Raised on literary romance and
All those "Once upon a times"
Happily ever after fairy tales
Those silly notions through innocent eyes
But then life's brutality
In love makes you bleed
One after another
Lies of promised "love you forevers"
Until just a little faith, I prayed
"Lord, please choose her for me"
I thanked God for modern miracles
Which now I know will never cease
And for you His answer standing there
Who would of thought a man could
Fall in love, every single day
More and more, again and again
And at night, every now and then
I turn pinch myself and blink my eyes
As He whispers words across my mind
"Once upon a time"
