Lila No. 9

Lila No. 9

I went to Dallas
To be with somebody else
I came back to Tulsa
To be all by myself
But I still think about her
Even after all this time
Her concrete affection
Set hard upon my mind

She called me cowboy
But I don’t feel like one now
I was riding fences
Until my heart slipped out
And got branded and cut loose
Among the cactus and sage
It might look like freedom
But it don’t feel that way

Chorus:
I can still remember
The night I crossed the line
Between being with her
And being left behind
She’s a heart rustler
One of those hearts was mine
Now there’s a brand on my heart
That says Lila No. 9

We had some good times
And for a while things felt right
But when she got restless
My grip wasn’t that tight
You don’t have to say goodbye
To know you’ve come to the end
There’s beauty in wildness
But you can’t fence it in

Chorus:
I can still remember
The night I crossed the line
Between being with her
And being left behind
She’s a heart rustler
One of those hearts was mine
Now there’s a brand on my heart
That says Lila No. 9
