"For whom the bell tolls" as written by and Steve Edward Duren....
Jonathan:
The tarot is fate, said the gypsy queen
And she beckoned me; to glimpse my future she?d seen

She said

Gypsy to Jonathan:
Do you see what I see? Be careful to choose
Be careful what you wish for, cause it may come true
When I lay the card down will it turn up the fool?
Will it turn up sorrow? If it does then you lose

Jonathan to the Gypsy:
I?m the lost boy can you help me
Yeah, l?m the lost boy can you help me

Gypsy to Jonathan:
Then the illusion was real, a crimson idol I saw
But the higher he?d fly, then the further he?d fall

She said

Gypsy to Jonathan:
Do you see what I see? Be careful to choose
Be careful what you wish for, cause it may come true
When I lay the card down will it turn up the fool?
Will it turn up sorrow? If it does then you lose

Jonathan to the Gypsy:
I?m the lost boy can you help me
Yeah, l?m the lost boy can you help me

Jonathan to the Gypsy:
I just wanna be, I just wanna be, I just wanna be
The crimson idol of a million
I just wanna be, I just wanna be, I just wanna be
The crimson idol of a million eyes
Of a million

    General CommentAnyone noticed that the prechorus of this song is almost identical, in terms of chords and melody, to 'The Gypsy Meets The Boy' from The Crimson Idol? This came first, so I'm guessing he wrote it, found it was a bit rubbish and made it a B-side, and then decided he could do better and rewrote it.
