    In the movies there’s always a happy ending
    to a tragic story and the good guy always gets his girl
    In real life things don’t always end that way
    all kinds of situations and circumstances
    Seem to come to play

    It would be wonderful
    if we never made each other cry
    Never told each other lies
    never betrayed each others trust
    Never gave in to physical lust

    Real life is not like the fairytales
    Where there’s always a happily ever after
    If only I could guarantee
    we would always be together
    If only I could guarantee
    our love will last forever

    I know I can’t predict
    what tomorrow may bring
    But I was just thinking

    ~TODAY~

    Would be a good place to start
    I’ve lost so much time living in yesterday
    That I tend to ruin my tomorrow
    Tear down my next week and
    Assassinate my next month
    Because I’m so caught up in
    Past transgressions that are so far out of my reach

    I’m done with picking up the pieces
    and trying to put them back together
    like a jigsaw puzzle, they seem to never fit

    I rather concentrate on

    ~TODAY ~

    Because its a new beginning
    With no bumps and no dents
    No need to recycle and reuse
    Yesterdays problems, sorrows, and blues

    If we walked away from it we didn’t want it or needed
    My daddy always use to tell me
    Just because that car looks good
    on the outside doesn’t mean its worth keeping
    If you don’t want it to put you down later on
    You gotta know how to treat it

    ~TODAY~

    I’m going to make you anticipate tomorrow
    Beg for next week
    Count down the days til next month
    like a child counting down the days
    to open the presents under the Christmas Tree

    ~TODAY~

    Will be filled with all of your wants desires and needs

    ~TODAY~

    Pleasing you will be my #1 priority like I need air to breathe

    ~TODAY~

    Will be like no other day your eyes have ever seen

    ~TODAY~

    You will truly understand what I mean when I say you are my

    ~KING~​
