Commentary
Dedicated to the Greek Goddess.

I am so proud of the last 4 lines of this song.


Steady, her gaze which tells me stay

so softly, calming my urge to run away.

Wherever she should be

- seems not such a bad place for a shy boy lost like me.


Jet black, her eyes which so disarm me.

Certain am I that she won't harm me.

She enslaves me because she sets me free.

- seems not such a bad plight for a shy boy lost like me.


I think I'll stay, just for a little while, I think I'll stay.


Watching her as she watches me

astonished by what she chooses to see.

There must be some mistake.

I pinch the shy boy lost and find that I'm awake.


Gently she smiles and waves sweep through.

I'm shaking.

My heart's a kangaroo

and still she views me constantly.

 - seems not such a bad thing for a shy boy lost like me.


Grinning like a circus clown I float and glow my way back home

impatient for tomorrow's dreams to rise.

Will she send me soaring gaping-mouthed and seeing nothing else?

Will she once more find me with her eyes?
