new to the forum. this is a folk song.

she carries herself well
seeing but never speaking
sifting instants like sand
holding out for a diamond
she always kept herself a secret
a storybook to be written
so he filled you up with words
and peeled away your innocence
when she speaks it comes in echoes
a solemn string of syllables
and in one wrinkled hand
she holds his picture like a bible
regrets what she cant change
wont forget what she can't replace
she set one love in her heart
that just wouldn't be erased
you say you didn't see it coming
but you're just lying through your teeth
you know every good thing is all too brief
why did you think love would be easy

you used to have blue eyes
they were the bright
bright bright bright
color of the sky
but now that sky's all grey
and it's rained every day
since the sun went away
and the moon took it's place
regrets what she cant change
forgets what she can't replace
she set one love in her heart
that just wouldn't be erased
you say you didn't see it coming
but you're just lying through your teeth
you know every good thing is all too brief
why did you think love would be easy
