I had this title in my files for awhile and kept thinking about it. I had to rework it extensively to get it to jell. Kinda like love. CMA

Heart In The Clouds
_________________Verse/Chorus
Verse 1:
She not just a face in the crowd
She comes to me across the room
And says to me it’s way too loud
Let’s go out to where there’s a moon
She feels like love, is it her perfume
Or is my heart in the clouds

Verse 2:
She smiles at me, uplifts her brows
She says you’re what I’m looking for
I smile but my mind shouting wow
And then my heart opens the door
Is this romance forevermore
Or is my heart in the clouds

Chorus 1:
Love’s changing fast, it seems unreal
And I hoping she’s moving in
Do I still have my appeal
Or is my heart in the clouds
Alas her love for me’s wearing thin
How much of my heart will she steal
Why do I keep giving in
And why’s my heart in the clouds

Verse 3:
Now she takes more than is allowed
Though love truly jelled at the start
But I know truth must be avowed
Despite I’m still broken-hearted
It’s done, move on, love fell apart
Or is my heart in the clouds

Chorus 2:
Things moved too fast, it was unreal
And it’s best she’s not moving in
As I have lost my appeal
But why’s my heart in the clouds
Alas for her my love’s worn thin
How much of my heart did she steal
Why did I keep giving in
And why’s my heart in the clouds

Coda:
Why’s my heart in the clouds
Why’s my heart still... in the clouds

This is nice...lets hope the relationship lasted longer than 3 minutes...lol just kidding...but its actually very cool that we saw the relationship form, blossom, wilt and crumble...all in the same song. Emotions worked as did the insecurity of the confidence in the relationship. Nice job.

Yea Bunny, the affair ended pretty quickly... but the broken-heart remains. Thanks for your positive comments.
