Love From Room 109 At The Islander
(On Pacific Coast Highway)

I was lost without a song without a melody
You came into my hotel life
You made my room a home
Ah now, mama, don't you know what you've done

Ah, you made the sunshine in the city
Oh, you warmed my heart
You changed an old man filled with pity
Back to a child again
Ah now, mama, can't you see what you've done

So tell me darlin' if the feeling's wrong
Don't waste another day
Lord, the saddest thing I've ever known
Was to watch it die away
Ah now, mama, don't you lie don't you lie

Oh, how can my giving find the rhythm and the time of you
Unless you sing your songs to me
The smell of your sweet skin does entangle my dream
Oh may I stand here awhile living your smile

Oh, how could you ever know what you've done
You warmed my heart when I was so all alone
But all I have to give
Are my dreams of coming and going forever
Inside the rivers of time you'll find me waiting
For you to find peace in your mind
So we can love again

I feel what you feel,
If you feel what you feel,
And I see what you see,
If you see what you see,
So it goes on and on
On it goes, on and on

It's my heart and your heart,
It's our hearts together,
You sing and I'll bring,
We'll both love together,
And all I know is let it grow
All you'll find is peace of mind.
