The Future Ain't What It Used To Be

This song is by Bleu Edmondson and appears on the album The Future Ain't What It Used To Be (2010).

She had a smile that would make you put your faith in the Lord
She was the unspoken truth I was lookin' for
I was a bitter hearted twister, I was a refugee
And just a scared little boy lost at sea

She said she kissed my lips and she just knew
And in her sunset eyes, I saw it too
But this world has a way of breakin' you down
'Til the fire that burned now can't be found

I guess no one really knows the price that's pain
And there ain't no heart that goes scot free
I hear the bells ringin' from far away
And the future ain't what it used to be

When it turned to dust I cannot say
I guess she lost her faith when I lost my way
Though I loved her more than I dreamed I could
A coward now stands where her hero stood

I guess no one really knows the price that's pain
And there ain't no heart that goes scot free
I hear the bells ringin' from far away
And the future ain't what it used to be

Well, from the outstretched hand that I denied
To the anguished tears that sunset, cried
From the hurt in the dark, the fear and the doubt
She couldn't give anymore, her love ran out
