A Song For Lisa

Joshua Perahia

A gentle breeze in a quiet place
Please stop the sun and make it stay
I need her light and it's warm embrace
My distant friend wants to fade away
Fade away

You carried me through the rock and roll
And never really had much to say
The years went by as they took their toll
And now we're stronger in every way
I'm like the sea when the weather's rough
There's no one here who can make me tame
A lot of change has made me tough
But over all I'm still the same

Think of the days we stood as two
Think of the nights you pulled me through
Think of all the times you were there

In a plane and looking down
Another city or so it seems
Flashing lights are all around
Beautiful girls and limousines
A patient smile and a telegram
A Sunday thought for your balcony
You often wonder just who I am
I often wonder just where I'll be

Think of the days we stood as two
Think of the nights you pulled me through
Think of all the times you were there...
