Halo

Halo, ring of light
Say it's so and say I'm right
Summer sets, the hills are golden
And in the fire, the ring is broken

And I said to myself...
"I see your soul, what is it going to be?"

Peril, death in flight
Evil's tale in red and fright
Run away and hide from vengeance
And in the end, you'll end this madness

And I said to myself...
"I see your soul, what is it going to be?"

Halo...

My Love

My love, won't you take a ride with me
In the crazy rocket ship of life
'Cause my love, there is just so much to see
So better that I have you by my side

Hand in hand we'll blast into space
Crashing into the stars
More and more, the earth fades away
How did we get so far away from home?

My love, it's a mystery
Hanging on the start and end of time
But my love, hanging from a tree...
There's a heart with letters, one for you and me

Hand in hand we'll blast into space
Crashing into the stars
More and more, the earth fades away
How did we get so far away from home?

Take Me

Take me in your arms
Set me free
Hold me endlessly
You were made for me

Only hearts can see a soul
Only hearts can make you whole
Only hearts can set you free
Only yours is right for me...

Take me in your arms
Set me free
Hold me endlessly
You are part of me

Only love can conquer hate
Only love can end this fate
Only love can set you free
Only yours is right for me

Take me in your arms
Set me free
Hold me endlessly
You are part of me

I Shall Be Released

(Bob Dylan)

The say everthing can be replaced
The say every distance is not near
And so I remember every face
Of every man who put me here
But now I am broken

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now... any day now
I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
They say every man he must fall
And yet I swear I see my reflection
Somewhere so high above this wall

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now... any day now
I shall be released

Now yonder stands a man in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he's not to blame
Any all day long I hear him shouting so loud
Just crying out that he was framed

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now... any day now
I shall be released
Any day now... any day now
I shall be released

Kaideryn

Once blue, turned to raging white
And it's always under me
I reach for the tunnel light
And the feeling goes
I know...

You're by my side, you're by my side
You're in my mind, you're in my mind

A wall and the endless sky...
And the only thing I'm thinking of, the hand hold hiding right above my head
And all of the fireflies in the evening sky...
I know

You're in my mind, you're in my mind
You're by my side, you're by my side

Cartwheel

Skipping away over the hill
Under a gray blue sky
Hand in my hand, heart in my heart
It is no wonder why

That it's true
That I only fall for you
Don't you know that my world turns around you?

Up on the wall you've got pieces of paint
And I'm wondering what's inside
Hand in my hand and your heart in my heart
It is no wonder why

That it's true
That I only fall for you
Don't you know that my world turns around you?

Hey hey!

Here in our boat we are out on the sea
Riding the awesome waves
With your hand in my hand and your heart in my heart
I am the one you save

'Cause it's true
That I only fall for you
And I know that my world turns around you!

Hey hey!

Open

I'm picking a rose
I'm picking for nobody else but you
I'm picking a rose just for you

I'm walking a road
I'm walking for nobody else but you
I'm walking my road just for you

'Cause my eyes they are open
Like in a dream, I can't believe what I'm seeing

I'm building a home
I'm building for nobody else but you
I'm building a home just for you

And I'm building a fire
I'm building for nobody else but you
I'm building a fire just for you

'Cause my eyes they are open
Like in a dream, I can't believe what I'm seeing

When I look at you
Beauty through and through
I don't want to close my eyes
When I look at you

I open my heart
I open for nobody else
I open my heart...

'Cause your heart it is open
Like in a dream, I can't believe what I'm seeing

I Stand By

There's a big piece of lettuce stuck in your teeth
You smile at the waiter, he brings you a drink
And all of the while, I sooo love you
You look at the menu, what should you eat?
Maybe some chocolate, a caramel treat
And all of the while, I'm in love

Oh, I stand by...
Oh, I stand by...

I can't get you out of my mind

There's an old fashioned saying, I'm head over heels
I'm lost in your beauty, my heart is unsealed
And all of the while, I adore you
So let's make some pancakes then go to the beach
Climb up a mountain, it's all within reach
And all of the while I'll love you

Oh, I stand by...
Oh, I stand by...

I can't get you out of my mind

The Everything

I never wanted to know
I never wanted to say
I always thought I could save myself
But at the end of the day
Everything you told me...

