The Ballad of Katie and Kevin
They met in prime time; they fell in love fast.
Then it crashed and burned; it was too hot to last.
He got married; she left town.
But she came back by; on Life’s Merry-Go-Round.
He wanted a baby; she was all career.
They gave it a try; but they couldn’t go there.
She got a promotion; he left town.
But he came back by; on Life’s Merry-Go-Round.
They talk, they text; they e-mail.
Love’s not gone, ’til you look away.
Hold onto the memories, hold onto the magic.
Taste the sweetness of that other day.
There’s a window in time, or is it a door?
You can walk right through, to the place you were before.
