Still Entwined

A long long time ago we parted
So many things we should have said
My broken heart has never mended
I'm still entwined with you dear
The tie that bound is still there.

Should I have spoken what I knew then
Or let my feelings be repressed
And even though we parted good friends
The silence that you left me
I feel it¹s almost deafening.

And if by chance I get to see you
After the years have drifted by
Will it be laughter when I greet you
Or will the tears fill our eyes
And will we tell the same lies?

There And Back Again

I've tried to live alone
Without anyone
Trying to tell me what they're going through
But then I get the blues
Cos I cant spend my life without you

I've been travelling
There and back again
I've looked for places
I've never been to
But if I had to choose
I would not go anywhere without you

Sometimes the rain gets me down
Sometimes I dream about
Flying out to another location
Way out in the blue
But only if you came too

Keep On Dancing

In an empty room
You keep on dancing
The music ended long ago
And the clowns have all departed
You keep on dancing
And with your eyes closed to the world
Just a young girl spinning round

You keep on dancing
You wear your make up
And your fur
Just like Audrey Hepburn

And there will be another time to laugh
And another time to dance
But you you've got it made
You've got it made

Only A Passing Show

The king of hearts came to the fair
And went through the tunnel of love
He said this ride will never end
Even when the ghost train comes
He told me
This will always be a passing show

So who will play the emperor
The fool upon the stage
The hanged man and the lovers
The wheel of fortune says to me
This will only be a passing show

Only a passing show
Only a passing show

The joker told a pack of lies
The actor played himself
The minstrels sang the same old rhyme
The magician cast his spell upon me
This will always be a passing show

I climbed aboard the ghost train
It took me to the edge
The king of hearts had disappeared
But I remember what the old man said to me
This will always be a passing show

Only a passing show
Only a passing show

Ladies In Vogue

Tears that say yes, smiles that say no
You're so desperately wanting the best
But don't ever think you're doing it wrong
Never feel that way
I love you just the way you are

Let the new day, come and then go
Nothing's for certain
But my love won't change
So don't ever think you doing it wrong
Never feel that way
I love you just the way you are

Ladies in Vogue
Looking so satisfied
Trailing their coats
Flashing their eyes.

I must agree with Shakespeare who wrote
Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds
So don't ever think you doing it wrong
Never feel that way
I love you just the way you are.

No Secrets At Ginos

The smile was right the kiss was good
But its almost over
Your eyes don't sparkle like they should
And your walk is slower
The conversation was all down to me
You said you wanted something to eat
We went to Ginos
Nice, but we know the game is over
Throughout the night Vivaldi tried
While the lights got lower
The wine began to take its effect
I turned my head to look at the Thames
No river came into sight
The reflection of your eyes
Made it fade into the night
No secret left in your gaze
But I had to look away
I couldn't stand to see your face in pain

Catherine

Catherine,
I wouldn't lie with you, I wouldn't lie to him.

Catherine,
If we can pick and choose, when will it ever end.

I know that breaking a heart is wrong,
And so I'd better be moving on.

Some other time, some other place, some other bend in the road.
Maybe I'm right, maybe I ain't, maybe I shouldn't say no.

Catherine,
We don't have much to gain, but such a lot to give.

Catherine,
You only have to take a bit of loneliness

Why don't you stay with the one you know,
Instead of leaving with one you don't.

Some other time, some other place, some other bend in the road.
Maybe I'm right, maybe I ain't, maybe I shouldn¹t say no.

Brake On My Heart

It seemed that we had met before
Another lifetime
But who can be sure
I don't know what it was that got me first attracted
But now that its happened
I'll put a brake on my heart

Paint me a picture
Tell me your tale
Nothing will change the way that I feel
Without your love I might as well be locked in prison
But if there's no remission
I'll put a brake on my heart

Predestination
The throw of a dice
One invitation
Then two souls collide
A twist of fate can cause a head on heart collision
But now I've been smitten
I'll put a brake on my heart

Guardian Angel 

The curtains coming down
It's time to leave the stage
The actors and the clowns
Have no more parts to play

I've got to learn how to forgive
And make a brand new start
Maybe I'll find that love can pierce
This vacuum round my heart

Reach out you guardian angel please
If you're looking after me
Come and wake me from this dream

I know I've taken so much time
But there¹s this feeling deep inside
And it's so hard to say good-bye

Memory Lane 

Taking a spin
Where I used to live
The kids are outside
The Palais de Dance
The girls are made up
The boys in a trance
A red neon sign flashing
Buy Me Now

Making my way down memory lane
Even the stars look the same
Making my way down memory lane
Only the time seems to change

Driving my car
Hear the dogs bark
The beggars are all coming to town
Some are in rags
Some are in tags now
Some are all dressed up in silken gown

Making my way down down memory lane
Even the stars look the same
Making my way down memory lane
Only the time seems to change

So glad you made it
Back home again
Down through the ages
Here comes the rain

Its all been done before
Open the same old door
Forever is no time at all
