Adios Romeo

© 2016 Pierce Turner from the album Love Can’t Always Be Articulate
It may not be wise or even what I believe
But I’ve found a way to be reasonably pleased

Adios Romeo
Take your sun and your sorrow
Adios Romeo
Say hello to tomorrow
Keep going forward do the best that you can
Keep going forward and don’t look back

Spanish Denise from the Bronx comes to mind
She may have been a virgin
She wasn’t my kind
Everybody’s covet
She knew it and she loved it
But merely my adventure
Instead of God’s design for her
So funny so sad so true
So true so funny so sad

Keep going forward do the best that you can
Keep going forward and don’t look back

Susan from the village
She liked white boys
I wanted to explore her
She made a poor choice
She took me to a play
While her mother was away
I swam through her eyes
There were no goodbyes though
So sad so funny so true
So true so funny so sad

Keep going forward do the best that you can
Keep going forward and don’t look back

And then one day my heart got caught in a slammed shut door
My mind got dragged through the broken pasts
So never no-more

Adios Romeo
Keep your sun and your sorrow
Adios Romeo
Say hello to tomorrow
Keep going forward and don’t look back
Keep going forward
Do the best that you can
