Lyrical Musings an emotional journey via train of thought

Once upon a time

May 19th, 2014

I wrote you right into my fairytale

you were the leading man

and I fought tooth and nail

to get to our happy end


You were no prince charming

this much was easy to see

still your smile was disarming

completely taking over me


I’d tell myself maybe it was okay

If we were perfect from the start

As long as I could hear you say

that I was always in your heart


I’d heard that real love is nothing more

than two imperfect strangers

who refuse to walk out that door

both completely unaware of the danger


And in my head that picture painted was us

Although I couldn’t see it at the time

That wasn’t the story of our love

Looking back, I wish I could rewind


The problem with Hollywood

Is that movies end at the beginning

Just when things are getting good

The end credits start spinning


The same is true for us, now I see

at the time what I didn’t know

is what seemed like the last chapter for me

was just another turn on this road


There’s no use in reading story books

And expecting our lives to follow

Even today I can’t look

into the future and see my tomorrow


So I close the gilded page

to step back into my life

and enjoy the beautiful day

having never been your wife
