Sometimes

Sometimes when I lay myself down
and all around me is just the stillness of the night
So I close my eyes and I dream
about the heavens and the stars that shine so bright

The Earth seems so lonely in a cold forgotten place
In the Milky Way just a speck of dust floating in the sea of space
A sense of abandonment, feels like we’re out here all alone
Beyond the firmament a universe full of unknowns

Sometimes when I lay myself down
so many questions can keep me up throughout the night
So I hold you close and I find
love is the answer, for all the world a guiding light

The Earth’s not so lonely, it’s not a cold forgotten place
In the Milky Way we will shine like stars, we’ll break the bounds of time and space
There is no abandonment, we’ve never been here all alone
Beyond the firmament the place where hopes and dreams are born

I could never count the times
when I gazed up at the night
wondering where you were
Could I ever be sure?
Would I ever find you?
My one and only love

So many restless nights
gazing up at a million stars
wondering where you were
I know I can be sure
I finally found you
My one and only love

This Love

This love is like a lucid dream
I’m wide awake even when I sleep
it glows sublime, a radiant beam
casting light into our unknown deep

This love intense it ebbs and flows
always between the extreme and mild
We’re free as birds to come and go
Never afraid to unleash the wild

This love was forged before the Earth
In the heart of Eternal Desire
Sprung forth from pure and timeless birth
In the cosmos a star of restless fire

Under the Stars

Under the infinite wisdom of the stars
and the moon’s ever passionate glow
I came to know…

When you held me so tender and warm in your arms
I let go of the fear in my heart
and made a new start with you in my life.

The song of the ocean nearby
the stars twinkling bright in the sky
filling our souls with the music of love
lifting our hearts to the heavens above
falling in love once again…
with you!

Driving at Night

Driving at night
across the bridge
climbing higher and higher
the closest thing
to an airplane
as I see one flying
low over the city
coming in for a landing.

I want to fly
but not in a cockpit
I’d rather be
the one with wings
and then I’d fly
into the dark night
and I’d seek you out
and cure you
of its loneliness
