Lyrics

Born To Remember

Out of the dark ages, turning the pages of a story lost
We met in a place of beauty and grace beneath the Southern Cross
The fires burned for the hearts that yearned for freedom from slavery ways
He was born to remember and I was born to forget
Our fathers taught us the knowledge of old the leopard's heart the golden soul
Our mothers' tears added salt to our wounds that turned out eyes to dreaming
In the land of the sun our journey began and we answered to a calling
He was born to remember and I was born to forget
He came down from the mountain in darkness and shadow carrying a lantern of peace
Speaking in codes through letters of old that brought him to his knees
And she rose like a phoenix out of the ashes her wings full of sorrow and light
Tears falling like rain for those killed in the trenches raising the dead in her sight
And I carry the water from the well see my reflection and cast a spell
For the daughters of kings, magicians and seers waiting to come in
And a new day is dawning through the thunder and the lightening
Warriors carrying the sword, colored rain returning again for the coming of the Lord
We are one in the land of the sun and everyone answers the call
He was born to remember and I was born to forget

Coming Apart

Come sit beside me my angel the silence is bringing you in
I didn't call you this time but I wish that I knew you better
I'm standing in the doorway to nowhere but my mind just can't understand
I see the presence of glory but I've got nothing to offer in my hands
And everything's coming apart I'm running for shelter
Lightening strikes out of the dark and I have lost my way
I have lived a life of adventure yes, I always thought I was brave
Breaking the rules of convention and not feeling any pain
It's not that I worry 'bout what people are saying
It's not that I feel there's something left undone
It's just that the endings feel like the beginnings and the road has disappeared
And everything's coming apart my head feels like it has exploded
Everything's coming apart and I am melting away
Everything's coming apart I'm looking over the mountain
Eyes big as the open desert and my spirit has no name
Come sit beside me my angel the silence is bringing you in
I didn't call you this time but I wish that I knew you better

The Prayer

Father of night, mother of light are waiting once again
The stars have sent you, time has kept you safe in the books of men
Women are silent all of their secrets come washing up to shore
Their tears fill our oceans, their songs tell our stories
And their hearts long to be pure, their hearts long to be pure
Sisters of the moon stand to greet you they lay a treacherous path
Their visions inspire, your blood is on fire but love slips through the cracks
Brothers will sell you streets of gold, you line your pockets, play the show
But the days grow darker until you no longer know which way to go
Know which way to go
So hear the prayer someone is calling again
Yes let us prepare our struggles are never in vain
Crash like thunder flash like lightening your seed comes down with the rain
Colors surround you, the sun shines above you
You are the one with no name
It's so simple when you believe beyond the words, beyond the dream
Just a feeling to hold onto and spirit will carry you through
All you need is the courage to free your heart, to stand up strong
It's all an illusion, there's no confusion you are the promised land
So hear the prayer someone is calling again
Yes, let us prepare our struggles are never in vain
Crash like thunder flash like lightening your seed comes down with the rain
Colors surround you, the sun shines above you
You are the one with no name

Sun's Always Shining

I missed you on the corner I guess I forgot the time
Please tell me when it's over or I'll keep you forever in my mind
Maybe you'll never know how deep my river flows
Oooo the sun's always shining above the rain
Oooo the sun's always shining I'm not turning back again
Oooo the sun's always shining it's not a surprise
The sun's always shining I just forget to remember sometimes
I've seen an eagle on the mountain and I've seen a feather fall
Yes the white bird of destiny has come to my window to pay a call
And I asked her to carry me protect me and keep me warm
Oooo the sun's always shining above the rain
Oooo the sun's always shining I'm not turning back again
Oooo the sun's always shining it's not a surprise
Oooo the sun's always shining I just forget to remember sometimes
Yeayea yeayea yeayea yeayea
My love he stays silent sometimes I hear his voice at dawn
And on those darkest days a comin' will we be ready to have it all
Tell me how can we save ourselves now that we've come this far?
Oooo the sun's always shining above the rain
Oooo the sun's always shining I'm not turning back again
Oooo the sun's always shining it's not a surprise
Oooo the sun's always shining I just forget to remember sometimes

Belong To The World

Music is my religion and singing is my prayer
All that I've got is this song in my heart
And I hope you will hear it somewhere
People have so much to tell you about this some try to tell you what to believe
But all I can do is call out to you I wanna feel you so close and so real
I belong to the world from the moment I opened my eyes
I belong to the world what a beautiful place to see
There is nowhere that I'd rather be
Been underground for a long time now took years for me to get strong
Seen past games, gotten wise to the ways
Now I'm happy to just sing my song
People have so much to say about this I just try to let it pass by me
I'm not afraid to be who I am and I hope you will stay beside me
I belong to the world from the moment I opened my eyes
I belong to the world what a wonderful place to find
I'm not ready to leave it behind
I am blessed with the freedom I possess, this is the jewel of my life
Let's build a bridge between the east and the west
It's the only way our world can survive
People have so much to say about this all it seems to do is divide us
We are the same all over the place and what will it take to unite us
I belong to the world from the moment I opened my eyes
I belong to the world what a beautiful place to see
There is nowhere that I'd rather be
Music is my religion and singing is my prayer
All that I've got is this song in my heart
And I hope you will hear it somewhere

Blue Rose

[leigh, Robinson]
A blue rose grows in my garden among the iris and the daffodils
Petals scattered blue as tears along the fences and the rills
A blue rose grows in my garden climbing walls and terraces
Scent of summer, scent of spring lingers after autumn passes
The silver moon pulls at the tides, the sun is colder than the nights
She pours the water from on high and brings it down to the sleeping child
A blue rose grows in my garden among the lillies and the columbine
Planted there by providence blooms by right, not mine
A blue rose grows in my garden climbing trellises on the vine
Blooming just as twilight falls when the angels count the hours
Holy water soft as tears, wash away those ancient fears
Bring the balance back again, bring us home free from pain
The blue rose blooms inside the dawn where all our hopes and dreams are born
Forgotten memories begin to rise come on open up your eyes

