Thomas Dolby
If love is all you're missing,
look into your heart:
Is anybody home?
This flat old Earth
is in your gentle hands
And then I'll be with you
and I won't scare myself
And I remember, I remember, I remember
the wide Brazilian sky that swallowed you

Thomas Morgan Robertson (born 14 October 1958), known by the stage name Thomas Dolby, is an English musician, producer, entrepreneur and teacher.

Quotes[edit]

  • The Earth can be any shape you want it
    any shape at all
    Dark and cold or bright and warm
    long or thin or small

    If love is all you're missing
    look into your heart:
    Is anybody home?

    There are stones buried in your soul

    In time you'll come to understand
    this flat old Earth is in your gentle hands
  • I scare myself just thinking about you
    I scare myself when I'm without you
    I scare myself, the moment that you're gone
    I scare myself when I let my thoughts run

    But it's oh so very different when we're together
    And I'm so, so, so much calmer, I feel better
    'Cause the stars already crossed our paths forever
    And the sooner that we realize it, the better

    And then I'll be with you and I won't scare myself
    And I'll know what to do and I won't scare myself
    And my thoughts will run and I won't scare myself
    And I'll think of you and I won't scare myself
  • Some people sing love songs
    Everybody's got one
    This isn't my love song
    It's more like my love-gone-wrong song
    She came to breakfast
    And stayed a week
    But the lie detectors
    Broke down each time she tried to speak
    Broke down when she said:
    "You came close
    Close but no cigar
    You didn't miss by far
    You know you came this close
    Close but no cigar."
    I remember, I remember, I remember
    The promise in your eyes
    As black as the night I drove you to the airport
    And I remember, I remember, I remember
    The wide Brazilian sky that swallowed you

    Then I hit thirty
    Guess I can't complain
    But I must have been lonely
    The night I bumped into Lorraine
    She came for coffee
    And stayed all night
    But the lie detectors
    Broke down every time I tried to smile
    Broke down like the story of my life
    And each dream I missed by half a mile
    Broke down when I told her:
    "You came close
    Close but no cigar
    You didn't miss by far
    You know you came this close
    Close but no cigar."
