Setting Sun 03:57
I’m looking for the one that’s with me The one that burns an eternal light A distant sun that’s deep within me A force too strong to ever fight A setting sun is not an ending A setting sun can be our light to get us right I’ve taken all that’s handed to me So much detail, so little insight A calling card for the end of our century A new rebirth to give new life A setting sun is not an ending A setting sun can be our light to get us right I know it’s hard to know When it’s time to go Feel it coming near Hear your heart beat clear A light will guide our way To the life we’ve paid All we’ve done today Will carry us away
2.
Heavy Moon 04:09
Is what you say all true The one you never knew Has come to take its share of what its given you A love of greed, a hate for truth Wise man you won’t be Too full of your own decree Is it the way that life has just passed you by Taken too much to see why I know you feel like going out for the one thing that you never knew So many others have been here looking for something or even a clue Is it you, heavy moon Under a heavy moon Another left too soon Nothing to help us fill what’s been left behind A man came down to a troubled mind To save a lonely soul Is not just anyone’s goal To look for good in all of thy hallowed eyes Look for love in love’s lie I know you feel like going out for the one thing that you never knew So many others have been here looking for something or even a clue Is it you, heavy moon Under your heavy moon Feel it coming through Clouds have filled all the blue skies grey Feel the light break day I know you feel like going out for the one thing that you never knew So many others have been here looking for something or even a clue Is it you, heavy moon

Take the heart of a fallen of man and a child and saint and a burning land Know the smell of fear and the fear that you bring You have come from far off lands to lay to claims to lives that you can’t understand To come and take all, but never to leave Must we wait for a brighter day when all our sins are washed away Must we wait for the fallen ones to be You with all of your diplomats and your guns and checks and forgotten debts You cannot be loved or ever feel peace I know I can’t feel his pain but I still can see what your money brings You build to destroy with your all new toys Must we wait for a brighter day when all our sins are washed away Must we wait for the fallen ones to be Can’t you see what this could mean That a time will come for thee A fist cannot keep what it can’t feel For I know you’ve had your fill Must we wait for a brighter day when all our sins are washed away Must we wait for the fallen ones to be

I did not know how to follow my soul Baby hold on tight Baby hold on tight I can’t believe all that I did not know Baby hold on tight Baby hold on tight Another man could make you happy But that would only leave you empty, my dear Another life would be so easy But that would only be to hurt me I did not know how to follow my soul Baby hold on tight Baby hold on tight I’ve been trying hard against unbelievable odds But then it’s got so hard to even try to hold on All I can do is fall into your arms Baby hold on tight Baby hold on tight Another man could make you happy But that would only leave you empty, my dear Another life would be so easy But that would only be to hurt me My dear, can we face the tears That have stained the years
5.
I can see what it is you gave me In my silent moment I can hear all that you have sent me In my silent moment To be one within you To be not without you To be as I once was I can feel the love that I was missing In my silent moment I can be all that I was wishing In my silent moment To be one within you To be not without you To be as I once was
6.
If I could see where all this would lead Who would I be and what would it mean Would I stay true and follow with you Would I be cruel and give nothing new Lord can you see the child that is within me Looking thru baby blue Teach me something The will to hold to nothing Keeping me free I’m wanting and needing to be me I could not keep all life’s doubts at bay Looking for now, but in yesterday Wanting to be the man that I see But staying the child that is within in me Lord can you see the child that is within me Looking thru baby blue Teach me something The will to hold to nothing Keeping me free I’m wanting and needing to be me

All the things you thought that you’d never be Not a sinner, not an enemy All the love that you had kept in your heart Was just a love that you had torn apart Is this what you want Can this be what you need You’ve lived your life so long You’ve lived your life in fear You sing in tune but you’re so out of touch Tell me, what is that you love so much Was it the way you shared with all of your soul Or the freedom of the love you stole Is this what you want Can this be what you need You’ve lived your life so long You’ve lived your life in fear I can hear your words as they pass me by I can hear your songs as they’re sung in time “To love’s to forgive Love the sinner, hate the sin” I can hear these words and make them mine Is this what you want Can this be what you need You’ve lived your life so long You’ve lived your life in fear
9.
I know the light of your eyes Part the clouds of my heart I hear the cry of our love Break a piece of our heart What was it that we had said That had the rivers flowing red My dear what can we say now What was it that we said You are not alone You’re not on your own So many ships to set sail In the sea of my mind I know you should’ve known nothing Of what’s in my mind My tears don’t see the future They just speak of the past One million ways to move on And one to move back You are not alone You’re not on your own
10.
I can see the light that has lightened our life And given cause for all of our selfish flaws Can I be the one who that I seek So pure of heart and love for everyone I hope you can see all the things that I see And hear what I can hear I hope this sound can help to bring us all near A million miles our souls have traveled the isles Searching for one sounding the sacred sound To hear it near can make a soul appear And help us hope when times are too hard to cope I hope you can see all the things that I see And hear what I can hear I hope this sound can help to bring us all near
