"For the Lady" CD
Stopover Tokyo

hands on the water and soft kimono              
                 move with the patience of oceans
that flow
move on the darkness so restless below        
                    i long to see you again

lost in the cabin of this floating world
lost in our thoughts every boy every girl
trying to sleep like a cat lying curled
soon i'll be with you again

stopover tokyo
when do we land?
sweet sweet Misako
time's in your hand

sweet scent of springtime and blossoms so
fair
fall like the sunlight and rest in your hair
fall like the starlight for dreamers to share
hush!   it's that old song again

stopover tokyo
when do we land?
sweet sweet Misako
time's in your hand

wind from the north and the sun in the east
drawing me where tide and motion have
ceased
drawing me where?  will the future bring
peace?
then will i see you again?

stopover tokyo
when do we land?
sweet sweet Misako
time's in your hand.........
The Road Goes on Forever

the road goes on forever
and never turns back home
but press our hearts together

and keep your love beside me
to hide me from the storm
be the star to guide me
though dreams be tossed and torn

when things are wrong you comfort me
there's nothing i need say
it seems so long you've come with me
it seems so long a way

so wake me in the morning
and make each morning new
i'll taste the wind that dawn brings
at night i'll sing for you

the road goes on forever
and ever turns for home
so press our hearts together
and we won't stand alone

in darkest times you comfort me
there's nothing i need say
the light that shines still comes with me
still shines upon the way

the road goes on forever
and ever turns for home
so press our hearts together
we won't go this way........ alone
Can't Help The Way I'm Feelin'

please don't look at me/since you walked in
i've acted so madly/my world is in a spin
i've lacked discretion/couldn't find my feet
what was the impression/did i miss the beat?

can't help the way i'm feelin'
i'm in darkest despair
if you'd put your arms around me
i'd follow everywhere

please don't look at me/i won't play your game
but you attract me/the night won't stay the
same
i won't surrender/stare across the floor
try not to remember/what the music's for

can't help the way i'm feelin'......


please don't move closer/i can hear you speak
talking of Formosa/drums of Mozambique
a dangerous condition/i feel like a fool
don't you have suspicions/how can you be so
cool

can't help the way i'm feelin'.......
Made In France

made in france, toujours le qualite
for romance it's dress the paris way
exotique, a hint of danger
when you look it's at a stranger
it's stranger and stranger

made in france, footloose and fancy free
or par chance, soft shoes from italy
dubious designer labels
money passed under the tables
from table to table

lay your head upon my shoulder
can't you feel the nights grow cold
am i too bold, i love you

may we dance tonight from twelve to
three
or entranced by moonlight on the sea
i find it strange, foolish behaviour
but life with you is like a favour
to savour and savour.......
Let's Not Say Goodbye

hey, it's sad not funny
how life slips away
let ours not be wasted
let's not end this way

hey, it's sad my darlin'
how life slips away
let us not be parted
let's not end this way

you know that i love you
i've lived and died for you
let's make it together
please don't say we're through

we're both so good at closin' up
and if somethin's wrong we don't say
why
but instead of quittin', actin' tough
it's best to let it out, break down an'
cry

hold me, hold me darlin'
don't be afraid to try
let's make it together
let's not say goodbye

we've both said we've had enough
and who can blame or wonder why
but instead of quittin', when it's rough
it's best to let it out, break down and
cry

hold me, hold me darlin'
don't be afraid to try
let's make it together
let's not say goodbye.......

For the Lady

my lady so fair
it's you i adore
a bird in the air
the wind on the shore
i'll send you a dove
to fly to your heart
so my lady, my love
we'll never part

for the lady
the summer breeze blows ceaselessly
for the lady
the seven seas flow wild and free

my lady so fair
who waits on her deck
i'll gather wildflowers
fine pearls for her neck
i'll gather sea showers
that have no regrets
so my lady, these hours
you won't forget

for the lady
the summer breeze blows ceaselessly
for the lady
so heavenly, grows wild the sea
for the lady
the summer breeze blows ceaselessly
for the lady
so heavenly, grows wild the sea
Ways

i was you and you were me
we used to speak quite openly
till we knew that i was i
and you were you

now it seems that when we talk
our words do not reflect our
thoughts
and they lean to what's been sold
and what's been sought

now we've started to go our own
ways
and leave each time with less to
say

now we've started to go our own
ways
and leave each time with less to
say

i was you and you were me
we used to speak quite openly
till we knew that i was i and you
were you
Fly Away (Romanza)

fly away  with me
fly away  we'll be
sharing each moment
sharing each day

fly away  my love
to the moon above
wherever together
forever as one

some come and go
arrive and depart
some travel forth
stay in your heart

fly away  tonight
all the stars so bright
we'll lift past the mountains
over the sea

fly away  last call
sweetest dreams to all
we're following rainbows
to drift in the sun

and as the moon appears to climb
i find you sleeping
every moment, every time
is so complete

fly away  with me
fly away  we'll be
sharing each moment
sharing each day

fly away  my love
to the stars above
we'll go on together
now we've begun......

on holiday
let in the sun
then drift away
when night time comes....