Everything you said was true
We can be the question
We can be the question too
We can be the everything
We can be the ones who we run to, it's true

I never needed the light
I never thought I could pray
I always thought I could spare my knees
But at the end of the day...

The Painter

She opened up my eyes
She opened up my mind
She took away the chain link fence
I raised around myself, waiting for the sun

I took upon my soul
The heavy weight of life
And landed in a cold, wet rut
I couldn't find my way but for the help of friends

She paints ordinary skies
And lights them with the painter's eye
She opened up her heart and opened up my life

I used to feel this way
When I was just a kid
And rainbows led to pots of gold
Now, in a different way, things are just the same

Don't Close Your Eyes

Hail away
All your rounds
'Cause I have my feet
On the ground

Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes tonight

I am strong
And I am bold
And I will be here
When all is told

Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes tonight

You'll wear the crown, you're hosting the ball
You'll turn around ahead of them all...

Hail away!
All your rounds!
And watch the night fall!

And watch the sun rise!

Let's away
For another day in the river
And through it all, we won't close our eyes
Don't close your eyes tonight

Adiaua

You can break this chain
I can't hope to keep you
And you can go your way
I won't try to stop you
You can see the sunlight
I don't have to show you
And you can feel my pain
I don't have to tell you

Adiaua, we don't say goodbye

If you build a wall
I'll still try to reach you
And if you're in a hole
I'll throw rope down to you
If you call my name
I'll be right beside you
'Cause I can feel your pain
You don't have to show me

Adiaua, we don't say goodbye

SPIRIT

Waiting... nothing can compare
Firing bullets in the air
Should I surrender...
and wave the flag of white?
Maybe I’m frightened, for real

Won’t you let me introduce myself
I’m an open spirit underneath your fall
I’m an angry pilot answering your call

Staring at the blackest night
Wondering, will I have to fight
Will they surrender...
And wave the flag of white
Maybe they’re broken, for real

Won’t you let me introduce myself
I’m an open spirit underneath your fall
I’m an angry pilot answering your call

Should we surrender...
and wave the flag of white
Why are we fighting, for real?

Won’t you let me introduce myself
I’m an open spirit underneath your fall
I’m an angry pilot answering your call

THE KINGDOM

She knows something about me
My past, my dirty laundry
One day, we made the promise
But now walls are between us

Why do we always fight like this
Whe do we always seem to miss
All of the reasons we're together
Wherever went the kingdom...
 ...Our Kingdom?

I know something about her
Long hair, locked in the tower
With sand, she builds a castle
High tide, note in a bottle

I know something about her
And she knows something about me
We both know the solution
To find our resolution

A LITTLE LOVE

Hold me for another minute
Hold me for another minute
I was a small boy-
Seeing life through honest eyes
But now I am broken
And I need your arms to carry me

When I called, I was on my knees
And as I spoke, tears fell from my eyes
On my bed, I was in your arms
And all that I needed was a little love

Help me ‘cause I think I’m slipping
Help me ‘cause I think I’m spinning
Angry clouds are over my head
And I can taste the salt water
Rain drops never felt so cold

When I called, I was on my knees
And as I spoke, tears fell from my eyes
On my bed, I was in your arms
And all that I needed was a little love

THE BULL & THE FISH

He was only born just a moment ago
Tethered by a yolk, to the fields he will go
Passing every day for the sake of the seed
He was unaware that his heart was in need

Oh, for the length of his life
Turning up the red earth, pushing through the rye
Lost for the reason he should carry on
Down the road he chose in this life

Underneath the waves and the watch of the moon
Tethered to a twin, from her birth she was two
Weaving through the reeds...
... from the trough to the crest
She was unaware of the wound in her chest

Oh, for the length of her life
Turning in the tempest, pushing through the tides
Lost for the reason she should carry on
Down the road she chose in this life

She lives in the water…
…but she wants to reach the shore
Caught in the whirlpool, like so many times before
I live on the land, but I want to learn to swim
We might help each other, but she won't let me in

Oh, for the length of our lives
Calling for each other, standing side by side
Lost for the reason we should carry on
Down the road we chose in this life

BREAK MY SILENCE

So long since I made a friend... old wounds that I have to mend
I keep waiting for the long run, inside
My faith is a glowing sun...and sometimes he’s the only one who shines
When the ice falls all around me, inside

Trapped in a little cage, I feel the motion outside
I reel that I have to be here... still...

