This Could Have Been a Love Song

This song was written with a humourous spirit. ‘Tongue in Cheek”… sort of….

This Could Have Been a Love Song (2006-2014)

Well, this could have been a love song
But you and I we got it wrong
It’s clear to see it now in the light of day
And were those years a waste of time
When you and I were in our prime
And can we now get up and walk away.

But, there’s a black crow in the tree
looking down – scoldin’ me
He always seems to talk to me in tongues
But I don’t understand a word
and I don’t want to sound absurd
But isn’t love just wasted on the young.

Crows and trains are leavin’ town
In the dawn they’re the only sound
Hearts lie unclaimed along the way
And even though we know the end
the love song that it could have been
There’s nothing really left for us to say

But, my high flying friends
they have a lot to say
from the tops of trees
they always speak in tongues.
But I don’t understand a word
and I don’t want to sound absurd
But isn’t love just wasted on the young.

There’s a black crow in the tree
He’s a lookin’ down at me
He always seems to talk to me in tongues
But I don’t understand a word
and I don’t want to sound absurd
But isn’t love just wasted on the young
But isn’t love just wasted on the young.
