From the Rooftops
See what there is to see
The view from the rooftops is the same
It seems there's no end
And the lights below burn cold

Thoughts of the past recede
They fade into history, and now the rain begins
Somehow everything seems right
Colors flood into the night
And eyes open then
There's no room for trying
Forget what was known
There's no use in hiding
From shadows unknown

No wall's ever lasted
Not brick, steel or stone
No thing lasts forever
Except the unknown

There's nothing that time can't end
How long can darkness live in the empty spaces
Until lights collapse and time misplaces
(All good things will have their end
How long till this time is over then)

How long till stars have faded and leave their traces
Before we collapse and time erases
(All good things will have their end
How long till this time is over then)

There's nothing that time can't end
There's no room for trying
Forget what was known
There's no use in hiding
From shadows unknown
There's nothing that time can't end
 
 
Seven Stars
Sometimes one photograph
Can make the whole world fade
You'll never be the same
You'll never be the same

While silent words were read
The miles still divide
You'll never be the same
You'll never be the same
Seven stars, destination
Calling out my name
Seven stars, destination
Take me far away

Then the slow walk we made
Turned the hours into days
I'll never be the same
I'll never be the same

What once was lost is found
And I cannot deny
I'll never be the same
I'll never be the same

Seven stars, destination
Calling out my name
Seven stars, destination
Take me far away

Yesterday, I could never see
A future far beyond, forever
I would stay if you wanted me
I know where I belong, forever

So now face the day, make the change
When the story ends it now begins forever
And I've felt the flame, seen the light
Of your seven stars that burn at night, forever

Seven stars, destination
Calling out my name
Seven stars, destination
Take me far away
 
 
SOS
We wait for days
The hours can't replace
That moment of walking away

There's none to blame
But buildings still remain
Their empty halls fading away
And now I
I can feel the rain
Falling on me
I can see the waters rising
Undermining me

I can feel the rain
Wash over me
Can the places and the faces
In the flood be saved

Now the darkness fades
And thoughts fall in to place
Let the flood take away
The pain of yesterday

Sink or swim
Sink or swim
So now I

I can feel the rain
Falling on me
I can see the flood is rising
Undermining me

I can feel the rain
Wash over me
Can the places and the faces
In the flood be saved
 
 
The Light And Shade of Things
You confess a lot of things
But you confess alone
The absence of a person brings
The burning question home

The nights are long, they turn to days
And sleep is not a friend
The voices though you hear them sing
Are only in your head
And you have not begun to fight
It slowly takes a toll
The burden of the little thing
Will never make you whole

I understand that feeling of dread, you're used to it
And those empty promises are just the same
When our time had come to end, it's over then
It's over then, it's over

The light and shade of things
The light you held is gone
And although people change
I know it can't be far

The light and shade of things
And I can't understand
How one is more important
Than the other

You're nowhere now, you're nowhere now
I know that it's hard to find
A heart that's there inside
It's hard to find your heart now

Forget falling down, forget all that you've been
It's time to face those broken promises
Oh, burn the past, this thing has to end
I wish that it felt strange that you feel nothing

The light and shade of things
The light you held is gone
And although people change
I know it can't be far

The light and shade of things
And I can't understand
How one is more important
Than the other

You're nowhere now, you're nowhere now
I know that it's hard to find
A heart that's there inside
It's hard to find your heart now

Some roads are empty
Some roads just go on
And though you may walk alone, my friend
I know it won't be long

It's not over, not over yet
I know you can remember when
You gave away you heart in your hand
It's not over then, it's not over

I know, your heart is there
It's there inside
 
 
White Flag
You've looked through eyes
Under darkened skies
Your world was standing still

No one's going to take your soul away
It's all your own
But innocence was gone, it's gone
No surrender, don't give up
Never carry that white flag
No surrender, now get up
Rise and bury your white flag

In the days that followed you
A new heart now is born
You'll never be alone

No surrender, don't give up
Never carry that white flag
No surrender, now get up
Rise and bury your white flag

And as days pass along
Know you've done no wrong
Few know sorrow as you did
You've made it, you've made it

As life dims and fades away
Like shadows in vain
And when all light is gone
I'll be there, waiting

The echoes there
Were more than most could bare
Yet no regrets at all

No one's going to take your soul away
It's all your own
But innocence was gone

No surrender, don't give up
Never carry that white flag
No surrender, now get up
Rise and bury your white flag
 
 
Like Stars Our Eyes Have Seen
See the dark road that's ahead
Lit by memories you knew
Now the ghosts begin to follow
Let it all come back to you

Chase that moment
Like stars our eyes have seen
They slip away, just through your fingers
Chase that moment
The forgotten become known
Once again, their shadows linger

Remember November in Turin
And streets that said goodbye
Remember all those words that now haunt
The places that you've been

Some say the moon looks broken hearted
Alone in its orbit
Forget what they said when you departed
Those memories are your own

Chase that moment
Like stars our eyes have seen
They slip away, just through your fingers

Chase that moment
The forgotten become known
Once again, their shadows linger

Now the dark road lies in ruin
And the dawn becomes your friend
Stand in silence now we all know
That every road comes to an end

Chase that moment
Like stars our eyes have seen
They slip away, just through your fingers

Chase that moment
The forgotten become known
Once again, their shadows linger
 
 
The Ghosts of Home
Where I come from, no one's home
Twisted branches overgrown
Skin deep roots over broken bone
Dust and glass and the ghosts of home

