A FAIRY TALE FANTASTY

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

He took my wife
like a  villian
in a fairy tale
fantasy

like a black knight
on a stallion
he stole my love
from me

but I swore that I would
fight him for
the lover that I lost
like a white knight
on a quest
I’d pay any cost

I’d cross every hill and valley
slaying dragons in my way
and we’d fight an epic battle
where I’d win her back someday

and as the morning,
slowly woke me
lying here next to you
I had to laugh
and thank the Lord
that my nightmare
didn’t come true

I never would’ve found you
if he hadn’t stolen
my old wife away
I never would’ve found,
the love I’ve always longed for
if she hadn’t run away

some things turn out
better than planned
if you just stay outta the way
a new love is waiting to find you
if you just let the past slip away

I never would’ve found you
if I hadn’t been lonely
if I hadn’t been finally free
free of the dreams
and the fairy tale endings
endings that aren’t meant for me

and you never would’ve found me
if you hadn’t been looking,
looking for love just like me
and I’m glad that our story
of love turned out better
than any

fairy tale fantasy
