The True Story
By Bobby Russ (2000)

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

Why?  Does anyone ever ask?
Does anyone still care?
Or are we not to ask?
Isn�t 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 don�t always cry
I am many times happy
Some may ask why
I am cause you are happy

I still hold true
My words I�ll always mean
Hoping you�ll never be blue
And happiness always glean.
