WILD CUPIDS
CD2#1

Do ya think i can be the one,
who can wait till fireworks come?
Do ya think we can have some fun,
get back where we begun.

Do ya think it'll be all right?
Do ya think it'll be tonight?
Do ya really want to let it go?
Find out what we both know.

Am i really the lucky one?
Be there when ya kingdom come.
We can sizzle till we're hot,
give it everything we got.

Can i hold ya close to me?
Feel your heart beat tenderly,
comin' in on Nirvana,
Kama Sutra, Shangri-la!

Wild cupids up above,
firin' arrows a'love,
fiery passion we both feel,
deep inside what a thrill.

Will we ever be the same?
Will we ever feel ashamed?
Or will love's memory,
carry us eternally!


THINK
CD2#2

Don't say ya think ya love me.
Don't say ya think ya know,
cause i been roun' the circles,
an' now i think i know.

That when a rocket hits ya,
or when the worlds collide,
no reason to be thinkin',
not much left to decide!

Don't say ya think ya love me.
Don't say ya think ya know,
'cause i been roun' the circles,
an' now i think i know.

When first i came to meet ya,
fail-safe flashed "red alert!"
Systems did disassemble,
an' then i went bezerk.

So when a comet grabs ya,
an' rips ya through the sky,
when earth becomes a snowflake,
no need to reason why.


THRU AN' THRU
CD2#3

Somethin' i can say about you,
you have loved me thru an' thru.
Don't you know true is true?
You have loved me thru an' thru,
thru an' thru!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah - thru an' thru.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah - thru an' thru!

We had no choice from the start,
what we felt deep in our hearts.
We knew no matter what came,
our lives, never the same, never the same!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah - thru an' thru.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah - thru an' thru!


ANOTHER SELF
CD2#4

We are just a shell,
of another self, of another self!
A self, whose priority,
is to live an' learn, yeah to let it be!
But the roles, we get cast in,
get kinda tight, wear kinda thin.
So we gaze, through the atmosphere,
an' in our hearts, in our hearts we hear -

"Rise!"


PLEASER
CD2#5

Hey, hey, hey little teaser,
you're a squeezer,
an' a pleaser!

Hey, hey, hey, little teaser,
you're a squeezer,
an' a pleaser!

Ya squeeze me all night long.
Ya make me feel so strong.
Ya squeeze me in the candlelight.
Ya make me feel all right!


HOLE IN ME
CD2#6

There's a hole in me an' it's ten miles wide.
There's a hole in me, can't be denied.
There's a hole in me that i can't hide.
There's a hole in me.

There's a hole in me, a circle so wide.
There's a hole in me, can't be denied.
There's a hole in me that i can't hide.
There's a hole in me.

There's a hole in me wherever i go.
There's a hole in me, don't want it to show.
There's a hole in me, why am i so slow?
There's a hole in me.

There's a hole in me, what else is new?
There's a hole in me, i'm falling through.
There's a hole in me, so what can i do?
There's a hole in me.

Here's to you lookin' through me lookin' at you.
Here's to me lookin' through you lookin' at me.
Here's to you lookin' through me lookin' at you.
Here's to me lookin' through you lookin' at me.

So glad i got to know you.
So glad, got to show you.
So glad, got to hold you.
So glad, finally told you!

There's a hole in me, i'm meltin' again.
There's a hole in me, when will i win?
There's a hole in me, so i fly with the wind.
There's a hole in me.


SUCH A DELITE
CD2#7

Baby how ya move me,
dancin' in the moonlight.
Baby how ya move me,
you are such a delite -
such a delite, such a delite.

Yeah you're a true beauty,
you're sultry tonight.
You're my favorite flavor,
you are such a delite -
such a delite, such a delite.

How i really miss ya,
how can you tell?
How i really miss ya,
only you know so well -
you know so well, you know so well.

i feel when ya touch me,
squeeze me through the night.
i feel when ya touch me,
you are such a delite -
such a delite, such a delite.


KANGAROO
CD2#8

Remember when you first told me,
"Love's what it's all about."
Then came those screechy slashes
an' the creepin' doubt.
You started out jus' like a princess
in a movie star magazine,
reignin' over our fantasy kingdom,
soverign an' supreme.
Amid the regal gold an' glitter,
my blindness came to view,
as i heard my momma say,
"Can't have your cake an' eat it too!"

"Cannot have that cake my son,
think that you can eat it too,
unless you're goin' out for lunch
with Captain Kangaroo.
An' the grass may always seem greener
on the other side of the fence,
you're a richer man by far
with simple common sense."


DON'T MATTER
CD2#9

Say what you will, really don't care.
Sharpen your daggers, ice up a stare.
You have dragged me down this bloody road before,
an' now you've gone so far, don't matter anymore.

You can allege, i broke a law.
You can tell everybody, i took a fall.
But when the smoke has cleared, sun will shine on me,
an' they're all gonna say, "lucky to be free!"

Dig in the closet, drag out the dirt.
Poison the arrows, to make sure they hurt.
Sooner or later eager ears will turn to stone,
an' then it's up to you, reap what you have sown!

Say what you will, really don't care.
Bring on your hired gun, with his gold underwear.
You have dragged me down this bloody road before,
an' now you've gone so far, don't matter anymore.


CONSPIRACY
CD2#10

Way out in the wilderness,
we have hidden from your traps.
We have healed our broken bones,
an' watched you strut upon your thrones.

