Lyrics

Beating Of My Heart

Written By: Phoebe Claggett

Beating Of My Heart

Beating Of My Heart

I've never been one to say just how I feel,
I've never been one to show it.
But when I'm with you, it's written on my face,
And it'd take a fool not to notice.

I try to hide it,
at least disguise it -
under the rhythm of our conversation..
But I can't fight it,
I can't deny it -
I think I've used up all my patience.

CHORUS:
Can't you tell by the beating of my heart -
It's like a drum going boom boom boom.
Can't you hear it when we're standing at the bar -
over the music, going boom boom boom.

Was I that obvious last night, when we were dancing real close,
And you put your arms around me tight,
I got so nervous I was steppin' on your toes..
We walked outside for a breath of air, and no one else was around..
you put your coat across my shoulders.. leaned in without a sound...

CHORUS

Bridge:
I tried to play it cool...
But when I'm with you,
My heart betrays me - you drive me crazy...

CHORUS

Rocketship

Written By: Phoebe Claggett

Where is my rocketship - to whisk me away -
into the starry sea of satellites
on silver string, like stars strung tight -
over the world.

Here comes my rocketship - descends from the clouds,
over the city lights that shine so bright..
into my yard, I step outside.. Oh,
What a beautiful sight..

And off, off we go...
And you take me away into the night, into the Milky Way.
Oh, I'm flying high - my hair catching diamonds as they fall from the sky..

Goodnight sweet rocketship, and thanks for the ride...
Maybe we'll meet again beyond the moon,
midst shining lights and the silver spoon,
over the world...

And off, off we'll go...
And you take me away into the night, into the Milky Way.
Oh, I'm flying high - my hair catching diamonds as they fall from the sky..

Goodbye sweet rocketship, goodbye.
Goodbye.
