Feel's like I'm getting older
I'm not afraid
although I'm worlds apart from yesterday
and yet I can't believe I'm old enough today
to be in love, and feel in love
and see if love's the way

I don't need fancy places
to spend the time,
I'm happy just to be here
with you tonight
and yet I'm not so sure
the time is really right
to be in love, ...

Today you are young

This bitter earth
What fruit it bears
What good is love
That no one shares
And if my life is like the dust
That hides the glow of a rose
What good am I
Heaven only knows

This bitter Earth
Can it be so cold
Today you're young
Too soon your old
But while a voice
Within me cries
I'm sure someone
May answer my call
And this bitter earth

I Fall in Love Too Easily

As sang beautifully and leisurely by Chet Baker:

I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast
I fall in love too terribly hard
For love to ever last

My heart should be well-schooled
'Cause I've been fooled in the past
But still I fall in love so easily
I fall in love too fast

My heart should be well-schooled
'Cause I've been fooled in the past

Beaucoup de mes amis sont venus des nuages
Avec soleil et pluie comme simples bagages.
Ils ont fait la saison des amitiés sincères
La plus belle saison des quatre de la Terre.
Ils ont cette douceur des plus beaux paysages
Et la fidélité des oiseaux de passage.
Dans leurs cœurs est gravée une infinie tendresse
Mais parfois dans leurs yeux se glisse la tristesse.

Lover Man

I huddled in the cold, rainy wind and watched everything across the sad vineyards of October in the valley. My mind was filled with that great song "Lover Man" as Billie Holiday sings it; I had my own concert in the bushes. "Someday we'll meet, and you'll dry all my tears, and whisper sweet, little things in my ear, hugging and a-kissing, oh what we've been missing, Lover Man, oh ...
