HI Gerry- this one has a nice feel, especially in the chorus.  Some really cool lyrics too… ie..
“and who can hold the sea
And who can the sun
without it burning to be free”. 
I think a word was left off the lyric sheet before “sun”... you could have maybe said who can “catch” the sea and who can “hold” thew sun like you did in the lyrics rights before that… or maybe you did it that way in the recording and the lyric sheet is different?  Anyway, cool lyrics!

Thanks Jayne, and thanks for spotting the omitted word in the lyrics.
I reckon some of the the other songs are a bit less ... what’s the word? accessible? lyrically. But I am really glad you like this one. Any thoughts on improving it would be welcome. I have thought it might need a bridge to bring a little variation into it. Or should I leave well enough alone.

There are things I'd like to change
If I only knew how
Things I's like to rearrange
but it's already too late now
Some things aren't built to last
there here and then they pass you by
But even in the winter winds
I want to givew you sunlit skies so..

I'll be your jester
If you've got troubles
I'll be you jester

If only innocence were now
and pain tomorrow
If only joylight filled your sky
instead of sorrow
If only I could shape it all
to your desire
But the burnin' hand of sadness
just consumes you in it's fire
But

I'll be your jester
If you've got troubles
I'll be you jester

You want to hold on to a rainbow
to catch the sea in your arms
to wear the sun like a jewel
that will keep you safe and warm
But I can't catch a rainbow
and who can hold the sea
And who can wear the sun
without it burning to be free

So

II'll be your jester
If you've got troubles
I'll be you jester
