Iím in Love

You came to me with your arms open wide
You don't know what you mean to me
Girl I owe you my life
And it feels good with you next to me
That's enough
That's enough
Isn't life such a mystery
I'm in love, with you love

There is pain in this world
I can see it in your eyes
And it's so hard to stay alive
At the edge of the night
But it feels good when you're close to me
That's enough
That's enough
We will fade into history
I'm in love, with you love

And it feels good when you're close to me
That's enough
That's enough
And I like your trajectory
I'm in love, with you love

 

Thin Air

I was hiding, I was always in disguise
I was blending with the rain­grey streets.
Nights were flashing by and days were just repeats.
It’s a high tide and I’m for moving on.
I was standing at a line drawn in the sand,
I was staring at the silver sea.
Come let the future open up its mystery,
I feel a change in my heart and soul.
And I’ve been meaning to take a chance on something,
I’m a greenfield site for sore eyes,
and sore eyes are just needing the light,
the shapes and shadows of the space we share,
before it slips into thin air.

 

Hold On

Wake up, I’m alive, one more day, yeah, I’m alive.
Think of the ones you love, and what they want, and what they need.
Run away from the misery of those who flatter to mislead.
Hold on, to your life, to your dreams, don’t get lost in their schemes, just hold on to your dreams.
Hold on, to your head, to your heart, never stop what you can’t start, just hold on to your heart.
Simple pleasures are all we need. Sinful leisure, it’s all we need.
I don’t hear much fanfare for the common man these days.
We got lost in the mirror, but the mirror looks both ways.
Hold on, to your life, to your dreams, don’t get lost in their schemes, just hold on to your dreams.
Hold on, to your head, to your heart, never stop what you can’t start, just hold on to your heart.

 

The Darkest Part Of The Night

Do you think of me when you’re turning down the light?
A world away I’ll dream of you tonight.
I would do anything just to see you come alive,
I long to see that sparkle in your eyes.
You’ve been living in a bad dream baby I know,
been lost to the light,
you’ve been living in the darkest part of the night.
It’s with a heavy heart every time I go away,
and I think about you each and every day.
And when you’re on your own I hope that you can see,
in time with you is where I want to be.
You’ve been living in a bad dream baby I know,
been lost to the light,
you’ve been living in the darkest part of the night.

 

I Have Nothing More To Say

Clear me a space, I’m in need of isolation, a warm dark bed to ease my strain.
Been awake too long and my head is overloaded, rust in my bones, I have doubts in my veins.
I need only reassurance, I have nothing more to say.
In the morning I’ll be brighter, if I lay my ways beside her.
I have wasted days, I’ve had troubles at my door.
Sister, I haven’t felt so far from home.
And my whole heart aches for the warmth and light before this old psychosis twisted my brain.
I need only reassurance, I have nothing more to say.
In the morning I’ll be brighter, if I lay my ways beside her.

 

I Was Beautiful When I Was Alive

What if I could sail away from this island of imagined yesterdays.
What if I could fly away, I’d be flying higher than high,
’cause I was beautiful when I was alive.
Gonna close my eyes. Sail on through imagination,
I don’t expect no explanation,
I was beautiful when I was alive.
Open up my eyes.
I was beautiful when I was alive,
beautiful when I was alive.
What are you gonna do,
what are you gonna do about it,
what are you gonna do,
what are you gonna do about it?
(I’m not selling out my imagination, I’m a citizen of the human nation).

 

The First Sight

Only smoke and mirrors, they deceive and they lie.
False flags are raised, playing tricks with my mind.
One day I’ll rise into the clearest light of the sun,
to simpler ways I’ll return, I’ll return.
Will I ever get to see, will I ever get to see the first sight of a heart that’s true?
If I ever deserve, if I ever deserve the first sight of a real breakthrough.
Through the vale of sadness I have wandered the years.
Been lost in distance as the days disappear.
All things will pass, it’s just the way it’s always been planned.
Blow by blow I withstand, I withstand.
Will I ever get to see, will I ever get to see the first sight of a heart that’s true?
If I ever deserve, if I ever deserve the first sight, so perfectly new.
If I ever get to see, if I ever get to see the first sight of a heart so true.
Will I ever deserve, will I ever deserve the first sight of a real breakthrough?

 

Live In The Moment

You’re so sweet and you’re so fine,
there’s a glint in your eye,
you’ve been dark as a knife,
out of luck, out of life.

Live in the moment,
you know that nothing this good can last forever,
embrace the here and now for now we’re here and now together,
feel good not knowing what tomorrow and what’s following may bring,
need only think about today.

There’s no God and there’s no heaven,
there are men and there are women.
Who can say what’s down the line,
so chase that thought from your mind.

Live in the moment, you know that nothing this good can last forever,
embrace the here and now for now we’re here and now together,
feel good not knowing what tomorrow and what’s following may bring,
need only think about today.

 

Steady State

Wake my love,
we’ve dreamt enough,
so wake my love,
the steady state of life is calling.

Make it up,
we couldn’t stop,
so wake my love,
the steady state of life is calling.

One voice in the universe,
she don’t need prophecies to guide her.
Sit down by the fireside,
I feel the energy inside her.

Past lives they’ve got to go.
Erase what I’ve become,
and let myself succumb,
to feelings of love, oh my love.

 

It’s A Sign

A tender wait for the next leap forward,
all hopes and prayers will combine and adorn her.
Every day is a stained glass ceiling,
with life in her veins and the joy of being.

It’s a sign, it’s a sign.
A sure sign.
It’s a sign, it’s a sign – I see you seizing the moment, baby.

How sweet the days when our hearts are singing,
sweet are the ways of her new beginning.
And each night are there dreams revealing,
does she see in the dark when her eyes are sleeping?

It’s a sign, it’s a sign.
A sure sign.
It’s a sign, it’s a sign – how she leads me to find my soul.

 

With You

I will walk with you through darkness,
and see what we can see.
I will hide with you from sadness,
and bad philosophy.
I will laugh with you at madness,
and learned stupidity.

The world is wrong,
the world is right,
and you are right,
and you are wrong,
and life is short,
and life is long,
with you I’ll see it.

Who knows what we will see,
who knows what we might find.
Step over the fallen tree,
and beware the fallen mind.

The world is wrong,
the world is right,
and you are right,
and you are wrong,
and life is short,
and life is long,
with you I’ll see it.

 

Connected To Life

Born into light,
born into her mystery,
the passage of time,
pulling you closer to me.

Once in a while I can see you,
looking so young in your eyes,
my darling I just want to see you connected to life.

Shaken from sleep,
lost in tempestuous night,
alone in the end,
further and fading from light.

Once in a while I do see you,
living so bold and so bright,
my darling I just want to see you connected to life.

Once in a while I do see you,
living so bold and so bright,
my darling I just want to see you connected to life.

I will not deceive you,
I only want to please you,
I hope I’ll never see you disappear into shadows, into night.
