The Story

by Jason Silver (played 9 times)


Lyrics

Once upon a time in a land so far away
Lived a happy man, yeah that's what they used to say
Had a pleasant life full of hope, and happy days;
That's the way the story was supposed to be.

Fairy tale love, just two kids, a wedding day
I close my heavy eyes and I dream of yesterday
But Goldilocks has broken; all my life's in disarray
Is that the way the story was supposed to be?

Once upon a time
Love was so sublime
Like a nursery rhyme
That's the way the story was supposed to be.
That's the way the story was supposed to be.

Think of Jacky Horner who pulled out a plum
As I wait on the highway and I'm holding out my thumb
Too bad I can say that it's the man that I've become
It's not the way the story was supposed to be

Feeling quite contrary all about this whole affair
Cause Mary's lost her sheep and see now my cupboard's bare
Times I live in peace; they have become all too rare.
It's not the way the story was supposed to be.
