THERE ARE ALWAYS GREENER PASTURES                         

     THERE ARE ALWAYS BIGGER FISH                        

     BIGGER, BETTER, DIFFERENT                      

     IT’S CALLED “THE ENDLESS WISH”                      


     AN ENDLESS WISH FOR FANTASY                         

     AND ROMANCE ON DEMAND                     

     YOU STILL BELIEVE IN MAGIC                     

     AND THE PERFECT LIFE YOU PLANNED                          


     YOUR PRINCE OR PRINCESS LIVES                       

     AND SOMEDAY YOU WILL MEET                      

     SHE’LL KISS A FROG, PRINCE CHARMING                       

     HE’LL PUT GLASS SLIPPERS ON HER FEET                      


     YOU THINK YOU’VE FINALLY FOUND THEM                       

     YOUR FANTASY COME TRUE                         

     ALL THE THINGS YOU DREAM OF                         

     A PERFECT LOVE FOR YOU                         


     THE MAGIC’S UNMISTAKEABLE                      

     IN THE PASSION OF THEIR KISS                        

     YOU KNOW THAT THIS WAS MEANT TO BE                        

     AND PLAN ON WEDDED BLISS                       


     EVERYTHING IS WONDERFUL                        

     ‘TIL LIFE STARTS CLOSING IN                         

     THE MIND AGAIN IS SOBER                        

     AND THE MAGIC’S WEARING THIN                        


     YOU THOUGHT YOU FOUND THE PERFECT ONE                     

     BUT AGAIN IT’S JUST A TRICK                         

     NO SORROW, GUILT OR FEELING TRAPPED                       

     YOUR EXIT MUST BE QUICK                        


     THE REASONS YOU DISCOVER                       

     HELP TO MEND YOUR PRIDE                        

     THE ENDLESS WISH IS WORKING                         

     TO EASE THE PAIN INSIDE                        


     THE QUEST GOES ON AND ON AND ON                           

     WHILE LIVES AND LOVES ARE SHATTERED                       

     THE “PRIZE OF LOVE” IS WHAT YOU WANT                      

     BUT THE PERSON NEVER MATTERED                       


     TRUE LOVE IS DEMANDING                         

     CONTENTMENT ALWAYS SWEET                       

     “THE ENDLESS WISH” IS EMPTY
