     Judith Hayman, 1993
    He wears my face                               Gdim/B7
    When he looks in her eyes he smiles my smile   Am7*/Am6
    Why should he stand                            Gdim/B7
    Where my place ought to be?                    Am7*/Am6
    Why can't my Imzadi see                        Am7/D
    How very like are we?                          Cm7/Bm7/Esus4-E7
    He wears my face
    As he walks through this ship he strides my stride
    His very thoughts
    Are like my own
    I wonder now would I have grown
    Like him, had I been alone??                   Bm7/Am7/A
       Eight years by myself, would I see inside?     Dm6/Am7/Em7/F #7
       And  find what I need: the soul I now hide?    Dm6/A7sus4/Am7/Bm7/Esus4
       Or if he'd been here, could he be the same,    G7/C/E7/F #7
       This man who wears my name?                    Bm7/F#7/E7sus4-E7
    He wears my face
    As he leaves this ship where I must stay.
    I see my life
    As if in a mirror
    And it reflects what I now fear
    The truth that is so very clear                Am7/D
    That what I see in him                         Am7/Bm7-E7sus4
    Is only me.                                    A-Asus2-A
    Based on the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Second Chances"

    LOST CHANCES Judith Hayman, 1993 intro: A* A11 Fmaj7 E A*A11 Fmaj (Thomas) Through the years, the passing years A*/A11 The years spent alone, Fmaj7/E I'd search the sky and if I'd try A*/A11 Somehow you'd feel me near...

Fmaj7/G/D (Deanna) Through the years, the empty years The years far from you I'd look up high and search the sky And somehow I would know You felt my thoughts too... And I mourned the lost chances to be with you again As I felt our thoughts touch across space Our hearts touched across space. (Deanna) After years, the lonely years Our hearts meet once more, (Thomas) In what we said and left unsaid Are the moments that we shared, (Deanna) A star that we both shared. Can I take this chance to love you again (Thomas) To rebuild the love we once knew? (Both) Oh, can I love you? Both) Through the years, the passing years The years yet to be, I'll look up high, I'll search the sky And spare a thought for you, And the love that will not be... Oh, will you think of me?

    TOO LATE: a song for Beverley Judith Hayman, 1993 intro: G - C - D - D7 - G What can you do when love comes just a little too late? G/C/G/D What can you do if love comes when your choices are already made? G/C/D/Em And when the heart that calls to yours belongs to someone else? D/C/D/Am What can you do? What can you do? G/Am What can you do when the love you see runs deep and true? What can you do when the love you feel is not felt for you? And the hearts you could break apart, are hearts both dear to you? What can you do? What can you do? So the words "I love you" go unsaid and in time the feelings die. Bm7/E/Bm7/E But the haunting heartbreak lingers as if unsaid words could lie. F/Am/G/D Till we finally reach this place where all deceit must end Bm7/E/Bm7/E And I freely speak my hidden heart: Once I loved you my friend. F/Am/G/D What can you do when in honesty I'd build that love anew? What can you do when you cannot give the love I give to you? And so we've come full circle to a life that will not change, What can you do, When my love runs true, Am But your heart just cannot change, G/Em/Am What can you do? Em Based on the Star Trek: the Next Generation episode, "Attached"
