Your Way
Music and Lyrics by Kathleen Dooley (with a serious nod and great respect for Paul Anka)
2016

It’s getting late
We have to finish this
And so I break down again
It was always so easy for you to just let it go
And easier for you to pretend

The end is near
You’re right on that so far
But how could we simply walk away?
We were two halves of the same whole
But now you’re going your own way

I saw the charts you used to flee
I knew the man you wanted to be
But what you chewed up
And what you spit out
Wasn’t anything but me

And now you say it’s amusing to you
As one who never dropped to your knees
But did you notice as you stood so tall
The fool who only wanted to please?

I saw the charts you used to flee
I and always knew the man you wanted to be
But what you chewed up
And what you spit out
Wasn’t anything but me

And yes, oh, yes…
