Sunrise
Hensley

Sunrise, and the new day's breakin' through
The morning of another day without you
And as the hours roll by
No one's there to see me cry
Except the sunrise...
The sunrise and you

Tired eyes drift across the shore
Looking for love and nothing more
But as the sea rolls by
No one's there to see me cry
Except the sunrise...
The sunrise and you

Sunrise - bless my eyes
Catch my soul - make me whole again
Sunrise - new day, hear my song
I am tired of fightin' and foolin' around

But from now till who knows when
My sword will be my pen
And I'll love you for all of my time

Sunrise - bless my eyes
Catch my soul - make me whole again

Sunrise - bless my eyes
Catch my soul - make me whole again

Sunrise - bless my eyes
Catch my soul - make me whole again

Spider Woman
Box/Byron/Hensley/Thain

I had a spider woman and she was so good
She chained me in her web so tight
I lost the freedom of release that night
So I stayed right by her

I dreamt I saw a blind man who was singing a song
About a guy who couldn't take no more
And the meaning of the words he swore
Told me "Go find her"

She was a spider woman but she was so good to me
Spider woman but she was good to me

I told her about my vision
But she laughed in my face
So I told her "Go and walk in the street"
But by the time she got past my feet
I lost control

She was a spider woman but she was so good to me
Spider woman but she was good to meback to top
Blind Eyes
Hensley

Stranger than the sunrise
Darker than the night
Fiercer than a rainstorm
This is man's delight
This is man's delight

Weaker than a moment
And hot as any fire
Blinder than the blind eyes
This is man's desire
This is man's desire

I ran to a place in the open sea
Where I pledged my life to the sun
It was good for a while I could laugh I could smile
But when I woke up one day the sun had gone

I ran to a place in the open sea
Where I pledged my life to the sun
It was good for a while I could laugh I could smile
But when I woke up one day the sun had gone

So what of my meaning
What I am trying to say
What of my caution
I'm a man anywayback to top
Echoes In The Dark
Hensley

I have heard the echoes in the dark
Dim and distant voices of the past
And I've seen so far into the night
And lingered in the land of no light

Far beyond the shrouded hours of dawn
Through the mist of daybreak I was born
But the day was clouded still by night
Leaving me in the land of no light

Told I'd love to say hello to you
You might have to wait a while to say goodbye
For it must end as it began
And then start again

The day of darkness comes to every man
And lingers while he reaches out his hand
And he cannot know how it will end
Till he finds out if he has a friendback to top
Rain
Hensley

It's rainin' outside but that's not unusual
But the way that I'm feeling is becomin' usual
I guess you could say "The clouds are movin' away"
Away from your days and into mine

Now it's rainin' inside that's a kind of a shame
And it's gettin' 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
Measurin' carefully
My years
Shame shame shame
In my mind
See what you've done
To my life..

Rain rain rain
In my tears
Measurin' 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..back to top
Sweet Lorraine
Box/Byron/Thain

Would you like to take this magic potion with me
On a trip to a cosmic playground far beyond
She understands she's been before
It's in her hands to find the door

Sweet Lorraine, let the party carry on
You and I will swim the sea
Sweet Lorraine, let the party carry on
You and I can feel the breeze

There's no time, no wealth, only I surround you
The fortune of this guide is simply sincerity
She understands she's been before
It's in her hands to find the door

Sweet Lorraine, let the party carry on
You and I will swim the sea
Sweet Lorraine, let the party carry on
You and I can feel the breezeback to top
Tales
Hensley

We told our tales as we sat under morning's sleepy sky
With all the colours of the sunrise shinin' in our eyes
One then another with a story of yesterday's lives
All of a lover who has gone in a moment of strike

No thought of sleep ever dwells upon the wise man's mind
Some task or audience stealing ev'ry moment of his time
Thus we have learned to live while mortal men stand waitin' to die
How can we do what must be done in just one short life

And if you ask then you must know
If you still doubt you should be told
It was not we that made it so
It was by those who went before

And there you sit tomorrow's child
So full of love so full of life
But you must rise to meet the day
Lest you become another tale

And there you sit tomorrow's child
So full of love so full of life
But you must rise to meet the day
Lest you become another taleback to top
The Magician's Birthday
Hensley/Box/Kerslake

In the magic garden
Some were singing some were dancing
While the midnight moon shone brightly overhead
The stars so gaily glistened
And the sphinx in silence listened
To the magician's tale of lives that he had led

Let the bells of freedom ring
Songs of love to friday's king
Let's all go to the magician's birthday
It's in the forest but not so far away
Much to do and so much to say
While we listened to the orchid orchestra play

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday dear magician
Happy birthday to you

Then at the dead of midnight
As we watched the dancing fire light
The air grew cold and seemed to dull the flame
The fire died the music faded
Filled with fear of death we waited
For now we knew some evil was to blame...



-I challenge you I challenge you all
For all you own and all you know
And by all the powers of darkness
I will steal what is mine

Surrender now or face my spite
I grant you it may be Friday night
But did you know this day
Also numbers thirteen

First I give you fire
-I turn your fire into a sleepy stream
-Yes but now I give you nightmares
-But from your horror I'll create a dream
-You cannot fight me for I have the sword of hate
-But one thing you can't see: my answer is simply
an impenetrable fortress of love - love



The fear went as quickly as it came
The air was clear the fire burned again
The flames leapt the organ played
The swan sang to greet the day
And then we knew that
Love will find love will find love ...back to top
