Let the sun beat down without beating us down
A horizon of change glowing ahead
Shining down/ on everything in sight
We take on the challenges that lie before us / Our vision for the future is becoming clear and wonderous
Light from the sun, light from the moon, light from my hands, will shine soon
Now I can take this journey and see where I am
The sun's going down as we head into night
Gaze at the stars no harm in sight / A shining new world without the fright
Wake up, look up see the light shine / Empty cup, full cup let me give you mine
Surviving a war or a stroke of bad weather, protecting our safety means joining together
Light a candle for the girls, light a candle for the boys, light a path in world to see all the joys
Journey down a road or journey in the sky the most important journey is the one to my center
Can't be afraid to go for it all / This new found courage will help me break thru the wall
Take my calloused hand, it's fought the fight you are fighting / I have won my own battle and have a passion still worth lighting
Or is it a ray of hope that brings clarity to our journey?
Waiting alone with the shades drawn / but a light shines thru / a sliver of a new dawn
Can you hear me, can you feel me, can you heal me
Sometimes words aren't enough / sometimes you just need to give love
Unknown journey. To the light for some.
Nourishing. Is what will set us free
Open the door and invite them in / Give them a chance for their life to begin
Once a fire breathing ogre but now an angel instead
A chameleon imposter changing from aqua to red
Copious notes taken while dreaming now I can't remember I know they had a meaning
Mulling over the words of my life's book that I've still never read
Here are my hands and here is my face / Eras have gone by and all have left a trace
I'm looking for a sign, along this bumpy skyway, will I ever stop paying my dues
Jump for joy, I shout don't cry I've stopped the clock for my life review
Omnipresent effervescent feeling that something's new
Bashing about and for what reason / Still rushing to an end without completion
I've come this far and to this place / I've tried to stop time and slow this pace
A diamond in the rough, just you wait and see/brilliant and shining, soon I will be
Invisible man casts no shadow, taking control but am deemed a wacko
Mystified and mesmerized by all the ways I chase / Not only dreams and things but also my own time and space
Don't sound too good from the outside in, but I know what I'm saying till they say it's all spin
Life ebbs and flows, I think I'm moving forward and then who knows
I'm never afraid to stand in the line of fire / Standing for what I believe always takes me higher
Black and blue the bruise is still sore / Running so fast I should've opened the door
Tripped and stumbled and shoulda known better / All I had to do, was stop and write this in a letter
Zooming to nowhere, flying by the seat of my pants, running all around like a bunch of ants!
Keep racing along this road that's winding/ miles and miles and what am I finding?
No guarantees, no time to waste/ Is this why I feel such haste?
Laying on a beach with a drink in my hand / Why do I feel the need to run in the sand
Jump for joy at the thought of a new day / Another sunrise to relish and a time to play
How far we've come and with still a journey ahead / All the stars in front of us we'll be guided and lead
Feel the sun, feel the heat, feel the love, coming from me
Gentle and vulnerable we live our lives without reason for pain / Nature has the answers and will show us the way
Let's nourish our bodies and feed our souls / Do all we can to achieve our goals
This story unfolds to find a man not alone / Friends, family, loved ones unite to be his stone
Let's sing this song so all can hear / Simple words and melodies make smiles appear
Take a deep breath and exhale, now do it again and again
Riding on the notes that pave the roads of life
A belief in the future is all we have / A positive outcome for this trip that will last
One step at a time walking hand in hand / Moving forward never backward when taking a stand
Push the doers to do more and pull the stragglers from behind / Share the journey together and together be kind
Has this what it's come to, water we can't drink? / There's always a solution and makes believe...
Dreams shouldn't only happen when we're asleep / The best ones are the ones we pursue when we're awake
We look to the stars and dream of the possibilities / Lets look into ourselves to change our realities
The answer is easy and actually pretty clear / Respect one another and cherish what's dea
Got to feed our children and feed our souls / Feed our planet and let these be our goals
The jury is back and found everyone guilty / Isn't it sad and really such a pity
Life goes by in a blink of an eye / Stop all the fighting and give love a try
The day will come when we are all gone / Let's do something now for our daughter and son
How could we have gotten to a place that's so wrong / Can we make a change with the words in this song
I look out at the ocean and it's ever-changing scape
Went to sleep thinking, the world would be better / Woke up early, to find it was not
No insurance to cover the cost of the collision / Running into you was worth the price of my decision
Whether to hover or soar that is the question / The love of both makes for an impossible decision
Floating gently upside down / Feeling euphoric, never touching the ground
If you were asked a question about you and I / Would your answer be different or the same as mine
Theories abound of what’s right and what’s wrong / Will the truths be REVEALED somewhere in this song
Theories abound of what's right and what's wrong / Will the truths be relieved somewhere in this song
No seat belts no air bags just wind blowing through my hair / The freedom that comes without having any cares
I feel you dancing around me / I feel you dancing around me
I feel you dancing around me, even when you're not here / It's only when I see you, that everything becomes clear / I feel you dancing around me, even when you're not here / It's only when I see you, that everything becomes clear
It's difficult to add, to such a long first stanza / Trying to participate in this extravaganza
What is the effect of a blackhole collision / Will you bounce off and maintain your division?
