Crystal World


The Hunter


A heart explodes every second on the street
The weight of the world and it's heaven
They'll always be together
The line is drawn and a circle is born
Stop and stare at your heart, at your heart
Open for all to see, a lifetime, a history

Oh help me please, why look away?
Oh can we stay together?
Oh help me please, why look away?
Oh can we stay together?

'Cause I am the hunter now
And I won't hear your cries
So dry your eyes friend
We'll make a wish then say goodbye
'Cause I am the hunter now
And I won't hear your cries
So dry your eyes friend
We'll make a wish then say goodbye

A heart explodes every second on the street
A sister, a daughter, a lover
Who hopes they're not forgotten
You crossed the line and committed a crime
It was there from the start, from the start
Oceans of empathy, and now this is history

Oh help me please, why look away?
Oh can we stay together?

'Cause I am the hunter now
And I won't hear your cries
So dry your eyes friend
We'll make a wish then say goodbye
'Cause I am the hunter now
And I won't hear your cries
So dry your eyes friend
We'll make a wish then say goodbye.

We Are the Sea


Under pentangle star our eyes flicker light from the distance
Life is a sea to me so harvest all you need to make a difference
In the wild we are free, this is all that we're meant to be
Leave all your fear behind, it's a hundred times better
I promise you, I promise you

Believe with full hearts
Origins and new starts
In you there's something magical
Our eyes under the pentangle
Begin again, the distance free
Leave it all behind, we are the sea

I hear that home is calling
Oh Lord, won't you take me back to sea

Nothing can stop us now our eyes glitter pride and joy fever
Life is a sea to me so stand and face the wave that it delivers
In the wild we are free, this is all that we're meant to be
Leave all your fear behind, it's a thousand times better
I promise you, I promise you

Believe with full hearts
Origins and new starts
In you there's something magical
Our eyes under the pentangle
Begin again, the distance free
Leave it all behind, we are the sea

I hear that home is calling
Oh Lord, won't you take me back to sea.

Hearts on Fire


I heard you lost your way
Marching to the beat of a serpent
A fire burning your horizon
Beyond the barricade
Fallen but this black heart is fighting
The hand it was dealt by fate

I hear you now and don't let me down
Leave the darkness behind
Cast aside and don't look behind, only silence
Promises will be all we need through the dark days
Lying softly to ourselves

Always never felt so good
We're the power
Our hearts on fire, hearts on fire
Promises we always made when our hearts on fire.
Always never felt so good
We're the power
Our hearts on fire, hearts on fire
Promises we always made when our hearts on fire.

They looked the other way
And now you don't even recognize them
Bound by a code of silence
So keep your enemies at bay
Marching to the beat of a serpent
Too close for comfort's sake

Always never felt so good
We're the power
Our hearts on fire, hearts on fire
Promises we always made when our hearts on fire.

Always never felt so good
We're the power
Our hearts on fire, hearts on fire
Promises we always made when our hearts on fire.

Violet Affair


Melt my heart
With summer in December for a while
Turnaround, take me back to the summertime

When you gave me violets
I pinned them in my hair
The scent, dizzy it fills the air
You gave me violets
I'll press them in my heart
We're unbound and free falling
Winter, spring, then summer falls
We're falling into this violet affair

Tempt my heart
July was so completely unparalleled
I know I'll never feel like that summertime

When you gave me violets
I pinned them in my hair
The scent, dizzy it fills the air
You gave me violets
I'll press them in my heart
We're unbound and free falling
Winter, spring, then summer falls
We're falling into this violet affair.

The Wind Breezes On


Well I got a secret
He told me it was sacred
Kick off your shoes and lay back
Today's not the day to show the cracks
Lift your head up, hold it now
Remember what the others say
Fear of the future's much too loud
What's there for you won't go running away

The wind breezes on
Like thoughts I can't rely on
The birds sing their song
While I figure out where I went wrong

I heard the others say
And watched them with their worry
Then turned and walked away
The wind it breezes on
I'll hold my breath so tightly
And run till it's OK.

Sugarland


Do you ever hold the flame?
Leave a light on
Will we recall their names?
Leave a light on
Deserter frequencies
There's no escape

Did we forget about fatality?
Where the wheels keep turning
In sugarland
We've lost control in all this urgency
And the fires keep burning
In sugarland

Our voyeurism won't ever set us free
A state emergency, not for you or me

Did we forget about fatality?
Where the wheels keep turning
In sugarland
We've lost control in all this urgency
And the fires keep burning
In sugarland

(Come to me, why won't you come to me?)
(A blackened heart, a blackened heart).

High Road


I hit the high road
Running till the batteries empty
A minefield of hope, but I'm ready
Ready to fly the nest or maybe fail the test
Let's make a date, take a chance, talk about it
An Olympian feat, I don't doubt it
Round and round he said to me

"Do you believe in love or rock n roll?"
"Do you believe in love or have you sold your soul?"
"Do you believe in love or rock n roll?"
"And which will be your downfall"

Be my baby, be my baby tonight
Be the boy that knows me but who never owes me
Saving all my best for you yet
And I need you now we're out of time
Be my baby tonight
Miles and miles but all the while
Won't you be my baby
Be my baby tonight

I'm not a fighter
Transparency's always apparent
But I'm always prepared for a torrent
Of tales and tests built only to impress
I'll take a chance, make a date, talk about it
With you if you think you are ready
Ready to fly the nest or maybe pass the test

Be my baby, be my baby tonight
Be the boy that knows me but who never owes me
Saving all my best for you yet
And I need you now we're out of time
Be my baby tonight
Miles and miles but all the while
Won't you be my baby
Be my baby tonight

I'm sorry if I let you down
You know that I can't give you up
And you said to me
"Do you believe in love or rock n roll?"
"Do you believe in love or have you sold your soul?"
"Do you believe in love or rock n roll?"
"And which will be your downfall?"

