A Way To Love You Play 3:18

  • I remember a love
  • that filled you and me
  • brothers and sisters
  • from eternity
  • we've drifted apart
  • like seeds on the wind
  • it's time we reach up
  • it's time we begin
  •  
  • I'm gonna find a way to love you
  • I'm gonna find a way to love you
  • and when I find
  • a way to love you
  • I'm gonna give you all the loving
  •  
  • when I get low
  • I can't see very clear
  • the garden's a jungle
  • with danger so near
  • I make so much of nothing
  • it's for nothing I live
  • with nothing to lose
  • and nothing to give
  •  
  • life without love
  • is just you and me
  • in circles unbroken
  • waiting to be
  • but each loving moment
  • lives eternally
  • we can share that moment
  • together we can be
  •  
  • I'm gonna find a way to love you
  • I'm gonna find a way to love you
  • and when I find
  • a way to love you
  • I'm gonna give you all the loving
  •  
  • I carry no answers
  • I bring you no news
  • we talked it down forever
  • and got caught in the blues
  • but blue is the color
  • of a sky so clear
  • when pain is all around
  • joy is so near
  •  
  • so won't you lift up your heart
  • help me lifting up mine
  • together we can be
  • all the love we can find
  • I think about tomorrow
  • but I breathe today
  • I'm looking to find you
  • please light up the way
  •  
  • I'm gonna find a way to love you
  • I'm gonna find a way to love you
  • and when I find
  • a way to love you
  • I'm gonna give you all the loving

Close The Door To Your Room Play 2:43

  • Close the door to your room
  • let the world roll by unseen
  • You've been loving all day
  • but you're tired of the places you've been
  • and fantasies have grown up
  • around the touch of your eyes
  • so return now to glory
  • where understanding begins
  • in a sigh
  •  
  • This day to day of halloween
  • is already taking its toll
  • and its long before midnight
  • when all of the masks
  • will surely fall
  • in the end all of the heavy ones
  • look so bad in their pride
  • and you're only as strong
  • as the wisdom
  • that washes you inside
  •  
  • Friends who understand
  • I don't like to see you feel
  • so left alone
  • but it's time for me to unwind
  • with whoever would let me be alone
  • In the unspoken spaces
  • the silence is filled with new light
  • and magic depends on letting things flow
  • protected from all that is outside
  •  
  • "Go away leave us be"
  • came a voice from inside the room
  • and the caller shook his head
  • feeling swept away into gloom
  • then turning his head he heard the noise
  • of commotion outside
  • and returned to his room
  • where with closed door
  • he smiled and sighed

Ambition - On The Streets - Within Our Mind - Morning Sun - Love's Projections Play ...Medley 10:05

  • I'm listening to ambition now
  • before it gets the best of me
  • He's the driver of this train I'm riding
  • and he's as mean as he can be
  • Always somewhere up around the next corner
  • asking "How much closer do you want to be?"
  •  
  • I got some money in my pocket, but then,
  • ambition tells me "go out and get some more bread"
  • I've got a friend and we get together, but then
  • ambition tells me "you keep moving ahead"
  • And when I get the chance to give love away
  • he's saying "keep yourself inside and keep me fed"
  •  
  • I've listened to ambition calling
  • I'm going to find out who's calling to me
  • Through the coaches and round up into the engine cab
  • there's no one here, just a mirror to see
  • I see my reflection in the mirror, asking 
  • "How much closer do you want to be?"

...On The Streets

  • Been on the streets since sundown
  • won't go home 'til the break of day
  • Yes, I've been on the streets since sundown
  • and I won't go home 'til the break of day
  • Ever since my babe left
  • Lord you know I've been feeling this way
  •  
  • No imitation woman
  • can take the place of my babe
  • No No No No No No No No No
  • No imitation woman
  • can take the place of the delta lady
  • When I think about her lovin'
  • I got to hang my head and cry
  •  
  • Well the time has come to leave this town
  • everyone's face just looks the same
  • Yes, the time has come to leave this town
  • everyone's face just looks the same
  • but my babe might be back today
  • I'll stick around for one more day
  • One more day

...Within Our Mind

  • Momentary weakness
  • leads to
  • solitary sleepless
  • nights of fear fire
  • within our mind
  •  
  • Destiny returning 
  • brings us
  • shattered nerves burning
  • tense and angry
  • within our mind
  •  
  • Complicated
  • as we want life to be
  • We react
  • to what we really want to be
  • unity, harmony, eternally
  •  
  • We could see it be
  • in spite of our eyes searching

...Morning Sun

  • The morning sun
  • shines upon
  • the path of those
  • who walk within
  •  
  • But we are not in sunlight as we play
  • when we stop
  • and pack ourselves away
  • it will be the time for you to go your way
  •  
  • Where will you go?
  • What will you know?
  • What will you say?
  • Are you waiting for love?
  •  
  • You can't wait forever
  • thinking about thinking
  • in circles
  • in circles
  • in circles

...Love's Projections

  • Living in love's projections
  • leaving forgotten impressions
  • with some care and some understanding
  • we will love the demon projection
  • to be free.
  •  
  • Living free isn't easy
  • Do you know what I mean?
  • Feelings are going wild
  • in breath taking intensity.
  • With heart fire, wolves are tamed
  • and then the leopards are next set free
  • and so it goes
  • on and on
  • some call it mastery.
  • And what it's all for
  • is what you will
  • carefully.
  •  
  • Oh, you already know
  • how the love flows on and on
  • Rising and falling tide
  • Wash my footprints from the shoreline.

Vision of Peace

  • Suddenly
  • in the midst of fierce battle
  • sworn enemies lay down their arms
  •  
  • Recognizing each other
  • brothers and sisters embrace
  •  
  • The others
  • long lost friends and lovers
  • rejoice
  •  
  • Great vats of metal boil
  • as weapons are melted down
  • and tools are cast
  •  
  • Music
  • unheard for centuries
  • fills the streets
  •  
  • Dancers emerge 
  • from all corners
  •  
  • The whole world erupts
  • in sweet song