It's a gentle ride till you hit that first wave / Never know how that nebula will behave
Staring at the stars, soaring without fear / Do we float thru space or do we just disappear?
Black holes collide to create one, will it turn out to be a new sun?
I feel it now as I always did, it was in your eyes, not what you said
This story started, at the beginning of time / Ideas exceptional, and all put to rhyme / It’s been a while, and the journey’s been long / But what do you expect? It’s Santa Clause’s song!
He sat in the driver's seat, his hands on the controls / Where is he going now, could there be other north poles?
Now it lays motionless at the fat man's feet / He looks down at the box and starts tapping a beat!
Up and down it flies and continues to bounce / Emitting a heat, a beat, and all sorts of sounds!
It lands on the ground and bounces to the air / Now music from inside begins to blare!
Slowly the package starts to unravel itself / And with all the ruckus from inside, out comes running an elf!
The fire is ready to cook the eve's dinner / Thankfully venison isn't the winner.
Were you born with a beard? I don't think so. I'm sure you looked dear, crawling on the snow
Thinking about the future, always sparks an idea, now the flame is lit, I can hardly wait to see ya!
SEnding you these signals, don't know if you can hear. If only I could touch you, if only you were near.
skipping on this rainbow, embracing every color, knowing at the end, there's you and no other.
The heat of the sun warms my back, but u, are what warms my heart
I admit I wasn't clear. I was lost and filled with fear.
Journey on the clouds, takes me to the stars, closer to the heavens, I know I'm in your arms
A scent in the air / brings fond memories / reminds of a time / together as one
Flowing, soaring, lifted by the breeze
Some of us dream with our eyes open
Soar above the haze where it's clear and free
Something in my eye and it looks like you
Like a merry-go-round at a carnival spinning out of control
Visions of my memories like a mirror reflecting time
It winds and winds into my reel of life
As time starts to swirl, like a genie from the smoke…
Its shimmering surface glows in the heat
Looks like it's clearing but you never know
Winding its way into the horizon
An unpaved wonder like the one I left behind
Enveloping my dreams in a pastel glow
Losing is not a winning proposition, so maybe it's time to rethink your position.
Get off your high horse, and join the rest of us. You'll see it's more fun, when we're all on the same bus.
As fate would have it I never got a chance to tell you
I never understood how you could just walk away
No matter what I did, I could never get it right
Late night is upon us and I remember when
How many times does it need to be said?
Time and time again, you lost way. Who was always there, to save the day?
You hurt me then and hurt me now. My love isn't enough, you want me to bow
Thought of your face gives me a bitter taste
You once said it didn't matter what I did
The little you bring, isn't worth my time
This hurts more than the sting of a bee
What do you think about that?
And when it hurts don't tell me
Come closer and I'll show you why
I know you love to think so
How many times do I have to say
You will learn this someday
I keep thinking of the time when we first met
Kind and gentle but that's not you
You left me alone with words unsaid
The stories you tell are filled with deceit
What did I get from all my sweat equity?
Even from a distance you still make me cry
Whenever I see you I ask myself why?
Sincerity means being sincere. Not just an occasional "love you dear".
How many times do I have to jump thru these hoops?
Reap don't burn what you sow
The heat of this fire means keep your distance
This journey is long let's take it easy
You took the lead and went quickly nowhere
I thought it was just a phase
Happy those days are gone and forgotten
It took so long to finally say goodbye to all those days. Strength and courage that I found, without all the haze.
I remember when we met and you were the only one I could see
Standing here with all of you, there is strength in numbers
This journey has been so long but I finally see the end
The day has come and we are finally ready to take a stand
Hand in hand, heart to heart together we walk as one
When you're walking down that rocky path and feeling so alone
We're standing tall, we're standing proud, no longer just a face in a crowd.
Left that pain far behind, now I have this strength, I feel so alive!
Join us in singing this song. All as one I feel so strong.
No more hurt, no more pain, clarity ahead. and so much to gain
The time has come, the time is now, it's time to revel and be proud!
We're all in this together, lets celebrate and unite
Join with us, come with me, we are all part, of this family.
