the music                


      




1)  the music box  -


when time is lost
and forever wins
when time is nothing
and forever begins

then always the inlaid music box
will play between us on the table
till we see each other face to face
its ivory lake will be our meeting place
we'll be pirates, we'll be Robin Hoods
we'll live our separate childhoods
but always the inlaid music box
will play between us on the table
Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
Tales from the Vienna Woods

we were pirates, we were Robin Hoods
cattails were our only swords
we lived our separate childhoods
in the future we were moving towards
the indifferent stars lay at our feet
until the Twins and Pisces meet
till Venus gave us privilege
and made Aquarius be our bridge.

and always the inlaid music box
played between us on the table
till we saw each other face to face
its ivory lake was our meeting place
and so our eyes were never dark
for we had hope, though just a spark
for always the inlaid music box
will played between us on the table
Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
Tales from the Vienna Woods

and so our eyes were never dark
but cloudy, mirrors of a cruel sky
for we had hope, though just a spark
in the lake that we were standing by
now winter comes, we have no fear
we weave a web that none can tear
gone is madness, gone is pain
for fortune spins us 'round again

and always the inlaid music box
plays between us on the table
till we see each other face to face
its ivory lake is our meeting place

our eyes are windows on the flowers of Spring
and she must wait for the gifts we bring
while always the inlaid music box
plays between us on the table
Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
Tales from the Vienna Woods

our eyes are windows on the flowers of Spring
pictures from drug store photo machines
while she must wait for the gifts we bring
to tell us each how much the other means
and 
we are pirates, we were Robin Hoods
cattails are our only swords

we live our separare childhoods
in the future we are moving towards
but always the inlaid music box
plays between us on the table
Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
Tales from the Vienna Woods


till time shall lose
and forever win
till time is nothing
and forever begin.

      


2)  c'est la vie  [ chuck berry ] -


it was a teenage wedding
and the old folks wished them well
you could that Pierre
did truly love the mademoiselle
now the young monsieur and madam
had rung the chapel bell
'c'est la vie' say the old folk
'it goes to show you never can tell'

they furnished up an apartment
with a 2-room Roebuck sale
Coolerator was crammed
with TV dinners and ginger ale
when Pierre found work
a little money comin' worked out well
'c'est la vie' say the old folk
'it goes to show you never can tell'

they had hi-fi fer their apartment
and they let it blast
seven hundred little records
all pop, rhythm and jazz
when the sun went down
the rapid tempo of the music fell
'c'est la vie' say the old folk
'it goes to show you never can tell'

they bought a souped-up chimney
was a cherry-red '53
drove it down to Orleans
to celebtate the anniversary
it was there Pierre was wedded
to the lovely mademoiselle
'c'est la vie' say the old folk
'it goes to show you never can tell'

3) chain of love -


we took love from our children
gave love to our parents
we took love from those dear to us
gave love to acquaintance
sometimes we saw our own design
sometimes we called it chance
but love was slowly teaching us
there are no accidents

there is a chain of love
that binds our hearts together
it reaches far beyond
the things we understand
a chain of love
stretching out forever
we're on our way back home
we hold each others hands
in the chain of love

husbands and wives became strangers
lovers became friends
we clung to those who hurt us most
gave passion for indifference
sometimes we saw our own design
sometimes were caught by circumstance
but love was slowly teaching us
there are no accidents

there is a chain of love
that binds our hearts together
it reaches far beyond
the things we understand
a chain of love
stretching out forever
we're on our way back home
we hold each others hands
in the chain of love

the seasons turn and the years go by
some are lost to view
and all our caring seemed in vain
and our best efforts too
we were deceive by destiny
tricked by circumstance
but love was slowly teaching us
there are no accidents


there is a chain of love
that binds our hearts together
it reaches far beyond
the things we understand
a chain of love
stretching out forever
we're on our way back home
we hold each others hands
in the chain of love




4) daddy -


daddy, isn't there someone for me to be?
daddy, i know there must be a better way
daddy, isn't there somewhere for me to go.
and somewhere for me to stay, daddy?

