There Was A Time

Six senses detect tremors in the force
Rumbling through the night
And then a splash of light
Even men who date men say “Woe”

Hey Nicole
I hope you think your name sounds nice in my song
Hey Nicole

There was a time, there was a time
you said "true love babe" and I

Could not see but only stars
careening out my singing heart

There was a time, there was a time
you said "one kiss please" and I

Wondered if this could be love
and why so much
