Night of Distant Echoes

Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh…
Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh…
Of late, I sit my lonely crag, and watch the world turn
And oft of late, and of afar, I listen to it burn
The willow wind, on o’er my lee, has scarce will to diminish
Or still the echoes in the night, ‘come running to their finish

And lone, against a crystal sky
I‘ll wait, until my end
Shall rip me forward, future-bound
Soon there, to see my friends

And though this world may rage and seethe, in conflict and in war
I sit and listen, knowing I’ve more right than ‘er before
To fear them all, so far from view, faint echoes in my ear
And beg the One, the Holy One, to bring their end, so near

And lone, against a crystal sky
I ‘ll wait, until my end
Shall rip me forward, future-bound
Soon there, to see my friends

‘Was a time, so long ago, I railed, to stand against them
And raised the hew and beckoned cry, against their faces, ashen
All would seek to shackle me, so fugitive and wild
To seek amidst the wrack of love, and so beget its child

And lone, against a crystal sky
I ‘ll wait, until my end
Shall rip me forward, future-bound
Soon there, to see my friends 

Eyes So Blue

She came from Jackson Hollow, when her schooling all had ended
We became good friends, or at least we both pretended
She reminded me of me, or of what I'd been before
And, the time she flustered red, when I told her she meant more, to me

What place have you lived, that a man could make you tremble?
I'd found no one like you, and I never could dissemble
Flower in the desert, my bright and shining girl
Gem of deepest ocean, my soft, exquisite pearl

I'd never seen eyes so blue, in a face of flax and linen
Or a smile so inviting too, what answer could be given?

Confident and free, the world at your feet
You were bold and you were fine, so faithful and discrete
You reminded me of me, or of what I'd been before
And, the time you flustered red, when I told you you meant more to me

You loved another man, only he would never have you
You wasted all our time, wanting only him to cling to
You reminded me of me, or of what I'd been before
And, the time you flustered red, when I told you you meant more to me

I'd never seen eyes so blue, in a face of flax and linen
Or a smile so inviting too, what answer could be given?

I found another girl, only doing what I must
And you found, without love, life was only dust
You reminded me of me, or of what I'd been before
And, the time you flustered red, when I told you you meant more to me

She came from Jackson Hollow, when her schooling all had ended
We became good friends, or at least we both pretended
She reminded me of me, or of what I'd been before
And, the time she flustered red, when I told her she meant more to me

I'd never seen eyes so blue, in a face of flax and linen
Or a smile so inviting too, what answer could be given?
I'd never seen eyes so blue, in a face of flax and linen
Or a smile so inviting too, what answer could be given?

The Somerset Mare

In the darkness of night, in the black final hours
She drifts a witchlight, among nightshade flowers
And shuns mortal men, with their wild-eyed stare
Through forest and glen, rides the Somerset Mare

Once mortal, once girl, turned now, by the Mage
Unrequited lover, to bring her to the cage
She runs in the woods, her true love forlorn
He searches to find her, his lover's heart torn

Yet one day they shall marry, as fey lovers do
For dread Fate must yield, to hearts that ring true
The spell will be broken, but for now she remains
The Somerset Mare, running wild, without reins

In the darkness of night, in the black final hours
She drifts a witchlight, among nightshade flowers
And shuns mortal men, with their wild-eyed stare
Through forest and glen, rides the Somerset Mare

The One Who Stole Your Life

I once knew you as the one who stole my life
And I knew you as the one who cut me with the silvered knife
Think you'd see the way to end your life extreme!
Always denigrating verities, supreme

Bones and broken hearts lie scattered in your train
Keep your spirits high, psychotically vain... insane

Many wanted me, but all eyes turned to you
Expectations rise, but how to tame the shrew?
And, I was thinking, I was meant to be your man
But, unwisely, I was scrabbling at the bottom of the can

Bones and broken hearts lie scattered in your train
Keep your spirits high, psychotically vain... insane

So I turned away, you led a willful life
And I took to hand your cousin for my wife
Now, I've a wealth of virtue, holding her in trust
And you're banished, witness: your plans turn to dust

Bones and broken hearts lie scattered in your train
Keep your spirits high, psychotically vain... insane

Bones and broken hearts lie scattered in your train
Keep your spirits high, psychotically vain... insane

And, now you know me for the one who stole your life
And you know me for the one who cut you with the silvered knife
Think you'd see the way to end your life extreme!
Always denigrating verities, supreme

And, now you know me for the one who stole your life
And you know me for the one who cut you with the silvered knife
Think you'd see the way to end your life extreme!
Always denigrating verities, supreme
Always denigrating verities, supreme
Always denigrating verities, supreme
Supreme

