LIFE'S SWEET SOUND

As time draws nearer
I turn the final page
Though my life becomes clearer
I turn to you as I watch it fade away
We used to have so much
I thought we had it all
I reached for things I could not touch
I turn to you as I watch myself fall
I will find a better place a different time
We will climb to a high
As I look in the mirror
I see dreams or darker days
Though my mind becomes clearer
I think of you as I watch it fade away
We used to have so much
I thought we had it all
I reached for things I could not touch
I think of you as I watch myself fall
I will find a better place a different time
We climb to a high
So listen to my goodbye
Today I'll sing a new song
Tomorrow learn to carry on
The fountain of time won't drag you down
So listen to life's sweet sound
Now my life's become clearer
I write the final page
Thought the end it draws nearer
I turn to you as I watch it slip away
We used to have so much
I thought we had it all
I reached for things I could not touch
I think of you as I watch myself fall
I will find a better place a different time
We climb to a high
So listen to my goodbye
Today I'll sing a new song
Tomorrow learn to carry on
The fountain of time won't drag you down
So listen to life's sweet sound
Today
Tomorrow
The fountain of time
Life's sweet rhyme
Listen everything is okay
Listen we'll make it good again
 
LAY YOU DOWN

When your back's against the wall
You can lean on me
Remember I won't let you fall
When the weather's got you down
I will smile on thee
Forever I will be your clown
I will make the sunrise
I will lay you down
To the wounded girl I bid you farewell
Always listening to the stories you tell
Learn to live your time so you can love today
Always promising the past will go away
To the bright young thing I sing to you hello
Always wondering where did the time go
Learn to love yourself so you can live each day
Always pondering should it be thrown away
I will make the sunrise
I will lay you down
When your back's against thewall
Listen to me call
I'll be calling out your name
Yeah your back's against the wall
Yeah your back's against the wall
FOR A RIDE

Every day and night I am happy
Yeah it's out of sight
She can see me
When I see the light I am happy
Yeah it feels so right
She can touch me
Every night I follow her
She takes me far away to another world
She takes me deep inside
She takes me for a ride
When I watch it fly I am lonely
Afraid to say goodbye
She won't hurt me
When time passes by I am lonely
Falling from the sky
She will catch me
She's out of sight the way she moves
The things she does to make me happy
She is out of sight
She's out of sight the way she moves
The things she does to make me happy
She is out of sight
Every day and night I am happy
Yeah she's in my sight
Why can't she see me
When I see the light I am happy
Yeah it would feel right
If she could touch me
She takes me deep inside
She takes me for a ride
She's out of sight the way she moves
The things she does to make me happy
She is out of sight
Yeah she takes me for a ride
 
EVERYTHING

I wanna feel
I wanna feel...everything
One by one I watch them fall
I've seen my life through a stained glass wall
I don't know if I wanna work it out
Water fills these walls of doubt
I want to I wanna work it out
I wanna hold what's real
I want to I wanna break it out
It's time to see what's real
One by one I hear them call
I've heard voices dulled by wooden walls
I don't know if I wanna work it out
Lies disguised by those who shout
I want to I wanna work it out
I wanna hold what's real
I want to I wanna break it out
It's time to hear what's real
I wanna feel everything
One by one I watch them fall
One by one yes I hear them call
Now I know that I wanna work it out
Now it's time for me to shout
I want to I wanna work it out
I wanna hold what's real
I want to I wanna break it out
I wanna hear what's real
I wanna feel...everything
 
DANIELLE

Danielle can't you see
Everything that life has done to me
Danielle you're my friend
Yeah you make me feel so young again
You make me feel like I was only ten
You make me feel like I was young again
You make me feel like I was only ten
Danielle can't you be
Everything that's meant to set me free
Danielle you're the one
Yeah you make me feel like my life's begun
You make me feel like I was only ten
You make me feel like I was young again
You make me feel like I was only ten
Yeah you make me feel
You make me feel alright
Yeah you make me feel
You make me feel like I'm not losing sight
Yeah I'm alright
Danielle I can see
Everything that you said life could be
Danielle you're my friend
Yeah you've made me feel so good again
KISS THE SKY

I will learn
Learn how to fly
Spread my arms so wide
So I can touch the sky
I will learn
Learn how to fly
Set my sights so high
So I can kiss the sky
Yes I will learn
Feel the wind take me to a place
Where the stars form a familiar place
Feel the wind take me far away
Where the sun smiles on my perfect day
Yes I will learn
Yes it's my turn
Yes I will learn
You won't see me fall
Cause I feel ten feet tall
I know someday I'll learn how to fly
It has been my dream to kiss the sky
Kiss the sky
 
MY COPPER CIRCUS

(There are no lyrics...it's an instrumental)
 
