Written In The Stars

Once written in the stars
A pathway set in stone
A candle in the night
To guide your way back home
Then somewhere in your memory
Calling from afar
It's daring you to see
What it is that's written in the stars…

You said that you would stay
And that you'd never leave
I gave you all I had
When I chose to believe
Love like magic
Casts a spell
Sometimes leaving scars
I guess it's just as well
Not to know what's written in the stars

Still written in the stars
And written in your eyes The prophecy fulfills The dream that never dies A shooting star lights up the night While the earth stands still And somehow we lose sight While following what's written in the stars…

I want to know what's written in the stars… Please tell me what's written in the stars…

I Still Remember I thought of you the other day How worlds of change led us astray Colors seem to fad to gray In the wake of yesterday…

You looked into my eyes You had me hypnotized And I still remember you

I had a dream of you and I A thousand stars lit up the sky I touched your hand and you were gone But memories of you live on…

You looked into my eyes You had me hypnotized And I still remember you Those moments spent together Promising forever And I still remember you

Do you ever think of me And get lost in the memory When you do, I hope you smile And hold that memory a while…

I Still Remember

I thought of you the other day
How worlds of change led us astray
Colors seem to fade to gray
In the wake of yesterday…
You looked into my eyes
You had me hypnotized
And I still remember you

I had a dream of you and I
A thousand stars lit up the sky
I touched your hand and you were gone
But memories of you live on…

You looked into my eyes
You had me hypnotized
And I still remember you
Those moments spent together
Promising forever
And I still remember you

Do you ever think of me
And get lost in the memory
When you do, I hope you smile
And hold that memory a while…

Home Again

I've been many places
I've traveled 'round the world
Always on the search for something new
But what does it matter
When all the roads I've crossed
Always seem to return to you…

Old familiar faces
Everyone you meet
Following the ways of the land
Cobblestones and lanterns
Lining every street
Calling me to come home again

Dancing in the moonlight
Singing in the rain
Oh, it's good to be back home again
Laughing in the sunlight
Running down the lane
Oh, it's good to be back home again

When you play with fire
Sometimes you get burned
It happens when you take a chance or two
But time is never wasted
When you've lived and learned
And it time it comes back to you…

And when I got weary
I'd sit a while and rest
Memories invading my mind
All the things I'd treasured
The ones I'd loved the best
Were the things that I'd left behind…

Crowning Of The King

Down in the village streets
The air is full of wonder
Fair smiles greet
The crowning of the king…
Come hither, gather round
A joyous time's upon us
The crowning of the king…

Fast away the olde
Time too quickly passes
Shine the light of new
For the crowing of the king…
Come forth those who wish
For change and change becoming
Welcome with every breath
The crowning of the king…

Sweet is the hour and sweeter still
The time we spend together
Celebrate the noble will
The crowing of the king…
To sing and dance and sing again
With honor and with splendour
All from far and near-
See the crowning of the king!

Step to the dance of hope
Of courtly wiles and pleasure
As the star of the morn
Shines brightly for the king…

Pray thee lift the veil
From those who came before us
Merriment will prevail
For the crowning of the king…

Sweet is the hour and sweeter still
The time we spend together
Celebrate the noble will
The crowning of the king…

To sing and dance and sing again
With honor and with splendour
All from far and near-
See the crowning of the king!
Jesters spin and play
The laughter sounds like music
What a perfect day
For the crowning of the king…

Here in the village streets
The air is full of wonder
Fair smiles greet the crowning of the king…
Come and see the crowning of the king!

Fires At Midnight

I stood out here once before
With my head held in my hands
For all that I had known of this place
I could never understand…
On the hills the fires burned at midnight
Superstition plagued the air
Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
The stars are out and magic is here…

I wished the seven sisters
Bring to me wisdom of the age
All that's locked within the book of secrets
I longed for the knowledge of the stage…

On the hills the fires burned at midnight
Superstition plagued the air
Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
Stars are out the magic is here
The stars are out the magic is here…

So, the sisters smiled to themselves
And they whispered as they shone
And it was from that very instant
I knew I would never be alone…

While on the hills
The fires burned at midnight
Superstition plagued the air
Sparks fly as the fires burned at midnight
Stars are out and magic is here
The stars are out and the magic is here…
Many stars were forgotten
Many faded and became ghosts
Still my sisters glittered down from heaven
Always there when I needed them most…

And on the hills the fires burned at midnight
Superstition plagued the air
Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
Stars are out and magic is here
The stars are out and magic is here…

I stood here once before
With my head in my hands
For all that I had known of this place
I could never understand

On the hills the fires burned at midnight
Superstition plagued the air
Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
Stars are out and magic is here
Stars are out and magic is here
Stars are out and magic is here
Stars are out and magic is here

