Lyrics » In Every Other World

My fading heart . . revived in moments here without you, child

Tear down my world, and still your monument it rises

My fault? . . yeah, it’s right
Time will heal in moments, though I’ve lost thee in this whirl
We’ll meet in every other world

My breaking fall . . .you’ve seen me land before you face side down
So that is all? . . I’ll keep on hanging on that first time

My fault? . . yeah, it’s right
Time will heal in moments, though I’ve lost thee in this whirl
We’ll meet in every other world

I turned to this song to find myself divided by an only love, and a world that still turns round
Am I the only one to feel there’s something writing on the canvas of my heart?

My fault? . . yeah, it’s right
Time will heal in moments, though I’ve lost thee in this whirl
We’ll meet in every other world . . .

It’s one day a lady . . next, a quivering song that lifts me high off the page

Then money will fail when you think that you’re safe till you all but forget about stars and love

Am I holding onto these woes to forget I’m just floating in space
I try remember to listen to the sound of the heart before my name

In the hammock alone again, with so little time for these wonders and worlds
The view for too many’s confused, with so little love, ho do we get by without . .

Holding onto these woes, and forget we’re just floating in space
I try remember to listen to the sound of the world before my name

Have you travelled through the mirrors of worlds beyond this place?
Will you be dreaming of love the day that you leave behind your name?

Dawn again . . still up again . . wait for what the light will frame
Pouring it . . a cup of it . . over and up again
Hearing it . . singing it . . writing it . . it all comes again
Sharing . . caring . . flying back over this . .

World that bears us in gold and shimmering grace
Now I know that I’m hearing the sound of the soul beyond my name

And I’ll travel through the mirrors of worlds beyond this place
And I’ll be dreaming of love the day that I leave behind my name

Oh, how the love for it all drives insane.

You packed up your world . . . gave it all up

And your heavens decent has left this hole in front of me
I couldn’t find much . . . yeah I wish I had more to soothe your hurts

Feeling up on the rafters above me, in case you hid a key
Blow a kiss to the window inside . . . to the down side, where you stare at me
It may not have been that bad, but I’m feeling for you

For what it’s all worth . . . i aint never had no gun
I’ve not even a foe of such, that I’d ever need to
But for you my love . . . I’d take ‘em all out . . . if you’ll help me down

But please don’t you shun me, cause I won’t heed
I’m stubborn with demands as can be
I’ll cut another way to inside, and if nothing else drag you out with me
I aint never played bad . . . I’m just thinking of you
And don’t that mean anything to thee from where you are?
Am I where you want to be?

But you won’t see me leave for anything till this is over
Your world’s still singing softly with me
No you won’t see me leave for anything till this is over
Your world’s still singing softly with me . . . for you to come out.

What worth is all that I’ve seen?

I’ve had it good, and I know I’m still young
And there’s many not blessed as me
Free to dream . . . free to be
So I’ve seen nothing of what some have seen
For as sure as I’m singing this song

There be warring man, and dying man

I’d rather not talk of belief
I try to take things as they come
And I aint earnt no right to preach
But I think I’d choose love over guns
Over money . . . over winning
For as sure as I’m singing this song

There be warring man, and dying man

But what to do when everyone speaks their mind at one time
On race, religion and peace
The dollar’s down . . . The sea levels rise
Now someone’s gone and lost all the money we made blackening the sky
We’ve got love dealt with guns
And priests on the run
And people with scowls as their greetings
I might not know much of this world, but at the moment its meaning defeats me

Give me love . . . just give me love

I sit here and ponder a while
Lap up the smiles as they come
Have a joke at this cloning called “style”, and the “heard it before” number 1
But while it’s funny, I know somewhere
As sure as I’m singing this song

There be warring man, and dying man

But what to do when everyone seems to be pushing their way at one time
For these things that they need?
Plastic toys . . . just sore to the eyes
They’ll be landfill in weeks
But all that matters is that somebody buys
We’ve got the world out on credit
Before they’ve got it . . . they’ve bet it
Some forget that there’s people need feeding
Now I might not know much of this world, but at the moment its meaning defeats me

Give me love . . . just give me love

And what I mean as being love is not just hot pink, nasty lusting
Or even “I’m yours, and You’re mine” love
But just, “I’ll never let you suffer!”
Cause oh my sister, I’ll be with you
Got your back if you need it brother
See, I don’t know you man, but I can help some before I go . . .