Laura


Laura, she was taken at the midnight hour
Full moon shining, lighting up the sky
No streetlights for guidance or warnings
When the eagle lands
Blood on our hands
Blood on our hands

Follow her, oh Laura
Her path gleams with rainwater
And foxes saunter, listening at their dens
The bats cry in despair till darkness ends
Under moonlit sky
Her jet black hair
Her jet black hair

And I wanna go where wild horses go
Where I left her, and nobody knows
I wanna go where wild horses go
Where I left her, and nobody knows
Noone knows, noone knows

And I wanna go where wild horses go
Where I left her, and nobody knows
I wanna go where wild horses go
Where I left her, and nobody knows
Noone knows, noone knows

Lost her in time and some other place
I remember when, back in '98
Lost her in time and some other place
Where Laura lies, now it's too late
Noone knows, noone knows

I'll wait for you where the horses run
But I'll never know where you have gone
I'll wait for you where the horses run
But I'll never know where you have gone
Noone knows, noone knows

And I wanna go where wild horses run
Where I left her, and nobody knows
I wanna go where wild horses run
Where I left her, and nobody knows
Noone knows, noone knows
Laura, oh Laura I love you.

Submariner


Your tired eyes
Leave me to the wilderness, leave me to the lions
And I see you there with the sun in your hand and the wind in your hair
A sorry man now the glory's gone
For you, for you,
He did it all for you

And your selfless pride
Bottled in a submarine
Leave it to the ocean
And I hold your hand
Sending shivers right down to the base of my spine
A lonely man, he's the only man
Who did it all
Who did it all for you

And you sold your soul to the deep blue sea
A submariner whose cool heart could never be free
Let him drift out on the tide
And you saved your heart for the deep blue sea
A submariner who promised to make you believe
That you'll never be apart

Your final reprise
Sail out on the heady seas
To salute devotion
And I see you there with the sun in your hand and the wind in your hair
A stoic man
A heroic man
Who did it all
Who did it all for you

And you sold your soul to the deep blue sea
A submariner whose cool heart could never be free
Let him drift out on the tide

And you saved your heart for the deep blue sea
A submariner who promised to make you believe
That you'll never be apart

And you sold your soul to the deep blue sea
A submariner whose cool heart could never be free
Let him drift out on the tide

And you saved your heart for the deep blue sea
A submariner who promised to make you believe
That you'll never be apart.

Gold


I fantasize
You and I, screaming just to make them go faster
I shut my eyes
The two of us, running till we're out of laughter

You're gold to me
Our light is fading
What's the use in crying
You know I'll always be there waiting
Softly now, reach out and make your pillow in my chest
From the playground of dreams
Where I don't mourn you anymore
You carved your name in my heart
So I can't break free from my past
And take a look at me now
Do you recognize me?

Long way from home
On a journey that I must make on my own
Through the playground of dreams
A shadow dancing all alone
You carved your name in my heart
Each initial etched so it would hurt
And take a look at me now
Do you recognize me?

I'm paralyzed
Broken ties, burned by our lack of answers
I shut my eyes
The two of us, running till we're out of laughter

You're gold to me
Our light is fading
What's the use in crying
You know I'll always be there waiting
Softly now, reach out and make your pillow in my chest
From the playground of dreams
Where I don't mourn you anymore
You carved your name in my heart
So I can't break free from my past
And take a look at me now
Do you recognize me?

Softly, softly now
Paint the town
A crystal world where we were born
A vision built to last
So please don't deny me

You carved your name in my heart
Each initial etched so it would hurt
And take a look at me now
Do you recognize me?

Wolves


Hope or pray, but how long
before their cruel minds answer you?
Ha ha ha ha

Hope until we make the rules,
Hold on, how long?
Ha ha ha ha

Blow by blow, oh how long
before you grace us with your song?
Ha ha ha ha

So come with me,
Come with me,
Come with me,
Come with me,
Come with me,
Come with me,
There's a place where you can go, you're angry!

Raise all your voices
Gimme all your hands, take the chances
Don't be fooled, wolves in disguises,
All your hands! All your hands!
Hail for better days!

Raise all your voices
Gimme all your hands, take the chances
Don't be fooled, wolves in disguises,
All your hands! All your hands!
Hail for better days!

Fear or change, oh come on,
And grab your fight and follow though
Ha ha ha ha

Distance will set us apart
Come on, dream on
Ha ha ha ha

Blow by blow, oh how long
before we make it on our own?
Ha ha ha ha

Raise all your voices
Gimme all your hands, take the chances
Don't be fooled, wolves in disguises,
All your hands! All your hands!
Hail for better days!

Raise all your voices
Gimme all your hands, take the chances
Don't be fooled, wolves in disguises,
All your hands! All your hands!
Hail for better days!