daddy, isn't there someone for me to love?
oh, daddy, i know there must be a place to care
daddy, a reason for someone to love me back,
and a feeling of going somewhere, daddy?

there must be something to try so hard
that doesn't hurt so much
that gives you back the work you do
that's wonderful to see and touch

i know there's a world that we can make
where we can grow up strong
but why does it have to be so hard
and why does it take so long, daddy?

daddy, you didn't say it would be like this
oh, daddy, you didn't tell me dreams would never come true
daddy, that so much confusion and anger and pain
would come between me and you, daddy

daddy, i'm learning to live feeling lost and gone
oh, daddy, it seems as if it's always already too late
daddy, isn't there one day of happiness
that comes without having to wait, daddy?

there must be one hour of glory
unspoiled by envy and hate
can't you help me to find that one vision of beauty
that isn't all jaded, a foolish mistake

i'm learning to live with a past that's gone
and a future that never arrives
i'm learning to live out of one tiny spark
to fan it and keep it alive, daddy.

daddy there must be one instant of deep, true love
that isn't already misplaced or mislaid
daddy, help me to find it, i'm searching again
for hope, for the courage to be afraid.

daddy, help me to find it, i'm searching again
for the faith that i once had
daddy, help me to find it, i'm searching again
for my childhood, for my dreams, oh, daddy

daddy, daddy ........


  




5) i believe -


there were times when we remembered
to give the love we had
and there times when we forgot
when we were cruel and we were sad.

there times we knelt and prayed
in our confusion and our pain
and wondered if we'f ever see
this love of ours again

oh, i believe, i believe
let it be so
that from now on our love will always grow   

oh, i believe, i believe
let it be so
that from each other's hearts we'll never go

was a time when i first saw my love
reflected in your eyes
when we looked down from a mountaintop
and we said  our first goodbyes

there was a time i loved you tenderly
and i knew that you were mine
and we pledged our love beneath a tree
in the snows at Christmastime

oh, i believe, i believe
let it be so
that from now on our love will always grow   

yes, i believe, i believe
let it be so
that from each other's hearts we'll never go

there was a time when pride and anger
made forgiveness seem so far
that i barely held on to the voice
that tells me who you are

there was a time we finally trusted
in the voice of God alone
a time when mortal hope and love
and strength and will were gone

but i believe, i believe
let it be so
that from now on our love will always grow   

yes, i believe, i believe
let it be so
that from each other's hearts we'll never go




6) miracle of the rainbow -


i fell in love with a girl  
she was the first girl that i saw
when i woke up one morning
in the beginning of the world

there was something special about her
just a quiet, honest way
now i'll never be without her
i'll love her every day
every day

i rubbed the sleep from eyes
she was just like any girl
and i spoke to her quite softly
as she fixed the noontime meal

now there's nothing special about her
except everything she does
and i'll never be without her
i'll always give her my love
my love

there's a million stars in the meadow
and each one's a firefly spark
and the peace of our heavenly father
is dancing in the dark

there's a beautiful, arching rainbow
sailing across the sun
and no matter where you're standing
it's there for everyone
for everyone

i fell in love with a girl
she was the first girl that i saw
and she spoke to me quite softly
in the beginning of the world

now we'll always be together
for she's always in my heart
like the miracle of the rainbow
the silent grace of God




7) my love reflected in you -


when you're happy
it makes me happy too
when you smile at me
well, it seems to say
let's forget that we've been blue

when you, i laugh
and my heart is glad
i forget about
the sad times we've  had

when you look at me
in your special way
then i can see
my love
reflected in you

then we kiss
and you hold me tight
the sun comes shinin'
the sky is clear

you take all the love
that i have to give
make all the sad times
disappear,  they disappear

when we're talkin'
all about our dreams
all the things
we're gonna do

then it seems worthwhile
and i understand
all the hard times
we've been through

when you hold my hand
and we make our plans
then i give my heart
each and every part

when you look at me
in your special way
then i can see
my love
reflected in you
