She looks at children like they're aliens
Like something strange she's never seen before,
As foreign as native Australians.
She squints and says hello like it's a chore.
And then the children run away and play
And I'm transported to another place
Another time a long, long way away,
When I walked by the lake and saw your face.
And you smiled at the other little ones
And I could see you longed to be a part
Of everything that I had in my life
And I could see that in your deepest heart
You dreamed, one day, that you would be my wife.
Sometimes relationships the world transcend,
And sometimes they just fall apart and end.
