I tried to exercise, for awhile
and I was eating right, for awhile
I gave up whiskey drink
and running wild
to be your everything
How we did smile
For awhile, for awhile, for awhile

The mask I wore so cleverly
My every step choreography
how we sang in harmony
for awhile ....

I stopped taking dares, for awhile
Went with you everywhere fro awhile
Always holding hands
your kind and gentle man
I hid just who I am
It was the perfect plan
For awhile.....

costumes worn on Halloween
They can't change what lies beneath
November comes
shines it s light on me
and all can see
but at least we danced happily
for awhile .....

is that johnny cash? keep working at it for a while and youll get it
