Dramatic Romances

1

Rapidly does life eat the time
Fancies pass as days go by
'Til we find someone we can't forget
Someone with fine features, fresh wit
And sticks to you like wet candies, and just as sweet
The jack of hearts stealing the queen's
Sly in his methods, sly in your own
Working slowly together to share the crown
Love like a thorn thrust through both your hearts
Making you one in the pain you share
Together, apart, your purpose united
Following love's torch lit
To happiness eternal
Love fusing two souls in one

2

Chasing lucky stars
Love, begone
I can't play today
The pain grows acute
My heart grows tired
Chasing lucky stars
The games play out
Ten times too many
My eyes grow weary
Watching you fly away
Chasing lucky stars
If I love you
Why can't you
Love me, too?
Why are you always
Chasing lucky stars?

3

You won't be with me
I can't live without you
You can find another girl
I won't look for anyone else
If you can learn
To live without me
Can you teach me
To stop loving you?
