Part rock ballad, part indie Americana with pop flair, part retro 1970's AOR, part singer-songwriter.

Ever lose the love of your life because she was traumatized in childhood, hadn't worked it out, and projected it all on you and blamed and shamed you, just as her parents did to her, because that's all she knew how to do to move through the world?

Yeah, that's this song.
Keeper
© April 8, 2018 by David Nyro
I put out the dog,
the dog I couldn’t take care of.
Leave on the porch light
for the lonely teenager in love,
The wanderer from down under,
and the angel from above.
You said I left you no choice
You had to harden your heart
Harden your heart
Harden your heart
Harden your heart
Empty my pockets; two Altoids and a five spot
Set off the rockets
We’re coming in hot!
Two Valkyries, with different trajectories.
This misbegotten moon is shot.
Rose-colored glasses
You made it very clear.
You had no more room in your heart
for a head in the clouds
A broken promise and foolish dreams
Bridge: Alone in your room, miserable girl. Alone in your room, mad at the world. Alone in your room, no one can reach you;
alone in your room, your heart set in stone
You said I left you no choice
You had to harden your heart
Harden your heart
Harden your heart
Harden your heart
..................................
Remember when you said I was a “keeper”
Remember when you said I was a "keeper."
Remember when you said I was a "keeper."
(Kristen Marlo: Harden my heart)
Remember when you said I was a "keeper."
(Kristen Marlo: Harden my heart)
Remember when you said I was a “keeper”
(Kristen Marlo: Harden my heart)
Remember when you said I was a "keeper."
(Kristen Marlo: Harden my heart)
Remember when you said I was a “keeper!!!”

Remember when you said I was a keeper.... x
