Locked & Loaded

Liner Notes: 

Some debts can't be repaid, but every now and then someone tries.

Lyrics: 

Days at a time
You lay in the dark
Under shadow
Marked

Courting a crime
You held in your heart
Wading shallow
Sharp

Locked & loaded
So determined to be lost
Locked & loaded
You were itching to be tossed

But I couldn't let you
I didn't want to let you
Dive in, dive in
No, I just couldn't let you
I swore I'd never let you win, win

Coming undone
I slip through the crack
To the bottom
Black

Out of the sun
And ready to snap
Anchor pulling
Back

Locked & loaded
So determined to be lost
Locked & loaded
I am itching to be tossed

So I wouldn't let you
I didn't want to let you
Dive in, dive in
No, I just couldn't let you
I didn't want to let you win, win

Locked & loaded
So determined to be tossed
Locked & loaded
Pushing back at any cost
Locked & loaded
I don't want to be lost

So I'll try to let you
I gotta try to let you
Dive in, dive in
Oh, I will try to let you
I'm gonna try to let you win, win

Hope I still know how to swim

I like the dark atmosphere of the song. You have a very pleasant voice, Leslie!

Nice piano/vocal performance. The music seems to fit the lyrics quite well. Very good singing, too. This was a well done song, for sure.

Just a wonderful melody and soothing droney piano line. It fits the topic and mood so well. The repetitive piano in the verses makes the changes really pop out. Nicely done! Smile
