Lyrics: 

Find The Good Times Again

V1
hanging by a wire
waiting for your call
straddling the fence
trying not to fall

finding ash not fire
seeking old flames’ heat
finding false pretense
now with each heart beat

PC1
this can’t be what we both need...
where have the
good times gone?

C
we don’t need to rewrite history
no, not for you
and not for me
we don’t need ambiguity
no, not for you
and not for me
we can’t dwell in uncertainty
year after year....

its time to its time to break free
and find the good times
find the good times
again

V2
walking on more eggshells
giving you your space
drowning in quicksand
trying to find my place

looking down empty wells
hoping to find more
roaming deserted lands
wanting tropical shores

PC2
this can’t be all that’s in store
where have the
good times gone?

C
we don’t need to rewrite history
no, not for you
and not for me
we don’t need ambiguity
no, not for you
and not for me
we can’t dwell in uncertainty
year after year....

its time to its time to break free
and find the good times
find the good times
again

B
we had our share of good times
yes, we had our share of them
we had our share of good times
but we can’t get them back again

C
we don’t need to rewrite history
no, not for you
and not for me
we don’t need ambiguity
no, not for you
and not for me
we can’t dwell in uncertainty
year after year....

its time to break free
and find the good times
find the good times
again

For me you've done a great job of describing the low points in the relationship. It isn't over, but it isn't going great, either. I like your metaphors, too. (Fire/Heat. Deserted land/tropical shores.) I think it was good of you to take the prompt out of the obvious choice. (And I, too, went sad.)

I love the rhyming of history, ambiguity, and uncertainty. That chorus speaks volumes. Relationships are hard and frustrating. I wonder what would happen if we just gave them up. They seem outdated in a way. Well, at least they do to me, but that's probably just my hippie heart talkin'. Smile

That is a sad one. Wasn't there an ancient form of poetry called a lament? This is indeed a lament.

Such a perfect description of a relationship. There are always highs and lows. You do this with such finesse

Yes, this is a fine lament, as mentioned above, and I also agree about all the fine metaphors you used, LIz. Why is it that all the best writes seem to be about love lost instead of love found... probably cause that's the pain that stays with us for so long.
Another gem!

Really like that chorus, excellent. The evocative feeling that the whole lyric evokes is very strong. Great skirmish write Smile
