    Mirror

    Every day seems like the same day
    With the same thought on my mind
    It never leaves me
    It's been with me since I was a child
    It taunts my brain
    It hunts me down
    Sometimes I feel so out of control
    It makes me insane
    It's like a ball and chain
    It owns my soul

    Mirror on the wall
    Is this the vision I recall
    Do I love myself at all
    Mirror on the wall

    Why do you hurt me, why do you stare
    Mirror everywhere
    I just want to see someone looking back at me
    Someone to love, someone to need
    Alone in shame, I'm obsessed but can't confess
    I've learned to keep it, keep it to myself
    Who would I ever tell, who could ever help
    Who'd understand this crazy person in the mirror

    Mirror on the wall
    Is this the vision I recall
    Do I love myself at all
    Mirror on the wall

    Tarnished

    What's happening to you
    I don't see your beauty anymore
    What's happening to you
    I don't see your innocence anymore

    You look tarnished
    You look tarnished
    Tarnished and worn

    What's happening to you
    I don't see your dignity anymore
    What's happening to you
    I don't see your compassion anymore

    You look tarnished
    You look tarnished
    Tarnished and worn

    Greed has worn your down
    Fear has taken hold
    No accountability
    All the selfish goals

    What's happening to you
    I don't see your desire anymore
    What's happening to you
    I don't see your wisdom anymore

    You look tarnished
    You look tarnished
    Tarnished and worn

    Higher

    I remember it like it was yesterday
    I still remember that wonderful feeling
    There was nothing I couldn’t do
    Like playing skip on a playground at school

    Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
    Higher than anybody else
    Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
    When I was a kid I believed in myself

    Did I stop living at 13
    Since then there’s always been something in the way
    I stopped touching life and I stopped giving
    When did I start feeling afraid

    Can’t do this can’t let myself do that
    When did life become so drab
    My false opinions run deep embedded in my skin
    I’m somewhere breathing underneath as that kid

    Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
    Higher than anybody else
    Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
    When I was a kid I believed in myself

    My habits hold me insecurity controls me I’m dying slowly
    Got to let go got to get out of my way

    Got to get back to that feeling I had
    Feel the hope like I did through the heart of a child
    Wake up each morning feel light all around
    Knowing I can do anything I want to that I set my mind to

    Reach up high to the sky, fly in heaven
    My paradise on earth
    My faith restored, my heart can soar
    I want to live now want to feel alive

    Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
    Higher than anybody else
    Jumping higher and higher, higher and higher
    Like when I was a kid

    Reaching higher and higher, higher and higher
    Higher than anybody else
    Reaching higher and higher, higher and higher
    When I was a kid - when I believed in
    Want to believe in … I got to believe in my self

    I Fell In Love With You

    La la la, la la la la la la la la la
    La la la, la la la la la la la la la

    Caught a breath of heaven today mesmerized by a glacial lake
    Pink water lilies opened up
    As if to say ‘welcome to a paradise’
    Blossoms between mountain majesty
    Sounds of nature blessed the air
    Fragrant water held my stare
    Under the sun shining down
    My heart skipped a beat

    And there you be teaching me by your loveliness and truth
    Today, I fell in love with you

    La la la, la la la la la la la la la

    How rare the blue moon to grace this August night
    When dusk gave way to darkness she cast her silvery light
    I hear I see I feel the wonder of this shrine
    The distant laughing of the loon
    Shadows dance to nature’s tune
    Hear the heart and spirit sing
    In blissful harmony

    And there you be teaching me by your loveliness and truth
    Today, I fell in love with you

    A love so sublime
    So radiant so divine
    All this splendor gently speaks
    Humble beauty waking me

    And there you be teaching me by your loveliness and truth
    Today, I fell in love with you
    Today I fell in love with you

    La la la, la la la la la la
    Fell in love with you

    How Could There Be No God?

    In a ray of light
    Cast down through the clouds in the sky
    I see floating images suspended high
    Ascending effortlessly radiance in white
    Slowly they disappear they've taken flight

    They're angels free to fly
    They have no human shape face or eyes
    Soaring higher and farther than you or
    I How could there be
    How could there be No God

    Take a good look around you
    See the splendid view
    Breathe the air around you
    Taste the early morning dew
    Hear the birds above you
    Listen to the sweet melodious tune
    Watch the dancing figures fade
    Beyond the blue

    Something's Calling Me

    It's greater than my fear
    Passion so pure
    A force from beyond
    Magnetic and strong
    It moves me along
    It calms me to sleep
    Wakens me with desire just to be
    I feel it at sunrise it sparkles in my eyes
    It inspires my dream

    Something's calling me
    Something's calling me
    And I'm following, following, following

    When I'm frightened by the dawn
    When I'm feeling withdrawn
    When my confidence fades
    When my courage wanes
    When I question what I want
    Something from afar
    Now rising up in my heart
    An intangible might a surge of light
    It conquers my doubt

    Something's calling me
    Something's calling me
    And I'm following, following, following

