AMONG THE TREES

 

You strip

Every thought from my mind

Taking your time

And all my time

 

We breath sleep

Beside the birch-tree groves

And no one ever knows

I kissed you there

I kissed you there

A sweet affair

Among the trees

And I am on my knees

I’m on my knees

 

It’s a moment I never lost

Our love among the trees

And though I know the cost

I’m still remembering

 

Ohohoh

Our love among the trees

ohohoh

 

Cool wind blew 

Blew on moistened lips

And you bring me to the edge 

Recall the bridge

It wobbled as we walked

Even in the dark

My mind is stuck

On the moment you were scared

I held you there

Ohh you loved me then 

You loved me then 

Oh you loved me then

And you love me still

 

It’s a moment I never lost

Our love among the trees

And though I know the cost

I’m still remembering

 

 

Our love among the trees

I’m still remembering

 

The coolness of the breeze

Against my face you kissed me there

There among the trees

Among the trees

Against my face you kissed me there

There among the trees

You kissed me there

There among the trees

 THE PRICE WE PAY

 

Find 

What you want to leave behind

So we can make a life in time

We can make a life in time

 

Oh it’s price we pay

It’s the price we pay

It’s the price for all our hopes and dreams

 

All 

All we have is luck and time

we think of it as one in kind

but we know we are a dozen’s dime

 

It’s the price we pay

It’s the price we pay

It’s the price for all our hopes and dreams 

 

or so it seems

or so it seems

take my heart by the sleeves 

 

I’m singing now…

Ohohoh

 

It’s the price we pay

It’s the price we pay

It’s the price for all our hopes and dreams 

 

GO GO GONE 

 

Somewhere in a place between

Where I want to be

And what you need of me

We found love  

 

The trouble is

We couldn’t turn

The sparks into a flame

So I go search again

For what I found in you 

 

I loved you from the start

But now we have to part

So go 

Yea go 

Go go gone

I loved you from the start

And now we have to fall apart

 

I go to sleep and what I see

It’s you you’re there looking back at me

With those blue eyes I love

But now I…

Can’t believe

That I can feel

Pain and love for you my dear

Simultaneously 

And so deeply

 

Remember me

 

I loved you from the start

but now we have to part

So go 

Yea go 

Go go gone

I loved you from the start

but now we have to fall apart

 

And I hope you feel the same

I hope you feel it

I hope you feel it

ohohoh

I hope you feel the same

I hope you feel it

I hope you feel it

And I hope you know that

 

I loved you from the start

but now we have to part

So go 

Yea go 

Go go gone

I loved you from the start

And now we have to fall apart

 

Go go gone

You go go gone

 

I loved you from the start

but now we have to part

So go 

Yea go 

Go go gone

Go go gone

Go go gone

 

LIVED IN A LIE

 

Our love was like an anchor

That weighed me down

I’m sinking 

 

Deep inside her ocean

I had found

A false hope

 

We lived 

We lived in a lie

We lived

Ohohoh

 

Far beyond the island

Of her mind

Lies the truth

Unanalyzed

 

All the time 

We wasted

Oh what a crime

Moving on 

Moving on

 

We lived 

We lived in a lie

We lived

Ohohoh

 

And I want to believe

That I will be fine

But my heart is in front of the firing line

And I can’t reprieve

What is ill-defined

I can only dream of better times     

(better times)

I can only dream of better times

I can only dream of better times

Of better times

 

We lived 

We lived in a lie

We lived

Ohohoh

(rest rest your head tonight)

ohohoh

(rest rest your head tonight)

we lived

we lived in a lie

  

 

DRUNK AND COLD

 

Ohhh the sting is out

And every word I say is full of doubt

Will it bring forgiveness

Are we really in this

 

There’s a pattern in our hearts

And it’s keeping us together and apart

Do we want to end this

Or do you want to mend it

 

Is this how

How we are 

Drunk and cold

Young and old

Remember

Love

The love we had

And our warm home

Our warm home

That we called our own

 

Read and sign it here

One full page for every passing year

And when we reach the center

Will your hand still be there

 

You call me late at night night

I say something good something to be nice

Because true love is endless

And hate is thankless

 

Is this how

How we are 

Drunk and cold

Young and old

Remember love

The love we had

And our warm home

Our warm home

We called our own

 

I hope you find that

Peace of mind

That you lost when you said you won’t be mine

And now do you want forgiveness

It isn’t mine to give it

 

This is how

How we are 

Drunk and cold

Young and old

Remember love

The love we had

And our warm home

Our warm home

 

BLUE IS GONE

Goodbye

I’m bored of this life

And tired of you

 

It’s not right

A day so bright 

And I’m feeling blue

 

What am I to do

I write some words

I sing this song for you

 

And blue is gone

The blue is gone

 

Now the sun is high

And mind is numb

There’s nothing left to do

 

Just smile your smile 

And dream your dreams

And hope that they come true

 

And the blue is gone 

No blue for me

No blue for you

 

When I sing goodbye

When I sing goodbye

When I sing goodbye to you

 

La ly la ly

Away

 

When I sing goodbye

When I sing goodbye

When I sing goodbye to you

The blue is gone

 

 

SONG

 

If I listen and I hear the sound

of a tune I wrote when I was young

Tell me darling can you hear it now

The one you love to sing along

 

