Umm...I think that would be some other Amy, Amos. Got to be. Anyway, I'm not "harboring" Amy, I'm just a bit distracted by her.

Tweed has requested the lyrics I wrote in honour of Winona Ryder. Here they are:

        Perfect World (Winona)                                 
                                                               
I could take you out tonight
In a perfect world
In the glow of the harbour lights
In a perfect world
We would be the best of friends
To the limit, to the end
And never fall out of love again
Winona!

I could help you remove your boots
In a perfect world
Help you out of your parachute
In a perfect world
We could dance, baby, we could fly
Pirouette across the sky
Under the moonbeams you and I
Winona!

In a perfect world you would be my girl...

I could hold your hand in mine
In a perfect world
I could pour you a glass of wine
In a perfect world
I could even bite your neck
Hoist your sails and swab your deck
Go out to dinner and write the check
Winona!

I could have you by my side
In a perfect world
You could be my gypsy bride
In a perfect world
Under the spreading chestnut tree
There on the clover we would be
Together unto eternity
Winona!

In a perfect world you would be my girl...

Then everything would be so fine
In a perfect world
I'd be yours and you'd be mine
In a perfect world
Everybody would be in love
From the valley to the stars above
But it's you I'd be thinkin' of
Winona!

And What a movie we could make
In a perfect world
What a scene, baby, what a take
In a perfect world
Better than Bogart and Bacall
Better than Brando ten feet tall
Smokin' like a cannonball
Winona!

In a perfect world you would be my girl...
In my dreams it's a perfect world...
And in a perfect world you would be my
girl...

The song was written in the mid-90's, and Winona was in a lot of great movies at the time. The "bite your neck" line was inspired by seeing her in "Bram Stoker's Dracula". That and "Little Women" remain my all time favorite Winona movies. I'll watch practically anything if it's got Winona Ryder in it.
