Valerie, please believe
It never could work out
The time to make plans
Has passed, faded away
Ooh, the way you look
Makes my starry eyes shiver
Then I look away
Too much for one day

One thing we share
Is an ideal of beauty
Treasure so rare
That even devils might care

Your swimming-pool eyes
In sea breezes they flutter
The coconut tears
Heavy-lidded, they shed
Swaying palms at your feet
You're the pride of your street
While you worship the sun
Summer lover of fun

Gold number with neighbours
Who said that you'll go far?
Maybe someday be a star
A fast mover like you
And your dreams will all come true

All of my hope
And my inspiration
I drew from you
Our life's pattern's drawn in sand
But the winds could not erase
The memory of your face

Deep in the night
Plying very strange cargo
Our soul-ships pass by
Solo trips to the stars in the sky
Gliding so far that the eye cannot follow
Where do they go, we'll never know

Songwriters
FERRY, BRYAN
