She was an actress and a dancer
A perfect build in careful lines
I worked this scene to my advantage
Blackmailed her into being mine

And late in life I left the family
Too old to be considered brave
Too young to make a good decision
So frozen in my tracks I stayed

And in my dreams I saw the future
As clear as master locks could change
He tied the locals to their podiums
As they would scream "We think you've changed!
We know you've changed!"

And late in life I left the family
Too old to be considered brave
Too young to make a good decision
So frozen in my tracks I stayed

And just the same as I met her
Man, I knew when it was over
She was running out the back door
I was running out the side
And you know I got to wonder,
Lord, if ever I should see her
Oh, maybe when we're older
Oh, maybe when we die

And late in life I left the family
Too old to be considered brave
Too young to make a good decision
So frozen in my tracks I stayed

And late in life I left the family
Too old to be considered brave
Too young to make a good decision
So frozen in my tracks I stayed
