Love is an Abandoned Car – Julie Matthews
From the album ‘Such is Life’ Julie Matthews

This love is an abandoned car
That nobody wants to drive anymore
Left out to rust in the rain
Left on some lonely highway
Broken up and stripped down for parts
Like the pieces of our broken hearts
This love is an abandoned car
We don't drive anymore

This love is like a merry go round
That don't go nowhere just up and down
Circle once and circle again
They say the thrills in the spin
But you asked the man who took our money to stop it
You were weary and wanted just to get off it
This love is like a merry go round
And you're climbing down

Once this love it could light up the heavens
Ride through the roughest storm
But now the edges are a little too tattered
And the heart is a little too warn

This love is like an old 45
That once upon a time made us jive
Now it just gathers dust in a box
Or props up the leg of the table that rocks
And I promised myself I would play it sometime
But I guess I just let it slip by
This love is like an old 45
This love is like a merry go round
This love is an abandoned car
That we don’t drive anymore
