I’ve got your once upon a time

But not your happily ever after

That lies dead ten feet behind me

I claim I found it that way

But I’m sure it’s my fault

At least in part

Because I knew, have always known

It never had a chance

Not with me holding its hand

Nothing beautiful ever does

Blame me if you want

But I did try, I did love you

In my own special way

But I’m sure it makes no difference

Not on a day like this

Your sun glistening

Through the rear view mirror

As I drive away
