Locked Away

Lyrics

play(Princess, I'm leaving.)

play(Look at all these bills,
playaren't they going to get paid?)

play(You have the right to remain silent.)
play(Anything you say
playcan and will be used
playagainst you in a court of law.)

playIf I got locked away
playAnd we lost it all today
playTell me honestly
playWould you still love me the same?

playIf I showed you my flaws
playIf I couldn't be strong
playTell me honestly
playWould you still love me the same?

playRight about now
playIf a judge for-life me
playWould you stay by my side?
playOr is you going to say goodbye?
playCan you tell me right now?

playIf I couldn't buy you the fancy things in life
playshawty, would it be alright?
playCome and show me that you are down

playNow tell me would you really ride for me?
play-Would you really ride for me?-
playBaby, tell me would you die for me?
play-Tell me would you die for me?-
playWould you spend your whole life with me?
play-What's that?-

playAnd we lost it all today
playTell me honestly
playWould you still love me the same?
playIf I showed you my flaws
playIf I couldn't be strong

meaningMeaning

“It was inspired by true events,” Theron Thomas tells Radio.com. “Our dad was locked up for five years. And during the time he was gone, our mom held it down. She’d take us to see him. They’re still together to this day. They’ve been together for 36 years. So we thought that that was a great story to write a song about.”