Fayre Thee Well

Hanging Tree

There have been many tales
Tainted by truth twisted by time…

Some choose to forget
Yet it still
Weaves webs in their minds…

And it seems like she's been here forever
Her branches as black as the seas
She's been through it all
By the luck of the draw
She became the old hanging tree…

She asked for nothing
Except maybe
A little rain…
They used her strength
To help them steal lives away…
And she witnessed the sadness and the sorrow
To this day she still doesn't know why
And her heart broke
When they came with the rope
To declare her the old hanging tree…

Life stranger then fiction
Can make you want to cry
Roots could never stop her
From reaching for the sky…
Those years have all past
Lucky for us lucky for her…
Now, children play at her feet
And in her arms she cradles birds…
And it seems she's been here forever
These days are the best that she's seen
But somewhere in the back
Of her mind
Is the time
She was known as the old hanging tree…

Storm

A timeless and forgotten place,
The moon and sun endless chase
Each in quiet surrender
As the other reigns the sky…
The midnight hour begins to laugh
A summer evening's crazy
As the storm begins to rise…

Wild were the winds that came
In the thunder and the rain
Nothing ever could contain
The rising of the storm…

In the wings of ebony
Darkened waves fill the trees
Wild winds of warning
Echo through the air…

Follow the storm I've got to get out of here…
Follow the storm as you take to the sky…
Follow the storm now it's all so crystal clear,
Follow the storm as the storm begins to rise…
She seems to come from everywhere
Welcome to the dragons lair
Fingers running through your hair
She asks you out to play…

In all of nature's sorcery
The most bewitching entity
Hell can have no fury
Like the rising of the storm…

Mid Winter's Night

The bells are ringing
On Mid Winters Night
The moon sets all alone
And once again I try to sleep before morning light
Too soon the sun will come a-calling over the hills in our little town
Too soon the snow will start falling over the world without a sound
While in my room dreams are a-fleeting
I close my eyes one more time
All too quickly the dawn is breaking and I must leave the night behind.

All Because Of You

Is this happening? Is this fantasy?
Never did I believe
There could be such happiness
Feels like nothing on earth
Starting with one little kiss…
I could stay in this moment forever
I could reach every star in the sky
I could lose myself when I look
Into your eyes…

Is the happening? Is this fantasy?
All my dreams coming true…
…all because of you
I can't believe its true…
…all because of you….

You are everything I
Wanted for so many years…
Goodbye long, lonely nights
Sadness and thousands of tears

I could stay in this moment forever
I could reach every star in the sky
I could lose myself when I look
Into your eyes…

Is this happening? Is this fantasy?
All my dreams coming true…All because of you
I can't believe it's true…all because of you…

Waiting Just For You

They say that it's always darkest right before the dawn
They say that I must be strong just to carry on
But they don't know that I would wait my whole lifetime through Because you know, my love, that I'd be waiting just for you…

There you stood, amazing shining for the whole world to see
And I knew an angel had been sent to watch over me…

So I'll be waiting, hoping, dreaming, loving you
Because I know, my love, that you do love me too

Benzai-Ten

When the sun sets over cherry blossom skies
And the twilight fills the air
You can see the snow on the mountaintops
Through the veil of old Japan…
On an island lead by all the ancient ways
Just a million miles from here
And yet it seems like only yesterday
That her song rang out so clear…
Sister of the seas
Wrapped in silken robes
Waves are falling at her feet…
Play your haunted songs to charm the dragon king,
Winds are calling out your name…

And the times ran fast, further from that place
But somehow we are still here
You can hear her song calling on the waves
Through the veil of old Japan…

Sister of the seas
Wrapped in silken robes
Waves are falling at her feet…
Play your haunted songs to charm the dragon king,
Winds are calling out your name…

When the sun sets over cherry blossom skies
And the twilight fills the air
You can see the snow on the mountaintops
Through the veil of old Japan….
Through the veil of old Japan will appear our Benzai-ten...

Village On The Sand

I saw three ships a-sailing in
From across the sea
Strangers were welcome but for curiosity
But come they did
And when they did
Ready they did stand
And things would never be the same
In our village on the sand

When the ships pulled in to dock the villagers did hide
When trouble came it usually was brought upon the tide
When the pirates disembarked they were making plans
And from then on things were not the same
In our village on the sand

The smugglers came into our town
And many sought to run
I stood my ground bravely and came face to face with one
Time and travel on the seas weathered face and hand
He was different than others in
My village on the sand

He told me of the years he'd spent on the stormy seas
Then he spoke a poet's words of philosophy
And when he had to leave again he asked me for my hand
And I knew I'd never see again
My village on the sand

Again Someday

Now you're gone
We're left to carry on
Though the night seems twice as long
And here within my heart I don't feel very strong
But we will meet again

Now you're gone
We're left to carry on
In the wind I hear your song
With every passing hour
I'm feeling more alone
But we will meet again Someday…
