SHORT STORIES

Met her on a Friday, my heart beat fast
Barely crossed my mind, was it gonna last
Then it hit me like a wave I never felt before
Rings, picket fences, and honey-do chores
By Monday I was gone, I can't deny
Staring down forever burned my eyes like the sun,
She can't be the only one, for me
Some love stories are just short stories

Damned if I was right, further up the road
A new girl, a new wave and new plateau
I promised we'd be married, in a month we were
She swore to me, I swore to her
A year later I was gone, I can't deny
Staring down forever burned my eyes like the sun
She can't be the only one, for me,
Some love stories are just short stories

Met her on a Tuesday, my heart beat fast
Now all I think about is if it's gonna last
When you've always been the first to cut and run
Just a frown can be a sign it's coming undone
Every day she's not gone I think I can fly
Staring down forever in her eyes, am I the one
Or just the guy she learns it from, unhappily
Some love stories are just short stories
