Todd Snider – Brenda lyrics
Met on a train goin' somewhere fast
He could see what she had right on
Together they build up an empire so vast
That no one and nothin' could stop them
He looked like a man of the people
She looked high as hell at the ball
Of course they made everybody so jealous
But no one could touch 'em et all
It was true love

What while the rabbles was restin'
They conquered the world and beyond
With each new insatiable ambition
They tested and strengthened their bond
He wasn't nearly as driven
She wasn't nearly as fun
But together they was quite a combination
When it come down to gettin' it done
It was true love
True love

They amassed unspeakable fortunes and she still wasn't satisfied
So he fell out to find what she wanted in her mind
What a hell of a ride
Bought private jet planes and castles
Took every pleasure that they could
Well good love comes with it's troubles
Where things, things wouldn't always be good
It was true love

There was a few times that she cheated
There was even some times when they split
But she upped and went and he got arrested
And she put up with it
It was drugs
Cause what mattered was keepin' that feeling
What mattered was stayin' on top
Some say what's keepin' them together so long
Is feelin' they've already thought they could drop
It's true love
True, true love

These days he's callin' her Brenda
That wasn't always her name
That opened them to so many changes
As they weathered the pressures of change
Not long ago she almost lost him
Lesser man might've been dead
But just when she thought he might be giving up
He was back up in business instead
It was true love

Tonight I'm sure he's in some tavern, smokin', he's drinkin' it in
And I'm sure she's holed up in that office, cruchin' the numbers again
He's livin' it up while she's workin'
I guess that's just about right
Mick Jagger was born on a Monday morning
Keith Richards was born on a Saturday night
It was true love
It was true, it was true, it was true love
It was true, it was true love
