my beautiful dream

If you are leaving then leave your dress next to me / I’ll pretend you’re still in bed / don’t wake me up now and try to confess to me / don’t cry and tell me you just want the best for me / as you go out of the door shut it quietly / watch that you don’t make a peep / slowly unfasten the ropes that you tied to me / don’t feel so bad for the way that you lied to me / take all my clothes and take all my money / take all the diamonds that glitter and gleam / take all the things I gave to you honey / but don’t take / no don’t take / please don’t take / my beautiful dream / don’t call me up now and say that you’re missing me / don’t let that telephone ring / I’m in a field and I’m happy and whistling / under a tree as the warm wind is kissing me / I see you now as the clouds are unpiling / you’re flying over to me / singing so sweet as you play on a violin / you’re still in love and you’ll always be smiling / take all my clothes and take all my money / take all the diamonds that glitter and gleam / take all the things I gave to you honey / but don’t take / no don’t take / please don’t take / my beautiful dream / take all my clothes and take all my money / take all the diamonds that glitter and gleam / take all the things I gave to you honey / but don’t take / no don’t take / please don’t take / my beautiful dream.

angel of the river

Guess I’m going crazy / let’s just make this brief / see my hand is trembling now like a leaf / standing in the shadows / your legs so brown and thin / goodness sake I believe that I’m gonna give in / angel of the river hear my cry / how this foolish life keeps passing by / in your hair is where these ribbons belong / angel of the river hear my song / once I was a young man / arrogant and proud / not afraid to stand outside of the crowd / once I was a young man / do believe it’s true / all these things in time are gonna happen to you / angel of the river hear my cry / how this foolish life keeps passing by / in your hair is where these ribbons belong / angel of the river hear my song / one kiss for the river now / and one kiss for the moon / one kiss for the way that you light up the room / one kiss for your baby boy / and one kiss for the bed /one kiss for the way that you lay back your head / angel of the river hear my cry / how this foolish life keeps passing by / in your hair is where these ribbons belong / angel of the river hear my song / in your hair is where these ribbons belong / angel of the river hear my song.

take a key

One of these days you’re gonna wake up / find another bird is singing by the bay / so far away / the more that you listen / the more you’ll want to run and see / this bird so free / but take a key before you go / don’t believe that I won’t love you anymore / go and find the kind of life you’re looking for / but take a key / take a key for the door / out of the window you’re gonna see flowers / and you’ll wonder how these flowers came to grow / you’ll have to know / the longer you wonder / the further your thoughts are gonna lead / your heart from me / but take a key before you go / don’t believe that I won’t love you anymore / go and find the kind of life you’re looking for / but take a key / take a key for the door / late in the night you’re gonna have visions / there are thoughts and dreams / that no one else can tell / serve them well / the closer you follow / the sooner your eyes are gonna see / your destiny / but take a key before you go / don’t believe that I won’t love you anymore / go and find the kind of life you’re looking for / but take a key / take a key for the door / but take a key / take a key for the door / but take a key / take a key for the door.

stone on the water

Stone on the water you’re skipping away / over the dangerous sea / what were the orders they gave you today / how did this war come to be / stone on the water / you skip and you fly / rising before you descend / what do we say when it’s time for goodbye / when will I see you again / I still remember the day that you stood / out in the backyard so brave / waving your flag and a sword made of wood / someday the world to save / stone on the water / you skip and you fly / rising before you descend / what do we say when it’s time for goodbye / when will I see you again / stone on the water you’re lying awake / there in a tent on the sand / make me a promise that never will break / give up and give me your hand.

going down the rapids

Going down the rapids all alone / dead fish running down to take the sea / holy one the light is gone / each heart has turned to stone / going down the rapids all alone / stranded in the city of the night / no control and slipping on the street / holy one the light is lost / the stars are hidden from sight / stranded in the city of the night / going down the rapids now / the paddle snapped in two / you don’t know what you might have to do / holy one a ray of light / to melt each heart of stone / going down the rapids all alone / going down the freeway in a streak / each face unencumbered by a name / holy one the signs are set / the days grow into weeks / going down the freeway in a streak / going down the rapids now / the paddle snapped in two / you don’t know what you might have to do / holy one a ray of light to melt each heart of stone / going down the freeway all alone / going down the rapids all alone.

the trance

North on the 101 to Hollywood and Vine / we meet outside the Metro Line / big white sign up above / the streets and neon lights / we walk along the fabled sights / when little children come to see / and ocean waves rise up to dance / no need to wonder what will be / we’re getting closer to the trance / big white sign up above / the alley full of stars / always a line outside the bars / always a line outside until they let you in / the only way out now’s to win / when little children come to see / and ocean waves rise up and dance / no need to wonder what will be / we’re getting closer to the trance / we’re getting closer to the trance.

the invisible eye

Rise up early this morning / what goes on in the street / lines are already forming / the crack of a rainstorm is backing the beat / bigheads to the left of me / and bigheads to the right / hands you better get ready / to baton things down for a terrible flight / into this world we run / until the day that we die / we never know what will come / under the invisible eye / from sitting pretty and young  / to old and just getting by / we never know what is done / under the invisible eye / go out later this evening / what goes on in the street / hard to believe in the way that we weave / and yet never once manage to meet / bigheads on the corner / bigheads tending the store / hands you better get ready / it’s going to get rough / right outside of the door / into this world we run / until the day that we die / we never know what will come / under the invisible eye / from sitting pretty and young  / to old and just getting by / we never know what is done / under the invisible eye / we never know what is done / under the invisible eye.
