Champagne And Wedding Bands 

Champagne and wedding bands, sacred vows and clasping hands 
To end our tragic plans, broken hearts and one-night stands 
Champagne and wedding bands, sacred vows and clasping hands 
To end our tragic plans, broken hearts and one-night stands 

Spirit me away again, bring the night, my only friend 
So I can again begin, but who can ever know the end? 
Make me be free at last, so bring the night, forget the past 
Mending my broken mast, sail moonlight, the wind at last 

Evermore…  nevermore…             so choose 

Champagne and wedding bands, sacred vows and clasping hands 
To end our tragic plans, broken hearts and one-night stands 
Champagne and wedding bands, sacred vows and clasping hands 
To end our tragic plans, broken hearts and one-night stands 

Show me how a maiden sings, wounded hearts, and pretty things 
Therein, what a prophet brings, wonders, hapless happenings 
True, and be of proper class, wisely girl, or fool’s ass? 
Tell me what will come to pass, bonnie boy, or bonnie lass 

Evermore…  nevermore…             so choose 

Champagne and wedding bands, sacred vows and clasping hands 
Champagne and wedding bands, sacred vows and clasping hands 
Champagne and wedding bands, sacred vows and clasping hands 
Champagne and wedding bands, sacred vows and clasping hands… 

Burning Into Twilight 

Ohhh, ohhh… 

We raise our dreams, craft our schemes, and run 
Watching our sun burning down into twilight hours 
Hold our hopes on high 
We build our towers, gather flowers, and rings 
Watching our sun burning down into twilight 
Wine glasses high 

Forget the forever war 
‘Lost what we’re fighting for 
‘No finer thing to do 
‘Spending my time, here with you 

We lift our songs, never here for long 
Watching our sun burning down into twilight hours 
Raise our voices high 
We build our towers, gather flowers, and rings 
Watching our sun burning down into twilight 
Wine glasses high 

Forget the forever war 
‘Lost what we’re fighting for 
‘No finer thing to do 
‘Spending my time, here with you 

Hey…! 

We build our towers, gather flowers, and rings 
Watching our sun burning down into twilight 
Wine glasses high 

Forget the forever war 
‘Lost what we’re fighting for 
‘No finer place to be 
‘Spending your time, here with me 

Mary Alice 

‘Bright the dawn that sends her on her way 
‘Bright the fields, upon the break of day 
‘Gentle smile to shame the risen sun 
And carry on, until the day is done 

Mary Alice, and the open trial 
Mary Alice, in the light 
Mary Alice, in her Southern style 
Mary Alice, in the night 
In the night 

Brown eyes a’twinkle as she, speaks to me 
Heart, a bonfire, to dry the very sea 
Of spirit’s yearning, and of… things to come 
Lover, mother, and always… Lady Fun 

Mary Alice, and the open trial 
Mary Alice, in the light 
Mary Alice, in her Southern style 
Mary Alice, in the night 
In the night 

“I love you, Mom” 
“I love you too, Tony” 

Mary Alice, in the light 

There’s a calling, for those who’re meant to be 
Above the breathers, and those that swim the sea 
Raised upon high, in union with the son 
‘Can be no question… she herself is one 

Mary Alice, and the open trial 
Mary Alice, in the light 
Mary Alice, in her Southern style 
Mary Alice, in the night 

In the night 
In the night 

And She Said…
 

And she said… 
And she said… 

You’ll never find another 
Girl like me 
And you can wait forever 
No one like me 

Awaiting your happenstance, no 
Girl like me 
You’ve got a snowball’s chance 
No one like me 

She can tell… 
She can tell… 

You’ll never find your way, to… 
A girl like me 
You’ll know you’ve seen your day, with 
A girl like me 

Your time will never come, for 
A girl like me 
You’ll wish that you still had some… 
One like me 

She can tell… 
She can tell… 

You’ll find that I was right, no 
Girl like me 
A’waiting a lonely night, no 
Girl like me 

I’ll be another man’s, no 
Girl like me 
You’ll see I’ve slip your hands, and… 
No girl like me 

And she said… 
And she said… 

She can tell… 
She can tell… 

And she said… 
And she said… 

Sarah   

I sure wish you’d talk to me 
I know you been thinkin’ about it 
I sure wish you would! 
I ‘been waiting all night 
For you…  just for you 

Sa…rah, you’re the only one 
Sarah, come to me 

Sa…rah, you’re the only one 
Sarah, come to me 

I loved you from the minute we met 
I only have eyes for you 
But I’d wait forever 
For you 

Sa…rah, you’re the only one 
Sarah, come to me 
If only you’d look my way… 
Sa…rah, you’re the only one 
Sarah, come to me 
If only you’d look my way… 

I wanna be with you, always 
But it seems so far 
But I’d wait forever 
For you 

If only you’d look my way… 
Sa…rah, you’re the only one 
Sarah, come to me 
If only you’d look my way… 
Sa…rah, you’re the only one 
Sarah, come to me 
If only you’d look my way… 

Sa…rah, you’re the only one 
Sarah, come to me 
If only you’d look my way… 
If only you’d look my way… 

Come What May 

Come what may 
We will always get through 
Come what may 
We will always be two 

‘Till the morning sun will rise 
‘Cast it’s warmth upon our eyes 
And we’ll stand in light again 
Greet your loving smile, my friend 

Come what may 
We will always get through 
Come what may 
We will always be two 

Our eyes meet, without a care 
Seeing so much we can share 
Knowing all that we have seen 
And the cords that bind between 

Come what may 
We will always get through 

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 

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   

Tell Me It Was Only A Dream 

Tell me it was only a dream 
Say that it was only a dream 
Inside my head 
Say that it was only a dream 

