LYRICS-

There is someone that I see                             
Anytime she is free, for a coffee or two         
Laugh and chat about the new                       
We’d talk of things that we’ve done                
Flew to close to the sun, melted into our dreams                                                                
That’s the price of life it seems                        

Conversations with Emily go                            
Hidden places, forgotten spaces                     
Consultation on anything apropos                 
She’s such a joy to know                                   

I’d watch her draw while we’d talk                  
Thoughts in charcoal and chalk,   
Sometimes when they were done                                                               
We would tear them up for fun                       
She never once made me feel                                                                      
That I had to conceal, secrets I never told                          
Like a story they’d unfold

There is someone that I see anytime she is free

There is someone that I see
Anytime she is free, for a coffee or two
Laugh and chat about the new
We’d talk of things that we’ve done
Flew to close to the sun, melted into our dreams
That’s the price of life it seems

Conversations with Emily go
Hidden places, forgotten spaces
Consultation on anything apropos
She’s such a joy to know

I’d watch her draw while we’d talk
Thoughts in charcoal and chalk,
Sometimes when they were done
We would tear them up for fun
She never once made me feel
That I had to conceal, secrets I never told
Like a story they’d unfold

Conversations with Emily go
Hidden places, forgotten spaces
Consultation on anything apropos
She’s such a joy to know
Conversations with Emily
Conversations with Emily
Conversations with Emily

There is someone that I see anytime she is free

She’s a hard one to figure                                                                
Heaven knows how I’ve tried                                                           
Now I’ll be first to admit it’s true                                                     
Even after all that she’s put me through                                       
I would do anything for her smile 
                                                 
There were times I was certain                       
She would surely be mine                                
But just as soon as I’d feel that way               
She would find some other new game to play, still                                                              
I would do anything for her smile
                   
She’s that kind of girl that makes you feel    
You’ll never need to find another                   
But when it all goes wrong, and her love has moved on                                                     
You'll try to let her go, but in your heart you want her so
                                                         
Sometimes when I remember
How I hoped it would be                                  
I catch myself reaching for the phone           
Cause I know I’ve got to leave her alone, still                                                                        
I would do anything, I would give anything   
I would do anything for her smile, for her smile

She’s a hard one to figure
Heaven knows how I’ve tried
Now I’ll be first to admit it’s true
Even after all that she’s put me through
I would do anything for her smile

There were times I was certain
She would surely be mine
But just as soon as I’d feel that way
She would find some other new game to play, still
I would do anything for her smile

She’s that kind of girl that makes you feel
You’ll never need to find another
But when it all goes wrong, and her love has moved on
You'll try to let her go, but in your heart you want her so

Sometimes when I remember How I hoped it would be
I catch myself reaching for the phone
Cause I know I’ve got to leave her alone, still
I would do anything, I would give anything
I would do anything for her smile, for her smile

She was fond of saying  “what’s the point of it all”                                                                 
So I was always praying pride would soften the fall                                                                  
But every time the tumble came                    
I tried to claim it wasn’t so                                                
A hopeless Romeo, she’d laugh                      
I’d take her photograph                                                         

She lives in a world of her own                       
The rules for you and I they don’t apply        
Unlike anyone that you’ve known                   
Mysteriously coy but still, we all bend to her will
                                                                 
Looking for an answer I lost myself in a dream                                                                                                                                   
The last romantic dancer taking one for the team                                                              
Bewildered by the smile she hid I never did connect the dots 
So in the end her thoughts, would soar, as if unspoken for                                                   
She lives in a world of her own                        
The rules for you and I they don’t apply        
Unlike anyone that you’ve known                   
Conditionally kind but still, we all bend to her will                                                                                                                                   
Somewhere in the back of my mind I hear, “enjoy it while you can”    
I should just accept the way she is                 
Cause beauty tends to do as it pleases         
But past a certain point you’re so drawn in  
It’s positively Circean                                      
   
