Cecily Smith

The war was over, I was living with my folks
I yelled upstairs, "Hey ma, I`m off to grab some smokes."
And my father called, "Why you need to smoke so late?"I lied. I had a date.
Free of my folks` enslavement,
Skipping along the pavement,
To see a brunnette, who I never met
but I never would forget
How she looked in that dress
How she stook out her hand and said,
"My name is Cecily Smith
And I hope you like music
Cause I`ve got two tickets for La Traviata"
That`s when I said "I hate opera!"
She laughed and said,
"Well lucky for you that you`re with Cecily Smith.
Who cares what you are listening to, it`s who you`re listening with."
We take our seats, her hands werefolded in her lap.
If not a kiss, then I at least will get a nap.
So I close my eyes as the orchestra begins,
then I hear violins, and the hair on my neck was rising
A feeling new and surprising
But it wasn`t the sound that made my heart pound
No, it was because I found that her hand was in mine.
And that`s where it will stay until they play the final chord
She says "Were you bored?"
And I said, "I guess it wasn`t quite so bad."
It was the best time that I`d ever had.
She laughed and said "Well lucky for you, I got seats to Beethoven`s Fifth.
Who cares what you`re listening to, it`s who you`re listening with."
A perfect wife.
A perfect life.
Time exploded, like a bullet from a gun
A week, a year, and then a marriage and a son.
And a rental where I still can hear her laugh
when I play the phonograph!
And I let the music guide me
And Cecily sits beside me
A girl of nineteen
With a nervous marine
Feel her head begin to lean
As the melody soars
And though it was real
it doesn`t feel like it could be
That night when you said to me
"I`ve got two tickets for La Traviata"
It`s sad but true
How much I miss you
I miss you Cecily Smith
Life is not the things that we do, it`s who we`re doing them with.
