Set me on the water Where the current turns to gold Sing me Hallelujah To the horizons of my soul Blow just one kiss That sets upon the breeze Together weíll feel forever Until youíre here with me We are one in everything All sounds, smells and sights Baptized in the waters That give eternal light
Iím not fooled by her strength That masquerades to give ease To the pain that she must feel But she never lets me see All the fears inside her head The same ones inside mine But we will never say a word Because the words we canít find Words would only make this real Better to sit silent with the lies Thereís nothing the truth can bring That we donít see in each otherís eye Sheís not fooled by my strength
The color that splits orange to red Subtle like folk song strings That fades into the twilightís blink Or on a chorus that no one sings Then before you notice it is gone Like the folk singer and his song Lost somewhere to the in between Where beauty goes to die In the blink of a twilightís eye
Six feet in between The sorrow of different tomorrows In worlds of different times With nothing shared or borrowed Other than the pain That sits behind †to remind A touch I will never feel Of a beauty thatís gone blind In the silent †darkness Of your leaving and my grieving Youíve gone to a better place Left me to believing That the words I place Upon your grave, they will stay For you to hear Iím only 6 feet away
Somewhere along the path Of a normal day with simple words Under a sun mostly shaded And flowers showing only stem The day became an occasion Without knowing, search or want The day would be marked forever For many- not all As a day to be retold, reshaped, reframed Overtime the occasion will grow to legend Legend will be given divine rights Divine rights will provide the purpose For the coming of this occasion But not for me, not now Today I will weep And miss the normal day
Just about a year ago Maybe it was a day ago I donít know But somewhere in between You said goodbye But that's a lie Because it was never really good Funny thing is Thereís something about the closure That makes me feel a little closer To you, who knew But Maybe we should have tried To have made it a real goodbye But now itís over And now we're closer Than weíve ever been It just took the end To figure us out To get to starting over Stopping to get started Like a wind-up toy Waiting to be...
Then came the long lost song Sleeping through winters long lost gone With falling notes onto fallen leaves A melody that hid in the colors of spring Never faded by the moon or its shades Or the shadows of stages where it once played And all it took was for one note to rest On a heavy heart on a heavy †chest To remember all that I did wrong And then came the long lost song To memories that sing only for you To a damn song that I canít undo
Fingertips drawn to dust † Hands stained by the blood of rocks † † † With his gentle brush † † † And strokes that changed † † † To the sunís mood † † † Just colorless orphans † † † Of forgotten earth † † † Until he came † † † With all the colors of grace † † † Alive in †the death of the desert † † † With a †soul ordained † † † For the artist † † † For the painter For the priest
