Marina Words & Music: Christina Tracy


I thought you were my saviour and I looked for that in you

No paradise my shattered world when dreams did not come true

I thought, if I believed enough, that perfect life would build

But when you left for good I learned that love cannot be willed.

Marina, Marina, how will you ever live it down?
Marina, Marina, how will you ever live it down?

Bewildered I had wandered through those years of coming through

The past I thought would be redeemed by future thoughts of you

I thought you were the one for me, I thought you were the best

I thought there was no way that I could ever fail this test.

Marina, Marina, how will you ever live it down?
Marina, Marina, how will you ever live it down?

My failure to convince you meant a bitter loss of tears

By what I’ve gained I know that I did not waste all those years

For I have learned what love is not, and I have learned what is

And bit by bit I’ve found I can be thankful for just this.

Marina, Marina, how will you ever live it down?
Marina, Marina, how will you ever live it down?

Days in Dreamland

Days in Dreamland (Christina Tracy)


I guess I take a lot of things for granted
I guess it makes me miss what’s really there
Somehow my mind’s eye only sees what’s missing
I tend to push away the ones who care

Instead I spend my precious days in dreamland
I only seem to chase the ones who run
But you’re the one I tell myself I love, dear
The street that should go two ways just goes one

I wonder if it looks like I am sleeping
That’s when my eyes will drift away and stare
It must look like there’s secrets I am keeping
My body is the only thing that’s there

That’s ‘cause I spend my precious days in dreamland
You might assume I do it for the fun
But in my heart I’d rather live in love, dear
This place is only big enough for one

How does it stop? When will it end?

I guess I’ll go and get myself a blanket
I think I’ll make myself a cup of tea
I’m going to give my mind a small vacation
Or worrying could be the death of me

‘Cause somehow I suspect that I’ve been dreaming
I’ve spent too many hours feeling blue
I’ll give myself the kindness I would show you
If you come back I’ll treat you kindly too
I’ll give myself the kindness I would show you
If you come back I’ll treat you kindly too
