love is the speed of light

love is the speed / love is the speed of light it’s all i need / love is the speed of light you can’t exceed / joyous the sound / joyous the sound that fills my ears when you’re around / joyous the sound that echoes through the canyons now / beauty’s the sight / beauty’s the sight of sunshine in your eyes tonight / love is the speed of light / the beauteous sight / the joyous sound / the god of love will make it now / love is the speed / love is the speed of light it’s all i need / joyous the sound we’ve found resounding through the town / beauty’s the sight of sunshine in your eyes tonight / goddess of love i gotta have your loving now / goddess of love i gotta have you naked now / love is the speed / love is the speed of light / the beauteous sight / the joyous sound / the god of love will make it now / goddess of love, i gotta have you naked now / the beauteous sight / the joyous sound / we’ll make it now / (can’t fake it now / we’ll take it slow / we’ll listen now / be patient now / we’ll make it now) / love is the speed / all that i need

 









seventh avenue

they got everything they wanted / and then some / and still some were skeptical / but all our friends and neighbors gathered / to witness the spectacle: / chariots of golden floating / straight down seventh avenue / coming for to carry me back home / back home to you / and up in the heavens / down in the floor / i got your vibration shaking me / like never before / i got all i need and nothing more / if i had a plane i’d spell out / your name / across the sky / and if the wind should blow the letters away / well i don’t mind / i looked up to you for so long / i went blind / lost my common sense / but when i look at us from far away / it all makes sense / ’cause up in the heavens / down in my core / i got your vibration shaking me / like never before / i got all i need and nothing / i got all i want and nothing more

 












everybody likes a pretty girl

everybody likes a pretty girl / everybody wants someone who can’t be his / they say there’s more to life than pretty girls / but if there’s more to life i don’t know what it is / i went along with every ruse that she played on me / she put me down to break my pride, still i waited so patiently / to find a way to turn the light in her eyes on / to cut a key that eventually might open up that door / you know i never wanted anything more / everybody likes a pretty girl / everybody wants someone who can’t be his / i sent you postcards from the brink of insanity / wrote you song after stupid song and you called it my vanity / and if desire is the root of my suffering / i never want to want again / i’ll want nothing at all / except for sitting here just waiting for the call / everybody likes a pretty girl / everybody loves it when you say you’re his / they say there’s more to life than pretty girls / but if there’s more to life i don’t know what it is

 












the only way out is in

first i will ask myself what i will be and then what i must do / keeping the silence in my heart i know there is no word for truth / we can be free from desire and woe / if we learn how to learn, we can know how to know / or we can be trapped in samsara and sin / the only way out is in / craving the answer to a problem that our logic keeps concealed / slaving away until the moment at which all will be revealed / we can be free from the shackles that bind / the useless restraints that we place on our minds / or we can be trapped in samsara and sin / the only way out is in / death is a friend, the great advisor / keeps my lies from taking root / keeping the void inside my heart / i know there is no word for truth / no way to escape / there’s no place you can hide / but if you know where you’re going the world steps aside / you’ll see me again in samsara and sin / the only way out is in

 












lost

lost without your love / i wish i could hold you / scold you for leaving me and then laugh it off / oh so many things i wish i could tell you / and i’m wishing you well too / wherever you are, anywhere you are / all mixed up in pain and pleasure / brace myself for stormy weather / oh, why’d you have to go? / why’d you have to go? / ah, well it’s alright babe / i think i know / here’s my heart of hearts / i’m so glad that it’s broken / ’cause now it’s wide open / and ready for love / from the sky above / deep down in my dreams / you’ll always be near me / and i know you can hear me / wherever you are, everywhere you are / (anywhere you are, there you are) / sorrow calls for celebration / chalk it up to initiation / oh, why’d you hurt me so? / why’d you have to go? / ah, well, it’s alright babe / i think i know

