Over There

I though I loved you
I crossed the seven seas
Just to see you

I thought I wanted you
I thought I needed you

I thought my heart lies with you
But my heart lies over the Pond

Not on the lit up streets of New York
Not on the Hollywood walk of Fame

It lies with my family
From the dust under the piano
From the elms in the yard
From the smiles of my parents
In that small country mansion

I thought I wanted you
I thought I needed you

I thought my heart was with you
But my heart lies over the Pond

I saw you
I thought your eyes were diamonds
But they didn’t shimmer

I thought you would hug me once
But you never did

I thought you would look at me
Not my wallet

I thought my heart was with you
But my heart lies over the Pond

You lured me
Onto that steamer of sorrow
Into those dim lit city streets

I thought you would love my heart
Not my wallet

You never loved me
Never kissed me
Never looked at me

When I started singing the Hometown blues you shed no tears
You couldn’t care less

I thought my heart was with you
But my heart lies over the Pond

You lured me like Medusa
Where to

I thought I wanted you
I thought I needed you

I thought love and money were different
I was wrong

I thought my heart was with you
But my heart lies over the Pond