Never alone on this crazy ride. You give me strength, always being at my side.
No more lies, of a way to survive. Now I know the truth, and feel alive.
What does your suit have to say? Does it show you're blue or is it gray?
What was it that you used to say, good things go, the best things stay
The heart that you used to hold, can't be bought and can't be sold
Happy to be spared and I no longer feel scared
But I guess it's a "so long", I'm writing in this song
No matter the cost, I still miss what I lost
Seize the day. I am here to stay!
Hindsight and all, I'll be moving on
Dragged over the coals, I no longer feel the burn
So much for a future, of us being together
What happened to that ride, I thought we were on?
Oh, the stars in the sky, I was feeling so high
You grabbed me by the hand, then kicked me to the sand
Candies and roses, everyday a new treat
There was a fire brewing, I could feel the heat
Thought it was odd, you wanted to be discrete
You keep trying to come back, what to settle a score?
Choose to have friends or choose to be a loner
The look in your eyes like DaVinci's Mona
That look on your face like DaVinci's Mona
A gentle soul turned into a beast
You lost your power over me
I got rid of your little boy blues
Would look better as a parachute
I'm listening now, to what my heart tells me
The whiskey tastes better without you in the mix
You stabbed my back but not my heart
Now I'm flying away from you, what you used to mean has gone away
Now we're at the chorus, I'm gonna write something for us
I'm picturing a scene without you in it
I almost forgot your name
I'm feeling my freedom rise
You did me wrong now I'm going to show you what I'm made of
It's getting late and I just got home, loving the feeling of being on my own.
Our journey ended long before the road, feels good not to carry that loa
The wound is still deep, and you sow what you reap
The crush of the fall, took no time at all
I opened the door and let you in, an honest mistake, was it the Gin?
I believed in you and believed in me, now I don't know, what to believe
You shook my world and I didn't see it coming
You lost your way and took me with you, now I can't go back and pretend that's it's all new.
Nothing can stop your spirited lust for life
The moral of the story is not what you think
This journey never needs to come to an end
The spell that was cast no longer reflects/ the mirror is dark, so full of neglect
Night falls quickly /when you are alone
On the way to the moon, fell in love with a star
Far and wide. Near and dear. The journeys long but have no fear.
Here we are now. Where did the time go?
Simple thoughts, simple dreams
A black velvet darkness the skies above
Visions of something still quite unclear
No gravity here, just a fantasy stream
Lost in an emotion, the remnants of a dream
An endless journey we find ourselves in
The belief in something that wasn't quite real
What to do now that the stage is set
Breathe deep now no cause for alarm
Dreams become reality when their no longer in the past
This language of song made of heart and soul
Yet you sense a desire that could never leave
The air between us is clear and warm, it took some distance to calm the storm
i opened the door and stepped on a mine. There you were naked with a friend of mine
Where did you go? You were just here. I hear your voice and long for your face to appear.
testing now with email preferences
Sunset, sunrise, dawn of a new day. Happy to be alive, and out of my own way.
The seal is now broken, how could've it happened? What to do now, now that it's opened?
This journey's end, is a new journey's start
The future looks bright, and it all finally makes sense
I'm afraid to look, as if into a mirror. Will I see the past, and bring it nearer?
Release them now, and let the truth be told. My vision is clear, of what's about to unfold.
Every line, every tear within the pages. Saying the truth, always courageous.
Drenched in sweat, I awake from this dream. Only to find, my life isn't what it seemed
No resolve or conclusion, leaves me in this place of confusion
No more apologies - 3rd line
"My resounding past, and..." - 4th line coming in after the comma
"Haunt me still, even now" - 6 syllables as a 3rd line
Of times that were better
Words written versus words said
You bring a chill to the air
This journey hasn't ended
My emotions held silently
They scream at me silently
The honest truth scrolled on a page
This torch I've carried far too long
Like toasting with a broken glass
All that's left is your scent on my pillow
My heart still flutters, knowing what's inside
The thought of what's inside makes me tremble
Tell me now, I wish you would
Hold me now, I wish you could
I've come to a crossroad, but our paths don't meet/Seems we're both avenues, and neither a street.
I'm still not sure of how I should feel/What's right or wrong or what's even real.
I forgot to tell you, I changed my address. Actually I didn't forget. just no time for your mess.
This took me by surprise, I thought you told me everything. What did you write, that you weren't able to say to me?
The time that has past, hasn't been easy. Now I am stuck, with this uneasy feeling.
Words written in ink but blurred by tears
The words were coming to me, as I was jotting them down
I woke this morning with the scent of you/Filling my heart with a dream that's come true
Like a genie bottle with a spirit inside/The wonder of what's within keeps my hope alive
The envelope was sealed and the stamp was licked...
