Elizabeth Taylor


Today is Elizabeth Taylor's Birthday.
Alan has composed a beautiful
new song in her honor:


THOSE VIOLET EYES
(for Elizabeth Taylor)

There are many things we could remember her for.
The way she's worn the world in style,
the wealth of her love,
her beautiful smile.
But I'll recall, I will remember,
oh most of all
the look of wonder and surprise
In those violet eyes.

They look with laughter and longing,
they've seen the world go by.
They've seen it all, the rise and fall,
they know the truth behind the lies.
And so she sighs when she remembers.
Oh, the light that shines
through those violet eyes.
Oh, the light that shines!

Refrain:
You can wait so long
Oh, for people to really change.
She has waited her whole lifetime
so it seems.
Then one day she just woke up
and she knew she wasn't the same.
That's the moment when she walked
right into her dreams.

Lavender and lace and shades of Grace,
the colors of twilight rush in.
Amethyst and gold, the treasures she holds,
her thoughts shine like diamonds, like stars.
Some stars are born, they shine forever...
We know she will; the soul never dies.
And oh the soul that shines through those violet eyes.
Oh the soul that shines through those lovely violet eyes.

Refrain:
Oh you can wait just so long
for people to really change.
She has waited her whole lifetime
so it seems.
Till one day she woke up
and she knew she wasn't the same.
That's the moment when she walked
right into her dreams.

Lavender and lace and shades Grace,
the colors of twilight rush in.
Amethyst and gold, the treasures she holds,
her thoughts shine like diamonds, like stars.
Some stars are born and they shine forever...
She knows she will; her soul never dies.
And oh the soul that shines through those violet eyes.
Oh the soul that shines through those lovely violet eyes.
