GIVE IT A TRY

Get off the throne

Get him alone

Get off the throne

And I’m all alone

 

Let someone else

Give it a try

 

Get us all free

Get us all frayed

Get us afraid

Of making some old master dominate

 

Let someone else

Give it a try

 

Let us all play the open way

Let us all praise the Roman way

 

Get us all free

Get us some more

Get off the throne

O those who know me

Don’t look away

Don’t ere delay

 

Let someone else

Give it a try

 

SAD NIGHT WHERE IS MORNING?

Sad night

Where is the morning light?

When will you come?

When will you shine

Into my darkened soul

Where there’s no light to grow

Anything good

Anything you would see

 

Sad night

Why won’t you speak to me?

What would you say?

What do you think

Of my thoughts today?

Oh how they want to stray

Far away dear

Far away they dearly be                

 

Took a long, long time to grow

Take a long, long time to know

Took a long, long time to grow

Take a long, long time to go

Let it go

 

NEW YORK 6AM

The early morning light

Sweeps the streets clean

Sounds collect and rise

In tower canyons

 

New York 6am

 

Evening revelries

Are safely sleeping

Melted all away

As whisper fading

 

New York 6am             

Do you see the sunrise

On the eastern skyline?

Do you feel the sunrise?

Do you feel the morning light?

 

And if you know the way out why do you always want to stay?

And if you love the country why does it rub you the wrong way?          

 

The weepy evening light

Lays its head down

Cabs go drifting by in yellow waves

No more misery

your eyes are singing

No more misery the sun has set til

New York 6am

 

BLOW MY MIND

Suddenly, softly, warmly

You fall behind

Mystery over me under me

And blow my mind

 

This sorry ever after

This sorry after no more

This sorry ever after

This sorry after no more

 

Suddenly, softly, warmly

You held my hand

Water me cover me reach me

And blow my mind       

 

This sorry ever after

This sorry after no more

Now and the ever after

Long before the ever after you knew 

 

* choral interlude

 

Suddenly, suddenly, subtly

You rule my mind

 

LATIN BLUES

Drift and Fall again

But it’s different this time     

Don’t worry about the ways

Or the number of my days

 

Rise and Fall again

But it’s different this time

Wherever winds may blow

Wherever waves may crash

 

No More War

No More War

Don’t worry about your days

Just worry about the ways

Just stay blue

 

All within your heart

No longer on your mind

Wherever winds may blow

Wherever it may go

 

No More War

(don’t look back)

No More  War

(don’t look back)

 

Don’t worry about yours days

Just worry about the ways 

Just stay blue

Just stay true

 

FAST FORWARD REVERSE

Don’t turn around 

Don’t shut the door

Don’t shut me out

I’m knocking

 

Don’t fade away

Don’t disappear

Don’t leave me here

I’m here

 

Oh it’s easy

 

Just contemplate

Just think it through

Just close your eyes…

Just contemplate

Just think it through

Just close your eyes…

 

Oh it’s easy

 

A ROSE IS A ROSE

A rose is a rose is a rose

Just like everybody knows

You feel the grass between your toes

And you smile

 

She knows I’m dreaming

But she likes me anyways

She sees me singing

But she likes me anyways              

 

A rose is a rose is a rose

Just like everybody knows

You feel the grass between your toes

And you smile

 

*IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHY

If you don’t know why

you can’t see me

any other way 

 

If you find it hard

to believe it

any other way

 

If you find it hard

then go seek it

find a way away

 

Oh solid as a rock

solid as the sand

the sinking sand

that’s where I am         

 

If you find it hard

to believe it

any other way

 

If you find it hard

then go seek it

find a way away

 

Oh solid as a rock

solid as the sand

the sinking sand

that’s where I am

 

SUNSET - MOONRISE

Melody

Dewdrops

Melody

Snowfall

Harmony the way it all fell out

or not

 

Where you are

I cannot go

Where you are

I’ve been

Look around

The sun is gone

Round and round you’ll look

But you won’t find

A thing      

 

Melody

Life falls

Melody

The heart falls

Harmony the way it all works out
