The cry of a lover in denial, still believing his soulmate will return in time.
I believe in the permanence of the firmament
Circuitous paths and perpetual patterns
In your image, I traced constellations
Our place was assured among the stars, we were destined for heaven. Together.
I couldn’t have guessed, and I can’t accept it
You welcomed another into our garden.
He can’t be your one love, I am your true love
And star-crossed lovers can’t override the power of destiny
And star-crossed lovers can’t survive the fate I see so clearly
As sure as the Earth is flat
And Elvis is coming back
You’ll never love anyone as much as me
It’s foretold in the Zodiac,
The fates have ordained our love relapse
Until then I’ll be the one that got away
Every time I look to the stars, they remind me
Patience is a small price to pay for eternity
So I wait and I swear
You can hear the fateful whisper
I’ve seen that look in your eyes, I’ve seen that look in your eyes
But never as deep as when you looked in mine
They never shine like when you looked in mine
Here are some videos from last night's gig at Riverside Park in Auburn Hills. Enjoy musical goodness from the golden age of rock and roll!
We met through a friend and the drama began
The day I saw your face
I made my move and we started to groove
on the couch at your best friend’s place
That night we started to talk and we couldn’t stop
We nearly eclipsed the moon
When the sun came up i already knew
You were gonna be the one
So I asked you
And you said yes
And then you kissed me
And I was ob-sessed
It won’t surprise you to know
In my chemical vertigo
Your eyes just stole this heart of mine
It’s a victimless crime
And I’ll do the time, yeah....
Yeah, we met through a friend and the drama began
The day i saw your face
I made my move and we’ve been groovin’
Ever since that day
And now we share a love so rare
We sure eclipsed the moon
And the sun never set on the day we met
And it never will again
All ‘cause I love you
And you love me too
Our love is limitless
And I am so blessed
Yes, you stole this heart of mine,
It’s a victimless crime
