    HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO SEE THE STARS?

    I won’t disown
    those things my heart has sown
    the blame …is mine alone
    I made this fickle heart my own
    but how am I supposed to see the stars
    how am I supposed to see that far

    I see the cost
    of all this heart has lost
    and how…those dice were tossed
    in lives this fickle heart has crossed
    but how am I supposed to see the stars
    how am I supposed to see that far

    how am I supposed to start
    and change an ever-changing heart
    light some corner of a mind
    that isn’t there for me to find
    and how am I supposed to see
    the stars you say are meant for me
    how am I supposed to praise
    those stars with eyes I cannot raise

    maybe I’m supposed to say
    I’m walking tall on feet of clay
    resting only when I check
    the albatross around my neck
    how am I supposed to see
    the stars you say are meant for me
    oh how am I to see….eeeee

    but how can I
    who lent my heart the lie
    now lift up heart and eye
    and let that fickle heart see sky
    and how am I supposed to see the stars
    how am I supposed to see that far

    how am I supposed to start
    and change an ever-changing heart
    light some corner of a mind
    that isn’t there for me to find
    and how am I supposed to see
    the stars you say are meant for me
    how am I supposed to praise
    those stars with eyes I cannot raise

    maybe I’m supposed to say
    I’m walking tall on feet of clay
    resting only when I check
    the albatross around my neck
    how am I supposed to see
    the stars you say are meant for me
    oh how am I to see….eeeee

    ONCE I HELD A MOON

    once I held a moon…a lover’s gift
    if memory serves me right
    once I owned a sky where moons could drift
    and bathe my world in light
    I held on to that moon as long as
    he was there just holding me
    but it means nothing to moons you see

    once I held a moon….a lover’s ploy
    it was not his to give
    this is Life he said..enjoy
    but it wasn’t mine to live
    I let the moon slip through my fingers
    and my love let go of me
    but it means nothing to moons you see

    they sail through the night and you follow
    you hitch up your heart to that moon…… like a cart
    it’s all you know how
    you’re faced with your pride but can’t swallow
    you lift up your spoon
    and you howl at the moon
    that it shouldn’t have shone
    and that you are not sad he has gone

    once I held a moon …..and by its light
    I loved and he loved me
    but it means nothing to moons you see

    DANCE ME, LOVE

    your weak afterglow
    can’t warm a heart in sorrow
    the spark that is left behind
    can’t light a troubled mind

    your fire I know
    can warm those bleak tomorrows
    the dark must not enter in
    so let the dance begin

    dance me Love
    dance me through the dark
    dance me Love
    dance me through the dark

    we move to and fro
    we beg or steal or borrow
    a love that can fan the spark
    and help us face the dark

    dance me Love
    dance me through the dark
    dance me Love
    dance me through the dark

    YOU SEND ME FLOWERS

    listen boy you’ve met your match
    I’ve closed my heart
    secured the latch
    I’ll keep it locked should you decide
    it’s tiiiiime
    to help me swallow foolish pride
    and to take me for
    yet another ride
    onto that carousel I’ll climb
    without a word you’ll leave me there
    just hanging in the air

    then you send me flowers
    your flesh is willing
    your mind is weak
    thinks flowers speak
    flowers
    send more bouquets
    won’t you try to change your ways
    then you send me flowers
    your way of winning
    time and favour
    hope I’ll waver
    flowers
    send more bouquets
    won’t you tryyyyyy to change your ways
    my days

    listen I’ll disprove your hunch
    that sending flowers
    by the bunch
    is gonna help you win me back
    this tiiiiiime
    not every door that sorrow closes
    can be opened by your roses
    won’t let their fragrance cloud my mind
    you must learn that tender care
    means all in a love affair

    but you send me flowers
    your flesh is willing
    your mind is weak
    thinks flowers speak
    flowers
    send more bouquets
    won’t you try to change your ways
    then you send me flowers
    your way of winning
    time and favour
    hope I’ll waver
    flowers
    send more bouquets
    won’t you tryyyyyy to change your ways
    my days

    I DON’T WANT TO SEE YOU CRY

    there’s no tender way to say it’s the end
    and so win or lose
    I’m forced to choose
    between a lover and a loving friend
    let me hear you say
    how you curse the day
    you opened up your heart to me
    that you ever invited me in
    tell me I’m the loser…and you win

    I don’t want to see you cry
    I beg you try
    not to let the pain I’m causing reach your eyes
    I don’t want to see you cry
    aim your words like spears
    don’t break me up by breaking down in tears

    hide your pain but when push comes to shove
    don’t keep your pride
    locked deep inside
    rage against the dying of my love
    don’t sigh my name
    give me all the blame
    call me heartless call me cruel
    and accuse me of dealing in lies
    just don’t let my leaving cloud your eyes

