Vacant Heart Refrain

Vacant Heart Refrain_PIC

Yet another that was written during the university days. As a student of history, I learned this to be true: “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” Abraham Lincoln said that. More leaders and institutions could have listened.

LYRICS:

Lady of the castle
All fortified in name
Your march is into battle
Our loss is what you gain

It’s okay
You got me where you want me
It’s okay
You got me where you want me

Lady of the morning
Your dream becomes my day
Your eyes see all that matters
Then you look away

It’s okay
You got me where you want me
It’s okay
You got me where you want me

Lady of the summer
With vacant heart refrain
It got you in the shackles
An orchestrated reign

It’s okay
You got me where you want me
It’s okay
They got me where they want me
It’s okay
They got you where they want you
It’s okay
I got you where I want you
