Just Like That

Until that day
my life had been a river
following a safe, predestinated course
suddenly detouring so unexpectedly
with uncompromising force
my strongholds broke down all too easily
I remember well how it did embarrass me
I hung on to his every smile
marvelled at his style

Just like that
he walked into my house
as smug as a cat
he was handsome and smart
walked away with my heart
Just like that
He found a temporary home in my flat
Telling innocent lies
Throwing dust in my eyes
But I led him on
Knowing that someday soon he'd be gone
Just like that
as though he only stopped a while for a chat
but my secrets he learned
leaving no stone unturned

And once again
the river's flowing slowly
following its safe and uneventful course
Now the tears have dried
Iit's become a pleasant break
I recall without remorse
But now and then I wonder where he is
and I will admit
he had something that I miss
I guess he was a rolling stone
the only one I've known

Just like that
he walked into my house
as smug as a cat
he was handsome and smart
walked away with my heart
Just like that
He found a temporary home in my flat
Telling innocent lies
Throwing dust in my eyes
But I led him on
Knowing that someday soon he'd be gone
Just like that
as though he only stopped a while for a chat
but my secrets he learned
leaving no stone unturned

Just like that
he walked into my house
as smug as a cat
he was handsome and smart
walked away with my heart
Just like that
as though he only stopped a while for a chat
but my secrets he learned
leaving no stone unturned
Just like that
