Lyrics

Ways To Love

We are the teachers
We are the guides
We are the preachers
When the new world arrives
Come gather 'round children
And don't be afraid he will come while you're dreamin'
She will stay when you wake
Nothin' will be the same anymore
A change like no change ever before
'Cause there's more ways to love you
Than words could ever describe
More ways to love you
Than ideas in your mind
More ways to love you
Than you could ever believe
More more ways to love you
Than one heart can conceive
All the tribes come together
As one on this day
All the pathways to heaven
Will meet on the great highway
And we will not be divided
Within ourselves become whole
And we will look at each other
With new eyes and new souls
Nothin' will be the same anymore
And the mouth of creation will roar
More ways to love you
Than every song ever sung
More ways to love you
Than every race ever run
More ways to love you
Than every game every played
More ways to love you
Than every promise ever made
More ways to love you
Than all the stars in the sky
More ways to love you
Than all the tears ever cried
More ways to love you
Than every baby been born
More ways to love you
Than any story ever told

Spirit Of Angels

[leigh, Nelson]
Memories of a past life burning
The scent of opium and dreams
See you standing in the doorways
Guiding us through the world unseen
Your grace is all around me
Your kindness like a shield
Golden light protects and heals me
When I let your brightness in
Spirit of Angels walk with me
In steps of unconditional love
Spirit of Angles dance
Catch me twirling in your trance
Spirit of Angels fly to me
On wings of unconditional love
Spirit of Angels fly to me
Hold me close and don't let me go

Misery and heartache all around us
The broken people play
Lost in a material world
All they see are prizes and fame
When all our feelings turn to stone
We become the walking dead
Roam our streets to nowhere
Lost from home, live in our heads
Spirit of Angles talk to me
In words of unconditional love
Spirit of Angels wake
Heal our hearts don't let them break
Spirit of Angels show us how
How to receive unconditional love
In words of unconditional love
Spirit of Angels speak
We are waiting at your feet
Spirit of Angels come on down
Yes we're ready for you now
Spirit of Angels show us how
How to give unconditional love
All there is, is all you are
And all you are
Is unconditional love

Merle

I remember you
So many years ago
I was just a child
Sad and lonely too
When you came into my life
And you gave me your home
I guess you saved my life

We used to sit and laugh
Talkin' about simple things
You taught me how to cook
You fed the neighborhood
We opened bottles of wine
And smoked packs of cigarettes
Yeah, we had a careless time

O I miss you Merle
Somewhere deep in my soul
I was just a girl
You showed me how to love
My sweet mother-in-law
You were mother to us all
And now you're gone

All those weekends
Down in Scarborough
I painted inside the house
You planted bethlehems
And only one time you got mad
When you caught me smokin' grass
Mandy, you'll ruin your brain you said

O I miss you Merle
So innocent and kind
So caring and loyal
In twenty years we never had a fight
My sweet mother-in-law
You were mother to us all
And I can't believe you're really gone

Live The Dream

Out of the blood and the dust
The living rise because they must
Through the centuries of time
The dying stay on the line
To speak his name
And she remembers their betrayal
And he knows what it means to wait
'Till we are ready to live the dream

And so they dragged him down the streets
The madness follows at his feet
Wild eyes and spitting teeth
O how cruel they can be
And all she can see is the side of his face
The sound of a hurricane
In a tunnel of grace
And she is with him in this faraway place
O we were supposed to live the dream
Now she is kneeling in the mud
Looking up into his eyes
And the rain comes down
On this terrible sight
It will never stop raining now she says
She cursed them through the river of tears
He looked down dazed, hurt
Angry and confused
It was not supposed to happen this way
He said I'll be back
To live the dream

This Wheel's On Fire

[Dylan, Danko]
If your mem'ry serves you well
We were goin' to meet again and wait
So I'm goin' to unpack all my things
And sit before it gets too late
No woman alive will come to you
With another tale to tell
But you know that we shall meet again
If your mem'ry serves you well
This wheel's on fire
Rolling down the road
Best notify your next of kin
This wheel shall explode!

