lyrics

“Where are you going?” I said to her
She turned her back on me, walked out of the room
So I said it again, “Where you going to?”

She was the girl that I’d have sworn
Would never break my heart
But there it is, plain to see, on the floor

No one could make up a story like that
And if that’s the price of love then please take it back
Because the truth ain’t worth it anymore

Pictures of her bring me to my knees
But I keep them around like aces up my sleeve
And pull them out every time the truth hits home

She said she loved me too much to carry on that way

Just not enough to stay
And she left me there and my heart on the floor all alone

No one could make up a story like that Please tell me how am I supposed to react
Because the truth ain’t worth it anymore

Peculiar how true love
Are two words that just don’t signify a thing to me
And I swear that next time
I won’t let one or the other get the best of me

“Where are you going?” I said to her
She turned her back on me, walked out of the room
So I said it again, “Where you going to?”

Brian Ledford draws from his roots and what’s close to his heart and transforms it into great songs.

Music as much informed by The Clash as The Flatlanders. At turns as lush as Lanois, or as direct as Cash. The son of Oklahoma concrete finishers and Oilmen, he was born and raised in Texas based in Lubbock, Ft. Worth and Austin before relocating to the Pacific Northwest.