In this world of bitter sweet
There lived a selfish soul divine
They called him man . . . but man grew week
The more empowered he became in time

But amidst all the rubble . . . the running makeup and stubble
There’s hearts amongst man to believe in
And while all this momentum . . . yeah it’s gonna take some slowing
I think we’re far too young yet to be leaving

So oh my sister, I’ll be with you
Got your back if you need it brother
There aint no lesson that’s not worth knowing
There aint no journey not worth growing for

Oh my sister, I’ll be with you
Got your back if you need it brother
See, I don’t know you man, but I can help some before I go . . .

Give me love . . . just give me love

Well I’m searching for something this evening

Though I find less the more that I try
What I’ve waited for, I could’ve already found
Before what it is does arrive

So I’ll think not of what may tomorrow
Decide on my fat till the end
Just another day to sing of the joy I’ve found
When I sing with my friends

My words only come now in pictures
So excuse me if I sit quiet and dream
Of what a magic world it would be
If we all just found we could say as we mean

Then a tune came and graced me this morning
From the songbird who sang in her tree
She was too high to see
But her tune, as it fell knew it would fly home with me

What a luck dream I fell into
and I’ll always be grateful to you

The Wilde man said we’re all in the gutter
Though like him I’ve my sights on the stars
In this crazy world I’ll fall and I’ll float
But I’ll always be fine with my part

Like a dream in the hearts of fools she comes

And the stars in the night give her way
Cause hers is a shining love, just like the earth she’s from
She’s a light in my day

Like a song on the whistling wind she comes
And the sounds of man fade away
Cause hers is a soothing love, just like the earth she’s from
Yeah, she sings in my day

Heaven got nobody like you
Heaven got nobody like you . . . you
Heaven got nobody like you
And I can’t look away

Like a wave on the opal sea she comes
And caresses the sand where I lay
Cause hers is a healing love, just like the earth she’s from
Yeah she kisses my day

Heaven got nobody like you
Heaven got nobody like you . . . you
Heaven got nobody like you

And I can’t help but praise the earth she’s from
Like a dream in the hearts of all she loves
Like a song on the whistling wind she comes . . . in love

Heaven got nobody like you
Heaven got nobody like you . . . you
Heaven got nobody like you
And I can’t look away

Watching the waves roll in to cast their hands in faith upon these shores

Hope’s reflected off the water from the gathering tribes above . . . romancing change

For the tides, they are slowly turning
And things aint half as bad as they once seemed
As we dance out from the gloom to our cosmic ballroom
Surrounded by distant light . . . who could ever stay inside?

The spirit drums echo from the chambers
Lifting me high above

There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise

So rise from your sleep, cause it’s not over
The moon is full in our hearts tonight
And under a cloudless sky, we’ll all wonder
Like water in the sea we’ll rise

But elsewhere man is wasting his time being angry
Elsewhere man is losing faith
But while the shadows threaten, our burning hearts will always keep them at bay
So fear not as we play

For the spirit drums echo from the chambers
Lifting me high above

There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise

There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise

I’m walking easy home . . . It won’t come again

But I’m walking easy home . . .

It won’t come out easy . . . but easily go
No it won’t come out easy . . . but easily go

In the breath of the morning I heard it all
But the breath of the morning soon will be gone

Still I’m walking easy home . . . It won’t come again
But I’m walking easy home

In the nest of the eagle I saw a song
And I saw the music feeding the young

And I saw the music changing it all
But I know the music soon will be gone

Still I’m walking easy home . . . It won’t come again
But I’m walking easy home . . . The death of a friend
Still I’m walking easy home . . .

Still I’m walking easy home . . . It won’t come again
But I’m walking easy home . . . The death of a friend
Still I’m walking easy home . . .

Song departing . . .

What I feel is a layman’s attempt to express the beauty and sorrow of the unattainable. Despite its shortcomings though, this song still resonates with those visions within me.
