Once Upon A Time†††††††††† (turn up your speakers & click on the song title)

©1997 James A. Graves, Jr.

 

My life is filled with memories, vivid images of things,

That didnít seem important at the time.

But now these endless empty days,

Take their toll and have their way,

Of reminding me that once upon a time...

 

Once upon a time I was not lonely,

Once upon a time you were mine,

And I thought time would always be on my side,

How could I know that I would lose you once upon on a time.††

 

Now summers go, but winter stays,

And I know Iíll face darker days,

But I just canít imagine what theyíll be.

So I think back to better days,

Of loving you and your loving ways,

And dream about the things Iíll never see...

 

Like holding you while youíre sleeping,

And makiní love deep in the night.

Like holding hands and walkiní, just passiní the time,

Things I had planned on doing once upon a time.

 

Once upon a time you said you loved me,

Once upon a time you were mine,

And I thought time would always be on my side,

How could I know that I would lose you once upon a time,

How could I know that I would lose you, once upon a time.
