Track Name: Feeding The Spirit
Feeding The Spirit

Every night I stare at the ceiling
and count all the tiles and lights
Then like a miracle I find myself sleeping
And dreaming of holding you tight

How many tiles and lights will it take
before you’re here with me in the flesh
Completing my dreams with an ending
Where you and me and our realities mesh

Feeding my spirit - Fueling my thoughts
On beyond reason - Your essence has brought
The circular meaning to which I have sort
I won’t deny it
I don’t wanna be left alone with no ending

Every day I stare out the window
and count all the leaves that blow by
Then like a miracle I find myself leaving
my spirit beginning to rise

I am set free to go searching my way
for the one piece I’m missing inside
The love of my life keeps on calling
Keeps teasing to close the divide.

Feeding my spirit - Fueling my thoughts
On beyond reason - Your essence have brought
The circular meaning to which I have sort
I won’t deny it
I don’t wanna be left alone with no ending


Feeding my spirit - Fueling my thoughts
“On beyond Zebra” - Your essence have brought
The circular meaning to which I have sort
I won’t deny it
I don’t wanna be left alone
I don’t wanna be left alone with no ending

Track Name: Fading Away In Slumber (version 2)
FADING AWAY IN SLUMBER

Hey, kid, why you always cryin' with that photograph?
Hey, kid, sometimes you gotta smile and let out a laugh.
Hey, kid, it's not like we are dealing with the end of all we know
Hey, kid, there's a time and place for healing,
You just have to let her go

Fading away in slumber, lettin' her rest in peace
(fading away)
Fading away in slumber, hopin' she found relief
(fading away)
Take it from a friend : Life is for the living

It’s ok, we’re all human beings in the here and now
It’s ok, the present feeds the future when the past allows
It's ok, don't let fears and misconceptions tell the story on your face.
It’s ok, to re-write her best intentions even though she fell from grace

Fading away in slumber, lettin' her rest in peace
(fading away)
Fading away in slumber, hopin' she found relief
(fading away)
Take it from a friend : Life is for the living

Fate is dealing the numbers
You may not understand how they fall
Just remember your time together has brought you where you are
And though she’s among the stars, someday you will be too

Fading away in slumber, lettin' her rest in peace
(fading away)
Fading away in slumber, hopin' she found relief
(fading away)
Take it from a friend : Life is for the living
Track Name: Wake Me When It's Over (Version 1)
WAKE ME WHEN IT'S OVER

Diamond promises await
So much for trusting your honey
So you leave it up to fate
And now he took all of your money

Well he sleeps like a prince
He had you thoroughly convinced
Then you hit bottom and there ain’t no net
You’re easy to forget
Wake me when it’s over

You were so gullible that night he swept you onto his bed
Selling you tears and romance
Such and easy mark to see - you had coming - so did he
You lost all your life lines - what a dumb ass!

Well he sleeps like a prince
He had you thoroughly convinced
Then you hit bottom and there ain’t no net
You’re easy to forget
Yeah, you hit bottom
Too late for regrets
The stink of his shadow is all that you get
Wake me when it’s over

So they say you live and learn
In your case we’ll make an exception
When I’m your number one concern
It’s time you pawn off your confessions

Well I sleep like a prince, I got ya thoroughly convinced
Then you hit bottom and there ain’t no net
You’re easy to forget
Yeah, you hit bottom
Too late for regrets
The stink of my shadow is all that you get
I’ll wake you when it’s over
It’s over

Take a leap
Take a powder
Take a leap
Take a powder
Take a leap
Take a powder
Take a leap
Take a powder
