Track Name: Memories of Tomorrow
Memories of Tomorrow
=================

Remember the walks we would take
Down by the lake
The flowers we planted in spring
The lemonade that we made
To cool off the summer
Sitting there on the porch swing

Remember the walks we would take
Down by the lake
Picnics and skipping stones
The laughter we made
You went into the water
And I walked home all alone

[chorus]
Your first day of school
You Halloween ghoul
The photos we took are there in your scrapbook
The nightmares and dreams
Shade the world as it seems
And all the fun of the days that would follow
Memories of Tomorrow

Remember the walks we would take
Down by the lake
Picnics and skipping stones
The laughter we made
You went into the water
And I walked home all alone

It’s not easy to walk all alone
With your heart void of sorrow

A story of woe
Creativity flows
As I search for the proper emotion to borrow
In my nightmares and dreams
I rehearse deadly themes
As I brace for the questions to certainly follow
Memories of Tomorrow

[instrumental solo]

All I have now are dried flowers we grew
And all of those Memories of Tomorrow

On the six o'clock screen
Like a Hollywood scene
Like a weapon I brandish my sorrow
As our nightmares and dreams
Bathe the world in our screams
Casting a pall over all of the days that would follow
Memories of Tomorrow

Memories of Tomorrow
Track Name: Far Away
LYRICS
======

Every day lately
I see you smiling
But every day's gray
When you're gone
Love's in the way
When I try to find you
It's so easy to say
When alone
And you seem far away

A kiss was so pleasing
Early this morning
It changes the season
To sun
Whatever the reason
I've never stopped soaring
And I'll never be leaving
As one

For far away.
You've taken me
Oh far away
And if I had the choice today
I'd still choose Duality
And rather be
With you
So far away

All of my time
Is spent trying to tell you
All that these rhymes
Can't convey
The place isn't mine
You say to surround you
Still I can't find the line
That will say
Don't be too far away

You try to believe
There's something about this
That will not deceive
Open hearts
I've tried to relieve
All of your doubts with
A soft touch and ease
But there are scars

From far away.
You've taken me
Oh far away
And if I had the choice today
I'd still choose Duality
And rather be
With you
So far away

Far away.
You've taken me
Oh far away
And if I had the choice today
I'd still choose Duality
And rather be
With you
So far away
Track Name: Unforgotten
Lyrics
=====

Merriment and Mistletoe
Some of us got called home
And I'm right there with you
-- I'll never forget you

The chime of tiny silver bells
The sights, the sounds, the smells
Cinnamon scent and candle glow
-- I'll never forget you

Unforgotten friends shall live forever
In our memories
Holidays, every day and always
In our memories

Angels adorn the trees
Covered with lights and seasonal delights
Homemade cakes and handmade gifts
-- I'll never forget you

Family gathered 'round the tree
To celebrate the season in Love's glow
Where did all the seasons go?
-- I'll never forget you

Unforgotten friends shall live forever
In our memories
Holidays, every day and always
In our memories

[instrumental. Musical quotes from "Jingle Bells", "Carol of the Bells", "We Three Kings"]

And it's sometimes hard to take what has happened
It must be the gift of caring that preserves the memories

Unforgotten friends shall live forever
Unforgotten friends --
Unforgotten friends shall live forever
In our memories
(I remember you)

[instrumental outro. Musical quotes from "Carol of the Bells", "We Three Kings"]
Track Name: Blood Moon
BLOOD MOON
============

There's a light in the sky
And through the oaken leaves and Spanish moss it shines
And you and I
Once again keep our date with the constellations

On a highway to nowhere
Through a tunnel of oak
A bitter sweet reunion
A past life, a lost soul lingers within me still

And here I stand beneath the Blood Moon
As I have for twenty years
Trembling with the expectation
That I'll find you here.

And I can see you
Pulling the mist like a cloak about you
And I can feel you
As cold as never caring

Do you bring darkness down on me
Or is it just the night?
Will you escape my tender touch
As we relive our dance tonight?

The breath of life escaping
Through my fingers slipping
May the the Earth embrace you
Where I left you 'neath the Blood Moon long ago.

And here I stand beneath the Blood Moon
As I have for twenty years
Trembling with the expectation
That I'll find you here,
Where I left you 'neath the Blood Moon long ago.
Track Name: It's Written In The Stars
Mr. Weatherman of Fate
Will you please forecast my future?
All things must come to pass
And there's nothing I can do, sir
I wish to tell you everything you've ever said's come true
So every morning I rely on you

[chorus]
It's written in the stars
And published in the paper
And each turn of the cards
Reveals another caper
And I'm hanging on each word you have to say
I can't wait to see what I will do today!

