Southern Star


Hallelujah


Lovers
Part beneath the sheets
Silence
Never was so sweet

That was our shelter fair
We lived without a care
We embraced the night
Heaven within sight

Oh

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Rain down on me

Winter

Her close against my chest
Her soft hair
The rhythm of her breath

The softness of her skin
The passion deep within
A fire from a spark
Desire left its mark

Well

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Rain down on me

A sunlit field
Where we used to meet
And lay beside each other
In a golden dream

We heard a song of love
It came down from above
And in the summer rain
We heard the sweet refrain

Of

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Shine down on me

 
Voices
 
I walk outside
Hear a voice
I’m always thinking of you
I’m only thinking of you
 
I close my eyes
There’s no noise
I’m always dreaming of you
I’m only dreaming of you
 
Your touch brings a memory
Wind on a raging sea
Love moves away from me
Again
 
I wait inside
The lights are low
Always visions of you
Only visions of you
 
Take my hand
Lead me home
Always trusting in you
Only trusting in you
 
Your touch brings a memory
Wind on a raging sea
Love moves away from me
Again
 
The stars won’t shine
Heaven’s closed
I’m always praying for you
I’ll always pray for you

 
 
Hard Hearted Heartbreak
  

You try so hard to leave my love laying on the floor again
You’re heart’s so hard tears fall and dry up on the surface
Every time you move you hide the light I need to see
Every time I think I lost myself you’re right there beside me
 
Hard hearted heartbreak
Soft smooth gentle sway
Hot heated love make
Cold sweating dreams
 
I try so hard to bring some love up into the air again
The grounds so soft tears disappear and they’re never seen again
Every time I move she shines the light I need to see
Every time she’s lost I reach out and pull her close to me
 
Hard hearted heartbreak
Soft smooth gentle sway
Hot heated love make
Cold sweating dreams
 


Out of Luck
 
The sun goes down and the moon comes up
She tries to fill his empty cup
The sky is bruised the water turns rough
 
She looks into his eyes and says I do
He lifts her veil and the light shines through
He lets go of her hand a little too soon
 
And they walk away
And the seasons change
And the blue skies turn grey
 
He sits in bars most nights and days
She sits alone at home and prays
She’s left to sort through the last remains
 
You’ve been waiting here
For so many years
Two more bottles full of tears
 
And they hold on
Until they run out of luck
 
She wakes up in a darkened room
Hears his voice and tries to move
He holds on to her hand and the light shines through
 
And she drifts away
And the seasons change
And the light will not fade
 
And they hold on
Until they run out of luck
 
 

Traces of You
 

Staring at you from the night
Inside a single bulb burns bright
There’s no need to feel ashamed
Let me in out of the rain
 
Empty frames line the wall
Fading footsteps in the hall
Mirrors turned to face away
A stranger standing in your place
 
Places we find ourselves
Traces of someone else
Faces we’ve left behind
They’re so hard to see
Stranded in time
 
Pull the blinds down close the light
Darkness brings us second sight
Let the evening settle down
Breathing is the only sound
 
Words and actions will reside
Stars will fade and worlds collide
Sand will creep under the doors
Dreams will wash up on the shores
 
Places we find ourselves
Traces of someone else
Faces we left behind
There so hard to keep
Lost in time
 
Places we find ourselves
Traces of someone else
Faces we left behind
There so hard to see
They all fade in time
 

 
Better Days
 
You drew a picture for me in the sand
I wrote your name on the palm of my hand
You sent a wish out on the wind
I opened up and let you in
 
I gave you warmth I made the fire
You brought me love all I desired
I gave you peace I gave you calm
You gave me will you made me strong
 
The sun is shining on a new horizon
The wind has taken all our cares away
With world behind us and the light inside us
We can see our way to better days
 
You never let me get caught in the storm
I always kept you from all harm
You never let my mind get clouded
I tried to keep your heart from doubting
 
I held you up when you started to fall
You stayed beside me right through it all
I wouldn’t let them pull you down
You kept me standing on solid ground
 
The sun is shining on a new horizon
The wind has taken all our cares away
With world behind us and the light inside us
We can see our way to better days
 
I came for you when you were stranded
You gave me water from your hand and
I was your shelter from the storm
You were the only one who kept me warm
 
The sun is shining on a new horizon
The wind has taken all our cares away
With world behind us and the light inside us
We can see our way to better days
 
 

