Lost the Beat

Lost the Beat

We had it all once, babe,
a glorious moment in the sun.
We had it, loved naively,
but serenely blind we came undone

It slipped away so easily,
each of us felt carefree, still thinking
all was well between us:
Our hearts broke each other without blinking

Remembering our life now
it all feels ridiculous, absurd,
I guess our love was frail indeed,
we both let it go without a word.

If I could, I’d take it back,
but our shattered hearts are rightly wary.
My wretched soul fears more pain
and sees you as its adversary.

So we stay apart, my dear.
I won’t risk grief over you anew.
Reign nostalgia firmly in
and bid you decisively adieu.

 

 

Remember

Remember

We met at the park,
you came upon me and stopped to talk.
When you saw I had kids
you didn’t freak out and
I smiled.

You never pushed too hard,
but you invited me places.
We met again and again,
and every time
I smiled.

One night, saying goodbye,
you reached into the car
and kissed me.
All the way home, oh, how
I smiled.

One night, at your place,
we explored one another,
and before it went too far
you asked me,
“Are you sure?”
I said yes, and
I smiled.

So many nights together,
you came to mine and tapped
at the bedroom window.
I would fly to the front door
and we would kiss and kiss.
So much love,
so many smiles.

Whatever happened to us?

Fairy Tale

Fairy Tale

Don’t think I haven’t seen you
watching me with my drink.
I’ve seen your eyes flick over me
I saw the subtle wink.

But I’m not what you think I am,
I’m not a good little girl.
I might be glad to take you home
and rock your little world.

But I don’t want a fairy tale,
I don’t need a shining knight.
I’m not looking for forever,
I’m just looking for tonight.

So come on over, sweetheart.
I’ll buy you a drink.
Let you look, look your fill.
I don’t care what you think.

I’ll show you just who I am,
and you may fall in love.
But I don’t want commitments,
I’m not what you’re dreaming of.

Cause I don’t want a fairy tale,
I don’t need a shining knigt.
I’m not looking for forever,
I’m just looking for tonight.