 












heartstrong

i want an eye with which i can see all my lies from outside looking in / and when i meet myself on the street like a stranger can / this is what i will say to the man: / if you’re heartstrong / there’s no way to be lovelorn / ’cause it’s always around you / in the air that you breathe in the morning / sunshine surrounds you / shedding light on the hard truths / but i know that i can’t lose / ’cause i know that i don’t need to see you to be you / i want to die before i die / want to say goodbye / to the mind i call mine / and when i wake from the dream / i will scream and sing / out the name / of the king / that i claim: / i’ll turn sorrows into pleasures /take all my trials / turn ‘em in to treasures / he who giveth is he who taketh / maketh and breaketh / never doth forsaketh i / i will keep my finger pointed at the sky / i will smile at things that once would make me cry / you bore me naked and that’s how i’m gonna

 














my subconscious

am i wrong for wanting / what i want from you? / i only see you in passing / when i’m passing through / but in my time there’s only been a few / who can make me feel as nervous as you do / am i wrong for dreaming / random dreams of you? / they screen your films on my eyelids / nights at twelve and two / but in my time there’s only been a few / who can kidnap my subconscious like you do

 














love is like a line

love is like a line and i walk it everyday / trying to stay the straight and narrow / shooting straight as an arrow / i flew across the sky just to be right by your side / on the 9th floor of a high rise / we were staring out at blue skies / it’s high time to forgive her / it’s high tide on hudson river / and i want to stand and deliver, and deliver / love is like a line and it’s slicing through my mind / reconciling all illusion / shining through clouds of confusion / what were we thinkin’ of / “falling in and out of love?” / when there can be no escaping / it’s for the sending and the taking / no reason to regret it / only hurts for as long as you let it / it’s right there so go out and get it / go out and get it! / love is like a line, and we’ll follow it in time / it will lead us to each other / and annihilate the other (“the other“) / wouldn’t you agree: i am you and you are me / if division is depicted / then the truth is contradicted / i know you can forgive me / and i know our love outlives me / in the hearts of all who hear me / love outlive me

 












self-rememberer

tonight i saw your face in the crowd / i wanted to scream out loud / i had to stop // and remember myself / the joy in my heart is so sincere / and though it’s been four long years / since you left to remember yourself / no one can take my love from me / erase the sky and drain the sea / no one can take my love from me / if we met like strangers on the street / i could fall at your feet / forgive and forget / and remember myself / now i see your face in the sun / i see you in everyone / and i stop // to remember myself / no one can take my love from me / i’ll give it all away for free / no one can take my love from me

 












liberty bell

mama had me in the suburbs / but i was born for the country / believe it it you want to / but i was born before you met me / and i’m not gonna die if you leave / i’ve been waking up at sunrise / trying to catch the morning after / floating up above it / my head’s up in the rafters / and i’m not gonna die if you leave / because i patched the crack in the liberty bell and rang it / wrote out a song to remember you by / and sang it once or twice / but now i’m done / now i’m done / papa raised us in the summer / but i was born for the winter / believe it if you want to / but i’m a lover and a sinner / and i’m not gonna die if you leave / you can pick up where you left off / if you release your resistance / believe it if you want to / we all get erased from existence / and i’m not gonna die if you leave / no i’m not gonna die if you leave / because i patched the crack in the liberty bell and rang it / wrote out a song to remember you by / and sang it once or twice / but now i’m done / now i’m done / now i’m

 
 
 












there will come a time

there will come a time / when i’ll be yours and you’ll be mine / we will be one / just like the sun / lights up the sky / we won’t have to wait / through countless years / that separate / we’ll be together in a moment out of time / say you’ll be mine / say you’ll be mine / say you’ll be mine / meet me in the pines / where deer and wolves dress to the nines / to catch a glimpse of all the love / that might have been and will in time / fear and hope can wait / there is no time to hesitate / just whisper softly to me “three times three is nine” / say you’ll be mine / say you’ll be mine / say you’ll be mine / praying for the death of all i know in every breath / i’ve gotta see you with an unconditioned eye / you’ll find me again in countless forms / your long lost friend / we’ll be together in a place far out of time / (step out of time) / say you’ll be mine / say you’ll be mine / say you’ll be mine
