Just a little bit... just a little bit closer... Do you believe in it? I've told you everything you know so far Invitational like a mirror I flash it right back to you I'm the original yeah everything you heard is true Don't keep me hanging on now count down to what you're always waiting for Into the infinite but you don't have to come if you're not sure I put it all behind me for just a little bit of your love So close your eyes now show me what you dreamed of Body Arithmetic didn't add up to everything you thought I was But like a hypnotist I grow more powerful with applause I put it all behind me for just a little bit of your love So close your eyes now show me what you're dreaming of What kind of charm can this be to make us carry on & on & on While the chips are falling down till the chance that we have is gone?

Mama Lama spinner of light So spectacular so outta sight Supernova help me to see Burn the night away shine down on me Mama Lama please hear my prayer Shine your light on us — Evil beware! All your children count on you now Come and answer us help us somehow Gonna come down from the sky She won't slip and she won't slide And you'll know it's for real cuz you'll see it in her eye Looking in & out for all of us From the beginning Carcinoma under the sun Stole the water out of everyone Mama Lama soaked up the sea Gave a gallon back to you & me Gonna come down from the sky Saves the teardrops when you cry And you'll know she's for real cuz you'll see it in her eye Looking in & out for all of us From the beginning Gonna come down from the sky Lay it down on me tonight And you'll know it's for real cuz you'll see it in my eye Looking in & out for all of us From the beginning

In this dream I'm at ease I feel you all around Soft & close & like a breeze Impossible to pin down I believe I believe It's harder to leave than it is To hurt someone Weary eyes can it be? I saw you on the phone Burns my throat when I breathe The thought of you with someone I deny I deny Singing myself a lonely lullaby To the limit to the light On & on we go I don't ever but I try I'm never gonna let go I believe in my heart We're headed for a new start Fuel me up strange mirage A quiver in the night That I may shed this camouflage And burn it in the daylight I'm alive Singing myself a lonely lullaby To the limit to the light On & on we go I don't ever but I try I don't know how to say no To the limit to the light On & on we go I don't ever but I try I'm never gonna let go I believe in my heart We're headed for a new start

Twilight If I don't greet the dawn above If I don't realize the time It's cuz I'm with my love Cold valentine Long years Our bones accustomed to the chill Though I can't stay forever here My true love will Forever near Our way by moonlight we did make But gentle did the waves Upon the silence break Till there through tender reeds I led my darling To sleep beneath the lake Her flower garland Petals drifting in a reaper's wake Sleep my love Let nothing wake Summer's only daughter Dreaming 'neath the water Summer's only daughter Safe there Too sallow for the sun to burn To supple for the wind to tear Though seasons turn She does not care Smile dear Ten thousand stars shine in your eyes Your kisses whispered from the deep In tiny bubbles rise & answer me In the ripples starry eyes are dancing The sun will rise soon I must leave Summer's only daughter Dreaming 'neath the water Smiling like I taught her Summer's only daughter

I don't know what you want but I give it anyhow With bruises rising dark upon this gift I offer now And offer long Out here on the scene A one-time homemade teenage dream How can I be denied? I don't really wanna to go out tonight Home fire's burning fever bright Got no alibi By virtue as it's own reward by custom duty bound The grape is sour upon the vine so heads up all around I'm coming down Out here on the scene A one-time homemade teenage dream How can I be denied? I don't really wanna go out tonight I woke up dreaming but how time flies Got no alibi Yeah where was I? I don't really wanna go out tonight I woke up dreaming but how time flies Got no alibi Was I here tonight? Well where was I? No Alibi

Dark birds in the morning sky Circle down around me Eyes blind but I see And I can hear them calling One drop in a poison cloud Down the days I glide No stepping out on this ride The feeling that I can't hide Heaven knows open eyes How did I fall so far so fast? Never saw angel spies Reaching out as I passed But I know that a ride like this won't last

I can't wait to get all our beans in a pile And then we'll make a date and just disappear for awhile Me and my girls yeah we'll take a turn at the dial Check out some part of the world nobody's seen in awhile I know this little place by the sea I think a garden'll grow enough for a small family So let's go just put a foot in the dream Follow the natural flow it isn't as hard as it seems New life begins with a fresh breath of air Just surrender your sins yeah cash out your despair Missed glory days frame a new gallery While the old raging blaze warms a new mantle piece This lone particle organizer Will trade a word on a stone to play photosynthesizer So let go just put a foot in the dream Follow the natural flow it isn't as hard as it seems

You are the one with sails on her bed You sleep with the sun overhead And the coral beneath — in up to my neck Then up on the reef like a shipwreck The fishermen stars cast nets from the sky With you in my arms we'll float up high On the coconut breeze, my castaway love I'll never leave while above there's a moon in the sky And we're gonna fly to Thailand Beautiful Island Blue ocean surrounds you So happy I found you The sea is a grail full up to the brim We're slapping our scales on the rim Like two fish on the sand — we'll melt in the sun But I'll keep you fanned with a leaf from the coconut trees And we'll ride the breeze to Thailand Beautiful Island Blue ocean surrounds you So happy I found you

Out of the ocean into the wind Cyclical motion the wheel's gonna spin Here in the half light the journey began I can't believe it's over now Capital cities all over the world Deserts & rainbows, diamonds & pearls Don't hold a candle to my paper girl I can't believe it's over now Reached the end of road somehow Can't believe it's over now Out on highway Number One I never way it coming She's calling me up, she's calling me home Now that I've found my way no more searching in vain Sunny days with the top rolled down were melting my brain Now I'm in no hurry yeah I'm right as rain I can't believe it's over now Reached the end of road somehow Can't believe it's over now Here in the half light the journey began I can't believe it's over now Reached the end of road somehow Can't believe it's over now Reached the end of road somehow Can't believe it's over now
