"Once Upon a Time" as written by and Dan Fogelberg....
Every morning you wake up alone
And you shake up your soul
But nothing stirs
So you take the love of whoever
You please
But you can't find no reason
For giving yours.

'Cause, once upon a time
You held a love so strong and fine
That all the others simply don't compare
She's always on your mind
But once upon a time
You had her there.

Drive into town 'most every night
On the chance that there might be someone
Waiting for you
You tell yourself you'll
Give it your best
Maybe settle for less
But you never do.

'Cause, once upon a time
You held a love so strong and fine
That all the others simply don't compare
She's always on your mind
But once upon a time
You had her there.

Every morning you wake up alone
And you shake up your soul
But nothing stirs
So you take the love of whoever
You please
But you can't find no reason
For giving yours.

'Cause, once upon a time
You held a love so strong and fine
That all the others simply don't compare
She's always on your mind
But once upon a time
You had her there.