Dictating my destiny
Is a dangerous game to play
But if I follow your advice
My life could change today
You're a prophet! I believe my life is in your hands
A star to guide me through the shifting sands

[chorus]
It's written in the stars
And published in the paper
And each turn of the cards
Reveals another caper
And I'm hanging on each word you have to say
I can't wait to see what I will do today!

[bridge]
And when family and community are
Feeling kind of claustrophobic, my
Getaway is thwarted by some
Reasons mostly economic, I'll
Count on you to see me through, you
Told me this was gonna happen, there's
No place to hide, so enjoy the ride
No matter how life tries to step on you...

[chorus]
It's written in the stars
And published in the paper
In a Chinese restaurant --
A message from the baker, it says
"If you believe in Love, then Love will follow you", and I say...
I can't wait to see what I will do!

[chorus]
It's written in the stars
And published in the paper
And the lines upon my palms
Evaporate like vapor, and there's
Only so much Time that God has given you, and I say...
I can't wait to see what I will do!
Track Name: Dr Lindyke (short version)
Old Dr. Lindyke blesses his scalpel
As he peels up an apple
And puts it away.
Saving the peeling he looks at the ceiling,
He keeps all he can for a cold rainy day.

The insipid old doctor gathers his patients,
All tired and waiting
And too underpaid
Urgent indeed and beginning to bleed,
He shudders the thought and sends them to pray.

Dear Dr. Lindyke approaches the olive
Which he finds hard to swallow
On his long coffee break.
After soaking his hands in another man's wallet
He looks to the window for something to say.

Oh Dr. Lindyke is this your story
Malpractice and glory and gory details?
Yes, Dr. Lindyke only you have the courage;
So what's there to worry if the aging hand fails?

Appointments and ointments grieve Dr. Lindyke
As he sits up at midnight
And dreams of the dead.
All of the graves through the years he has made
Walk up the staircase and out of his head.

Old Dr. Lindyke carries a strange knife,
Laughs at an odd laugh
By the light of the moon
He seems to be caring but nonetheless daring
To operate blindly with the blade of a spoon.

He now washes rose from an old table cloth
After surgery lost all
The prestige he once had
He scrubs up a last time to clean up some cheap wine
Which isn't as sweet now the doctor's gone mad.
Track Name: The Reckoning
This room has been so cold for so long
And the growing shadows tell me of the time
There is a fear and a love here so very strong
Telling me that I do and do not belong

And with all of the arbitrary
Indecision
And incisions
Over years by
Countless barbers
I've been made to bleed
And though the pain and the
Scars have been
Quite severe, it's the
Judgment and the
Reckoning that I need

[chorus]
So let’s move along now
You barristers and dames
I recognize your faces
But remember not your names
Some got the education and some got the brains
Some carry the keys while others just pull the chains

[instrumental break]

Until my presence here has been replaced with my absence
There’ll be no high pressure measures and even less to tell
And as long as symptoms are passed along as evidence
I’ll go on believing rumors that the treatments are going well

[repeat chorus twice]
Track Name: The God of All Small Boys
A dreary Autumn's day
Just west of the sea
Beside the Law and Tay
You will find me

A shelter from the storm
Some corrugated iron
A bit of chimney pipe
A paint pot filled with fire
Will keep me warm...
Will keep me warm...

And The God of All Small Boys
is looking down
is looking down
The God Of All Small Boys
is looking down
is looking down
On me...

Listen, you can hear
Echoes of a war
Our fathers shed their blood
There is nothing more
That we hold dear...
That we hold dear...

And The God of All Small Boys
is looking down
is looking down
The God Of All Small Boys
is looking down
is looking down
On me...
On me...

The God of All Small Boys
is looking down
is looking down
The God Of All Small Boys
is looking down
is looking down
On me...
On me...
On me...
On me...

Track Name: Rainbows
RAINBOWS
wmh - 27 Oct 2009
==============

Rainbows don’t last forever
Yet they seem to have no end
They’re a blessing and a promise
That the rain may come again
But the future holds no destinies
And kites don’t fly themselves
In the blue sky...
The blue sky...
So high...............

There’s a tale of 2 cities
And I think the story’s true
There are dreams within your reach
Far above and beyond the blue
And though there’s beauty in a rainbow
There's not enough to fill the sky
The blue sky...
The blue sky...
So high...............

And while you can’t catch a rainbow
You can enjoy the view
Choose an ending for your story
Your future’s up to you
I think you can fly...
In the blue sky...
So high.............
