Once, Twice, Three times a lady

29 February, 2012 (12:00) | Wax Poetic

the first time we danced,

we both were romanced.

oh, the future we could have.

And when I told you,

“Darling, I love you”

That’s the first time it went bad.

 

It was too much, too soon.

I claim insanity under the moon.

How I long for just another chance.

 

But you’re once, twice, three times a lady and I’m sorry it ended that way.

 

The next time we met,

I was filled with regret,

But I held back words with a smile.

At lunch we talked,

And after, we walked.

That’s when I reached out for your hand.

 

You wanted to run,

I was crazed by the sun,

How I long for just another chance.

 

But you’re once, twice, three times a lady and I’m sorry it ended that way.

 

Years later it came,

we huddled in the rain.

My, how beautiful you were.

Puddles of love

Poured down around us,

And I knew just what to say.

 

You’re in my heart and my head,

But I wrote this song instead,

oh, how I’d love to pursue.

Your life is fine

but as for mine,

I’ll get by without if you choose.

 

You’re once, twice, three times a lady, and I’m sorry it ended this way.

Once, twice, three times a lady, and I’m yours when you want it that way.
