Brothers and sisters can I call you my friends Shall we meet by that river where the heartbreaks end We have cut one another but no prisons fall I know that one day we're going over the wall Spread your wings, close your eyes Let your love flow, come inside Spread your wings close your eyes Let your love flow come inside We are standing on an endless horizon With our faces turned into the blazing sun And we have come all this way to Armageddon Just to find that the battle has been won Spread your wings, close your eyes Let your love flow, come inside Spread your wings close your eyes Let your love flow come inside Brothers shall fear no beast in the wood And sisters they shall have themselves a Robin Hood While the shadows of fear become your friends in the night Just step away from the grave and into the light Spread your wings, close your eyes Let your love flow, come inside Spread your wings close your eyes Let your love flow come inside

The Love 05:00
You ask me if I would live my life with you While our boats are moored in this harbor from the sea But the love goes on forever And the same is true of me One love falls and breaks into pieces everywhere And one love collects them all again We may go on dreaming in this life for a time But the love within the life will never end All the way through the mirror The enchantment weaves the spell One hand moves the curtains One hand rings the bell All the way through the mirror Into the center of the flame And In that moment held forever And forever held the same You ask me if I will stay here by your side In this uncertain world where even mountains fall away So part of me is leaving And part of me will stay One love falls and breaks into pieces everywhere And one love collects them all again We may go on dreaming in this life for a time But the love within the life will never end All the way through the mirror The enchantment casts a spell One hand moves the curtains One hand rings the bell All the way through the mirror Into the center of the flame And In that moment caught forever And forever held the same

God's not dead He's merely hiding You can see him in the morning When the sun is rising Greed's not good and God's not dead I don't care what Nietzsche or Ayn Rand said The blood of every man is red And I'm not going to war They justify all the things they do With convoluted logic and The waves still pound upon the sand And will when they are gone God's not dead He's merely hiding You can see him in the morning When the sun is rising You can build a paradise Or wall yourself inside a tomb Kick against the holy womb And kick against the wounds Were still one be you so blind To fight against the living light You can't hide inside that night There's nowhere to go CHORUS Love is stronger than a lie Water's harder than a stone No one has to be alone Tears will wash you dry Round and round the Ferris wheel Of birth and death rolls round and round The master laid it on the line You can go with him God's not dead He's merely hiding You can see him in the morning When the sun is rising

I've been searching for an answer To the question that is my life I've heard theories and descriptions Nothing's proven, I need more light CHORUS I need more light To shine on me More and more light So I can see Into the center of the living soul Transform my being Lord, make me whole You work for years to buy your freedom But your freedom, it's not for sale It's yours already, you cannot lose it If you don't give up boy, you cannot fail CHORUS I need more light To shine on me More and more light So I can see Into the center of the living soul Transform my being Lord, make me whole There is a great and shining victory A star of hope in the darkest night If I could see it, I would embrace it I know you're in there, I need more light CHORUS I need more light To shine on me More and more light So I can see Into the center of the living soul Transform my being Lord, make me whole Will I awaken? Will I keep dreaming Will you forgive me, restore my sight Oh precious memory, I can't remember What you look like, I need more light CHORUS I need more light To shine on me More and more light So I can see Into the center of the living soul Transform my being Lord, make me whole The earth is turning, the sky is listening The wind is wailing, I hold on tight To this moment, I search for meaning I want to understand, but I need more light CHORUS I need more light To shine on me More and more light So I can see Into the center of the living soul Transform my being Lord, make me whole Transform my being Lord, make me whole

When darkness falls And you come to me The stars will heal this troubled world With their melody When the sands run out From the glass of time I know my love will always be true As long as you're mine And we'll go freely on our own Deep inside we are never alone As long as you come When darkness falls When darkness falls When darkness falls And the dream is done I will never regret what it's cost For the distance run So many hearts Break from despair But mine is strong and shines like the sun While you are there Repeat chorus When darkness falls On the eyes that can't see The light from our love will shine on the gates Of an endless peace And we will go on and on We will have it all And darkness will turn Turn into light When darkness falls Yes darkness will turn Turn into light When darkness falls When darkness falls When darkness falls Fade (heh heh)

