Bury My Lovely

Cover the mirror, hide in your dreams
Forget what they told you, forget what it means
A picture worth a thousand lies, the memory and the mirror
Nothing but what came before, nothing but a closing door
A picture worth a thousand lies,
a thousand words,
a thousand eyes

Bury my lovely, hide in your room
Bury my lovely, forget me soon, forget me
Forget me now, forget me not

Cover the madness, cover the fear
No one will ever know you were here
A figure in the hallway light, returning like a ghost
Something that was left behind, something in a child's mind
A picture worth a thousand lies,
a thousand words,
a thousand eyes

Bury my lovely, hide in your room
Bury my lovely, forget me soon, forget me
Forget me now, forget me not
Bury my lovely,
bury the lies,
bury me under a thousand goodbyes

A shadow from another time
is waiting in the night
Something happened long ago,
something that will not let go

Bury my lovely, hide in your room
Bury my lovely, forget me soon, forget me
Forget me now,
forget me
Not


Ariel

 

My name is Ariel
And I want to be free
It is your sorrow
That has made a slave of me
Forgive me
Forgive me
But you are all I know
Forgive me for leaving

The day is breaking now
It's time to go away
I'm so afraid to leave
But more afraid to stay
Forgive me
For leaving
The sadness in your eyes
Forgive me

Let the wind and ocean water
Wash across your hands
Wash away a thousand footsteps
Wash us all away
Like sand

The sky has fallen
Now the earth is dry and torn
I know you're tired
From the violence of the storm
I love you
I love you
But you are all I know
Forgive me

Let the wind and ocean water
Wash across your hands
Wash away a thousand footsteps
Wash us all away

Let the wind and ocean water
Wash across your hands
Wash away a thousand memories
Wash us all away
Like sand

My name is Ariel


Where you are


Floating in the summer sunshine
We are flying
We are blue
Falling like a summer raindrop
Like a teardrop
Like the dew

Nothing but a blue horizon
All around us like a glove
Feeling it go on forever
Far below us
Far above

Where you are
Do you know I think of you
Where you are
Do you know
I hope you do

Shining like a summer rainbow
We are colors
We are bright
Vanishing into the sunshine
Like a river made of light

Floating on a summer memory
I can see you in my mind
Knowing it goes on forever
Far beyond us
Far behind

Where you are
Do you know I think of you
Where you are
Do you know
I hope you do

Falling in a summer daydream
I remember what I knew
Nothing that I can't hold on to
Or return to
Even you

Where you are
Do you know I think of you
Where you are
Do you know
I hope you do


A lonely voice


I keep looking back
A lifetime back
Across the desert
In a desert where no one can explain
You tell me God is dancing in the rain

I can hear the echo
In a maze of words
A lonely voice behind a door
Can you hear me calling
From a world away
A lonely voice behind a door

I keep looking back
Traditions back
Across the centuries
In a century where no one can explain
You tell me God is dancing in the rain

I can hear the echo
In a maze of words
A lonely voice behind a door
Can you hear me calling
From a world away
A lonely voice behind a door

As I stare ahead
A dream ahead
Across an ocean
Cross an ocean where there's nothing to explain
You tell me God is laughing in the rain

I can hear the echo
In a maze of words
A lonely voice behind a door
Can you hear me calling
From a world away
A lonely voice behind a door




Eyes of Mercy


Hush, close your eyes
And I'll keep you safe
Allow you to weep
And sing you to sleep

Don't be afraid
Remember I'm here
The noise in the street
Will soon disappear

When the soft face of mercy
Is lost behind a veil
I will stay with eyes open
Stay here with eyes open
To watch over you
And take away the sadness and the fear

Hide in my arms
And dream golden dreams
Forgetting the world
Of men and machines

When the soft eyes of mercy
Are blinded by the dark
I will stay with eyes open
Stay here with eyes open
To watch over you
And take away the sadness and the fear
I'll be here

I'll Be Here


Return to me

You rise like a wave in the ocean
And you fall gently back to the sea
Now I want to know how to hold you
Return to me
Return to me

Y ou shine like the moon over water
And you darken the sky when you leave
Now I want to know how to keep you
Return to me
Return to me

Turn to me
Return to me

Everything I tell you has been spoken
And everything I say was said before
But everything I feel is for the first time
And everything I feel, I feel for you

I am here
Calling the wind
I am here
Calling your name
I am here
Calling you back
Return to me
Return to me

I know what it means to be lonely
And I know what it means to be free
Now I want to know how to love you
Return to me
Return to me

I am here
Calling the wind
I am here
Calling your name
I am here
Calling you back
Return to me
Return to me

I am here
Return to me



Wall of silence

I've seen that life
Touches us with pain
And we change
Becoming strangers to our friends
Tell me what happens along the way

I thought of us
Hard to talk these days
Did we change
Or were we strangers all along
Tell me what caused us to turn away

There's a wall of silence
Miles across
A wall between us
Holding back
Holding back our loss

I moved ahead
Thinking you'd be there
But it changed
And now we're strangers to our past
How did I lose you along the way

There's a wall of silence
Miles across
A wall between us
Holding back
Holding back our loss

I've seen that life
Touches us with pain
And we change
Becoming strangers to ourselves
Tell me what happens along the way
How did I lose you along the way


Take Me as I am

Take me as I am
Someone you don't know
Even in the dark
You may not be sure
Take me while you can
I can see you standing in the smoky entrance
Giving up your good intentions

Leave the shadows dancing
Dancing on their own
Let the moment free you now
And leave it all behind you
I'll know where you've gone
Let the world go on

