In Every Other World

 My fading heart, revived in moments here without you child

Tear down my world, and still your monument, it rises
 
My fault, it’s right
Time will heal in moments, but I’ve lost you in this whirl
We’ll meet in every other world
 
My breaking fall, you’ve seen me landing on the face side down
So that is all, I’ll keep on hanging on that first time
 
My fault, it’s right
Time will heal in moments, but I’ve lost you in this whirl
We’ll meet in every other world
 
I turn to this song in moments past dividing with an only love
But the world it still turns round
Am I the only one to feel there’s something writing
On the canvas of the heart?
 
My fault, it’s right
Time will heal in moments, but I’ve lost you in this whirl
We’ll meet in every other world

In Every Other World

In Every Other World


the Hammock Song

It’s one day a lady…. next a quivering song
Lifting me high off the page
The view for too many’s confused, with so little love
How do we get by?
Without holding onto these woes, and forget we’re just floating in space
I try remember to listen to the sound of the world before my name
In the hammock alone again, with so little time
For these wonders and worlds
The view for too many’s confused, with so little love
How do we get by?
Holding onto these woes, and forget we’re just floating in space
I try remember to listen to the sound of the heart before my name
 
Have you travelled through the mirrors of worlds beyond this place?
Will you be dreaming of love the day that you leave behind your name?
 
It’s dawn again… still up again… wait for the light to change
A cup of it… pouring it… over and up again
Hearing it… singing it… writing it… it all comes again
Sharing it… caring… and flying back over this world that bears us
In gold shimmering grace
Now I know that I’m hearing the sound of the soul beyond my name
 
And I’ve travelled through mirrors of worlds beyond this place
And I’ll be dreaming of love the day that I leave behind my name
Has the love of it all gone insane?

 


Soft Song

You packed up your world… gave it all up
As your heavens descent has left a locked home in front of me
I couldn’t find much, but I wish I had more to soothe your hurt
 
Feeling up on the rafters above me, if case you hid a key
Blow a kiss through the window inside, to the dark side
Where you stare at me
It may not of been that bad, but I’m feeling for you
 
For what it’s all worth, I aint never had no gun
I’ve not even a foe of such, that I’d ever need to
But for you my love, I’d take it all out, if you’ll help me down
 
But please don’t you shun me, cause I won’t heed
I’m stubborn on demand as can be
I’ll cut another way to inside, and if nothing else drag you out with me
I aint never played bad… I’m just thinking of you
 
And don’t that mean anything to thee from where you are
I’m where you want to be
So you won’t see me leave for anything till this is over
Your world’s still calling softly with me
No you won’t see me leave for anything till this is over
Your world’s still singing softly with me

 


Amongst Man

What worth is all that I’ve seen?
I’ve had it good, and I know I’m still young
And there’s many not blessed as me
Free to dream… Free to be
So I've seen nothing of what some have seen
For as sure as I’m singing this song
There be warring man, and dying man


I’d rather not talk of belief
I try to take things as they come
And I aint earned no right to preach
But I think I’d choose a smile over guns
Over money, and over winning
But as sure as I’m singing this song
There be warring man, and dying man
 
But what to do when everyone speaks their mind at one time
One race, religion and peace
The dollar’s down, the sea levels rise
Now someone’s gone and lost all that money we made blackening the sky


We’ve got dealt with guns, and priests on the run
And people with scowls as their greetings
I might not know much of this world
But at the moment its meaning defeats me
Give me love, love, love
 
I sit here and ponder a while
Lap up the smiles as they come
Have a laugh at this cloning called style
Or the ‘heard it before’ number one
But while it’s funny, I know somewhere
As sure as I’m singing this song
There be warring man, and dying man
 
But what to do when everyone seems to be
Pushing their own way at one time for these things that they need
Plastic toys, just sore to the eyes
Be landfill in weeks, but all that matters is that somebody buys


We’ve got the world out on credit
Before they’ve got it, they’ve bet it
Some forget that there’s people need feeding
I might not know much of this world
But at the moment its meaning defeats me
Give me love, love, love
 
