carousel

Spinning carousel returns the same old horse again 
Ramble on and on, the thoughts that fill my head 
Sometimes I wake up, there’s nothing there but emptiness 
so I search myself for what there was to do 

Flashing backward still, I think about my youthful dreams 
Honest childhood, running dry of years 
Sometimes I look back, it doesn’t seem that it was me 
So who was I then, who am I today? 

Can you hear me now? 

My thoughts are moving fast, can’t seem to catch them in the draft 
Floating upward like a kite that’s left my grip 
Flying higher toward the sky, so blue, I crank my neck 
and try to follow as it drifts off into space 

Can you hear me now?

Horizon

Today’s a new day 
where do I start from here 
It’s like the old me 
just went and disappeared 
And now I have this 
life to live all of my own 
Painting pictures on the walls 
Coloring in my home 

And I can hardly see the path before me 
like a storm on the horizon 
It’s moving slow, but oh so swiftly 
And I can see the lights burning bright before me 
I won’t take cover 

How fast the darkness will fade to let in light 
How quick the shadows move to colors bright 
I’m in the foreground selecting stages for my life 
Setting tables, painting colors 
setting the stage for my life 

And I can hardly see the path before me 
like a storm on the horizon 
It’s moving slow, but oh so swiftly 
And I can see the lights burning bright before me 
I won’t take cover 

The future is taking over 
leading me toward my fate 
the fate that I created 
sinking into me, sinking into me 

And I can hardly see the path before me 
like a storm on the horizon 
It’s moving slow, but oh so swiftly 
And I can see the lights burning bright before me 
I won’t take cover

Take What You've Given

I am circled by a presence overwhelming 
I can’t get enough 
All these people that surround me 
they lift me up 

And I wish them their dreams 
I wish them their dreams 
Take what you’ve given to me 
and rise above me 

There is beauty all around me 
waiting for it’s time to show 
Every person has their dream 
they wish to be 

And I wish them their dreams 
I wish them their dreams 
Take what you’ve given to me 
and rise above me 

And I know there’s a passion 
you gave up many years ago 
Always aging 
Getting further away 

And I wish them their dreams 
I wish them their dreams 
Take what you’ve given to me 
and rise above me

I Must Love You

I must love you as a way to survive 
I must love you as a way to get by 
Sometimes I’m lost within myself 
I can’t see outside 
But there’s a window there between you and I 

So hey won’t you talk to me now 

There is love deeper than the ocean 
It travels onward constantly in motion 
and in these waters is where I wanna be 
traveling onward toward the sun in ecstasy 

So hey won’t you talk to me now 

Keep lovin’, keep livin’, keep movin’ 
Keep lovin’, keep livin’, keep movin’ 
We must lift each other up toward the sky 
We can’t leave anyone behind 

So hey won’t you talk to me now

Lady of Tomorrow

There’s a lady who contemplates the meaning of her words 
She speaks her mind but only after she is heard 
But there’s a lady who sings like she’s the only one on earth 
and listens only to the sounds inside her heart. 

She’s the Lady of Tomorrow 

Feather boas and silk are things that feel good on the skin 
but she’s the kind that makes you feel good from within 
Like a rainbow or a star touching you inside from afar 
not caring who, when, or how, or where you are 

She’s the Lady of Tomorrow 

There’s a bird outside my window singing softly to the wind 
and on the breeze I hear her singing back to him 
A quiet ocean there of sound, just like the swaying of my heart 
or how the waves, they keep on rolling in the dark 

She’s the Lady of Tomorrow

Good-Bye

In a dark room, advice she lights the candles, there she opens up the moon to shine 
Later on we’ll break the waters, part the seas, leave the world behind 

I remember her gentle laughter, she’d let it fly just like a child before the night 
And she’s an angel when life’s around me, but ain’t it good sometimes to say good-bye 

I want to hold onto something I know is true 
But got to clear the space for something alive and new 
Good-Bye 

A saint to all who knew you true, or did we come from heaven to be with you 
So perfect, a special time, and so strange you left it all behind

Let Go

Just before the dawn, cheap hanging in suspense 
With the golden hew hanging on the fence 
Tired of making habits 
Want to throw them all away but don’t know what I’ll have to say. 

I just wanna play 
And I just wanna live 
Recreate our own existence 
And be the birth to what we give 

There’s no point to telling fairy tales 
Gotta let go of my plans to ruin my own life 

Just before the night, fading to the dark 
With the stars crowding in and the fog about to start 
Resignation in contemplation 
Need to jump right in and drown or swim

Sun and Sky

She is laughter 
She is happiness 
and people gather to see her so expressed 
A smile of sunshine 
and forests in her eyes 
She’s my example of passion, play and pride 

They are uniting like the sky and the sun 
not just together but with the people they come from 
They give to me when they reach each other’s eyes 
so perfectly, like the sun and the sky 

He is peaceful, like a feather on the rise 
Starts seem to glimmer when you look into his eyes 
He has a warmth that brings a memory of home 
A secret passion burns in his heart of gold 

They are uniting like the sky and the sun 
not just together but with the people they come from 
They give to me when they reach each other’s eyes 
so perfectly, like the sun and the sky
