To see it in you is to see it in me Like a snake in the grass waiting patiently To keep on this life or to check the dial Tied up in my head with my heart in a knot Too many moments lingering to be forgot Throw away the pity and hold that thought It’s time to move on Yeah it’s time to stand up Take the love that I’ve made Give it all to you Give it all to you Yeah it’s time to move on Yeah it’s time to move on To see it in you is to see it in me Like a snake in the grass waiting patiently To keep on this life or to check the dial Yeah it’s time to move on

Jade Lights 04:39
Dusk falls on the city Knee high boots march on Slush filled with old habits Lies built for King Kong Pull me through the jade lights Tell me how far gone you are, you are I can’t keep trying to forget it But tonight I don’t want to be alone And I can’t keep fighting to admit it That tonight I just don’t want to be alone Sidewalks jammed like freeways Blonde hair gray from fog Laughter bites the chilled air Empty of a song Meet me through the jade lights Show me how far gone we are, we are I can’t keep trying to forget it But tonight I don’t want to be alone And I can’t keep fighting to admit it That tonight I just don’t want to be alone Take it down Lovers and mourners Take it down From pain to pain comes a big smile again Free Come searching for me Feel something so right Come searching for me Feel something so right Come searching for me Feel something so right Come searching for me Feel something so right Feel something so right Feel something so right Feel something so right Feel something so right I can’t keep trying to forget it But tonight I don’t want to be alone Feel something so right And I can’t keep fighting to admit it That tonight I just don’t want to be alone Feel something so right I can’t keep trying to forget it But tonight I don’t want to be alone Feel something so right And I can’t keep fighting to admit it That tonight I just don’t want to be alone

Stained Glass Saint Look down on me Hold my head Inside you’ll see that… Timeless, the moments that we face Someone was right here in this place The world will turn and has before Here will somebody stand once more Sun shines through The reds and blues Share your light Help me feel right that… Timeless, the moments that we face Someone was right here in this place The world will turn and has before Here will somebody stand once more Timeless, the moments that we face Someone was right here in this place The world will turn and has before Here will somebody stand once more Here will somebody stand once more Here will somebody stand once more

Keep it up Been moving down the right path No time to take a look back You got to do it in your own way Keep it up Stronger than a locomotive With the situation loaded You got a step ahead the next one Running to a place where nobody can find me Move into a place where you let the whole world see So keep it, keep it, keep it moving forward Fantasy is real when you’re writing your own words Keep it up Flying higher than a jet plane To you it’s all the same Ride it out a little more now Keep it up Almost made it to the summit Above it all you feel it coming A little bit of satisfaction Running to a place where nobody can find me Move into a place where you let the whole world see So keep it, keep it, keep it moving forward Fantasy is real when you’re writing your own words

Hope Fades 03:34
When I feel the premonition The wind dances with the leaves Left the fire out burning Under the northern stars Never knowing what it looks like It takes on another form Is it miles and miles away now Or in my own backyard And I lay awake hope fades hope fades And I lay awake And I lay awake hope fades hope fades And I lay awake Staring out the screen window Waiting for a shadow move Through the records and the woodpile Surrounded by the band Leave the porch light on And the curtains half drawn Then I have the premonition Before everything is gone And I lay awake hope fades hope fades And I lay awake And I lay awake hope fades hope fades And I lay awake And I lay awake hope fades hope fades And I lay awake And I lay awake hope fades hope fades And I lay awake And I lay awake hope fades hope fades And I lay awake And I lay awake hope fades hope fades And I lay awake Then I have the premonition Before everything is gone

Stumbling around to see Feeling trouble bound It wasn’t me Out of my head I’ll say anything But the answer The answer Running from what it seems Tunnel full of mud And speedy dreams Out of my head I’ll say anything But the answer The answer Missing some way to care I know there is a time I should be there Lost without a trace of all Your love Your love Your love Your love Your love Out of my head I’ll say

Hiding 03:03
For Your soul Tell me What for We all Love you Where did You go With those Whom we Don’t know Please stop hiding With those whom we don’t know If you can’t be seen then Please don’t be seen And stay Please stop hiding With those whom we don’t know If you can’t be seen then Please don’t be seen And stay With me

There comes a time When the light Can’t be seen without the smoke And the night Wouldn’t dance If the morning never broke Tell that some farewell Lift it off yourself On the tail Of the rain Lives a spirit wild and free In her wake Radiance Leaves a conscience less heavy Tell that some farewell Lift it off yourself Falling down There’s an answer right through it Falling down There’s an answer right through it Falling down There’s an answer right through it Falling down There’s an answer right through it Tell that some farewell Tell that some farewell Tell that some farewell Lift it off yourself Farewell Bye now
