What to Expect When You’re Unsuspecting
Skirmish prompt from @Donna Devine was “UNEXPECTED”
Disclaimer: I spent about 4 hours on this, so it’s not a skirmish-timed effort.
The title I used is a little too frivolous for the topic but I couldn’t resist the word play on the title of that classic pregnancy guidebook once it occurred to me.
This song is not about pregnancy. It’s about broken trust, and how that goes. But it is in response to the title.
I was in the mood to go beyond girl-with-guitar, so I took extra time to play with some GarageBand embellishments.
It will be a long drop
A free fall
You won’t even understand
The meaning of it all
You won’t believe it’s real
It’s not how things were s’posed to feel
It never crossed your mind
And so you walked into it blind
When life is unkind
To the unsuspecting
The best way to heal
Is to be self-respecting
It will be a hard year
Of rough days
It’s hard to get your bearings back
When trust has been betrayed
You’ll lose your faith in love
Then try somehow to rise above
Is there nothing you can count on
You really thought you’d found the one
Mourning your innocence
Missing those ways
New strength comes in waves
You contemplate a second chance
A new start
You’d risk it all to try to mend
What’s left of your broken heart
And when it falls apart again
You know it’s time to lean on friends
And now it never leaves your mind
How someone could be twice unkind
