Baby I won’t lie..
Life gets hard,
& some mornings you’ll wish to be anywhere but where you are,
Some nights you’ll wish upon an empty star,
Other nights your mind will drift as time shifts,
For no apparent reason you’ll think about the times you’ve missed,
The lingering bruises in your soul that have yet to be kissed,
Some mornings you’ll wake up with a list,
of memories you thought you had long dismissed,
& the ones you wish you could remember..
will turn out to be like a fleeing shiver on a cold night in December,
I won’t lie baby…
You’ll have plenty of smiles,
Moments that’ll make you forget about life’s misfortunes & trials,
You’ll lose yourself to dances that will last forever even if they only existed for a while,
But some nights your mind will drift.. & you’ll need a number to dial,
Keep my name somewhere in the basement of your heart.. you’ll find me in a dusty, faded file.
