Lyrics: John Buckley McQuaid

Music: John H. Schiessler

LOOKING  FOR  VENUS

Bright were the lights of the city below

Mad, magic carpet of sequins and snow

Many a long, lonely lifetime ago

When we all seemed to know what to do

 

Kisses and kites on the side of a hill

Diapers and diamonds and time standing still

Patience a virtue we wanted to kill

We were young and we knew what we knew

 

People in houses, people in bars

People out driving around in their cars

Eyes full of longing stared at the stars

Looking for Venus, married to Mars

 

Strummers and drummers and summers and springs

Autumns and winters and puppets on strings

Poets and painters and horses with wings

I was there so I know that it’s true

 

People in houses, people in bars

People out driving around in their cars

Eyes full of longing stared at the stars

People in houses, people in bars

People out driving around in their cars

Eyes full of longing stared at the stars

Looking for Venus, married to Mars

 

Looking for Venus, married to Mars

Looking for Venus, married to Mars

Looking for Venus, married to Mars

Looking for Venus, married to Mars

Looking for, looking for Venus

Looking for Venus, married to Mars

Looking for Venus, married to Mars

Looking for Venus, married to Mars

Looking for Venus, married to Mars

Looking for Venus, married to Mars

Looking for Venus, married to Mars
