Don't Fade

don't fade

you're too beautiful

too lovely to last for just a day

your light

is too beautiful

to drown out in the darkness of the day

life goes on and on and on and on and on and on

it seems so long

when no one's holding on to you

but know that you can hold on to me

don't fade

you're too beautiful

and winter will soon turn into spring


Suddenly Unexpectedly

on the day

the day that i made up my mind

not to stay

to leave the trouble in this world behind

the clouds rolled in

into an evening sky so light

and suddenly i remembered when i was alive

alive again looking into your eyes and then

suddenly unexpectedly again

summer dream

a song that drifts forever on the waves

still in dreams

you're in another place so far away


Saturday

like all good friends

we last forever

with good intentions

shining plans together

you give your heart

bring flowers daily

i show my darker side

hoping it will go away

saturday, saturday

not so long ago now

the sun behind the window

poured into the living room

o o o o o o it doesn't matter anyway

i'll keep it in my memory

that lovely saturday

beautiful girl

high enough to measure

hand full of bobby pins

holding her together

beautiful dream

sealed tight with hairspray

even the strongest wind

couldn't blow a single curl away


I Want to Start Something

i want to start something

i want to start something

i want to start something that feels like life

life is all around but i don't know why i can't find it

life is all around but i don't know why i can't find it

o people touching

hearts reaching

love and seasons

and feeling, feeling, feeling

i want to be somewhere

i want to be somewhere

i want to be somewhere that feels like home

been so many places i don't know why i can't find it

been so many places i don't know why i can't find it


Dreamland

the first night was the sweetest night

it held the hope of the unknown

the first night was the sweetest night

it held the hope of the unknown

the way you moved me was a crime

all night so dark and intertwined

when morning came we tried to climb

to the outer edge of dreamland

everybody loves a good surprise

as we slowly pulled away the big disguise

and stared into each other's eyes

and we didn't have to look away

the first night brought back memories

of heartache and possibility

the first night brought back memories

of heartache and possibility

the way you moved me was a sin

i played a game i could not win

still i tried so hard to enter in

to the outer edge of dreamland


Breathe

never have i seen a face with eyes so drawn to the sky

never have i seen a face with eyes so drawn to the sky

tell me that you'll stay here for a while

never have i seen a soul with wings so tied to the ground

never have i seen a soul with wings so tied to the ground

tell me that you'll try to stick around

and breathe

breathe breathe

breathe breathe

i'll stay if you stay i'll stay if you if you stay

when all of the green around us turns to ash

and all of the blue above us comes to pass

let the breath come light and clear as glass


The Outskirts of a Giant Town

in the hour when the light goes down

colors flashing all around

from your window looking down

the outskirts of a giant town

your roommate says we're a lot the same

we like to listen and we're drawn to change

i like to listen when you talk

when you laugh you set me off

i sleep easy in your arms

on the outskirts...

here's to when we meet again

here's to love may it always win

and to the wide world when you let it in

and to the spark where it all begins


Anywhere I Would Journey

anywhere i would journey

anywhere i would journey

for your love is golden wings

high above and everything

i don't care what your friends say

i don't care what your friends say

for your love is golden wings

all my hopes and everything

pay no mind to tomorrow

to yesterday or tomorrow

for your love is golden wings

all my hopes and everything


More Than Nothing

he reached out his hand,

reached out his hand, reached out his hand

and touch

then i realized there's much more than nothing

heart beating a new, beating a new, beating a new time

time to realize there's much more than nothing

ah world each day the same

ah world each day the same

ah world each day the same

nothing changed nothing changed nothing

now now i can feel

the moment is here

the moment is real

so real now i realize there's much more than nothing

tonight i'm living again

tonight i'm living again

tonight i'm giving in, giving in, giving in, giving


Summer's Over

when nighttime skies turn wild

blowing clouds across the moon

and the change comes on too soon

then you know summer's over

i walked along the sand

as the waves crashed down in time

the horizon's drastic line

i could tell

it was over

the days move slowly in july

with shadows cast upon the walls

a finger traces afternoon

then all too soon it's over

yeah it's over

i want this sound to stay

heavy in the air

but the molecules are moving

and i know summer's over


The Change

now i can only think about

the world you look out on

i read it in your letters and hear it in your song

life is ever changing

deep and wild like the sea

and love is ever changing too

no it's got a hold on me

baby can you feel

let the walls come tumbling down

i think you understand

the change is come

it used to be we'd walk along that old familiar way

find something to believe in by living day to day

life is ever changing

deep and wild like the sky

and love is ever changing too

i can see it in your eyes

when you see in a new way

colors reappear

when you love in a new way

everything is clear


For You

with all of the thoughts in my head it's impossible to sleep

so i lie here awake instead dreaming, dreaming, dreaming

of you

it took a long time for me to see

that you were bringing me everything that i need

all of the times we shared

they take on a new light

what was happy turns sad

in the picture of life

without you

it took a long time for me to see

that you were bringing me everything that i need

i was blind, darling forgive me i couldn't see

but now i'm on the outside

trying to get back to the inside

trying to get back to you
