Being loved by you

Being loved by you made everything so easy
made the highest mountains fall down to my feet
being with you made every day a new day
made every day the one way to be for two

1) I left the rock ’n‘ roll hall
headed for an early train
the cool queen of my hot dreams was walking
beside me through the early morning rain
and from the first moment that I saw her
I knew there was a new life to start
you looked at me and sent your letters
from your eyes to my heart
to that mail-box called heart

Being loved by you…

2) My mind is still crawling in your cages
I hear lonesome Coco crying his Lonesome Coco Blues
I feel the hour right before the early morning
when I had to leave, when I got that Hollywood Blues
I know someday I will be through with your body
I know someday I will be through with your lies
I know someday I will be through with your cool mystery
but I don’t know if I’ll ever get through with your eyes
don’t know if I’ll ever get through with your eyes

Being loved by you…
