Thru the grape vine

You took my heart
and promised you'll be right back
but baby I'm still sittin' here
waitin' for you
just wishin' that phone would ring

Months have gone by
and I'm still waitin'
and baby through the grape vine I heard
you went all the way to Cali
and met some bleach blonde beauty

So now I'm no longer sittin'
and I'm going to have myself a good time
and forget all my wasted memories
I'm goin' to go down to the
South Carolina shore and do all the things I've always
dreamed of doin'

Months have gone by
and baby through all my fun times
I still remember what I heard thru the grape vine
you went down to Cali
and met some bleach blonde beauty

I cant help but think
does she treat you right
or has she left you hangin' high
my life has been so much better
but I know where my heart is now

Months have gone by
and baby through all my days
I still remember what I heard through the grape vine
you went down to Cali
and met some bleach blonde beauty

Those words don't hit me hard anymore
till you showed up on my front porch step
beggin' and pleadin' for forgiveness
hopin' I'll take you back
but not this time baby
cause as you see I am with some other guy

Months have gone by
and baby even though I'm wearin' his ring
I still remember what I through the grape vine
you went down to cali
and met some bleach blonde beauty

thru the grape vine
my heart was broken
so baby this is goodbye.

From a family experience - I could totally relate to this. It would make a good song!

I like it. Its expressing feelings and telling a story through a poem.
