I am looking for the lyrics for the song called "The Reward" by
Gay & Terry Woods. I did try doing an on-line search on Google but could not find it. I typed in something like lyrics for song called, "The Reward" by Gay & Terry Woods. It brought me to the song itself and other information about Gay & Terry Woods but I could not seem to find the lyrics anywhere on my search. I have listened to the song of course but cannot seem to get all the lyrics.

So if anyone has the exact lyrics of this song I would appreciate it If you would type them up and post it here.

Thank you in advance.

I couldn’t find any “official” lyrics either, so I did my best to transcribe this by listening to it on Spotify. There are still a couple of unknown words:


THE REWARD
As recorded by Gay and Terry Woods on “Tender Hooks” (1978)

Pretty frost on the window, the snow in my heart,
You’re leavin’ tomorrow on a late mornin’ plane.
I’d stayed awake all night to be close to you,
But you didn’t realize I was fallin’ in love with you.

I didn’t see this ... comin’; it took me unaware
Out under the street lights in those ... blue skies.
You awoke my sleepin’ heart, started all these foolish dreams,
And you didn’t realize I was fallin’ in love with you.

Oh, is this the reward: just a broken heart,
For lovin’ you, for lovin’ you?

I thought I had true love till you brought this new love,
Then you flew from the island, took my heart away with you.
Now I still see your face each time I close my eyes,
And you’ll never realize I fell in love with you.

Oh, is this the reward: just a broken heart,
For lovin’ you, for lovin’ you?

Thank you Jim for taking the time to write out the lyrics.

I'm just wondering however does Gay Woods sing "Out under the street lights in those blue skies?"

I listened to the song again but couldn't quite make out if that is the exact words on that line?   Could you be under the street lights in blue skies?

Thank you,
Linda

The eBay auction 153095074575 displays a lyrics sheet from the album, but in a poor resolution. I read the lyrics shown there as

THE REWARD
As recorded by Gay and Terry Woods on “Tender Hooks” (1978)

Pretty frost on the window, there's snow in my heart,
You’re leavin’ tomorrow on a late-mornin’ plane.
I stayed awake all night to be close to you,
But you didn’t realize I was falling in love with you.

I didn’t see this one coming; it took me unaware
Out under the street lights and those dusty blue skies.
You awoke my sleeping heart, started all these foolish dreams,
And you didn’t realize I was fallin’ in love with you.

Oh, is this the reward: just a broken heart,
For loving you, for loving you?

I thought I had true love till you brought this new love,
Then you flew from the island, took my heart away with you.
Now I still see your face each time I close my eyes,
And you’ll never realize I fell in love with you.

Oh, is this the reward: just a broken heart,
For lovin’ you, for lovin’ you?

So, now I've got the album with the actual lyrics sheet. The main difference is "stars" instead of "skies" in the second verse:

THE REWARD
As recorded by Gay and Terry Woods on “Tender Hooks” (1978)

Pretty frost on the window, there's snow in my heart,
You’re leavin’ tomorrow on a late-mornin’ plane.
I stayed awake all night to be close to you,
But you didn’t realise I was falling in love with you.

I didn’t see this one coming; it took me unawares.
Out under the street lights and those dusty blue stars.
You awoke my sleeping heart, started all these foolish dreams,
And you didn’t realize I was fallin’ in love with you.

O is this the reward: just a broken heart
For loving you, for loving you?

I thought I had true love till you brought this new love,
Then you flew from the island, took my heart away with you.
Now I still see your face each time I close my eyes,
And you’ll never realise I fell in love with you.

Oh, is this the reward: just a broken heart,
For lovin’ you, for lovin’ you?