Time to Heal
 
Its another long summer day
I watch those storm clouds drifting away
Its another long summer night
With the windows and the shutters all drawn up tight and I
Try to feel my way through the darkness
It’s so unreal you’re touch brings sparks and
 
Wind is blowing the wheat on the fields
Thunder in the distance and the sound of wheels
Coming up the drive and the lightning flash
Looking though the curtains catch the curve of your back as you
Bend and kneel and fill your pockets
It’s still unreal how you can stop the rain
And ease my pain
 
It’s time to heal
It’s time to feel again
It’s time to let these eyes see the sun
Let it all out till the crying’s done and then
It’s time to heal again
 
Fire in the distance and the smoke in our eyes
Cinder and ash in a cellophane sky
Water from the well and the sweat on your face
Air growing heavy lick your lips and taste
Salt and steel shine in the moonlight
It’s so unreal how you can bring the rain
And take away my pain
 
It’s time to heal
It’s time to feel again
It’s time to let these eyes see the sun
Let it all out till the crying’s done and then
It’s time to heal again
 
It’s been thirty years of wind and rain and sun
It’s been thirty seasons since we’ve begun
 
Our time to heal
Our time to feel again
It’s time to let these eyes see the sun
Let it all out till the crying’s done and then
It’s time to heal again
 
It’s another long summer day
I watch those storm clouds drifting away
 
 
 
Falling for Grace
 
Out in the freezing rain
Out on the barren plains 
Alone in the silence of night
In all this ruin and chaos
Approaching end of days
In this holy cross light
 
I reach out to you now
Longing to feel a warm hand
I stay close to the flame
Something has moved in the night
There’s nothing to fear in the night
 
Taken by hurricanes
Washed free of sad remains
Lust and desire reside
Renewed by incantations
Released by revelations
Confessions fade into white
 
I reach out for you now
Feeling for tracks in the sand
I search unsettled ground
For something I lost in the night
Something has faded from sight
Hoping and yearning never once turning away
 
I almost fell
My soul was burning
A miracle brought me to life
I almost fell
I was lifted by spirits
To where beauty and love will unite
Beauty and love will unite
 
Starlight will guide the way
When only dust remains
When all have fallen from heights
Departing sorrowed days
The tired cold and maimed
No longer hidden from sight
 
I reach up to you now
Seeking forgiveness and warmth
The sun has broken the clouds
Something I sought in the night
Has brought me back into the light
Free of this yearning my hope is returning to faith
 
I almost fell
My soul was burning
A miracle brought me to life
I almost fell
I was lifted by spirits
To where beauty and love will unite
Beauty and love will unite
 
Out in the freeing rain
A moment to regain
The wisdom of second sight
Behind us smoking embers
Nothing will be remembered
At Heavens gates we arrive
 
 
New In Town
 
Took a car and a train and a jet plane
Played a part broke a heart took a new name
Now I’m trying to fit inside a new frame
 
Took some hope from the note that you wrote me
Had a vision or a sign or a daydream
I could feel you pulling on my heartstrings
 
New in town, everybody sees the shoes I’m wearing
New in town, everybody sees my shine I swear it
It's a mystery how I came to be
Just another part of your scenery
 
Dropped a dime trying to find a selection
You know I wouldn’t mind some affection
Now I’m staying and I’m praying for direction
 
Felt the call of a song from the window
Wish I knew which way the wind would blow
I want you to be the one to have and hold
 
New in town everybody hears the blues I’m playing
New in town everybody reads my sign I swear it
It's a mystery how I came to be
Just another part of your scenery
 
Felt the calm of a warm summer evening
By the ocean under starlight dreaming
Tried to guess all the things you’ve been feeling
 
Felt so cold sell my soul for some sunshine 
Now I’m walking and I’m talking such a fine line
For the second or the third or the fourth time
 
New in town everybody sees the cross I’m bearing
New in town everybody reads my sign I swear it
It's a mystery how I came to be
Just another part of your scenery
 
New in town everybody sees my shine I swear it
 
 
Make it Last
 
Wind is growing strong pushing something our way
Hearts are strung along sensibilities swayed
 
We both know there’s mountains between us
and thorns lain over our paths
We’ve both seen the storm clouds coming
And felt the wind pushing us back
 
Sounds of evening fade and we’re left to our thoughts
Palm trees slowly sway inhibition is lost
How I wish I could feel you beside me
Cause you’re sweeter than God’s own honey
 
Even though the moon has decided baby
The best of our times have past
Even though the stars have misguided us baby
Let’s make it last
 
