Strangers 03:32
Can you see or feel it Because there’s really nothing left inside A memory of what we once were That’s faded and distorted all over time We used to be like brothers in arms Waging a war against time But now we’re just two strangers at night Lost within our own lives I thought I really new you But really I just couldn’t see past all the lies The love that we had once shared Was beaten by the words and the ego-eyes And now I can’t begin to reach you No matter how hard I can try You’re way too far gone for my words Beyond any reason of doubt Like a perfect stranger You had come into my life And like a perfect stranger You had left without a fight Oh, my,,, Can you see or feel it Because there’s really nothing left inside A memory of what we once were That’s faded and distorted all over time And now I can’t begin to reach you No matter how hard I can try You’re way too far gone for my words Beyond any reason of doubt Like a perfect stranger You had come into my life And like a perfect stranger You had left without a fight

I fell into it A twist of fate No one to guide me Through all the haze A shroud of mystery Some simple words Can have true meaning Can cure the hurt I hope that you feel the same too All that I have I can give to you You know that I’m not all of mind A heart really beats behind those eyes I had a vision I had a dream A house of plenty For you and me Oh, on a mountain By a stream In a garden Under a tree… I hope that you feel the same too All that I have I can give to you You know that I’m not all of mind A heart really beats behind those eyes I hope that you feel the same too All that I have I can give to you You know that I’m not all of mind A heart really beats behind those eyes

I know you won’t Say what you mean For fear of falling out Of favour with me A life of lies Leads you nowhere But to darkened halls And sinful stares So you must seek out What your are searching In all you do And when you find out What you are missing Then your light will shine on through Take care, beware Of all you do For in the end it all Will come on back to you A friend, a foe Do you even know There was a time you did But now it’s dead So you must seek out What your are searching In all you do And when you find out What you are missing Then your light will shine on through You must find peace in yourself Before loving someone else Do not sell this life so short There’s all this and more A lie is just a lies There’s nothing to deny If you feel like you’ve been wronged Don’t listen to this song

If not for yesterday’s girl If not for the love that hurt You wouldn’t see through all these days You wouldn’t see diamonds from dirt Any carry on You learned to move on too Because of yesterday’s girl You left a roof for the sea But for yesterday’s girl She didn’t have room thee She built a wall Too thick and tall to Smash them down and feel the sun Step out from the dark to greet everyone She was not who you had thought There is so much more that you’ve been taught A note to yesterday’s girl Written in words of heat “You’ve no sense of hurt Until you’ve lived like me I’ve built these walls Too thick and tall to” Smash them down and feel the sun Step out from the dark to greet everyone She was not who you had thought There is so much more that you’ve been taught She built a wall Too thick and tall to Smash them down and feel the sun Step out from the dark to greet everyone She was not who you had thought There is so much more that you’ve been taught

Savage Soul 04:31
I can hear so much in your cries And I can see so much in your big brown eyes The lives you’ve left, to never return All the loves you lost and the loves that you yearned As you gaze upon a savage soul A broken spirit Please remember that we once were young And had our secrets At loss for words, you’ve so much to say Of all the things you’ve seen in your younger days So new to us, but as old as the sun Your light shines through it all My sweet little one As you gaze upon a savage soul A broken spirit Please remember that we once were young And had our secrets Believe that our love is so precious No need to be afraid If we just say what we are feeling Our love will guide our way