I keep the silence... I raise my defense
And start the long run to the place I hide inside me

Then suddenly my wind begins to blow
And I can feel my senses stir in me
And all of my emotions, they confuse me
See my eyes -- they’re crying
Hear my voice -- it’s crying too
Feel my heart --it’s crying
Where is my light?

Lost in an endless maze... I hear the voices outside
I reel and I long to be there... still...

I keep the silence... I raise my defense
And start the long run to the place I hide inside me

All of my life -- never free
I wanna be there...all of my life
Yes I wanna be there, all my life
Did I...

Break my silence... and raze my defense
And start the long run from the place I hide inside me?

FATHER

She sits with open eyes and tries to understand
The pastor turns a page, the church is empty

Cold, in the corner, the quiet girl
prays for her father to rescue her
She was in danger, too young to know the words

Then many years went by, she tried to numb pain
The silence in her heart is hurting her

Over the ocean, the restless girl
prays for her father to comfort her
He wants to tell her but cannot say the words

I am so sorry, my girl

And now she’s on the bridge, it’s time to make a choice
She steps into the light, it’s all around her

Hope in the balance, the lonely girl
prays for her father to answer her
She has to tell him, she has to say the words

 I forgive you father

BLUE LIGHT

Blue light…
All I see is a blue light
Nothing more than a blue light
All in all, it’s a blue light…inside

I try…to hold my head with my
chin high…to raise my arms in a
big “Y”…to stay away from a
deep dive…inside

Help me…
Save me from a cold hell
Raise me from a dark well
Break me from a hard shell

Blue light…
Can’t you tell there’s a
blue light…on the hill there’s a
blue light…on your will there’s a
blue light…outside

Help us…
Save us from a cold hell
Raise us from a dark well
Break us from a hard shell

Monalisa rise!
Monalisa rise!

IT TAKES ME AWAY

All alone...inside my head
I take a breath and start to shed
I’m so tired... I can’t even close my eyes
I force the light...
Through something burning... oh my...

It takes me away to the place
Of real emotions
Takes me away to the place
I feel the motion...

And then the light comes on
And my head spins with all of the reasons I...
...love you when I know...
...A sword is longer than a knife
Feel your blade
Oh, on my little neck
... open veins... oh my

It takes me away to the place
Of real emotions
Takes me away to the place
I feel the motion...

If you could see through me
See you...
If you could feel through me
Feel you... I erase you...

GROUNDHOG DAY

Please take care with my heart, it tends to break
Seven years ago, my chest held a wake

And time went on and I was all alone
An emptiness that I had never known
The day before today was just the same
Today is Groundhog Day

She was hurt somehow, the memories hard to keep
Seven years ago, her heart fell asleep

And time went on and she was all alone
An emptiness that she had never known
The day before today was just the same
Today is Groundhog Day

As I race to the shore... I see smoke in the sky
Then I open the door... there she lies
Please let me love you, I can’t stand to see you sleeping
‘Cause every day without you is the same day...same day

Please take care with my heart, it tends to break
Seven years have passed, and now we're both awake

And time goes on and we are not alone
From emptiness and pain a love will grow
The day before today was not the same
Today’s a brand new day

WHEN THE WAVE BREAKS

I’ll love you today
I’ll miss you tomorrow
And when the wave breaks
I’ll love you forever

And if you change your mind
And if you run away
And if you break my heart...

I’ll love you today
I’ll miss you tomorrow
And when the wave breaks
I’ll love you forever

And if I change my mind
And if I run away
And if I break your heart

BREAK MY SILENCE

So long since I made a friend... old wounds that I have to mend
I keep waiting for the long run, inside
My faith is a glowing sun...and sometimes he’s the only one who shines
When the ice falls all around me, inside

Trapped in a little cage, I feel the motion outside
I reel that I have to be here... still...

I keep the silence... I raise my defense
And start the long run to the place I hide inside me

Then suddenly my wind begins to blow
And I can feel my senses stir in me
And all of my emotions, they confuse me
See my eyes -- they’re crying
Hear my voice -- it’s crying too
Feel my heart --it’s crying
Where is my light?

Lost in an endless maze... I hear the voices outside
I reel and I long to be there... still...

I keep the silence... I raise my defense
And start the long run to the place I hide inside me

All of my life -- never free
I wanna be there...all of my life
Yes I wanna be there, all my life
Did I...

