Once I would have found it hard to be now
Now I am and very soon you'll be
And you tell me time is telling
But I tell you time will tell in time

(with appologies to Sonja Kristina)

8th May 2003, 05:37
Aaaggh, yes the lovely Sonja & Curved Air....

Some whirls come in time to dream the day away
And she's so sunny is the girl you met today
Will she make it can she take it
Like to try love such a shy love

Racket back street leanin' on the wall
She reads a story of her life before a doll
Did she give love could she feel love
Did she find love was t real love.

When you smile today
Did she let you
Try to seize you didn't mean to
Make you feel so sad

Racket back street sittin' on the wall
She tells a man back she knew before a doll
When she made love she try to find love
When She gives love she will find love.

There was a lot of rocking going on that night
Cruising time for the young, bright lights
Just down past the gasworks, by the meat factory door
The five lamp boys were coming on strong
The Saturday night city beat had already started and the
The pulse of the corner boys just sprang into action
And young Billy watched it under the yellow street light
And said tonight of all nights there's gonna be a fight
