Lyrics
Once upon a midnight dearie I woke with something in my head I couldnt escape the memory Of a phone call and of what you said Like a game show contestandt with a parting gift I could not believe my eyes When I saw through the voice of a trusted friend Who needs to humor me and tell me lies And Ill lie too and say I dont mind And as we seek so shall we find And when youre feeling open Ill still be here But not without a certain degree of fear Of what will be with you and me I still can see things hopefully CHORUS: But you Why you wanna give me a run-around Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up When all it does is slow me down And shake me and my confidence About a great many things But Ive been there I can see it cower Like a nervous magician waiting in the wings Of a bad play where the heroes are right And nobody thinks or expects too much And Hollywoods calling for the movie rights Singing hey baby lets keep in touch But I want more than a touch I want you to reach me And show me all the things no one else can see So what you feel becomes mine as well And soon if were lucky wed be unable to tell Whats yours and mine the fishings fine And it doesnt have to rhyme so dont you fee me a line CHORUS Tra la la la la bomba dear this is the pilot speaking And Ive got some news for you It seems my ship still stands no matter what you drop And there aint a whole lot that you can do Oh sure the banner may be torn and the winds gotten colder Perhaps Ive grown a little cynical But I know no matter what the waitress brings I shall drink it and be full My cup shall always be full Oh I like coffee And I like tea Id like to be able to enter a final plea I still got this dream that you just cant shake I love you to the point you can no longer take Well all right okay So be that way I hope and pray That theres something to say CHORUS(2x)
