IS IT LOVE

Gail Marten ©2000 

 

Is it love, Is it love,        

And does it really matter?

Is it true, really true,

Or merely idle chatter?

Is it you, Is it me? 

Is it us, Is it we? Is it love?

Tell me why, Please don’t lie,

Will it fly, Specify. Is it love?

 

Are you mine, really mine,

Or someone else’s baby?

Bottom line, are you mine?

No ifs or buts or maybe.

Are you friend, Are you foe?

Is it yes, Is it no? Is it love?

Am I high, Am I low?

Should I stay, Should I go? Is it love?

 

Is it love, Is it love        

Or just a game we’re playing?

Is it true, really true

Do you mean what you’re saying?

Is it you, Is it me? 

Is it us, Is it we? Is it love?

Tell me why, Please don’t lie,

Will it fly, Specify. Is it love?

 

Are you mine, really mine,

Or someone else’s baby?

Bottom line, are you mine?

No ifs or buts or maybe.

Should I go with the flow? 

Should I care? Do I dare? Is it love?

Is it phony or real?

I don’t know, What’s the deal? Is it love?

DREAM WITH ME

Gail Marten ©2002

 

Close your eyes and dream a dream with me

At the end of day.

Catch a cloud and float above the earth

Sail the Milky Way.

 

Book a flight upon a shooting star

Move across the sky,

There is music in the silence 

It’s a cosmic lullaby.

 

bridge:

’Neath the shady sycamore

Dream a dream with me,

Possibilities unfold,

Just close your eyes and you will see.

 

Swim with shiny, silver dolphins

Through Tahiti’s blue lagoons,

Warmed by orchid scented breezes

Polynesian honeymoon

............................................................................

 

Ride the wind to Argentina, high 

Above the southern sea

Feel the rhythm of the tango

Be my partner, dance with me.

 

Join a caravan of nomads 

Winding through the desert night

In a trail of clove and cinnamon 

Toward the morning light.

 

bridge:

Skies ablaze with setting sun

Farewell to yesterday

Twilight beckons to the moon

Purple shadows paint the way.

And tomorrow at the end of day

A magic carpet ride

To imaginary places, 

We will journey you and I.
