Once upon a time in a place
Far, far away from here
Long, long ago
Where your eyes drift past distorted lies
And dreamed of a love to make you feel more alive
Be worth any compromise
A love that would always keep you surprised
And prove to be worth a fight

No more days too long
Pretty love songs you hum as you drive along
The same subtle note
And then you came in to say what your face already told
You said, You’d found her and you would make her your bride
Stand by her until you died
Your tender eyes all glistened with pride
A smile so satisfied

    General Commenti do believe that they are.

    and i love the vivid details in this song. it almost tells a story to the listeners. maria taylor has a wonderful voice and if anybody deserves such a beautiful and talented person, it would be conor.

    General CommentYes probably for orenda & todd, especially orenda who had it rough with a broken home and a lot of heartbreak. I personally am pessimistic about marriage, I think most people are these days, but this song is beautiful... It reminds of the hope that there are people in real love who would work and fight for one another and make it work.
