Track Name: Time Marched On
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
Track Name: Emmanuelle
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
Track Name: After the Moon
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
Track Name: Growing Closer
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
Track Name: Hold the Night
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
Track Name: Ride
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
Track Name: Nothing But A State of Mind
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
Track Name: Windmills
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!
Track Name: Days of Wine and Roses
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...
