Just For Me

Everything has a beginning and an end
So drop the facade, we don't have time to watch everyone pretend
Here we are in college, partying day and night
We wake up in strange places, knowing it isn't right
Yet here we are, still being fake
We all know what we truly want, do we hide for our own sake?
Scared of what the future brings
We talk like we want the car and a shiny ring
Let's all agree to just be true
It just makes it easier for me and you
Let's paint a picture, of where we want to be
The start of our story, beginning with our own family tree
Here I am alone, but along comes Sally
I want something more, no time to dilly dally
We start to talk, we start to date
And somewhere along the way, I realize this was fate
I buy a ring, I want to propose
But I get so nervous, and on one knee it shows
Before I can finish, she utters one word
She quickly says "yes", is that really what I heard?
I stand on my feet, we kiss for what feels like an hour
Being around this woman, I feel like I have a super power
I feel like this is it, I am truly whole
I feel it in my bones, and in my very soul
So we get married, and a year goes by
Then something happens, my oh my
My wife comes to me in awe, an expression I can't explain
She looks so shocked, almost insane
She show me a little stick, it just shows a little plus
She says it's time, it's happened to us
We look forward to dressing our own child
A life so calm, but yet so wild
We all were children, till our children smiled
Something so innocent, something so new
And you have your significant other standing next to you
Two people, and now three
And years ago I thought I'd be living my life... Just for me
