Spoken For - ęChristopher Mark Jones 2016

Wandering in the summer green
Where things may not be as they seem
She was pretty so was he
They talked of lands beyond the sea
Then she said Do not misinterpret what this means

'Cause I'm spoken for
Yes I'm spoken for
There's a little less glitter But a lot more gold
And he will love me when I'm old
I'm spoken for
Spoken for


He was where he might have stayed
But he knew she had only strayed
When she touched his chest and raised her brow
He said I cannot allow
To let you throw your one best chance away

'Cause you're spoken for
I know you're spoken for
There's a little less glitter
But a lot more gold
And you'll still love him when you're old
You're spoken for
Spoken for


And the carousel goes round
To the organ's circus sound
When it stops will you know how
To put your feet back on the ground

Now I look across the bed
And wonder at the things we've said
And every day we've fought & won
The right to be not two but one
And the words remembered echo in my head

'Cause now I'm spoken for
Yes I'm spoken for
There's a little less glitter
A lot more gold
And I'll still love you when we're old
I'm spoken for
Yes, I'm spoken for
Spoken for