    From the salty ocean breeze
    From the sunlight through the leaves
    From majestic mountain peaks
    From the edges of the sea
    It calls to me

    Something's calling me
    Something's calling me
    And I'm following, following, following

    Spirits Dance

    You stepped out of my dream
    Heard my cry came to me
    As if my mind created you
    Words of wisdom from your heart
    Teaching me with honesty
    Your world is where I want to be
    Your sacred world is where I want to be

    Dancing free with the spirits
    Where hurt is washed away
    Each whisper heard is a freshened breeze
    Dance away in Eden's splendour
    Rejoicing in the glory off this shrine
    Where spirits play

    The dark had crept to deceive
    In disguise fooling me
    My wounded spirit left wary
    My guarded shell hiding me
    But in my eyes you could see
    My solitary soul crying
    My solitary soul still crying

    Dancing free with the spirits
    Where hurt is washed away
    Each whisper heard is a freshened breeze
    Dance away in Eden's splendour
    Rejoicing in the glory off this shrine
    Where spirits play

    Now Terpsichore sister muse
    We watch you dance we dance with you
    Your shining figure guides us gently
    This is not a dream this is reality
    And I can see us
    Dancing with you dancing free
    Dancing with you sister muse dancing free

    Dancing free with the spirits
    Where hurt is washed away
    Each whisper heard is a freshened breeze
    Dance away in Eden's splendour
    Rejoicing in the glory off this shrine
    Where spirits play

    Lonely Desire

    You're lost in sleep
    What do you see?
    You live in the past
    Your own reality
    The girl in your dreams
    The image you hold
    You still won't let it go
    It makes your spirit bleed

    You once loved years ago
    You shared a flame you thought would grow
    Her smile warmed your heart
    The mirror of your soul
    Then her good-bye
    Bitter surprise
    Now you bear a torch
    That holds the raging fire

    Lonely desire fire that grows
    A blazing torch that burns your soul

    Truth you deny
    Twisted memories in your mind
    Passion consumes you
    In lonely solitude
    Love passes you by
    Why can't you see?
    Your heart holds the key
    To free you from the fire

    Lonely desire fire that grows
    A blazing torch that burns your soul

    Dreaming heart rapt in gold
    Leap through the burning flames
    Salvage your soul

    Lonely desire fire that grows
    A blazing torch that burns your soul

    Sad Eyes

    Once you see them
    You never forget them
    Once they take hold of you
    They never let you go
    Traveling across the seas
    To a paradise
    Is where I first saw
    The sad, sad eyes

    So many children
    So much humiliation
    So many children
    So much quiet desperation
    So many children
    So many tears to fill their sad eyes

    Desperate souls fill the streets
    Hoping to find a dream
    Dare to look into the eyes
    And see their crying need
    So many sad eyes
    Fighting their way just to survive
    A fate they can't escape
    An innocent sacrifice

    So many children
    So much humiliation
    So many children
    So much quiet desperation
    So many children
    So many tears to fill their sad eyes

    I Miss Your Heart

    Please just keep a small place for me
    In your heart
    I miss your heart
    Perhaps one seed may grow
    You never know
    I miss your heart
    Are you listening to me?
    You're not saying anything

    Please keep me in your heart
    I miss your heart

    I see the clouds all around you
    Around your heart
    I miss your heart
    I see the rain in your eyes
    The falling rain
    I miss your heart
    Are you listening to me?
    You're not saying anything

    Please keep me in your heart
    Please keep me in your heart
    I miss your heart

    I Just Want To Feel It Once

    I just want to feel it once
    I want to know what it feels like
    By this time in life, I should know, I should know
    I've felt hope, I've felt infatuation
    Felt burning ache, felt Admiration
    I've even felt myself start to fall
    But I've never felt in love

    It's a hard thing to admit, It's hard to know the heart
    I've practiced at guarding emotions
    I've mastered the art
    I've felt desire, I've felt inspiration
    Felt burning passion, I've felt elation
    Each time I feel something but not enough
    Cause I've never felt in love

    It would be nice to write a love song
    It would be nice to compose it from the heart
    I can write the words that lovers say
    Want to feel what they mean
    I just want to feel it once
    I just want to feel in love one time

    I believe it will happen one day
    My heart will open up, want to give love away
    I want to feel naked, want to feel the caress
    Want to feel all my laughter, share tears of success
    I'm ready to melt, feel all the joy and the pain
    Oh I just want to feel it once

    Solitude

    I'm always searching for a quiet place to be
    Where voices may be many but they don't affect me
    Where spirits sing in a corner of a room
    By a window with a pocket of light shining through

    Solitude, solitude

    In the stillness I listen to my thoughts
    Open my mind breathe heaven's love
    wisdom in my heart brings me closer to home
    Free and strong one with God
    Radiance fills my soul

    Solitude

    Tranquility flows through me alone with beauty
    Here in this silence no sound intrudes
    I grow in the glory of my solitude

    I'm always searching for a quiet place to be
