Returning To The Scene


Lyrics

"Returning To The Scene"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

In broad daylight, the sight went unseen

I guess I got away with it, and now my hands are clean

But I want you back, and you’ll never know, so I’m returning to the scene


Acting casual, that I can do

Although my heart is racing, no one has a clue

I committed a crime, but you will never know

Now I’ve got another chance I don’t intend to blow


I stole your heart, now I’m returning to the scene

I’ll never confess, but I’m as guilty as can be

Standing by and wondering why, I know that I’ll walk free

For the last time, I’m returning to the scene


Acting surprised, I can fake it with the best

Deep down inside I know I must be blessed

I committed a crime, but what you don’t know won’t hurt

Gotta keep it to myself or get my just desserts


I stole your heart, now I’m returning to the scene

I’ll never confess, but I’m as guilty as can be

Standing by and wondering why, I know that I’ll walk free

For the last time, I’m returning to the scene


I’ve learned my lesson, to never misbehave

I was gonna love and leave you, now I’m ready to be brave

For the rest of my life I’m gonna treat you like a queen

I’m back, as if nothing happened, returning to the scene


I stole your heart, now I’m returning to the scene

I’ll never confess, but I’m as guilty as can be

Standing by and wondering why, I know that I’ll walk free

For the last time, I’m returning to the scene


It’s hard to say why a man will stray

But now I’m ready to love you ‘till my dyin’ day

I’m not gonna let myself feel bad about it now

Time to start a new chapter, and renew my vow


I killed the past, now I’m returning to the scene

I’ll never confess, but I’m as guilty as can be

To stand beside the perfect crime, murder in the first degree

Just for one last time, I’m returning to the scene

Brief Description

Not sure how to describe this, except that it's probably acoustic garage rock with an acoustic guitar solo that is about being a guilty bystander who's narrowly escaped persecution for cheating in a relationship, feels lucky, and has learned his lesson, and confessing only in his inner thoughts.
