Her Name Was Jackie

Her name was Jackie, could've been mine
But I let her go, in her own time
Her name was Jackie, 'could've been mine

Oh Jackie, come back for me
Oh Jackie, please come back for me

Her love for me, began as a secret
This English girl, with bright auburn hair
But then, she told me one night, head upon folded arms
And her eyes of blue, looking up into mine

Oh Jackie, come back for me
Oh Jackie, please come back for me

Catching my breath, looking upon you
My fool's heart, skipping a beat
But, I thought you were wild, how wrong can I be?
We were meant for each other, but I couldn't see

Oh Jackie, come back for me
Oh Jackie, please come back for me

Years later, I met you... with long shinning hair
And then I knew you... answer to my prayer
And, so many years... that I was alone
Without you, without you, without you

Oh Jackie, come back for me
Oh Jackie, please come back for me

And, you would have had me, if only you'd stayed
As you were, in that long night
Your flashing blues eyes, arms upon a table
Looking at me, looking at you

Oh Jackie, come back for me
Oh Jackie, come back for me
Oh Jackie, please come back for me
Oh Jackie, come back for me

Your name was Jackie, 'could've been mine
But I was a fool, and I never knew you
But, I'm wishing I had... Lord! I'm wishing I had!
Can you hear me now? I'm wishing I had

Oh Jackie, come back for me
Oh Jackie, come back for me
Oh Jackie, please come back for me
Oh Jackie, come back for me

Forever With You

Dyed in the wool
The colors of our lives are spun
The proof: forever we're on the run
Ah-ah, chasing our tails

With you, I stay
Too few, are the days of our lives and our years
But I'll be...
Forever with you

With you, I stay
Too few, are the days of our lives and our years
But I'll be...
Forever with you

My weary thoughts
Turn in the night
How often we fought
Convinced we were right
That desperate tone... so close

Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah

Lost, a Friend 

How are you, my old friend?
Are you happy, in the end?
You were given trust, a treasure in your hand
Paid betrayal, like a brand
Mark my word, and what your father said was true
Such a foolish thing to do

And, it's all too sad, but true, that in the end
You've forever lost a friend
Don't look my way, or call my name
It's time you realized, things will never be the same

Where are you, my old friend?
With another's wife again?
Given trust again, a treasure in your hand
Pay betrayal, like a brand
Break your word, but what your father said was true
Such a foolish thing to do

And, it's all too sad, but true, that in the end
You've forever lost a friend
Don't look my way, or call my name
It's time you realized, things will never be the same

How are you, my old friend?
Are you happy, in the end?
You were given trust, a treasure in your hand
Paid betrayal, like a brand
Mark my word, and what your father said was true
Such a foolish thing to do

And, it's all too sad, but true, that in the end
You've forever lost a friend
Yes, it's all too sad, but true, that in the end
You've forever lost a friend
Don't look my way, or call my name
It's time you realized, things will never be the same

A Song For My Son

Someday, someday, someday
Someday, someday, someday

A song for my son
To be the only one
Someday, he will be...
Someday, smiling free

A song for my son
To be the only one
You were born to be this way
But, tomorrow's another day
Yet, you are so fine in my eyes
Sticks, maps, strange acts, video games and broken bats
My little boy, who never cries
Sticks, maps, strange acts, video games and broken bats

Someday, someday, someday
Someday, someday, someday

Someday, he will be
Someday, smiling free
You were born to be this way
But, tomorrow's another day
Yet, you are so fine in my eyes
Sticks, maps, strange acts, video games and broken bats
My little boy, who never cries
Sticks, maps, strange acts, video games and broken bats

A song for my son
To be the only one

A song for my son
To be the only one

You were born to be this way
But, tomorrow's another day
Yet, you are so fine in my eyes
My little boy, who never cries

Ti-vo, ti-vo, ti-vo
Ti-vo, ti-vo, ti-vo

Someday, he will be
Someday, smiling free
Yet, you are so fine in my eyes
My little boy, who never cries
My little boy, who never cries
My little boy, who never cries

Agates In The Sand

Come walk with me, along the sea
Where the sunshine warms the land
And search with me, for treasures free
Like agates in the sand

Come wade with me, into the sea
And roil the foaming waves
We'll speak in awe, of the things we saw
In the damp and darkling caves

We'll stand, so tall, on the high cliff wall
'Let the sea breeze fan our hair
'Watch the sand crabs crawl, hear the seagulls call
As they wheel upon the air

