Liner Notes: 

For a female singer.

I've wanted to do this lyric for a long time. My favorite movie is Casablanca. Hope you like this!

Please contact me if you'd like to set it to music.

Thanks,

Doug

Lyrics: 

Verse 1
You told me to call you Bogie
Said you’d worked on a movie or two
You didn’t look like a leading man
But I fell in love with you
When you talked your lips barely moved
A cigarette dangled there
Your smile curled like a scowl
You walked as if gliding on air

(Chorus)
The wind is blowing like the first wind
Stars are shedding tears of light
I’m racing moonbeams into the dark
Chasing your ghost all night

Verse 2
You spoke of falcons and treasures
Riverboats and Paris, France
I didn’t hear the half of it
Your eyes held me in a trance
You were kind beneath your hardness
And vulnerable way down deep
Your touch set my soul on fire
Life was more like a dream than sleep

(Chorus)
The wind is blowing like the first wind
Stars are shedding tears of light
I’m racing moonbeams into the dark
Chasing your ghost all night

(Bridge)
We had a beautiful friendship
We had so much more
They told me you’d water my desert forever
I was misinformed

Verse 3
You dimmed the lights to work magic
Then you always had to go
I’d say, “Anytime you need me…
Put your lips together and blow”
Now I’m whistling at the graveyard
Hoping to raise the dead
I know the curtain’s closed but…
I can’t get you out of my head

(Chorus)
The wind is blowing like the first wind
Stars are shedding tears of light
I’m racing moonbeams into the dark
Chasing your ghost all night
(Repeat)
