Franklin's Tower
In another times forgotten space
Your eyes looked from your mother's face
Wallflower seed on the sand and stone
May the four winds blow you safely home.

Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew

I'll tell you where the four winds dwell
In franklin's tower there hangs a bell
It can ring, turn night to day
It can ring like fire when you loose your way.

Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew

God save the child that rings that bell
It may have one good ring, baby, you can't tell
One watch by night, one watch by day
If you get confused listen to the music play.

(instrumental)

Some come to laugh their past away
Some come to make it just one more day
Whichever way your pleasure tends
If you plant ice you're gonna harvest the wind.

Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew

In franklin's tower the four winds sleep
Like four lean hounds the lighthouse keep
Wildflower seed on the sand and wind
May the four winds blow you home again.

Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew
You'd better roll away the dew

Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew
Roll away the dew
You'd better roll away the dew - roll away.back to top
The Music Never Stopped
There's mosquitoes on the river fish are rising up like birds
It's been hot for seven weeks now,
Too hot to even speak now, did you hear what I just heard?

Say it might have been a fiddle or it could have been the wind
But there seems to be a beat now I can feel it my feet now
Listen here it comes again!

There's a band out on the highway, they're high steppin' into town
It's a rainbow full of sound, it's fireworks, calliopes and clowns
Everybody dancin' c'mon children, c'mon children, come on clap your hands.

Sun went down in honey and the moon came up in wine,
You know stars were spinnin' dizzy, lord
The band kept us too busy we forgot about the time.

They're a band beyond description, like jehovah's favorite choir
People joining hand in hand while the music played the band, lord
They're setting us on fire.

Crazy rooster crowin' midnight, balls of lightin' roll along
Old men sing about their dreams, women laugh and children scream
And the band keeps playin' on.

Keep on dancin' thru the daylight, greet the mornin' air with song
No ones's noticed, but the band's all pack and gone. was it ever there at all?
But they keep on dancin' c'mon children, c'mon children, come on clap your hands
Well the cool breeze came on tuesday, and the corn's a bumper crop
And the fields are full of dancin' full of singin' and romancin'
The music never stopped.back to top
Crazy Fingers
Your rain falls like crazy fingers
Peals of fragile thunder keeping time
Recall the days that still are to come some sing blue.
Hang your heart on laughing willow stray
Down to the water, deep sea of love
Beneath the sweet calm face of the sea swift undertow.

Life may be sweeter for this, I don't know,
See how it feels in the end.
May lady lullaby sing plainly for you soft, strong, sweet and true.
Cloud hands reaching from a rainbow tapping at the window, touch your hair
So swift and bright strange figures of light float in air.

Who can stop what must arrive now? something new is waiting to be born
Dark as the night you're still by my side shine inside .
Gone are the days we stopped to decide where we should go, we just ride.
Gone are the broken eyes we saw through in dreams gone, both dream and lie.

Life may be sweeter for this, I don't know,
Feels like it might be all right,
While lady lullaby sings plainly through you love still rings true.
Never could reach it, just slips away but I try.back to top
Blues for Allah/Sand Castles & Glass Camels/Unusual Occurrences in the
Arabian wind, the needle's eye is thin, the ships of state sail on mirage,
And drown in sand, out in no-man's land where allah does command.

What good is spilling blood? it will not grow a thing;
Taste eternity the swords sing: blues of allah in 'sh'allah.

They lie where they fall, there's nothing more to say,
The desert stars are bright tonight lets meet as friends,
The flower of islam, the fruit of abraham.

The thousand stories have come round to one again,
Arabian night, our gods pursue their fight,
What fatal flowers of darkness bloom from seeds of light.

Bird of paradise fly in white sky, blues for allah in 'sh'allah,
Let's see with our heart, these things our eyes have seen,
And know the truth must still lie somewhere in between.

Under eternity, under eternity, under eternity blue,
Bird of paradise fly in white sky, blues for allah in 'sh'allah.back to top
