Once upon a time?

Once upon a time I was here

or was I there

that's when I seen him, 

my story teller,

the one who would write and direct this movie I live in


Once upon a time he was sweet

like that iced tea your mom makes on a nice summer day

but now he's sour like that homemade lemonade that sat too long

he's beautiful like the sunset

and cold like the desert nights


Once upon a time he was there for me

but now he left

because I was right

or was I wrong

I apologized, but it wasn't enough

I was too much


So once upon a time we were together forever

Once upon a time I was perfect and so was he

Once upon a time we got married and had children

Once upon a time...

if there ever was a time we lived happily ever after.
