Ships on the water,they sail for tomorrow. Seasons are changing around the globe. There's a feeling...heads are reeling. There's a way...find your way. Softly we speak in silent devotion. Wheels keep on turning, keeping in motion. Hold back the fears,don't let time slip away. To leave for tomorrow,we live for today. There's a feeling...heads are reeling. There's a way...don't fade away. Feeling the fire,that burns inside. Follow the sun,to stay alive. Breathe in the air that we need,plant the seed. There's no time to hurry,there's no time to bleed. There's a feeling...heads are reeling. There's a way...find your way. Towers,they crumble,turn to dust,armors rust. Dive in the sea,let it be,set it free. Hearing the words,heeding the call, just like the tides,they rise and fall. There's a feeling...heads are reeling. There's a way...don't fade away. 2.) Another Day Come and talk to the mountains.Come and speak with the seas.Listening to the wind blow,watching the fires glow. Killers are on the run,they're hiding behind their guns. Their time is runing low,they've sold their souls for gold. The eagle flew over yonder,turned and said to the crow 'Something's coming down,in the valley below.' See all the good people,standing up for their rights. See all the good people,they're putting up the fight. Color the sky crimson and blue...standing trees reach for the sun...shining down upon your faces...to the horizon... our shadows we race. They live their lives full of lies...thinking the world unwise...corporate greed fulfills their need...the innocent ones, they bleed. Mother,oh sweet mother,can you hear your mother's call? If you ignore her cries,it will be a hard rain that falls. These hills have their stories to tell.They've seen them all go to hell.Hear the words the wise ones have known. We can only reap what we have sown. 3.) Dawn (instrumental) 4.) Daydreams Yesterday has come and gone and it seems to be...we're running through a field of lucid dreams. Down by the meadows, I hear a symphony...softly playing melodies,touching my soul. Memories,sweet memories,of a love so divine.Feels like I'm home again...feeling warm inside you. Celebrate the days gone by in enchanted bliss.We reach out for eternity with a single kiss. Listen in to the rhythm of a beating heart. Breathe in the breath of life...caressing your soul. One more kiss before we slip away...love me with a smile before we go to sleep. 5.) Cicada (instrumental) 6.) One More Dance Time just keeps on rolling...gold and leaves are falling. Seems such a long time ago, since we last heard the music flow.It was wonderful while it lasted, but now summer has gone away.There's a cold chill out in the air...seasons of change have begun.Autumn skies make me feel so glad ... thinking about the times we've had.Yes,our laughter used to fill these halls...now we're waiting for winter's first snowfall. I'll be standing there for you..I'll be waiting there for you.I'll be standing there for you...I'll be waiting there for you. I'd really hate to see you go...someday we'll meet again in New Mexico.Our mansions are filled with dreams...but the river has run it's course...it seems.Sometimes it's not so easy to know...what it really feels like to want somebody.We've got to live it up while we can...take our fate by the hand...yeah... Our love is beautiful... you are so beautiful.Our love is beautiful...you are so beautiful. Dance with me...let's dance before the night is over. Dance with me...let's dance while the evening's young. Dance with me...let's dance before we get much older. Dance with me...let's dance while we still are young. 7.) Sun Woke up this morning,to see the sun is shining... down on everybody...shine on you and me.Sun...sun is shining.It's up for us to see... shining in you and me. We rode the rhythm straight on through the night.On angels softly velvet wings surfing light.We touch upon the Morning Star to mark the day...but still we're flying a hundred million light years away.Sweat upon your heavenly body seems to mesmerize.Sparkling and shining like a cosmic water fall.I plant a kiss upon your brow and gaze within your eyes...helpless as a ship on the ocean herein the Siren's call. Woke up this morning...to see the sun is shining...down on everybody...shine on you and me.Sun...sun is shining. It's up for us to see...shining on you and me. 8.) Magic Spell Looking up at the starlit sky,there's no reason to wonder why.Colored lights they hypnotize,take another roll of the dice.Tried to see right through the haze,I just wound up lost in the days.Though it wasn't so easy to tell,I was caught within your magic spell. We glide through the misty moonlight..shadow dancing by the fire.We writhe like two serpents coiled...satisfying our desire. We fly into the mystic plane...our silhouettes against the sky. We laugh like innocent children...our naked eyes blinded by the light. Looking up at the starlit sky,there's no reason to wonder why.Colored lights they hypnotize,take another roll of the dice.Tried to see right through the haze,Ijust wound up lost in the days.Though it wasn't so easy to tell...I was caught within your magic spell.
