Alchemy 

Alchemy

Stay on the path, so you've been told

They say in time your led will be gold

Starving the heart and feeding the soul

But your destination is not worth the toll

The sky ahead is covered with haze

And the road before you twists like a maze

And so now, where do you go from here?

Where do you go from here?

 

As you look back, back in time

Remember the places you stalled at the line

Feeling so daunted by choices you made

Feeling so haunted by roles that you played

The past is always clear as day

While the future remains so far away

And so now, where do you go from here?

Where do you go from here?

 

 

Another Love

Time alone is a time for change, broken hearted or feeling strange

Where's the love that's meant for me? Where's a love that I know is free?

Gone away, take heed and know it's not today.

Greet the day and the day is cold, buy your time and you pay with gold

Dreaming hard and I dream of you, waking up but I know it's true

You've gone away, I take heed and know it's not today

Another love has passed you by, or did you put it off again?

Saw a chance and you had to try, for something more and then

Never knowing what's inside, was it just pretend?

Cause now it's time to say goodbye, I guess we've reached the end

I guess we've reached the end

 

Lost in time, the shadows grow, force myself to let you go

Choose the path that's right for you, "I'll see you round" and you know I do

But it's ok, take heed and know its not today

A chance of love is all you need, to make you glow or make you bleed

A lonely heart will have you feel, that every love you find is real

But it's ok, take heed and know it's not today

Another love has passed you by, or did you put it off again?

Saw a chance and you had to try, for something more and then

Never knowing what's inside, was it just pretend?

Cause now it's time to say goodbye, I guess we've reached the end

I guess we've reached the end

 

 

The Waiting Song

A front comes rolling through again,

feel the cold in you begin, edging to the bone

A sudden rush of loneliness, feel that something is amiss,

remember you're alone.

So much effort has gone un-offered, just trying to make a start,

Then you realise that you're vulnerable again, crippled by the heart.

I'm waiting, I'm waiting, waiting for my day

Waiting, yeah I'm waiting, in so many ways I watch the time away

Just watch the time away

 

Out of hand and out of mind, as the caution left behind,

haunts you with intent

I know that something's coming, and wait for you to walk in,

with open arms and heaven sent

On a limb and by a thread, ever softly do I tread,

making waves with no return

I guess that's a way of living, guess that's a way of giving,

you put it out or let it burn.

Well I'm waiting, I'm waiting, waiting for my day

Waiting, yeah I'm waiting, in so many ways I watch the time away

Just watch the time away

 

 

Moving On

You know I won't be sorry for anything

Never will be sorry for myself

You know I won't be sorry for anything

Cause I'm busy moving on

Sometimes the best laid plans

Melt like a snowflake in fire

Leaving a hole inside a man that slowly is filled with desire

You climb but you never get higher

 

You know I won't be sorry for anything

Never will be sorry for myself

You know I won't be sorry for anything

I never worry cause I'm busy moving on

She comes in the dark of night when you might mistake her for dreams

Carefully filling your heart with light, you know that she says what she means. You hope that it is how it seems

 

I said that I don’t care if your god is on my side

Cause I've never learnt to fear and I'm not afraid to die

I'd give it all away and start it all again

Like just another day was coming to an end

I'd give it all away and start it all again

And I wouldn't blink an eye when I reach the end

 

 

Reflections

As I stare at the sky and wait for the answers to come

Then remember I walk on a planet that orbits a sun

Just a tear drop in a rainfall, just a grain of sand on a desert plain

I've been here before, and I'll be here again

I know that you fear your world will come to an end

But I'd leave here today and have no regrets to defend

How can you say that you've given up wondering "why?"

From the smallest child to the strongest man we all die

And what we see is reflected from a million years ago

You think its real but its all a trick of the light

 

You're struggling now, try to make sense of it all

Watching the walls around you tumble and fall

But the sun will set and the moon will rise, see a million stars in a crystal sky

And darkness will shelter your mind

How many souls have walked on the earth to this day?

And how many times have lovers been felling this way?

So how can you say you've given up wondering "why?"

From the smallest child to the strongest man we all die

And what we see is reflected from a million years ago

You think its real but it's all a trick of the light

 

 

Chasing A Shadow

Like chasing a shadow I see from afar,

I walk in your footsteps to know who you are

Looking for something that I'll never find,

and piecing together your life in my mind

 

I walk the streets of your old hometown,

take in the sights and take in the sounds

I'm thirty years late but you're still everywhere,

I reach out for you but I'm just grabbing air

Picture and stories, all I remember, faded by time, so long ago

All those questions I wish I could ask you, all those answers I'll never know

 

When I was younger, I didn't need you, life was easy, times were good

Now I'm older, wish I was wiser, wish you'd taught me all that you could

Maybe I'm stronger, maybe I'm colder, either way I'm still on the run

Made my own way without a father, gave my best at being your son

 

All life comes and goes, all hearts overflow

Miss you now more than then, wish I knew you as a friend

 

When I out on a limb and I need you around,

when I'm taking a fall or losing my ground

I know that you're here, helping me through,

but there's nowhere to turn when I'm turning to you

 

Like chasing a shadow I see from afar,

I walk in your footsteps to know who you are

Looking for something that I'll never find,

and piecing together your life in my mind

All life comes and goes, all hearts overflow

I miss you now more than then, wish I knew you as a friend

 

 

Missing You

Creep out of bed, try not to wake you from your sleep

Turn to kiss you on the forehead feel your breath upon my cheek

Sunlight hits the window, rise to see the eastern glow

So long to the winter, good riddance to the snow

I'm so happy waking up beside

Don’t want to face the day that I decide to

Pack up my things and travel on

To be going back where I came from

 

Walking in the evening, through the park and back again

Crawling out your window watching shooting stars at two am

Drinking wine and being fools, sit there howling at the moon

Telling jokes and playing tunes, sleeping in 'til afternoon

All the winter you kept me warm

But as the spring comes I'm feeling torn in two

Cause when the flowers start to bloom

I know that I'll be leaving soon

And missing you

 

But I'm so happy waking up beside you

Don’t want to face the day that I decide to

Pack up my things and travel on

To be going back where I belong

I'm gonna miss you I'm going home

I'm gonna miss you when I'm waking up alone

I gave it all, you know its true

And I've never even said I love you

 

 

New Moon

Once you were free, now you're bound to a dream

Once you would roam, now you're chained to a stone

But like a love on the run the new moon comes

Like a love on the run the new moon comes

The new moon comes

 

Dark is the time, that the moon doesn't shine

Dark are the days that your fears come and play

But like a love on the run the new moon comes

Like a love on the run the new moon comes

The new moon comes

 

You can feel it, she will heal it, wash your blues away

Always better when you let her, help you through the days

Bringing good times and you could find, when the evening comes

That her light is almost as bright and nearly as warm as the sun

 

Oh when the new moon comes

When the new moon comes
