LOOKING FOR VENUS

Lyrics: John Buckley McQuaid
Music: John H. Schiessler

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
