Should we love make heaven earth draw the sun from its quiet berth? And if we love turn earth to fire would it make hell of heaven's desire? And is desire worth burning for catching light at the earth's core? Yes let heaven come to earth and roll the sun to its gold hearth!

Hope 02:37
Hope takes me up when I'm down she gives me wings so by her side I ride the currents of my life. Lying on the fruit of her breast if I could always feel the soft and swell always awake in a sweet unrest lying still so I can hear her breath I'd live forever or fall to my death. If I fall prey to her ascent hope gentle and heaven and sent in the perpetual movement of her dreams I am content I am in my element. Lying on the fruit of her breast if I could always feel the soft and swell always awake in a sweet unrest lying still so I can hear her breath I'd live forever or fall to my death.

This is what I know I keep the faith in the darkness of the early morning and dawn won't be a warning it's always an awakening. I keep the faith even though I have been laid low I fall down, I get up, I grow. I see beauty in the world I see beauty in you I know that all that glisters isn't gold I know betrayal cuts with a scalpel I know how to wear a villain's smile. I keep the faith I fall down, I get up, I grow And I love and I trust and care I don't wear the mask of caring I hold betrayal and caring And I grow, I grow I grow. I keep the faith I keep the faith I keep the faith I keep the faith. This is what I know This is what i know

In your arms 04:08
In your arms I'm innocent safe from harm in your arms I'm your child you're my home. In your arms I lay and I'll stay all is calm the world falls away when I'm in your arms. In your arms I'm not alone I've done no wrong in your arms I'm your child you're my home In your arms I lay and I'll stay safe from harm the world falls away when I'm in your arms. In your arms in your arms in your arms in your arms.

Thresholds I have known some invite you like a crown or a queen or the moon... don't lose the art of going home. How to cross a bridge and get to the other side walk calmly you're always alone above the sweet waters wide. In love's open window the green willow sways with the tide if I sing soft and mellow could I sing down the moon. My heart floats up like a balloon I take comfort from the lonely night stars accompanied by faithful guitar could I song down the moon? Don't shine on me as if I'm your clown I think you're my fortune If I can sing a queen a tune I can sing down the moon.

Sleep with me put love to bed set my heart at rest let my lips be kissed. Sleep with me my heart's awake let our hands entwine put your mouth to mine and let's dream a sleepless dream. Sleep with me before it's all too much and my heart bursts let our lips touch. Sleep with me let torment sleep and let us kiss sweet kisses deep and let's dream a sleepless dream. Sleep with me put love to bed set my heart at rest and let my lips be kissed. Sleep with me my heart's awake let our hands entwine put your mouth to mine...

Rainbow 03:21
In the centre of the rainbow in the yellow with the blue in the sun in the raindrops life is true. In the glow of the rainbow in the tints of the clue in the joy and the sorrow life is true. In the arc of the rainbow the colours are one in the choir of the colours in the universal song. In the light of the rainbow in the variegated hue in the shadow of the light-flow life is true L'arc en ciel c'est beau je t'aime In the rain in the sunshine in the morning dew in the green of the rainbow I love you. L'arc en ciel c'est beau je t'aime La vie est belle. L'arc en ciel entre le soleil et les larmes l'arc do nos bras de nos coeurs de nos espoirs comme un berceau d'amour. l'arc en ciel c'est beau je t'aime la vie est belle.

Leaving 05:53
So love has left you high and dry left you bitter with the lie left you cold too cold to cry left you high and dry So now you're leaving no goodbyes with her quiet ghost to exorcise you going to walk from sunset to sunrise you're leaving no goodbyes.

Beside you 02:30
Beside you, by your side I have nowhere to hide Beside you, too close to see my body tells me. Beside you, I can't touch I love you too much Beside you, I'm gone astray my heart a runaway. Far away, far away if I could stay beside you. Beside you Beside you Love moves me Love takes me Love binds me Love breaks me Beside you.

There is a sea I can’t get over Neither have I wings to fly Give me a boat which carries two And both shall row, my love and I. Down in the meadows the other day Gathering flowers both fine and gay Gathering flowers red and blue I little thought what love can do. I put my hand into a soft bush Thinking the sweetest flower to find I pricked my fingers to the bone And left the sweetest flower alone. I lent my back against an oak Thinking it was a trusty tree First it bended then it broke And so did my false love to me. There is a ship and it sails the sea Loaded deep as deep can be But not deep as love I’m in I know not if I sink or swim (repeated) Love is fine and love is fair And love’s a jewel when it is new But when it’s old it growth cold And fades away like morning dew.
