SUMMER FLY
(Cheryl Wheeler)

In another younger day, I could dream the time away
In the universe inside my room
And the world was really mine from June to September
And if it wasn't really so I was lucky not to know
And I was lucky not to wonder why
'Cause a pure and golden high is all that I remember
    A summer fly was buzzin' every night
    When I was young
    In the gentle world, my childlike senses knew
    And the world was just my cousin
    And the wind was just the tongue
    In the voice my lonely moments listened to

And I look at me today all the dreams have gone away
And I'm where I never thought I'd be
Seein' things I never thought I'd see happen to me
And I lay awake at night till the darkness goes to light
Hearin' voices callin' out my name
Dronin' over and again the same message to me
    Cryin' who's your partner, who's your darlin', who's your baby now?
    Who wakes up at night to pull you in
    It don't matter, you just make her lonely anyhow
    Don't know why you even try to win (repeat this chorus twice)

Subject: ADD:When Fall Comes to New England(Cheryl Wheeler)

Somebody sang this at a singaround this afternoon. Lovely song.

WHEN FALL COMES TO NEW ENGLAND
(Cheryl Wheeler)

When Fall comes to New England
The sun slants in so fine
And the air's so clear
You can almost hear the grapes grow on the vine.

The nights are sharp with starlight
And the days are cool and clean
And in the blue sky overhead
The northern geese fly south instead
And leaves are Irish Setter red
When Fall comes to New England.

When Fall comes to New England
And the wind blows off the sea
Swallows fly in a perfect sky
And the world was meant to be.

When the acorns line the walkways
Then winter can't be far
From yellow leaves a blue jay calls
Grandmothers walk out in their shawls
And chipmunks run the old stone walls
When Fall comes to New England.

The frost is on the pumpkin
The squash is off the vine
And winter warnings race across the sky
The squirrels are on to something
And they're working overtime
The foxes blink and stare and so do I.

'Cause when Fall comes to New England
Oh I can't turn away
From fading light on flying wings
And late good-byes a robin sings
And then another thousand things
When Fall comes to New England.
When Fall comes to New England...

Find "Arrow" I heard someone sing that at the Stone Church open mic in around 1987, and couldn't quite believe how good it was. Will go look for it myself.
Ans Summer Fly I heard late one night on WAMU in Washington DC, and fell in love with that one, too.

Arrow
Words And Music By
Cheryl Wheeler

I wish I could fall in love
Though it only leads to trouble, oh I know it does
Still I'd fool myself and gladly, just to feel I was
In love, in love
I wish I could feel my heartbeat rise
And gaze into some gentle, warm excited eyes
And give myself as truly as an arrow flies
In windless skies

(Chorus)
Oh I remember you in the tv light
Holding you close to me where we lay
And now I wish I knew some of those softer nights
Whispering quietly, feeling you turn to me

Only last night in the winter dark
I dreamed of how you loved, in all your innocence
And I've never known a softer warmer feeling since, or a truer heart
Maybe these dreams are leading me
Maybe love is not as gentle as my memory
Maybe time and wishful half-remembered fantasy are the greatest part

(Chorus)

Wish I could feel my heartbeat rise
And gaze into some gentle, warm excited eyes
And give myself as truly as an arrow flies
In windless skies
I wish I could fall in love
Though it only leads to trouble, oh I know it does
Still I'd fool myself and gladly just to feel I was, in love
