One more year gone by Watch as it flies out thru the ether Two luminous souls Brighter than gold Lighter than feathers Three a.m. in bed Can’t stop my head Can’t keep it from racing Four hours until dawn The half-light falls on The steps I’m retracing Five, four, three, two, one What’s done is done What’s finished is finished Six strings sing like birds I tie them to words And try to move past it I don’t know what I was thinking What’s in the water I’m drinking? I’m wondering where in the world you are today Lost, hopelessly lost What would it have cost us To give a little bit back? Lost, hopelessly lost What would it have cost us To reach out our hands? Where, where is the love? Where is the soul? Where is the feeling? Where is everyone? Where are all my friends when I need them? Where was I for them? Leaving again, running from something Where did it get me? No closer to free, no sign of the real thing I don’t know what I was thinking Fingers crossed I don’t started sinking I’m wondering where in your mind you are today Lost, hopelessly lost What would it have cost us To give a little bit back? Lost, hopelessly lost What would it have cost us To reach out our hands? To give a little bit back? To reach out our hands? To show that we care?

Fall coming in like the tide Washing out the color and the light We live in different worlds, you and I Fall rolling in like a wave Sweeping out the hours from the day Why am I the only one who has to change? What didn’t I do, what didn’t I say? Did I ask a little bit too much? Don’t take it the wrong way We go back the way we came The same thing that had brought us here is taking us away Fall drifting in with a sigh A dozen birds fan out across the sky The way its gone again why do I try? What didn’t I say, what didn’t I do? Did I push a little bit too hard and cross a line with you? We go back the way we always do You slowly drift away from me I slowly drift from you Like a wave, like a breath, like a sigh You do what you want I’ll do what I have to You go where you want I’ll go where I have to You do what you want to do I’ll do what I have to You go where you want to go I’ll go where I have to You do what you want You go where you want

Standing here on my own In the ebb and the flow Where did you fit in? A moment in time A whisper, a sigh carried off by the wind When I caught your eyes On that cold Montreal night What were you looking for? Were you lonely and bored, and craving warmth? Are you the same with everyone? Sometimes when I’m alone It hits me so hard All of the love, all of joy Explodes inside my heart Baby, I hope you know You got me so good And if I could ever go back You know I would Think what you want to think Say what you will I am proud of who I am You’re on then you’re off If I’m not good enough for you So it goes You say its so uncertain Our time is a curtain Coming down on us slow Were we just marking time? Could we make up our minds? What were we waiting for? Sometimes when I’m alone It hits me so hard All of your kindness, all of your warmth Floods in and fills my heart Baby, I hope you know You got me so good And if I stood half a chance You know I would Could I ever really stay And would you every really say You would come with me? You always knew how I felt I’d never forgive myself If I threw it away Standing here on my own In the ebb and the flow Where do you fit in? Your love for life And the glow in your skin and eyes Will always stay with me Sometimes when I’m alone It hits me so hard All of the beauty all of the light It overwhelms my heart Baby, I hope you know You got me so good If you could have me back Tell me you would Say that you would

Hey now, sweet angel How’s it going to be? Come on, sweet darling Would you take a chance with me? It could blow up in your face Disappear without a trace So why not, sweet angel, why not? Come on, precious darling What are you going to do? I know, precious angel There are so many you could choose It might hang you out to dry Make you feel like you could fly So why not, precious darling, why not? Isn’t it great, isn’t it good Isn’t it great, isn’t it good To be wanted, to be needed, to be loved Hey now, sweet lover Who can you really trust? They take you for everything your worth And leave you scrounging in the dust It might kick you when you’re down Spin your lonely world around So why not, so why not? Isn’t it great, isn’t it good Isn’t it great, isn’t it good To be wanted, to be needed, to be loved Come on, precious angel You know nothing really lasts But life is made for living And it’s going by so fast When it’s bad there’s nothing worse When it’s good your heart could burst So why not, so why not, why not? Isn’t it great, isn’t it good Isn’t it great, isn’t it good To be wanted, to be needed, to be loved To be wanted, to be needed, to be loved

