Frankie & Johnny I

All stories of true love are bold
My lover left me sad and cold
He said he’d never turn his eye
As long as stars were in the sky
His arms would hold me every hour
How magical his power
And stars were in the sky

Each week that passed reminded me
Of stories read of harmony
Of dreams I’d never thought could be
We passed each day as carelessly
As though we’d never be apart
How happy was my heart
And stars were in the sky

To lose your life, yet stay alive
Oh what a way to die

For every night and every day
He’d chase all of my cares away
But quiet as my watching eyes
She gathered him to my surprise
She took the love that I would share
And left me standing there
And stars were in the sky

To lose your life, yet stay alive
Oh what a way to die
And stars were in the sky
