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 live with my husband in a humble house in the middle of a tall stand of hardwoods, bordered by soybean and corn fields, in western Pennsylvania. Mother of three adult children and "Grammie" to one sweet little girl, I revel in family gatherings and celebrations. My husband and I care for the gardens on our property--our little corner of heaven, have a glass of wine at sunset, and like to watch the stars come out. Currently working in QC and Development for a Bio-technology Company that produces green, agricultural products. 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 have spent most of my life trying to be an individual. My dreams took me there. 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 mind never shut off-- through the years when thoughts allowed me to escape the everyday world of farm life, to the daydreams while I was raising children and being the cook, the baker, the candlestick maker,and the taxi driver-- all while working full time. It took until middle age for me to realize that my meandering mind was writing stories! Once I sat down and started typing, it took 2 months to write my first book. My biggest challenge at first was getting my fingers to type fast enough to keep up with my mind. My daughter bought me a small digital recorder so I could save my thoughts until my fingers could catch up. The story that I wrote, Across The Night Sky ,was years in the making, and timed well...after I had experienced real life and the joys and heartaches it brings. I think that time gave me a well-spring of experiences from which to merge fairy-tale love with the cynicism adult life creates--while never losing sight of the beautiful and wonderful that love is. Writing is my passion...this incredible discovery in mid life that often keeps me up till the wee hours of the morning. I am so very fortunate to have the opportunity to devote my time to something that brings me such joy.

    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.
