BRAVER

THAN YOU KNOW

It was in 1948 after a quarrel with Cornero that Barbara swallowed a handful of sleeping pills in an attempt to end her life.  She woke up from the suicide attempt and was surprised to find Cornero sitting by her hospital bed. They were never good for each other and she was not proud of all that he had witnessed, but she needed him.  Barbara believed that their love had saved her life and Cornero was once again drawn back in.

SONG LYRICS

When I awoke the first words that you spoke were,

“Hello, how are you my darling?”

I opened my eyes, How am I still alive

Awake or am I only dreaming?

 

Oh where do we go from here, Tony?

Don’t make me live in this world alone

 

Oh my gambling man

Take a chance, take a stand

My love is braver than you know

They said your too good for me

Been to big cities ‘across the sea

My love is braver than you know

Now you’ve seen where I’ve been

Every lie, every sin

I’m not proud of all you have witnessed

When were three miles from shore

I could never want for more

Than for you to call me your darling

 

Oh where do we go from here, Tony?

Don’t make me live in this world alone

Oh my gambling man

Take a chance, take a stand

My love is braver than you know

They said your too good for me

Been to big cities ‘across the sea

My love is braver than you know

 

When I awoke the first words that you spoke were,

“Hello, how are you my darling?”

I opened my eyes, How am I still alive

Awake or am I only dreaming?