Then sleep so sound, hearing the waves pound
In the not-so-distant surf
Wake in the morn, to the old foghorn
As the new day's given birth

So come wade with me, into the sea
And roil the foaming waves
We'll speak in awe, of the things we saw
In the damp and darkling caves

We'll sit and chat, of this and that
As we watch the rolling waves
- Of our loved ones gone, and 'how before long
God will open up the graves

As we wipe our tears, reviewing the years
We'll rejoice in hope, so near
'Back to the sand we'll go, faces aglow
Sharing all we hold so dear

So come wade with me, into the sea
And roil the foaming waves
We'll speak in awe, of the things we saw
In the damp and darkling caves

Come walk with me, along the sea
Where the sunshine warms the land
And search with me, for treasures free
Like agates in the sand
Like agates in the sand
Like agates in the sand

Worlds, In Their Turns

Far and far... so the tales do tell
Long to heaven, or oh so near to hell
Holding in a mystic, golden train
Calls to action; calls to light refrain

Wakeful Watcher, through the years
Peering through the billion spheres
Measure every star that burns, and...
Worlds, in their turns

Heros raise a pike, an axe, a spear
Wizards wield: thundering, primal fear
Nobles, ladies, oh! maidens, virtues torn
Love requited, but for some forlorn

Wakeful Watcher, through the years
Peering through the billion spheres
Measure every star that burns, and...
Worlds, in their turns

Beating fire, their hearts will pound
Through the skies, and underground
Dulcet tones, that drift upon the air
Balm the heart of whispering cold despair

Wakeful Watcher, through the years
Peering through the billion spheres
Measure every star that burns, and...
Worlds, in their turns

Ohhh! Burning through an acrid tear
Stygian darkness, or sunlight clear
Ever yearning, their hearts aflame
For deep seclusion, or hallowed fame

Wakeful Watcher, through the years
Peering through the billion spheres
Measure every star that burns, and...
Worlds, in their turns

Do You Remember Me?

Do you remember me?
'Heart upon my sleeve
Just look into my eyes
Always pleadingly

And, you'll never find me with you
And, you'll never know I care
I will follow close behind you
Turn around, I won't be there

I'm on my way
Yes, I'm on my way

Do you remember me?
Looking so lonely
A single man, in desperation
With nothing much to see

And, you'll never find me with you
And, you'll never know I care
I will follow close behind you
Turn around, I won't be there

I'm on my way
Yes, I'm on my way

Do you remember me?
'Heart upon my sleeve
Just look into my eyes, baby
Always pleadingly

And, you'll never find me with you
And, you'll never know I care
I will follow close behind you
Turn around, I won't be there
Turn around, I won't be there
Turn around, I won't be there

The Dying Of The Light

Life is but a wilting flower in the sun
Who can save you from yourself?
Grasp as you can, rage as you may
'Yet, there is no stay upon the dying of the light

At the gates of hell, you'll have you say
'Yet there is no stay upon the dying of the light

You live your life, as if you had forever
And who can save you from yourself?
Grasp as you can, rage as you may
'Yet, there is no stay upon the dying of the light

At the gates of hell, you'll have your say
Yet, there is no stay upon the dying of the light

Nobles, serfs, and slaves... are sand upon the street
And, who can save you from yourself?
Grasp as you can, rage as you may
'Yet, there is no stay upon the dying of the light

At the gates of hell, you'll have your say
Yet, there is no stay upon the dying of the light
At the gates of hell, you'll have your say
Yet, there is no stay upon the dying of the light

Grasp as you can, rage as you may
'Yet, there is no stay upon the dying of the light
So, grasp as you can, rage as you may
'Yet, there is no stay upon the dying of the light

Blue Castle

In a damp, old, arctic blue castle
Somehow, somewhere
Dwells a sad, old lonely minstrel
Who waits for her there

Strawberry hair, between the worlds
Search in despair, oh-oh-oh, ah-ah-ah-ah
La-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, la-da-da

Come, come to me my love
I fear, by twilight, unseen
A gate might grant my love
A love that's never been

And I embrace a wounded child
From many worlds, weir
Her gentle tears, like autumn's leaves
And long to hold her near

Strawberry hair, between the worlds
Search in despair, oh-oh-oh, ah-ah-ah-ah
La-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, la-da-da
