Bonnie and Bobby made their way to the bar - They didn’t know of each other but they weren’t very far - From both having some drinks and eyes meeting over the jukebox - She said, “Hey boy can you play me a song?” - And so he put in a quarter and he went right along - She said, “How could you know Blackbird was just what I wanted?” - As the song spun, So did the room - As they hold hands all of the lights start to flicker - Playing it safe, He kissed her cheek - Does he still look at you the same way now? - Feel the same as 38 years ago and how? - So now that the numbered honeymoon days are through - She says to him “I’m so glad that all our feelings are still true - I can’t believe that you’re still acting the same like we first met” - He says, “Don’t you know that true love never dies?” - And then he put in “The Princess Bride” at parts where she cries - She says, “I’m glad that you know this is the way that I want it” - As the reel spins, So does the room - As their eyes meet all of the streetlights they flicker - Glancing outside, The moon shines bright for them - As the clock spins, So does the room - The days pass the same the promise is kept for a lifetime - So you can promise me that the feeling’s right - He won’t leave you all alone

    General CommentRemember Bonnie and Bobby made their way to the bar
    They didn’t know of each other, but they weren’t very far
    from both having some drinks and eyes meeting over the jukebox
    She said, “Hey boy can you play me a song?”
    So he put in a quarter and he went right along
    She said, “How could you know Blackbird was just what I wanted?”

    As the song spun, so did the room
    As they hold hands all of the lights start to flicker
    Playing it safe, he kissed her cheek

    Does he still look at you the same way now?
    Feel the same as 38 years ago and how?

    So, so, so now that these numbered honeymoon days are through
    She says to him, “I’m so glad that all our feelings are still true
    I can’t believe that you’re still acting the same like we first met”
    He says, “Don’t you know that true love never dies?”
    And then he put in “The Princess Bride” at parts where she cries
    She says, “I’m glad that you know this is the way that I want it”

    As the reel spins, so does the room
    As their eyes meet all of the streetlights they flicker
    Glancing outside, the moon shines bright for them

    Does he still look at you the same way now?
    Feel the same as 38 years ago and how?
    Does he still look at you the same way now?
    Feel the same as 38 years ago and how?

    As the clock spins, so does the room
    The days pass the same, the promise is kept for a lifetime
    As the clock spins, so does the room
    The days pass the same, the promise is kept for a lifetime
    (So you can promise me that the feeling’s right) [x3]
    So you can, yes you can, yes you can

    Does he still look at you the same way now?
    Feel the same as 38 years ago and how?
    Does he still look at you the same way now?
    Feel the same as 38 years ago and how?
    (He will leave you, he will leave you, he will leave you all alone) [x2]

    General Commenti don't care or not if you are sorry i just posted it the way it was written up on their site, which is how it was intended to be read anyway.

    General CommentThis song is just amazing. Houston calls are the soundtrack to the summer, pure and simple.

    The songs basically about true love. So simple, I smiled when I read these lyrics for the first time just then.