If your mem'ry serves you well
I was goin' to confiscate your lace
And wrap it up in a sailor's knot
And hide it in your case
If I knew for sure that it was yours
But it was O so hard to tell
But I knew that we would meet again
If your mem'ry serves you well
This wheel's on fire
Rolling down the road
Best notify your next of kin
This wheel shall explode!

If your mem'ry serves you well
You'll remember you're the one
That called on me to call on them
To get you your favors done
And after ev'ry plan had failed
And there was nothing more to tell
You knew that we would meet again
If your mem'ry serves you well
This wheel's on fire
Rolling down the road
Best notify your next of kin
This wheel shall explode!

In The Night

In the night I dream of visions
In the night I dream of you
All my dark secret admissions
In my mind come flooding through
I see your eyes they recognize me
In the night we come together

In the night you take my heart
Beat a time in perfect pleasure
Dance a dance of sacred love
I am the sky you are the darkness
Kiss your body with my
Silver lips of moonlight
Drink the waters from your
Pools of cool ecstasy
I have never known this feeling
Of pure and simple trust

In the night I curse the madness
In the night I cry in sadness
In the night I gaze in wonder
In the night you take me under
In the night I glow in starlight
In the night I am the moonlight

In the night the beasts of burden
Hide in the shadows of my soul
A flame of hope is burning as I
Carry my heavy load
I stand for you, I stand alone
Through the mists of ignorance
Past the veils of discontent
On a path of truth and courage
To the mountains of knowledge
I walk with you, I walk alone
Eagles fly there all the time
A feather falling
Ancient stories of our lives
Their cries are calling
Let me follow on your path
I'm ready for you now

Bridges

[leigh, Nelson]
You came in this world a little child
Innocent and free and open wide
You needed love and protection
But all you got was rejection
You don't say a word to anyone
Carry all your hurt and shame so deep
In your heart
But it aches now you can't sleep
Where do you go?
How do you find some relief?
O we're working ways to reach you
Making places you can find
Where the doors will open for you
Where it feels like home inside
Yes we're building bridges for you
O we're building bridges for you now
Yes we're building bridges for you
O we're building bridges for you now
Yes we're building bridges for you
O we're building bridges for you now

There are many of us all over the world
Who have given our lives to share with someone like you
So just trust enough and let us know
That you need our help
If you're gonna see this life through

Dreamtime

[leigh, Nelson]
See the flash of an eagle's eye
As the sun sets in the sky
And the crash of the waves calling your name
As you fly on the curl
You didn't look back
You didn't look back once to say goodbye
I am your mystery
I am your secret
I am your dreamtime
At the break of the morning
When the mist has lifted
And you walk on the beach with the dog
Can you hear me whisper in the wind
I miss you, miss you, miss you
I am your freedom
I cast away your fear
I am your dreamtime
We don't live in the places where we are sometimes
We don't always know how to feel
We just go through the motions
Don't you know I carry you
Somewhere deep
Where it burns hot
Don't you know I made you mine
Don't you know I take you home
In the dreamtime

My Time

[leigh, Nelson]
I lie awake in the morning light
And watch the sun as it rises
Gold and blue
And I feel just like a little child
'Cause I've been dreaming all night of you
I've been alone for a few years now
Needed to make myself strong again
And take a look at what I've become
Now I can see the work I've done
And my heart is opening up again
To let myself feel love again
To trust and not to be afraid
O I believe it's my time

I watch the light dancin' in your eyes
And the wind blowing through your hair
You take my hand and you lead me down
Now I believe it's my time
The way of love is a simple thing
You let it go and you let it in
So it comes to find everyone
Now I believe it's my time
Time to laugh and time to cry
Time to dance and time to fly
On the wings of joyfulness
Yes I believe it's my time