The last thing I remember was feeling           terribly old                                                          
The former top contender all alone in the cold                                                                      
Confronting life without the chase                 
I had to face my fatal flaw                                             
The perfect au revoir, she’d sigh, both hello and good-bye
                                                     
She lives in a world of her own                       
The rules for you and I they don’t apply        
Unlike anyone that you’ve known                   
Predictably aloof but still, we all bend to her will                                                                 
She lives in a world of her own                       
She lives in a world of her own                       
She lives in a world of her own

Rushing here running late again                     
Traffic’s jammed schedule’s slammed but then                                                                      
There never seems to be enough of time      
Within the company of those that I’m            
Glad to find a moment that we both can share

Phone won’t stop too much left undone       
Working more life waits for no one                  
So there never seems to be enough of time

Looking through pictures taken a long time ago                                                                       
Some I remember and some I’m pretending to know                                          
But I took them when, I was young                
Lucky enough to be counted among              
Those that love chose                                       
To be kissed in the mist and the rain                                               
Walking along the Seine
                                   
Light from the café brings out the green in her eyes                                                               
Darker and deeper beyond what her silence belies                                                      
But I knew her when, she was young             
Happy enough to be counted among            
Those that love chose                                       
To have kissed in the mist and the rain                                        
Walking along the Seine
                                   
Laughing the morning away, she’d say,         
“We’ll always have Paris”                                  
Now I walk the same streets as we did before                                                                  
Cobbled memories of her, nothing less, nothing more 
                                                    
Watch as the tourists smile at the sights that they find                                                      
Lovers pass by me                                             
Their hearts and their hands intertwined                                             
And we felt that when, we were young          
Lucky enough to be counted among              
Those that love chose                                       
To be kissed in the mist and the rain                                               
Walking along the Seine, Walking along the Seine 
 
Looking at pictures taken a long time ago

Looking through pictures taken a long time ago

But I took them when, I was young
Lucky enough to be counted among

Darker and deeper beyond what her silence belies
But I knew her when, she was young
Happy enough to be counted among

Cobbled memories of her, nothing less, nothing more

Watch as the tourists smile at the sights that they find

And we felt that when, we were young
Lucky enough to be counted among

To be kissed in the mist and the rain
Walking along the Seine, Walking along the Seine

Looking at pictures taken a long time ago

Jaime was a painter she lived in a loft            
Her talent was soft but her heart was not    
She couldn't keep her mouth shut one too  many times                                                         
And so for her crimes she was not well liked                                                                     
Maybe that's the secret of her allure             
In spite of the tour I'm still not really sure    
When the paint began to run, it really wasn't very fun                                                   
The portrait I was shown, was better left alone 
                                                                   
Ammie was an actress I met through a friend                                                                   
She was quite the blend of a cat and a girl   
Foolishly I lent her my favorite CDs                
Then sure as you please I have not seen her since                                                              
I suppose that isn't much of a price               
To pay once or twice for a roll of the dice     
As the curtain hit the stage, I tried to write another page                                                     
The magic it had passed, I had to change the cast 
                                                                
Sara was a singer whose style was her own 
Without crown or throne she resembled a queen                                                                   
I often thought she had way too many tattoos                                                                 
But a child of the blues can get caught in the scene                                                             
In the end I knew there'd be hell to pay        
I knelt down to pray while the song slipped away                                                                     
When the silence finally came, I was left to take the 
blame                                                                   
Performing a duet, with my own silhouette
  
All and all I thought it was 
a very good year

Jaime was a painter she lived in a loft
Her talent was soft but her heart was not
She couldn't keep her mouth shut one too many times
And so for her crimes she was not well liked
Maybe that's the secret of her allure
In spite of the tour I'm still not really sure
When the paint began to run, it really wasn't very fun
The portrait I was shown, was better left alone

