Too bad So Sad


I am so sad, I can hardly smile
She found me after fourteen years
She said, “It’s been a while”
I thought I had found my girl again
Or rather, she found me
Married she is
But a separation to be
A flame rekindled
And great laughs we shared
One night of blissfulness
For this woman, I dearly care
But…she doesn’t belong to me
A husband unfaithful
Her trust has been torn
A friend in me she wants
And maybe something more
My feelings are high
But expectations are low
A situation at hand
I must take it nice and slow
But…she doesn’t belong to me
Set my self up for heartache
That’s what I’ve done
Put my feelings in front of me
They’re now on the run
Gonna take some time to find em’ again
Because I put them where they don’t belong
Maybe one day she’ll see
How much I care for her
How true I will be
But til that day comes
She doesn’t belong to me Mike Farris Jr. 1/09/09
