Seeing You Clearly




**Somebody must have lied to me
I've denied all of what was meant to be

Across the miles, I thought you'd keep me sane
Chasing me through that cold Kentucky Rain

The little reflective glass of a tiny shard
The effort of not even going out a yard

Withered weather as Florida heat's cooled fair
I know now I'm the only one who will ever care

Somebody must have lied to me
I've depraved the toxic life meant to be

Black skies soon turning into gray
I remove the bad that comes my way

From dulling gray, to a brightening blue
I'll soon succumb to what is really true

I watch as the days lives and dies
And I know my soul will still arise

And through the cold Florida rain
You'll never see my bitten pain

**Somebody must have lied to me...A line from the Mamas and the Papas song:  "Once Was A Time I Thought"
Lyrics:
Once was a time I thought that love could be sold or bought
And everything found a place for me.
The fashion of passion I rationed with caution
Because of the notion the potion of passion
Had never been passed to me.
But since it was Sunday and sunny I went for a stroll.
But peanuts and pigeons and people put me in a hole.
A blessing refreshing in you did unfold,
Dispelling depressing distressing salt from my soul.
Once was a time I thought that love could be sold or bought
And everything found a place for me.
The fashion of passion I rationed with caution
Because of the notion the potion of passion
Had never been passed to me.
But now with you by my side,
I find that I feel so satisfied,
Somebody must have lied to me.