Ammie was an actress I met through a friend
She was quite the blend of a cat and a girl
Foolishly I lent her my favorite CDs
Then sure as you please I have not seen her since
I suppose that isn't much of a price
To pay once or twice for a roll of the dice
As the curtain hit the stage, I tried to write another page
The magic it had passed, I had to change the cast

Sara was a singer whose style was her own Without crown or throne she resembled a queen
I often thought she had way too many tattoos
But a child of the blues can get caught in the scene

When the silence finally came, I was left to take the blame
Performing a duet, with my own silhouette

All and all I thought it was a very good year

Winter always winter                                        
Everywhere I go, a sea of snow 
In all direction

Winter never ending winter                             
Fields that once were green, now stand serene                                                                   
Their flowers frozen

But once upon a time there were warm summer breezes
Now the wind just freezes, all my dreams to sorrow

Always winter never changing winter             
Trees in cloaks of white, no thaw in sight      
Wait on in silence

I wish I knew what it would take                     
To break this cold December spell                 
That keeps me in its icy shell                           
Oh what I’d give to see things as they were before                                                                  
If only I could feel that summer wind once more

Winter always winter
Everywhere I go, a sea of snow In all direction

Winter never ending winter
Fields that once were green, now stand serene
Their flowers frozen

But once upon a time there were warm summer breezes Now the wind just freezes, all my dreams to sorrow

Always winter never changing winter
Trees in cloaks of white, no thaw in sight
Wait on in silence

I wish I knew what it would take
To break this cold December spell
That keeps me in its icy shell
Oh what I’d give to see things as they were before
If only I could feel that summer wind once more

I think it might be safe for me to say             
Since our revolution’s had its day                   
It won’t be back again                                       
We used to be the ones who set the tone     
But by now it’s clear that bird has flown       
We won’t see it again                                        
No we won’t see it again                                  
 
So if you think you’ll stay yesterday’s man    
I really wish you lots of luck with the plan    
I know it’s harder to move on                          
From the twilight than the dawn                    
Storm waters flow to the sea                          
Forgotten eventually                                        
You know we can’t go back                              
You know we can’t go back
                              
Look how the counterculture’s past its          prime                                                                   
Lost in the kaleidoscope of time                     
We won’t see them again                                 
Now just like everyone who’s come before  
Waiting for the boatman on the shore          
We won’t be back again,                                                               No we won't be back again

Some days are better than others                  
Sometimes the sorrow smothers the joy      
But I won’t worry about what will be, or what was                                                             
I’ve got a reason because                                 


Tell me you’re sure our love will last              
If I should have a doubt                                         
Say it again and then you’ll give me               
Something to smile about                               

Call me up just to say hello                              
Oh I’ll be so         devout                                                                 
Show me a sign you're mine and I’ll have         
Something to smile about                               

Life can be so hard we sweat and strain       
Often to get nowhere                                       
But if you find someone to help you see it through                                                               
Keep them close whatever you do

Write me a letter when you’re gone               
So I won’t have to pout                                            
Sealed with a kiss now this would give me   
Something to smile about

Keep them close whatever you do                 

I used to wear a lonely frown                          
Until I figured out

Something to smile about
You give me something to smile about
Now I’ve got something to smile about

I remember those days very well                    
Tangled up in the lure of the spell                  
Chasing down as if a clown a lonesome legacy                                                                   
How I hope you find a better one than me   

Hiding out in the poetry room                        
Weaving tales on a nylon string loom            
To my friends I must have been a pointless mystery                                                                
How I hope they find a better friend than me                                                                        

Is it crime to spend your time, working for a song                                                                  
You’ll bear the chains of life you wear           
Be they short or long                                              

See for me that her eyes are as blue             
As the sparkling sapphires I knew                  
On that day I’m sad to say I had to set her    free                                                                      
So that she could find a better man than      me

Let the boys know our work here is done     
Tell the captain the tide’s on the run             
Chart the crew safe passage to some other destiny
