What You Leave Behind

It's a constant revelation
Ever changing over time
As we chart our destination
Take our places on the line
Were we put here for a reason
Part of someone's grand design
Or does the answer come from living
Taking one step at a time

And we build on our traditions
Taking hope in what we find
And we strengthen our positions
On what's been left behind

It's a constant education
In a world of give and take
Along the way sometimes we stumble
But we learn from our mistakes
Always looking for an answer
To find the reason in the rhyme
There's a million burning questions
And we keep looking for a sign

And some call on intuition
Some call on the divine
In the end it doesn't matter
It's what you leave behind

And some call on inner vision
Some call on the divine
No matter what the inspiration
There's always something on the line
So don't squander what you're given
Make the most of precious time
Life's not only for the living
It's what you leave behind


Hands of Time

If we had only - spoken more and argued less
If we had only - Given it our very best
If we had only - Seen the signs and wondered why
If we had only - Not have been afraid to try

Hours turn into days - time's slipping away
If we could only turn back the hands of time
Why can't we turn back the hands of time

If we were only - easier to satisfy
If we were only - open to the other's side
If we were only - better than we had to be
If we were only - open to a remedy

Dawn turns into day - I feel us slipping away
If we could only turn back the hands of time
Can't we turn back the hands of time

Time waits for no one - but it's not too late
To make some changes - we still control our fate
We can't do nothing - when there's so much at stake
And time keeps tickin' away

If we could only - find the power to forgive
If we could only - open up and truly live
If we could only - face the truth, admit our sins
If we could only - open up our hearts again

Time's slipping away - we've got to live for today
If we could only turn back the hands of time
Why can't we turn back the hands of time


Let it Roll

There's a storm ahead - heavy winds are gonna blow
Take a hold of my hand - and just let it roll
You've got to roll with me - relax and let your feelings go
Try to follow my lead - just let it roll

Roll like the ocean - flow like the sea
Pour all your emotions over me
And just let it roll
Open up your heart and just let it flow
Nice and easy now, relax and try to roll when I roll

There's a hole in my roof - where the rain comes in
And it's washing away any hope I had to ever see you again
Unless you roll with me, sit back and set your cruise control
Try to follow my lead - learn to roll when I roll

Roll like the ocean - flow like the sea
Let all your emotions pour over me
Roll like the ocean - flow like the sea
Pour all your emotions over me
Just let it roll
Open up your heart and just let it flow
Nice and easy now - relax and let your feelings go
You've got to roll with me - take a hold of my hand
Try to follow my lead - learn to roll with your man

Roll like the ocean - flow like the sea
Let all your emotions pour over me
Roll like the ocean - flow like the sea
Pour all your emotions over me
And just let it roll


Out of My Hands

It's your decision, your turn to run with the ball
I can't take a position; I'm so tired of it all
I'll just wait for your call

It seems that I've been living in some imaginary place
And when the truth comes bearing down on me
It's more than I can face

Somewhere in a recess that I can't quite recall
Where the voice of reason, hit an emotional wall
Now I feel nothing at all

Except the constant ringing and the voices in my head
Like the sirens sweetly singing, telling me I've been mislead
And the walls keep bearing down on me
With words that must be said
Interaction, with compassion
These emotions that I dread

It's out of my hands - there's a side that cares too much
It's out of my hands - and a side that says don't touch

It's your decision; you can run with the ball
I don't have a position
I'm losing it all, I'll just wait for your call

There's a constant ringing, and the voices in my head
Interaction, with compassion - the emotions that I dread
And the walls keep bearing down on me
You don't seem to understand
It's out of my hands


Keep on Runnin'
(Instrumental)


Everyday

I keep drifting away
Sifting back thru the days
To when my eyes first came upon you
And you stole my heart away

Well the wheel does go 'round
And we've had our ups and downs
But I would never change a moment
For all the happiness I've found

And I still see you
Just the way that you were when our love was new
And I'm still feeling
All the things that I felt in my heart for you
And it never fades away - my love grows stronger every day

Yes the wheel goes 'round and 'round
And as the years go by I've found
That the love that I have for you
Is the one thing that stays true

They say home is where the heart is
And my heart's at home with you
I could never love another
After all that we've been thru

And I still see us
Just the way that we were on that fateful night
And I'm still feeling
All the things that I felt as our love took flight
And it never fades away - no it never fades away
My love grows stronger every day


I Need Your Love

Like the sun that brings the morning
And the start of each new day
Or the moon's glow in the evening
A gentle light to show the way
There's a source of inspiration
That keeps me driven to succeed
It's the love that you have given me
It's the one thing that I need

How can I hope to tell you
All the things that words can't say
Maybe I can make you realize all the ways
I need your love, I need your love
Your one true love

When the world gets hard to live in
And the shadows start to fall
In the midst of my misgivings
You're the answer to it all

How can I ever tell you
When simple words get in the way
If only I can make you realize that everyday
I need your love, I need your love
Your one true love

I have to try and make you realize
What words can't say

Like the sun that lights the morning
And the stars that fill the sky
You're the one light I can turn to
And nothing ever shines as bright
I need your love
I need your one true love



The Rhythm Won't Stop

I make my living playin' my guitar
It can be a hard life, going bar to bar
But there's a rhythm, the rhythm of the road
And when it calls to me, I've just got to go

And the rhythm won't stop till I reach the end
And the rhythm won't stop - it keeps callin'
And the rhythm won't stop - it's everywhere I go
And the rhythm won't stop - music is in my soul
And the rhythm goes on

It can be a lonely world, travelin' down the road
But it's the world for me, 'cause it's the one I chose
There's a new face 'round every bend
And the songs I sing, become my best friends

Chorus

I make my living playin' my guitar
It can be a hard life, but it's worked so far
There's a rhythm, the rhythm of the road
And when it calls to me, I've just got to go

Chorus


Reconciliation

I've been over it time and again
I'm still tryin' to cope with the loss of my best friend
You froze solid but I can bend
You're so cold to me, still I had to see you again
I'm short sighted but I can see, you're so important to me

Why can't there be some reconciliation
Between you and me
You know I need your love
Why can't there be - reconciliation

You wanted it your way
I wanted it mine there'd be no compromise
Now here I am in your doorway
Hoping that we can give it one more try
If time changes than so can we
At least a couple degrees

Why can't there be some reconciliation
Between you and me
You know I need your love
Why can't there be - reconciliation


My One True Love

The race is underway, with mountains yet to climb
And seeing you today reminds me of the times
When I was young, and mine had just begun

Now that we're alone, in the quiet of this space
There's things that must be said
And so, if I may speak, I wanted you to know
You are my one true love
And everything that I have in this world is yours

I know that it must seem, to you at best a crime
That we can't always be together
But the time you wish would fly, for me rushes by

The race is underway, and time is moving in
The hour's getting late
And so, before you sleep, I wanted you to know
You are my one true love
Everything that I have in this world is yours

The day will soon be here, and you'll be on your way
And find your place in this world
Soon you will be grown, a family of your own
And I'll be wishing you well
Always a friend - you can depend on me

The answers that you need are written on the wind
While your still young, it's time we begin

The race is underway, and time is closing in
The hour's getting late
And so, before I leave, I wanted you to know
You are my one true love
Everything that I have in this world is yours
You are my one true love
