CHANGE THE LOCKS

I changed the locks on my front door
So you won't see me anymore
And you won't come inside my house
And you won't lie down on my couch
I changed the locks on my front door

I changed the number on my phone
So you won't call me up at home
And you won't say those things to me
That always keep me on my knees
I changed the number on my phone

I changed the kind of clothes I wear
So you won't find me anywhere
And you won't spot me in a crowd
And you won't call my name out loud
I changed the kind of clothes I wear

I changed the kind of car I drive
So you won't follow me when I go by
And you won't chase me up the street
And you won't knock me off of my feet
I changed the kind of car I drive

I changed the tracks underneath the train
So you won't find me again
And you won't trace my path
And you won't hear my laugh
I changed the tracks underneath the train

I changed the name of this town
So you won't follow me down
And you won't touch me like before
And you won't make me want you more
I changed the name of this town
I changed the name of this town
I changed the name of this town
