Hope

Forever Yours

Janis Ian/Russ Taff

I am afraid in your heart you are leaving
I may be too late to redeem
Don't go...
Let me hold love again in my arms
and you will see

These weary eyes will weep no more
These broken dreams will be restored
These broken wings will learn to soar
And I will be forever yours

They say every soul has its season
They say every heart has its spring
How long can I live without love in my arms
and still believe

These weary eyes will weep no more
These broken dreams will be restored
These broken wings will learn to soar
And I will be
Forever yours

Forever your voice in the silence
Forever your name on my lips
The darker the hour,
the brighter the wildflower blooms
with the spring's first kiss

These weary eyes will weep no more
These broken dreams will be restored
These broken wings will learn to soar
And I will be forever yours

    NEW 2022 DATE TBA. Janis has been hearing about Shalin Liu from friends for more than a decade, and it's taken this long to coordinate schedules so she could do two nights in this prestigious venue. Expect old songs, new songs, stories, and time afterward for hellos and signing whatever you bring or buy! Since she'll be there for two nights, things should get a bit more relaxed than usual - maybe an extra step out guitar solo, or an audience Q&A. Who knows?! We can promise that this ten-time-Grammy-nominee will put on a great show, with plenty of heart and soul. 8 pm show
