Call The Shots

(Riff Regan)

There was a time when you had it all
Had the power to make me feel small
Now that’s all melted away
Your moment was yesterday

There was a time when you couldn’t do wrong
A Notting Hill peacock struttin’ along
But that’s all fading away
In the end I could not stay

You don’t call the shots no more
You once did, but not any more
You don’t call the shots no more
I’m leaving today, through that door

There was a time when you had it made
But your appeal’s starting to fade
Now that’s all turning to grey
Your moment has slipped away

There was a time when I trusted you
Now your words don’t ring true
Not a lot more I can say
I have to be on my way

You don’t call the shots no more
You once did, but not any more
You don’t call the shots no more
I’m leaving today, through that door

You thought I was an easy touch
Never going to amount to much
Things have changed and now I know
It’s time to move, it’s time to grow
You thought that I’d never leave
But I found I cannot breath
I have to go and get on my way
I won’t be coming back to stay – no no

There was a time when you had it all
Had the power to make me feel small
Now that’s all melted away
Your moment was yesterday

There was a time when you couldn’t do wrong
A Notting Hill peacock struttin’ along
But that’s all fading away
In the end I could not stay

You don’t call the shots no more etc
