Song Description
Today I finished the preparation for another YouTube presentation of one of my songs which am also UpLoading here. I'm quite embarrassed by the lead vocals on this song, because I wrote it about 20 years ago especially to be done by a female and had hoped I could get a female vocal on it ... but that never materialized ... so MY original vocal, with the voice artificially "elevated", is what is on it. BUT ... I want the song to be heard. The subject was based on a young female neighbour who was in an abusive situation ("relationship" definitely does NOT describe it). It's called "LIVE-IN TARGET", and I hope it will be listened to with the above explanation in mind.

Lyrics & Music ©By Pete Dowan (SOCAN) LIVE-IN TARGET 1st VERSE: A new beginning That's what it is I won't forgive him As Long as I live He desecrated All that was mine Nobody knew it. I lied every time. CHORUS : NOBODY SHOULD BE A LIVE-IN TARGET TAKING EVERYTHING HE THROWS NOBODY SHOULD BE A LIVE-IN TARGET HOPIN' THAT NOBODY KNOWS... I COVERED IT UP IF IT SHOWED 2nd VERSE: I'm a survivor I'm not alone Won't be subjected To hell in a home I listened to him Cuttin' me down If I'm so worthless Why'd he stick around? CHORUS : NOBODY SHOULD BE A LIVE-IN TARGET TAKING EVERYTHING HE THROWS NOBODY SHOULD BE A LIVE-IN TARGET HOPIN' THAT NOBODY KNOWS... I COVERED IT UP IF IT SHOWED BRIDGE: That day is so clear Said no goodbyes Conquered my fears Summoned the nerve to fly [nobody should be a live-in target... etc] NO GOODBYES, IT WAS MY TURN TO FLY 3rd VERSE: He isn't worth it Mud on the ground. (He's not worth it) For every "sorry" A scar can be found (He's not worth it) I thought I loved him (He's not worth it) And he would change (He's not worth it) Had to forget it (He's not worth it) It's always the same (He's not worth it) CHORUS : NOBODY SHOULD BE A LIVE-IN TARGET TAKING EVERYTHING HE THROWS NOBODY SHOULD BE A LIVE-IN TARGET HOPIN' THAT NOBODY KNOWS... I COVERED IT UP IF IT SHOWED BRIDGE: That day is so clear Said no goodbyes Conquered my fears Summoned the nerve to fly (END) ( Nobody should be a live in target ) [repeat and fade] NO GOODBYES, IT WAS MY TURN TO FLY THREW THE BULLSEYE AWAY....., NO MORE AFTER THAT DAY NO GOODBYES, IT WAS MY TURN TO FLY THREW THE BULLSEYE AWAY....., NO MORE AFTER THAT DAY.
