Roped and Tied

lyrics

It wasn’t in her looks
It wasn’t in her smile
It wasn’t in the cut of her clothes
It ain’t like she unleashed all her womanly wiles
Like I’d even fall for that, god knows

I can’t explain it,It ain’t natural
I can’t even run and hide

Cause I’m wrapped around her finger, caught in her trap
Penned up like a show horse, roped and tied
Cause I’m wrapped around her finger, caught in her trap
Penned up like a show horse, roped and tied

I tried to look away
Pretend I didn’t notice
It’s not as simple as that
She caught me lookin’ all sly like in the reflection
Pretendin’ to examine a bottle of Jack

I can’t explain it,It ain’t natural
I can’t even run and hide

Cause I’m wrapped around her finger, caught in her trap
Penned up like a show horse, roped and tied
Cause I’m wrapped around her finger, caught in her trap
Penned up like a show horse, roped and tied

I checked my watch
Looked at the door
Deciding which option was best
Feeling the panic
Shaken and stirred
And Trey Gray pounding a beat in my chest

I was out of the gate
and kickin’ up track
Leaving nothing but a vacuum behind
I was runnin’ like a racehorse runnin’ for the roses
But that was only in my mind

I can’t explain it,It ain’t natural
I can’t even run and hide

Cause I’m wrapped around her finger, caught in her trap
Penned up like a show horse, roped and tied
Cause I’m wrapped around her finger, caught in her trap
Penned up like a show horse, roped and tied
Cause I’m wrapped around her finger, caught in her trap
Penned up like a show horse, roped and tied
Cause I’m wrapped around her finger, caught in her trap
Penned up like a show horse, roped and tied

about

Schweitzer Los Angeles, California

My brother started writing songs and that was the spark that started me on my own songwriting course that would last the rest of my life. I chose to use my surname, "Schweitzer," for practical reasons, realizing long ago that pronouncing "Richard Schweitzer" was difficult. "Schweitzer Projects" under the "tindog music & stuff" umbrella is producing songs in the Pop / Pop rock or folk categories ... more
