Lyrics for Secrets in the Sand

DESERT SAND

Verse I
In the Desert Sand, there are mysteries…

There are happenings there…

That goes beyond belief
A lone rider against the wind

Racing time, flying away in the dark of the night…

Chorus

She could pale the moon and a dozen stars,

He’d gladly give his life and the planet Mars…

For one night, for one night of her love…

For one night of her love, under the stars above

Each of them searching, searching for secrets in the sand
Wasn’t it you, that said that everything would be fine?

How come it’s me, that keeps on laying my life on the line?

On the line?

Verse II

Walking, on the planet surface

I was incognito, when you held out your hands

Two ghosts from far away, each of us grasping

Grasping, at embers in the wind…
TIMES LIKE THESE

Verse I
When I see you in that picture book I call my mind,

I know that soon, I’ll be hearing from you

And that your face won’t be too hard to find

How have you been?

What’s been going ,

What’s been going on?

How have you been, what are you doing baby?

How come it’s been so long?

Verse II
When I look into your eyes

And I finally realize

What a silly fool I’ve been

All my hopes,

All those dreams

All the laughter and the tears

They come crashing in

How have your been?

What are you doing baby?

What’s been going, what’s been going on?

How have you been, what are you doing baby?

I hope you’re going strong

Chorus
Times like these, you know you’ll never get a second chance

Times like these, you’d better know them before they’re gone

Times like these, you know there’s really only one way out

Times like these, you’d better hold them with all your might
Verse III
Like a ballerina, dancing across to center stage

In the cold glare of the light

Up above the wooden floor

She’s got high hopes for tonight

How have you been?

What’s been going,

What’s been going on?

How have you been, what are you doing baby?

I hope you’re going strong

 

AVALANCHE

 

 

Verse  1
I have broken many promises

All along the way

But I can say quite honestly

That there will be another day
Even if you don’t have all that you want

Or everything that you need

I can say from the depths of my heart

It’s O.K. to believe
Imagine everything you’ve ever wanted

Imagine all those things that you’ve been dreaming of…
Chorus

When that peace hits you,

You know that peace will hit you hard

Like a falling avalanche,

An avalanche of love
When that peace hits you

you know that peace will hit you hard….

Like a falling avalanche,

An  avalanche of love…

Verse II
I have walked so many pathways

On many distant shores,

But I can say quite honestly

That there is really so much more
Even if you don’t have all that you want

Or everything that you need

I can say from the depths of my heart

It’s O.K. to believe
Imagine everything you’ve ever wanted

Imagine all those things that you’ve been dreaming of…

HOLD ON
Verse I

It doesn’t really matter,

How the race was run,

It doesn’t really matter,

Even if you won,

Winners and losers,

All the same

Each of us playing variations on a game,

Singing,

Chorus

Hold on –hold on, to love,

Hold on, hold on….,

To his love,

Singing,

Verse II

Just like an Eagle,

Flying high up on the sky,

My wingtips touch the mountain tops,

Sometimes it makes me cry,

Sooner or later you’re going to have to see,

You’re never going to leave this world unti,l

Your spirit’s been set free singing,

Bridge

It took a long time a coming,

Yet it went so quickly away,

It took a long time a coming,

Yet it went so quickly away…,
Verse III

It doesn’t really matter,

When you saw the signs,

When you break a heart you really,

Leave them feeling blind,

Sooner or later you’re going to have to see,

You never love somebody,

Without truth and honesty, singing,
Verse IV

Porque  no me quieres asi?,

Tu me conoces no?,

Todo mi vida es tuyo,

Quiero estar contigo,

Por el resto de mi vida,

Por favor,

Por favor mi amor, te amo,

Te amo mas que puedo a decir,

I MUST BE DREAMING

Chorus
I must be,
I must be,
I must be,
I must be dreaming,
I must be dreaming,
Won’t you tell me one more time?

I must be dreaming

To feel your body

To have you kissing on me
Verse
Flip of the coin she said

as she put my clothes away

Luck of the draw

She shrugged her shoulders

As if to say…

Tell me,

Tell me,

Tell me,

Tell me one more time…
Bridge
Cool dresses,

Marmalade messes, baby

That’s what love means to me

Hard candy

Opened up brandy baby

That’s what love means…

FLAMETHROWER

Verse I
Whoa…  I’m not feeling good

Since you left the neighborhood

I’m not feeling good, feeling good

Whoa… Yea you let me down

Just like a circus clown

Yea, I keep falling down

Falling down

Bridge
And it seems she found a man

And it’s more than I can stand…

What did I say?