Knock at the door, no one's home
Empty rooms and shadows flown
Down these halls fading memories roam
Hand and hand with the ghosts of home
Another new horizon
Familiar scene of childhood dislocation
Fingers traced the colored lines
Another road, another destination

You said goodbye to empty rooms
And farewell to the walls and windows
Waved to no one in particular
As the lights went out and the doors behind you closed

Home again, home again

Stranger in a strange land
You walk the halls nervous and unseen
Keep your head down don't raise your hand
Alone in the crowd, a ghost in the machine

Home again, home again

Half remembered neighborhoods
Twisted branches in dying woods
Broken bones and childhoods
Broken homes in lost boyhoods

Summer wars in the woods
Fleeting blood brotherhoods
Hoped to run but never stood
Wished to stay but never could

What did you hope to find
Home again, what could you find?
In doorways and window panes, in broken glass and faded frames

Can clocks turn back, the years unwind
Are you still hiding there now
A ghost, trapped behind those walls?

So goodbye again to empty rooms
And farewell to walls and windows
Print them once more in your memory
As the lights recede and the road behind you grows

Home again, home again
 
 
Theories of Flight
(Instrumental)
 
 
Firefly
There, in the silence of the night
I see you shine
Drifting down to me, drift down to me
Is this how it's supposed to be?

Will you stay, will you go?
Again, this time, how far?
Then you take, and you're gone
No longer need to wait here anymore

Fly, far away
I won't regret at all
Not asking you to stay
I can't make you understand
As I close my empty hand

And as I stand here
Watching stars go shooting by
A thought comes to me, it comes to me
This is how it's supposed to be

Fly, far away
I won't regret at all
Not asking you to stay
I can't make you understand
As I close my empty hand

And as night turns to day
Alone now I walk away
And as time changes
Your light fades into the gray

Will you stay, will you go?
Again, this time, how far?
Then you take, and you're gone
No longer need to wait here anymore

Fly, far away
I won't regret at all
Not asking you to stay
I can't make you understand
As I close my empty hand
 
 
Seven Stars
Sometimes one photograph
Can make the whole world fade
You'll never be the same
You'll never be the same

While silent words were read
The miles still divide
You'll never be the same
You'll never be the same
Seven stars, destination
Calling out my name
Seven stars, destination
Take me far away

Then the slow walk we made
Turned the hours into days
I'll never be the same
I'll never be the same

What once was lost is found
And I cannot deny
I'll never be the same
I'll never be the same

Seven stars, destination
Calling out my name
Seven stars, destination
Take me far away

Yesterday, I could never see
A future far beyond, forever
I would stay if you wanted me
I know where I belong, forever

So now face the day, make the change
When the story ends it now begins forever
And I've felt the flame, seen the light
Of your seven stars that burn at night, forever

Seven stars, destination
Calling out my name
Seven stars, destination
Take me far away
 
 
Another Perfect Day
You tell me you love me
And I wonder why
The sun is overhead
But I can't see past the clouds in my eye
You show me what is real
And I just pretend
Another perfect day
And I wonder how it all will end

Another perfect day
And I will hide away
From all the sights and sounds
Another perfect day
And I will walk away
From all the light that surrounds

Shadows embrace this room
As I draw the shades tight
Close the curtains, shut out the day
Shut out the light

Another perfect day
And I will hide away
From all the sights and sounds
Another perfect day
And I will walk away
From all the light that surrounds

Lying awake again
Restless in this bed
Summer night whispers soft
But I can't sleep through the noise in my head
Soon the sun is rising
And I just descend
Another perfect day
And I wonder when it all will end

Another perfect day
And I will hide away
From all the sights and sounds
Another perfect day
And I will walk away
From all the light that surrounds

Another perfect day
And I will hide away
From all the sights and sounds
Another perfect day
And I will walk away
From all the light that surrounds
 
 
Pray Your Gods
(by Toad the Wet Sprocket.)
I will give the secrets you request
And you will be the one to sacrifice
So lay your love arms across my breast
And sing the poems, free the butterflies

Pray your gods who ask you for your blood
For they are strong and angry jealous ones
Or lay upon my altar now your love
I fear my time is short
There are armies moving close
Be quick, my love

I feel my body weakened by the years
As people turn to gods of cruel design
Is it that they fear the pain of death
Or could it be they fear the joy of life

Pray your gods who rule you by your fear
For they are quick and ruthless punishers
Or lay upon my altar now your love
I fear my time is short
There are armies moving on
Be quick, my love
 
 
Adela
(by Joaquin Rodrigo.)
Una muchacha guapa,
llamada Adela, llamada Adela,
Los amores de Juan
la lleva enferma, y ella sabía,
Que su amiga Dolores lo entretenía.

El tiempo iba pasando,
Y la pobre Adela, y la pobre Adela,
Más blanca se ponía
Y más enferma; y ella sabía
Que de sus amores se moriría.
 
 
Rain
(by Uriah Heep.)
It's raining outside
But that's not unusual
But the way that I'm feeling
Is becoming usual
I guess you could say
The clouds are moving away
Away from your days
And into mine

Now it's raining inside
It's kind of a shame
And it's getting to me
A happy man
Why should you want to
Waste all my time
The world is yours
But I am mine

Rain, rain, rain in my tears
Measuring carefully my years
Shame, shame, shame in my mind
See what you've done to my life

See what you've done to my life
