LYRICS

So High

1. the power of love

the moon came up slow over first avenue

and hung like a wish in the sky

it's the same old sky

but i see it in a brand new way

that's the power of love


looking at you there's alot to remember

and i want to remember everything

it's a brand new face

and i think i'm gonna like it fine

that's the power of love


i like the things you're saying

and i like the things you're doing

and i like the way you make me feel

come on baby don't let me down


what can you tell from a few conversations

when words can be taken in so many ways

but i like your words

every single word you're saying

that's the power of love

1a. La force de l'amour

La lune monte lentement sur la first avenue

Comme un souhait suspendu dans le ciel

C'est le même ciel noir

Mais je le vois sous un nouveau jour

C'est la force de l'amour


Tu me rappelles trop de bons souvenirs

Je les sens quand tu n'es pas ici

Ton nouveau visage

C'est un miroir très très doux

C'est la force de l'amour


J'aime les choses que tu dis

J'aime les choses que tu fais

J'aime les choses que tu me fais ressentir

Oh ne me laisse pas tomber


Que peut-on dire(attendre) de quelques conversations

Quand les mots peuvent tant de choses

Mais j'aime tes mots

Chaque mot doux que tu dis

C'est la force de l'amour

2. down so low

please don't talk about him

i'm trying to forget

although i've thought about him

for a long long time

days turn into years

years into a time

the time that i remember

when our love was young and kind


the kind of love he gives

that comes and goes

it comes and goes

it broke me down

until my heart

was down so low


the steeple on the skyline

is lit up red tonight

this frozen february

for the city's valentines


the kind of love he gives

that comes and goes

it comes and goes

it broke me down

until my heart

was down so low


it comes and goes

it broke me down

until my heart

was down so low

3. since you've been away

alot of things have happened

since you've been away

summer turned to autumn

it got cold today

the trees along the highway

are turning red and gold

i made alot of money

with some paintings that i sold


i'm going down to mexico

a couple of friends and me

to the silver cities

for a change of scenery

in our last conversation

sorry i sounded down

it's just that ugly jealousy

i get when you're not around


in our last conversation

sorry i sounded down

it's just that ugly jealousy

i get when you're not around


alot of things have happened

since you've been away

4. So High

If it's got a beat

It's the city

If it's got wide open space

It's the sea

And I won't look back


I got a whole lot of words

Words of love

Spinning around in my mind


If it's got a beat

It's love

If it's love

Let it be free


I got a whole lot of

Unspoken things

I'll show you in time

When you take my hand

Pull me down into the night I feel

So high

4a. Si haut

Si c'est un rythme c'est la ville

Si c'est grand ouvert c'est la mer

Je ferai face

J'ai tellement de mots de mots d'amour

Qui me tourbillonnent dans la tête



Si c'est un rythme c'est l'amour

Si c'est l'amour libère le

Je ferai face .


J'ai tellement de mots mots d'amour

Qui me tourbillonnent dans la tête

J'ai tant de choses non dites

Que je te montrerai en temps voulu



Si c'est un rythme c'est l'amour

Si c'est l'amour libère le

Je ferai face


J'ai tellement de mots mots d'amour

Qui me tourbillonnent dans la tête

J'ai tant de choses non dites

Que je te montrerai en temps voulu

Quand tu me prends la main

Engloutis-moi dans la nuit je me sens

Si haut

5. the invitation

just like light decides color

and the tone of the day

you decide

how you want to ride

with me


my invitation is open

my will is free when i say

you decide

how you want to ride

with me


two days of rain from the window of a train

listen listen

everybody's moving but for those who just stand still

oh listen listen listen


the moon makes the mood

and pulls on the tide

you decide

how you want to ride

with me you decide

how you want to ride

you decide

how you want to ride

you decide

how you want to ride

6. we will be together

they say that time will heal

but time takes so long

and timing is the key

to every love's success

just like an old man casts his line across the water

and waits as diamonds fade upon the darkened waves


i watch the saddest season change

from my side of the river

i know that nothing stays the same

and we will be together


now all around the trees turn green to brown to bare

across the smoke stacks hangs a sorrow in the air

and as the night turns cold above the brooklyn bridge

i make one wish and cast it from the river's edge


chorus

7. Got to have you

Is it wrong to hide the secret

Of a heart inside a song?

You got your life all set up

tied up tight and I know it's wrong


but I want you

and I need you

and I've got to tell you I've

got to have you


time is funny whey you're young

there's so much

it just goes on and on

when you're older you wake up one day

to find the finest times are gone


I don't want to

Live a sad life without you

And I've got to tell you I've

Got to have you


Maybe I'm just dreaming and imagining

This thing inside my mind

But when you're close to me I get a feeling

That I looked so long to find


And I want you

8. through leaves june 2001

through leaves i see a body

through leaves i see a soul

i reach out for you to hold you again

through leaves


through darkness i see a meaning

through darkness i see the end

all stories get old

so let's leave ours untold

through darkness


don't worry you are here

don't worry you are here

i remember how you feel

9. end of august

summer days and nights are long

along the path that leads to the sea i walk alone


these are days when hearts must learn

how to love and lose and start again

and know it's not the end


in my long life

there will always be you


a stone between the earth and sky

the last rose of summer

you are there and everywhere up high

10. Look Down

silver skies are turning black again

tv's light the windows across the way

and your voice is ringing in my ears

why'd you go so far away this time my dear


remember look down...


I'd like to follow to the place you've gone off to

'cause I know your eyes can see from where you are

and your mind is bright again and free

you can see all of these candles burning


remember look down...


you're a photograph, a memory

a dream a dream a dream don't wake me

I know you said one day you'd fly

with no regrets and no goodbye


red red blood is the color that I hold on to

keeping what we feel is real alive

later on when the precious moments fly

I'll remember the light once shining in your eyes

11. Blue forever mine

When the world is heavy

I remember blue

When the thoughts are heavy

I remember blue


Ocean, wind and waves and sky

Yesterday not far away

Blue forever mine


Wind in the trees

You know the answer

Rain on the leaves

You know the answer
