Songs About You

Have I ever told you about Lucy,
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes.
She could ruin your faith,
With her casual lies.

She had a smile, that it seems to me,
Reminds me of childhood memories.
I remember how I found her there,
Alone in her electric chair.

She took more than her share,
Had me fighting for air.
Untilย I was blinded by the light,
Cut loose like a deuce, another runner in the night.

They say you found somebody new,
But that won’t stop my loving you.
After all the songs we’ve shared together,
Some things can’t be forgotten.
