Changed My Life - Acoustic version

Song Description

The girl feels like she can't keep her heart protected for the first time in a long time, because she has perfected the art of being guarded. She goes on to admit that she is the kind of person to make a mistake or screw up because people have let her down in the past. Up until this point the girl has viewed being guarded as a strength and is now coming to realize that she only felt afraid to open up. Staying closed off is actually a weakness. She then tells the other person that shes been waiting for them to make a mistake, but they are starting to change her views on love and commitment. They changed her life.

Changed My Life

It's been a long time
Long time coming that I'm
Unable to stay my heart
Under the shadows
Of ghosts and regret
I'd perfected the art
I let you think you've won me
Won me over
Then wait for the slightest mistake
I keep bracing for you
For you to leave me
So when you do I won't break

I've been waiting for a runaway
I've been waiting for the rainy days
You didn't just change my mind
You changed my life

I've been lookin for your red flags
I've been ready to pack my bags
I was waiting for a goodbye
Until you changed my life

I thought strength was holding
Holding back
Playing cards to the chest
But I never felt strong
I was just afraid of
Giving more than I get
