Pining for what used to be

Lyrics Make The Song Contest Winner 
NARRATOR (SPOKEN): He walks up to the bar. His drink in his hand. Slowly, he looks into the face of the radiant woman and asks

HIM (SPOKEN): Do you ever miss me

HER (SPOKEN): Sometimes


Sometimes, I remember the way it used to be
Back in the days when you still loved me
Long before you broke my heart in two
Tore it to pieces when you said we were through

NARRATOR (SPOKEN): She tears at the label on the bottle in her hand and wonders

HER (SPOKEN): Am I just a memory

HIM (SPOKEN): Sometimes


Then, I recall the gentleness of your sweet touch
How holding you made me feel so much
The taste of your kiss. The look in your eye
How could I have ever told you goodbye

NARRATOR (SPOKEN): Then he asks the question they both want to know

HIM (SPOKEN): Do you think there's a chance

HER (SPOKEN): Sometimes


But, this is the way that it must always remain
Losing you has brought me too much pain
We can't go back, undo what has been done
Still, I wish there was a way we could share one

(pause) sometimes


How I wish we could share just one

(pause) sometimes

Practicing my first love in writing - Country music song lyrics.

This song is not about them sharing a drink. It has nothing to do with that at all.

It also seems a couple readers have misconstrued the meaning of these lyrics. They are not about Willie Nelson and Trigger.

The key to the meaning of the lyrics is in the repeated word "sometimes". So, if you are having a hard time understanding these lyrics, read them in that context.

Willie and Trigger, by MKFlood, selected to complement my lyrics.

So, thanks MKFlood, for the use of your picture. It goes so nicely with my lyrics.


For those of you who may not know, Willie is of course the one and only incomparable Willie Nelson.

Trigger is the guitar he has played his whole musical career which spans more than 60 years. Trigger has been strummed so much by Willie there is a hole worn in the wood of the guitar.

Regardless of Trigger's condition, and because he treasures the quality sound Trigger makes, Willie absolutely refuses to play any other guitar.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
