Once Upon A Time

Written by: Michael Smith

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"