Round and Round

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Life’s but a walking shadow

And this world goes ‘round and ‘round
And this world goes ‘round and ‘round

Sunrise after sunrise, you know where you’ve been?
Wait for tomorrow, and do it again
As we ride the charger, meant to slow down
With banners of crimson, fading to brown

And this world goes ‘round and ‘round
And this world goes ‘round and ‘round

A generation, comes and goes
When will ours end? No one knows
And all think we, have the cure
But how to use it? No one’s sure

And this world goes ‘round and ‘round
One step forward, one step behind

And this world goes ‘round and ‘round
One step forward, one step behind

Sunrise after sunrise, you know where you’ve been?
Wait for tomorrow, and do it again
As we ride the charger, meant to slow down
With banners of crimson, fading to brown

And this world goes ‘round and ‘round
And this world goes ‘round and ‘round
And this world goes ‘round and ‘round
One step forward, one step behind

And this world goes ‘round and ‘round
One step forward, one step behind

Ever rising, and standing tall
Scale the mountain, before the fall
And we surge onward, to touch the sky
But who'll remember, when we die?

And this world goes round and round
And this world goes round and round
And this world goes round and round
One step forward, one step behind
And this world goes round and round
One step forward, one step behind

Sunrise after sunrise, you know where you've been?
Wait for tomorrow, and do it again
As we ride the charger, meant to slow down
With banners of crimson, fading to brown

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace, from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle
Like's but a walking shadow
A poor player, who struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing

And this world goes round and round
And this world goes round and round

And this world goes round and round
One step forward, one step behind

And this world goes round and round
One step forward, one step behind

One step forward, one step behind
One step forward, one step behind

One step forward, one step behind
One step forward, one step behind

One step forward, one step behind
One step forward, one step behind

One step forward, one step behind
One step forward, one step behind

Love Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

Love is not for the faint of heart
Chin up high, or we never start
The danger here, is never clear
But craven hearts, know only fear

But you'll be strong, enough for me
Or follow, to insanity
So, clench your teeth, it's worth the try
And set your gaze, upon the sky

Take my hand, and we can stay
Forevermore, and another day
Fearless, yearning, but true and free
We move, out upon the sea

You pull me down, and hold me close
Our eyes lock, nose to nose
My lips move, over your neck
Release your spirit, on the deck

From the start I knew, you were the one
And together we'd run into the sun
Always united, and never apart
And so easy, you took my heart

You said I was just what you wanted too
So many offering, but you waited true
And we're together, forevermore
We'll know each other, but still explore

And now you hold me, throughout the night
- Cuz I'm your angel, walk in the light
Your knight in armor, and ever so true
And all my dreams were fulfilled in you

And now I hold you, throughout the night
- Cuz you're my angel, walk in the light
And we're together, forevermore
We'll know each other, but still explore

No, love is not for the faint of heart
Chin up high, or we never start
The danger here, is never clear
But craven hearts, know only fear

But you'll be strong, enough for me
Or follow, to insanity
So, clench your teeth, it's worth the try
And set your gaze, upon the sky

No, love is not, for the faint of heart
Love is not, for the faint of heart
Love is not, for the faint of heart
Love is not, for the faint of heart

Born Of My Lover (Song for Ennis)

A bedeviled smile for an impish tease
Blue eyes looking so much like mine
Born of my lover, a daughter to please
And you'll be a woman, in time
You'll be a woman, in time

Stallion rampant, but a woman's heart
Constitution of leather and steel
My daughter, you're hardy and sturdy and smart
Yet you can't always do as you feel
Can't always do as you feel

And I was there when you first saw the world,
And all the wide world first saw you
Making your way, as the birthing unfurled
'Twas then we were no longer two
Then we were no longer two

Stallion rampant, but a woman's heart
Constitution of leather and steel
My daughter, you're hardy and sturdy and smart
Yet you can't always do as you feel
Can't always do as you feel

Standing On Hallowed Ground

And I'm standing on... hallowed ground
And I'm standing on... hallowed ground
Let it shine, let it shine, down on me
Let it shine, let it shine, down on me
Set me free, set me free, set me free
Set me free, set me free, set me free

And I'm standing on... hallowed ground
And I'm standing on... hallowed ground
Let it roll, let it roll, over me
Let it roll, let it roll, over me
Set me free, set me free, set me free
Set me free, set me free, set me free

And you're standing on... hallowed ground
And you're standing on... hallowed ground
Let it shine, let it shine, down on you
Let it shine, let it shine, down on you and,
Set you free, set you free, set you free
Set you free, set you free, set you free

And you're standing on... hallowed ground
And you're standing on... hallowed ground
Let it roll, let it roll, over you
Let it roll, let it roll, over you
Set you free, set you free, set you free
Set you free, set you free... be set free

And I'm standing on...
And I'm standing on...
