Don't Play That Song Again

Here I am at a get together. Everything is going 
fine. I thought I was late getting here, but seems 
I am on time.

The D.J. plays a song and I am taken a-back. Anything, 
but this song, tell me why did he do that?

This song creates too many memories of a love I was
had. Like a time machine here I am visiting my own

There she is in a beautiful dress, the love of my 
life is adorned. I'm telling her, "When your mother 
gave birth to you, my love, a star was born."

She's telling me, "You are my sun, my moon, my stars
and my whole world. This is so wonderful! I am so 
blessed to have you call me your girl."

Now I see me putting a promise ring on her finger. 
She's now crying, by not only this, but by the
words of the song from singer.

Standing there and seeing this, I am frozen in time. 
Tears falling down, saying to myself, "This girl was 
once mine."

The song is now over and I snap back into reality.
People are staring, pointing, looking, asking what's
wrong with me.

Oh I am okay, I was taken a-back just then. I just 
have one request D.J., "Don't play that song again."
