New songs

I don’t want to write,
These love songs any more.
Where heroes always win,
Live happily ever more,
And princesses get married,
In hand embroidered gowns,
Where people find true happiness,
In other people’s lives.

So the story goes,
True love will always win,
The villains will all die,
So that joy can ring again,
And in the trials there’s always hope,
There’s always a good end,
But life is just not like that,
For you or me, my friends.

So instead of these,
I wrote some truer line,
Where people do get hurt,
And lovers never meet.
Where everyone needs somebody,
But not everybody meets,
The one they’re meant to live with,
And life is not that sweet.

This is not the time,
For castles in the air.
The dragons are not real,
And the giants don’t exist.
Instead the true reality,
Within my simple lines,
Will be that life is harsh and cruel,
To anyone who loves.

I don’t want to write,
These love songs any more.
Where heroes always win,
Live happily ever more,
And princesses get married,
In hand embroidered gowns,
Where people find true happiness,
In other people’s lives.
