Barbra Streisand – Places that Belong to You

1 Nov

Mornings, evenings
Days that hurried past
Dreams that should have lasted
Moments, hours
Slipping by as we
Told each other secrets.

Somehow I’ll never let go of the memories
Something always seems to remind me
Of how it was
of what it was
When it was
All there was.

Laughter, love songs
Footsteps that I hear
Make me think you’re near me
Poems, pictures
Letters never mailed
Boats that never sailed.

Remember that even though we can’t be together
We’re more for having loved one another
We shared the sky
We learned to fly
Someday when someone else’s arms are around us
When time has put some distance between us
The years will kindly show
How memories come and go
They ebb and flow like the tides.

There are quiet places in my heart
Ever since we’ve parted
Gentle, tender
Traces of a song
Places that belong to you.

Barbra Streisand – Down With Love –

2 Aug

Down with love the flowers and rice and shoes
Down with love the root of all midnight blues
Down with things that give you that well-known ping
Take that moon wrap it in cellophane

Down with love let’s liquidate all its friends
Moon and June and roses and rainbow’s ends
Down with songs that moan about night and day
Down with love yes take it away, away

Away
Far away
Give it back to the birds and bees and the Viennese

Down with eyes romantic and stupid
Down with sighs and down with cupid
Brother let’s stuff that dove
Down with love

Down with love let’s liquidate all its friends
The moons the Junes the roses and rainbow’s ends
Down with songs that moan about night and day
Down with love yes take it away, away

Far away
So very, very far away
Give it back to the birds and the bees and especially the Viennese

Down with eyes romantic and stupid
Down with sighs and down with cupid
Brother let’s stuff that dove
Down with love