Break my silence... and raze my defense
And start the long run from the place I hide inside me?

UNCERTAIN

Take me in your arms
And unearth me with your charm
Show me from my cage
Will you lead me through this maze

Come along now and don’t worry
I know just where to go- you follow me
And if we can find a solution-
Then heaven won’t stand in our way; but

You are, in my eyes, so uncertain

Nightfall, I must rest
I will put you to my test-
“So cold...will you light the fire...for me, please”

Settle down here and don’t worry
You can rest for the night, I’ll gather leaves
And if you should dream of our union
Then heaven is leading the way; but

You are, in my eyes, so uncertain

Thunderheads, rain and confusion
No more warmth from the fire, I can’t believe-
Think I got lost in the dreaming...
And now I must go my own way; for

You are, in your eyes, so uncertain

ALL MY FRIENDS

So pleased to meet you, tell me
How do you do?
You seem to be the real thing
from the look in your eyes
But looks can be deceiving
Often leave me lonely, grieving
I’d hate to get the short end
but the stick never fails

So I wait and I wait-
No compromise...no compromise
When at last you have come
How will I know?
How will I know...

‘Cause all of my friends
Oh, they release me
No indecision, no “how should I be?”
And when the dust falls
In the dark days, all of my friends
They’ll never leave me

Will you trust in me
Will I be your friend?
Can I trust in you
Can I be your friend?

Once that part of me opens
I’m a child, and all that I want to do
Is trust with all of my mind
And all of my heart and soul
Receive you..

NOW A MAN

So many ways you ignored me
Always the same- no apologies
But I had to stay, I didn’t know the way
Without you
I challenged you but I would always smile
Then wrestle through all your turnstiles
Now I’m gonna say-
Things I stowed away a long time
A long time ago

Seaside, dreaming child
All he wanted was to sail away
In the moonshine
So far - wishing star
Would that you could help me sail away

Then seven years went by
I taught myself to learn
Just how I might survive-
I won’t put up a fight
I’ll do as you say

Hillside, growing child
Now he’s thinking should he run away
In the moonshine
So far - wishing star
Would that you could help me sail away

He stands, now a man
Still he wishes he should sail away
In the moonshine
So far - wishing star
Would that you could help me sail away

LOVE ME THE SAME

Oh I get love, love, lovin’
Lovin’ from my mother
Lovin’ from my brother
And lovin’ from my friends
But this love leaves me empty
Feeling like a shadow-
Like a cloud without his water-
A King without his throne

All of the time
I try to hoe, I try to sow the seeds
of happiness in my life
And all of the time
I wanna fall in love with you
But I am frightened to

If I love you and tell you how I’m feeling
If I love you and I say that I will stay
If I love you and I show you my emotions
Will you love me the same?

Feelings storming through my head
My skin I am trying to shed
Love me, hold me...

If I love you and tell you how I’m feeling
If I love you and I say that I will stay
If I love you and I show you my emotions
Will you love me the same?

WASTE MY TIME

Hardly any reason
For you to scold me
I haven’t done a thing
I haven’t hurt you

But you just keep on yelling
Like a preacher- selling
Oh the gifts you’re giving
I should thank you but I won’t
No I won’t...

Waste my time

Is this a lesson
Are you trying to teach
How to be courteous-
How I should be kind

And I just keep on listening
Through your words, I’m sifting
Just a point you’re missing
I should rebut but I won’t
No I won’t...

Waste my time

ALL I NEED

I try to talk to you and I
Try to make you smile and I
Try to touch your heart and I
Try to make amends-
I don’t know what it is
I don’t know what it is
You say to me and try to grin
When I ask you-
But the words, they don’t seem right

Oh, I don’t want to know
I hear the words but the truth is in your eyes
Give me the time of day
‘Cause that’s all that I  need
From you...

And you try to find the words
And you try to find the smile
And you try to find the heart
I don’t know what it is
I don’t know what it is
I say to me and try to grin
When you ask me-
But my heart it doesn’t feel right

Oh, I don’t want to know
I hear the words but the truth is in your eyes
Give me the time of day
‘Cause that’s all that I  need
That’s all that I need from you...