    I don’t want to see you cry
    I beg you try
    not to let the pain I’m causing reach your eyes
    I don’t want to see you cry
    aim your words like spears
    don’t break me up by breaking down in tears

    dreams come……..dreams go
    some fade…………some grow
    dream on…………dream on
    you’ve got to dream on
    after I’ve gone

    I don’t want to see you cry
    I beg you try
    not to let the pain I’m causing reach your eyes
    I don’t want to see you cry
    aim your words like spears
    don’t break me up by breaking down in tears

    IN A SENTENCE

    in a sentence
    I just had to fall
    ran no risk at all
    it all made sense
    my heart did not control my head
    this being said
    leaves little to tell

    in a sentence
    this is why I fell
    this and so much more though
    young lovers have I know
    gone this road before
    and have like me been just as sure
    in a sentence I’d say all’s well

    might live to rue this day
    but hope Love’s kinder than they say
    didn’t plan a single move or play a leading role
    he found an ailing heart
    and at his touch that heart was whole
    so what he means to me
    is far more than you see

    in a sentence
    what I feel for him
    is no passing whim that
    is doomed to fade and die
    I can face those knowing smiles
    it makes no odds you see
    in a sentence….I know he loves me

    TAKE A LONG, LONG WALK

    take a long, long walk
    off a short, short pier
    when you’re wading ashore
    see if I’m waiting here

    take a long, long walk
    in the poring rain
    y’know a soaking or two
    works a treat on the brain

    you caught me on a hopeless day
    it’s no-one’s fault but I just have to say
    I must have been insane or half asleep
    it turns out your promises weren’t made to keep

    you came and saw and conquered me
    but let me give you some advice for free
    the time has come for you to take a walk
    if I’m still here when you get back..we’ll talk

    take a long, long walk
    off a short, short pier
    when you’re wading ashore
    see if I’m waiting here

    take a long, long walk
    in the pouring rain
    y’know a soaking or two
    works a treat on the brain

    when the going’s heavy
    and words they just ain’t getting through
    the choices ain’t so many
    so you just do what you must do

    a stroll would do the world of good
    you might just see our love the way you should
    there is no hurry but if you’re quick
    you’ll be back to see my vanishing trick

    take a long, long walk
    off a short, short pier
    when you’re wading ashore
    see if I’m waiting here

    take a long, long walk
    in the pouring rain
    y’know a soaking or two
    works a treat on the brain

    BE GONE

    be what you wanna be
    and leave the rest to me
    another name
    crossed out on my list
    say what you gotta say
    then you can make your way
    towards my door
    walk on through unmissed

    there’s no rush take your time
    punishment’s part of crime
    you’ll soon see
    what you have to pay
    you moved in ate your fill
    now my love here’s the bill
    let us hear
    what you have to say

    be gone
    how are you gonna make it
    when you win a heart to break it
    when you talk of Love but fake it
    be gone
    with a last reminder
    a keeper’s not a finder
    so be a little kinder
    be good
    or you’re gonna be gone

    you think I’m hard as nails
    hope you might tip the scales
    to favour you
    get this heart to sway
    you heard right no mistake
    this heart ain’t yours to break
    so if you’re wise
    you’ll be on your way

    be gone
    how are you gonna make it
    when you win a heart to break it
    when you talk of Love but fake it
    be gone
    with a last reminder
    a keeper’s not a finder
    so be a little kinder
    be good
    or you’re gonna be gone

    what is in a letter
    don’t know whether
    ‘ B’ must stand for ‘ better’
    but until I find another way
    be gone be gone ….etc.

    BORROWING MOONS

    now that you have found her
    just put your arms around her
    talk then of love and that soon
    you’ll reach out and give her the moon

    we move from cold to colder
    so draw her near and hold her
    weave moonlight into her hair
    whisper you’ll always be there

    ah ah ah ……………….

    stroke away her sadness
    with a touch of moonlight madness
    a moon can be borrowed at will
    yet come tomorrow it’s still
    there on high……sailing by….you and I…ah ah ah ah

    get wise and not just older
    draw her near and hold her

    UNBREAKABLE HEART

    unbreakable heart play your part
    in the scheming I have done
    not to fall for anyone
    or let love start

    unbreakable heart it’s an art
    you will master by and by
    ‘till then just be my
    unbreakable heart

    you may get swept away
    like other fragile hearts
    but don’t you ever say
    Love’s breaking me apart

    unbreakable heart don’t depart
    from the pact that we have made
    Love is forsakeable
    my unbreakable heart

    you may get swept away
    like other fragile hearts
    but don’t you ever say
    Love’s breaking me apart

    unbreakable heart it’s an art
    you will master by and by
    ‘till then just be my
    unbreakable heart
