Track Name: Dreamstate
i’m hungry, i’m tired, i’m restless
and out of it
and lonely, and wired, just useless,
and sick of it
so i stand here, just standing just waiting
for something new
to come in, to enter, to happen
to burn me through

to feel it, to touch it, to taste it
is what i need
this feeling, some healing, or reeling
inside of me
defeat me, completely, release me
another place
no thinking, no thinking, no thinking, no
just some grace

all i want to do
is walk into this world with you
so tell me
tell me what you see
is there a heart inside of me?

to feel it, to touch it, to taste it
to keep her near
to see her, to know her, to face her
to hold so clear
the meaning, the meaning, the meaning
the meaning of
this one unique, complete
indescribable love

heaven
feel it deep inside
heaven
burning in our eyes

sundown
long day
wear your hair down
wear your hair that way
sad times
dissolving into bliss
heaven, in your kiss

sundown
long day
two hearts
flying away and away and away
sky dark
dream state
heaven
wide alive, wide awake

heaven
heaven
heaven wears your face
Track Name: In Danger
is she in danger of touching me
i want to change her
i want to see

what i am and what i need
and the words in my dream
what she says and what she sees
and the worlds in between

is she in danger of wanting me
she’s just a stranger
she’s haunting me

what i know and what i feel
and the things that won’t heal
i want to know
what it is and what she needs
and the things she might steal

oh i’m in danger

what she says and what she sees
and the song in my dream
what i am and what i need
and the worlds in between
what she is and what she knows
and all the things she won’t show

yes i’m in danger
don’t touch me
don’t touch her
love
please
touch me
Track Name: Dancing on the Moon
ask me why the sky's so strange today
ask me why the wind has blown away
ask me why the birds fly upside down
whenever you're around

ask me why the night is green and blue
ask me why my deepest dream came true
ask me why this summer came so soon
howling into June
howling at the moon

several times
i changed my mind
several lives i left behind
several things
i could never sing
but your eyes
those eyes…

ask me why the sky's so weird today
ask me why this feeling came to stay
ask me why i love you and i'll say

well it's such a rainy day
pouring down in June

and we're dancing on the moon
Track Name: Ring the Bells!
not a single word
not a single sound around
not a day goes by
where i can see the sky so high

so i push myself into the night
but i’m deaf and dumb and i can hardly see
i’m darkness pretending to be light
nobody makes a monkey out of me

i don’t have the time to sit around and whine
oh woe is me
i can hardly wait, i won’t hesitate
and i won’t ever sleep

‘cause her breathing’s like a symphony
i was deaf and dumb and blind but now i see
there’s something happening to me
i’m hearing bells, i’m hearing bells…

DING! DANG! DONG!
all night long
my baby’s ringing bells inside of me
DING! DANG! DONG!
sings the song
ring the bells! ring the bells! ring the bells!

dans la pluie, la nuit, la pluie de ma vie
dans la nuit, ci-git Paris
dans le temps que l’on prend
de plonger dans le vent
je plonge dans le sang de ma vie

well i’ll never speak such crap again
my monkey made a baby out of me
no i’ll never feel that way again
‘cause my baby made a monkey out of me
she really made a monkey out of me…

DING! DANG! DONG!
go my cells
she’s busy ringing bells inside of me
DING! DANG! DONG!
my heart yells
ring the bells! ring the bells! ring the bells!

DING! DANG! DONG!
all night long
all my cells ring like bells inside of me
DING! DANG! DONG!
sings the song
ring the bells! ring the bells! ring the bells!
Track Name: See Under: Love
here comes my baby, here comes my bride
here come the feelings i’m feeling inside
love and emotion so deep and so wide
here comes my baby, here comes my bride

here comes a new life, here comes a prize
here come the feelings once locked up inside
love and emotions come pour from my eyes
here comes my new life, here comes my bride

i can’t believe what’s been happening to me
see under: love
see under: V

love is a spaceship, love is a dream
love is a film clip, love is a screen
love is a mountain, of perilous height
love is a fountain that pours through the heart of the night

love is a painting, love is the wall
love’s hesitating out in the hall
love is a rocket, love is a kite
love is her face that shines through the heart of the night

i can’t believe what’s been happening to me
see under: love
see under: V…

love is no ceiling, love is no floor
love is a doorway without a door
love is a feeling so strange and so true
love is the music that plays deep in you

love is a garden, love is delight
love is the evening, love is the light
love is the darkness, sparkling and bright
love is the heart of the heart of the heart of the night
love is the heart of the heart of the heart of the night
love is the heart of the heart of the heart of the
light
Track Name: Summer's Here
what was that song, i’ve forgotten
you know the one by Johnny Rotten
in the park along the Hudson
river dark and sweet and sudden

it’s time
it’s here

another time, another story
a different life now stands before me
she
the feeling hurts inside my body
the feeling sings
she belongs to me

well it’s very clear
summertime is here

summer’s here and no denying it
close your eyes and move inside it
the night is rich and deep and swollen
the night’s alive and we have broken in

drop the words, drop all the meanings
drop your clothes into the evening light
the moonlight falls upon your body
and night dissolves into the dawn of time

well it’s very clear
love is finally here

what was that song I’ve forgotten
you know, the one by Johnny Rotten?
it’s half the time, twice the distance
between the lines of least resistance

half the time, twice the distance
between the lines…
Track Name: Fields of the Sun
out of the darkness
out in the night
though i have often been wrong
deep in my blindness
i saw this light
out of the emptiness there was a…
there came a…

song in my head
when i lay down to bed
trying to forget the day
i can't be clear what i started to hear
i always doubt things that way

a sound so beautiful
wild and beautiful
shaking and waking what i always knew
old things forgotten
they’ll soon turn rotten
but what is true is always true
and always new

but i felt alone
i was stuck on the phone
trying too hard to get through
just barely alive until
five forty-five
and that's what time i met you

that was the day i met you

so touch me my darling
drink from this darkness
dare you to not run away
flood me your lightning
flood me your tenderness
touch me and know me and
show me the day

and the way that i was
and the things that i feared
i was the man on the run
i can't be clear
what i'm even doing here

but i want to run on the fields of your sun
i want to run on your sun
baby let’s run on the sun
Track Name: The Marrow
for days and lives i did wander alone
‘neath broken skies and cold as stone
until the time when my poor heart lost its mind
to find the marrow of your bones

what would it be like not to ever have known
not seen that light so wild and pure and strong
i don't care, i don't ever want to know
i love the marrow of your bones

sailing, sailing, we’re sailing out to sea
sailing, sailing, on wings of mystery

come the hail, come the arrows and stones
i love you to the marrow of your bones

so here we are at last, under this canopy of love
free from all the past, flying high, flying fast above
hand in hand, along the narrow road to home
that leads to the marrow of the bone

yes i love the very marrow of your bones
Track Name: Viviane
said my heart
to the sky
to the wind
to her eye
viviane
be mine

olive trees
melodies
and the crease
in her knees
viviane
she’s my

strawberry sun

viviane
viviane
half human and half divine
half of water, half of wine
viviane
we’re drinking some
deep summer sun

let it flow
let it run
let it go
let it come
viviane
viviane

viviane
viviane
all at once and all the time
all human and all divine
viviane
she is mine

viviane
i thank the sun
she is mine
