Liner Notes: 

Another song in G

Lyrics: 

No, I never
Thought I would see the day
When you would walk away
Walk away from me

And forever
It didn't last as long
As a country song
I think you'd agree

Life isn't like a fairy tale
But it isn't supposed to end up like this
This ain't the way it's supposed to be
This ain't the way it's supposed to be

Someday
Some day will never come
Guess we were too damn young
We didn't believe

You slipped away
I guess I let you go
I was too dumb to know
You are all that I need

Life isn't like a fairy tale
But it isn't supposed to end up like this
This ain't the way it's supposed to be
This ain't the way it's supposed to be

Life isn't like a fairy tale
But it isn't supposed to end up like this
This ain't the way it's supposed to be
This ain't the way it's supposed to be

This is a very good country song and it has a very beautiful melody I love the rockier edge on the chorus and the bittersweet feeling over all

I like it, TC. I know I've said this before, but whenever I hear you sing I'm reminded of the Guess Who.
Anyway, this comes across beautifully in all its simplicity and straightforward lyrics. One to be proud of!

"Forever didn't last as long as a country song" is a great line. Sweet, poignant song. Nicely done.

I'm with Helen on the 'last as long as country song' Line. Dang it, I wish I wrote that! Smile Really like all the lyrics here. It's a great story. "Life isn't like a fairy tale/But it isn't supposed to end up like this" Come on. That's gold!

Excellent guitar as always.
Appealing chords and feel.
Nice melody during the verses.
Again, that guitar continues to stand out for my ears due to the actual sound of it and the little bends you incorporate.
Taking a second listen, these are also excellent lyrics.

This dives deep into my heart with the honest open feeling lyric. Fantastic chorus. Love your pacing in this and the little slides and lifts in your vocals. So effective.
