Lyrics

I'm In Love

Written By: Mark Piro

Oh since she left me
All the bluebirds flew away, they didn’t stay
They kept me on the run, but they’ll be coming soon not far too long
Oh since she left me
All the bluebirds flew away
I couldn’t hold her in my arms again
Everything is better when I’m in love
I’m in love

Oh… I’m in love again
I can’t rid myself of this frustration, or is it just imagination?

Come back to see me, before you get too far away
I couldn’t stand if you were lonely too, when all I do is think of you
Oh since she left me, all the bluebirds flew her back again, and put her in my arms again
It’s gonna be much better when I’m in love.
I’m in love

Standing In The Rain

Written By: Mark Piro

Well I was standing in the rain
Walking in the rain
Flying in the rain with you
My heart hasn’t touched the ground yet
Since I was standing in the rain with you

Well we were walking hand in hand
Under an umbrella
Looking for a place to run and hide
Then I saw you near me
And I never wanted to leave your side

Well shouldn’t it be
Couldn’t it be?
The only girl I’ll ever love will never love me so
And if by chance she leaves me
She’ll have the heart to never let me go.

Sleep The Day Away

Written By: Mark Piro

Times keep changing, we’re left anticipating what might be in store for us.
Life’s a complicated game. One in which we all must play.
We need a break don’t hesitate to fold.

Make a decision, the world you know is gone in an instant.
Slow your pace, live the way you want to.

Sleep the day away.
Forget your problems, do what you want to do.
Take some comfort in knowing that no matter what you do the world ain’t gonna start without you.

Moving so fast, don’t take in much of the life I lead.
What will I remember when I’m 73? Memories won’t fill my head.
