You say you are an open book
But I’ve read a book or two.
And I recognize that smile of yours
Though you pretend that it’s brand new.
I recognize that excited laughter
And that light that’s in your eyes
Though you try to cover it all up
With deception and with rhyme.
And I recognize that warm embrace
And those erotic whispers
For read a tale just like this once
And it left my heart aquiver
I recognize your injured heart
And the pain that we both share
Because I read a story once upon a time
That was more than I could bear.
And I recognize your brilliant soul
Though I know you might not believe it
Because I’ve read it in a million tales
But with endings, oh, so different