There's a poetry to life that often goes unread, only when you stop to listen, you can hear what's being said
We've finally arrived at a place we only dreamed of. Now what can we do to spread all this love?
fNow I got it, and all it took was listening. Shoulda known better, from the sounds of your whispering
A millions miles away our destination seemed, now that we've arrived what have we gleaned?
We've come a long way to get to where we are, let's celebrate now, that we've come so far
We travel together on this winding road. Now arrived at a place that feels like home
We finally see the result of our mime, and relish a communication, that won't stop this time
There lies a sense of a forgotten past, and feeling of a love, that's going to last
All the mire has gone by the fresh water you bring
Reaching out to you over a span of time/Finally getting to this moment in our lives
Our story is not over, this journey has just begun
On this bridge we've traveled over, the answer came to me
Listen and hear, cause listening is free
It's all part of our life journey
Most important thing is you and me
With a thought of you my vision comes clear/Somehow our talk made my doubts disappear
So tell me again, cause I believe in you
I'm taking a stand to understand
I'm taking a stand to understand
Talk to me now, so I can hear
How do I make you understand?
I need to hear what you have to say
Listening to a story, that is being told/Anticipating each chapter to hear it unfold
This journey we're on is subject to change/Long distance echoes of a road with no lanes
So much time has passed in a blink of an eye/But seeing you now makes it alright
No more fleeting thoughts about the way things should be/Now my focus is true and know that it's not just about me
Words in the distance awake me out of a dream/They opened my eyes to a new reality
The loneliest thoughts are of the unknown/But when clarity shines you won't be alone
Now in the sun and out of the haze/It's clear to me now, with nothing in my way
Along this journey's twisting path, what can I learn, what can I bring back
I dropped to my knees, when I heard the news/You heard my pleas and it all came true
Your silence says nothing/Your eyes tell me everything
Back against the wall and nowhere to run/Close your eyes and reach for the sun
I heard you the 1st time, and your words ring true
A journey begins when an idea emerges
No more fog no more clouds/Only clarity in what she found.
Searched the stars to find her own/She finally found it and calls it home.
She awoke today looking up at the sky/Never to again thinking of a way to die.
Rise, girl, rise. Standing tall.
I felt your heart beat, your body against mine/I thought forever, not of this time.
Freedom comes to those with no fear/Let me go now and don't shed a tear.
From earth to the heavens, she dreamt of the time/When this life ends, and it's her turn in line.
Heartfelt words never meant so much/But now they're combined with your soft touch.
Standing by the river's edge/A different feeling than the rooftop ledge.
Relieved to find what she had lost/Deceivingly hidden on the road she crossed.
Falling from the sky and wondering why/It's taking so long, to hit the ground.
She fell to the earth from above the clouds/She then awoke from the nightmare, by a distant sound.
Like a squirrel leaping from branch to branch/Your relationships would work if you gave them a chance.
Journey's end where will it be? Wherever it is, you'll find me.
My world is like a rainbow, colored by the prism of life Freedom comes when you let go, and get carried by the light.
My journey with you has no bounds/From earth to air, I relish in what I've found
Grab a hold of something quick, this ride's gonna be fantastic!
All the plans we made for our future together now gone in an instant like a flash of bad weather
All the wounds have healed and they never left a scar/Guess the depth of your devotion didn't go that far
Who would have known what the future had in store/Never saw it coming and you walking out the door
My sleeve has worn thin/ what once was there is now gone/ it's back where it should be/ in a place it calls home
The pain that I felt no longer exists
So much time since I saw you here/I long for your face and to hold you dear
If your soul could make a sound it would be the sweetest song
I looked to you for the answer, and not for who you became
I waited and waited and waited, til I forgot your name
A chill in the air, a cold wind blew/The frost I feel is coming from you
Time has come to say goodbye/You found yours and I found mine
I've looked deep into my soul for a reason to come back/Please send me a sign and I'll begin to pack
I've stopped licking my wounds, with time they're now healed
I thought I lost my way, till I found you
Rolling thru the countryside, hay fields wave like a golden ocean
You appeared to be one way but your facade took its toll
The scars of you have all healed no more taking your insipid calls
Memories of you are now just fresh spackled holes
Aspirations of gold, platinum and reaching for the stars/I'd give them all up to be in your arms
No longer stifled by unspoken words/Truth above everything, is certainly the cure
Standing alone, center stage/Finally at home and out of the rage
Journey's end seems so far/Too many hours driving in this car
Uncontrollable urge, comes deep from within/Keep me away from that bottle of gin
I see where I was I see where I am I want to see the future but I'm just a man
How will this story unfold/Welcoming tales yet to be told
Staring out the window at my world going by/Speeding down the highway wishing I could fly
Uncertainty comes with an anxious tone/Relief comes when I'm finally alone
Traveled east and journeyed west/ Opened my front door and this feels the best
Just landed and feeling the buzz/ My city awaits, it's the one I love
Always intoxicated by the depth of her soul / I anxiously await to see what unfolds
Too lustfully engaged to recognize the truth / Blindly searching like an unarmed sleuth
Blinded by the past, I could not see / Her heart and soul was always there for me
Looking back I see my future/Could it have been the torture?
