Words And Music By Lucinda Williams

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

And I changed the number on my phone
So you can't call me up at home.
And you can't say those things to me
That make me fall down on my knees.
I changed the number on my phone.

'Cause I changed the kind of car I drive
So you can't see me when I go by.
And you can't chase me up the street
And you can't knock me off my feet.
I changed the kind of car I drive.

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

And I changed the tracks underneath the train
So you can't find me ever again.
And you can't trace my path,
And you can't hear me laugh,
And honey, I'm laughin' all the time.

Oh!

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

I changed the lock on my front door,
I changed the number on my phone.
I changed the kind of car I drive,
I changed the kind of clothes I wear.
I changed the tracks underneath the train,
I changed the name of this town.
I changed the name of this town.
I changed the name of this town.
