Track Name: Heart On A Kite String
Heart On A Kite String

Don’t cry for me, my love
Though the hour is drawing near
Don’t cry for me, my love
The time has come for us to part, my dear
Don’t cry for me, my love
Our romance is at an end
I will gladly die for you, my darling
For I know I will rise again

My heart on a kite string
Heart on a kite string
Heart on a kite string
I’m flying
Flying away

You crowned me king
Every time you called my name
You crowned me king
Darling, every time you closed your eyes and came
You crowned me king
And even though I’ve lost it all
There’s always one flag flying
So high above these castle walls

My heart on a kite string
Heart on a kite string
Heart on a kite string
I’m flying
Flying away

Underneath the seven veils of mystery
I have a pair of angel’s wings
But, what good are they to me?

I’m only flesh and blood
Like all the lovers gone before
I’m only flesh and blood
Love leads me to believe that I can be so much more
I’m only flesh and blood
I stand here in this gathering gloom
I will cast my silhouette
So clear against that brave, romantic moon

My heart on a kite string
Heart on a kite string
Heart on a kite string
I’m flying
Flying away
Track Name: Swallowing The Stars
Swallowing The Stars

Every time I think of you
I am reminded of this painting by Degas
Three dancers at the barre
They are standing in the shadows
Their bodies in repose
So beautiful and so completely unaware
Of just how beautiful they are

Every time I think of you
I am reminded of my heart in pirouette
The grand jete, the releve
The night we met
The moon fell into shadows
And all the planets
Were distracted from their course
I believe they are distracted yet
Oh, my darling

Take me down
Take me deeper
I ain’t your back door man
I ain’t your midnight creeper
I wanna be your lover, baby

Hold me
Hollow out my heart until the river turns to light
Swallowing the stars
And then deliver them again tonight

Take me down
Take me deeper down

I ain’t your back door man
I ain’t your midnight creeper
I wanna be your lover, baby
Track Name: Dream Of Love
Dream Of Love

Once in a vision I believed in you
Love everlasting, love was ever true
I believed because I wanted to
Now I only dream of love

Down by the river in that shining hour
All of the beauty and all of the power
For one brief moment, darling
It was ours
Now I only dream of love

Late in the evening, if you say my name
And some of the beauty in it still remains
Then all of my endeavoring
Was not in vain
Now I only dream of love

Now I only dream of love
Track Name: More Than Flesh And Blood
More Than Flesh And Blood

Slowly, so slowly, ever so slowly
She unbuttons her overcoat
She tilts back her head as far as it will go
I kiss the delicate blue vein
Pulsing in her throat

Baby, what are you waiting for?
Slip out of your evening dress
Take off that velvet choker
Let down your long, black hair
Take me where the music plays
And the candles flicker
Take me where my heart beats quicker
Than my heart has ever beaten before

More than flesh and blood
More, if you believe
More than flesh and blood
More
Two lovers can rise
Rise above
Rise
Rise above

In your sweat, I taste my body
In your eyes, I see my face
In your voice, I hear my music
In your vision of me
I can find a path to grace
To a place

That’s more than flesh and blood
More, if you believe
More than flesh and blood
More
Two lovers can rise
Rise above
Rise
Rise above

Can you hear it?
Sounds like a song the angels sing
Listen
Is it the sound of our breathing
Or the beating of our wings?

Meet me tonight on the steps of the temple
Come hither with a vengeance, darling
Come to me
We’ll go down alone into the vault of inspiration
But we’ll come out together
Baby, you’ll see
And I will pray for you
And you will pray for me

More
More than flesh and blood
More
More than flesh and blood
Track Name: Rise Up Singing
Rise Up Singing

Fall into my arms
I have no desire to make you mine
No more arrows in your heart
Just my fingertips along your jawline

Fall away from me
Before I even know to catch my breath
It all just slips away
There is no beauty without death

And every sleeping flower holds the promise of the spring
And every precious hour blooms, then fades beyond our reckoning
I am bleeding faith
My heart is on the wing
I lay down dying
But I will rise up singing

No more words for now
Sometime, someplace, somehow
I will close my eyes and smile

Fall into the sky
Everything I am will evanesce
Is there a love that never dies?
I don’t know why
but I would answer
Yes

I lay down sighing
I lay down crying
I lay down dying
But I will rise up singing
Track Name: On This Side Of Paradise
On This Side Of Paradise

Leave me to my own device
And I will build the temple twice
Love will be my Jesus Christ
And death will be my Judas

No one can see know the shape I’m in
Underneath this bone and skin
There is darkness, there is sin
And there is resurrection

On this side of paradise
Forsake me never
And wash me in the blood
On this side of paradise
I will give you all my love

Down here at the river’s end
I feel your presence strong again
Love, you were my first amen
And my last hallelujah

On this side of paradise
Forsake me never
And wash me in the blood
On this side of paradise
I will give you all my love

There ain’t no heaven, baby
There ain’t no kingdom come
There are not two sides, baby
There’s only one

You and I could take a vow
As fragile as the slender bough
That’s holding up the here and now
That we could stay together
But everything that’s precious, dear
We take it off and leave it here
To fade and then to disappear
So kiss me like you mean it

On this side of paradise
Forsake me never
And wash me in the blood
On this side of paradise
I will give you all my love

Leave me to my own device
And I will build the temple twice
Love will be my Jesus Christ
And death will be my Judas
Track Name: Love Like A Halo
Love Like A Halo

Let’s use our imagination
Predict the future of our love affair
I see you standing waist deep in the water
But that’s not me beside you there
Me, I’m just the moonlight in your hair

It’s not a matter of right or wrong
It’s not a question of fidelity
Hearts have reasons of their own
And life’s no line from A to B

Your love like a halo
Love like a halo
I want to be
Your love like a halo

On the night we said goodbye
We looked up into the summer sky
And you said, "Oh, how I wish you were the one”
I said, "I don’t want to be the wish
I want to be the star you wish upon”

Love like a halo
Your love like a halo
I want to be
Your love like a halo

I want to be your wet dream
I don’t want to be the father of your child
Why should I be the voice of reason
When I can be the call of the wild?

And when your heart is broken
I know my heart will break a little too
And when you find someone to love
I’ll care for him
‘Cause I care about you

Let’s use our imagination
Predict the future of our love affair
I see you standing waist deep in the water
But that’s not me beside you there
Me, I’m just the moonlight in your hair

Your love like a halo
