I think we've met before Once In a crowded room, or in a bar I saw you there, across the way but your soul far Away in another place, and yours was just another face I think we've danced before Twice. I was the sun and you were a mist On a field. I rise and you lift We Reached for a kiss, as we yield We shifted and missed, You were gone but I shone And time marched on I think we've met before Three times I felt the whisper of the coolest breeze through the night was stiff and still, hot. I tried to breath and we had both forgot. So I listened for you song And time marched on And through the years and in the night I waited for a magic sign, I'd seen a flash I'd a hear line but I couldn't find that slip of time... I think we met before Four times I've seen that look Through different eyes In different times four different lives And time marched on

Emmanuelle 02:54
Emmanuelle Every time you walk in through that door Are you walking where you’ve been before? Is this all there is have you seen more? Emmanuelle Did I just hear that song you used to sing Hear it flowing out from everything Like a rock beneath a rushing stream And there’s a melody of love which sings from you A song that echoes A body apart And in it’s everything You dreamed before With your body In the dark Emmanuelle I wish you well So all that knowingness won’t bring you down One day we all can wear that glory crown But till then I’m glad to be around Emmanuelle Did I just hear that song you used to sing Hear it flowing out from everything Like a rock beneath a rushing stream

Like the moon you light the night At first so close Then up so high and out of sight I hear a voice call on the wind I’ve been there too And I’ve seen what you’ve seen Back and forth we pull the tide In and out as waves collide A whisper rises from the sea “I can’t ask you To wait for me” Like the moon you light the night At first so close Then up so high and out of sight I hear a voice call on the wind I’ve been there too And I’ve seen what you’ve seen

Do you feel the icy hand of grace Apace white horses run their race They are riding on a path And it’s leading to a better place Where nature and technology combine Powered only by your mind And only when the stars align We’re growing closer To see further Growing closer To be free Have we met before I think I’ve seen your face At least I’ve seen that look Looking for a face to see Weaving threads into reality But the fabric’s thin and spirits come and go Passing gently through the door Always open never closed At least I think we’re growing closer To see further Growing closer To be free Holy parts and body smarts combine Collide to make this life of mine Divine and spilt just like a rhyme which Echoes through the of bounds endless time But the way is dark and shadows fill the parth I marked before this soul embarked Upon a road that’s cold and stark And so I hope I’m growing closer To see further Growing closer To be free

I saw you walking, alone By a river After all the birds had flown And until I hold your head I’ll hold the night instead I heard you talking By the way The words were old and strange and pure But you never said my name And until Our names are shared We’ll share the stars instead I saw you walking, alone In a valley That I had never known And until I hold your head I hold the night instead

Ride 03:30
Riding through the wind Waiting while the mysteries begin Searching for a lock that fits the key That will be me And as night becomes the day I’ll still be riding still be heralded away Going faster than I’ve ever gone before Looking for more Don’t tell me to slow down I can’t hear you when there’s promise all around And I don’t want to when there’s everything at stake Make no mistake And light can travel fast Look behind you and see everything has past Colors flash and up is down and down is up La la la la

Why If everything is nothing but a state of mind Do I think about you and feel lonely all the time And why do I see clearly when love is blind? And now, if there’s a single thing that I can really know for sure It’s that every night is colder, than the one before As winter’s waiting silently behind the door The softest touch can yield a hard return And fingertips are cool until they burn These shadows aren’t enough to follow Help me hold on till tomorrow And why If everything that happens has a time and place Do I close my eyes and always see your face Images repeating that can’t be replaced When you were near I felt the turning of the universe and all its gifts Now when I try to reach for them I always miss Left with nothing but a muddled mind and empty fist Nothing makes me trust you like a lie The shimmering reveals it by and by These shadows aren’t enough to follow Help this night become tomorrow Nothing makes me trust you like a lie The shimmering reveals it by and by These shadows aren’t enough to follow Help this night become tomorrow And why, Is it the saddest songs Which seem to come so easily How did it come to pass you never speak to me Changes come on slow and then come suddenly I used to see but now my visions blurred And everywhere there’s sweet decay And when I close my eyes I only fade away Down to where there is no night no sun no day The softest touch can yield a hard return And memories are cool until they burn These shadows aren’t enough to follow Help me hold on till tomorrow

Windmills 02:43
Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel Like a snowball down a mountain, or a carnival balloon Like a carousel that's turning running rings around the moon Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind! Like a tunnel that you follow to a tunnel of its own Down a hollow to a cavern where the sun has never shone Like a door that keeps revolving in a half forgotten dream Or the ripples from a pebble someone tosses in a stream Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind! Keys that jingle in your pocket, words that jangle in your head Why did summer go so quickly, was it something that you said? Lovers walking along a shore and leave their footprints in the sand Is the sound of distant drumming just the fingers of your hand? Pictures hanging in a hallway and the fragment of a song Half remembered names and faces, but to whom do they belong? When you knew that it was over you were suddenly aware That the autumn leaves were turning to the color of her hair! Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel As the images unwind, like the circles that you find In the windmills of your mind!

They are not long these days of wine and roses A path emerges from a dream then closes, in a dream And if that is true I want to spend more time with you These distances will never do How can I share my heart with you Hot nights and holidays are hard to bear The memory of you stays with me when you’re not there And thought it’s not me I hope you’re in good company And giving it away for free Why do we miss what has not been Why do we always choose the dream We’re growing closer to the day I turn around and say I love you Though I could wait forever, time has other plans I’m starting to get scared the sun will set before I hold your hand So let me run to you with open arms and open hearts Give it everything, we’ll hit the mark We’ve come so far we can’t go back They are not long these days of wine and roses A path emerges from a dream then closes, in a dream And if that’s true I want to lay in down with you Forever till our lips turn blue Forever isn’t long...