SONG OF LIFE

I remember when I was young
Not knowing that my life had begun
We were never told that life was meant to change
Yeah we didn't know that we would rearrange
Back then we played like children
And still we sang the song of life
I felt life at twenty-one
Thinking nothing would come undone
We were young and bold but wanting to grow old
So young and bold not wanting to be told
Back then we laughed like children
And still we sand the song of life
Hey I don't want to grow old
Don't let them take me away
Hey I don't want to grow old
Won't let them take me away
Now I'm feeling life turn cold
So afraid to grow old
So much wiser now but wanting to be young
So much stronger now but wanting to be young
And now we cry like children
And still we sing the song of life
Hey I don't want to grow old
Don't let them take me away
Hey I don't want to grow old
Won't let them take me away
 
SHE SAYS

She says
She wants to make a flower that can't be planted
Tell me what she says to you flowers can't grow there
She cries
She'll keep it in a heart taken for granted
Tell me why she cries out loud
Tell her life's not fair
And everyday I sit and watch hey pray for life
She says
She wants to be the queen but no one knows her
Tell me what she says to you in her little world
She cries
She said goodbye to us with pen and paper
Tell me why she cries out loud pen and paper girl
And every night I sit and watch her cry
She wants to believe she's not there
She wants to be
We want her to see that we care,
but life's not fair to her
We want to see
She says
She wants to read a book that no one's written
Tell me what she says to you words are not for her
She cries
She's standing all alone but still seems hidden
Tell me why she cries out loud, lost and insecure
And now I find it's to late to say goodbye
She wants to believe she's not there
She wants to be
We want her to see that we care
We want to see
She wants to believe she's no scared
She wants to be
We want her to see life's not fair,
but that we care or her
We want to see
She says...pen and papergirl
 
THE CHOSEN

We are the chosen
We are the one
Beneath my feet the water it feels frozen
We are the ones
We are...Yeah the water tastes like wine
We are...Yeah you're no friend of mine
We are...Yeah we're running out of time
We are...The water tastes like wine
We are forgotten
We are the ones
In this land of children misbegotten
We are the ones
We are...Yeah the water tastes like wine
We are...Yeah you're no friend of mine
We are...Yeah we're running out of time
We are...The water tastes like wine
We were the reasons
We were the ones
Handed over to the killing season
We were the ones
Oh yes we are
Yeah the water tastes like wine
We are...Are you a friend of mine?
We are...Yeah we're running out of time
We are the chosen
 
WHEN TIME COMES

Take my hand and I'll show you the way
I always said time could be so strange
Now, you'll run when I say run
Yeah you'll run when I say run
It's no fun to be the one to know when your time is done
When my time comes I'll be ready to fly away
So take my hand you're off to the promise land
Hey beautiful man, why are you taking her
When there's so much more wrong in your damn world
Don't you know that I love her
Can't you see that I'm in love
Don't you know there's no other who has touched me like she's done
When my time comes I'll be ready to fly away
So take my hand you're off to the promise land
You planted a seed, and I watched it grow
It's funny how love can grow so slow
How am I to adore you
For treating me this way
How am I to believe in you for taking it all away
When my time comes I'll be ready to fly away
And before you go there's one thing that I'd like to say
From up above please don't let go of yesterday
So take my hand you're off to the promise land
 
LULLABY

This is a story of a man I admire so
This is the tale of the life led by one boy
I was a young man when I saw my father cry
I was a proud man when I looked him in the eyes
And I will sing a new song every time he walks on by
I will sing a new song when I see my father cry
I will sing to you a lullaby
Now that I'm older the man I admire so
Has left the tale to be followed by that boy
And I will sing a new song every time he walks on by
I will sing a new song when the animals collide
I will sing to you a lullaby
La la la lullaby
La la la lullaby
La la la lullaby
La lullaby...
I will sing to you a lullaby
 
DON'T LOOK AWAY

I asked him his name
Since then I've never been the same
I don't understand why he's the one they call the man
Don't look away you'll never want to return
Don't look away don't even try
Don't look away from now you're marked by the burn
Don't look away don't even try
I asked him to leave
He said he would if I said please
Now I do not know how life would be if he were to go
Don't look away you'll never want to return
Don't look away don't even try
Don't look away from now you're marked by the burn
Don't look away don't even try
Look into their eyes
And much to my surprise
I live through the lies
He was born an angry one
No more staring into the sun
As I watched him wave goodbye
Not a tear fell from my eye
Fell from my eye
 
BLINDFOLD REMOVED 

(spoken)
I sit alone, all alone
He's staring out of blackness coating the vines, hearing death
The realization of this confrontation rushes over me
Like coal, burning water, liquid fire
The time has come, the inevitable is at hand
The impossible has been achieved
I stand alone as he leads me forward
The door opens and his icy grip tightens around my hand
He squeezes me, choking
I hear the sounds, I hear laughter
Sounds I know all around me
Surrounding me in a barrel of warmth
I am afraid,
I am truly afraid
