LOYAL, BRAVE, AND TRUE

She ain’t exciting, no work of art
Got more brains than she has a heart
And if you dare her to, best believe she will
She’s not the heat of the noonday sun
More like midnight, moonlit run
She knows that life can be a bitter pill.
She’s stiller waters, she runs deep
She’s a heavy dreamless sleep
She knows pleasure never comes without its pains
She ain’t no mountain, standing tall
Or some sparkling waterfall
If anything, I’d say that she’s the plains.
She’s comfy in the backstage
Watching life pass by
Tells herself each day’s a new page
Yet she knows that’s a lie
‘Cause every night, when she’s alone
She’d give up everything she’s done
To have a chance to be a shining star
But she knows down deep inside
And heaven knows how hard she’s tried
We can’t change the crazy things we are
And you know she has her weakness
When she hangs her head to cry
But you’ll never see that meekness
No matter how you try.
She is so dependable
Yet she knows, expendable
Ain’t nothin' here someone can’t replace
And no one knows, and no one cares
About the secret pain, she shares
They don’t see the tracks of tears on her face
And she’s no majestic mountain
No sparkling waterfall
Never be a gorgeous fountain
That just ain’t her at all.
She’s no rapid white with foam
Or some fancy sprawling home
She’ll never grace a single magazine
She’s predictability
But not much fun to be
The most forgettable face you’ve never seen
