A life encompassing a lot of loss and gain,
Met men who hurt to cause a lot of grief and pain,
Gave few reasons to smile and lot of disdain
Yet there was one with a smile insane,
Who took me away to distant lands and terrain,
And under the stars and by the balmy sea wind,
He would sing an old lovers song again and again...
The song that I now sing with the city's new rain,
A mind that wanders into an old lovers lane...