A LITTLE LOVE

Hold me for another minute
Hold me for another minute
I was a small boy-
Seeing life through honest eyes
But now I am broken
And I need your arms to carry me

When I called, I was on my knees
And as I spoke, tears fell from my eyes
On my bed, I was in your arms
And all that I needed was a little love

Help me ‘cause I think I’m slipping
Help me ‘cause I think I’m spinning
Angry clouds are over my head
And I can taste the salt water
Rain drops never felt so cold

When I called, I was on my knees
And as I spoke, tears fell from my eyes
On my bed, I was in your arms
And all that I needed was a little love

COFFEE SHOP

Sitting in a coffee shop
Thinking of a vibe to cop
I could imitate the one who hates
All the lies that makes us rot

Maybe I should play the clown
Or the child who wears a frown
But if I recreate my one true face
I am sure to let you down

Twenty seventh day of April
Looking at the dust on my window sill
Dreaming of the day when I can say
That my life is not a waste
Not a waste- is my life a waste?

Doctor, I don’t feel quite sane
‘Cause my head feels like a drain
Emptying my  mind of solid thoughts
They come down like drops of rain

Maybe I should have a drink
Maybe that would help me think
But if I must endure these endless waves
Then my boat will surely sink

Twenty seventh day of April
Looking at the dust on my window sill
Dreaming of the day when I can say
That my life is not a waste
Not a waste- is my life a waste?

LULLABY

Not that much to say for another day-
I sit and I wait and I hope that my solitude will soon be through
Just accept the wage, says the inner sage-
He sifts through my thoughts and he shows me self-servitude is never through

Oh, lullaby, will you sing me to sleep so I can fly in my dreams
To the ground I am bound -- I cannot move ‘cause my sky has broken...

I just wanna play for another day
I dance for the joy and I nurture my innocence like it’s a gift
You think like the steer, says the inner peer
He whips me and hates me and shows me no tolerance for this ignorance

Oh, lullaby, will you sing me to sleep so I can cry in my dreams
When I wane from the pain my eyes don’t speak
‘Cause my tears have frozen

Grow me - then I’ll
Show me - then I’ll
Flow me - and then I’ll
Know me...

I am gripped by fear - helpless like a deer
trapped in the road by the lights of a speeding car, it’s door ajar
From around the bend comes the inner friend and steers the car away
F or one more lonely day -  and what a lonely day it was...

Oh, lullaby, will you sing me to sleep so I can die in my dreams
Here on Earth, in a berth, my ship is trapped on a molten sea -- my reality

Oh, lullaby, would you shout in my ear so I will wake from this dream
For in the dream self-esteem lies like the hands of a broken clock
Is that all I’ve got?

Lyrics

  1. I Shall Be Released

I Shall Be Released

(Bob Dylan)

The say everthing can be replaced
The say every distance is not near
And so I remember every face
Of every man who put me here
But now I am broken

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now... any day now
I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
They say every man he must fall
And yet I swear I see my reflection
Somewhere so high above this wall

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now... any day now
I shall be released

Now yonder stands a man in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he's not to blame
Any all day long I hear him shouting so loud
Just crying out that he was framed

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now... any day now
I shall be released
Any day now... any day now
I shall be released

  1. Pum•kin Poem

Pum•kin Poem

Two more nights- snicker, snicker; lengthy
Resting coldly between breast plates-
Angular coffins and aging varnish; age
Breathed the last and drew it slow-
through my flexing tubes; inward; hot
Dry and dry and dry; once more

To the merry mounting post of dog-grins
and key fellowships; straighten and
strengthen lips for again and again
Fierce and tall oblong statue spinning; spin...
Accurately from two composed nexus; his
Images reversed from intermittent light;
Creeping shadows on spokes;;; He changed

Leaps forward with the red light and stops-
gleaming elements; 115; atomic weight
drizzled elegantly over arrangements...my arrangements

Spreading teeth and bloated crescent; pink
nubile lips bleeding sex; hold me- hold
Spikes eject- connecting; love me- love

Frozen moments can’t hide this; warm lust
Something secret; new and red and mashed;
Feed me in real time; sweets and canvas

For a millisecond I milled about the
intense little holes; no rebut-
Just this candle in my head;
Align the lid and watch my eyes glow;

Lyrics

  1. In A Word

In A Word

In a word, in a word
You are light
Glowing sight
But I can't see you

In a word, in a word
You are gold
Secrets told
But I can't hear you

In a word, in a word
You are gone
Through my arms
And I can't feel you
No I can't reach you
