'A Happy End'
Prompt: end or ending.
Thank you Corinne for your inspiring theme. Just the lyrics from me. It's about a person who thinks it's kind to promise something but then forgets about the promise as if it never happened. My lyrics are losely based on a true story when my then friend said to me that she knows many people who would be delighted to publish my music and that I will be having a difficult choice who to go with as there would be so many who would be interested. Our kids were in the same class and she was listening to my music and saying how much she liked it. This was 10 years ago. Of course nothing happened regarding publishing. I didn't break our friendship though, we just naturally went our separate ways when our kids went to different secondary schools. I can't say I was as angry as it comes through in the lyrics but it was an initial idea to use the empty promise for this skirmish prompt.
It will be great if someone feels inspired to create music, sing, play. Please let me know if you are interested. Thank you for reading and commenting.
A Happy End
Lyrics © 2019 Nadia Cripps
Why did you have to promise?
I didn't ask you to
You knew you couldn't do it, please be honest
You gave me hopes, look what you've put me through
I'm the one who has to do it now
You're nowhere seen, you've disappeared in a thin air
Perhaps you thought you were kind somehow
But your action is real wrong and it's unfair
I'm more cross with myself then ever
I should have sensed you couldn't be trusted, why did I believe you?
I don't know how to be clever
And see clearly who is who
Go on, enjoy your ride
One day you'll see no one will believe you
As for me, our friendship died
So don't come back, out of the blue
Goodbye forever my false friend
I wouldn't miss you, that's for sure
To lose you is a happy end
I've finally found my real cure
