Track Name: Down by the River
Down by the river
I long for the sea
Bound by a spell
Where the river runs free
Falling hard for you, girl
Oh no
Follow you down
Breaking the waves
Trapped in my darkness
The river haze
Lost in my senses
Lost in my ways
Falling hard for you, girl
Down, down
The river runs off
Into the blue
Go now Go now
Go now to where the river runs free...
So how fantastic
A daybreak can be
Down by the river
With your eyes on me
Standing strong for you, girl
Winter is gone
The river is us
Homeward bound
///Times are changing
Changes are made
I rise with the voices
The voices of faith
Follow and lead me
Trust and believe me
Let us go down
Where the river runs free///
Track Name: Like to Keep an Eye on You
I go and gather thoughts of you like
flowers in a summers field
I know that you can tell I am
You always know to think of me
The way you make me feel
I’m singing on the telephone
I’m laughing in my sleep
Forgetting how the real world goes
Remembering important things
As what you mean to me
//You got a fool too lazy
To face necessity
I call on the moments
And go sailing on that stream
Common notion
Taking off the pressure
I choose to keep my senses high
I like to keep an eye on you//
Common notion
Taking off the pressure
I choose to keep my senses high //
You are my necessity
The food I eat, the air I breathe
You are my ecstasy
Simply extraordinary
//Need to look at you
I love to always keep an eye on you//
//Me to look at you//
Track Name: Stranger
Could this night
Hold a light
Could the answer stand
In the glowing moon
Or come the werewolves
To lighten
Stranger candles
Could the right
Conceive the wrong
Or what is really
Going on...?
Life stands still
Too cool for lies to live in
Could love
Fool you around
And have you standing
Naked with none...
God forbid
The perfect stranger
Inside you
”L’autre fois Le presentiment
Que tu m’aimes
Que tu m’aimes vraiment
Le siège de rêve Un cuir froid”
Who else told you
She would love you
Is this how its meant to be
Cold leather seated dreams
Cool an sober
Did you fake a cry
Cool and sober
Calling the stranger back
Who else told you
She would love you
Is this how its meant to be
Who else told you
She would love you
Feel the cold leather seated dreams....
Track Name: The Serpent Face
I got home on a rainbow
My castle at rainbows end
The mind is shining mellow
My soul out of the rain
I got over falling
Getting up once and for all
Staring down
The serpents Face
Sent that hissing serpent home
Could not stand it any more
I got enough of smiling faces
She there in the middle with the clowns
Dancing 'round in the middle of her circus
Her Musac ringing always around the town
Holding my hands
Rubbing on the dance floor
How could one ever feel so cold
//make it go away//
I got over falling
Getting up once and for all
Clearing out the
The Serpents Face
None of that no more
No serpents round my door
Stare down he Serpents Face
None of that no more
No serpents round my door.
Track Name: Memento
Remember days when love was you
The innocence of life’s prelude
Feel like you’re standing by my side
It comforts me in troubled times
Cuddled up beside the one
Who’s looking to me now
She’s so descended
To look in those eyes
Makes me smile
Think back on days when love was You
Before the falling into shrewd
I still can feel your hand in mine
It comforts me in troubled times
I wish you safe across from here
To that distant hemisphere
A coming home to fields of green
A wakening across that sea
A wakening across that sea
Sometimes it feels as if you’re here
Reaching out to keep me safe
A coming home to fields of green
A wakening across that sea
Across that sea
Across that sea
I look to You
I think of You
Wakening across that sea
Wakening across that sea
Across that sea.....
Track Name: Rain
Soon over, over , over
Come what may
Keep me to life’s
Right side of the lane
I know where you went
Don’t go there again
It shouldn’t be this life
To take you away
Wind wiper
The heavy rain
You feel as tears
Going crazy in your mind
Go or stay
Whatever; be the same
'cause your eyes are loosing me...
Drain all the memories
In heavy rain
Tears for a wind wiper
To wash away
Drain all the memories
In heavy rain
'cause your eyes are loosing me..
Whatever; be the same
Let life be to blame
The road is just leading
To places unreal
And your eyes are loosing me....
Track Name: Shine My Way
In a dream
Out to sea
Lighthouse bound
For you
Fair the wind
Blew that night
love, love , blowing.
”Have faith
Fear not the haze
Though sad
The siren’s calling
'Cause your mind
Know by heart
The inner map”
How it be
Without you...
Sometimes fear
Wake me up
Rolling falling
Into a great void
Miles in the distance
Your offshore coast
You made me overcome my fright
You gave me hope
For this longest ride
Giving life meaning
I felt
Light
Shine my way
I will stay...
Light
Shine my way
I will stay
And morning came
Well out of blue
With love beyond
Dream and awake
Shine my way
Shine your light
This love
Let it be
I longed for you
In my mind
Here at last
Come what may
Oh, what a place to be safe...
Beside you...
I will stay
Track Name: Drifting
Take a chance
While wonders are long gone
I can go
To imagine
Got no hand
To hold or non to lead
I can live it
Or spend it
Could love save us
And the long life
Be ours
I may only just consuming
What was right
I didn’t know my failures
Or my wishes
I once was ...
At this bend
Take me away
From this world
Oh, love
The hate
The sin
Cruel visions
Love can place you in
Track Name: The Full Line
Go with me baby
To high five and trust
Stay for a lover
Who loves you till dust
I roll you like Keaton
I treat you with style
I step in the stadium
In the bulls eye...
Go with my money...
I do owe her this
She’s buying reincarnations
Me’s the one that she wants
Oh, what I’m telling you
It’s all in my head
As if you care for anything
I ever say.....-
Go with me baby
To high five and trust
Stay for a lover
Who loves you till dust
Stay for a lover
///Who loves you till dust///
