Lost Alamos: Music

A Story Told

(Lost Alamos)
© Brian Daniell 2010 ASCAP

It's a love song--unusual for me--and it's a real one.  And that's all I'm sayin'. 

 

In the night he reached across their bed

Hold me close, I’m scared, he said

Life is hard, not sure I’m ahead

And I may have to choose . . .

 

She drew him close and kissed his head

You are loved, is all she said

And from then he knew instead

That he could never lose      

 

It’s a story told a thousand times

A thousand ways, a thousand rhymes

Melt away the hurt and crimes

With the love of two

It’s the story we know from the heart

And we know it right from the start

We know our lines, we know our parts

And so we say it’s for you--This story is for you

 

In the night they reach across their bed

Holding close, no words be said

For their hearts are gently led

By their story of love

 

Let them linger for a while

Warm the dark with a knowing smile

Send it flying ‘cross the miles

Sing their story of love

 

It’s a story told a thousand times

A thousand ways, a thousand rhymes

Melt away the hurt and crimes

With the love of two

It’s the story we know from the heart

And we know it right from the start

We know our lines, we know our parts

And so we say it’s for you--This story is for you
