1.
you say when, I will open my eyes just to hold you if you're scared now the voice in my heart will sing for you if you're lonely there's space in my mind just to know you and the air that I breathe you can have as your own sister when are you coming around to see what i see coming around with this star that shines for you... I remember those knots in your hair use to haunt you now you're grown and they seem to have grown all around you but the girl that would climb on the washer for candy knows quite well what the right motivation can do sister when are you coming around to see what i see coming around with this star that shines for you to see all that I see when you're looking at me with those round little eyes shining 'round the world for me... if tomorrow does not understand the way you love and the past seems unable to cope with you changing there's a place where you only exist in this moment and the world sings a song that i'm writing for you
2.
with the hands of God's angels Lila touched everyone and for all those who wander laid a path in these words make something useful of today always be kind and patient prove what you learn, love your family always be kind and patient Lila tell me your story and I'll make it a song play for all those who hunger so that they may be strong and make something useful of the day always be kind and patient prove what you learn, and love your family always be kind and patient go carry your fears into the sun 'cause you're heavy, but don't worry no, we'll paddle that weight into the blue then go watch it drift away from view
3.
someday, I'll be someone who helps to make it okay, for all the people that have found their own way, to show that hate isn't real and it won't be a matter of luck I hear the promise and I hear the call I see the goal and I see the path to walk and now the time has come to make that someday today someday, I'll hold the scepter of the king and hold sway, in all the rooms where only money has a say, and I'll speak up for the real and it won't be a matter of luck I hear the promise and I hear the call I see the goal and I see the path to walk 'cause now my time has come to make that someday... today... it won't be a matter of luck I hear the promise and I hear the call I see the goal and I see the path to walk and now that time has come... so make that someday today... 'cause you know the world becomes what the world becomes and all we ever have is this moment to give it a world in a day to let the world becomes what the world becomes and give it a world in a day

I stay awake, and I think about the day that was But shortly went away. Will tomorrow feel the same? Well you’re breathing deep into the night… Is it morning where you are? And are you happy where you are? One kiss, my love, good night. I stay awake, and I think about the fact that We can think of who we are. Well you know, if we were gone today… The world goes on, but there’s no one home To look up at the stars… And wonder who we are! One kiss, my love, good night. I stay awake, and I think about how close we are… One kiss, my love… Y’say good night but I stay awake, And you’re gone but I stay awake, I can see you fly though I stay awake. Goodbye… Stay awake….

I took your picture, I put it on my wall to make it known to everyone that there was only one with each reaction the human race could see something greater in the two of us than you and me but you felt exposed and I was left wondering where I went wrong your smile has changed I wrote a letter, an answer to your call and with every line this life of mine began to fall a simple notion that would cease to be my own become an anthem for the lonely ones, a way back home then you felt exposed and I was left wondering where it all went wrong your smile has changed the very memory of your skin reflecting light on my bed when I took your picture when you gave that smile that now belongs to everyone but me
6.
I went a mile to the horizon but the horizon moved away then all the voices started laughing ‘cause all my travels were in vain so I sailed... I took a step out on the water to prove that I was who I thought but all the salt in all the oceans was not enough to hold me up so I swam... one day I washed up on an island and found the voices were all gone they’d given up on trying to change me and I was scared to be alone but there’s a little one that still remains... saying, “you don’t have to be afraid you don’t have to change… where you go, there I am you are not alone… “you’re home...”
7.
everything's broken, nothing’s right you don't get a wink of sleep at night and you don't know what you're doing what touches my hands turns to mud what touches my lips tastes like blood and everything is ruined. I'm so neat and I'm so cute and God gave me two feet to shoot so I don't get where I'm going and you’re so muddy blue, so muddy blue, muddy blue, muddy blue… I'm telling you to get away you're free to leave and you're free to stay now just where do you ink you're going what scare you more? What you don't know, or knowing you'll be where you go forever and forever and you’re so muddy blue, so muddy blue, muddy blue, muddy blue…

