tear in my beer song lyrics, (attempt)

Come dream with me…
or is it just memory
of another time and another place
you will hear me say
it was a wonderful day
that I recall…when I remember your face…
 
We were full of luck
and love, starstruck
and never knew what tomorrow might bring
you were handsome, quite fair
life had nary a care
how we made each other’s hearts sing
 
Six years…of time
somehow we stepped out of rhyme
and you continued searching for what was already here
and the love was buried deep
under bitterness, to keep
pain from surfacing over the years
 
 
A friend saw you drinking
said you’d never stopped thinking
of what you left behind in the dust
she told you that I was fine
had aged like a good wine
except I never again learned how to trust
 
you said you were wrong
and that nights were so long
when memories  haunt you, memories of my smile
all the sweet days worth livin’
had already been given
to me, and now gone for quite a while
 
all I can say is "move on"
the time for "us" is gone
and never will return, it is the past 
"we" had our chance
"we" danced our dance
but the sweet music was never meant to last
 
so cry your tears
as I  cried for years
for a love that never knew its time
we can never return
to the scene of the burn
once we have stepped out of rhyme
 
you are to me
a sweet memory
that wraps its way to the sadness of our end
so cry your tears
and drink your beers
coz we ‘ain’t’ ever goin’ back there again
 
 
 
 

About Teresa Cypher

I came into the world a creator of stories. Having been born into a litter, the 7th of 8 children in a farming family, I've spent most of my life writing (escapism) stories in my head. My daydreams, as it turns out, are actually fiction in the making. From the time I was a little girl, I was a thinker, spending any time I could find to be alone--the bastion of undisturbed thoughts,--dreaming of other worlds and of fairy-tale love. My earliest influences were Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, Star Trek, and Star Wars. Yep... I write SFR. Science Fiction Romance. I live with my husband in a humble house in the middle of a tall stand of hardwoods, bordered by soybean and cornfields, in western Pennsylvania. Mother of three adult children, and "Grammie" to five beautiful grandchildren, I revel in family gatherings and celebrations. My husband and I care for our gardens at home--our little corner of heaven, take care of the dogs, the cats, and the chickens. We like to have a glass of wine at sunset and watch the stars come out.

    So true this is.  I was reminded of passions past that wanted back what they threw away.  I got as far as the one about decorating your tree but alas only part of the way through I\’ve run out of time.  I look forward to finishing it.
