Misty Heights

 

New York’s sleeping

And it got me, it got me dreaming

I was going to Misty Heights you longed to find

Tell no lies in the Shewstone of my mind

 

She was weary

Now our love a distant memory

So I’m going to Misty Heights you longed to find

Promises dwell neath the eastern skies

See not clearly

The love that hangs in front of me

So I’m going to misty heights you longed to find

Go inside where wonders fill your eyes

I am waking

I am waking

I am waking

 

Yeh it got me, it got me dreaming, in the meadows

Of Misty Heights you longed to find

Go inside where the ancient spirits fly

 

Baby She Roam

Baby she roam, baby she roam

Baby she roam, baby she roam

In the heather she is never alone

Any brook she call it her home

Baby she roam, baby she roam

 

Baby she sing, baby she sing

Baby she sing, baby she sing

Of the many ancient tales that we ride

She brings the unseen to our lives

Baby she sing, baby she sing

 

At times she feels like a mystical child she says

At times her eyes they drift to the fire

Through the dust dunes with a couple of friends we glide

My love we’re never getting tired

Baby seems strange, baby seems strange

Baby seems strange, baby seems strange

In the motor of the devilish man

Her majesty they won’t understand

Baby seems strange, baby seems strange

 

Baby has fears, baby has fears

We’re so near, we’re so near

Baby she love, baby she love

Baby she love, baby she love

She brings the hope back to my life

When the shadow cloak it covets my eyes

Baby still love, baby still love

Seas of Tomorrow

 

She wakes before the sun

Far from everyone

In your stillness babe

Many choice are made, tomorrow

 

Every moment made

Is a moment to change

If you want it babe

All is there to take, tomorrow


She would often say

I’m nothing till I’m made

In your worries babe

Life will not refrain, tomorrow

 

There’s a part of me

That slips into that stream

In your longing babe

Much will stay the same, tomorrow

 

Still I’m sad to say

Courage you must tame

If you want it babe

much will have to change, tomorrow

 

Life’s a funny thing

It’s nothing more than a dream

In your stillness babe

All is there to take, tomorrow

Life’s a funny thing

It’s nothing more than a dream

And all your sorrows babe

Is much more than I can take

 

In your stillness babe

In your stillness babe

In your stillness babe

In your stillness babe

 

Eyes to the Sky

 

Speak only the worlds of young hearts right from the start

And you’ll see the duels of each day soon fall apart

 

Golding girl bringing me back to young side, fill me with life

Now I spend all of my time with eyes to the sky

 

Bring all of the whims of your sight into my life

It’s a shame that I spend much of my time blind in my strides

Golding girl bringing me back to young side, just what I like

I can spend all of my time with eyes to the sky

 

show me something I love, something I love

Give a glimpse to your star, glimpse to your star

Pull me out of this dark, out of this dark

Let me sail again the winds of your heart

Speak only the worlds of young hearts right from the start

And you’ll see the duels of each day soon fall apart

 

Golding girl bringing me back to young side, fill me with life

Now I spend all of my time with eyes to the sky

King of Culture

 

King is many men

Singer of romance

Precious jewels he had

But a precious love he lacked

 

I’m living in Lone Star

Trying to be an outlaw

Their domestic ways

Try to keep me in a strait

No sir

Theres no wound in your empire

They see right through ya

King of culture

 

Call upon your maids

To reprise their withered faith

And he knows just what to say

In lust forever chained

 

Don’t you know it’s not kosher

trying to be an outlaw 

Just trying to find my way

To another plain

Closer

To the world that shines through ya

Surrender your Sceptre 

King of culture

 

Don’t you know its not kosher

trying to be an outlaw

When your delusion ends

Try to keep a steady wind

Closer

They try to get closer

They see right through ya

King of culture 

King of culture 

King of culture 

King of culture 

King of culture 

 

Winds of Passion

 

Hollow deep in the trees

She's crested over me

Secret morning love

Gives me more than enough

Seemed like nothing could change


Her moon is rising now

She left without a sound

There’s no telling babe

When the winds of passion will take her away

 

Though we are parting now

There’s none to do but smile

Why she could never believe

I gift my heart to thee

I must figure out

Her stars are rising now

She’s reaching out through the clouds

Darling have no refrain

When the winds of passion they come your way

 

Her moon is rising now

Her cards need dealing out

Forever wishing babe

That the winds of passion will blow back to me again

 

Priestess of my heart

Mistress of the dark

Majesty’s a spark

A dreamer from the start

Precious love you are

God is on his star

Whether near or far

We keep dreaming on

 

Wielder of my heart

Silver singing star

Love them as they are

Never will they part

 

Forever wishing babe

That the winds of passion will blow back to me again

 

Play Many Play

 

