Taking You Home

I had a good life before you came
I had my friends and my freedom
I had my name
Still there was sorrow and emptiness
‘Til you made me glad
Oh, in this love I found strength never knew I had

And this love (this love, this love) is like nothing I have ever known
(This love is like nothing I have ever known)
Take my hand, love I’m taking you home, taking you home
There were days, lonely days when the world wouldn’t throw me a crumb (no, no)
But I kept on believing that this day would come

And this love (this love, this love) is like nothing I have ever known
(This love is like nothing I have ever known) No, no baby
Take my hand, love I’m taking you home
I’m taking you home where we can be with the ones who really care
Home, where we can grow together, keep you in my heart forever

Oh, and this love (this love, this love, this love) is like nothing I have ever known
(This love is like nothing I have ever known) Oh no, no baby
Take my hand love, I’m taking you home
Oh, this love (this love, this love, this love) is like nothing I have ever known
(This love is like nothing I have ever known) No, no baby
Take my hand…taking you home, taking you home
Yes I am hmm, baby, hey baby
(Taking you home, hmm, taking you home)
Taking you home, baby (Taking you home) I’m taking you home

The heart of the matter

I got the call today I didn’t wanna hear,
But I knew that it would come,
An old true friend of ours was talkin’ on the phone,
She said you found someone,
And I thought of all the bad luck,
And the struggles we went through,
And how I lost me, and you lost you,
What are these voices outside love’s open door,
Make us throw off our contentment,
And beg for something more?

I’m learning to live without you now,
But I miss you sometimes,
The more I know, the less I understand,
All the things I thought I knew, I’m learning again,

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the heart of the matter,
But my will gets weak,
And my thoughts seem to scatter,
But I think it’s about forgiveness,
Forgiveness,
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore,

These times are so uncertain,
There’s a yearning undefined,
People filled with rage,
We all need a little tenderness,
How can love survive in such a graceless age?
The trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness,
They’re the very things we kill, I guess,
Pride and competition cannot fill these empty arms,
And the work I put between us,
You know it doesn’t keep me warm,

I’m learning to live without you now,
But I miss you, baby,
The more I know, the less I understand,
All the things I thought I figured out, I have to learn again,

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the heart of the matter,
But everything changes,
And my friends seem to scatter,
But I think it’s about forgiveness,
Forgiveness,
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore,

There are people in your life who’ve come and gone,
They let you down,
You know they hurt your pride,
You’d better put it all behind you, baby, ’cause life goes on,
You keep carryin’ that anger,
It’ll eat you inside, baby,

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the heart of the matter,
But my will gets weak,
And my thoughts seem to scatter,
But I think it’s about forgiveness,
Forgiveness,
Even if, even if you don’t love me,

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the heart of the matter,
Because the flesh will get weak,
And the ashes will scatter,
So I’m thinkin’ about forgiveness,
Forgiveness,
Even if, even if you don’t love me,
Forgiveness (hey),
Forgiveness (baby),
Forgiveness (oh),
Forgiveness (hey hey),
Forgiveness (oh),
Forgiveness,
Even if you don’t love me anymore,
Forgiveness (ooh),
Forgiveness (oh).

The damage is done

Is there a reason
For things that you say?
The way you’re treating me
All the games I won’t play
Well it’s too late, no longer one
Don’t want you, the damage is done

Will you miss me
When I leave you behind?
Will you tell your friends
I treated you unkind?
Well it’s over now, and I’m on the run
I don’t want you, the damage is done

There have been rumors
That my sense of humor is lacking in some ways
To me that’s no reason, it’s tantamount to treason
See what the judge has to say
You need to find someone half as blind
As I am to your games
And maybe you’ll find out what it’s all about
And it can drive you insane

Ooh the damage is done
And now I feel it’s too late
The damage is done
It’s over
Now I’m on the run
And baby you and I know
The damage is done

I feel it’s too late
The damage is done

Foreigner

The wind

Sometimes the winds blows our ships
Towards each other
Side by side sail our ships
Then the currents drift us apart

That’s how it goes
You see the other ship drift
Towards a far horizon and think:
When does the current shift?

Everything is full of surprises
Sometimes you understand
Sometimes you don’t
You can hope try walk forget or just stand

You can hope try walk forget or just stand
Or let go, see what comes at hand
You can hope try walk forget or just stand
Or let go, see what comes at hand

Computer

You don’t need to travel the stars
To reach a friend far away
Easy… train boat bike bus & cars
A lunar space ship is so much of today

So simple is to just close your eye
To see him standing in your inner eyelid
Through the heart you say not just hi
The flow of the heart essentializes it

Now we have a new eye, hand, a new mind
Now you find any friend anywhere
The computer screen is the place where
Emotion flows with words, kind or unkind

A computer is your eye & hand
It can be your mind
Your scope will expand
Yet the heart leaves computers behind

A computer is your eye & hand
It can be your mind
Your world will expand
Yet the heart leaves computers behind

Saturday Morning

Over the river floats a thin haze
A man fishing peaceful is his gaze
Trush and robin sing somewhere in the trees
From the shore sounds a group of geese

The first elderly shoppers appear
On Saturday morning it’s not the young we hear
The young sleep off Friday night
Their night of might

Let slow down the world on Saturday morning
The sun rises sheep are bleating every morning
Sleep or a run in the park on Saturday morning
The sun rises all the same every morning

@D

Feel the night

Let’s go out & feel the night
Love makes your face shine bright
Like fire flies over summergrass
Under the stars leaves the stress

Smell of night flowers soft air
The moonlight on your hair
Love is a mystery love is a promise
Try to grasp it and make it miss

The love that is let it last
Everything changed with you I’m at my best
The love that is let it last
Everything changed with you I’m at my best
