Lyrics

VENUS BUTTERFLY

Written By: Peter Sherman

Eternal child, forever wild,
She casts a spell of bright enchantment.
Here now there, without a care
For worldly rules and life’s commandment

Secret treasure, past all measure,
Hidden deep inside her chamber;
Buried long within a song
That threatens love’s exceeding danger.

She’ll be there, but only for a while.
Winter’s come and she must run and smile.
She’s on the wings that lift her when she’s down.
Forever wild, forever free.

No cocoon, she seeks the moon –
Enticing summer midnight madness
Passion calls as daylight falls,
Betraying innocence and gladness.

She feels the Venus flytrap closing in.
As fascination fades she can begin
Now to elude a lethal strong embrace –
A prison with a most beguiling face.

Escaped from trap, she needs no map
To tell her where her heart will send her.
Danger past, she’s free at last –
When love is cruel she won’t surrender

STAR

Written By: Peter Sherman

She’s an exquisite beauty
Her hair flowing down
She turns all the heads of the men in her town

She still hasn’t heard from
The man of her dreams
Who’ll win her fair hand by no unpleasant means

Some people value diamonds as a fine commodity
They sparkle here on earth as precious as can be
But the nearest thing to heaven no matter where you are:
That girl is as priceless as a sparkling star

She hopes that her lover
Can soften the pain
Of the loss of her lost love again and again

She just doesn’t know yet
How special she’ll be
When her seashell-shaped eyes look directly at me.

Some people value diamonds as a fine commodity
They sparkle here on earth as precious as can be
But the nearest thing to heaven no matter where you are:
That girl is as priceless as a sparkling star