Broken Glass 07:06
Young boy, young boy Cool wind on your face Another pretty girl for you to chase You lost your self, your heart was beating fast You love her but she doesn’t love you back Young boy, young boy Trouble in your soul High above a canopy of incandescent gold You braced yourself, the door was closing fast Your hand went through the glass Your arm went through the glass All around you blood and broken glass Shattering over, over and over, over and over again Young man, young man Warm sun on your brow Another pretty girl to follow down Waiting for something that’s going to last Waiting for the moment when you crash Young man, young man Stardust on you skin Another pretty girl for you to win And when you think you’ve finally met your match Your hand goes through the glass Your arm goes through the glass All around you blood and broken glass Shattering over, over and over, over and over again

The night sky in my outstretched hands Full of northern light and star No space in between anything Remember when it seemed so far When I held it all in Waiting for the right moment to come I would have waited all my life for it All of the spaces to fill All of the love left to build Wind on the water Wild geese on the wind All of the hours to spend All of the cloth left to mend Wind on the water Wild geese on the wind We turn to salt water Salt water turns to foam and sand Where does it begin? When do we know it ends? She is next to you drifting Through the silent starlit lake Will you swim to her shores? Or will you leave her in your wake? All of the doors to unlock All of the miles left to walk Wind on the water Wild geese on the wind All the horizons to chase All of the life left to taste Wind on the water Wild geese on the wind Earth below and sky above us Bound by all we’re keeping in Every day I burn my eyes out And take another on the chin Heaven, heaven here within us Bound by all that could have been Every day you wring your heart out Then you wait for the whole thing again

Hey babe tell me what you really see When you flash your perfect smile And shining eyes at me? A helpless boy, a shiny toy, a curiosity How well do I fit in the little box You’re building around me? Hey, hey what do I really mean to you Am I just another passing phase You are going through A crutch, a heel, a prop, a wheel Its all the same to you How well do I fill up the space When you have nothing else to do? Another light is fading And another light draws near Strung along like street lamps Marking out the passing years Night and shadow thick and dark Skies so blue and clear Turning like the seasons Like the clouds they disappear Hey man tell me what you really feel You say one thing then another How am I to know what’s real? You change your mind Turn on a dime Like you would spin a wheel How long can you spin in one spot How long can you keep it sealed? Hey, hey what do you really want from me The time we’ve spent together Is piling up and weighing heavily You swallow up my patience and my generosity How much longer til this black hole Swallows up every last thing? Another day is ending And another day begins Drifting out in silence Leaving no trace where it has been Tomorrow is pure white light I am helpless falling in Yesterday is a memory Already growing dim Hey friend well now what did you expect? If you don’t know what you want Then maybe this is what you get Your punching bag, your running gag Your docile little pet What do you want me to give you If you give me no respect? Hey, hey will we ever truly know The common ground we’ve always shared The thread through every soul The bond that we can’t ever break The ties that makes us whole Could we rise above it all Could we let it go? Could we rise above it all Could we let it go? Could you say you will, could I say I am Could you tell me true, could I understand Could you find your path, could I find my way Could you make a choice, could I make you stay Could you give it up, could I give you more Could you be the one, could I be yours Could you see it clear, could I see it thru Could you be with me, could I be with you

We Are 06:53
We are, we are still so young Our hearts, our heads, our hands A universe inside of us That they can’t understand We are, we are still so young Its waiting for us still Thru every chance we let slip by Thru all the time we killed We are, we are still so strong Our sight, our touch, our taste We opened up the mystery They turned and walked away I swear, I swear, I swear to you I swear it is not gone The never ending running herds On emerald fields of dawn I swear, I swear, I swear to you I swear we still have time They covered all the hills and plains And filled the seas and skies We are, we are still so young Our lungs, our eyes, our ears Kaleidoscopes of light and sound They will never see or hear I swear, I swear, I swear to you I swear we are not done All of creation opened up Exploding like a sun I swear, I swear, I swear to you I swear it was just there Everything so beautiful Shimmering in the air We were all together Everyone had come It stayed like that forever The fear, the pain were gone I swear, I swear, I swear to you
