Loneliness In Love by Jez Farmer

Loneliness appeared from nowhere
My heart lost, love a distant care
I can’t sense your hand touching mine
Feelings can’t weaken love divine
But it’s hard to remember that
When brain dictates the heart feels flat
Can’t see the love to keep us strong
It’s hard, around me all feels wrong
There is nothing more I can do
But write the words my love to you
But are these simple words enough
All I can do is write this stuff
For deep in my heart I do know
That bad days come but they must go

Where’re You Are by Jez Farmer

My heart belongs where’re you are,
And while we danced to old love songs,
Your eyes revealed the brightest star,
Where’re you are my heart belongs.
We sealed our love in kisses sweet,
The moonlight shining high above,
As if she knew of our retreat
In kisses sweet, we sealed our love.
With hand in hand we watched the dawn,
Before we walked the barren sand,
Towards the future found the morn
We watched the dawn with hand in hand.
And now while thinking of darling you,
I know my dreams have all come true
