Two Love Songs

(by Amanda Bland, copyright July 2011)

I fell in love with a lonely man

who traveled in a one-man band

that use to play a love song,

a blonde and blue-eyed love song

He followed someone else's dream

so willingly cause he believed

in writing his own love song

a true and loyal love song


His fidelity to me

felt too weak in the knees

So I left his 'good intentions' behind in New Orleans...Louisiana

His remaining pride was left for dead

On the side of the road without any bread

that he earned by playing love songs...

A foolish heart in time won't heal

from memories that make it feel

the pain of long-lost love songs

He WAS my one true love song
