She had a lot of shoes. He was just another pair. There is still plenty of room in her closet and regular sales at Nordstrom's.
CHANGING SHOES Montgomery Delaney c 2004

You change your men like you change your shoes
You simply cannot be alone
You make them think they are losing you
But you cannot lose what you never owned

You change your shoes like you change your men
You kick them off and walk away
And then you do the same again
A different pair for every day

(chorus)
And one baby when you
Retrace your steps
You might be full of regret
And long to feel me on your feet
And one day baby Oh your memories will haunt you
Your mirror it will taunt you
And you might think of me…

You change your men like you change your shoes
You put the old ones on a shelf
Next to others you have used
And then you walk on someone else

You change your shoes like you change your men
And some you just try on for size
And then you do the same again
Exchange them for a different lie

(repeat chorus)
(bridge)

And with each and every
Step you ever take
This fool’s heart will heal
While some other poor fool’s heart
It breaks….
You change your shoes like you change your men
You change your men like you change your shoes….
