SKELETON DREAMS

 


01. A NIGHT LIKE THIS

I close my eyes

On a night like this

Under a desert sky

I close my eyes

For a thousand years

For a thousand years

For a thousand years

I lost my dreams

On a night like this

Fade away

Fade away

And I look in the mirror

It’s all secure

On a night like this

An ancient life, an ancient town

Forgotten gods are rising up

And I look in the mirror

An ancient life, an ancient town

Forgotten gods are rising up

And I look in the mirror

And I look in the mirror

It’s all secure

On a night like this

Fade away

Fade away

I close my eyes

On a night like this

Under a desert sky

I close my eyes

For a thousand years

For a thousand years

For a thousand years

And I look in the mirror

It’s all secure

On a night like this

An ancient life, an ancient town

Forgotten gods are rising up

And I look in the mirror

An ancient life, an ancient town

Forgotten gods are rising up

And I look in the mirror


02. NAKED

This night will be endless

And I hope you know why

And the shadows will change and expire

They won’t hide the light

Won’t hide the light

And the shadows will change and expire

While I’m singing my song

And my heart

Is still a rebel wild

A rebel wild

And tonight, all the stars might be drunk

As the moon’s in a trembling mind

Like the colours of a Flemish painting

Dreams are never fade

Dreams are never fade

On this night of the falling angels

And I hope you know why

And the lights will change and light up
The tower behind
Behind

It might be safe forever
Forever

If I could tell you, I’d let you know

If I could tell you, I’d let you know

I would let you know

I would let you know

I would let you know

And I feel naked

And I feel naked


03. MAYBE GOD KNOWS

I don’t know the burden of a wizard’s dream

I don’t know its spell and what I can believe

I don’t know the reason why heaven should be real

I don’t know the answer

Maybe God knows

Maybe God knows

I don’t know what’s human in a modern world    

I don’t know the doom – the judgement of hurt

I don’t know the reason why hell should be real

And what about the hellfire?

Maybe God knows

Love and hate

Courage and fear

I don’t the answer

The thin line in between                          

Love and hate

Courage and fear

I don’t the answer

The thin line in between  

                      

       Let’s talk about love, let’s talk about hate

I don’t know the thin line in between

Let’s talk about love, let’s talk about hate

I don’t know the thin line in between

I don’t know the cost of a wizard’s spell

I don’t know the key and no one can tell

I don’t know the answer and I’d better think twice

If Judas Iscariot really was right

Maybe God knows

       Love and hate

Courage and fear

I don’t the answer

The thin line in between

Love and hate

Courage and fear

I don’t the answer

The thin line in between

Let’s talk about love, let’s talk about hate

I don’t know the thin line in between

Let’s talk about love, let’s talk about hate

I don’t know the thin line in between

Maybe God knows


04. FRIENDS OF MINE

I sing my song of the lonesome town

Just for a while, come on, let’s sit down

And I know that you know, you can’t deny

It’s me on the street, simply cast aside

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

I sing my song of the lonesome lake

Just for a while come on take a break

I know that you know, you can’t deny

It’s me at the shore under a red diamond sky

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

You listen to my song and I hope you’re all fine

I sing my song of the lonesome road

Just for a while, come on, please take note

I know that you know, you can’t deny

It’s me on this road along the far side

Where are you, all friends of mine?

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

I sing my song of the lonesome sky

Just for a while, come on, take your time

I know that you know, you can’t deny

It’s me in the blue in this pale sunset light

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

You open your eyes and I hope you’re not blind

I sing my song of the lonesome end

Just for a while, come on, take my hand

I know that you know, you can’t deny

It’s me on the deathbed and I am all smiles

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

Where are you, dear friends of mine?

You stand by my grave and I hope that you cry


05. RESURGENCE

A missing letter in my name

Deep water without rain

     I’m dreaming

Resurgence

A minor chord out of scale

A band is playing miles away

And I’m listening

Resurgence

Resurgence

I understand what love never would

I understand what love never could

And the howling wind

Is crying and crying

From a mountain so high

That love never would

And the howling wind

Is crying and crying

From a water so deep

That love never could

The king’s speech in the servant’s mind

A wild garden full of poisoned vines

The old times are fading

Resurgence

       A lighthouse far from the sea

A mermaid born to be

In a life out of water

Resurgence

I understand what love never would

I understand what love never could

       And the howling wind

Is crying and crying

From a mountain so high

That love never would

And the howling wind

Is crying and crying

From a water so deep

That love never could

Resurgence


06. WHERE HAS IT ALL GONE

I see the shadow in your face

The fields of green an empty place

Where has it all gone?

Where has it all gone?

The summer closed and left your heart

Flowers faded in the yard

Where has it all gone?

Where has it all gone?

Still time for hope

Still time for faith

Still time for love

It will always last

The silence in your distant mind

The echoes low and far behind

Where has it all gone?

Where has it all gone?

I see in you the faithful child

I know you are, I won’t be blind

Where has it all gone?

Where has it all gone?

