Peggy Watson: Music

Real Life

(Peggy Watson)
words/music by P. Watson
Well, I don’t want to give you some song and dance
About how our lives entwine by some grand design
But there’s one thing that sure is true
I like the things you do

I don’t want to take you on some magic carpet ride
Where love’s so sweet that it’s incomplete
But if you like to sleep out under the stars
Pack up and hop in my car

Cause this is real life
And it’s real love that I’m feeling
Or at least it seems that way
Why don’t we give it a try, we’re just a little bit shy
I’ll meet you half way

I’m not Miss America, I don’t have skin as soft as silk
I never wore a crown or a fancy evening gown
But I can touch you with all of my soul
You make me feel whole

And this is real life
And it’s real love that I’m feeling
Or at least it seems that way
Why don’t we give it a try, I’m not saying do it or die
I’ll meet you half way

I’ve had it up to here with infatuation
I’ve acted like a fool too many times
But you just make sense, you’ve won my confidence
And I really think you’re one of a kind

You don’t have to charm me, I’ve never felt so inspired
I’m truly blessed by your tenderness
But you know what matters most in the end
Is I can call you my friend

Cause this is real life
And it’s real love that I’m feeling
Or at least it seems that way
Why don’t we give it a try, now don’t be shy
I’ll meet you half way
