Venus and Me 

When you’ve got time, time to burn 
listening to the world 
Listen to it’s song 
Can you forgive, forgiveness is everything 
Heal it’s broken wing 
Help it fly again 

When you’ve got love 
so much love to give 
Reaching out to touch 
It doesn’t seem too much 
It gives so much peace 
With nothing in your wake 
A cold and honest truth 
We’ve so much more to lose 

High above the moon as we watch the night unfurl 
Lovely Venus shines on the lonely boys and girls 
She’s a sapphire, she’s a diamond,  she’s a pearl 

Feel the warmth 
And the still of the night 
The stars all shining bright 
and lovely Venus and me 

Theres no sound, no talk, no sermons heard 
no spiel, no song, no mockingbird 
No speech, no voices anywhere in the world  
Theres no sound, no talk, no sermons heard 
no spiel, no song, no mockingbird 
No speech, no voices anywhere in the world
