Song Description

Turn That Key is a modern country song with elements such as a pedal steel guitar that harken back to earlier days. The acoustic guitar drives most of the song while the piano adds commentary and color.

Story Behind the Song

The writer is getting ready to leave a relationship that is clearly over, yet she recognizes that neither party put into the relationship what was required to keep it strong. She remembers people from her past that knew her before life's trials jaded her outlook on love and wonders why she never cared if her lover was cheating. She wonders if perhaps modern life is to blame and wonders if things would have worked had they lived in a past generation. She regrets her jaded outlook and recognizes that she tends to leave instead of working things out.

The old house tells me life's a choice
Called an old flame just to hear his voice
He remembers me the way I was back then

You never called and I didn't write
I knew it was Holly in Detroit
But I said nothing, I suppose I didn't care

But as your wheels drive away
Perhaps it could've be another way
In a different time, simpler it seems

It's just make believe
Get in, turn the key

Once a man held me down
Turned my bottle, ran me around
I should've known,
But I couldn't see that far

I was always the leaving kind
Don't want no trouble
Don't pay no mind
And the sign said warnings up ahead

You know back then
It could have made sense
She cooks the meals, he pays the rent
But these days simple lives may be long gone

I don't believe
just turn the key

I don't know if it was just get by
I'll wander these streets alone again tonight
I tried to talk, my words fell on closed ears

You told me I didn't have to cry
But I did without a reason why
I sat down, drank your name away

Time to leave
Just turn the key
