    When I See You
    6:03
    A shadow
    A telephone pole
    On the wall beside your bed
    A streetlight
    Out of sight
    In the window above your head
    Your outstretched arms
    Crown of thorns
    Leave me by your feet
    And you eyes
    Your wind-swept eyes
    Leave me no place to hide
    When I see you
    Seeing me
    Being you
    Being me
    When I see you
    The dream
    Never seemed so real
    When I’m here
    The wind calls
    The snow falls
    Covering our footsteps down the street
    Your heart
    Beats like a prayer
    There’s no one there
    To hear
    You are alone
    You are free
    So why do I say, “Forgive me”?
    When I see you
    When I see you
    Seeing me
    Being you
    Being me
    When I see you
    When I see you
    I see you

    Redemption
    4:14
    Such a simple miracle
    Keeps shining in my face
    There can be no exceptions
    There’s nowhere to escape
    Redemption
    Sweet redemption
    There can be no escape
    Redemption
    Sweet redemption
    Don’t you leave it too late
    Shimmering instant destiny
    All things are second only in me
    You whisper to my ear
    Do you want the song from me
    You have no choice
    I want everything
    Redemption
    Sweet redemption
    There can be no mistake
    Redemption
    Sweet redemption
    Don’t us leave it too late

    All Our Heroes
    5:55
    We were young
    We built this boat
    To take us to what ever directions away
    We didn’t care
    Our fortunes were set
    And all our heroes
    Famous for their disrespect
    It was all so easy
    You sang the song
    I played along
    So enthralled with the curve of your breast
    You said that I
    Never knew who you were
    I was so obsessed
    That’d you’d have it any other way
    All your heroes
    Wandered insatiably
    And somewhere between here and Delphi Satori
    We got washed up
    In a sea of possibility
    And lost the simplicity
    Must have been
    One of those alien conspiracies
    And I blamed you
    You blamed me
    When will you reveal to me
    Just exactly who you intend to be
    There’s no before or after
    Does any of this matter
    There’s no one left to impress
    And the stage is set
    Just one last step
    And then it was time to part
    Together we could only go so far
    And maybe the world
    Now the sun sits in my heart
    Just because you were part of my life
    And I, a part of yours

    Gone
    5:23
    What a difference
    A day makes
    There’s no looking back
    When the branch breaks
    Through the dark side of this
    It holds up the stars
    Tonight we’re going to mars
    I’m gonna in Paris, France
    On a day just like today
    And almost remember
    The snow falling down
    Standing I look up into the sky
    Then I’m gone

    Blue Star
    3:29
    There is no place to go
    Come and rest your weary soul
    You’ve been chasing your blue star
    Through the long cold night
    Just let it shine
    Come and rest your weary soul
    Plant the seed and the flower grows
    There is nothing to fear
    It’s all right here
    Just let it grow
    You’ve been chasing you blue star
    Through the long cold night
    Let it shine

    Home
    2:00
    Well I was born without a name
    Beyond the cold green hills
    of Northumberland Strait
    My great-grandfathers of Port Hood
    Are all dead and gone, moved away
    And I’m another motherless son
    Chasing the stars through the sky
    Until I find my home to rest
    And finally say goodbye
    And why do you turn me away my love?
    For too long I’ve been wondering
    It’s an ancient wind
    that blows me back across
    The Straits of Northumberland
    And I’m another motherless son
    Chasing the stars through the sky
    Until I find my home to rest
    And finally say good-bye

    No Landing (Lucknow)
    7:01
    Many are the roads that are offered
    Many are the times that I will stray
    Still for all the directions that I’ve travelled
    It is here that my heart will remain
    Many colours are the jewels that sparkle
    Many pleasures I will hold and embrace
    Still for all that this world has to offer
    It is here that my heart will remain
    So I’ll wait for the day
    When all my tricks
    Fade away
    I just want to be free
    I just want to be free
    There’s a full moon
    Smiling down on Lucknow
    And she is singing her old songs to me
    A distant train plays the drum
    The crickets sing along
    And the dogs are barking down in the street
    And I know from this place there is no leaving
    Still tomorrow silver wings fly me back home
    To a valley in the spring time
    I’ll be there to see the new green leaves grow
    And I’ll wait for the day
    When all my tricks
    Fade away
    I just want to be free

    White Marble Ganesh
    6:29
    She came up to me
    Dressed in rags of orange drapery
    She said I was going to die
    But I could learn to fly
    There is a sky
    Beyond the mind
    Beyond all time
    Behind the eye
    White marble Ganesh
    Drinking milk on my tv
    Simple miracle on channel 9
    If you wanna see
    Then she said to me:
    Hare Rama, Rama Krishna
    Hare Rama Krishna, Krishna
    Hare Rama
    Rama, Hare Rama Hare Krishna
    Hare Rama Krishna, Krishna
    Hare Rama Krishna, Krishna
    Hare Rama Krishna Hare Rama Krishna
    Hare Krishna
    Hare, Hare
    The night before I was so drunk
    Fell asleep on this city park bench
    I woke up to the sounds of these
    White teenagers beating up on Moroccan kids
    They were throwing bottles and stones
    They were trashing their backs
    She came up to me and she said
    That I don’t have to believe in this life
    There is a sky beyond the mind
    Beyond all time
    Behind the eye
    White marble Ganesh
    Drinking milk on my tv
    Simple miracle on channel 9
    If you wanna see
    Then she said to me:
    Hare Rama, Rama Krishna
    Hare Rama Krishna, Krishna
    Hare Rama Krishna
    Hare Rama Hare Krishna
    Hare Rama, Rama Krishna
    Hare Rama Krishna, Krishna
    Hare Rama, Rama Hare Rama Hare Krishna
    Hare Krishna
    Hare Krishna
    Hare Rama, Rama Krishna
    Hare Rama Krishna, Krishna
    Hare Rama, Rama Hare Rama Hare Krishna
    Hare Krishna . . .

    Star Of The Show
    4:41
    We hold on to all we know
    To give meaning to this ancient ritual
    Make sure this dance
    Won’t be the last
    Spin on the floor
    So give me something to believe in
    And we’ll turn one last dance ’round the floor
    I wanna learn again
    What I already know
    There’s this movie in my head
    I’ve never seen before
    Even though
    I don’t know who’s playing the lead role
    You give me something to believe in
    And I’ll be the star of the show
    Yes I know, that I’ll find
    Something here to ease my stumbling mind
    Take me to a quiet place
    Where love can grow
    So give me something to believe in
    And a quiet place where love can grow
    You give me something to believe in
    And I’ll be the star of the show
    In a quiet place where love can grow

    Heaven
    6:51
    Everyone’s trying to get to the bar
    The name of the bar is called Heaven
    The band in Heaven
    Play my favourite song
    Play it once again
    Play it all night long
    Heaven is a place
    Where nothing ever happens
    There is a party
    Everyone is there
    Everyone will leave at exactly the same time
    It’s hard to imagine nothing at all
    Could be so exciting
    Could be so much fun
    Heaven is a place
    Where nothing ever happens
    When this kiss is over
    Start again
    It won’t be any different
    It will be exactly the same
    It’s hard to imagine that nothing at all
    Could be so exciting
    Could be so much fun
    Heaven is a place
    Where nothing ever happens
