Whatever Happened to True Love
© 1998 by Janis Carper

You pulled her picture from your wallet and you talked about her feet
How she models footwear, she's pretty and petite
Any shoe would look good in size five and a half
As the angle of the camera caught her shapely little calf

Don’t you remember how your fingers traced the curve of her back
And how her hair shone in the moonlight that was slipping through the crack
of the window shade and made her skin a shiny silver blue
and the shape of her lips when she said "I love you”

Whatever happened to true love?
Whatever happened to true love?

I was sure that you two had it when I saw you that night
at that garden party by the tiki torch light
That I watched your eyes meet from twenty feet across the lawn
You never said a word but the look was deep and long

Whatever happened to true love?
Whatever happened to true love?

Never put your heart in the hands of fate
Never trust your luck and look away

When you called me with the news I couldn't believe my ears
In between the wise cracks your eyes were filled with tears
Thought if you talked about it you would feel better
But your heart still hurts and you never will forget her

Whatever happened to true love?
Whatever happened to true love?
