I've Lived This Life A Thousand Times

Updated on July 18, 2011

I’ve lived this life a thousand times

I’ve seen your face

I’ve shaken hands with my prince charming in party lines

I’ve liken you to silky sheets

I’ve reached for you in the ghostly night


I’ve touched the shoulder of who I thought were you

The poundings of my heart I could hear in my ear

To my surprise it was just another stranger’s face


I’ve lived this life a thousand times

I wandered through the crowd in my mind trying to search you out

I heard music, I saw dance

A little mingle by chance just to get to know you


I wished for the rain on that night

That kind of rain that would taste like you

Oh that night,

The night your sweet sweat stained my pillow

That night you left me longing for more


I’ve lived this life a thousand times

My prince charming just might have been you…….

I wanted nothing of heart to do with this again

I’m not speaking of love my dear friend

Love has just been a blanket in the wind


You see my friend ….

I’ve lived this life a thousand times

Longing and wishing to see you;

And there you were right before my face a charming prince indeed.

Than again I've lived this life a thousand times and know that this prince

will never be mine

    Hello Alladream77,Solemn to the point...I stood in that place to many times.To wonder and not to try.No sadness because I knew he was a prince but not mine,Because I had my prince charming.Every stranger makes you wonder.

    Thanks for your comment:)

    Peace!
