Music and lyrics written by Angela Lewis....
I promised you, "anything"
And you went all or nothing
I gave you everything,
Did I not?

The times when my heart sings
In a minor key
‘Cause this heart of mine don’t know
Any other chords

I don’t quite know how to say what I’m thinking
Oh, all I know, losing you feels so effortless

I closed all the doors
And burned all the bridges
There’s no way anyone’s getting in And maybe one day
I’ll find the strength
To open my heart back up again

    Song MeaningLewis' explanation:
    "The end of a close relationship.
    In my case, platonic, but others could relate to it as a romantic relationship.

    That kind where by the time everything comes to a head, you've already let go of the situation and are done dealing with it. You've already moved on. You feel at peace, yet sad. Relieved, almost. In some ways, you wonder if it was something you did - or didn't - do. But in the end, retaining the relationship just isn't worth the effort.

    As far as the filtered ending, it was supposed to be symbolic of an answering machine message. Sometimes it's just easier to say what you have to say in a song rather than a phone call."
