The song is the same, but the meaning has changed


I know this blog is titled "ramblings on cast iron" and not "ramblings on songs Kathy wrote years ago."

But I would like to post the lyrics of one of my favorite songs that I personally wrote, in 1998.  

Back then it was referring to different people and a different situation, but, it applies to me today, so I'm posting it here.

There was a time when I finally was a part of something
I was useful, I was loved, I was so happy there.
But then one day they turned and locked the doors without a warning
They claimed that God shut it down.

But why would God betray me?
Why would God yank from me what he knows is so dear to me? 
I could never see, for the life of me, how God could be so cold
That is nothing like the God I used to know.

Did God really betray me?
Was it really God who yanked away what was so dear to me?
The places God has taken me, I know that he could never be so cold
That is nothing like the God I used to know.

She came into my life and said that she just wants to love me
She took me in and gained my trust and helped me grow.
But then one day she turned and walked away without a warning
She claimed that God told her to go.

But why would God betray me?
Why would God yank from me what he knows is so dear to me? 
I could never see, for the life of me, how God could be so cold
That is nothing like the God I used to know.

Did God really betray me?
Was it really God who yanked away what was so dear to me?
The places God has taken me, I know that he could never be so cold
That is nothing like the God I used to know.

Don't try to tell me what I know is not the truth.
Don't try to tell me that I don't know what I'm saying.

I took the risk and came to trust a man I so respected
He seemed to be so wise and so full of compassion.
But then one day he said "you're not to ever talk to me"
and he claimed that God told him so.

But why would God betray me?
Why would God yank from me what he knows is so dear to me? 
I could never see for the life of me how God could be so cold
That is nothing like the God I used to know.

Did God really betray me?
Was it really God who yanked away what was so dear to me?
Those of you who made such claims, how dare you tell me God could be so cold
That is nothing like the God I used to know.
No that is nothing like the God I used to know.
No that is nothing like the God I used to know...
