She Waits for You

She's standing in the midnight mist
wandering about the place
thinking of you all the time
watching for any flash of lights
to say that you're awake

Pining night and day,
you're always on her mind
she writes your name in cursive
over and over
her sweetest desire is to make you

She stood a few steps away from you
just last week in that bookstore
in the sparkling, oceany, New England town
and whispered your name
but, mistaking her for someone else
you put the book back down
and walked away

She broke a little that day
but she's pretty used to it by now
and so much tougher than her delicate beating would indicate
you can try to ignore her
but she'll never go away

she's sneaky like that
she'll just come back again
you're more tired of not living your dreams
and more ready to listen

Your Heart Prays for Rain (song)

Some hearts pray for sunshine
and some hearts pray for wind
some hearts wish for calm clear days
to let more light fall in

Some hearts pray for green leaves
dancing in the sun
but yours needs water, baby
its dance has just begun

I hate to break it to you,
but your heart prays for rain

if hearts can ever have a chance
to glisten, glow and gleam
to dance alone under the stars
and not be what they seem

if they will ever know the day
they have to know the night
they have to get it wrong a lot
if they'll ever get it right

after every broken heart
kings horses and his men
come riding into town
some grey day
and set it right again

your heart's on a journey brilliant
courage is its name
your heart knows just what it needs
and your heart prays for rain
