Silly words

A time has come for the artist to step up to the keyboard
Tell a story worth a thousand lifetimes
A love that lasted for a summer, maybe
But was destroyed by the sickness of today

She was beautiful, walked on air
A little crazy, but she did not seem to care
He was the boy that everyone seemed to know
The nice one, simple, no complications
Attracted to the muse--they fell

And it came, full on
Fantasy, dream on

I will not write a million songs about the heartache
I will not write a million words about how he hurt her, no
I will not write a million songs about the heartache
I will just sing you a story about a girl who is learning life

Starry night, an effort to resurrect her dream
Create a symphony of stars
Thinking all was well, she laugh a little more
Then a story came forth...half truth

Surprised, suspicious, not wanting to believe
But surrender, promise forever, hold on with everything
Deception growing deeper, pain increasing always more
Never truly knowing where to go

And it came, full on
She cried, now he's gone, oh

I will not write a million songs about the heartache
I will not write a million words about how he broke her heart
I will not write a million songs about the hearache
I will just sing you a story about a girl who's learning life
She's learning life
Flying, learning life