The tide is coming in stars on the water play
A natural midnight swim remember the love we’ve made
 
We both know what happens in the moonlight
Is best left to shadows and ghosts
Let’s give in to this one moment in time
We have never been this close
  
Hearts are strung along
Played out in a song
Always ending in goodbye
Feelings growing strong
This is where we belong
Lets have the time of our lives
 
Even though the moon has decided baby
The best of our times have past
Even though the stars have misguided us baby
Let’s make it last




 
 








 

Second Sight


Lorelei 

I've been waiting for so long trying to get a message to you
I've been trying on shades of  red I've been trying shades of blue
I've been bringing you flowers I've been bringing you strawberry rain
I've been holding onto lightning I've been sleeping in a bed of flames
 
Lorelei you get me high you lift me up to the clear blue sky
All my dreams go rushing by Lorelei you're my paradise
 
I've been waiting for so long (so long) to hear a whisper in my ear
I want you to turn me on (turn me on) I've got something you should hear
I've been sending you starlight I've been writing your name in the sky
I've been feeding you sweet sensations every day and all through the night
 
Lorelei you get me high you lift me up to the clear blue sky
All my dreams go rushing by Lorelei you're my paradise
 
Lorelei you're a lover twice you're laying me out I can't think right
Lorelei you're a secret spice you're a mystery hidden in the night
 
Time and time is dragging on and time and time and you're long gone
The sign the sign I read was wrong and fine is fine our time is done
 
Lorelei you get me high you lift me up to the clear blue sky
All my dreams go rushing by Lorelei you're my paradise
 
 
Forever
 
I never want to be alone
I never want to see you go
I don’t want to spend all night trying
Morning comes feel like I’m dying
Everyday I wonder why
You move further away the harder I try
I thought we were so strong
What did I do to make it wrong
 
We could be one
We could be together
We could be three times a charm
We could be forever
 
Through the smoke you catch my eye
You send me whispers in the night
You mark me up with your designs
Your face forever in my mind
I make a stand and then I fall
I kneel down and then I crawl
You take my hand when I am tired
Hold me now lift me higher
 
We could be one
We could be together
We could be three times a charm
We could be forever
 
I was wrong you were right
On a silent night I will hold you tight
Your love can take me over to the other side
 
Could you be the one
Could we be together
Could we be three times a charm
Could we be forever
 
We could be one
We could be together
We could be three times a charm
We could be forever
 
 
 
Beautiful Day
 
Walk by the water wait for the moon to pull you
Into a sweet dream where our love will flow and
I've been seeing you in a different place with a different face
But that's alright

Something crossed my mind could have been a sign
Baby I don't mind

Cause it's a beautiful day
Sha na na na na
 
Walk by my garden and let the sunlight pull you
Over to my side where wildflowers grow and
I've been seeing you in a different light shining in the night
And it's alright

Something in my mind could have been a sign
And I'm feeling fine

It's a beautiful day
Sha na na na na
 
Stand by the waterfall and let the mist pull you
Over my garden wall where our love will grow and
I've been seeing you in another time in another rhyme
But that's alright

Somewhere we can find another state of mind
Where we can shine

And it's a beautiful day
Sha na na na na
 

The Great Divide (Falling Back in Love)
 
We’ve had enough of all those
Tired and worn out troubles
All our dreams left in the dust
Lets say goodbye to all those
Dark grey clouds and let the
Morning sun shine down on us
 
We've been through the heat
We've been through the rain
Down that road and back again
Can we find the strength and give it one more try
 
Lets step out of the shadows
Light a few more candles
Lets try to bring back the trust
We’ll say hello how are you
You know I really missed you
And your warm gentle touch
 
We can take a chance we can heal the pain
We can let some light back in again
We can hold each other for one more night
 
No more lies no sad goodbyes
Hurtful words and lonely nights
If we both let go of our foolish pride
If our hearts are true honey me and you
We can make it through the great divide
 
With your hand resting in mine
There's nothing left to decide
I’ve got that feeling back again
When I'm holding onto you
The feelings can come shining through
You’ve got a lover and a friend
 
We can take the heat we can take the cold
Get warm as tears or cold as stone
We can sail away under a star filled sky
 
No more lies no sad goodbyes
Hurtful words and lonely nights
If we both let go of our foolish pride
If our hearts are true honey me and you
We can make it through the great divide
 

