I Bet You Were Right

remember how we used
to talk ’bout movies and love songs
and happily -ever- after?
you said romance is for the hopeless romantic, for the young,
the careless and the carefeee
I bet you were right,
you were right
‘cos at forty -five,
I’m the same; young,
careless, carefree,
hopeless romantic
still crazy in love with you

remember how we used
to talk ’bout our story
our love story,
you said it could be a beautiful plot
for an original movie storyline pitch
I bet you were right,
your were right
‘cos at forty – five
I still believe, ours is the best
love story ever