Prevail 04:13
I'm looking out my window And I watch you as you dance Through the air and all the colors Of the world beneath your feet The drums are moving through the wind That you are moving through And it's as if the whole of creation Everybody finally knew Darling I must thank you You worked it out for me There is nothing left to do The prevailing wind is blowing through There is only one... It will prevail You got all that energy I see mountains wash away I see lights upon the shore I know what I came here for I think of other lifetimes When you were just as fair I can see you sparkle For a moment I was there Darling I must thank you You worked it out for me There is nothing left to do The prevailing wind is blowing through There is only one... It will prevail Right here in this moment I can feel our love increase As we stand before the angel And the ultimate release We all want to sleep with someone Then we want to waltz away Yeah but there is only one like you And I am here to stay Darling I must thank you You worked it out for me There is nothing left to do The prevailing wind is blowing through There is only one... It will prevail

No Tracks 04:34
He went on this morning She left here last week They both left somebody No one caught the thief A small frame of words In the afternoon paper A little for now And nothing for later CHORUS No one has told them They do not know They leave no tracks when they go They leave no tracks when they go They leave no tracks when they go I move like a ghost Through the graveyards of night And the smoke from the factories It curls out of sight And the wind hits the poplars In some farmers field Where nothing is growing The land isn't healed CHORUS No one has told them And they do not know They leave no tracks when they go They leave no tracks when they go They leave no tracks when they go Girls hang on the corner As heavy as time With eyes that stage whisper "Ooh baby be mine" But I'll find love some morning When love comes for me And my coffin is opened And I am set free CHORUS No one has told me And I do not know I'll leave no tracks when I go I'll leave no tracks when I go I'll leave no tracks when I go...

CHORUS Love, love, pure sweet love Love, love, pure sweet love Love, love, pure sweet love Pouring from the heaven Still in time and space Maybe you can't see it But love is every place Breathe it deep inside you Breathe it out again You can give it to a stranger You can find it in a friend CHORUS I'm talking 'bout Love, love, pure sweet love Love, love, pure sweet love Love, love, pure sweet love I don't know why you're crying Did someone make you sad Your heart can hold more love now More love than it had You know you only only suffer Thinking of yourself You'll feel a whole lot better If you help somebody else CHORUS And give them Love, love, pure sweet love Love, love, pure sweet love Love, love, pure sweet love Life can be struggle That's something we all know But love can take you further When you don't know where to go You can dig a little deeper Find that love inside Let it fill you like an ocean And float it on the tide CHORUS And bring them Love, love, pure sweet love Love, love, pure sweet love Love, love, pure sweet love

Just Like a River You carry me away Just like a river You're changing every day On your banks I've sat, my whole life Tumbling down the stairway of time The peaceful beauty of your flow Has opened up my mind Everywhere that I go It's like nothing has changed The same old, same old is still the same They say life's a river and I know it's true 'cos that river brought me to you Just like a river You carry me away Just like a river You're changing every day Just like a river You carry me away Just like a river You're changing every day TRUMPETY INTERLUDE Just like a river You carry me away Just like a river You're changing every day So many different dreams in life go by And you think you're finally here Oh, but you're twisting like a leaf in the wind Until you disappear You search and you search But you just can't find I know now what they say was true 'cos I never found nothing in my whole life Until I found you Just like a river You carry me away Just like a river You're changing every day Just like a river You carry me away Just like a river You're changing every day Every day, every day, every day....

Jesus Christ... (repeat) I gave you every thing I could Or that I thought you might be thinking of I spoke to you the hearts own words To convince you it was really love But you're like some imaginary Queen You cut my head off in the final scene I guess I was too young to understand You came here to crucify the man You are like a city burning Full of dreams that no one sees come true And your pain just keeps on growing Until this empty darkness swallows you And there is nothing you can find to fill you There's water everywhere but you won't drink Your blind and you're naked and you're hungry But love may be much closer than you think You have turned this garden into ashes Nothing you believed has become true In this field of grief you are abandoned There you are loves lost forgotten fool And there is nothing you can find to fill you There's water everywhere but you won't drink You're blind and you're naked and you're hungry But love may be much closer than you think Jesus Christ... (repeat)

Every Day 04:29
Every day that comes is like a lifetime And every day the universe is born But most of us just struggle with our demons And never understand who brings the sun But oh to understand that golden mystery To see the whole inside of every part To know the sun that's rising in the heavens Is rising all the time inside your heart Every day, every day, every day, every day Every day Now truth is not the sun nor shapely moonshine That wakes the earth with thunder or with song No truth's a jewel that's clothed in mortal blindness And it is all that's left once we've gone Every day, every day, every day, every day Every day So take heart each time you see your friend the sun rise A symbol of that sun too bright to see And know there are no chains can ever hold you When you embrace the truth it sets you free Yes when you embrace the truth it sets you free Every day, every day, every day, every day, every day...
