"Ancient Lover" is written to and inspired by an ex-girlfriend.

lyrics

I knew you'd finally come around back to me chickadee.
Sure enough you're wearing white like my dream told me.
Like you did when you were young you've run on out of time.
Ancient lover, what makes you think you'll be mine?

Admittingly there was a time where I was aching for your love.
But every time another man would steal away my turtle dove.
And that's the last time I'd ever let myself finish in second place.

Here you are with dirty knees begging for me.
You haven't had a chance my dear since you threw it all away.
And it will always be that way until you see a tunnel glowing white.
Ancient lover, never again you'll be mine.

I'd have to say the table's nicer from this side.
How's it feel to swim in the remains of where I cried?
Now I'm sitting on your thrown of empowerment and it feels great.

Excuse me miss but I've got a full day ahead of me.
So et me ask you kindly to get out of my way.
And it will always be that way until you see a tunnel glowing white.
Ancient lover, what makes you think you'll be, never again you'll be, you had your chance to be mine.
