She reminds me of you

I knew
I was over you,
in my mind.

I miss
each and every kiss,
by design.

With laughing eyes
and sad goodbyes,
caring smile
and carefree style,
sweet perfume
in every room,
she reminds me
of you.

I lie
by her side tonight,
one more time.

I pray
each and every day,
I feel fine.

With laughing eyes
and sad goodbyes,
caring smile
and carefree style,
sweet perfume
in every room,
she reminds me
of you.

With flowing hair
and touches there,
sun-tanned back
and jumping Jack,
sense of fun
and joy to come,
she reminds me
of you.

She reminds me
of you.

She reminds me
of you.

Optional verse:

I try
every alibi,
I can find.

Player’s lament

I’m on the sideline
once again,
on a bench
of boys and men,
waiting for the call
to come my way.

I look behind me
in the stands,
and the rows
of anxious fans,
waiting for the chance
to save the day.

I hear the crowd now
sing my name,
and I bathe
in their acclaim,
things are not the same.

I hear the board
have called abroad
a
nd I try
to catch the eye

and my yard of pace?
It won’t return.

East of Eden Park

East of Eden Park
where the dirt glows in the dark
you’d never touch the bark
of the trees,
there stands a handsome school
with clever kids, no fools,
east of Eden Park
in the dark.

When the honeymoon is over

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
the days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
take a walk together
in the sun.

Verse 1
When the honeymoon is over
and the pieces packed away,
pictures hung in silver frames
with tokens of the day.

Bridge
Here at last
the die is cast,
your single days
are long, long passed.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
the days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
take a walk together
in the sun.

Verse 2
When the honeymoon is over
and the relatives all gone,
everything they came to say
still lingers on and on.

Bridge
Here at last
the die is cast,
your single days
are long, long passed.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
the days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
take a walk together
in the sun.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
the days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
take a walk together
in the sun.