You have crushed us with your tanks.
You have burned us with your banks.
You gave us guns to fight an' kill,
when all you wanted was a better deal.

You slashed our dreams of destiny.
Callin' us "conspiracy.".
Slashed our dreams of destiny.

We discern the micro world.
We can see the serpent curled.
We discern the micro mind,
thick as a brick deaf dumb an' blind.

We have faced your firing squads.
We have seen your TV gods,
mesmerize the population,
desperate for some consolation,
fallin' down in adoration,
shuttin' out the situation.

We know we know a brighter way.
We know we know the price we pay.
We know we know which way to turn.
We know we know that we can learn.
We know we know that we can fly.
Let's build some bridges thru the sky!


LANTERNS
CD2#11

Sometimes i'm feelin' that we're concealin'
our lanterns, deep in the dark.
As life's procession, jus' keeps us guessin',
"Are we victims or new age stars?"

We let our hearts go, we let our love flow,
from this ol' planet spinnin' roun'.
We have our purpose, our lives are not worthless,
the lantern, we touch in ourselves.

We feel the warmth there, we have our hearth there.
We spark our strength an' delight.
Gently we roll on, into the new dawn,
of our lanterns, naturally!


SPARROWS
CD2#12

Once while walkin' near the salty sea
a wee fellow pointed his finger at me.
He said, "Son are you livin' a life that's worthwhile,
are you filled with excitement,
does it show in your smile?"

"Do you rise every mornin' an' laugh with the sun,
figurin' new ways to make it all fun?
Is your life an adventure sparkin' your best,
or are you imprisoned along with the rest?"

"Make yourself happy whatever it takes,
rise to the challenge, make no mistake.
When you're at your peak an' you're feelin' fine,
others do best to be of like mind, be of like mind!"

"Glidin' sparrows fly like arrows,
breakin' free from gravity.
More than sparrows in a dream,
release the chains to which we cling."

"Go where you will an' live your life well,
remember the mystery that isn't for sale.
Reach for the stars with a gleam in your eye,
when caught in a rut, figure out why!"

"Do you rise every mornin' an' laugh with the sun,
figurin' new ways to make it all fun?
Is your life an adventure sparkin' your best,
or are you imprisoned along with the rest?"

"An' remember your twilight is comin',
so live each day as your last.
The wheel of fortune keeps turnin',
an' this phase in the cycle will pass."


RIVER
CD2#13

i see a river, a river that flows,
i see the times as they comes an' they goes.

i feel the river gently pull us along.
First we are here an' then we are gone.

Can't take much with us yet want guarantee,
need to be tied down yet want to break free.

The sky is our ceiling, the stars are our friends.
We wash in rain water an' dry in the wind.

The sun is our mother, our sister's the moon.
We have a good time from December till June.

From June till December we hold our heads high,
we turn to each other, we laugh an' we cry.

An' you may say, the river's a dream,
well it's the best damn dream, we ever seen!


FACE THE FIRE
CD2#14

If there's a problem, let's forget it.
If there's a tear, go ahead an' shed it.
Let's say "good-bye," so now we said it.
Look up ahead an' never regret it.

Let's face the fire that draws us nearer.
Let's face the fire that burns us clearer.
Let's drop the pain, the hurt an' sorrow.
Let's stand free an' face tomorrow.

Let's face the fire that draws us nearer.
Let's face the fire that burns us clearer.
Let's dream some dreams, "requiescat in pace."
So long for now, everything is okay.


HAUNTINGLY
CD2#15

Hauntingly is how ya feel to me.
Yesterday you were so near to me.
Suddenly you are so far away.
Hauntingly so what ya have to say?

Where oh where is your love so hot, love so hot.
Why oh why did your lovin' stop? lovin' stop.

Touched by darkness an' a goblin damned,
hauntingly is there a hidden plan?
Kiss me gently in the candle light,
whisper everything will be all right.

Where oh where is your love so hot, love so hot.
Why oh why did your lovin' stop? Lovin' stop.


LEAVES
CD2#16

The leaves were meltin' gently,
on the green an' brown below,
an' the silence softly nodded,
that i'd hate to see you go.

The little girl within you,
yes the velvet one so true,
knew all the thoughts i would think,
an' begin to share with you.

An' the thoughts will turn to teardrops,
as my dreamleaves taste the wind,
our yesterdays will linger,
an' perhaps our lives may blend.


SUNLIGHT
CD2#17

i will be on your side,
you can be on mine.
We can work together,
things can work out fine.
We can make these words count
by what we say an' do.
We can love each other
an' make our dreams come true.

When i feel you've hurt me,
i'll tell you why it's so.
Though i'd rather strike out,
it's better that you know.
When my turn is finished,
you can do the same.
Sharin' with me your feelings,
but never pushin' blame.

When alienation strikes us,
we recall our aim
to talk about our feelings,
an' not play childish games.
We'll keep some space between us
for fresh air an' sunlight,
so when time we're together,
we'll laugh in quiet delight.


EVER
CD2#18

Have ya ever known how much i really love you?
Have ya ever known how much i really care?
Have ya ever known how much i really need you?
Have ya ever known how much we really share?

Have ya ever seen the sunset in the summer?
Have ya ever felt the rain in wintertime?
Can ya remember what it's like to feel the longin',
for one whose inner heart says "You are fine"?

i'm sorry, i never meant to hurt you,
or for things to turn out this way.
Please remember how deeply i'm sorry,
more than words can ever say.
