NEW FLAME

A song about a stock market manipulator, married to an appallingly affected Nullipara,
who brought her children up with monstrous delusions of grandeur.

All that time I was livin' alone
I thought to myself
That I must be wrong
Trying to hang onto
What we got
Another page in our history
Picking up the pieces
Of you and me
Tell me, is it so hard
To make a new start

Now you got yourself
A new flame
Don't you think, think it's a shame
Now you got yourself
A new flame
Trying to play that same old game

You only get out what you put in
And at times, it wore all thin
I couldn't find a way
Back into your heart
When something better comes along
You're out the door, long gone
Doesn't that always
Suit her just right

Now I'm free, free from the spell
A place I know so well
Now I'm free, free from the spell
And I couldn't find another way back in
