AVATAR
[E. Maguire/M.Harwood]
______________________________

You were the shooting star
I was seventeen
You were my Bonaparte
I was your Josephine
Oh my love you said
We were meant to be

You were the forest fire
I was the falling rain
You were my Zepheniah
I was your Novocaine
Don’t ever leave you said
You are all that I need

You were my shining light
A noble knight
The one in my bed
You were my Shangri-La
An avatar
The song in my head
But you put a spell on me

You were the waterfall
I was the riverbed
You were the cannonball
I was the one you said
To save you from yourself
But I couldn’t see

You were the spider’s web
I was the foolish fly
You are my love you said
I love you but you lied
And in the end I found
I was down on my knees


You were my shining light
A noble knight
The one in my bed
You were my Shangri-La
An avatar
The song in my head
But you put a spell on me
