They Will Never Know

Tillie
My kids will never know the smile on his face 
will never know the warmth of his haunting eyes embrace 

They will never know the joy that Tillie brought to me 
of the wonderland of sights and sounds, a place called Asbury 

Never know the sounds of the Palace bumper cars 
or the twinkle in the sky at night from a carpet of shiny stars 


They will never know the joy that Tillie brought to me 
the music in the air, the sounds, and lights lovely 

Forever there's no wind, blowing through their hair 
the sun beating down upon their skin, why is life so unfair 

They will never know the joy that Tillie brought to me 
while I ran along the sand on the beach beside the sea. 

I wish I could go back to that oasis by the sea 
where I'd laugh, and play, and listen to every memory 

They will never know the joy that Tillie brought to me 
of being young, and brave, and full of fantasy 

But the Palace is no more, it is a mystery 
Wherever Tillie went, I hope he's not lonely. 

They will never know the joy that Tillie brought to me 
of the wonderland of sights and sounds, a place called Asbury.
