Lyrics

(Don't Offer Me) The Moon and Stars

Written By: Jeffrey David West

Don’t Offer Me the Moon and Stars
JD West: copyright 2012

Verse 1

You paint a picture of livin’ large
Lots of homes and fancy cars
Of places we would go
The people we would know
But I just want someone
To keep me safe and warm
Soothe me when I’m low
Make my body glow

Chorus

Don’t offer me the moon and stars
Cuz’ your arms won’t reach that far
Hold me, make me feel
That your love is real

Don’t talk about peaches and cream
Or some crazy wild eyed scheme
Hatched in a downtown bar
Don’t offer me the moon and stars

Verse 2

There ain’t nothin’ you have to prove
Ain’t nowhere you gotta move
When all you need to start
Is right inside your heart
So come on off your throne
Ain’t nothin’ you could own
Or enough money in the world
To buy this girl

My Love Is Like The Wind

Written By: Jeffrey David West

My Love is Like the Wind

Verse I

When I first met you
You were so cool
Playin’ tricks on your friends
Playin’ with my heart too…..
I ain’t got time for games
I might be persuaded to rearrange
Some things for someone who
Needs me….

Chorus

My love is like the wind
You can’t touch it
But you will feel it
When it blows
Into your heart
It will free you
And lift you up
To heaven.....like the wind

Verse II

Ask yourself the question
What you gonna do?
Now that we’re alone
And I’m standin’ in front of you
It’s time to play your cards
It’s time to show your hand
You could be holdin’ a queen
Right now……

Chorus

Bridge

I’m so tired of
Being lonely
Lookin’ for the answer
You could be my
One and only
The only heart I’m after

Repeat Chorus…….out
