From The Inside - Visions

LIGHT YEARS
9/1/07

In a world that’s expanding
In a life so demanding we must learn to be
Shaping new realities
The horizon is changing
A universe rearranging what was once believed
What we can dream can be achieved

And despite my darkest fears
I want to live a thousand years
I want to be here when we come of age

We can ride a beam of light
We can watch the stars collide
But the future lies inside us every day
And the world goes passing by
In the blinking of an eye
And we’re still light years away

While the stars are conceiving
Best and brightest achieving chances for mankind
To lose our faith and gain our minds

And despite our deepest fears
The answer lies in new frontiers
To boldly show where we could all go someday

We can ride a beam of light
We can watch the stars collide
But the future lies inside us every day
And the world goes passing by
In the blinking of an eye
And we’re still light years away

Smoke and gunfire finally clearing
Might no longer making right
Flags and borders disappearing
All would see the light

We can ride a beam of light
We can watch the stars collide
But the future lies inside us every day
And the world goes passing by
In the blinking of an eye
And we’re still light years away
Ride a beam of light
We can watch the stars collide
But the future lies inside us every day
And the world goes passing by
In the blinking of an eye
And we’re still light years away

So close to gaining ground
But the clock is winding down
And we’re still light years away



MAKING WAVES
9/1/07

There’s a part of her life
That she’s had to outgrow
To push into the past
What used to be her everything
And the memories are still fresh
But they’ve lost a little sting
What will tomorrow bring

She’s making room
She’s making waves
She’s making sure that he’s a part of yesterday
And she’s not alone
So she’s not afraid
She’s making waves

She finally got around
To changing all the rooms
Because things are only things
But their weight can hold us down
And there’s some stuff out on the stairs
To be given away
And she smiled today

She’s making room
She’s making waves
She’s making sure that he’s a part of yesterday
And she’s not alone
So she’s not afraid
She’s making waves

There’s a handful of regrets
And a list of things undone
There were promises unkept
But those are there for anyone
As she steps out of that house
She might make a little stir
Today belongs to her

She’s making room
She’s making waves
She’s making sure that he’s a part of yesterday
And she’s not alone
So she’s not afraid
She’s making, making waves
She’s making room
She’s making waves
She’s making time for all the things she put away
And she’s feeling good
And she’s feeling brave
She’s making waves



VISIONS
8/31/07

Remember the first time you realized
That you stood a little bit outside
Of everyone else
Apart from the stream
A watcher with so few friends
Asking questions while others went ahead
A seeker of visions
A dreamer of dreams

Watching and waiting I know how you feel all too well

So to the lonely ones
I send this song of love
May your restless heart
Come under its spell
And to the last refrain
These visions will remain
I wish you peace
I wish you well

You took shelter in a world inside
Disenchanted how others live their lives
Like dogs in the winter
Like thieves in the dark

Hoping and praying a spark may still bring us to light

So to the lonely ones
I sing this song of love
May your restless heart
Come under its spell
And to the last refrain
These visions will remain
I wish you peace
I wish you well

I wish you well
You do well to feel displaced
To mourn the passing of our grace
The better angels of ourselves
Can never be replaced
 
So to the lonely ones
I send this song of love
May your restless heart
Come under its spell
And to the last refrain
These visions will remain
I wish you peace
I wish you well



MOMENT TO MOMENT
8/22-8/31/07

Stormy nights
Wildest days
This is not a passing phase
Empty bottles
Open doors
Sleeping it off on the living room floor

I’ve been chasing a different dream
For far, far too long
Like a laughing wind it teases me along
On and on

Moment to moment
I am living where I stand
Moment to moment
Like slipping grains of sand
Moment to moment
I redefine everything I know
Never sure where I’m heading to
But here I go

For the record
Set it straight
I don’t blame my troubles on fate
Poison apples
From the poison tree
I know damned well what’s good for me
 
I’ve been building from different plans
Every step of the way
And I’ll take every chance
To pass up the work
And play, play, play

Moment to moment
Every second of our lives
Moment to moment
Second chances will arrive
Moment to moment
Change is all that stays the same
The one thing I’ll leave behind me
Will be my name

Moment to moment
I am living where I stand
Moment to moment
Like slipping grains of sand
Moment to moment
I redefine everything I know
Never sure where I’m heading to
But hey!
Moment to moment
Every second of our lives
Moment to moment
Second chances will arrive
Moment to moment
I’m caught up in the undertow
I can either sink or swim
Or just let go



PUSH ME OFF
8/31/07

Picture me the leading man
Snow white horse and flashing blade
A rebel force at my command
A reckless charge to the barricade
You are the lady to be freed
One look is all I need to

Push me off, push me off the edge
So I can fly to the unknown
Push me off, push me off again
Into a love I’ve never known
Push me off and hold on tight
Together we will fly tonight

Picture me a pirate king
Heart of fire and feet of clay
Dare the chance but fear the sting
Spirit willing, head gets in the way
I saw your face I was undone
I know you’re just the one to

Push me off, push me off the edge
So I can fly to the unknown
Push me off, push me off again
Into a love I’ve never known
Push me off and hold on tight
Together we will fly tonight

Your love is adventure
It’s the thrill and it’s the power
Dress me up and turn me loose
I’ll be your man of the hour
 
Push me off, push me off the edge
So I can fly to the unknown
Push me off, push me off again
Into a love I’ve never known
Push me off and hold on tight
Together we will fly tonight



TELEMETRY
8/31/07

I am a traveller I run where I will
Watching for those who move in for the kill
Crossing borders a rush with no sound
In constant motion I’ll never be found
Every contingency has been thought through
Right up until I’m blind sided by you

I never realized how good this could feel
Letting go of the steering wheel

You have broken through security
I surrender to your touch
Now your signal has its hooks in me
You and I have telemetry

I’ve broken cover, she’s bringing me in
Willing surrender to her discipline
Uncalculated the power, the pull
Now I’m receiving her love to the full
Now when I run I’m not running alone
I’ve got a signal that’s guiding me home

Out in the open just where I want to be
Making sure you cover me

You have broken through security
I surrender to your touch
Now your signal has its hooks in me
You and I have telemetry

I have been captivated
Body armour penetrated
She’s get me triangulated on her screen
 
You have broken through security
I surrender
Now your signal has its hooks in me
You and I have telemetry
You have broken through security
I surrender to your touch
Now your signal has its hooks in me
You and I have telemetry
