An attempt at transcribing the lyrics of one of the 1992 songs from Billy, in the dark of the theatre. (P. Greenhill)

My Heart is Ready When You are.

You’ll be the moon and I’ll be the sky -(Liz)
Two reckless souls on a carpet ride
We’ll scan the skies till we find our star
My heart is ready when you are

You’ll wish a wish and I’ll wave a wand -(Billy)
I’ll even go way beyond, beyond
A smile from you could take me that far
My heart is ready when you are

We’re going on a wild adventure -(Both)
You think we’re crazy?
Well we’re crazy!
This world is leaving, time to take it
First we’ll take it
Then we’ll make it

I’ll fall in love with you, everyday (Both)
I’ll always mean everyword I’ll say
We’re all we need, we’re each others star
My heart is ready when you are.

Music by John Barry
