I saw a girl last night she was standing in the light in a corner of the room she was waiting for a hand then a boy came over and he asked her to dance all eyes stopped to watch them they moved up and down with the waves of the song their moves keepin time for the rhythm then the girl looked at him and she knew what it was and she smiled as she said to him, “please twirl me one more time, and don’t stop spinning me please swirl me in your mind, so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon spin spin with me...” I heard a story bout a man he came up with a plan for flying he showed it to his wife then he said, “now darlin’ why are you cryin’ so?” and she whispered in his ear “I’ve a fear you won’t come back down to the ground” and he said, “I’ll always come back to you just help me this once to get higher up” and he kissed her and he said, “please twirl me one more time, and don’t stop spinning me please swirl me in your mind, so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon” and he was off and gone... there once was a woman lying in bed with her lover’s head upon her shoulder she said, “my darlin’ you sound so faint don’t tell me it’s time I just can’t take this” and she told her, “please don’t worry dear there’s nothing to fear in moving on but there’s one thing I’d like to ask of you” and she said, “just tell me darlin’ I’ll do anything, anything” and she said, “please twirl me one more time, and don’t stop spinning me please swirl me in your mind, so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon” and she was off and away...

Hers was a long, long-long way to go mine was beside her, behind and alone ours was as teardrop, wind into the bone ours was a cyclone… I gotta say... Thank you sweet, I can hear you now, you can hear me now, now listen deep Thank you deep, I can hear you now, You can hear me now, now listen sweet Mine was a cavern, a crease beside the road filled up with fossils, walker to his load filled with a river, dried with a moan while Hers was as thunder…. I gotta say... Words I fly... Breath as tide… Thank you sweet, I can hear you now, you can hear me now listen deep… Thank you deep, you can hear me now, I can hear you , I can hear you now

Tried to say what words can't speak through eyes pressed tight, dawn heavy closin in on me I cast it sideways, I cast it sideways I cast this anchor deep it binds me to the night, every time when I look at all the years that passed, and all the ones to be, and this that lies before us, right in front of you Like siren's callin' me, like sirens callin' me back to the rocks where I's born Every morning before the sun rose, I rose to catch the wheels from spinnin' my mind crazy with it, full of pieces and needing peace but I can't find it, so I make some rhymes of it, I take my time findin' anything' I can breathe a bit of lightning, breathe a bit of life into empty pages Every morning before the sun rose I rose to find you, still I rise to find you Tried to turn my back, my thoughts like rip tide quick your body's pullin' at me Could I cast it sideways, could I cast it sideways Even if my spoken broke to nothin’ still I'm left with a negative burned behind my eyes And every year that passes, every one to come - this taste for the words that can tell of it all Like siren's callin' me, like sirens callin', my back burden willingly worn Every morning before the sun rose, I rose to catch the wheels from spinnin' my mind crazy with it, full of pieces and needing peace but I can't find it, so I make some rhymes of it, I take my time findin' anything' I can breathe a bit of lightning, breathe a bit of life into empty pages Every morning before the sun rose I rose to find you, still I rise to find you still I rise, still I rise...

Oh Love! Tearin' me apart from the inside out so I can see myself from the inside... Oh Love... Oh Love! Tearin' you apart from the inside out so you can see yourself from the inside... Might be causin' pain. Might be coming home. Might be sayin' this is all you asked for… Oh Love! Tearin' me apart from the inside out so I can see myself from the inside... Oh Love... Oh Love! Tearin' us apart from the inside out so we can see ourself from the inside...

Come, wake, like a blow of lightning falls like rain, as the dark calls your name Come, face to face your fear, don't turn away as the dark calls your name But here, like a drowning, like a knife… here in the changing of dawn to flight I go… Is it my life then to be lost? Takin anything be caught… Is it a choosing to be love? Callin down these highest walls.. I wouldn't mind it to be light, showin all of me inside… Is it my life then to be found? Watch as seeking turn to sound… Deep roots, recall your stance -- you, born of sand, holds you in hand Trembling as a shoot 'gainst mountain - climb! with all your heart, to your name, called through dark… Here is the path and you are blind… Here is the changing of dawn to flight, I go… Is it my life then to be lost? Taking anything be caught? Is it a chosen to be love? Callin down these highest walls.. I wouldn't mind it to be light, shown all of me inside… Is it my life then to be found? Watch as seeking turn to sound…

Fall away again... Will it move you, will it... And I will raise these hands to reachin showin up, shadows lead to sun and I could save my mind for later spinnin out, shoutin to drop your guard I will need this sight to see it lookin out, callin for a home and we will take the pieces given open up, let it all unfold Will it move you, will it... Fall away again... You could lean this life to listen catchin up, tendin to what’s called and you could turn your back to leavin given out, droppin to let what holds you But we will need this breath to breathe it movin out, speakin as it is heard and we could face the madness maker tearin out, let off all this load And I will need this sight to see it lookin out, callin for a home and we will take the pieces given open up, let it all unfold Spinnin out, shoutin to drop your, spinnin out, shoutin to drop your, spinnin out, shoutin to drop your guard... You could lean this life to listen catchin up, tendin to what’s called and you could turn your back to leavin given out, droppin to let what holds you Fall away again... And we will raise these hands to reachin showin up, shadows lead to sun and I could save my mind for later spinnin out, shoutin to drop your guard and I could save my mind for later.... Will it move you, will it...

My sheets were cold tonight, had to leave them for a dying fire, burn up time for dreams Lovely soul, you’ve gone to sleep, silence empty house I cannot breathe, you’ve said too many nice things Can I keep spinning to your turns can I just fall back in your open arms and when you ask, I’ll always sing you a song bout a girl who tried to live inside a dream... Looking up at the ceiling they listened and there wasn’t time to catch the feet kicked out from under me Then I caught your eyes, please can I keep them with me for a future time, they’ll help me when I try to fly Can I keep spinning to your turns can I just fall back in your open arms and when you ask, I’ll always sing you a song bout a girl who tried to live inside a dream... Give me a book to read, talk me your mind and let me see what’s crashing round inside of you Fire hasn’t gone out yet, so can we climb the fire escape, we’ll see just as far as we want to get Can I keep spinning to your turns can I just fall back in your open arms and when you ask, I’ll always sing you a song bout a girl who tried to live inside a dream…