 
Feel Your Grace
 
It seems like the hand of fate has lead me to your door
I've walked for a thousand miles don't want to walk any more
Whatever I've left behind is fading away to white
I want to
 
Hold you
Touch you
Feel your grace 
 
Sitting beside myself watching shadows cross the floor
I've waited so many years no need to wait any more
Whenever I feel you near I forget about all the years
I could not
 
Hold you
Touch you
Feel your grace 
 
Whenever the circle is closed and the colours start to run
Whoever I want to have close feels warmer than the sun
 
To

Hold you
Touch you
See you
Feel you
Whatever I
Wherever I
Whenever I want you

I
 
Take away all the years
It feels like I have you here
And I can
 
Hold you
Touch you
Feel your grace
 
Whenever I feel you near
The loneliness disappears
And I can
 
Hold you
Touch you
Feel your grace
 

Oh Heart 

Heart heart oh tired heart
How long until the rapture starts
Can I rest upon the sands of time
Can I leave these worries far behind
 
Come near come near and tell me dear
How long will I walk this path of tears
Its hard to follow eyes closed in fear
And the light is fading with the years
 
Be still be still my precious girl
There's magic left in this wicked world
You'll find a spell to mend your heart
Heal the wounds and hide the scars
Yes heal your wounds and hide your scars
 
Time oh time oh endless time
Mark me up with your jagged lines
Numb the pain of memories
Leave me here to rest in peace
Yes leave me here to rest in peace
 
 
 
(You Are) The Reason
 
I felt a draft at the end of my bed
Opened my eyes and raised my head
A silver light played in the air
Landed on the arm of your old chair
 
I breathed in slow and steady and deep
You are a memory I know I shouldn’t keep
But the pictures are stuck, they won’t move
No matter how hard I shake in this room
 
You are the reason
I can’t run away
I can’t pray
I’m always alone
You are the reason I'll never be home
 
The blue the black the green and red
Your halo hanging from a thread
The shadows from your downcast eyes
The temple you've let crumble inside
 
These ruins lie so heavy and deep
Feelings buried so far out of reach
Treasures stolen one by one
And left to fade in the heat of the sun
 
You are the reason
I can’t run away
I can’t pray
I’m always alone
You are the reason I'll never be home
 
I want to talk but stop and stare
Reach out and there’s nothing there

To hold

I feel your warm breath on my skin
I feel you moving deep within
 
I smell the smoke under the door
Feel the heat crackling on the floor
Taste the sweat on my face
I’m bound up and tied in place
 
You are the reason
I can't find my way
I’m always afraid
I’m lost on my own
You’re the reason
I’ve turned to stone
 
 
Don’t Look Back
 
Don’t look back everything's behind you
Take your time things will change
I was lost now I’ve found you
The past is gone love remains
 
Laughing when you should have been crying
Smiling even though you’ve been sighing
Caught you lying even though you’ve smiling, smiling
 
It’s a cool sweet wind blowing you my way
The stars above will guide your way
A path of gold for you to follow
The moon above to light your way
 
Laughing when you should have been crying
Smiling even though you’ve been sighing
Caught you lying even though you’ve smiling, smiling
 
 
  
Just Say No
 
When I whisper in your ear
When I put my hand in yours
When I try to pull you near
Just like I did before
 
If I tell you little lies
If I say I’ll be forever yours
If I ask you to be mine
Baby just say no
 
When I wait outside your door
When I ask you to stay with me
When I want you to give more
And I keep telling you my love is free
 
When I come over late at night
And our clothes are lying on the floor
When your lips are close to mine
Baby just say no
 
I know that I’ve broken promises and vows
I’ve been so far away can you hear me now
 
When the loneliness runs deep
And you're longing for my touch again
When light of day fades away
And the night is closing in
 
When I bring you close to me
And my hands are moving soft and slow
When I say you'll be forever mine
And you tell me you don’t know
 
If I say give your heart to me
Baby just say no

Third Beach


Some Crazy Wind

 
Bathed in light
Carried by waves
Follow the stars
The good lord saves
Fashion a craft
Trust in the sea
Some crazy wind
Will blow you to me
 
Slow in returning
By sail or by steam
Lessons we’re learning
Which help us to speed
A course has been charted
Landfall is seen
Some crazy wind
Will blow you to me
 
Some crazy wind
Filled your sails and blew you to me
Some crazy wind
Filled your sails and blew you to me
 

My Blue Sky
 
I have seen all those pretty faces
I have heard all those pretty lies
I have lost at the races
I have flown up on high
 
