Autumn Leaves

The falling leaves drift by my window
The falling leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sunburned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

Stepping Stone

I remember way back, way back when
I said I never wanna see your face again
Cause you were loving, yes, you're loving somebody else
And I knew, oh yes, I knew I couldn't control myself
And now they bring you back into my life again
And so I put on a face just like your friend's
But I think you know, oh yes, you know what's going on
Cause the feelings in me, oh yes, in me are burning strong

But I will never be your stepping stone
Take it all or leave me alone
I will never be your stepping stone
I'm standing upright on my own

You used to call me up from time to time
And it would be so hard for me not to cross the line
The words of love layed on my lips just like a curse
And I knew, oh yes, I knew they'd only make it worse
And now you have the nerve to play along
Just like the maestro beats in a song
You got your kicks you get your kicks from playing me
And the less you give the more I want so foolishly

...Through My Eyes

There are things in life you'll learn and
In time you'll see
Cause out there somewhere
It's all waiting
If you keep believing
So don't run, don't hide
It will be all right
You'll see, trust me
I'll be there watching over you

Just take a look through my eyes
There's a better place
somewhere out there
Just take a look through my eyes
Everything changes
You'll be amazed what you'll find
If you look through my eyes

There will be times on this journey
All you'll see is darkness
Out there somewhere daylight finds you
If you keep believing

All the things that you can change
There's a meaning in everything
And you will find all you need
There's so much to understand

Look Through My Eyes

Night Cloud Dreaming

In a better - or at least different - world,
I would capture clouds to ride and glide upon,
Letting their manes carry me through to other lands,
Taming their skittish and sometimes umbrageous moods
And disappear into an ever renewed sunrise.

In a better - or at least different - world,
I would gather shreds of clouds left on the bushes
In the midnight garden after darkness has been,
Full of dew beads and tears shed in one’s sleep,
And make a coat of dreams to fly away.

In a better - or at least different - world,
I would wander into the misty garden
Feeling multiple breaths from other dimensions
Reach for my skin, for my soul, lick existence away
And disappear without a trace.