Play many play in your magical ways

We seek in bare skin where new miracles lay

Still is the mind of the juniper spire

We are learning of its ways

So play many play

Know this world is yours to take

Play many play through the cardinals reign

Their jovial notions in our world take no place

So many say that were dreaming away

Did it matter anyway

So play many play

Cause its in dreaming that dreams are made

 

So many say that we’re wasting away

We never listened anyway

So play many play

In your magical way

 

See Yourself in Nature

 

Run, run run

Run, run, run

Run into the fields boy

Run, run, run

 

One, one, one

One, one, one

River to the sea are one

 

Sky, sky, sky

Sky, sky, sky

God of our moods

Sky, sky, sky

 

Cloud, cloud, cloud

Cloud, cloud, cloud

Changing with the wind now

 

Oh come show me anything

The sands, the seas, the sun

Oh come show me anything

And see that we are one

 

Moon, moon, moon

Moon, moon, moon

Light within your shadow

Moon, moon, moon

 

Some, some, some

Some, some, some

Take the fruit of wisdom

 

Ground, ground, ground

Ground, ground, ground

Things we never see living underground

 

Down, down, down

Down, down, down

Take it from the roots boy

 

Oh come show me anything

The sands, the seas, the sun

Oh you can’t show me anything

That natures not already sung

 

Natura, natura

nila frusta fachit natura

 

Mighty tree, mighty tree

Bowing with the wind

Mighty tree

Love, love, love

Love, love, love

Life is but a meadow

 

Round, round, round

Round, round, round

Life moves like the seasons

Round, round, round

 

See, see, see

See, see, see

See yourself in nature

 

Days of Yore

 

Days of yore, oh Vermeer and Van Rijn

Oh her smile, a remnant of them days

Look farther none into drear complexities

Your wild eyes, lay them on me everyday

 

In her repose she appears so candidly

You don’t find, such majesty, these days

She’s unaware that devilish smile that she makes

Just one look, is all it takes, take me away

 

Can’t you see her beauty on display?

Oh she is a master of light and shade

And did you take that tone from them days?

Oh Vermeer, draw the brook where we lay

 

What Vermeer would have gave to paint my babe

 

You Better Run

 

Though your world was a force to me

Every dawn of every day

Drawn by that jamboree

Warily I to be that way

 

Your world it twist and tore

Those dreams can drag you away

If you're scared of what might come

You better run as fast as you can

 

Give some mind to what your were told

Temptations tide can drag you below

If you find yourself to be that way

Your reverie will sink like a stone

If you're scared of what might come

You better run as fast as you can

 

If you're scared of what might come

You better run as fast as you can

 

Seed of the Sun

 

We tenderly in silences sleep

Walk to a place of Ceremony

Goddess mountain of tyrannical heights

 

Shamani with her rhythm and reeds

Tranced to a world I never believed

Stepping surely to the gold setting sun

Singing we are all one

Seed of the sun

Seed of the sun

 

Totem of egos

Towering eyes

Splendid reflections

Seen in the sky

 

Golden Magi hands a chalice to me

Curtain is drawn my eyes turn within

Followed the eagle to the long shadows end

Tell us where have we gone

Magical one

Seed of the sun


Totem of egos

Towering eyes

Splendid reflections

yeh they’re seen, seen in the sky

 

I can see beauty

I can sense fear

Those splendid reflections

Yeh they’re seen, they’re seen everywhere

 

Silbury Stone

 

Daisy girl lost in her midnight

Tripped on a Silbury stone

So ceaselessly its world came to me

Of all said and done still we are one

Me and my Silbury stone

 

Daisy took the stone to the people

Damnations are echoing now

Can nobody see it’s wonders but me

Like each every sun we’re soon to be gone

Me and my Silbury stone

 

Childish man let God sing through him

We are the same in that way

Can’t you see now dear to it’s not clear

Life is a cup you can’t drink enough

To it my spirit is bound

 

Daisy and the stone keep turning

Nothing escapes that

So vanish it must the stone turn to dust

Now the world’s less one Silbury stone

Now the world’s less one Silbury stone

Call me your own my dear

Call me your own my dear

 

Riverside

 

Province where none can find we

Silver sun rides the sky

Sink into one another

On our morning riverside

 

Stillness is the yearning

For an ever changing man

See the fruits of all the ages

On our morning riverside

 

And her song singing through me

Songs of change but none of ageing

On our morning riverside

On our morning riverside

 

Mantra

 

Going back to that hiding place

The only place that I've ever known

Dared not to look the other way

Unto the great unknown

 

See that boy gilded in reveries

Never strayed from the reach of his hand

Know he would do most anything

To see that wish unwind

 

Leave that mantra behind

Something you might find

Leave that mantra behind

Something you might find

Always that cloud hung over me

No shelter in your sight

Turning your back to the hurricane

on the darkest night

 

Foresaw your life like a tapestry

knowing every twist and turn

speak of the truth in front of you

and something you might find

 

Leave that mantra behind

Something you might find

Leave that mantra behind

Something you might find
