walking, i've been up and down this road a thousand times feeling like a circus act a cage a chair a lion pounding at the rage built up inside wounded by the feelings i can't hide i'm so sorry, i'm so sorry i'm so sorry now wishing for the strength to let it go knowing it was never what it was triggered by remembrance of the past drawing conclusions did i did i pass the test i'm so sorry, i'm so sorry i'm so sorry now but the love is coming back to me.... the love is coming back to me sorry that the cycle turns around turning another soul into the web of lost and found listen to the heart come back to life hoping for forgiveness in the night i'm so sorry, i'm so sorry i'm so sorry now but the love is coming back to me... it's coming back to me
show me your poems i'll unravel your song i'll pick through the treasure of your tender thoughts i'm swept away i'll watch you in moonlight i'll touch you at dawn i'll spread out the blanket of my gentle form i'm swept away i'm swept away in the morning we'll be free to touch the mountains and ride out to the sea birds flying high on an ocean breeze and salt air and flowers lift me up and drop me to my knees i propose to live inside this emotion that i feel my heart explodes and my head begins to reel and sway i walk into the river the current is so strong testing the water i'm trying to hold on i'm swept away i'm swept away
traveling on a highway through centuries mixing it up in a couple of ways the tree grows high the forest floor looks like deep warm carpet where souls lie in the loam only a fire so bad in its devouring need opens up the darkness and lets the others breathe and we are all together in our fields of light hungry for the gathering of spirits in flight settle down... in the afternoon settle down... i've got chocolates & bread settle down... there's no room here for fear settle down... there's only love instead watching hands clasped together in silent prayer i only wish for truth in truth i dare trust the instincts of a butterfly innocent and proud as the deep blue sky changing my skin again it's time to break it open this is simple medicine drink it up and let your new life begin bound by the memories and i feel withdrawn and i know now what you're going through when there's no place left to run
i pulled out the biggest book that i could find encyclopedia and looked for your name dreams fall down from the sky creating a another way to see the ground before me i dream to be a waterfall turned into me, turned into a buttercup and start melting spilling out upon the floor seeking cracks amongst the boards i go without saying on the bottom stair cry for me upon the floor follow me into the fabric of what i am weaving a tapestry of green and gold a children's tale to unfold i know that i'm leaving bushmen, doctor, merchant, cook, all of them can sing inside their heads that are turning across the sea i see the lights another ship comes home tonight i hope all is well on the bottom stair i wish that i could be in another time and place but wherever i go i always see your face on the bottom stair
night falls and the shadows speak earlier and earlier in the coming weeks i feel they call it winter but it's really just a chance for the grass to chill before the summer dance out here oh well i want to know why i miss the rain why do i miss the rain they give us water but no one knows where it's from and why it flows uphill and deserts talk to shining seas and fallen dreams are filling giant screens with scenes i want to know why i miss the rain i want to know why i miss the rain why do i miss the rain i want the world to change i want to see it clean and free of pain i want the rain i need the rain i don't know why i feel so dry i feel so dry i miss the rain
as the days go by we climb into the tree we search the endless sky for hidden meaning on this day i will find a way this day i will find a way as the wheels turn 'round, as the wheels turn 'round, tell me what you have found i'll wait a thousand years i'll walk into the storm i'll face my deepest fears i'll die and be reborn just tell me why we're going 'round as the wheels turn 'round as the wheels turn 'round tell me what you have found
into long night into quiet night darkness chips away to the hammerin days into short day into winded day bulleted crisp day quickly hammered away into long night respite from the sound let the moment take bring the rooted ground into short day clouded hanging day washing endless dreams that never stay nothing ever stays nothing ever stays into long night bask in candlelight let the fire grow warming brittle bite into short day drawing countless hours to be held at large for winter's flowers into long night raise the glass and sigh to the sweet breath to your lover's thigh into short day stooping cluttered day stones once piled high fall away nothing ever stays nothing ever stays
air conditioned contradiction synthetic and cruel i'm worried yeah i'm worried about the things that we do self absorbed and self possessed my skin's turning red driving to the future are we being led into an age of discovery an age of repair an age of recovery are we already there? when i look into the pasture why do they stare back at me have all the sheep gone blind? why have all the sheep gone blind? poor man he understands he's the prophet of doom he knows what's going on inside this balloon the bubble is bursting hats off to invention the wheels turn mighty slowly when it comes to prevention and when i look into the pasture why do they stare back at me have all the sheep gone blind? why have all the sheep gone blind? big hole in the sky burning hole and i wonder why big hole in the sky burning hole and i wonder why i wish that i had a needle and thread but i'll just cover up my head i'm not fresh i'm just as bad as the rest screaming from the safety of my humbleness i've got the color i won't last long so i'll be laying low with my blinders on and when i look into the pasture why do they stare back at me have all the sheep gone blind? why have all the sheep gone blind?
some things remain hidden some people hide themselves cloak of insecurity falls behind the couch coins under the cushion a buried treasure nothing gained nothing spent i wonder where the money went hello heaven i'm in your kingdom i have to get out the life within reaching in and letting out all that you know breaking down the silent snow beats the heart of a bird clutching at straws trapped beneath the camouflage of house and car hello hello i'm in your shadow i have to get out the life within crossing on to high land easy steps to learn there are many corridors in which to turn choices all around distractions from without nothing lost nothing learned fan the flames and let it burn let it burn let it burn
