"You’re Almost Perfect"

Music and lyrics by Angela Verbrugge C.2017 

VERSE 

You came to me from out of the blue, 

You made my heart leap and play. 

But when the fairy dust finally settled, 

Life got in the way.

CHORUS ONE 

A1 

You’re almost perfect 

Or very nearly 

You make my heart thrill, and still 

It seems you’re not the right one, 

But I never had more fun. 

A2 

I see our future, 

And all the troubles, 

As we walk ‘round hand in hand. 

It seems you’re not the right one, 

But I hate to see you run! 

 

B

Then I scheme of smoothing out the 

wrinkles: 

Impossibilities! 

I hear our wedding guests that 

marvel 

At your charms and abilities. 

A3 

You’re almost perfect, 

I want to change you, 

But moonlight kissing, divine! 

Could you be the right one? 

I’m praying for a sign.

 

CHORUS TWO 

A1 

I think you’re perfect, 

Or very nearly, 

For someone wiser than I, 

But if you love and leave me 

Then I think I’d surely die. 

A2 

I see our future, 

So complicated, 

Yet it’s so simple, so sweet. 

I wish you were the right one, 

But I could do without the fights! 

 B

How I wish you’d be on time for 

dinner, 

Dependability! 

Despite the troubles you’re still the 

winner 

With your idiosyncrasies! 

A3 

You are not perfect, 

Neither am I so I ask you darling, 

Be mine? 

I think you are the right one… 

 

CODA

I hope that I can stand you! 

I know you are the right one, 

And that you will do just fine.

"The Night We Couldn’t Say Good Night"

by Angela Verbrugge C.2017

Magic in the air, 

Shooting stars and bright moonlight. 

We shared our secrets there, 

The night we couldn’t say good night. 

  

Oh, what a surprise! 

How my heart beat at first sight. 

Enchanted by those eyes, 

The night we couldn’t say good night. 

  

But I know, love’s a dangerous game 

If I stay, I’ll never be the same. 

But I can’t leave now, it’s much too late, 

My heart has sealed my fate. 

  

It’s like he read my mind, 

My deepest thoughts, brought to light. 

All my dreams defined, 

The night we couldn’t say goodnight. 

+++++++++++++++ 

Magic in the air 

Shooting stars and bright moonlight, 

We walked our secret path, 

The night we couldn’t say good night. 

  

Could this thing be love, 

Or just a moment’s joy? 

Is it me he’s dreaming of, 

Or am I just his toy? 

  

We lingered, lost in space and time; 

We lingered, a feeling so sublime. 

When dawn arrived that morning 

I held his hand in mine. 

  

Where do we go from here? 

Nothing’s ever felt so right. 

Shadows disappeared… 

The night we couldn’t say good night.
