A top flat in bayswater, Rebecca would be doing my hair
We had so much fun she sang all of the words to my song
as it played on the player
She'd give me her bed for the night, she would feed me and clothe me and such
I'd laugh and say, when the light hits that way
you remind me of Shirley Maclaine

When will I see you again
When will we sing silly harmonies into the night?
I try and try but I can't help missing you
I wonder where you are now

We had us a dream back then, when we got back the things that were stole
We'd have an old fashioned party, an orchestra, long gowns
And we'd be the belles of the ball
And we'd dance to the emperor's waltz, beacuse that was her favourite song
I'd laugh and say, when the light hits that way
you remind me of Shirley Maclaine

When will I see you again
When will we sing silly harmonies into the night?
I try and try but I can't help missing you
I wonder where you are now

Are you an angel, have you been reborn?
Did you find your buddha, was it worth all the toil?
I write this 'cause I miss you and
there's nothing more I can do

When will I see you again
When will we sing silly harmonies into the night?
I try and try but I can't help missing you
I wonder where you are now

Now the top flat is empty, but our rare old times call from the walls
And I hope that wherever you are you're alright
And I'll still have our ball
And we'll dance to the emperor's waltz because that was your favourite tune
I'd laugh and say, when the light hits that way
You remind me of Shirley Maclaine

When will I see you again
When will we sing silly harmonies into the night?
I try and try but I can't help missing you
I wonder where you are now.

    My OpinionGreat song for a lost friend. Probably captured her friend quite well. It is a celebration of a friendship remembered and on going through memory.
