Shanghai Breezes Lyrics

It's funny how you sound as
though you're right next door
When you're really half a world away
I just can't seem to find
the words I'm looking for
To say the things that I want to say
I can't remember when
I felt so close to you
It's almost more than I can bear
And though I seem half
a million miles from you
You are in my heart and living there

And the moon and the stars
are the same ones you see
It's the same old sun up in the sky
And your voice in my
ear is like heaven to me
Like the breezes here in old Shanghai

There are lovers who walk
hand in hand in the park
And lovers who walk all alone
There are lovers who lie
unafraid in the dark
and lovers who long for home
Oh I couldn't leave you
even if I wanted to
You're in my dreams and always near
And especially when I
sing the songs I wrote for you
You are in my heart and living there


Shanghai breezes cool and
clearing evening's sweet caress
Shanghai breezes soft and gentle
remind me of your tenderness

(chorus 2x)

Just like the breezes here in old Shanghai
