Thinking of when you loved me.
Having a few.
Wishing that you were here.
Making the rounds.
Buying a round for total strangers.
Just being a fool,
'cause I keep hoping, hoping, hoping you'll appear.
Optimistic Voices / Lullaby Of Broadway
You're out of the woods,
You're out of the dark,
You're out of the night.
Step into the sun,
Step into the light,
Then open your eyes
And love will open, ahhh,
Open, open, open, open up.
Skylark, have you anything to say to me?
Can you tell me where my love may be?
Is there a meadow in the mist
Where he's just waiting to be kissed?
Skylark, have you seen a valley green with spring
Where my heart can go a journeying
Over the shadows and the rain
To a blossom covered lane?
I was young, I was just sixteen then,
When you came up from Burma one day.
And you told me to pack up my suitcase,
And I did, and you took me away.
I said, "Do you work nice and steady,
Or do you go sailing and roving out to sea?"
And you said, "I have a job on the railroad,
And baby, how swell it's all gonna be."
You said a lot, Johnny. It was all lies.
You sure had me fooled, right from the start.
"How ya doin' girls? Long time, no see.
Listen, I've been to the doctor lately.
Honey, I just spent forty dollars to hear that from that guy?"
My analyst told me
That I was right out of my head.
The way he described it he said,
"You'd be better off dead
I didn't listen to his jive.
