Welcome to GOLQ 389!  There are no intentional themes, but here's a clue:  two
of the songs are posted as a tribute.  Enjoy!

You share my reverie
You're more than life to me

If by chance we meet someday
Am I supposed to talk a while
Or turn my head and walk on by
This heartache can never end
'Til you're in my arms again

I'm in that soul savin' army
Beating on that big bass drum

You won't really fall in love
For you can't take the chance
So please be honest with yourself
Don't try to fake romance

I've got your memory
Or has it got me
I really don't know, but I know
It won't let me be

He's with a beautiful chick
Every night of the week (pretty slick)
We're two poor hung up souls
Girls won't touch with ten foot poles

You're the breath that I take
You're the stars in my heaven
You're the sun when I wake

It's time to call it a day
They've burst your pretty balloon
And taken the moon away

Oh, I am so blue
When I think that you
Were once my own
My heart, how it yearns
The flame still burns
But I'm alone

When your luck is batting zero
Get your chin up off the floor
Mister, you can be a hero
You can open any door
There's nothing to it but to do it

You better ask your mama
Tell her everything is alright

I got married to the widow next door
She's been married seven times before

Yeah, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go

My darling
If I hurt you, I'm sorry
Forgive me
And please say you are mine

And another thing I
Would like to clarify
Is how can farewell be fair

Birds sing out of tune
And rain clouds hide the moon

He never drank water
He always drank wine

And when life has lost its meaning
And my dreams have been shattered by time
You touched my hand and baby you made me see
There's a future for me

I said, the first day I met you
Someday, I'm gonna catch you
Now you're here, and baby I love it
So come on and give me some of it

Wearin' her perfume, Chanel Number Five
Got to be the finest girl alive
Oh my love, oh my love
I cry for you so much
Lonely nights without sleeping
While I long for your touch

I cry myself to sleep each night
Wishing I could hold you tight
Life seems so empty since you went away

And they are mine
While tropic breezes play
While palm trees gently sway

I'm so glad I finally found you
Yes, that one in a million girls
And now with my lovin' arms around you
Honey, I can stand up and face the world

Oh, well I met her at the station
She had her baggage in her hand
Oh, well I met her at the station
She had her baggage in her hand
I said, "I love you pretty baby
I'll make you happy if I can"


A love that should have lasted years 

You say you want to hold me
And stick to me like glue
Well, hearin's deceivin'
Seein's believin'