And I say hey
My blue sky
And I say hey
My blue sky
 
I like it when you wear that white dress
I like the way it hangs on your thighs
I like to watch you dance in the moonlight
And when the sun is shining in your pretty eyes
 
And I say hey
My blue sky
And I say hey
My blue sky
 
Lola makes a rum punch
She calls it the old one two
I think maybe I’ll have three or four
And spend some time sitting right here talking to you

And I say hey
My blue sky
And I say hey
My blue sky
 
 
Everything is Alright
 
I want to hear your voice I want to feel your breath
On the back of my neck as I undo your dress
And the sun goes down
And the world turns round
Its alright baby I’ll always be here with you
 
I want to hear you softly calling out my name
Through an open window in the summer rain
And the thunder sounds
And the rain comes down
It's alright baby I'll always be here for you
 
Love comes in waves
Lives we have made
Feelings won't fade
These moments we save
 
I want to see you walking on a sandy beach
Your dress moving slowly in a gentle breeze
And your hair is down
And your skin is brown
It’s alright baby I'll always be here with you
 
Time rolls along
Feelings grow strong
Our hearts can't be wrong
We're where we belong
 
I want to chase you down and sweep you off your feet
Pull you close and whisper soft and sweet
As the sun goes down
In this beachfront town
It’s alright baby I’ll always stay here with you
Tonight baby all of my love is for you
 
 
Long While
 
I can listen to the sound of a warm tropical rain
Watch the sunset linger on and dream of being with you again
I could pull in from a distant shore or walk that long hard mile
Yes I know it’s been a long while
 
There's a fire in the distance keeping you safe and warm
Near a beach hut with a porch light on a shelter from the storm
As I drift into your deepest thoughts you close your eyes and smile
Yes I know it’s been a long while
 
A circle of memories brings me round again
Sometimes the slightest touch can help the time to mend
I'll take you by the hand
You’ll turn to me and smile
Yes I know it’s been a long while
 
Everything is quiet now the evening sky is clear
After a life of constant searching I finally have you near
We can let go of the lines we’ve tied and drift into the night
Yes I know it’s been a long while
 
 
Senoritas y Cervezas
 
Rosa girl in a party dress
Rosa girl your hairs a mess
Muchachos spin you round and round
Rosa girl gonna paint this town
 
El Mocambos open all night long
Compadres come and dance along
Tequila in a paper cup
Come in and soak it up
 
Senoritas y cervezas
Lying under the mesa
Oh, my aching cabeza
Honey, won’t you take me home
 
Sister Mary smiles and taps her foot
Holds up the table with her little black book
Flora de Cana con limon
C’mon people and sing along
 
Take off your hats and stay awhile
All it takes is a little smile
Kick the sand right out of your shoes
You’ve got nothing to lose
 
And they’re singing
And they’re dancing
Everybody’s romancing
Sun is shining keep on smiling
And let go
 
On the beach under a golden moon
So sad you have to leave so soon
I’ll remember this night for days
Let’s put a smile on that pretty face
 
Silver gold and tequila shine
Hear the music flow like wine
Everybody has such a good time
And it all tastes better with lime
Yes it all tastes better with lime
 
Senoritas y cervezas
Lying under the mesa
Oh, my aching cabeza
Honey, won’t you take me home
Lord I don’t want to go home
 
 
Driftwood Cross

 
Behind the sand dunes out beyond the pier
You’ll hear a quiet voice if you get near
The crackle of the static from an old C.B.
A hurricane lantern swaying in the ocean breeze
 
His hut was made of old abandoned longboards
Sand and shells spread all over the floor
A picture of a tanned young girl hanging on the door
A letter sealed with a kiss sometime before the war
 
Firelight starlight drifts on by
Moonlight tonight when you close your eyes
 
A light in the distance to set your bearings by
A star in the heavens on a warm and cloudless night
On a lone hilltop you can find the love he lost
Beneath the sand and a driftwood cross
 
Some nights it’s the rhythm of the sea
The wind blowing softly through the trees
Rain falling heavy on an old tin roof
The fading sound of laughter from a smoke filled room
 
To find his beach you walk out at the ebb of the tide
When the sea is quiet and the moon is high
 
A light in the distance to set your bearings by
A star in the heavens on a warm and cloudless night
On a lone hilltop you can find the love he lost
Beneath the sand and a driftwood cross
 