Who I was I am no more/Now I'm ready to settle the score
Dug thru the soil of my past/Finally found my soul at last
Spinning, whirling, euphoria/ Dancing with my destiny
Angels sing a familiar song/Destiny's direction of where I belong
Dancing to the song/ My sweet Destiny sings
Dancing with my future, her name is Destiny
Devils in the details or so they say/Should've read the fine print, now you gotta pay
Sympathetic wanderer attempting to save us all/Journey of good will, just waiting for a call
Future stories, reflections of today/When reading then, what will they say?
Happy memories making me sad/How could such joy, make me feel so bad?
Spinning euphorically thru the clouds/Dreaming metaphorically amongst these crowds
Beyond the sky and passed the stars/Colors upon colors, I no longer see from afar
Riding on my angel's wings/The view from here, I see amazing things
A fork in the road, which tine do I choose/Each one looks the same, how can I lose?
Grow old, grow tired, grow sick of it all/Or rejoice in the love, you have for all
Mysticism, cynicism, what do the spirits say? Heaven or hell, just show me the way
Out of harms way, or are we now?/To what gods, do you bow?
Spinning, whirling, out of control/Can't stop this feeling, coming from my soul
What will come, what will be/Distance grows nearer, set yourself free
Ballet shoes, playing the blues/Play with your heart, you'll never lose
Strum through life, never bored/Spin and twirl, over your chord
Six string lullabye unlike any other/Dance your melody as if with color
Imaginary visions of riding the sky/ Floating and soaring, I knew I could fly
A siren sings the most beautiful song/ Haunting images capture my thoughts
Rising sun, setting moon/3d colors all in tune
Now a golden dawn, is about to rise/Filling my soul and coloring the skies
Heart is pumping, veins are clear/The joy of life is all I hear
Standing alone in a sea of light/Singing that song and feeling the night
Sing a high note, sing a low note, sing all the ones between/ Sing loud and in full voice, go ahead make a scene
Reach for the sky, reach for a star/ Dream for it all, no matter how far
From a distance with a view from the beach/ I still see you and you're still within reach
Ferris wheel or roller coaster which do you prefer? Better than up and down, I'd choose the turns
Beautiful day/ Your precious way
Woke up today/ Bring it on!
It goes by so fast no time for a memory, Lost in a second, or a minute, barely
So stop and see what will happen/ When you realize the time you're havin'!
We rush and are blinded, to the beauty right here/ Then we stop and are reminded, of what's really dear
Stop, wait a second, what don't we have? Oh, wait a second, what DON'T we have?
Hold her hand, look into her eyes/ We're so lucky, to have our lives
Jerry, Jerry, Jerry... Congrats Buddy! Who do you think the next Artist is going to be?
Stereotypical non descriptable dichotomy/ Am I in need of a refreshing lobotomy?
Thru the dust and over the coals/ In the end we flew above the clouds
A special time, a special rhyme, meant for one and all/ All your notes, all your words, I hear your melody call
Never stifling, never trifling, you are always true/ Like a punch of reality, is the spark of you
Shook me to the core and hit me in soul/ You took me by surprise like great rock and roll
Found myself looking into a mirror/ Didn't know that I was missing
Counting the hours till I see you again/ Shoulda looked in the mirror for my own grin
Can't believe with such disbelief/ Regained your life from the spirit thief
Cry, cry, cry, laugh, laugh, laugh/ Reflection looks back on my behalf
Now I see you standing there/ No more shadows no more glare
I captured your heart with a silly notion/ So glad I mixed that delicious potion
Searched the sky looking for my star/ Closed my eyes and there you are
Went to reach for what was there/ Focus gone, got lost in your stare
Black and blue she rose from the dead/ Walked around to look for her head
Living in this asylum isn't what I meant/ But it's very close to what I earlier dreamt
Those pesky little demons thought they were gone for good/ Looks like they're still around hangin in hood
In the grand scheme we're all tiny dots/ Past present future all important thoughts
