TRACES OF YOU

It’s like looking for fiction

In a litter of facts

I’ll be running for cover

And never watch for the tracks

Like a kiss in the desert

Amid the blowing sand

I’ll be reaching to find you

But never touch your hand

 

Whatever I do

I look for traces of you

 

 In the wide open spaces

In the blink of an eye

Whether searching for reason

Or the stars in the sky

In the glass of a window

In the face of a child

Dressed to dance in the moonlight

Running naked and wild

 

Whatever I do

I find traces of you

I find traces of you

I find traces of you

 

                                                        WHEN YOU ARE HERE

 

Baby,

Do you know how much I love you?

Baby,

Do you know how much I care ?

Baby,

Don’t you ever think of leavin’,

Cuz love is sweet, and so complete; ohhhhh, when you are here.

 

Baby,

Won’t you wrap your world around me?

Baby,

From the dark unto the light?

Baby,

let the warmth of love surround me,

Cuz when we kiss, such soulful bliss; ohhhhh, when you are here.

 

Some may say that, love is fleeting……

Some will tell you ( that ) it will pass.

But I have waited for a lifetime to have you here with me at last!

 

Baby,

Put your lovin’ arms around me.

Baby,

Pull me in and hold me tight.

Baby,

There can be no love without you.

Cuz life is sweet, and so complete; ohhhhh, when you are here.

 

World Won’t Let Me Go

 

Free me from this troubled longing,

That drives the hunger in my soul.

Take the light that shines all above me

Save me from the darkness down below.  ( From the dark…)

 

All the houses now are empty.

All those lives have come and gone.

Ghost, they stop and share their stories

Of a time when they belonged.                    ( Of a time…)

 

The flowers won’t spare the grieving

The only thing I care to know

Please don’t tell me that you love me

When the world won’t let me go.              

 

Buried down inside these canyons,

Stretching up along the hills.

All these memories long forgotten

Yearn that they might be remembered still.     ( That they might…)

 

Children stare at me in wonder

They put their hands upon my clothes.

They won’t follow as I leave them

To a place they’ll never know.                ( To a place…)

 

The flowers won’t spare the grieving

The only thing I care to know

Please don’t tell me that you love me

When the world won’t let me go.

When the world won’t let me go.

When the world won’t let me go.

 

 TO THE LIFE

 

 Come take my hand, let us walk down this street of our dreams

Remember the lights, the mirrors; the hearts, pulled tight at the seams

Tell me the words; I long, to hear from your voice

Whisper to me

 

Of the life we had thought we had planned

 

Come let your lips brush softly to the lines in my skin

Help me remember; the love, I thought might have been

Speak the words; I long, to hear in your voice

Whisper to me

 

Of the life we had thought we had planned

 

Oh, through the day

As the light grows and fades

Oh, to the night

When our hearts tend to stray

 

Come let us dance, close, cheek to cheek

Let us rise and fall to each other’s restless beat

Kiss me as I long to believe what I feel

Whisper to me

 

Of the life we had thought we had planned

To the life we had thought we had planned

To the life we had planned

To the life

 

THE EYES THAT I SEE

Oh, take me away to a place long ago

Where I still see her face and my memories flow

To the girl that I loved and the wonders that be

In the face of my dreams and the eyes that I see

On a day long since passed she promised her hand

To the man that I was and the life we had planned

In the shimmering glow of that emerald light

She was to this young man a beautiful sight

We found that the road would twist and would knot

It pulled us apart as we loved and we fought

So we shuttered the doors to the heart that we shared

To the love that was promised and left to despair

What of the choices we make

And what of the roads that we take…when we leave

No cold river flows past the ice in my heart

For a fool never sees his sorrows depart

At the end of this life, and the end of the light

I still see those eyes, filled with delight

Now you lay cold to the world and my hand

As I watch as they lower you deep in the sand

It’ll pull me down too as the light turns to gray

There’s no need for tears and no need to pray

What of the roads that we take

And what of the mistakes we make…when we leave

 

LET HER DANCE

 

As we stand in line (waiting for someone to move)

As we fade in time (the store music takes on the groove)

 

So let her dance to the beat with her arms as they sway with her feet

As they move to the sounds that are hers (alone)

As we head back home

 

Just another day (the kids and the man and the life)

Back and forth each way (The songs will they will block out the strife)

 

So let her dance to the beat with her arms as they sway with her feet

As they move to the sounds that are hers (alone)

As we head back home

 

You promised we’d always be true

To the kisses when our love was new

But time runs away with our lives

So there’s only tonight

 

On the way we go (he wonders what he ought to say)

Just another blow (look out the window and pray)

 

So let her dance to the beat with her arms as they sway with her feet

As they move to the sounds that are hers (alone)

As we head back home

 

THE DAY

 

Let it rain

Let my soul wash away

And then like a

Stream, we will flow

To the end of the day

 

Light warm me

Let the world make me whole

And then like a

Bird I will sing

To the start of the day

 

 

Spin

Like the Earth

Like a dance

Round and round

Love

Like a child

In your arms

To whom you’re bound

 

Revolve

Like the Earth

Like the stars

High above

And know

To the end

To be loved

Is to love

 

 

 

Let it rain                                                                                                              Light warm me

Let my soul wash away                                                        Let the world make me whole

And then like a

Stream, we will flow                                                                                           Bird I will sing

To the end of the                                                                          To the start of the day
