The True Story
By Bobby Russ (2000)

Once upon a time...
Isnít that the way it starts?
Isnít this supposed to rhyme?
Touching the hearts?

Why?  Does anyone ever ask?
Does anyone still care?
Or are we not to ask?
Isnít it all fair?

I wonder why we stare
Do we know something?
We do care
About someone or something

Things do change
I have often wondered why
Time has us change
It has left me to cry

But I donít always cry
I am many times happy
Some may ask why
I am cause you are happy

I still hold true
My words Iíll always mean
Hoping youíll never be blue
And happiness always glean.
