Back Together

A few months ago, I completed an on-line songwriting course. The last course assignment involved doing final edits on a song I had written for an earlier assignment. My tune was a little weird, and my performance of the song was far short of professional standards. You’ll therefore find no audio here. I thought I should post the lyrics of my song, however, and you can read it below. In case the thought occurs to any readers, I need to say that this song is in no way autobiographical.

Back Together
by Lionel Deimel

I don’t know why I strayed from you;
I didn’t seek a love affair;
She gave her warmth and gave me hope;
I don’t know why I felt despair.

Can you and I get back together?
I hope we can.

I didn’t know you had betrayed
The love that you and I once shared;
Perhaps I knew things were not right,
Yet cheating caught me unprepared.

Can you and I get back together?
I hope we can.

That Mary had a knowing look
I took to be a sign of grace;
I didn’t know—could not believe—
You, too, had been in her embrace.

Can you and I get back together?
I hope we can.
I really, truly hope we can.
