Thursday Evening Thursday early evening Thinking dark thoughts only you Can you cure these thoughts?
Waking Up to No You
Waking up to no you Absent in my bed at night Absent from my dreams
One Moment, One Day
One moment, one day You walked out of my nightmares And swept into life
You Are My Angel
You are my Angel Sent from God up in heaven To conquer my life
Saying Goodbye for Now
Saying goodbye now Is the hardest thing to do But I must do it
Know I Must Say I do
I know I must say I do But I don't want to today Just don't have the strength
I Can Not Get Rid
I cannot get rid This angel haunting my soul Seeing your face in the sky
I Float Here and There
I float here and there Neither here nor there tonight Tomorrow will be
You Are My Everything
You are my everything All my hopes and dreams Haunting my nights
One Night in Lithia Springs
One night in Lithia Springs We soaked away our painful life And again fell in Love
One Night I Dreamt of You One night I dreamt of you For seven years I dreamt of you Until you walked into my life
Where do you and I
Where do you and I Where do you begin to end Where do I belong
Meeting Dream Girl
I first dreamt of Angela when I was but a lad of 17 living in Berkeley, California. It was 1974 and life seemed full of possibilities in that magical year the tail end of the fabled 60’s.
I fell asleep that fateful day in a boring Physics class. I woke up seeing the most beautiful women in the world looking at me. I was shocked and did not know what to say.
She spoke to me in a strange language but somehow, I knew that someday we were to be together. I just knew that I would meet the girl in the dream. It was love at first sight. She disappeared and I fell to the floor yelling, “who are you?”
Then I started having the same dream month after month for seven long years. I had to decide where to go in the Peace Corps and chose to go to Korea because I knew she would be there. I looked for her every day knowing that someday she would walk out of my dreams and into my life.
Then one day I had the last dream. She walked off the bus in front of me. I was shocked did not know what to say and she smiled at me melting my heart away. I got her number agreed to meet the next day.
She came to my class room and we talked at length. She was madly in love with me and she had to have me. I told her I felt the same way. We married two months later. And that was the beginning of 35 years of happiness.
When I first saw you Standing on the hot roadway I knew life began
That was the end game The beginning of my life with you A journey with you
