Incredulity at her ability to turn her love off because it wasn't convenient.
HOW COULD YOU
words & music by Ted Myers
1. How could you lock it away?
How could you lock it away?
Like an unruly child that just wouldn't obey
You locked your sweet love away
2. How could you throw it away?
How could you throw it away?
Like a poor homeless dog that you picked up astray
You threw my true love away
Now if true love finds you
It may not be by choice
It may not be convenient
But you'd better rejoice
For once it is gone
It may never come again
And to push it away is a crime and a sin
3. And you know it will haunt you someday
It'll come back and haunt you someday
It was sweet, it was fine, but it just wouldn't pay
So you threw my true love away
