Fool's Paradise

Fools who are lovers watching the sky
Their wishes on clouds rolling by

Fools who are lovers taking a chance
Listening for music - the gift of the dance
The gift of the dance

They carry their hearts like balloons on a string
Then over time, one by one, they take wing
Love has a way of doing that thing
to fools who are lovers just learning to sing

And if I could love you like a fool I would try
To send all my kisses on clouds 'cross the sky
Singing and dancing a lovers' delight
Making the world a Fool's Paradise

To fools who are lovers the music is kind
Lifting their hearts far beyond the mind
Learning to dance isn't so hard to do
That's what the music will do to you.

Fools who are lovers - join in the dance
Join in the dance
Join in the dance.

When your heart swells

Over the many things

Fabricating an unsteady arch

Over you

Made of turnings

You know to be true

There is

Nothing you can do.

The architects are sacred,

Mooching the precious air


Leaving you breathless.

The Memory of Love

Like water, Love leaves its mark.

Its crumpled indelible sheen

Warms to the touch.

The hand of memory brushes

Ensorcelled pages of its worn book,

Savoring what is locked inside.

Illuminating its delicate pulsing prism.