What did I do?

Tell me one more time!

What did I say?

What did I do?

Cause she’s a flamethrower baby…

Yea, she’s a mountain falling down on me

She’s a modern day tsunami

Yea, she’s a tank rolling over me…
Chorus
Flame thrower, flamethrower

She’s a flamethrower baby…

Flame thrower, flamethrower

She’s a flamethrower baby
FLY

Verse I

I see the shadows on the canyon walls,

Marking time…

Sitting on the park bench,

Feeding the pigeons and growing old

I remember you at seventeen

When everything that we had was so fresh and clean…

Verse II

Standing on the edge of the sea,

I feel the wind

I feel her spirit hovering over me,

I don’t know why…

Why am I so deathly afraid to tell you how I feel

When everything that we had was so real

Chorus
I really think I need to know…

What kind of man you think I am inside

I really think that we can fly

I really think that we could be something good

Fly!

I really think that we could be something good

Bridge

 

It’s like a river,

Running through my eyes…

Suddenly I can really read between the lines

It’s like a river,

Running through your eyes…

Suddenly I can really read between the lines

SOLAR WIND

Verse I
The solar wind,

Brushes on the planets as they roll on by…

And Saturn lies

And tortured Venus shines in the night sky…

Chorus
And you believe, yes,

You want to believe in the science

That surrounds your dreams

When fact is fiction

When it’s not what it seems

Not what is seems…

 

Verse II
A broken ship,

Wrecked upon the playa like an open book

Her cargo hold,

Washed clean empty by the sea…
Chorus

And you believe, yes,

You want to believe in the magic

That surrounds your dreams

When in fact it’s fiction

When it’s not what it seems

Not what it seems…

“Spirit of America”
Verse I

In the cool of the morning

I saw the first rays of the sun

I remember the danger

And all the damage that was done
I drug myself off to work on that day

I couldn’t concentrate

All I saw were faces of gray

Faces of gray
Chorus

So many families

Wrapped in their anxieties

I don’t believe this

I can’t believe I saw it go down

Saw it go down
Then I heard the whisper of America

Then I heard the spirit of America

Giving me strength

Telling me to jump to my feet
Verse II

Flying high on silver wings

There were angels in the sky

Each of them knew what he had to do

Before they called to say goodbye
There was no rhyme or reason

This was just blatant treason don’t believe this

I can’t believe I saw it go down

Saw it go down
Chorus

So many families

Wrapped in their anxieties

I can’t believe this

I don’t believe I saw it go down

Saw it go down
Then I heard the whisper of America

Then I heard the spirit of America

Giving me hope

Telling me to go and be free

Then the world heard the spirit,

The spirit of America

Yes, the world…

Yes, the world…
Don’t Be Afraid Of Love

Verse I

Walking out of a Rocky Horror Picture,

1:30 or more,

Flying toast,

Pepsi’s and paper

I make my way for the door

Loving you was a fantasy

And making love was a dream

Here it is three o’clock thirty,

I hear a silent scream!
Chorus

Don’t be afraid of love,

Don’t be afraid of your

Own silly shadow,

Don’t be afraid of love,

Even if they leave you

Hanging by threads…

Hanging by threads

Hanging by your heart strings,

Hanging by threads
Verse II

A gypsy rose

Texas bound,

Well I’m a California boy

She’s headed back to the lone star state

To bring her lover home

Well I can deal with misery,

And thanks a lot for the fun

I’ve had a lot of good time women,

But you’re the only one…
Chorus

Don’t be afraid of love

Don’t be afraid of your

Own silly shadow

Don’t be afraid of love

Even if they leave you

Hanging by threads…

Hanging by threads,

Hanging by your heart strings

Hanging by threads

Even though

It might be over now,

I haven’t given up yet

And though it might be finished now

On that you can bet…

Mission Statement:
Passion!  The word conjures up images of torrid romance, intense emotional need and the total loss of control of our senses as we fall into the abyss of ecstasy.

It is all of these, but this thing passion, this reason to breathe and live our dreams, is the most honest of pursuits that we can follow.

Passion energizes, eliminates time and places its’ participant “in the zone” so to speak where all that is important is the connection of the mind, body and soul to the task at hand.

For myself, this creativity involving emotion, storytelling and the interpretation of life through song and lyrics is my passion. It is the place where my understanding of, and my connection to God intersect.

As I see it, living is about having a passion in life for life and to share with others the intensity of your commitment to your art.

Please, enjoy these few songs from the heart.   Each one of them is the place in my soul where the joy and passion for my life have become one.
