"Cover" as written by Johnny Green and Edward Heyman....
when you're happy then i'm happy
and my eyes will surely tear
it's not easy being happy
and we'll both be made fun of
i'm not sickly but i could be
if i followed trends more closely
they'll keep taunting
i'll stay happy
i can still feel your coat sleeve
shallow! stay out! you know better!
like a clear glass when i'm full up i look empty
and wishing i could know just for certain
what you know for sure
like the snap of a mind made up this could hurt me
this wishing i could know just for certain
what you know for sure
it's never one thing...
it's all at once
and it makes my breathing
harder than you know
when i know for certain that you know for sure
out on a line all alone so cover me
i'll move along but it's nothing that i know
so cover me
out of my mind and you know so cover me
i'll take the hard road and learn it as i move
straight and slow...
...think of the scenery...
