POWER OF TWO
 
DROP OF LOVE
Feeling small
A speck of dust
Without license
 
Nothing seems
To make that much
Of a difference
 
It’s easy to forget the call
The force of Nature
          behind it all
A stranger might do
something kind
Out of time, out of mind
 
It’ll never cease to surprise me
That we possess
such amazing power
It can change your day
from dust to gold
That’s what a Drop of Love can do

Feeling low
A hollow head
No substance
Once again
The world weighs down
On my shoulders
 
For every ill there is a cure
You never know
from where for sure
A pebble tossed into a pond
Making waves, far beyond
 
It will always astound me
that inside
there’s a magic power
To change a heart
          from night to day
That’s what a Drop of Love can do
 
It will never cease to delight me
That we possess
such amazing power
It can change your day
from dust to gold
That’s what a Drop of Love can do




BLOOD IN ALL STONES

Love in vain
When there's nothing real to nourish
All alone
I just can't help that feeling
That there's something more
That I've missed a perception
Can you explain,
what it is?
I'm in need of help
Can you check me in?
 
You have to court the muse
          in your life
So your soul may sing
You have to make her want to see you
To set your music free
You must believe
          there's blood in all stones
You can't know where love hides
You must believe
          there's blood in all stones
Water from a well
Flowers from seeds
Music from sounds
Love from nowhere
There's life in everything

A wall inside
You just can't face the music
You remember when
Everything glowed with essence
A spirit pure
It seems to have left you
What happened here?
Where did you go?
You must break the ice
and let things flow
 
You have to court the muse
          in your life
So your soul may sing
You have to make her want to see you
To set your music free
You must believe
          there's blood in all stones
You can't know where love hides
You must believe
          there's blood in all stones
 




 

 

STRANDED

I wore a phony smile 
on my face
Thought I was keepin'
          my heart safe
 
You tried to hide behind
Veils that were torn
By those butterfly wings
Beating up a storm
 
Then came a wave
From heavens above
Washed us both away
to this Island of Love
 
We are stranded 
No place to run
We're helpless
In the fire from this burnin’ sun
We’re stranded
In each other’s eyes
We're helpless
Before a love this bright
 
Now I can't remember
My usual lies
Can't seem to find those ol' alibis
 
You're in the same boat
Shipwrecked with me
All your make-believe
Got lost out at sea
 
Now we're stranded
Nowhere to run
We're helpless
In the fire from this burnin’ sun
 
We're stranded
In each other’s eyes
We're helpless
Before a love this bright




LIFE HAS JUST BEGUN

I hear the roar of thunder
In the distant winds
I see a bolt of lightning
And it strikes my soul
 
That all too soon
It will all be gone
Is this the end
or is there more to come?
 
Life has just begun
I’m waking up, I feel alive
It’s like I’m born anew
 
Life has just begun
A seed has seen the light of day
It grows to make us (love) true
 
I see the signs of sparks
Flicker in your eyes
We’ve been two fools
The march of days
almost took us down
 
Cause all too soon
 We’ll all be gone
Let’s treasure each moment
Yet to come
 
Gonna make some time
For a new beginning
Unleash yourself
from a life on hold
 
Trust the voice inside
When your heart is singing
There’s so many stories still untold
 




EVERY DAY

Every Day
I’ll find a way
To make that day
One to remember
 
And at the end
of every day
I’ll ask myself
What made it special?
 
Life is precious
Life is short
Life needs living
Life is all
 
Every time
I see a friend
I hope we’ll make
Rhymes to continue
And at the time
We part our ways
I’ll find a thought
We’ll think of later
 
Life is precious
Life is short
Life needs living
Life is all
 
Live it now
Live it strong
Heed the now
Heed the song
 





FACE YOURSELF

Didn't mean to lie
I just tried to cope
Turned out it made you cry
There was no reason why
 
Didn't mean to hide
I was caught off guard
The heat of sex and love
Was too high on my side
 
We draw the cards
They make no sense
But here we are
wondering
Did I do right by you?
 
Lose tomorrow
To win today
It turns out we all have feet of clay
Can you list the items
On your lowest shelf?
Can you look in the mirror
And face yourself?
Should have tried to go
But I was too slow
Perhaps I could have helped
Now I'll never know
 
Should have made it loud
Should have spoken up
Knew it was the thing to do
Now I'm not so proud
 
We make the call
Our courage fails
and then we fall
blundering
I wasn't more than that?
 





MAINTENANCE

The pain in tooth eleven
You tried so hard to ignore
The crack in the roof
That brought some rain
          onto the floor
 
You know it’s coming
It’s just a matter of time
(It) can only get much stronger
 
Maintenance!
Oh maintenance
Maintenance!
Oh maintenance
 
That noise in the engine
You pretend it isn’t there
Those bugs in the wall
They’re not going anywhere
 
You know it’s growing
There’s no escape
There’s only one solution!
 
Maintenance!
Oh maintenance
Maintenance!
Oh maintenance
You know you need it
It’s what you gonna do
It cannot wait any longer
There’s no tomorrow
So when you have a free moment
Make sure it counts for something
Write a poem, visit a friend
Allow yourself some fun
 
Maintenance!
Oh maintenance
Maintenance!
Oh maintenance
You know you need it
It’s what you gonna do
It cannot wait any longer
There’s no tomorrow
 
 
Maintenance!
Oh maintenance
Maintenance!
Oh maintenance
 
You know you need it
It’s what you gonna do
It cannot wait any longer
There’s no tomorrow
 





WIDE OPEN EYES

Here I am
Got something on my mind
It’s ancient news
 
Here it is
Catch it if your brain’s gone blind
Which pill to choose?
 
If you knew
What really happened
If you knew
The facts flushed down the drain
If you knew
The shadows in the halls of power
What would you do?
 
The world is in your hands
Make your final stand
With Wide Open Eyes
 
[Wide Open Eyes]
 
Here we are
Peons in a game
We’re not supposed to know
Here they are
Atrocities made in our name
It’s an evil show
 
What’s it take
To get you on the ground
What’s it take
To smell all the roses
What’s it take
To get the sleepers all waking
What does it take?
 
This is what we’ve done
Choices made alone
Do you hear the cries?
 
The world is in your hands
Make your final stand
With Wide Open Eyes
 
AH-IH-AH-IH-OH
 





IT'S TIME

It’s time
To be brothers
It’s time
To be sisters
It’s time
Unlock those doors
It’s time
Make love not war
 
Don’t you see enough of greed
Don’t you feel enough of need
How did we miss
          such an obvious truth
If I take it all
There’ll be nothing left for you
 
It’s time
To be sharing
It’s time
To open up
It’s time
We stopped being alone
It’s time
Can feel it in my bones
 
It’s time
we could use your help
It’s time
don’t be shy of your grace
You got pain, can’t spare a dime
In the rain, don’t have no time
All your worries,
          they are larger than mine
If you had to choose
Could you leave them all behind?
 
It will be all right now
We will see the light somehow
Hear the wakeup call
 
It’s time
For some changes
It’s time
For shapin’ up
It’s time
To stretch your love some more
It’s time
To close that dark misery hole
 
It’s time
the world seems to fall apart
It’s time
you can’t afford to lose your heart
 
It’s time
To be brothers
It’s time
To be sisters
It’s time
To let your grudges go
It’s time
To let your goodwill flow