Just As Easy

[leigh, Fig]
O when I saw you I knew I was made for you
O I can't hide my love, just can't pretend and what they say
The games we try and play will never change my love, until the end
I can give you what you want we can find the place we thought was lost
And it's just as easy as waking up, just as easy as drinking from a cup
Just as easy as 1 2 3, just as easy to set us free
I know it's hard to be sure of what love is if love is pure
But all I know my love is how I feel and I feel strong I feel like I belong
There are no dividing lines in the place we meet
But don't lean over too far baby 'cause we can break
What we need here is a little give and take
And it's just as easy to let it be just as easy to wait and see
Just as easy as 1 2 3, just as easy to set us free
Whoa whoa whoa hey hey hey

Jealousy

Jealousy is in my smile, jealousy in my eyes, jealousy on my finger tips
Jealousy on my lips
Lover the silence is real this space between us nothing can fill
I cannot make it right O I just wanna keep from cryin'
Why do we love to hate why do we hate because we love
Jealousy is in my smile, jealousy in my eyes, jealousy on my finger tips
Jealousy on my lips
Why do we love to hate why do we hate because we love
Lover it's all over for you all that I see is left is heart tryin' to make good
But I cannot make it right O I just wanna keep on fighting
Why do we love to hate why do we hate because we love
O this jealousy is killin' me

Emotionally Yours

[Dylan]
Come baby find me come baby remind me of where I once begun
Come baby show me show me you know me tell me you're the one
I could be learning you could be yearning to see behind closed doors
But I will always be emotionally yours
Come baby rock me come baby lock me into the shadows of your heart
Come baby teach me come baby reach me let the music start
I could be dreamin' but I keep believin' you're the one I'm livin' for
But I will always be emotionally yours
It's like my whole life never happened when I see you
It's as if I never had a thought
I know this dream it might be crazy but it's the only one I got
Come baby shake me come baby take me I would be satisfied
Come baby hold me come baby help me my arms are open wide
I could be unravelin' wherever I'm travelin' even to foreign shores
But I will always be emotionally yours

Feel This

Sometimes when I'm alone all the sadness I have known
Turns and moves inside me now like a giant thunder cloud
Raining on my heart it goes through the pain let it flow
Washing clean my spirit shines like a jewel in the night
All I understand is shame, I'm afraid and I'm to blame
For everything that has gone wrong I'm the singer of my song
All the sadness in this world fills me up and I am burned
All the anger all the grief hits me hard and hits me deep
I can be this I can see this I can believe this O I can feel this
And then when the morning comes flowers open children shout
Lifts my head turns me about life puts in what I take out
Yes I can run I can't stand still turn my will into my faith
I can change and I can grow I can learn what I don't know
So what goes up must come down what is done can be undone
What is gentle turn and fight what is wrong sometimes is right
All the plans you lay can change things you build get rearranged
Love can also turn to hate what you want now can make you wait
I can be this I can see this I can believe this O I can feel this

Miracles are sometimes plain ordinary folks using ordinary ways
To rise above our lives to find keys of wisdom peace of mind
The wonders of this world are here living with us if we dare
Take the steps and we will see to find them is to set us free
What lies inside is outside too what's real can make our dreams come true
If we open up the gates all possibilities relate
Believe in what you need and feel protect yourself when others wield
Their will and insecurities don't have to become yours to please
We all have pain we have to bear we all have phantoms we all get scared
Surrender when it gets too much let God take what we can't touch
I can be this I can see this I can believe this O I can feel this

Don't Ever Take Yourself Away

[Dylan]
I want you next to me at the end when my race has been run
Don't ever take yourself away
Don't ever take yourself away to a place where I can't find you
Don't ever take yourself away I will never leave you, I will never deceive you

I'll be right there walking behind you dearest, don't let us drift apart
It wouldn't be wise it wouldn't be civilized it wouldn't be smart
Time heals a broken heart you've been hurt you've been left in the dirt
But you still look brand new to me don't ever take yourself away
Don't ever take yourself away to a place where I can't find you
Don't ever take yourself away I will never leave you, I will never deceive you

I'll be right there walking behind you dearest, you're the answer to my prayers
I don't have to feel you to know that you're real
You're more than a dream to me dearest, I think you're the one
Words can't express if my hear would confess what you mean to me
Don't ever take yourself away
Don't ever take yourself away to a place where I can't find you
Time heals a broken heart you've been hurt you've been left in the dirt
But you still look brand new to me don't ever take yourself away
Don't ever take yourself away I will never leave you, I will never deceive you
I'll be right there walking behind you

Dreaming

Golden cups are falling around me in this room
Another dream about you another promise coming true
How do I take this fire and pass it through my lips
Burning words of desire turn our shadows into bliss
The veils are floating down I'll find you somehow while dreaming
It's not too late to see nothing lies in between us and dreaming
Yes dreaming
My love comes to me broken my love comes to me wise
Cracks run through our bodies and roses melt in our eyes
I am torn to rags under cinderella skies
We dance while war is raging, we dance into the dawn of sight
There are no heroes here there are no swords of victory just dreaming
Endless sheets of rain she rides in on the waves of dreaming
Yes dreaming
Every step beside you helps me find my way there is no separation
Between the night and the light of day
There are no heroes here there are no swords of victory just dreaming
I fall into the stars surrendering at last to dreaming, just dreaming
Yes dreaming
