Through the Looking Glass

Once upon a summer dawn,
The waves caressed the sand, as you lay beneath my hand
With a touch of sunrise in your hair,
Like flames of raw desire, from a soft and gentle fire;
A fire that will never burn low,
A fire that will never burn low.

And through the looking glass she has gazed for years,
But she can’t face the face of her fears;
Remnants from the past hold her in the mirror,
And shadows bear the course of her tears.

These days have vanished long ago,
Into clouds and distant dreams, out of reach, or so it seems;
The sea of life begins to fade
Into watercolor streams flowing through her painted schemes;
And the fire flickers dangerously low.
The fire flickers dangerously low.

And through the looking glass she has gazed for years,
But she can’t face the face of her fears;
Remnants from the past hold her in the mirror,
And shadows bear the course of her tears.

The Echoes From Your Eyes

The echoes from your eyes turned up my heart today,
And softly spoke of knowing just the words to say,
Then you drowned the awkward moments with a smile,
You laughed and shared your thoughts, for but a while,
You filled the room with pulchritude and style.

The rhythm of your sighs allowed my soul to dance,
And gently pushed aside the chains of lost romance,
Then you touched that part of me so few can find,
You wandered through the stillness of my mind,
You led me through your gaze, though stumbling blind.

Help the People

Sing a song of love, sing it people, choose your part,
Sing it for the lonely and the damned,
Sing it for the hate, sing it for the broken heart.

Speak a word of joy, speak it now for everyone,
Speak it to the saddened and dismayed,
Speak it to the hurt, speak it to the greiving one.

Help the people near you find a shelter in the storm,
Help the tortured children find a place that’s safe and warm,
Help the battered women break the cycle of their pain,
Help the world find sunshine just beyond the falling rain.

Pray a prayer of peace, pray it for us all to know,
Pray it for the tortured and the slain,
Pray it for the wars, pray it for the earth below.

Live a life of hope, live it for the world to see,
Live it for the children and enslaved,
Live it for the lost, live it for those not yet free.

Help the people near you find a shelter in the storm,
Help the tortured children find a place that’s safe and warm,
Help the battered women break the cycle of their pain,
Help the world find sunshine just beyond the falling rain.

Help the people near you find a shelter in the storm,
Help the tortured children find a place that’s safe and warm,
Help the battered women break the cycle of their pain,
Help the world find sunshine just beyond the falling rain.

Help the people near you find a shelter in the storm,
Help the tortured children find a place that’s safe and warm,
Help the battered women break the cycle of their pain,
Help the world find sunshine just beyond the falling rain.

Childhood Dreams

You walked away with grace and silent passion,
The distance fell between us with a sigh,
I knew that you’d found happiness and freedom
Through the life and love and softness in your eyes.

The days of childhood dreams are now upon us,
Like a rainbow ‘round forever’s distant cry.
We face the pain, the joy, the expectation;
With reflections of the wandering passerby.

You take your car to face the day’s emergencies,
You’re a lawyer, you’re a mother, you’re a wife,
I think about the years and what they mean to me,
As I step into another frame of life.

I found you somewhere long ago; somehow, some way,
The shadows seemed to brighten with the spark.
The autumn leaves, the sea, the trees, the soft guitar,
Painted watercolor whispers in the dark.

The days of childhood dreams are now upon us,
Like a rainbow ‘round forever’s distant cry.
We face the pain, the joy, the expectation;
With reflections of the wandering passerby.

You helped me pull my fantasies into the day.
You believed in me and waited as I grew.
You reached for me and told me to engage myself
In a search for what somehow you always knew.

The days of childhood dreams are now upon us,
Like a rainbow ‘round forever’s distant cry.
We face the pain, the joy, the expectation;
With reflections of the wandering passerby.

Stardust Voyage

I waited ‘neath the cloak of midnight,
Beneath the lining of a silver stare,
To get my ticket for the stardust voyage,
You said you’d meet me there.

Your eyes of fire flashed across the night sky,
And soon I knew that you were by my side,
We bought our tickets for the stardust voyage,
And waited for the ride, for the ride.

Hold on to my coat sleeves,
As we ride the wind,
Dancin’ down the rainbow to the end.
The moonlight in the mirror
Bears your softened glow,
The nighttime is the right time, don’t ya know.

The wind caressed your hair and sprinkled stardust,
Across the mirror of a thousand dreams,
And soon the sentiment of love and laughter
Enveloped us, it seems.

The waves transported us through lost dimensions,
And led us to the sands of distant shores,
Where love and magic form the thoughts’ horizon,
And where the mind explores, mind explores.

Hold on to my coat sleeves,
As we ride the wind,
Dancin’ down the rainbow to the end.
The moonlight in the mirror
Bears your softened glow,
The nighttime is the right time, don’t ya know.

Daddy I Remember

I lie beneath the blankets, thinkin’ back upon the yesterdays,
And find you there to guide me through the night,
Your hand to bring protection, and your heart to give direction,
As I trembled in the darkness needing light, needing light,

And Daddy I remember all the things that you once told me
As I walked along beside you in the rain,
But the days now run together into years, don’t know whether
I can stand the lonely hours and the pain, the pain.

