Love In Time

The world is filled with restless lovers
Ever waiting for another chance to try
To find what’s passed them by

The night is broken with the crying
Of the lost who wonder why
They’re never found
It’s such a sorry sound

(chorus)
But love in time will come to all
Take your breath and break your fall
All of those who hunger will be fed
And just when things are looking dark
Love will come and take your heart
And wake in you a promise long unsaid

The winds of fortune rarely grace
Those who try to force the pace
And will not see
That love can’t be had for free

Those who try to place a price on
The value of their sacrifice
Will suffer long
Theirs is the saddest song

(chorus)
(first verse)
(chorus)

And just when things are looking dark
Love will come and take your heart
And wake in you a promise long unsaid



Soft Voice

There’s a soft voice
That follows me
Everywhere
Everywhere I go
And it whispers
So softly
This time I know
This time I know

Oh, it wasn’t a dream
That follows me
Everywhere

I wonder if it’s all right
To call...call on you today
And I wonder
If it’s all right
To kiss...kiss your tears away

Oh, was it a dream
That followed me
Everywhere



So Many Changes

Do you think that it’s wise
To be cursing the cloudy skies
Don’t come to me with your cries
When the sun’s shining in your eyes

Just zip your coat to the cold
And look again for that hand to hold
I’m sure you must have been told
There’s more than one way of growing old

And there are so many people
Who are caught in a bind
So many people are captives of time
So many changes are waiting in line

(repeat 1st verse)


Come To The Harbor

Come to the harbor and dance with me, girl
Dance by the edge of the sea
The moon will be rising
The tide will be high
Oh, come let your fancy run free

Come to the harbor
And kick up your heels
Let’s dance ‘til the break of the dawn
The fiddlers will play us their jigs and their reels
The summer so soon will be gone


Come to the harbor and lay with me, girl
I sail with the turn of the tide
Come to the harbor and stay with me, girl
The sea is so deep and so wide

(repeat 1st verse)


A Growing Time

It’s a growing time
It’s the springtime of the year
It’s a growing time
The sun is moving near
It is yours and mine
The days are ours to share
Within our peaceful garden
And this growing time so fair

Caring quietly
To the garden in our care
It’s a joy to see
True love’s blossoms growing there
When you walk with me
A single shadow’s thrown
Across our peaceful garden
And this growing time we’ve known

(chorus)
Now the sheep are in the meadow
And the cows are in the corn
And if wishes were like horses we would ride
Like the light unto the shadow
And the blossom to the thorn
We’ve come to learn we flourish side by side
Side by side

(first verse)
(chorus)
(first verse)

Within our peaceful garden
And this growing time so fair



The Colors Of Eve

She never looks
And she never listens
Her heart only knows what it feels
And all that she is
And all that she isn’t
Her every movement reveals

All her bright moods
And all her dark tempers
She’s never the way she appears
She sometimes forgets
And sometimes remembers
And sometimes must laugh
Through the tears

Of lavender mornings
And gray afternoons
Sad when the day takes its leave
Nights of white passion
And deep shades of blue
These are the colors of Eve

The shade on her eye
Like pale purple asters
Runs down her cheek when she cries
And the ways of her heart
No man may master
Even though many will try

The blush on her cheek
Gold on her fingers
Shine when the lady’s in love
But a strong gentle touch
And a sunset that lingers
Are the things that her
Dreams are made of

And lavender mornings
And gray afternoons
Sad when the day takes its leave
Nights of white passion
And deep shades of blue
These are the colors of Eve
These are the colors of Eve


Diamonds To Dust

(chorus)
Diamonds to dust
Oh, diamonds to dust
Time can turn even
diamonds to dust

Love is a question
That few understand
It runs like a river
Between a woman and man
But its course can get twisted
And its bed can run dry
And our hearts become deserts
In the wink of an eye

Once there was love here
And once there was trust
Once it was honest
And open and just
Our love was a diamond
That grew between us
But time can turn even
Diamonds to dust

(chorus)

Time is a teacher
It’s kind and it’s cruel
It gives you the wisdom
To see you’re a fool
And it gives love and takes love
It hurts and it heals
And it never parts easy
With the truth it reveals

(chorus twice)


The Nature Of The Game

Fools run
Where an angel fears to follow
We’ve come to place no fool would go
Sparks fly
And the truth rings harsh and hollow
It’s the same old song
We’ve sung so long
It’s the only dance we know

Hard times
When the threads of love unravel
The arms stretch
But the hands don’t ever meet
True love is a rocky road to travel
You better get out of the kitchen
If you cannot stand the heat

Bad blood
Hostile words get spoke in anger
Caught up in a game where no one wins
Our heads tend to disregard the dangers
While our hearts hang in the balance
And the wheel of fortune spins

Why must every heart I trust desert me
Why must it always end the same
Fate deals the last one down and dirty
It’s the hands you keep
That make you weep
But that’s the nature of the game

Cold eyes stare you across the table
The stakes rise
With each moment you delay
Hang tough
If you still believe you’re able
Or else play your hand
The best you can
And get yourself away

Why does every heart
I trust desert me
Why must it always end the same
Fate deals the last one down and dirty
It’s the hands you fold
That make you old
That’s the nature of the game

It’s the hands you fold
That make you old
But that’s the nature of the game

It’s the hands you fold
That make you old
That’s the nature of the game



Sometimes A Song

Listen to me and I will try to
Sing you a song that makes you see
How much I long to be beside you
And how much you mean to me

Sometimes a song’s the only way to
Show you my heart will never stray
So if I can’t find words to tell you
I’ll sing what I cannot say

(bridge)
Let me sing you a field full of waving flowers
I’ll sing of the sun on the sea
For this is the way that you make me feel
Every time you smile at me
When you only smile for me

At times it must seem I take for granted
All of the little things you do
Know in your heart I’m so enchanted
And still so in love with you

(repeat verse 2, bridge, and verse)


Days To Come

Tell me true do you still believe the prophets
That you found among the clouds of youthful skies
Broken dreams line your face like stormy weather
But you can’t stay dry forever in the rain
The truth should now be plain
You can’t go back again

Living through what you used to call romantic
Now your voice betrays the panic in your eyes
Love at last but you still can’t seem to buy it
Now you’re caught between the quiet and the cries
Oh, tears and hopeful lies
Make a sad disguise

All your life you’ve been chasing some uncertain
Now you find yourself deserting all you know
Though it feels like this chill won’t leave you ever
You know you can’t stay cold forever in the sun
Oh, raise your head and run, run, run
Through the days to come



Birds

Lover, there will be another one
Who’ll hover over you beneath the sun
Tomorrow see the things that never come today

When you see me fly away without you
Shadow on the things you know
Feathers fall around you
And show you the way to go
It’s over....it’s over

Nestled in your wings my little one
This special morning brings another sun
Tomorrow, see the things that never come today

When you see me fly away without you
Shadow on the things you know
Feathers fall around you
And show you the way to go
It’s over....it’s over
