The 3 boys I loved

(and the 1 that I didn't)

.

Once upon a time I fell in love

He was confident and I was unsure

Why not take a chance

Learn what love is all about

He took what I gave him

Smashed my heart to pieces

Left me lying on the floor

. .

Once upon a time I fell in love

I was confident and he was unsure

It doesn't matter though

When we're together the world is our stage

Send me soaring to new heights

But now I've learned to fly

I'm sorry, but I can't come back down

. .

Once upon a time I thought I fell in love

He was confident and I was confident

We come together like waves upon the rocky shore

Immovable object meets the Irresistible force

I am the irresistible force

Then I am the ocean, indomitable and vast

I can't linger here to watch as you slowly crumble

. .

Once upon a time, I thought love was lost to me

For if I am the ocean, indomitable and vast

There is nothing that can withstand my might

Am I destined to always be unmatched?

But then I found something new-

For if I am the ocean then you are the sky

Wide, ever reaching, endless and clear

. .

And then I learned what love is

So different than what I thought I had known

Not simply giving your heart away

Not how high you can fly

Not how strongly you clash

Rather, all of it together… and more

Once upon a time, I finally fell in love

.


.

Once upon a time, love came to me

With you as the sky and me as the sea

.

But how can I know that this love is real

That it is not something people can make up or steal

.

How do I know if these feelings will stay

And not be something that will change or go away

.

Because if I am the ocean, deep wide and blue

Then you are the sky, bright vast and true

.

Together we are rain, storms, clouds, or snow

Delicate mist or a crystal rainbow

.

An endless cycle of which neither can top

An unstoppable force which time cannot stop

.

And so once upon a time, this love came to be

With you as the sky and me as the sea