It goes something like nananananana

Nananananana

 

I had a story that I couldn’t say

I had to sing it was the only way

Cause if I try all the emotions fade

But the notes have a way of getting there

 

They go nananananaanana

Nananananaanan

 

Sing my heart out

Sing for real

All the things that I know

Lined it up there 

Every heart beat

With every note that I play

 

Cause if you want real

You gotta get rid of 

Every last fear 

 

Tell me darling can you hear it now

The song I wrote when I was young

 

 ILLUMINATE

 

Do you remember

Or did you forget

It was your father

Who took your doubts

And gave you faith

It was your mother

Who stood by you

And held your hand

 

Hold on little girl

There’s light

And hope 

Ahead of you 

Hold on little boy

There’s more to life

Than we do 

 

If you’re afraid now

Will you be brave

Do you have forgiveness to give

Or will you hate until the end

I know life’s heavy

And it isn’t fair

But don’t you worry

Cause what you need is always there

 

Hold on little boy

There’s more to life

Than we do

Hold on little girl

There’s light

And hope 

Ahead of you

 

And it’s gonna take

It’s gonna take

All your love

To Illuminate

It’s gonna take

It’s gonna take

All your love

All your love

 

Hold on little girl 

There’s more to life

Than what we do

Hold on little boy

There’s light and hope

Ahead of you

 

And it’s gonna take

It’s gonna take

All your love

To Illuminate

It’s gonna take

It’s gonna take

All your love

 
 

FAST-TRACK

 

You got me thinking

That world is alright

You’ve got me wondering

About the future we have

and where we’re going 

We’re on a fast track now

 

Toward something

and I hope it’s right

and not knowing

doesn’t feel so bad

so long as you’re

by my side

 

Will you love me 

As long as we’re alive

We’ll have a story 

For the other side

But don’t you hurry

Because we still have time

And don’t you worry

Nothing can bring us down

 

I’ve got you reeling

From that place you hide

I’ve got you seeing

Things you never have

I’ve got you going

We’re on a fast track now

 

Toward something

And I know it will last

So keep going

And don’t ever stop

We’re all we’ve got

 

So I will love you

Until the end of time

We’ll have a story 

For the other side

But don’t you hurry

Because we still have time

And don’t you worry

Nothing can bring us down

 

I know honey

sometimes this life is hard

but I think that maybe

every end has a start

so here’s to hoping

that we all live on

our souls flowing

into an afterlife

 

Until the end of time


I’ll always love you

Until the end of time

We’ll have a story 

For the other side

But there’s no hurry

Because we still have time

So don’t you worry

Nothing can bring us down

 

I know honey

sometimes this life is hard

but I think that maybe

every end has a start

so here’s to hoping

that we all live on

our souls flowing

into an afterlife

 

 

ON MY WAY

 

Darling I’m on my way

Walking into frame

I’ve been waiting for the day

I’ve been waiting

And I’ve been watching

 

Every word I say

And every note I play

Oh are you listening when I say 

Are you listening 

When I sing

 

Everything is fine

Everythings alright

If you believe it 

We’ll be fine

If you believe

We’ll be alright

 

The writing’s on the wall

A thing I can’t ignore

I wanted something

You gave me 

I wanted something

You gave me more

 

A place between our thoughts

Connecting all the dots 

I home now 

And I am loved

A place to go

when I’m lost

 

Where everything is fine

And everything is alright

If we believe it

We’ll be fine

If we believe

We’ll be alright

 

I DO-I DO

 

I see time 

Flying faster than our dreams

I see lives 

Of people that are lonely

So I’m grateful for you honey

And everything that go us here

So let’s ride 

This wave of love we feel

 

You might already know

Love can come and go

But sometimes it holds

And grows

 

The words I’ll say

Are running through

Imagining

My love for you

On the day

I’ll say I do

I do I do

I’ll marry

I’ll marry you

 

We try 

Uncovering the mystery

Of love

By looking back at history

Of relationships 

That only brought us misery

But now it’s fine

Cause baby now it’s just you and me

 

You might already know

Love can come and go

But sometimes it holds

And grows

 

The words I’ll say

Are running through

Imagining       

My love for you

On the day 

We’ll say we do 

I do I do

I’ll marry

I’ll marry you

 

Ohohoh

 

The words I’ll say

Are running through

Imagining

My love for you

On the day

We’ll say I do

I do I do

I’ll marry

 

 

            

BABY OLIVER

 

Your life is such a beautiful thing to see

You’ve got small hands but a big smile for me

And there’s not much better worth imagining

Then that one day

One day we will sing

 

This melody

This melody

That I sing for you

One day will you sing with me

For suddenly

Suddenly

From the birth of you

We have song to sing

 

There’s lots ahead but I think you’ve got the key

To unlock it all, to anything you want to be

Because we live a life that’s good and free

We can sing

We will sing

 

This melody

This melody

That I sing for you

One day you will sing for me

For suddenly

Suddenly

From the birth of you

We have song to sing

 

And I hope 

These words will swallow

All of your fears

Cause I pray

For a good tomorrow

And all it can bring

 

A melody

This melody

That I sing for you

One day you will sing for me

For suddenly

Suddenly

From the birth of you

We have song to sing

 

For a good tomorrow 

And all it can bring
