Where are You?  (Andy M.Stewart)

(Andy M. Stewart)

Where are you tonight I wonder
And where will you be tonight when I cry?
Will sleep for you come easy,
Though I alone can't slumber
Will you welcome in the morning
At another man's side?

How easy for you the years slipped under
And left me a shadow the sun can't dispel
I built for you a tower of love and admiration
But I set you so high I could not reach myself.

I look through my window at a world filled with strangers
The face in my mirror is the one face I know
You have taken all that's in me, so my heart is in no danger
My heart is in no danger, but I'd still like to know

If there is a silence then it can be broken
If there beats a pure heart to her I will go
And time will work its healing and the spirit will grow stronger
Ah, but in the meantime I'd still like to know.

The challenge has been interesting, but in the rush I think we've forgotten something: we haven't told Rebecca how she could have found all these things for herself!

Actually, Malcolm, I did give her instructions, but on the "Help" Forum. I also gave her a link to this thread. After all this work, I sure hope she finds it, and leaves us a message telling us so.
It's a fun challenge, isn't it?
