  • Joanna
    I can't forget the one they call Joanna
    We owned the summer, hand in hand Joanna
    And now she's always just a tear away
    Goodbye you, you long lost summer
    Leaving me behind you
    Revealing things for lovers that may find you
    I still hang on to every word that day, you passed my way
    Joanna
    You made the man a child again, so sweetly
    He breathed your smile
    Lived in your eyes completely
    And on his heart there's still a trace of you
    I love you but nothing in this world could make you mine
    Yet still in time
    Joanna
    Joanna, you may remember me and change your mind

    I love you but nothing in this world could make you mine
    Yet still in time
    Joanna
    Joanna, you may remember me and change your mind Writer/s: JACKIE TRENT, TONY HATCH
