Once upon a time
are the words that make me want to cry
Once upon a time
tells me it’s not happening any more

And well once upon a time you were everything to me
You were my dawn, my day, and my evening
I would wake up to the sound of you tripping over your messy floor
Spend the day wishing I could be with you more
And fall asleep to your super loud snores

I was little you were young
Living our separate lives
Then I grew up enough that we would fight
Little squabbles became hugs and kisses
Then it was your chance to grow
Your chance to know a little more
You took it as fast as you could
Ran out the door and didn’t look back no more

And well once upon a time you were everything to me
You were my dawn, my day, and my evening
I would wake up to the sound of you tripping over your messy floor
Spend the day wishing I could be with you more
And fall asleep to your super loud snores

Now your married thinking you’re all that
Got your dogs and your job
Living in a house that’s all yours
Don’t call anymore
Don’t care how I am
Called for the first time today
Mom woke me to see if I wanted to talk
Said “No way, no how. Why should I if he doesn’t care?”

And well once upon a time you were everything to me
You were my dawn, my day, and my evening
I would wake up to the sound of you tripping over your messy floor
Spend the day wishing I could be with you more
And fall asleep to your super loud snores

Now I waited to see if you’d call me
You didn’t and I’m not surprised
When I hear your name I want to cry
It used to be because I was sad
Now it’s because I’m mad
I want to scream and yell
Like I did when I was little
But you wouldn’t hear and it wouldn’t help

And well once upon a time you were everything to me
You were my dawn, my day, and my evening
I would wake up to the sound of you tripping over your messy floor
Spend the day wishing I could be with you more
And fall asleep to your super loud snores

So goodbye big brother
You’ve got your new life
Playing with your dogs
Spending time at work and with your wife
You don’t know what’s going on in my world anymore
And your life doesn’t include me as far as I’m concerned
We were getting far and I tried to call but you don’t know how to answer
Whenever you’re home you hang up

And well once upon a time you were everything to me
You were my dawn, my day, and my evening
I would wake up to the sound of you tripping over your messy floor
Spend the day wishing I could be with you more
And fall asleep to your super loud snores


Now you’re nothing to me
But a distant memory
