  1. To Be In Love

Lyrics

“To Be in Love”

I know maybe just one thing; what makes the caged bird sing.
I hold maybe just one truth;
spare change from a misspent youth.

I lost my soul in anticipation, came this close to resignation,
Found salvation so elusive, expert theories inconclusive,
Not to complicate, there’s one pure state ~

To Be in Love…

I swing with the cocktail crowd, lights low while the band plays loud…my mind in a martini, I did time and then time did me ~

I lost my soul in anticipation, settled into resignation,
Thought I’d quelled that voice inside me,
Quietly, yet still it’d chide me…
Not to complicate, there’s one pure state ~

To Be in Love…

Bridge: Once I thought I’d never let you go
I’d never let you know this fire in me…
Cool and cruel, those things we’d never say
Until they blow away, what we can’t see…

One dawn through a half-drunk dream,
I caught a glimpse of where I’d been…
Could I recall maybe just one thing..?

Listen close and hear the caged bird sing
Never settle, never die, always wonder, always try
Without regret, right from the start
Until the end, straight through the heart ~

Not to complicate, there’s one pure state ~

To Be in Love…
