your place

Well so long babe, I hope you have a time
Maybe you’ll gain a little wisdom down the line
And when that flashy smile goes by the wayside
Remember why there’s no one standing by your side

(repeat CHORUS)

Yeah, you tore out my heart, showed it to me, threw it on the floor, stepped on it, turned around – showed your best side – and walked out the door
