TEARS OF RAIN

You in the rain
Hailing a taxi
Walking through water
The first of July

Open the door
Fall in the backseat
Wiping the rain like tears
Tears from your eyes

From your eyes
The rain’s like tears from your eyes
In disguise, in disguise
No sadness is making you cry

West to the East
The thunder is rolling
There’s no controlling
What falls from the skies

Keeping your faith
Down through the city
Wiping the rain like tears
Tears from your eyes

From your eyes
The rain’s like tears from your eyes
In disguise, in disguise
No sadness is making you cry

Look for the sun
When it’s returning
It’ll be burning
The clouds from the skies

Open the door
Into the rainbow
Wiping the rain like tears
Tears from your eyes

From your eyes
The rain’s like tears from your eyes
In disguise, in disguise
No sadness is making you cry

From your eyes, from your eyes
The rain’s like tears from your eyes
In disguise, in disguise
No sadness is making you cry

2. IF YOU CAN

If you can, stop your crying
These days won’t last forever
Just pull yourself together now

Remember how you marched with drummers
Sang in the street
Inside the rain you didn’t hide
You never tried to look for shelter under a tree
And now there’s no place you’d rather be

But there’s no use in lying
Not to yourself or others
Look at you run for cover now
While falling down

Like sheets of metal slashing the sky
The rain is only blinding your eyes
And summer flies away without you touching the sea
And now there’s no place you’d rather be
Running free

Sought out your demons
And taught them to speak
And then believed all that you heard
Every word
A crash of cymbals deep in your ear
A shock releasing all of your fears
In a flood of tears

If you can, stop your crying
These days won’t last forever
Just pull yourself together now

3. FROM NOW ON (instrumental)

4. DREAMS

Long through the night
Turning like time
Trying to forget
Visions burned in my mind

Dreams take me down
Dreams turn me around

Anywhere anyplace
You do an about-face
Take a look at yourself
Do you see somebody else?

Blown against the wind
Churning the air
Drown in oblivion
Living without a care

Dreams take me home
Dreams don’t leave me alone

Anywhere anyplace
You do an about-face
Take a look at yourself
Do you see somebody else?

Long through the day
Walking away

5. EVERLASTING DAY

Come back and see me sometime
Come back and teach me to be kind

I know it’s hard to see too far
When all is dark ahead

You say the great unknown
Is my one and only home

I know it’s strange to hope for change
When change is all around
All around, all around, all around…

Come back and try me again
I may surprise you in the end

I know it’s wrong to want what’s gone
And gaze too long away

But this will pass so slow, so fast
This everlasting day
Everlasting day
Everlasting day
Everlasting day, day, day…

6. OH IT’S OKAY

Oh it’s okay, I understand
We were not meant for silence
We keep our troubles so far at bay
Let ‘em go away
Let ‘em go

From now on I do swear
I will not look for answers
Nor reach above for the stars
Or chase butterflies in haste
Butterflies

People say that you’re crazy
You’re not crazy at all

Pony ride ‘cross the moon
With a pouch full of gold coins
You gaze overhead through the bars of light
Out of sight you are
Out of sight

People say that you’re crazy
You’re not crazy at all

Oh it’s okay, I can go
I was just trying to be near
The warmth of the flame from your heart and mind
It’s so hard to find
It’s so hard to find
It’s so hard

7. MOVING ON

Moving on without slowing
Moving on without knowing
What’s ahead further down the road
Moving on and there’s still a ways to go

Looking back makes me humble
Looking back makes me stumble
Over walls that crumbled long ago
Moving on and there’s still a ways to go

Only one thing I’d be hoping
Somewhere along the way
That our paths could be crossing
Some not too distant day

Moving on ever changing
Moving on ever aging
When it ever stops I wouldn’t know
Moving on and there’s still a ways to go
Moving on and there’s still a ways to go
Moving on and there’s still a ways to go
Moving on and there’s still a ways to go

8. CACTUS DREAMS (instrumental)

9. DAYS ON FIRE

Been a long way to go
Lost on roads of melting snow
Days on fire
Out in the cold

When there’s no light at all
Take your hand and find the wall
Overtired
Shadows fall

On those wheels you’ve been all around
Rolling up and and rolling back down

In your heart’s border town
You did your best to live it down
Days on fire
In shame you drown

On those wheels you’ve been all around
Rolling up and and rolling back down

Can’t you sleep?
Up all night
It’s you alone in the fight
Overtired
And over-wired

Live your life
Live your life
Live your life
Live your life

10. MARIELLE

It’s a strange world, mademoiselle
With you across the sea
And no plane or even ship
To carry you across to me
To carry you across to me

There’s no heaven, there’s no hell
If you don’t believe
But there’s a darkness like a well
With walls too high for you to leave
With walls too high for you to leave

Marielle
Marielle
Marielle

It’s a sad world, Marielle
Until we meet again
Every time I hear your voice
It puts me on my feet again
It puts me on my feet again

Marielle
Marielle
Marielle

11. GO TO YOUR BED
Lyrics by Nayeli a Z

Go to your bed
Lay down and start dreaming
With adventurous angels
Ready to go and play

Go to your bed
Lay down and start dreaming
Angles who protect you
And coddle you like your mom

12. TIME AND SPACE

How can I find you when you’re not there?
Touch you when you’re gone?
See you when you’re nowhere?
How can I carry on?

Time’s a weight that’s pushing me down
Space a place to fall

Look in my eyes if you can see me
My mind if you’re alone
My hands and if it’s easy
Hold them with your own

Time’s a wall that keeps us apart
Space a place to crawl

Time has been endlessly moving along
Pulling you further away
I know you had to leave
It wasn’t your fault
Given the choice you’d have stayed

I hear the traffic through the window
The drunkards in the street
The whistle when the wind blows
And my heart skips a beat

Time is all that I’ve ever had
Space a place to call

Time has been endlessly moving along
Pulling you further away
I know you had to leave
It wasn’t your fault
Given the choice you’d have stayed

How can I find you when you’re not there?
Touch you when you’re gone?
See you when you’re nowhere?
How can I carry on?
