You're A Treasure No One Opened (So I Asked You For The Key)

This song is by Bill Mallonee and appears on the album WPA Vol. 13 Hard-Scrabble Dreams (2012).

Now the stars, well they hung just like jewels in an old Kentucky sky
I was in need of some renewal, but I could not tell you why
Your spirit was strong and serious and deeper than the sea
You were a treasure no one had opened, so I asked you for the key.

There are paths a woman has to take, when it's time to flee
Maybe ghost or two you gotta shake when yer getting yourself free
And all those road maps that they handed you proved faulty to a "T."
You were a treasure no one had opened, so I asked you for the key.

There's a light that lingers in a bar. There's a certain way it falls
And the neon, she just whispers... softly after "last call."
And just for a golden moment, your eye it did catch mine
And me I knew right there and then we could last a lifetime

Now all the best songs remain unsung if you catch my notion
And a maybe poem that's a deep as the sea is better left unspoken
Still my lips will try to speak of everything you mean to me
You were a treasure no one had opened, so I asked you for the key
