"Storybook Romance" as written by and Cassidy/henderson Catanzaro....
By that look in your eye
That subtle disdain
By that cross on your back
You carry in vain
I sense a deception
Truth was never told

Watch this fire at your feet
From standing on line
Blaze wild as it gently gets fanned
By the broad wing of time

A storybook romance
It ends in happy ever after
But as far as she's noticed there's just
Once upon a time

Don't cry
You choose what you sow
And what you reap

Wish it well
What you gave away
And bless what you keep

You made your own mind
It falls down on you
You're all caught up in love
And wishes that won't come true
In that bed that you made

    General CommentThis is a song about giving up on love.

    General CommentThe singer has had a very hard time on love. I picture this song as a view on love, and not so much as a total act of "throwing in the towel." The singer (let's call her Cassidy... lead singer of AR) had always chose to view love as a storybook. She always knew it as the sky as the limit. Now she just sees dead ends. Throughout the song, small hints are also given that she has had rough times in her love life...
