Skeleton Key

Never knew what I was doing on these 6 strings
Maybe that was just the thing
10 years down the road, nothing to say
What didn’t get lost, didn’t get played

Put the words back in my mouth
Let me in on where my heart’s
Been digging around
Take the words down to my soul
Let them off somewhere
A place to grow

I know I haven’t been true to myself
It’s true enough for anyone else
Living at the end of somebody’s eyes
To be for sale, to be the prize

Pay the man out at the door
To reclaim what you came in for
Pay the man out at the door
Don’t kid yourself
It’s your war

Lately it’s coming back to me,
Got a skeleton key
Lately it’s coming back to me,
Got a skeleton key
It’s coming back for me

Walk around the house up on the hill
Try to be quiet, try to be still
Knocking off the dust of these 6 strings
I’m ready for what ever will bring

Lately it’s coming back to me
Got a skeleton key
Lately it’s coming back to me
Got a skeleton key
In a skeleton key
Lately it’s coming back to me