There’s a shadow that he talks to now and then
Voices in the trees he calls friends
A mist on the shoreline floats across the sand
The spirit of a girl walks by and slips right through his hands
The warm wind whispers in his ear and he’s back with her again
 
Sometimes you gain in blessings what you bargain for with loss
Take a moment bow your head for those you have lost
 
A light in the distance to set your bearings by
A star in the heavens on a warm and cloudless night
On a lone hilltop you can find the love he lost
Covered in flowers and Spanish moss
Beneath the sand and a driftwood cross
 
 
King of Arizona

Darling I confess
I hide my loneliness
Though I don’t harbour you ill will
You reside inside me still
 
You cloud my mind and eyes
With dreams of paradise
I don’t think I will survive
Another silent night
 
I’ll lie down with you
Tonight
I’ll lie down with you
 
I’m the king of Arizona
I will dry your tears tonight
I’ll lay you down in a bed of flowers
That bloom in the night
Bloom in the night
 
Softly sighs the breeze
Your name among the leaves
As the day destroys the night
The heat begins to rise
 
A fire beneath the ash
A calm that could not last
The sands cannot disguise
The shape of loves demise
 
I’ll lie down with you
Tonight
I’ll lie down with you
 
I’m the king of Arizona
I will dry your tears tonight
I’ll lay you down in a bed of flowers
That bloom in the night
Bloom in the night
 
  
Sail Away

 
I've been thinking about you lately
I even wrote your name in the sand
The tide is in the sun is up
Coffee’s cooling in my cup
It's time for me to leave dry land
 
The wind is coming up from the southwest
I'll loose the outhaul on the downwind run
The sails are flying as they should
When I'm on a course made good
I can see my landfall and the golden sand
 
Sail away
Off to some forgotten bay
Where the water’s calm the sand is warm
A peaceful shelter from the storm
Maybe I’ll just sail away
 
Remember that cold Christmas in New England
We watched the moonlight shining through the trees
We slept under a bed of down
Snowflakes falling all around
I kept you warm until we had to leave
 
Sail away
Off to some forgotten bay
Where the water’s calm the sand is warm
A peaceful shelter from the storm
Maybe I’ll just sail away
 
Now we stow our gear and set out on the ocean
Dive into the crystal blue sea
Our bodies moving with the waves
Drifting like the plans we made
Out on the water’s where we were meant to be
 
Sail away
Maybe off to some forgotten bay
Where the water’s clear the sand is warm
A peaceful shelter from our storms
You and I can sail away


Maria
 
Girl when we were younger
We’d spend all our summers
Swimming in the ocean and lying in the sand
 
How I miss those gentle days
Your loving smile your warm embrace
I would give up anything to go back where we began
 
Oh Maria how I’d like to see you
Sitting on the grass outside my door
Oh Maria how I long to see you
And kiss your smiling face again once more
 
I was blind I know it
Far too young to show it
Always making little earthquakes starting little wars
 
You were never angry
Always standing right beside me
Fighting off the spells and curses I brought to our door
 
Oh Maria how I’d like to see you
Sitting in the sun outside my door
Oh Maria how I want to feel you
Lying in my arms again once more
 
You know I want you near me in the morning when it’s cold outside
Feel your gentle breath upon my skin so soft and warm
Our love is never ending because you keep on sending
Me love that will not fade anymore
 
You reached across the water
Said you had a daughter
Who liked to swim out in the sea as we did before
 
I wish I could regain your hand
Take you from that foreign land
Walk with you across the sand
Down to the golden shore
 
Oh Maria how I’d like to see you
Walking up the stairs to my front door
Oh Maria you know how much I need you
Come back and let me hold you close once more

 
These Old Stars
 
Lovers stay a while then they pass
Photos fade beneath the glass
All our firsts never last
They’ve gone away
 
You wish you could erase the past
Hide behind a youthful mask
Time moves too slow then too fast
And flies away
 
If these old stars would line up perfectly
I’d find a way to let myself be free
If these old stars would shine eternally
I’d find a way to where I’m meant to be

Feelings lift you up then pull you down
Memories of sights and sounds
More are lost than are found
They fade away
 
You startle at the slightest sound
Your heart and mind so tightly wound
You’ve come undone yet still feel bound
To drift away
 
If these old stars would line up perfectly
I’d find a way to where I'm meant to be
If these old stars would shine eternally
I’d find a way to let myself be free

If these old stars would line up perfectly
I’d find a way to where I’m meant to be
If these old stars would shine eternally
I’d find a way to give in gracefully
