    Once upon a time
    my heart fell in love
    and it wasn’t ordinary
    everyday, simple love

    It was the need you,
    want you, can’t be without
    you kind of love

    I would smile for hours
    so thankful that I found you
    So sure and so positive you
    were exactly where I was meant to be

    And I couldn’t imagine
    that a day or time would ever
    come and change everything
    about our life and love
    But it did

    Years and time, trials and troubles
    have taken us on a rollercoaster
    that sometimes didn’t seem to end
    and before we knew it our hearts were tired

    So tired and worn out from all we had seen,
    all we had been through and all we’d experienced
    and love somehow turned into comfort
    the comfort of knowing someone was there

    But those feelings of excitement
    and passion somehow faded along the way
    and now we’re left wondering just
    where it all went

    I believe we can find love again
    because love is where it all began
    and once upon a time
    you were all my dreams come true
    But now...

    Feel broken down, my body aches
    My heart it bleeds from past mistakes
    Can't stop the tears, they fall like rain
    The words are spinning 'round my brain
    So scared and feeling so alone
    The coldness fills my every bone
    No food, no sleep, can't think at all
    Each way I turn, another wall
    This darkness haunts my very soul
    My world seems dead I've lost control
    The only weapon is my pen
    For I will not let depression move in again.

    I believe we can find love again
    because love is where it all began
    and once upon a time
    you were all my dreams come true
