A song about a story

I wrote a song about a story about a story about a song
Three minutes thirteen seconds
So, it wasn’t quite that long
Filled with love and disappointments
All the things a good song needs
I wrote a song about a story about a story about a song

They said “write something simple”
I said “I’ll see what I can do”
They told me “you can do it”
“you’re the best at what you do”

I needed something with emotion
Something new and something hot
I wrote for fourteen hours
And this is what I got

I wrote a song about a story about a story about a song
Three minutes thirteen seconds
So, it wasn’t quite that long
Filled with love and disappointments
All the things a good song needs
I wrote a song about a story about a story about a song

It was a little love song
You know…people could relate
I played it to the band
They said “Man, this song is great”

It’s a little bit of Shakespeare
With some Poe there on the side
The song was full of highs and lows
It would take you for a ride

I wrote a song about a story about a story about a song
Three minutes thirteen seconds
So, it wasn’t quite that long
Filled with love and disappointments
All the things a good song needs
I wrote a song about a story about a story about a song

In the end when it was finished
It charted, not for long
Then I realized the story here
Was the story ’bout the song

So, I wrote a song about a story about a story about a song
Three minutes thirteen seconds
So, it wasn’t quite that long
Filled with love and disappointments
All the things a good song needs
I wrote a song about a story about a story about a song
