Lyrics

The Wind
01:42
I listen to the wind, to the wind of my soul
Where I'll end up, well, I think only God really knows
I've sat upon the setting sun
But never, never, never, never
I never wanted water once
No, never, never, never

I listen to my words, but they fall far below
I let my music take me where my heart wants to go
I swam upon the Devil's lake
But never, never, never, never
I'll never make the same mistake
No, never, never, never
Rubylove
02:38
Who'll be my love
You'll be my love
You'll be my sky above
Who'll be my light
You'll be my light
You'll be my day and night
You'll be mine tonight

Ruby eekyaa
Ehla xana
Ehla xana kondamou
Ehla bruwee
Maydeenabee
Seesu samee ahkeeraa
Ruby, Ruby kree

Ruby, my love
You'll be my love
You'll be my sky above
Ruby, my light
You'll be my light
You'll be my day and night
You'll be mine tonight
If I Laugh
03:20
'Cause if I laugh just a little bit
Maybe I can forget the chance that I didn't have
To know you and live in peace, in peace

'Cause if I laugh just a little bit
Maybe I can forget the plans that I didn't use
To get you at home, with me, alone

'Cause if I laugh just a little bit
Maybe I can recall the way that I used to be
Before you and sleep at night and dream

'Cause if I laugh, baby, if I laugh
Just a little bit
Changes IV
03:33
Don't you feel a change coming
From another side of time
Breaking down the walls of silence
Lifting shadows from your mind
Placing back the missing mirrors
That before you couldn't find
Filling mysteries of emptiness
That yesterday left behind

And we all know it's better
Yesterday has past
Now let's all start the living
For the one that's going to last
Yes we all know it's better
Yesterday has past
Now let's all start living
For the one that's going to last

Don't you feel the day is coming
That will stay and remain
When your children see the answers
That you saw the same
When the clouds have all gone
There will be no more rain
And the beauty of all things
Is uncovered again

And we all know it's better
Yesterday has past
Now let's all start the living
For the one that's going to last
Yes we all know it's better
Yesterday has past
Now let's all start living
For the one that's going to last

Don't you feel the day is coming
And it won't be too soon
When the people of the world
Can all live in one room
When we shake off the ancient
Shake off the ancient chains of our tomb
We will all be born again
Of the eternal womb

And we all know it's better
Yesterday has past
Now let's all start the living
For the one that's going to last
Yes we all know it's better
Yesterday has past
Now let's all start living
For the one that's going to last

Let's all start living
Let's all start living, living, living, living
For the one that's going last
How Can I Tell You
04:25
How can I tell you that I love you
I love you
But I can't think of right words to say

I long to tell you that I'm always thinking of you
I'm always thinking of you
But my words just blow away, just blow away

It always ends up to one thing, honey
And I can't think of right words to say

Wherever I am, girl, I'm always walking with you
I'm always walking with you
But I look and you're not there

Whoever I'm with, I'm always, always talking to you
I'm always talking to you
And I'm sad that you can't hear, sad that you can't hear

It always ends up to one thing, honey
When I look and you're not there

I need to know you, need to feel my arms around you
Feel my arms around you
Like a sea around a shore

Each night and day I pray in hope that I might find you
In hope that I might find you
Because hearts can do no more, can do no more

It always ends up to one thing, honey
Still I kneel upon the floor

How can I tell you that I love you
I love you
But I can't think of right words to say

I long to tell you that I'm always thinking of you
I'm always thinking of you

It always ends up to one thing, honey
And I can't think of right words to say
Tuesday's Dead
03:37
If I make a mark in time, I can't say the mark is mine
I'm only the underline of the word
Yes, I'm like him, just like you, I can't tell you what to do
Like everybody else I'm searching through what I've heard

Where do you go, when you don't want no one to know
Who told tomorrow Tuesday's dead

Preacher, won't you paint my dream, won't you show me where you've been
Show me what I haven't seen to ease my mind
'Cause I will learn to understand, if I have a helping hand
I wouldn't make another demand all my life

Where do you go, when you don't want no one to know
Who told tomorrow Tuesday's dead

What's my sex, what's my name, all in all it's all the same
Everybody plays a different game, that is all
Now man may live, man may die searching for the question why
But if he tries to rule the sky, he must fall

Where do you go, when you don't want no one to know
Who told tomorrow Tuesday's dead

Now every second on the nose, the humdrum of the city grows
Reaching out beyond the throes of our time
We must try to shake it down, do our best to break the ground
Try to turn the world around one more time

We must try to shake it down, do our best to break the ground
Try to turn the world around one more time

Where do you go, when you don't want no one to know
Who told tomorrow Tuesday's dead
Morning Has Broken
03:20
Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness
Of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light Eden saw play
Praise with elation
Praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day

Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world
Bitterblue
03:13
I gave my last chance to you
Don't hand it back to me, bitterblue
No, bitterblue

I've done all one man can do
Don't pass me up, bitterblue
My bitterblue

'Cause I've been running a long time on this travelling ground
Wishing hard to be free of going round and round
Yes, I've been moving a long time, but only up and down

I gave my last hope to you
Don't hand it back to me, bitterblue
My bitterblue

I've done all one man can do
Please help me lose this bitterblue
My bitterblue

'Cause I've been waiting a long time, aeons been and gone
Looking at the horizon for my light to dawn
Yes, I've been living a long time, looking on and on

I've been running a long time, summers come and gone
Drifting under the dream clouds past the broken sun
Yes, I've been living a long time to be back beyond

I gave my first chance to you
Don't hand it back, bitterblue
My bitterblue

I've done all one man can do
Don't pass me up, bitterblue
My bitterblue, bitterblue

I gave my last chance to you
Don't hand it back to me, bitterblue
Moonshadow
02:53
I'm being followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leaping and hopping on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land
If I ever lose my hands
If I won't have to work no more

And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry
Yes, if I ever lose my eyes
If I won't have to cry no more

Yes, I'm being followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leaping and hopping on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my legs, I won't moan and I won't beg
Yes, if I ever lose my legs
If I won't have to walk no more

And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south
Yes, if I ever lose my mouth
If I won't have to talk

Did it take long to find me, I asked the faithful light
Did it take long to find me and are you gonna stay the night

I'm being followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leaping and hopping on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow

Moonshadow, moonshadow
Moonshadow, moonshadow
Peace Train
04:02
Now, I've been happy lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun
I've been smiling lately
Dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be
Someday it's going to come

For out on the edge of darkness
There runs the peace train
Peace train, take this country
Come take me home again
I've been smiling lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun

Peace train sounding louder
Ride on the peace train
Hoo-ah-eeh-ah-hoo-ah
Come on the peace train
Peace train's a holy roller
Everyone jump upon the peace train
Hoo-ah-eeh-ah-hoo-ah
Come on the peace train

Get your bags together
Come bring your good friends too
Because it's getting nearer
It soon will be with you
Come and join the living
It's not so far from you
And it's getting nearer
Soon it will all be true

Peace train sounding louder
Ride on the peace train
Hoo-ah-eeh-ah-hoo-ah
Come on the peace train

Now, I've been crying lately
Thinking about the world as it is
Why must we go on hating
Why can't we live in bliss
For out on the edge of darkness
There rides the peace train
Peace train take this country
Come take me home again

Peace train sounding louder
Ride on the peace train
Hoo-ah-eeh-ah-hoo-ah
Come on the peace train
Peace train's a holy roller
Everyone jump upon the peace train
Hoo-ah-eeh-ah-hoo-ah
Come on the peace train

Come on, come on, come on the peace train