I walk along the sidewalks, trying desperately to find my way,
And barter for the dreams that make me whole,
I stumble down the corridors, and struggle through the open doors, To satisfy the hunger in my soul, in my soul.

And Daddy I remember all the things that you once told me
As I walked along beside you in the rain,
But the days now run together into years, don’t know whether
I can stand the lonely hours and the pain, the pain.

Children Dancing in the Rain

(instrumental)

Lines

Autumn leaves and laughter fall in rhythmic rhyme
Upon the depths of your embrace,
Floating like a zephyr through suspended time
Where day and nighttime merge without a trace.

There are no secrets from the true of heart,
The talks at daybreak paint the lines;
The lines of listening to the sheltered parts,
From which the word of life defines.

Candlelight and wishes dance in mystic lore
Across the silence in your eyes,
Silhouetting magic on a distant shore
Where fact and fancy seek to harmonize.

There are no secrets from the true of heart,
The talks at daybreak paint the lines;
The lines of listening to the sheltered parts,
From which the word of life defines.

Love Endureth All Things

In His presence we are gathered
To announce the coming years,
And the joy we’ve found together
Will hold us close as age appears.

To our families and our friends
We bring an attitude of prayer
As God annoints us with His blessing
And treasured moments for to share.

Love endureth all things, beneath the springtime rains,
Within the heart of summer its bonds by faith remain,
Love believeth all things, amidst the autumn leaves,
Within the winter chill of winter its hand through hope receives, receives.

Our hearts unite to face forever
Within the shelter of His gaze
Where wisdom reigns with understanding
Through the completion of our days.

Love endureth all things, beneath the springtime rains,
Within the heart of summer its bonds by faith remain,
Love believeth all things, amidst the autumn leaves,
Within the winter chill of winter its hand through hope receives, receives.

Livin' With a Ghost

When I ask you why, you start to cry,
You ask me if this means goodbye,
And all I asked was why you want to die.
I tell you true, you’re feeling blue,
You tell me that you hate me too,
And all I told you Darlin’ was please don’t lie.

The things I say aren’t what you hear,
Reality is seldom clear,
It ain’t me you see,
You’re livin’ with a ghost.
The things I do aren’t what you feel,
What’s in your head, well it can’t be real,
It ain’t me you see,
You’re livin’ with a ghost.

I tell you straight, you call it hate,
You tell me it must be too late,
And all I said was Darlin’ talk to me.
My arms reach out, you’re full of doubt,
You accuse me then start to shout,
And all I want is to hold you, can’t you see?

The things I say aren’t what you hear,
Reality is seldom clear,
It ain’t me you see,
You’re livin’ with a ghost.
The things I do aren’t what you feel,
What’s in your head, well it can’t be real,
It ain’t me you see,
You’re livin’ with a ghost.

Murmures

Murmure rossignol
Murmure au-dessus du vent de l’amour
Libere mon esprit afin de m’emmener au ciel
Au-dessous du voile de la poussiere des etoiles
Et au-dessus de la tapisserie de velours

Des ombres accueillent l’aube
Emportant des silhouettes de flame
Dansent au-dessus de la rosee a travers des pirouettes
S’evanouir permi les nuages
Retourner a la lumiere du jour

Les doux filtres lumineux de la lune traversent mon esprit
Reffetant de choses qui doivent s’etre peusses mais pas encore retrouves
Retournions maintenaint permi nos murmures dans le precipice du temps
Respirer de silencieux echos, permi les rhymes de l’ombre

Les reves embrassent la nuit
Escaladant les ailes des legendes
Depasse mes yeux et touche mon esprit
Cacher dan l’ocean
De fantaisie et d’innocence

Les nuages carressent le ciel
Tuisselont dan une raisonnable troublant
Arroser les secrets de l’interieur
Tombant dans un relachement
Des que le soleil pourra briller de nouveau

Les doux filtres lumineux de la lune traversent mon esprit
Reffetant de choses qui doivent s’etre peusses mais pas encore retrouves
Retournions maintenaint permi nos murmures dans le precipice du temps
Respirer de silencieux echos, permi les rhym

The Loving Words I Heard

The misty autumn mornings
Find you linving in the past,
The dreams, the screams, the tears that you don’t cry;
You won’t let go of hate,
To welcome love and make it last,
The rain, the pain, the rivers that run dry.

When you say what you say,
Then you do what you do,
I get confused;
Your actions speak louder than your words.
When you tell me you love me,
Then you act like you hate me,
I feel abused;
I need love behind the loving words I heard.

The sultry summer nighttime
Finds you living life too fast,
The race, the pace, the fears that catch your eye;
You won’t release the shame
And set your spirit free at last,
The stress, the mess, the years that pass you by.

When you say what you say,
Then you do what you do,
I get confused;
Your actions speak louder than your words.
When you tell me you love me,
Then you act like you hate me,
I feel abused;
I need love behind the loving words I heard.
