Be
1st Verse
I've got a liner in my pocket,
I've got a sugar for my tea
I'll never ask my lord for nothing,
He's not already giving me
I built myself this situation,
For reasons being what they be
I'll never look into the mirror
Just to see what I can see

Chorus
I know I came from nowhere
So blind I could not see
I'll try to have your pleasures
Your wantings - let it be

2nd Verse
I taught myself this situation
I gave my mind a chance to breathe
I never needed conversation
Until you smiled and spoke to me
My liberation comes from thinking
The way it should or should not be
I'll always cover all our senses,
Our salvations our degrees

Repeat Chorus
I never thought I'd have the chance
To be with one and still be me

Repeat 1st Verse and Chorus

The Way
1st Verse
There's a picture on the wall
That tells a story known to all
The sound within your voice
Your song you sing by choice
Reading Tales upon the page
Your life's a story told with age
1st Bridge
Looking for a way to
Walk on through the door
Searching for a way to grow
Learning what you can
Within the hours of time
Never knowing what to know
Chorus
Let me lead you through
Your darkest hour
Let me help you on your way
Let me show you what your
Love has yet to know
Let me show you...
Let me guide you through
The stars above
Let me gaze upon your smile
Let me show you what your
Heart has yet to know
Let me show you the way -
Let me show you the way
2nd Verse
Through my nights
I wait for all our days
Fantasies are just a dream away
Just for the Love of Life
The way you hold my
Heart at night
You take me by the hand
And guide me on my way
You guide me on my way...
Chorus
Let me lead you through
Your darkest hour
Let me help you on your way
Let me show you what your
Love has yet to know
Let me show you,
Let me guide you through
The stars above
Let me gaze upon your smile
Let me show you what your
Heart has yet to know
Let me show you
Let me lead you through
Your darkest hour
Let me help you on your way
Let me show you what your
Heart has yet to know
Let me show you the way
Let me show you the way
Let me show you the way
Let me show you the way

No Words (Instrumental )

Stone By Stone
1st Verse
I remember mountains
Drifting cross the sky
I remember places that
I had to climb so high
I remember peoples faces
Fade in memory
I can't feel my life,
But I see it all around me
Standing in your presence,
Ghosts of dawn look on
Wondering how I'd leave you such a
Long, long way from home

Chorus
Stone by Stone... Walls come down
Stone by Stone the chamber spins
Round and round and round
Stone by Stone

2nd Verse
Riding in the sun...
The road ahead divides
Going back to that place
Where time and place collide

3rd Verse
I remember fables
Reconstructed from view
Your face will fade in memory
Of who I thought was you

Repeat Chorus twice ending on
Stone by Stone
Stone by Stone
Stone by Stone

I'm The One
1st Verse
Living in a world you've never even met
Trying to remember
All the things you can't forget
The things you wanted different,
Always stay the same
Though it all seemed so one sided,
It's never been that way
I'm the one who wants you

2nd Verse
Believing in a time,
Leaving back the rest
Now your growing older faster,
The years you could not catch
The Heart that sounds like thunder,
Pounding out your name
There's so much I'd like to tell you,
But there's nothing more to say

Chorus
I'm the one who wants you
I'm the one who haunts you
I'm the one- who could never let you be
I'm the one who wants you
I'm the one who haunts you
Even though the door is open
Can I come in please
Can I come in please
Please...

Bridge
Every lock, must have a key
What's to come, what to believe
Open your eyes, it's just a dream
It's just a dream yea
Dream...

3rd Verse
Living in a world you've never even met
Trying to remember all the things
You can't forget
The things you wanted different
Always seem the same
There's so much I'd like to tell you,
But there's nothing more to say

I'm the one who wants you
I'm the one who haunts you
I'm the one, who could never let you be
I'm the one who wants you
I'm the one who haunts you
Even though the door is open
Can I come in please
I'm the one who wants you
I'm the one who haunts you
Even though the door is open
Can I come in please
Can I come in please...
Yeah

Medicine Dog
Intro
I went for a walk
With my heart on my sleeve
I went to find ya
But you weren't home
What am I gonna do yea...

1st Verse
Looking for our shadow- We were...
We were looking for the rain
Are you the dreamer, or are you,
Are you the dreamed
Sometimes I could just fade away

2nd Verse
Looking for our future- We were
We were trying to catch it up
Are you the Boomerang- or are you
Are you coming home,
Sometimes I just don't know

1st Bridge
If I'm hungry, throw me a bone
If I'm cold, give me some warm

Chorus
Speak to me of magic
With you I will come soon
Let me be your Medicine Dog
I can jump the moon

3rd Verse
Looking for our future
We were...
We were trying to catch it up
You hunted to kill,
You broke down my will
For the fear...
For the fear of loving you

2nd Bridge
If I'm hungry, throw me a bone
If I'm cold, give me some warm

Chorus
Speak to me of magic
With you I will come soon
Let me be your Medicine Dog
I can jump the moon
Let me be your Medicine Dog
I can jump the moon
I can jump the moon
I can jump the moon
I can jump the moon
I can jump the moon

Show Me How
1st Verse
Seems to me as though you've been
Unlocking all the doors
You walk the path that no one travels
Only makes me want you more
When the light shines
Through the darkness
Get your body, do your mind
The rush is better than you dreamed
Cold fire...
Burns you right

Chorus
Here and there and, in-between
Just like you to, see through me
Just like you to, make me wise
Show me how to take the ride

2nd Verse
Seems to me I've heard the end
Could always justify the means
Fast as lightning you play chance
In and out of time... Take me
When the light shines
Through the darkness
Get your body, do your mind
The rush is better than you dreamed
Fly high to the clear blue sky

Chorus
Here and there and in between
Just like you to see through me
Just like you to make me wise
Show me how to take the ride
Here and there and in between
Just like you to see through me
Just like you to make me wise
Show me how to take the ride
Take the ride, Take...
Here and there and in-between
Just like you to see through me
Just like you to make me wise
Show me how

Child In Your Eyes
1st Verse
New Moon on the mist of the sunrise
I can see so clearly now
Your words, they all come back to me
Growing from an open sky
So many times I've wondered
So many dark nights... In my dreams

1st Bridge
When the wicked wind tried to take me
I lost my Heart, lost all control
When my shattered mind
Tried to wake me
My dreams committed treason
Lost there reason
To love, To be or to live

2nd Verse
New Moon on the mist of the sunrise
I can see so clearly now
Your words...
They all come back to me
When the wicked wind tried to take me
I lost my Heart, Lost all control
When my shattered mind
Tried to wake me
My dreams committed treason...
Lost their reason

Chorus
New Sun on the mist of the morning
I can surely see the light
Your radiance comes back to haunt me
Is it all illusions in my mind
New Sun on the mist of the morning
Better still to lay than lie
Every way that you move
Right through me
I can see the child... see the child
In your eyes

Repeat Chorus twice ending on
In your eyes

Another Place, Another Time (Instrumental)
