Temporary

from RESEMBLING A STAR by Stephen Bard

lyrics

Alone again he watches as the theatre now grows dark
A couple so romantic sit together in the park
Below her ear upon her neck, her lover leaves his mark
But don't you worry, baby...
With collar turned up to the rain, he stumbles home to bed
Could've hopped the outbound train, chose to walk instead
In the silence of his lonely room, a voice inside his head
Says, "Don't you worry, Jerry..."

It's only temporary
This time alone will end
A better place is waiting just around the bend
I've got to keep believing a broken heart can mend
It's only temporary
Temporary

No breakfast on the table, only coffee or some tea
Either way, she's all alone, not like it ought to be
She had a boyfriend once but he's been two years in the navy
Never seen the baby
She says, "It's hard to meet someone when you're a mom at 22.
Not too many men want to play that scene with you.
Sometimes I get the feeling that my life's already through
And I'm in the cemetery.
I wish someone would tell me..."

It's only temporary
This time alone will end
A better place is waiting for me just around the bend
I've got to keep believing a broken heart can mend
It's only temporary
This time alone will end

One night a friend says, "See a movie. I'll watch Jeremy.
You really need to get some air, if not some therapy.
And whatever you do, Terry, make sure it's a comedy.
I don't want you crazy."
Terry grabs a cab down to the local cineplex
And feels her pulse begin to race when a man sits right down
Next to her and says,
"I've seen you at the market always looking so perplexed...
But also always pretty.
Hello, my name is Jerry."

It's only temporary
