In this photograph I see a whole life before me How could I have ever imagined what the story would be? At 17 with the whole world to play to The passion of a dream and where it my lead you Now open up your eyes boy and jump right in We’re still lives and dreamers, wandering through the night Looking for that someone to make it feel alright I give a little bit more day by day and hope that maybe luck will pass my way Chasing gold at the end of the rainbow City life makes you harder than you ever thought you could be Passing by people you never really see I rarely look up to the sky anymore Surrounded I see lovers holding hands and children playing games They’re lost in a circle of illusion Like I photograph, I see We’re sold on love and how to live We reach out for salvation Learn to visualize and come to some understanding In this photograph I see a whole life before me The passion of a dream and where it might lead you

Here I am again, walking by the water’s edge Feel my reflection in the wind I listen to myself, don’t feel I’ve learned anything I’ve got the same old questions in my head Over and over, I knock myself, stand back up again And I realise it doesn’t make much sense That I try to anticipate everything that lies ahead Even though I know it doesn’t matter Save me from falling down again Don’t think I can take it anymore Save me I want to see the light ahead Going to fly away on my angel’s wings Living day by day, watch all my dreams pass away As I feel the years going by me I close the door and another opens in front of me I take my life as it comes Now love has come and gone Followed me along the way Don’t know if it’s made me stronger though But I’ve been fortunate, to see inside another’s heart Before having to let go

See a mother and a child Lost among the sand and the stone Trying to find another who’s left alone It’s a long road to get back To where you’re coming from She carries him in her arms To comfort him as they walk along She sings a song she use to sing along time ago It’s a long road to get back To where you’re coming from We sat and watched as two world’s collided Couldn’t believe what we were seeing And didn’t know what to say Then just like the wave that swept across the ocean We opened up our hearts and cried See a mother and a child Lost among the sand and the stone Trying to find another who’s left alone It’s a long road to get back To where you’re coming from

In the middle of the night is the hardest time When you’re living inside your dreaming mind In the space between the light and the shadow world Where you remember all the words you’ve said and what you’ve done Let go of the tears we shed baby Cause it’s alright to feel You always take a chance when you open you’re heart Not knowing what’s going to happen from the start Then you think back to the past, all the hurt and the pain And the feeling it could happen again Let go of the tears we shed baby Cause it’s alright to feel You’re caught up in your sadness and tried of searching For somewhere to run to and steal away Funny how we think that love’s going to last forever Maybe it’s just easier and makes us feel better Cause there’s always another day and another way And that something that keeps pushing me along Let of the tears we shed baby Cause it’s alright to feel Let go of the tears we shed And let them heal you Let them heal me to Let go of all the tears we shed

All that I am is standing right in front of you No more hiding behind anything All the words you said reached down inside of me Tore my walls down & left me hanging Believe it or not I can be serious I laugh & I cry & I feel hurtful things I look all around & see such sadness But I know there’s much joy to be found Bring back the magic into our lives Let all the light shine through me All that I am is standing right here Waiting to be touched by you I find myself talking to the sky Where I bare all my truths & fears from inside What a curious things to hear yourself do As though there’s someone really listening to you Then I hear, what have you got to lose my friend It’s not where you’re going, but how you get there instead Try not to leave so many things undone When you step away & look behind you

Early morning, your eyes closed Feel the light across your face I drift away to a sunlit sea I can always find peace in this place Then I hear the distant voices Of many days and nights gone by The laughter of surrender Living in the moment’s sublime Sunlight skies and sea of blue Carry me back home to you Now as your day begins and you look outside Kind of feel lost in it all Wonder how or why you’re here Always reaching deep inside Then I hear the distant voices Of many days and nights gone by The laughter of surrender Living in the moment’s sublime Sunlight skies and sea of blue Carry me back home to you Ancient eyes and tired hearts walk on water As far as your eyes can see Broken dreams and yesterdays tomorrows It will be here when you turn away Sunlight skies and sea of blue Carry me back home to you

A single soul in a sea of so many Born to find your way Lost in thoughts clouded by emotions Your learn to face each day Here I am, can you see me As I stand next to you I long to be free On a road that takes a life time You follow all the turns To learn the truth of so many secrets Placed inside the word Here I am, can you see me As I stand next to you I long to be free Over and over in my mind’s eye I see A world full of colours and infinite possibilities Where we’re not blinded by hatred Or fed off each others greed Where we’re standing side by side like brothers Here I am, can you see me As I stand next to you I long to be free

I’ve been waiting for you all my life Somehow I always knew That one day you’d come to me And set my heart free Hold me hold me Feels like I’ve known you forever Each day is like the first Your face inside my memory A well of deepen thirst Hold me Hold me I feel you in me Just like the day is to night How wonderful to be To feel you in me I feel beauty all around us I can see it in your face I long for you when we’re apart To feel safe in your embrace You’re like the morning sun That fills my heart everyday With a love so real and true My spirit’s swept away Hold me hold me

Say goodbye to the setting sun Winter’s dance has almost come Time to lay down and go to sleep Can you feel the gentle breeze, December light and Christmas trees All coming round for another year Where it’s peace and love and good cheer It’s Christmas time again Waking up in the early morning Running to see if the angel’s come To spread crystal sparkles everywhere It’s so quiet and so still, how a blanket of white gives me a youthful thrill As your dad wakes to clear the drive All those memories I keep inside It’s Christmas time again Remembering back to snow covered hills To young boy’s dreams and the magic of make believe A smile on a pretty face, kiss and tell while the bottle spins As the snow outside begins to fall I can remember it all like yesterday

Can you feel the way the wind blows Do you hear the words it’s trying to say to you? Do you feel the way your heart beats In and out like a river flowing life through you Hear the silence in you Live your dreams and release your sorrows Let your inner child be free and dance away Now you know we’re all connected The voice that speaks through your heart is in the wind to Heart the silence in you The more I know I begin to realize I’m never out of control It’s all inside my mind As I grow and learn the need to let go The more I become me

You say that you love But you don’t even know my name Because you touched my face in the back of a dark room You think you know who I am You say you looked into my soul and that’s all you need to know Because there’s more to life then what we see We’ve got to wait until it unfolds Now we live inside a little glass bubble It’s the only way we feel safe Away from the crush and the rush and the madness and you never want to leave this place If angels walk this earth Then the devil can’t be far behind If a god’s behind this master plan I can’t wait to see if it works When you look into a new borns eyes And see the light of the world shine It’s hard to believe such innocence Isn’t part of some greater good Now we live inside a little glass bubble It’s the only way we feel safe Away from the crush and the rush and the madness and you never want to leave this place Everyone has a story From the simple to sublime The more the man tries to separate us We’ll leave all our differences behind Eventually we’ll see through All the dark lies and deceit And what we’re left with, we’ll have a created A better place to be
