Daytime dark hides the way, keeping sleepy eyes unadjusted for the day This sense of slow that holds sway keeps a hold of me, feels like I’m here to stay Ray of light breaks through the clinging night Feels so right, gives me strength to hope for this natural light Break the night, set wrongs to right in this natural light Cloudy cover casts its doubt; I’m left to wonder what it’s all about I’d rather shield my eyes once the morning’s out than have to face day after day without Ray of light breaks through the clinging night Feels so right, gives me hope and the strength to cope to be touched by this natural light

Quicksilver slips through my fingers, never lingers for too long Enchanting necromancy, leads me back to your song Ö Quicksilver leaves me guessing, my soul confessing before you depart Illusory, & yet peruse with me the designs you’ve put upon my heart Ö Oh you are but a muse to me; desire, my only wish Even when you have left me then, I’ll continue my search for... This eminence, ebullience, I’m in it’s sway, This advent, so heaven scent, a treasure spent, she slips away Ö Quicksilver, make yourself known to me, your games, though strange they may be Captivate me to drink long and sweet from the bottom of the bottomless sea Ö á ë õ ¶ ∞ Õ

How could eyes so deep ever shed a tear? They'd drown the whole wide world, the whole wide world I fear How could skin so soft ever dry and crack? Only if the weight the of the world she takes upon her back Heaven save our souls, lost upon this sea Fill this hole she's left in me... How could innocence ever feel such pain? Only if her sorrows she swallows them like rain How could a heart so pure close itself to love? Maybe I'm just not the one... Heaven save our souls, lost upon this sea I see the whole of her, can she feel love in me? Set upon her face, such meaning in her eyes Will she ever be mine? Alone I bleed for her, and painful as it seems She's worth every tear, yeah, she's worth every scream Every quiver of my heart, she's earned all my pain It's what sets her apart... Heaven save our souls, lost upon this sea I see the whole of her, can she feel love in me? Set upon her face, such meaning in her eyes No reasons left to wonder why... Alone I bleed for her, and painful as it seems She's worth every tear, yeah, she's worth every scream Every quiver of my heart, she's earned all my pain It's what sets her apart...

When it rains it pours, so don't hold nothing back With so much pain for sure, it's not for grief I lack Come on rain from on high, leave nothing in your wake that's dry, let it rain... It's but a small price to pay to see the green grass grow Only through such lessons learned can we hope to know The wisdom pain bestows, the secrets of life's ebb & flow So it is, and it is so Clouds will gather, chasing light away, leaving all but cold and gray I won't surrender, I'll weather it till it wanes, so let it rain Pounding hard and fast upon the window pane, so that at once, all hope and joys restrained, upon us all some rain must fall, storms will rage, the fates will call So let it rain down on me Clouds will gather, cold winds will blow, its time has come, this I know As in the Yin & the Yang, there's never pleasure without pain, so let it rain So let it rain down on me, Let this pain and let it be, let it rain on me Let it rain down on me, let this pain set me free, let it rain down on me It's easy to believe that pain and misery serve no one at all, but upon us all a little rain must fall With pleasure comes its pain, they're one and the same The birdsong silenced, the sky a deepened grey My heart hangs heavy, I've not the words to say Soon enough I'll see the sun, the clouds will part, a new day will come, But for now, let it rain...

In your house across the street Might as well be across the sea There's no place there for me And the wind that blows feels so cold Oh, this hold you have on me I'd rather you held on, held on you see But you let go long ago And left me with nothing to hold Now I'm the one left letting go Such truth I felt in you Even though the moments we shared were far too few The tide leaves behind a bitter sand Such is The Story That Never Began Let me into your heart I'm outside your door, looking in your world Take me back into your arms for something greater than The Story That Never Began Oh, your kiss but a memory Your name a soft breeze that both calms and frightens me Our time together but a dream And it may yet be my fate, you see To love you without you here with me Let me into your heart I'm outside your door, looking in your world Take me back into your arms for something greater than The Story That Never Began Let me into your heart I feel your every breath, without you there's nothing left Take me back into your arms for something greater than The Story That Never Began Such truth I felt in you Even though the moments we shared were far too few The tide leaves behind a bitter sand Such is The Story That Never Began

When I lay me down to sleep, her skin’s so soft there next to me, All my worries melt away When the morning light opens her eye, truth be told, I can’t deny And makes me want to say… She’s all that She brightens my days and soothes my soul She mends my ways and makes me whole She gives me faith and truth be told she’s all that… When my dreams seem out of reach, she comforts me with gentle speech, And makes me feel alright Every woman and every girl, she’s everyone, she is my world, She is my day & night She’s all that She brightens my days and soothes my soul She mends my ways and makes me whole She gives me faith and truth be told she’s all that… She’s all that She keeps me warm when the sun goes down She makes the sun and moon turn round She keeps me head in the sky and my feet on the ground, yeah she’s all that…

It’s a funny thing how time stands still As angels sing to their hearts; fill One moment speaks a thousand words Frozen in time, no sound is heard Oh, how I’ve longed for this time to come, enjoined in this heavenly dance Frozen in time, her spell holds my mind, leaving me this moment entranced Entranced I am, by her spell Her magic flows from endless wells The world it stops when in her gaze Leaving me thus thusly amazed Oh, how I’ve longed for this time to come, enjoined in this heavenly dance Frozen in time, her spell holds my mind, leaving me this moment entranced No words can describe this glorious vibe, enraptured by her movement enhanced Her spell has surpassed all thoughts I’d amassed, forgotten in this moment entranced

Is this fresh rain or merely dew-like pangs shook loose by the West Wind’s swell? From the leaves high up within the trees from whence the rain, like tears, did fell… A symphony of softest subtleties eases all heartache and pain Revealing countless continuities and leading life to its joyous refrain The wind it whispers wonders across the sea so blue Realize this richest reason for dwelling as we do If we survive this selfish season & trust in what is true Gifts of countless numbers will rain on me & you, the fearless few… So sublime is this joy divine and it’s of this to which I sing True beauty lies in each & all our lives & it’s All This & Everything The softest rain falls from the sky again & it’s the sweetest song ever sang The seasons change & yet they stay the same & so it’s been since the first spring sprang The setting sun & rising moon are one when over forests & fields they both fly My heart replies to all the starry skies, so much so that my soul it sighs… So sublime is this joy divine and it’s of this to which I sing True beauty lies in each & all our lives & it’s All This & Everything I can’t abstain from the will to proclaim & it’s of this for which I sing I feel no shame in singing out your name & it’s All This & Everything
