Wouldn't It Be Wonderful

(From 2009 cd ASCEND - words & music by Laurie McClain)
Cinderella lived happily ever after
Juliet died a child
I'm in the middle of my life
my heart's still running wild
I've been trying to exorcise these romantic delusions
I keep coming back to the same conclusion

wouldn't it be wonderful
to find a love so true
we'd always want to be together
with smiling eyes
no fears no lies
in each minute we'd find forever
oh wouldn't it be wonderful

was it the images they presented
or the ones that I invented
fooled me into thinking
I’d found the one
and each time oh I really believed
until the truth set me free

wouldn't it be wonderful
to find a love so true
we'd always want to be together
with smiling eyes
no fears no lies
in each minute we'd find forever
wouldn't it be wonderful

I been chasing this old fairy tale dream
Since I was a young girl
If life’s eternal
I guess I don’t have to meet
my soulmate in this world, but

wouldn't it be wonderful
we'd always want to be together
with smiling eyes no fears no lies
in each minute we'd find forever
wouldn't it be wonderful
wouldn't it be wonderful
wouldn't it be wonderful
