LIGHT: TRUE LOVE

This was a song I wrote in or around 2008. It’s titled “True Love”.

TRUE LOVE

(VERSE 1)
Jimmy walks and Judy talks
He’s got the body, she’s got the brains
Such congruent personalities
But with real life, real pain

Jimmy’s broke and Judy’s ill
How they gonna pay the doctor bill?
Judy kisses Jimmy and he hears her say,
“Darling, it’s alright. It’ll be OK.”

(CHORUS)
True love true love
They’ve discovered the real thing
True love true love
First a choice, then a feeling

(VERSE 2)
Taking back missed opportunities
To say the things that they could have said
Like “I love you” “Thank you” “You’re beautiful”. “I’m so proud of you”
“You’re so good in bed”
The roof is leaking
The bank is seeking
The children are crying
And Judy’s dying
They say God, we place our faith in You
And believe your universe will come through

(CHORUS)
True love true love
They’ve discovered the real thing
True love true love
First a choice, then a feeling

(VERSE 3)
Flash forward twenty years and take a look at this
Judy is well, Jimmy’s life-long bliss
They’re in the empty nest, the kids are grown
And each have babies of their own
Living in retirement they often play
Yet always there’s the day-by-day
“What’s for dinner?” “Call the plumber”. “Call me when you get there” “My money, your money, the money we share”

(CHORUS)
True love true love
They’ve discovered the real thing
True love true love
First a choice, then a feeling

(OUTRO)
Mmm. Summer lemonade
“Mow the lawn first.” “Does this shirt go with these pants?” “Put the toilet seat down.”
