"Song For The Willing"

 

Invited by the gail
The sea goes on forever

You should open your sails

 

Carry my song

We’ll talk of tomorrow

It won’t be too long

 

Hope can be filling

And mountains can fall

If you are willing

And standing as tall

 

There’s no shadow hanging over me now

There’s a surge in the wandering tide

There’s a world outside

That spins on its own

 

Call to the sun

An ode to the morning

There’s battles to be won

 

Our eyes full of sleep

The colors of the ocean

So cool and so deep

 

There’s no sense in crying

For what has been split

Have no fear of dying

Someday you will

 

"Rosie"

 

Meet me out where summer ends

The leaves they were falling when I found you

 

You flew so long, that when you came down

The sky never bothered to announce you

 

You spent ten thousand miles on the run

And the radio whined for each one

 

Rosie, I am not like you

There’s a part of me that can’t stand it in this place

Rosie, half of what I do

Is like a big long list of why I ought to stay

 

All the time

When time runs out
I think only of the power that surrounds you

 

The day is done

The lights go out

You reach out into the emptiness around you

 

"I Hope This Helps"

 

You were wounded in battle

You’ve been talking in rhyme

You found patience in waiting

For some call or for some sign

 

Someday you’ll rise

The ice will melt

You’ll peak and you’ll smile

At the hand that you’re dealt

That day will come

You’ll see for yourself

For now I hope this helps

 

You were stranded in trouble

You were lost and confined

You were watching for someone

To turn back the hands of time
