    We traveled this road
    So many years ago

    “baby, It’ll get better
    I’ll be better.”

    I know
    I know

    But this mound of
    “please, forgive me”
    is weighing down on me
    …pulling at the heart strings
    ‘til sorrow pours out
    where joy should be

    “but baby…
    I’ll be good.”

    I know
    I know

    I’m hearing what you’re saying
    But “I love you”
    Isn’t the action you’re displaying
    YES,
    Your heart is good
    I know this is you
    But “I love you, so”
    Doesn’t really ring true

    “Please, baby, don’t leave”

    I’ve waited for years
    Now, filled with regret
    You promised happiness
    But what did I get

    The road has been long
    Now, my patience is short
    I should have walked away
    Right from the very start

    But I hung in there
    …tried to make it work
    Didn’t recognize the signs
    And say, “to hell with this skirt”

    After so many years
    Of disappointment
    And torment
    Now, I’m starting over
    {sigh}
    My life is content.

    thanks shyne...

    you know, we all make choices. if i was in the peach state, my choice would be you. but since we're miles and miles away, guess i'll just have to settle for someone less than the beautiful QUEEN you are.:)

    thanks for the read.
