Smalltown Romance (C/S1/E1/I4)

Just then, down the street came the roar of a 1980’s Trans Am. Cyrus’s best friend, Connor, was pulling into their driveway.
She hadn’t seen him in months. They had only talked online, and they missed each other very much.

This is what love songs are really singin’ ’bout.
There’s never any hate, and never any doubt.
This is the person you’re meant for. It’s not by chance.
It’s nothing but a small, smalltown romance.

Years ago when Cyrus was young
a boy came to her Sunday school class.
He stole her headband to get her attention.
He said “Sorry” and they became friends fast.
Love stories like this come only in small towns
where people don’t leave each other, they stick around.
And even one day their parents knew they’d find
both of them married; they were that entwined.

This is what love songs really mean at the heart.
It begins the second you meet, right from the very start.
you’re best friends forever, even at first glance.
It’s nothing but a small, smalltown romance.

So that night when Connor came in his Trans Am
he picked up Cyrus and drove somewhere grand.
He planned on taking her to Stone Mountain
but a gas leak kept all of that from happenin’.
So instead he drove to a much smaller place,
a little neighborhood that survived by God’s grace.
a cul-de-sac on top of a large mound:
and you could see all of Atlanta from on top lookin’ down.
They had a picnic right there with fried chicken and sweet tea,
but then all of a sudden Connor said:

Connor:”Cyrus, will you marry me?”

Even down the road, when you’re talkin’ ’bout forever
You really can’t remember a time, you were never together.
So it’s really not hard, to maintain that stance.
It’s nothing but a small, smalltown romance.

Cyrus said yes, and Connor drove her back to her house.