Tell me it was only a dream 
Say that it was only a dream 

Nothing comes of the night 
To anchor a restless soul 
So lost and alone 
And wanting you, and wanting you 

Tell me it was only a dream 
Say that it was only a dream 
Inside my head 
Say that it was only a dream 

Tell me it was only a dream 
Say that it was only a dream 

Walking among the trees, as you… 
…paced in the night 
That we were together, as one 
That we were together, as one 

Tell me it was only a dream 
Say that it was only a dream 
Inside my head 
Say that it was only a dream 

Say that it was only a dream 
Tell me it was only a dream 

Nothing comes of the night 
To anchor a restless soul 
So lost and alone 
And wanting you, and wanting you 

Tell me it was only a dream 
Say that it was only a dream 

Walking among the trees as 
You paced in the night 
That we were together, as one 
That we were together, as one 

La da da da da 
La da da da da da da 
Ah da da da 
La da da da 
La da da da da da da 
La da da da da da da 
Da da da da da da 
La da da da da da… da-ah-ah… 

Nothing comes of the night 
To anchor a restless soul 
So lost and alone 
And wanting you, too 

Into The Northern Sky 

Sometimes I just want to jet way, to Europe or someplace… over the North Pole, some night… with you 

Into the northern sky, at night, with you
Into the northern sky, at night, with you
Come away with me, ‘cross the open sea… tonight
Won’t you take my hand, ‘cause I wanna go, with you
Into the northern sky, at night, with you
On a big jet plane, ‘cause I wanna go, with you

Ahh…  Ahh…  Ahh…  Ahh… 
Ahh…  Ahh…  Ahh…  Ahh…  Ahh…

Into the northern sky, at night, with you
Won’t you take my hand, ‘cause I wanna go, with you
Into the northern sky, at night, with you
On a big jet plane, ‘cause I wanna go, with you
Come away with me, ‘cross the open sea… tonight
Won’t you take my hand, ‘cause I wanna go, with you
Into the northern sky, at night, with you
On a big jet plane, ‘cause I wanna go, with you

Ohhhhh………..

Other Flesh And Bone (acoustic) 

Through the drifting dusts of summer 
In the vagrant light of dawn 
‘Wolves a-howling on since midnight 
By the morning all are gone 

And out there, on the horizon 
A ragged hero rides alone 
To the master’s adamantine tower 
To the pillar made of stone 

And the morning rays upon his lance 
Telling all, the day has come 
And the burnished sheen upon his shield 
Master gone when day is done 

So cold the heart of those who prey on 
Other flesh and bone 
Other flesh and bone 

But the rose flower blooms sweet and sound 
In the ashes of the  past 
Where beauty, truth, and light are found 
And the time for war has passed 
But the rose flower blooms sweet and sound 
In the ashes of the past 
Where beauty, truth, and light are found 
And the time for war has passed 
Rule the day!  
Rule the day! 

From his tower, the Oppressor falls 
He was never meant to stay 
The iron fist, the gauntlet hand, 
That breaks upon the day 

Down to ash, his kingdom bright 
His dominion overthrown 
As the star falls in the night 
So, the land he called his own 

So cold the heart of those who prey on 
Other flesh and bone 
Other flesh and bone 

But the rose flower blooms sweet and sound 
In the ashes of the  past 
Where beauty, truth, and light are found 
And the time for war has passed 
But the rose flower blooms sweet and sound 
In the ashes of the past 
Where beauty, truth, and light are found 
And the time for war has passed 
Rule the day!  
Rule the day! 

And out there, on the horizon 
A ragged hero rides alone 
To a master’s adamantine tower 
‘Another pillar made of stone 
Cold the heart of those who prey on 
Other flesh and bone 
Other flesh and bone 
Other flesh and bone 
Other flesh and bone 
Other flesh and bone 

Bound To Leave Me 

‘Bound to leave me in the morning 
‘Bound to leave me, by the day 
‘Won’t be here in the morning, when I rise 
You’ll be gone, by light of day 

You’ll never stay 
You’ll never stay 
You’ll never stay 
Here with me 

We made love by candlelight 
‘Embers burning through the night 
Blue-eyed angel, I would keep you here with me 
Tristful man, I’m meant to be 

You’ll never stay 
You’ll never stay 
You’ll never stay 
Here with me 

You’ll never stay 
You’ll never stay 
You’ll never stay 
Here with me 

‘Bound to leave me in the morning 
‘Bound to leave me, by the day 
‘Won’t be here in the morning, when I rise 
You’ll be gone, by light of day 

You’ll never stay 
You’ll never stay 
You’ll never stay 
Here with me 

My Sweet Maureen 

My sweet Maureen – girl of my dreams 
How you bestir my heart, intimately 
Wisp of a girl, woman who smiles 
‘Speaks to me soothingly, feminine whiles 

And she’s ever so sure 
And she’s never so sure 
And she’s always aware of herself 

My sweet Maureen – girl of my dreams 
How you bestir my heart, intimately 
Lady in red, soft in our bed 
We lie in solitude, love in our heads 

And she’s ever so sure 
And she’s never so sure 
And she’s always aware of herself 

My sweet Maureen – girl of my dreams 
How you bestir my heart, intimately 
The wind in her hair, dancing a fire 
She is my golden one, my heart’s desire 

And she’s ever so sure 
And she’s never so sure 
And she’s always aware of herself 

My sweet Maureen – girl of my dreams 
How you bestir my heart, intimately 
Wisp of a girl, woman who smiles 
Speaks to me soothingly, feminine whiles 

And you’re ever so sure 
And you’re never so sure 
And you’re always aware of yourself 

The Lonely Girl 
(Instrumental)
