Gabriella: A Song

By Abby Berman Mazenod

 

Given the circumstances

Given the chain of events

I’ve made my deductions

I’ve come to my conclusions

With theories upon theories

That I’ve made up in my mind

Didn’t take long to discover

That you’ve left him behind

 

Gabriella, Gabriella

Oh, he’s such a perfect fella

But you won’t listen to me

And the love that it could be

Gabriella, Gabriella

You’re his only Cinderella

And oh, you’re missing the boat

I only hope you’ll still float

…Given the circumstances

 

You deserve a good man in your life

So many have taken advantage of you

And maybe you look for that

But you deserve some sanity too

You’re my friend and I respect that

But I think you should listen to me

And I wish you could see in you

All that I see in you

 

Gabriella, Gabriella

Oh, he’s such a perfect fella

And you won’t listen to me

And the love that it could be

Gabriella, Gabriella

You’re his only Cinderella

And oh, you’re missing the boat

I only hope you’ll still float

 

‘Cause he won’t wait around

As long as you want him to

You’re lucky enough

He’s still around after what you put him through

Don’t you see it?

Don’t you feel it?

Don’t you get it?!

He’s all you’ve been waiting for

You’re letting him walk out the door

 

Gabriella, Gabriella

Oh, he’s such a perfect fella

But you won’t listen to me

And the love that it could be

Hope you find him, hope you found him

‘Cause you know you’re only drownin’

And oh, you’re missing the boat

I only hope you’ll still float

…Given the circumstances

 

(This song was written about a beautiful friend of mine who has had a little bit of rough luck with love. She’s still on the journey of finding love, and I know she will find someone who really deserves her soon.)