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…

his face, so full of miles, he’s been around the circle, gone around the block, he’s so calm, yet so wild, he will make you scream while he makes you smile somehow, his hands have seen the earth, and in every place, they have made a space, where the pen has given birth, to a generation that will know they’re worth someday, he’s got the words for the world to see, that we haven’t changed, no we haven’t changed, oh no… we’ve got awards and we have sailed the sea, but things haven’t changed, no they haven’t changed, oh no… yet somehow, you will smile and scream… he will show the world; he will show the nothing changes… they will see, he’s a cowboy, they will see, he's an unforsaken cowboy...
11.
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…
12.
you and me… we roll on, onto the street again, and these glass shields we roll up; we can’t even hear the same. from here to there it is all gone; from there we will start again. it’s all wrong and it’s all a game; we leave this world the same… so I don’t care what we’ve been sold it isn’t more than some time alone, and you can’t tell if it hurts at all… could it be that the feeling is gone? and we roll on… you and me… just hold on, mistaking the pain for rain, and all these pills we’ve taken, so we’re faking the feeling sane. they say “you’re dying,” you say, “Go on. Do you think that I’ll make it through?” we drown our fears, but we drown our hope of ever knowing it’s all a shame… so I don’t care what we’ve been sold it isn’t more than some time alone, and you can’t tell if it hurts at all… could it be that the feeling is gone? and we roll on… yeah we just roll on… between all these pills we’ve swallowed, and the glass with the skull and bones, we’ve drowned ourselves just to kill the sorrow… could it be that the feeling is gone?
13.
… 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…
14.
oh stay just for a while, and stay so that I can see you smile, ‘cause I’m whipping away your tears with my lips… oh stay so that I know I can fix this… and won’t you stay until the night has passed and there’s no turning back, so I can see what your face does to light and taste your morning lips… oh I would love to see you live: day by day… and I would like to see you smile… another day… oh stay another while, and stay so that I can see you smile, so I can smile; so that I can smile… ‘cause I won’t smile; no I won’t… if you don’t stay until the night has passed and there’s no turning back, so I can see what your face does to light and taste your morning lips… another day...
15.
hoy dejaste de morir hoy tu ser te pide más regresó el color a tus labios y tu piel abandona el gris que fingía la humildad hoy dejaste de sufrir hoy te late el corazón hoy la vida toma un paso más allá del liderazgo del orgullo y del dolor y hoy eres tú, la misma que arriesgó y no se dejó vencer por el mundo y la ilusión hoy se ve de nuevo un razgo, una y otra vez de esa luz que se apagó hoy comienzas a vivir se oye solo tu canción marcha el tiempo más despacio y se abren los espacios de la mente en tu honor y hoy estás, aquí, la misma que amo y no se pudo perder lo que el día le ofreció hoy se ve de nuevo un razgo, una y otra vez de esa luz que fuiste tú y hoy creo en ti hoy creo en el amor hoy se ve de nuevo un razgo una y otra vez

this life, so short, so long, yet so timed. the centuries are racing through the clouds, but the hours, so slow... so slow... your love so far, so close, so good, is built into the highways of my blood. and I’m ready for the selfless life with a dog and a kid and a morning drive, but would you mind just taking this one slow? so slow… 'cause once I was younger, but I’m older now, the world changed around me and I froze, your eyes, so big, so kind, so blind, are looking at a world they cannot see, for shadow marks the path of life that’s following a satellite we’re moving at the speed of light so slow... so slow... well once I was older but I’m younger now, the world changed around me and I froze… to be born again in a different time where the future had arrived... I opened my eyes, I learned how to walk, your love, so big, so close, so good, is flowing through the highways of my mind, so kind, and so slow... --- waitin', watchin' the clock, it's four o'clock, it's got to stop tell him, take no more, she practices her speech as he opens the door, she rolls over pretends to sleep as he looks her over she lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man she dreams in colour, she dreams in red, can't find a better man can't find a better man talkin' to herself, there's no one else who needs to know she tells herself, oh memories back when she was bold and strong and waiting for the world to come along swears she knew it, now she swears he's gone she lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man she dreams in colour, she dreams in red, can't find a better man she lies and says she still loves him, can't find a better man she dreams in colour, she dreams in red, can't find a better man can't find a better man she loved him, yeah, she don't want to leave this way she feeds him, yeah, that's why she'll be back again can't find a better man
17.
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.
