From _Blitz_ #23, 11/77:

  Mike McDowell:  I hope you know what I'm referring to, but would you
       consider George Gershwin a major influence?

  Ray Graffia:  You mean the fact that we stole 'Rhapsody In Blue'?

  MM:  Exactly!  Of course I'm thinking of the 'I Lie Awake' single.

  RG:  We sang 'Rhapsody In Blue' in the high school chorus, and we
       liked it enough to transform it into one of our own songs.

                             "I Lie Awake"
                  (Gerry VanKollenburg - Ray Graffia)

Verse 1:
[ Tab from: ]
	A       G                A 
	I lie awake counting my time
	              C                D
	A breaking heart, a troubled mind
	            E                  D [2/4]
	A mournful soul which I have signed away
	   A       G    A
	I want my love back

Verse 2:

	I lie awake in love this time
	No broken heart, no troubled mind
	No mournful soul, I'm treated fine 'cause now
	I've got my love back

Refrain 1:

	 A                 G
	You...  live in a lonely world
	     A                    G
	Now you...'ll  never be alone, girl


	 A   C/G  D/F#  E
	Ahh  ahh  ahh  ahh

	 A     G/A A
	You and I-i
	    C/G                    C     G/B
	Will be together 'til the end of time
	You and I-i
	Will be together and you'll be mine
	You and I-i
	The stars, the sun, and the moon will shine

	/ / / /  / / / /

	Just we two-oo
	I didn't know what they all knew
	I was fooled
	Couldn't believe what you were doin'
	I was true
	You know I wish that you were too

	/ / / /  / / / /

Refrain 2:

	Life...  was so carefree
	But you...  never really cared for me
