After watching the Nashville T.V. series –called Awkward Elevator Ride for Rayna and Luke

Season 3 Episodes 14.  I found I had to write about their love and confusion making sure to add my favorite lines from Luke.  

Elevator Conversation:

Luke:   “yea the world keeps turning”

            “You enjoyed watching it all fall apart”

            “Bet you never looked back once”

You just walked away An elevator happening by chance Accidental meeting our old romance An unconcerned casual hello Said without much thought My old bedfellow Diamond and a wedding cake today Promises I didn't mean to break Leaving u alone Between the alter and a broken vow Loving two makes me so confused Choosing him and running away from you You said I never once looked back You didn’t see my heart turn ivory black then, (Chorus) Then you just walked away And then you say The world keeps turning But I’m still yearning Caught between two loves Leaving behind white wedding gloves When you walked away You didn’t let me say I’m sorry, so sorry In my delusional heart Watching it all fall apart But you don’t know My world has shifted Lost my senses Everything was thrown into the fire Our hearts a precious stone of sapphire So now I remain in my spinning world As our story becomes unfurled I hope you land safe On your way down don’t chafe Cause you know we’ll be alright Gravity in our lives Keeps us through this flight (Chorus) Then you just walked away And then you say The world keeps turning But I’m still yearning Caught between two loves Leaving behind white wedding gloves I became consumed With loving two Choosing him Loving you Still remains many broken pieces I confess I am the reason Oh Oh I wish I never met you Oh Oh I wish I never met him Oh Oh Yea I looked back Oh Oh with regrets Cause I landed Broken fragments (Margaret Franceschini 10/13/2016)
