songwriter (part 1) lyrics – justin hayward

a long way we have travelled
just to see your name in lights
we’re writing you this letter’cos we’re with you tonight
your mama misses you so
and your papa wants you to know
that babe
we want you to have your say
we don’t want to stand in your way
the last time that we saw you
and we heard those curtain calls
we held hands and we loved you
and we shouted for more
your mama she misses you so
and your papa wants you to know
that babe (baby) we want you to have (baby) your say (baby)we don’t want to stand in your way (baby)but call us and say
when you’re p*ssing this way
and let us still know that you care
clean sheets on the bed in your room
and a place at the table and in our hearts
every night is a first night for someone
someone’s making their debut
on starry eyes the curtain will rise
your mama she misses you so
and your papa wants you to know
that babe (baby)we want you to have (baby) your say (baby)we don’t want to stand in your way (baby)but call us and say
when you’re p*ssing this way
and let us still know that you care
clean sheets on the bed in your room
and a place at the table and in our hearts
such a long way we have travelled
just to see your name in lights
we’re writing you this letter’cos we’re with you tonight
your mama she misses you so
and your papa wants you to know
that babe (baby)we want you to have (baby) your say (baby)we don’t want to stand in your way (baby)every night is a first night for someone
someone’s making their debut
on starry eyes the curtain will rise
every night is a first night for someone
someone’s bringing the house down
we want you to know
they’re stealing the show’cos babe we don’t want to stand in your way
