Star Song

I haven’t written a song for stardances in quite a while, and this one kind of crept up on me this evening. Perhaps its more of that Beatleish mood I’ve been in … the last one was a John-like thing, and this one seems more like a George.

for Sondra Galyn

There’s something in your eyes that makes me happy
I think it’s what you see when you see me
Behind my sad disguise I find you looking
To find the truth inside and set it free

There’s something in your smile that makes me want you
I think it’s how you know just where I stand
Inside my secret self I find you laughing
It makes me glad to know that I’m your man

And when you tell me that you love me
I realize that it is real
There is no pretense or confusion
And no question of the way I feel

There’s something in your touch that feels like sunshine
I think it’s your connection to the light
That sends a spark to deep inside my shadows
To burn away the darkness of my nights

There’s something in your laugh that makes me love you
I think it’s that you share your heart with me
And take from me the best I have to offer
Knowing that the best is yet to be

And when you tell me that you love me
I understand that it is so
There is no pretense or confusion
I don’t need to question it to know

There’s something in your eyes that makes me happy
I think it’s what you see when you see me
And there I am reflected in your vision,
The person that I know that I can be.