Still time for hope

Still time for faith

Still time for love

It will always last

Still time for hope

Still time for faith

Still time for love

It will always last


07. RAINBOW MAN

I’m a rainbow dancer

I’m dancing in the sun

And my heart is full of rain

I’m a rainbow dancer

I’m dancing through the clouds

And all the pattern’s clear

And all the pattern’s clear

Out of the blue into the yellow light

The violet line is close beside

And true colours are shining

That’s why I’m here

I’m a rainbow dancer

I’m dancing in the sun

And my heart is full of pain

And my heart is full of pain

I’m a rainbow dancer

And I’m dancing in the sky

The colours are all mine

The colours are all mine

Can you see the orange dream?

From red to green – it’s in between

And true colours are shining

That’s why I’m here

That’s why I’m here

I’m a rainbow man

I’m a rainbow man

       That’s why I’m here

I’m a rainbow man

That’s why I’m here

That’s why I’m here


08. DARK SUZANNE

Dark Suzanne

It’s you I miss

Wherever you are

I feel your bliss

I reach the stars

In the night

Dark Suzanne

I feel your lips

Wherever you are

I know your kiss

I touch the sky

With my mind

In the night

What do we believe?

What do we believe?

What do we believe?

What do we believe?

Dark Suzanne

I know your heart

Wherever you go

I remember the start

Our secret vows

In the night

Dark Suzanne

I know your dreams

Whatever you do

I feel your tears

There is no truth

When the lovers are tired

In the night

What do we believe?

What do we believe?

What do we believe?

What do we believe?

09. NINE WHILE NINE

 

10. I COME TO GRIEF

The night is closing and I’m breathing

A hundred times – a hundred nights

Through windowpanes the lights are bleeding

I’m on my own – tonight

And I feel you in my brain

The silent moon sends me insane

Feel a funeral in my mind

Where have you been – where have you gone?

I come to grief

And I’ll be home, back with the dawn

I’ll embrace the seasons of my life

From high above you can see

The sun through my wild eyes

The sun through my wide eyes

Like a nameless summer breeze

I touch your face and wonder

The night is dreaming and I’m walking

A hundred miles – a hundred ways

Out in the dark a drop of rain

Falls on my lips, it feels all right

When I hold you in my arms

Just a second beyond the stars

I feel freedom in my mind

Where have you been – what have I done?

I come to grief

And I’ll be home, back with the dawn

I’ll embrace the seasons of my life

From high above you can see

The sun through my wild eyes

The sun through my wide eyes

Like a nameless summer breeze

I touch your face and wonder

The night gets old and I’m weeping

A hundred years – a hundred tears

I’m heading for illusion street

But I can’t complain – I won’t

And I kiss you in my dream

The fearless moon becomes unreal

See a wedding in my mind

Where have you been – where have you gone?

And I’ll be home, back with the dawn

I’ll embrace the seasons of my life

From high above you can see

The sun through my wild eyes

The sun through my wide eyes

Like a nameless summer breeze

I touch your face and wonder

I come to grief

I come to grief


11. APOLOGISE

In this time
All the shame inside
My hope

My fear

By now

In my dream

In my song

One day you’ll come

One day you’ll see

Tonight

I apologise

For you

I apologise

Tonight

A silver line

All the shades behind

My wish

My pride

I can’t breath

I can’t talk

One day you’ll know

One day you’ll feel

Tonight

I apologise

For you

I apologise

A dream I know in mind

A dream that’s yours and mine

Tonight

I apologise

For you

I apologise

Tonight

I apologise

For you

Tonight

For you


12. THE WORLD IS GOING ON

It’s your own fading light

Why can’t you see?

It’s your own restless mind

Why can’t you sleep?

It’s your own shattered dream

Why can’t you fear?

It’s your own silent scream

Why can’t you hear?

Why can’t you hear?

It’s your own wonderful life

It’s your own wonderful world

And the world is going on

As all our lives become one

And the world is going on

As all our hearts become one

And the world is going on

As all our loves become one

And the world is going on

As all our prayers become one

It’s your own aimless road

Why can’t you leave?

It’s your own sinking boat

Why can’t you steer?

Why can’t you steer?

It’s your own wonderful life

It’s your own wonderful world

And the world is going on

As all our lives become one

And the world is going on

As all our hearts become one

And the world is going on

As all our loves become one

And the world is going on

As all our prayers become one

It’s your own starving child

Why can’t you see….

 

13. HOLD ON TO THIS NIGHT

A thousand dreams in every night

And this unknown feeling won’t change our mind

And a thousand words so true and kind

Words at once so hard to find

Stay near to me in this velvet shine

Near as the grapes to the seducing vine

And we taste the vine tonight

Hold on to this night

A thousand shades in every night

And this unknown feeling out of sight

And peaceful prayers so true and kind

Prayers at once so hard to find

Stay near to me down on the blossom lane

Near as the rainbow to the summer rain

And the rain will flush away the pain

Hold on to this night

Hold on to this night

A thousand vows in every night

And this unknown feeling by our side

All these answers true and kind

At once so difficult to find

Stay near to me in this fading light

Near as the teardrop to the loving eye

And I feel this love in our mind

Hold on to this night

Hold on to this night

Hold on to this night

Hold on to this night

 

14. WHERE HAS IT ALL GONE (DESERT MIX)