And what I mean as being love is not your hot pink nasty lusting
Or even ‘I’m yours and your mine’ love
But just ‘I’ll never let you suffer’
 
Oh my sister I’ll be with you
Got your back if you need me brother
See I don’t know you, but I can help some before I go
 
In this world of bitter sweet, there lived a selfish soul divine
They called it man, but man grew weak
The more empowered he became in time
But amidst all the rubble, running makeup and stubble
There’s hearts amongst man to believe in
And while all this momentum, it’s gonna take some slowing
I think we’re far too young yet to be leaving
 
Oh my sister I’ll be with you
Got your back if you need it brother
There aint no lesson not worth knowing
There aint no journey not worth growing for
Oh my sister I’ll be with you
Got your back if you need me brother
See I don’t know you, But I can help some before I go
Give me love, love, love

 


Lucky Dream

Well I’m searching for something this evening
Though I find less the more I try
What I’ve waited for, I could’ve already found
Before what it is does arrive
So I’ll think not of what may tomorrow
Decide on my fate till the end
Just another day to sing of joy I’ve found
When I sing with my friends
 
My words only come now in pictures
So excuse me if I sit quiet and dream
Of what a magic world it would be
If we all just found we could say as we mean
 
Then a tune came and graced me this morning
From the songbird who sang in her tree
She was too high to see
But her tune, as it fell knew it would fly home with me
What a lucky dream I fell into
And I’ll always be grateful to you
The wild man said we’re all in the gutter
Though like him I’ve my sights on the stars
In this crazy world I’ll fall and I’ll float
But I’ll always be fine with my part

 


Earthchild

(hippie love song)

Like a dream in the hearts of fools she comes
And the stars in the night give her way
Cause hers is a shining love, just like the earth she’s from
She’s a light in my day
Like a song on the whistling wind she comes
And the sounds of man fade away
Cause hers is a soothing love, just like the earth she’s from
Yeah, she sings in my day
 
Heaven got nobody like you
Heaven got nobody like you… you
Heaven got nobody like you
And I can’t look away
 
Like a wave on the opal sea she comes
And caresses the sand where I lay
Cause hers is a healing love, just like the earth she’s from
Yeah she kisses my day
 
Heaven got nobody like you
Heaven got nobody like you… you
Heaven got nobody like you
And I can’t help but praise the earth she’s from
Like a dream in the hearts of all she loves
Like a song on the whistling wind she comes… in love
 
Heaven got nobody like you
Heaven got nobody like you… you
Heaven got nobody like you
And I can’t look away

 


Soultide

Watching the wave roll in
And cast their hands in faith upon these shores
Hope’s reflected off the water from the gathering tribes above
Romancing change
For the tides are slowly turning
And things aren’t half as bad as they once seemed
As we dance from the gloom to our cosmic ballroom
Surrounded by distant light, who could ever stay inside?
 
The spirit drums echo from the chambers, lifting me high above
There’s a soultide on the rise
 
So rise from your sleep, for it’s not over
The moon is full in our hearts tonight
And under a cloudless sky we’ll wonder
And like water in the sea we’ll rise
But elsewhere man is wasting his time being angry
And elsewhere man is losing faith
But though the shadows threaten
Our burning hearts will always keep them at bay
So fear not as we play
 
Spirit drums echo from the chambers, lifting me high above
There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise

 


the Fleeting Song

Won’t come out easy, but easily go
Won’t come out easy, but easily go
In the breath of the morning, I heard it all
But I know the morning soon will be gone
 
Still I’m walking easy home
Won’t come again, still I’m walking easy home
 
In the nest of the eagle I saw a song
And I saw the music feeding the young
And I saw the music changing it all
But I know the music soon will be gone
 
Still I’m walking easy home
Won’t come again, still I’m walking easy home
Death of a friend, still I’m walking easy home.
 
Still I’m walking easy home
Won’t come again, still I’m walking easy home
Death of a friend, still I’m walking easy home
