True Story

By
I tried again but couldn't find the words today
Not a single lyric graced my lips that said all that I want to say
And sadly I see that three words don't make a melody
Yet still I feel they fit so intrinsically

If I could make the keys say one simple thing,
Sing the simple joys that you do bring
Your voice, you're everything.
If a song could speak, if a bond could hold,
I'd bet on yours and mine and ours alone
If only I could fit "I love you" into this poem

I don't think that there's much that I could rhyme it with
There are no words to describe it with,
Just songs and memories
Yet the cliché of a single kiss, plus a melody and a keyboard riff
Could sum it up, 'cause music is the only way

If I could make the keys say one simple thing,
Sing the simple joys that you do bring
Your voice, you're everything.
If a song could speak, if a bond could hold,
I'd bet on yours and mine and ours alone
If only I could fit "I love you" into this poem...

I don't think that I believe in luck these days since you told me
That you'd been waiting your whole life to find me
It's fate, I say

And I've found a way to make the keys sing
My heartstrings scream your name,
You're everything.
And the song speaks, it says our bond will hold
I can trust all that the music shows
It says I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, and you alone...
I love you
And you alone.
