Reinhard Lyr Add: The Reward (Gay & Terry Woods) (5) Lyr Add: THE REWARD (Gay & Terry Woods) 12 Oct 18


So, now I've got the album with the actual lyrics sheet. The main difference is "stars" instead of "skies" in the second verse:

THE REWARD
As recorded by Gay and Terry Woods on “Tender Hooks” (1978)

Pretty frost on the window, there's snow in my heart,
You’re leavin’ tomorrow on a late-mornin’ plane.
I stayed awake all night to be close to you,
But you didn’t realise I was falling in love with you.

I didn’t see this one coming; it took me unawares.
Out under the street lights and those dusty blue stars.
You awoke my sleeping heart, started all these foolish dreams,
And you didn’t realize I was fallin’ in love with you.

O is this the reward: just a broken heart
For loving you, for loving you?

I thought I had true love till you brought this new love,
Then you flew from the island, took my heart away with you.
Now I still see your face each time I close my eyes,
And you’ll never realise I fell in love with you.

Oh, is this the reward: just a broken heart,
For lovin’ you, for lovin’ you?
