Lyrics

LOVE OASIS
Music & Lyrics by Roger Bolt
Co-arranged with JoAnna Noble

When you're alone on a moon lit night,
And a voice from within says this isn't right.
Call out to me and I'll be there.
I'll come to you on the soft night air.

(Chorus)
I know a place, a love oasis,
Where we can show our hidden faces,
Love is born in secret places,
Where two are one, in our love oasis.

I'm alone like you because I'm afraid
But love is a gift you can't masquerade
Time stands still when we're apart
Release me from this lonely heart.

Chorus; With youÃ?Â?

(Bridge)
This feeling is real and always rare,
It's the nature of love that we must share
Our chance together we must take,
Let go of fear for love to awake.
A lovers embrace is always divine,
In our secret place our hearts will find,
All we need to get us through,
Is you holding me,
And me loving you.

Repeat first verse and Chorus out.

Here is a well-crafted song with an intriguing melody, augmented by stellar vocals and harmonies. The male/female vocals complement each other in a spectacular way (you holding me/me loving you) - nicely executed! There are some really creative rhymes in this song. My favorites: afraid/masquerade; oasis/places, rare/share. The guitar and bass are nicely played and mixed and the flute solo and vocal latin-scat (?) are the icing on the cake. Great job on this song!
