Oh when the saints go marching in Riding upon an angel’s wing I’ll be waiting in that number Coming home again to you Oh when the winds they rush me by Fighting against mountains and tides I’ll be stronger than anyone Come what may Time went passing by Oh time went passing by Oh time this is where I found your key And every time that I confide About everything I kept inside Every heartache, every answer Every heartache, every answer My heart aches for the answer That I seek within

I watch the morning crumble I saw snowflakes falling On a cosy chair I think that it’s time for me to rest I take the weight off my shoulders I felt as light as a feather On a rosy bed I think that it’s time for it to end I know the reason the seasons have changed Even diamonds fade in time I don’t have the courage to take on tomorrow So I’ll leave this world behind It’s once upon a time Love’s gone on and by These words I won’t feel Yet so easily deprive Staying up a little longer To follow the light (Light of the morning) I draw the closing surrender Blind to distress and contentment Into memory lane I fall as I slowly drift away The leaves are falling There’s no returning The sun is shining I am crumbling This is the real life, and I’m gonna blow it This is the real life and I...

Streets of tired endeavours Walked in vain Wishing someone finds you When you’re down in pain You came back with bloody hands I know Then I saw you there People were walking You were standing still In the pouring rain Even the skies are crying Something to seek Something to hide You didn’t have a choice You had to lie In a harsh world like this You’ve got to pretend your way through You’ve got something to seek Well, something to hide I know you didn’t have a choice You didn’t say goodbye In a harsh world like this You’ve got to pretend The impossible You’ve always wanted And I hate to say that You are wandering It came as no surprise I’ve always known I know, I know, I know Spinning round in the world I don’t follow I think about the times I know you’ve been through You’ve got no choice We’ve got no choice, inside

Sunny day But I was buried in the cold Wondering when My baby’s coming home Forever, son Oh mama’ll keep on walking, baby I’ll keep on trying I don’t wanna cry But I missed my boat But I won’t give up hope Won’t give up love, oh baby I’ll make it through In my usual way, on a usual day I’ll keep it cool In my usual way, on a usual day Tomorrow will never know Today has come and gone Don’t worry about maybes I’ll be fine on my own We used to watched the clouds roll by On Sunday afternoons You’d lay in my arms all night While I sing your favourite tunes Funny how I’ve tried to recall My childhood daydreams The craze of endless longing For reasons no one could ever know But I won’t give up hope Won’t give up love, oh baby

On the isles of dreams There’s a sunset in every hour In the gardens Heavy spirits in the air In a blink of an eye I was slipping into Saw the twilight I must be getting closer Knowing what's going on I know it’s coming on Caught between the lines Of truth and illusion Frozen in time Then I heard her crying And she calls me Soft yet clearly On the silent cold water On a lonely ivory tower Then she hears me Strong and surely And I began to wonder How I became to wander

The trees are off-white Dark clouds are in sight The leaves float away Oh honey, don’t you stay Water turns to gold Grey rainbows form above Shimmering subtle glow Believe me, you ought to go Wonderful, red roses bloom Violets are complicated Teardrops I fear But time stood still Someday I’ll return to this page The flower starts to fall No more red green orange The sound from the cello Send shivers down my bones Perse pierce through my skin I shall see you in my dreams Maroon flush to the brims Oh, my beloved mahogany Wonderful, red roses bloom Violets are complicated Teardrops I fear But time stood still Someday I’ll return When will I return? Someday I’ll return to this page

The light in the sky Shines upon the road When the world is broken And all the love has gone The lines in the sand Mark a thousand miles of trying When the tribe has spoken It’s me who don’t belong Tonight the flowers fall And the winds will howl their songs Let the fire burn as a beacon Guide the souls back to their homes The light that I will follow To the keeper of all sorrows For each new forsaken story That’s told An elderflower falls The tears of the kind Break the angels’ seal of silence As pain is forgotten Salvation lies forlorn

The shine of deadly steel In a motion, I can feel Climb the walls of lies Incandescent like the sun It’s not that I can win I shed my home While keeping my mind So if it’s real Don’t take me up until Wish I could have the wheel of time Wish I was for a moment blind I wish I could, I wish I was I was born to the dawn With my arms I’m a vagabond Up and tall I can stand ten feet I’ll walk alone and I won’t fear Lived my life like it was given today But now it seems I have no tomorrow Took a bullet in my state of shock What little hope I had was gone I freed my soul And put up a fight So if it’s real Don’t take me up until Wish I could bear the tree of life Wish I was just a little child I wish I could, I wish I was I wish I could Turn it around So if it’s real Don’t wake me up until The morning star breaks out above Don’t take it away Just let me stay The shine of deadly steel In my soul, now I can’t feel

Life and emptiness The line ain’t crystal-clear There lies a mystery Far away from here I sit alone at night and wonder How could it be found? Where the stream flows, I will follow I was born to pain Innocence comes and fades In search for truth in mind In the world today I see I dream, I try No matter how many skies I hope you will run free Together we’ll find our peace When the storm in the winter night Cometh slowly I’ll face the cold in the mist of life When it all comes down, I believe That the story will come to an end

Lavender girl I'll sing you this song Before I sail on through No one ever told you so No one ever said it's true Lavender girl I’ll give you this world Before I leave you to I know it’s hard not to cry But you’d never ask me why I’m gonna find my way back home Before I go astray I wish I could hold you I wish I could say I’m gonna find my way to Rome Forget our loves and hates I wish I could touch you I wish I could, I wish I could stay Lavender girl I’ll save you this love from our memories Tinted by the golden suns Together we had so much fun Lavender girl I’ll leave you this world Before I sail on through You are not the only one Who cares about who you’d become This is goodbye Well, if you don’t mind Now’s the time Now’s the time

Dear Jake Hope you’re doing fine It’s been a while since we last spoke Fifty years of shame In a faraway land All this time, nothing but the usual Now that I’m timeworn and aged Blown by the wind of change Times change, and we with time Only memories remain I have trouble sleeping at night Think about old friends all the time Darkness became my only friend As the world hurried by Got stuck and I got left behind My hands hurt, but I’ll try to keep in line Now that I’m timeworn and aged Bound by the road of change Times change, and we with time Only memories remain Now that I’m timeworn and aged Surrender to the fear of change Times change and we with time Only memories remain

Take me far away from here Who knows I might find somewhere dear Forget all the troubles I knew And who knows the tears of the few Maybe it’s time to say Maybe it’s time to say Forgive me if I lose my way For tomorrow is a brand new day I'll follow the heart of my sail For love, I’ll take what is real I'll keep searching till the waters run dry And you'll know that at least I've tried Hush now baby, don't say a word Hear the echoes of a free gallows bird Maybe it’s time to say Baby it’s time to say, goodbye
