  Keeper Of The Flame

Things That Matter The Most

Don't tell me about your pictures on your walls
Your "expensive hangings" lining your halls
Or your shopping sprees in the finest malls
Because it doesn't impress me at all.....


I would rather hear about the games you played
At your grandmother's house where you stayed
I want to know these things before they fade
I'll tell you my childhood, let's make a trade....


Yes I know you live in a palatial estate
There's caviar and such things on your plate
I am happy for you, all this is really great
But tell me instead about your first date....

I hope you are happy and your troubles are few
Moreso than how fast your bank account grew
You surely were the nicest girl I ever knew
My life is better from simply knowing you....
