… so you take me by the hand and you show me all is right, high above where blue turns black the air is thin, my thoughts are bright and we fly! we fly… I see the oceans, I see the sand, I see the rivers across the land, I see the mountains reach for the sky, I see the birds and that are passing by, I see the moon and I see the stars, I see the earth with all its scars, I don’t see lines like you have drawn, but I see the wars that they have spawned… … so you take me by the hand and you show me all is right, high above where blue turns black the air is thin, my thoughts are bright and we fly! we fly… I see the house where I was born and I see a place that is overgrown, I see the town that I left behind oh I see the dreams that I left to find, I see my mother and how she worries that I’m never coming home, though she taught me from a child that I carry home with me, oh I carry home with me, now, I don’t see love, I feel it, and it makes a place for all I know, to kneel and pray…

Worlds collide… We’re woken up to find a better, truer, higher sense of Life… And kingdoms fall… In picking up the ashes we’re discovering the reign of Mind… And I’m falling, I’m falling again, But there’s always another loving hand, To pick me up… erase my past… While I’m sliding into grace… Well she’s been gone… I couldn’t help but rise to find a fuller, purer way to Love… And when all is done… We’ll see the objects that elude us from this clouded view of who we are…. And I’m falling, I’m falling again, But there’s always another loving hand, To pick me up… erase my past… While I’m sliding into grace… Oh I’m falling, I’m falling again, Yet there’s always another loving hand, Pick me up… erase my past… While I’m sliding into grace… Yeah I’m sliding in… to grace…

I went walking on my own thinking of the things you told me that you loved me deeply yet but your needs were never met so I had to let you go but I thought that you would hold me somewhere deep inside your chest close to where you knew me best but tonight I know, that you have let me go, you have sold me, you are gone I went driving late last night singing all the songs I wrote for you taking all the streets I took with you with the windows rolled down you would lean back on your seat with your feet up on the dash and play with your toes against the glass and leave a reminder you were there but tonight I know, that you have let me go, you have sold me, you are gone and all our hopes and dreams, have become a scene from a movie… that was never seen so here is my goodbye I won’t tell you that I’m lonely and I won’t tell you that I’m sad or that I wish I had you back I take it all in stride I take the pieces that you left I make them into something great and I leave you all the rest because tonight I know that you have let me go, that you have sold me, that you are gone. oh tonight I know, that you have let me go, you have sold me, you are gone, you are gone.

You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips And there's no tenderness like before in your fingertips You're trying hard not to show it, baby But baby, baby I know it You've lost that lovin' feelin' Whoa, that lovin' feelin' You've lost that lovin' feelin' Now it's gone...gone...gone...woah Baby baby, I get down on my knees for you If you would only love me like you used to do We had a love, a love, a love you don't find everyday So don't, don't, don't, don't let it slip away Baby (baby), baby (baby) I beg of you please (please), oh baby please (please), I need your love (I need your love), I need your love (I need your love), So, bring it on back (So bring it on back), Bring it on back (so bring it on back). Bring back that lovin' feelin' Whoa, that lovin' feelin' Bring back that lovin' feelin' 'Cause it's gone...gone...gone And I can't go on, woah

Okay I’ll wait ‘till I get home To conclude that I am all alone, And I ultimately see That two people thought that they were me, And I’m always playing catch-up, And I hope that I don’t mess up, My one chance to uncover… Okay I’ll wait ‘till I explode To admit that everything you told me Was everything I’d need For the step that was in front of me, And you don’t have to look around to find what you have found It’s always in the place you left it, And I’m always playing catch-up, And I hope that I don’t mess up, My one chance to discover… So now I’m on my own And it’s possible what I’ve been shown’s Not comparable to what I can see… And I’m always playing catch-up, And I hope that I don’t mess up, My one chance to be lovers… And you don’t have to look around to find what you have found It’s always in the place you left it… No you don’t have to look around to find what you have found It’s always in the place you left it…

Hold me so my head is high, and let this costal wind inspire Higher hopes in this desire for the once of a kiss That takes my breath away… Hold me so my feet are dry, and let this southern sun and fire Burn a hole through this desire for the once of a kiss That takes my pain away… ‘Cause in the end, when all my friends are gone, Oh in the end, when all my friends are gone, I hope I have found what love is – that I understand what love is, Not just a kiss, and not just a hand to hold, But Love itself, and on its own… Hold me so my head is high, and let this costal wind inspire Higher hopes in this desire for the once of a kiss That takes my breath away…
