Thru Maritime Miles 7-A Love Song 2

Dear Davey, my darling, my bright pirate boy Your lips are the prize in the night of my joy Your eyes can erase me or teach me the cure Of how you can face me by all you endure Your sigh is the sign of a man who is lost A why on the line of a ban that you crossed The cry of goodbye is the fear that you face A try to get by with a beer you displace Your math is confused by the lies in your good The path you abused by the why’s in your should The man in your head is the boy in your heart Who flies on ahead for the joy on his part The stop what you do is the pause that you need The matter of two is the cause you should heed Your joy is undone by the impulse to cheat By raising your pulse for the sake of your beat The glad if you could is the act you withstood The had you been good for the fact that you should The ship that you bossed with our dime in the bank Is something you lost in the time that it sank The romance we shared is the one that you sought The dance that we dared for the fun that is not The flip in our fortune was done by your hand The dip in our portion you won for the band Dear Davey, my dear one, my pride and my joy The thrill of your lip is the side you employ The hill we must climb is no tall mountain peak But merely a time to be all that you seek The strength you must find is the will to be true The length of your life on a hill just for you The tally you score is the streak you begin By which you may soar to the peak of a win To do what you can is fulfilling and right To prove you're a man who is willing to fight The courage to care is the best way to find The urge that is there to be honest and kind The values we choose are the dues of success The virtues we use in the blues we address Your love is the news that will lead me to find The load that I lose when I need to unwind How long I have waited for someone like you And yet I was dated by men who withdrew The lady you mated is now in control By how she has gated the heart that is full Dear Davey, my pirate, my sweet honeycake Your love in my life is no feat of mistake Your lip is my trip on an ocean of blue The reason I flip with emotion for you.