Take me as I am
I may disappear
Fade into the night
Lighter than your thoughts
Take me while you can
Never knowing who or what you are until you're
Living with the unfamiliar

Leave the shadows dancing
Dancing on their own
Let the moment free you now
And leave it all behind you
I'll know where you've gone
Let the world go on

There's a place where fear won't find you
Where your secret dreams remind you
This is all you have to know and
This is all you have to go on
Everything you have inside you
Everything you need to guide you
This is all you
have to know and
This is all you have to go on

Take me as I am
Someone you could know
Even as we speak
You could change your mind
Take me while you can
Even if you shine a light into the mirror
You won't see me any clearer

Leave the shadows dancing
Dancing on their own
Let the moment free you now
And leave it all behind you
I'll know where you've gone
Let the world go on


Now I lay me down

Out of the silence
Into the blue
You finally remember where you've been
You finally remember who you are
And you remember the light

Out of the spirit
Into the flesh
The animal heartbeat in the chest
The naked desire
The appetite
But you remember the light

Now I lay me down
Now I lay me down
Now
I lay me down
To dream

Out of the fire
Into the night
Communion of body into smoke
Human and sacred
The sacrifice
You will remember the light

Now I lay me down
Now I lay me down
Now
I lay me down
To dream

Now I lay me down
Now I lay me down
Now
I lay me down
To dream
Of light
To Dream
Of Light


Always


I have come to know you
Over all these years
We've seen many days come and go
After all the time we've shared
All the secrets told
Will you ever say I love you

If you gave me nothing
Nothing more than this
I would have the memory to keep
Let me make a simple wish
As we fall asleep
Let me wake with you by my side

Always

If you have to leave me
Leave me with a kiss
Tell me how you feel without words
Are you so afraid to stay
Must you be alone
Let me wake with you by my side

Always


Paths of Desire

I have traveled the paths of desire
Gathering flowers and carrying fire
Raising a grave to the reasons behind me
Looking for strength as you live to remind me
I'm drawn to you
I'm caught in you

I am the fly who dreams of the spider
The path to the web becomes deeper and wider
I dream of the silk that is tangled inside you
And know that I want to be somewhere beside you
I'm drawn to you
I'm caught in you

In your eyes
All of the promises
All the lies
Will you keep all the promises
In your eyes

I am crossing the bridges of sorrow
Empty with yearning and full of tomorrow
The river is high and the bridges are burning
I know I've been hurt but I keep on returning
I'm drawn to you
I'm caught in you

In you eyes
All of the promises
All the lies
Will you keep all of the promises
In your eyes

I have traveled the paths of desire
Following smoke and remembering fire
The night is falling, the path is receding
I don't need to see it to know where it's leading

In your eyes
All of the promises
All the lies
Will you keep all of the promises
In your eyes


Be My Hero

Sleep with the window open
Sleep till tomorrow
Be my hero

Be without being lonely
Try to open
We try to open
Hoping for a hero

I want something
I want everything
I want nothing
Nothing else
I want someone
Not just anyone
Be my hero

Keep what is secret
Secret
We can believe it
Be my hero

I want something
I want everything
I want nothing
Nothing else
I want someone
Not just anyone
Be my hero

See how we measure feeling
From a distance
See how we measure people
Into zero

I want something
I want everything
I want nothing
Nothing else
I want someone
Almost anyone


Dark Time

What dark time is coming, what dark time is here
The prophet emerges in garments of fear
He calls to his people to come to the feast
They gather unto him to wait for release
Alleluia

Remember the warnings, forget what you're told
The heart of the temple is hollow and cold
The face of the prophet is tired and creased
He raises his cup and falls to his knees

Come take my body, come take my soul
Come take me over, I want to be whole
Come take my body, come take my soul

We stand in a circle, we stand in the square
The power of numbers, the power of prayer
The churches are empty, the priest has gone home
And we are left standing, together alone

Come take my body, come take my soul
Come take me over, I want to be whole
Come take my body, come take my soul

Come rhythm, come silence, come into our shame
The fear has no heart and the fear has no name
Come sing alleluia, come sing domine
Come sing alleluia, come sing

Come take my body, come take my soul
Come take me over, I want to be whole
Come take my body, come take my soul


If I Could


If I could, I would always tell the truth
I would always love you from the heart
If I could, I would take you in my arms
Take you inside, into my heart

If I could, I would be the place you turn
When you're feeling lonely or afraid
I would shine like a lantern in the dark
Take you inside, into my heart

When you feel as if you don't know who you are
I'll remind you with my love

If I could, I would always keep you safe
Take you inside, into my heart

When you feel as if you simply can't go on
I'll remind you that you're strong

If I could, I would love you as you are
Take you inside, into my heart
Into my arms, into my life


Falling Further In

Take me past this lonely truth and let me go beyond my skin
The walls that held me here before have no purpose anymore, let me enter in
Break me from my injured past and make me over in your arms
The pain that guided me before has no comfort anymore, let me enter in
From far away I hear my mother crying
The sky is gray, they say the earth is dying
I hear her voice and still I make a choice to stay

I leave a life behind me, I feel myself begin
I'm reaching out to keep you, falling farther in
I feel the light inside me, you go beyond my skin
I'm reaching out to keep you, falling farther in

Wake me with your dark embrace and make me open in your arms
I want to lose myself within, leave the person I have been, let me enter
From far away I hear my mother crying
The sky is gray, they say the earth is dying
I hear her voice and still I make a choice to stay

I leave a life behind me, I feel myself begin
I'm reaching out to keep you, falling farther in
I feel the light inside me, you go beyond my skin
I'm reaching out to keep you, falling farther in
