You've been a long way away
It's awfully easy to lie when you know...
This can't last
There's so much that I want to say to...
So very much
I had no thoughts at all
But I wish you'd stop talking
I imagined him holding me in his arms
Do you know
Isn't it awful about people meaning to...
That week was misery
Come and sit by the fire in the library...
I had no premonitions
Alec and me
We had such fun
You know what's happened
We were very gay during lunch and talked...
Whatever your dream was
I suppose it's a good thing to be...
Into the darkness
But my birthday's in June
I felt suddenly quite wildly happy
What a nice looking man
Have you any brandy
You're both very naughty
How can you be so silly
Would you mind
I'm afraid you don't
Its been so very nice
No one was
Nothing to worry about
My license does not permit me to serve...
Godby to come here for a moment
Both of you
If them sandwiches were made this...
Do you remember
I walked for a long while
