Love songs give me a heartache when I'm all alone.
I'm missing you but I can't even talk to you on the phone.
I always dial your number but you're never there
or else I get nervous when I think about the way the light hits your hair.
I'm losing the edge in my heart
I'm happy when it's over
almost wish that things would
never start.
Romance is dead, that's what they tell me anyway
I got you flowers but you were gone
I'll save them for a rainy day
I remember the night that we talked for hours in my car
I'd like to write a poem about you but I...

Written by Tony Pena (Quill-in-Heart)
I tried a diamond †ring round your finger †
But you held out for a band of black coal†
Married to the memories that linger
In the boarded up tavern of your soul
I lit a lamp to help†you find your way †
But this guide's tour you didn't want to see
As your heart turned blind and started to stray†
Miles away from roses and reverie †
Chorus
There's a little girl inside who you †put †under lock and key
Like long lost family heirlooms and favorite jewelry
You let her out for air once and she sang like a chickadee
The lady I fell in love with...

The thief wears tats of your heart on a chain
Strutting on streets from misery to Main
Accessories he needs to make him whole
To make some sense of all the things he stole
Like a nightmare leaching through to daylight
Shadows hiding hopes and dreams out of sight
Draining the last bit of virtue from you
Till all thatís left is a puddle of blue
Chorus
Iíve got to beg, borrow or steal a dream
Worthy enough of your heartís golden gleam
A ticket for better lives to redeem
I wish I knew all the tricks in the book
The right approach for the perfect...

Oh to have you.
Oh to hold you.
Oh to need you.
I do, I need you.
It's true.
Every once in a little while
I try to be strong and I try to smile.
My life was perfect until I met you, it's true.
Now all that I do is think about you.
How to have you.
How to hold you.
How I need you.
It's true, I think about you.
I do.
How the light shines from your eyes,
how when you cry I want to die,
how my heart grows when I see you smile.
How could this be?
Somehow you've set me free.
Every once in a little while
I try to be...

You and me: walking 'round the Christmas tree,
talking 'bout the things we wanna do.
You alone: thinking of home
and how you need to get away from me.
And now I'm here
I'm counting the stars
I'm counting the scars in my heart
Because I do
miss
you
at times.
Every day I count the stars,
I count the ways I've cried.
Before I ever knew you I never needed you again.
Before I ever wanted you I never wanted to die.
Every day I 'm looking around for a better way to run away.
Every day I've tried to look away but all I see is you...

It turns out that you're everything I ever wanted in my life
You picked me back up on my feet. You make everything alright
You taught me how to see the majesty of the sunset in the sky
then chased away everything that ever made me cry
Now I'm standing by the sea
thinking of you thinking of me
I think of the things that I had to leave
to be alone in my misery
I still fear the dark sometimes
when I'm all alone, I do.
'Cause I'm just a fool without you, it's true.
I'm just a fool without you.
Sorry I never meant to stare
I just love the way...

Almost like the blues

Warmth of your voice
Your charming smile
I love the poetry of your song
During all the day, in my mind, I remember that

Almost like the blues

Beauty of the music
Deepness of the lyric
I love your songs, mister Cohen
During all the day, in my mind, I remember your voice

Thank you for all your songs

I was sitting by the sea, I was staring into space
The waves crash by my feet. All I see is your face
staring back at me the way you used to do
when we'd sit by the sea.
When it was me and you.
Time washes away the rain.
It always seems to be the same;
I'm left alone to face my shame.
All alone again.
And I'm looking at the sky, I'm wishing on the stars
and it almost makes me cry to think that they're
not as far as you are. If you can believe it
the stars are closer than you are, if only by a minute
of my time.
I'd trade a hundred years...

The Vets shuffle by all creases and shine
Backs straighten through the ache of brittle bones
Saluting each Old Glory on the line
Along a sea of orange traffic cones
Spoiled brats rolling blank eyes looking away
Just anxious for the floats to pass on by
God bless the mall for another sales day
On the tab of guys cursed enough to die
Chorus
Drinking with devils roosting in the air
Their best friend's blood on their camouflage wear
So easy to ignore when you weren't there
More than just names bronzed in Liberty Square
Half a Jack brought a...

I'm wishing on every star I've seen all night.
I don't remember how far you are but it feels like a million miles.
It's too late to call, I fear that I might wake you.
But I can't seem to sleep as the stars start to weep because you're not here.
And the thought of your smile pierces my mind
as I long for your touch and that look in your eyes
as I walk in the room and your stare meets mine.
The city lights in the distance offer a sweet reminiscence of you
as we drove down the street through the still summer heat
and I couldn't help but enjoy the view....
