When you wish upon a star

Two teenagers, unknown to each
Each wishing on a star
She, for eternal love
Him, a brand new car
They never knew their paths would cross
And their wishes they would get
She found her love, and him…a car
Don’t leave…there’s more here yet….

College years and future dreams
Still to come, with who?
Two teenagers growing up alone
I know what’s next…do you?
He bought his car with money earned
From working hard at night
While she still waited for her love
Do you think they’ll meet…..they might!!

When you wish upon a star
Remember which you picked
For now, you may get what you want
But, in the end….be tricked

Their paths did cross while he was out
He saw her walking in the rain
He couldn’t stop to help her out
But he had to get her name
He did his run and went on back
Hoping she was still en route
She was soaked right through as he drove up
So, a dry ride home was moot

He took her home and she dried off
He sat waiting with a drink
She got all changed and then came out
He was not sure what to think
A t-shirt and her housecoat
Was all that she had on
She was sending him a message
He thought it time that he was gone

When you wish upon a star
Remember which you picked
For now, you may get what you want
But, in the end….be tricked

They dated from that night until
They decided they should wed
They were both near graduation
And they knew where they should head
They married and had children
They were perfect in every way
Imagine all this from a star
You wouldn’t get all this today

As time went by, like it always does
They realized that their dreams
Were not the one’s they used to share
They were ripping at the seams
The kids were always fighting
And I guess, they were too
Her dream of finding eternal love
I guess, had fallen through

When you wish upon a star
Remember which you picked
For now, you may get what you want
But, in the end….be tricked

They now slept in separate bedrooms
The kids were out and off to school
No matter what the weather
The house was always cool
They never spent a moment
Together anymore
The only sex, was a quick “fuck you”
As they passed on through the door

His car was dead and buried
With their marriage close behind
She’d wished upon a shooting star
And didn’t like what she did find
Your dreams are what you make them
A star has a shelf life…don’t forget
Before you wish upon one
Beware of what you’ll get

When you wish upon a star
Remember which you picked
For now, you may get what you want
But, in the end….be tricked
