Heaven

©1998, Bar Scott ASCAP                                       

 

Years ago I remember holding hands
Running around and falling down                                                      
In circles then, the sun was shining everywhere
I remember my hand in your hand
And then I find that I remember holding you
In the grass in the meadow
And here I am, I’m on my knees

Looking to heaven so far away
Searching for my way

In love with you
The sun was shining down on my
I remember just lying there
The sky was turning like a movie screen
Where the clouds roll in fast
And here I am I’m on my knees again

Looking for heaven, far, far away
So far that I can’t find my way

When I am here
Roses are red, a violet’s blue
When I’m in love with you
When I am here
Ashes to ashes
We all fall down
And we get up again
We all get up

I’m walking all the way to heaven
Heaven here I come
I’m almost all the way to heaven
Heaven turned away

Why am I here?
Where roses are red and black
And no violet’s blue when I’m in love with you
Why am I here?
Ashes to ashes
We all fall down
And we get up again

We all get up

                                                                    

Fear From Paradise

© 2000, Bar Scott 2000 ASCAP 

 

A thousand nights ago when we were young
I heard a voice that sang my name
And handed me a rose
How did he know?

A millionaire could not predict it
The tarot cards would not foretell
He’d paint even though he’d gone blind
How could he know fear from paradise?
Paradise from standing still in the dark?

The night before the wind was howling
The land was there they’d heard
But heaven knows
They sailed across the sea anyway,
Oh my God!
How could they know fear from paradise?
Paradise from standing still on the shore?

                                                                       

Easter Sunday

© 2000, Bar Scott ASCAP 

 

Sometimes I think to make a little sacrifice
But I forget before I do
It’s easy and easier
I could give up a mug and save a buck or two
(and give it to you)
Or give you the shirt off of my back
It’s easy and easier

Easter Sunday
Church on that day
Back out Monday
Why?
I’ll tell you why:
It’s easier

When I get rich I’ll give a lot to you
(you know I will now)
Maybe that shirt or my old shoes
It’s easy and easier

Easter Sunday
Church on that day
Back out Monday
Why?
(It’s easier)
easier, easier

Sometimes I think to make a little sacrifice
(You know I do now)
I just forget before I do
It’s easy and easier not to
easy, easier 

                                                                                               

Write Me A Love Letter

© 1995, Bar Scott ASCAP

 

I want to hear your voice and touch your hand
Lie down and hear the beating of your heart in my ear
If I could see you I would know where you are
Instead I’m hoping that you’ll

Write me a love letter tell me how you feel
Write me a love letter tell me you love me still

So many thoughts are running ‘round in my head at night
With him beside me and her face allied with yours, not mine
Every night when the darkness sets in
I lie here wishin’ that you’d

Write me a love letter tell me how you feel
Write me a love letter tell me you love me still 

Our ending had come in my heart so I turned away
In time I thought you’d change
ease the pain

So won’t you write me tell me how you feel
Write me a love letter tell me you love me

Alone again, I am alone again
Don’t turn me away,  don’t turn me away, no, no, no

Please write me tell me how you feel
Write me a love letter tell me you love me still

I want to hear your voice and touch your hand
Lie down and hear the beating of your heart in my ear

 

Buddy’s Back in Town

©2000, Bar Scott ASCAP 

 

We said good-bye to him in 1943

I told Freya Alan then
my life’s ahead of me when Buddy’s back in town!

Sinatra would sing to us each night on the radio
We would sit and hope that he’d sing “I’ll Be Seeing You”
When Buddy’s back in town

I’ll hear that train come down the track
I’ll wear lipstick ‘red-as-love’
I’ll be the first one there in a big round hat
And I will wave right back
When he’s back in town

We’d look to Orion at the same time every night
I’d find I’d be dreamin’ of my man in his sailor whites
When he gets back in town

I’ll hear that train come down the track
I’ll wear lipstick ‘red-as-love’
I’ll be the first one there in a big round hat
And I will wave right back

And then he’ll say to me
“Oh, Shirl, will you marry me?
Please, marry me?”
And then I will say to him
“Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"

I said good-bye to him in 1943
Now Buddy’s back in town

                                                                       

Like It Was

©2000, Bar Scott ASCAP   

I lie alone with just a light on
The telephone and a day-old coffee by the bed
Rehearsing every line before it’s said

I’ll let it ring and then I’ll say
That I’ve been fine and I’m so happy that you’ve been
Daddy says I play that game with him

You said, I said
Around again
Control yourself, I tell myself,
We’ll love again
Try again
Here we go again

If I’d worn a different blouse and tried not to talk so much
I know it could be like it was

Dropped by your house again this morning
The hose was out and the paper in
You’re sleepin’ in
I guess you couldn’t hear the doorbell ring

You said, I said
Around again
Control yourself, I tell myself,
We’ll love again
Try again
Here I go again

If I could touch you, and you would touch me
I swear it could be like it was
Ow! Ow!

 

Hold Your Head Up

©2000,, Bar Scott ASCAP  

Sometimes I see what is happening in my life
But my eyes don’t see and my ears won’t hear the signs you’re giving

Things aren’t always what they seem to be
Things can’t always be what used to be
No, no

One lie, one cheat, was one too many crimes
He’d hide behind that perfect smile and lie over and over

Things aren’t always what they seem to be
Things can’t always be what used to be
No, no

Hold your head up, hold your head up, high
Hold your head up, hold your head up, high
High, high, high hello

                                                                       

Cry

for Catherine and for Jim Martin

 

I heard a story a guy named Jason told
About a man he’d known
Who’d lost his wife

She fought so hard for him
But she could not hold on
She left behind his child for him to hold

When Jason told that story
I held my breath in fear
That anyone would suffer such a broken heart

And as that little child became a little girl
He loved her twice as much
She was his lover’s child

She had her mother’s smile
She had her mother’s eyes
Although she’d never cry
For fear she’d never stop

For fear

When Jason told that story
I held my breath in fear
That anyone would suffer such a broken heart
And not cry
She didn’t want to start to cry

When Jason told that story
I held my breath in fear
That anyone would suffer such a broken heart

And not cry
Cry
Cry

  

Where the Angels Meet

©2000, Bar Scott ASCAP 

for Forrest 

 

Go to sleep now
It’s time to dream
And go to where the angels meet

They’ll shower you with kisses
And shelter you from harm
And bring you safely back in to my arms

They will feed you milk and honey
From streams that flow with love
All around you stars will shine
Where the angels meet

Go to sleep now
I’ll be here when you stir
To start another day with you

Each day I’ll wonder!
Each day I’ll long to see
The places where your dreams will lead

And I will feed you milk and honey
From streams that flow with love
All around you stars will shine
Where the angels meet

So fly away, little one, you’re my angel

Go to sleep now
Find your dreams
Where the angels meet

Go to where the angels meet
Go to sleep

 

Love Is The Reason

© 2000, Bar Scott ASCAP 

 

I have caught my emotions right down under my skin
Come, my love, lie out in the open and I’ll let you in
I’ll try

I’ll find all the bruises, I’ll touch every scar,
I will make no excuses, I’ll feed you grapes and seeds
and love, love

Love is the reason I love this life, Love

If I started to show you I just may never stop
When I try to free my emotions, I feed you grapes and seeds
And love, love


You and I believe in the other side of love
The other side of love
All we really need for the other side
is love, love

Love is the reason I love this life, Love
Love is the reason I love this life, Love
Love is, Love is,
I love, Love

If I turn to you, I might run away, turn around, then run back again,
Oh, Love, love,
