How we choose our sense of being
Take a little time out
Take a little faith in

How we dance our sense of rhythm
Take a little time out
Take a little Love in

Expect - Unexpected

Take a little time out
Take a little faith in

Take a little time nut
Take a little faith in

All in the forest of light
All in the forest of love

All in the forest of life
Standing tall the Shining Ones
Into the Forest of light
Standing still the gulden ones
Into the forest of love

All in the Forest, all in
the forest, all in
the Forest of Life

Expect - Unexpected
Believe - Unbelievable

Realize - Indescribable

How we choose our path to follow

Treestar glowing
Under the covers of Love
Under the covers of Love

(Anderson)
Rushing here and there, I'm told to slow down
Just relax, take your time, don't move so fast, so fast
Tempers in the air, I'm told to slow down, ease back
By the fire, feel free, feel free

People pushing by and why
I don't mind, take my time, there's no raace
Life is fine, life is fine
Come and take my hand and we'll be in a dream
Just relax, there's no rush, take your time
Take your time

CHORUS
Worry's on your mind, always try to find happiness
Looking everywhere, life is but a care
Love will come always to you

Rushing here and there, I'm told
To slow down, just relax, take your time, don't move so fast
Tempers in the air, I'm told to slow down
Ease back by the fire, feel free, feel free

CHORUS

People pushing by and why
I don't mind, take my time, there's no race
Life is fine, life is fine
Come and take my hand and we'll be in a dream

song list next song previous song Jon Anderson: EarthMotherEarth That Crazy Wind
(Jon Anderson)
Come on you crazy wind
go carry all your sweet devotion
Blow the treetops
Ride the hillside
on the mountains sing
emotion sing

Come on you crazy wind
Go dance and flow your soul emotion
Never resting 'til you blow your world's,
cleanliness, invention, intervention

Come blow your winds of raging rivers
blow the distant canyons
never touched by human contact

Come on you winds of travel
taking distances of pleasure
to the max, to the maximum

We've seen your hurricanes
smash through your windows of disaster
How in Hell the demon's anger
Set our minds in total disarray

The wind does not discriminate
It touches everyone alive
The peasant working on his knees
The billionaire with his disease

It will sail the Seven Oceans
It will sail the Future Mountains
It believes
It is sacred

Come on you wings of fire
Redefining all your life
Come on your clouds of heaven spent
Sent to show the Hand of God

You see it in the afternoon
before the Sun to set
we see it in the Blessed Morn
We know it's Heaven sent

Feel the winds of China
Feel the winds of Tibet
Feel the winds of Timbuktu
Feel the winds of Peru,
lxtapa, Maui, Fiji

(Jon Anderson/David Foster)
In the morning when you rise,
Do you open up your eyes, see what I see?
Do you see the same things ev'ry day?
Do you think of a way to start the day
Getting things in proportion?
Spread the news and help the world go 'round.
Have you heard of a time that will help us get it together again?
Have you heard of the word that will stop us going wrong?
Well, the time is near and the word you'll hear
When you get things in perspective.
Spread the news and help the word go round.

There's a time and the time is now and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the time is now.
There's a word and the word is love and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the word is love.

Have you heard of a time that will help get it together again?
Have you heard of the word that will stop us going wrong?
Well, the time is near and the word you'll hear
When you get things in perspective.
Spread the news and help the word go round.

There's a time and the time is now and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the time is now.
There's a word and the word is love and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the word is love.
There's a time and the time is now and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the time is now.
There's a word and the word is love and it's right for me,
It's right for me, and the word is love.
song list next song previous song Jon Anderson: EarthMotherEarth Time Has Come
(Jon Anderson)
Looked into the mirror
Much to my surprise
There in front of me
Right before my eyes
Sentinel Being
Luminous and gold
These the words he said:

"Everybody looking
Everybody see
Everybody waiting
To be free"

Time has come
Time to get ready
Time for Love

Looked into the future
Everything so clear
Everything so beautiful
Coming near

Oh  the magic
Oh  the love
Oh  the wonderful

Everybody looking
Everybody can see
Everybody waiting
To be free

Time has cone
Time to get ready
Time for love

I won't sing until I sing with you
I won't love again until I love with you
I won't dance until I dance with you
I won't live again until I live with you,
my love, my love, my love

She came into my life
Set my spirit free
Now I feel so good
You and me

Oh  the magic
Oh  the love
Oh  the wonderful

Everybody watching
Everybody can see
Everybody waiting
To be free

Time has come
Time to get ready
Time for Love

I won't sing until I sing with you
I won't love again until I love with you,
my love, my love, my love
song list next song previous song Jon Anderson: The Promise Ring Timing Of The Known
(Jon Anderson)
If only time had brought us here
A thousand days or more
A thousand Souls would come to life
And Dance on Every Shore
For All The World has come to see
The meeting of the heart 'n mind
Is all that humans need to do
To see the heavens begin...

So all I see is you were there
'n all I know the fire so strong
This timing of the ancient lore
This timing of the known

Now all we know transpired a while
While angels brought the power to bear
They specialize in credence form
To heal the broken hearts

How nature watches from afar
'n spells the truth out in the corn
Be careful of the deeds you sow
So surely shall ye reap

So all I see is you were there
'n all I know the fire so strong
The timing of the ancient lore
This timing of the known

If all the world we really knew
'n understood the truth to be
We'd far more want to dance 'n sing
The bringing o'er the light
At last our children stand in peace
The prophets say we live the news
Just once again forevermore
With nothing left to loose

So all I see is you were there
'n all I know the fire so strong
The timing of the ancient lore
This timing of the known

If only time had brought us here
A thousand days or more
A thousand Souls would come to life
And Dance on Every Shore
For All The World has come to see
The meeting of the heart 'n mind
Is all that humans need to do
To see the heavens begin...

So all I see is you were there
'n all I know the fire so strong
This timing of the ancient lore
This timing of the known

(Jon Anderson)
                      Hold come a day dream
                      Ask a flower to kneel
                    as you pray to the runner

                       Spurn all ye kindle
                  and cradle his sweet pleasure
                         as you just look
                 farther and farther beyond him,
                      beyond him, beyond him

                   Call for the giver, the taker
                            rejoicing
                         as you just look
                 farther and farther beyond him,
                      beyond him, beyond him

        Spurn all ye kindle and cradle his sweet pleasure

                            In it all
                        to the devil take
song list next song previous song Jon Anderson: In The City Of Angels Top Of The World (The Glass Bead Game)
(Anderson/Paich)
Ah, see we both sing
Get along
Some of us set this treaty
Because I know
Set it to really purify

See the more the reasoning
As the sars they sit at night
We can never really guess
Unless we ask like a mission

And it touches you
Like a measure do
It's a real life
And it gets us by

Some Gemini dold us of a reason
We had something of a catapult force
I'm steering out another vision

Top, very top
Top, very top
Top of the world, we'll see what it's like
Clearer

Just around the corner we heard it
Just around the boat should be there
It came alive so by the fire
For the very first time so heavy

First energy, reach first vision
First energy, caught in the light
First energy, bringing the night

I'm a river, I love you
Night
I'm a river, I love you

Watching
LIke a tiger mystic
Like a unicorn
Water
See the great whale
Skyward
Are you listening
Do shine

It's a gift you're reaching
Day to day you touch me
LIke a vision, we fly to the sky
For the very first time

First energy, reach first vision
First energy, caught in the light
First energy, reach first vision
First energy, bringing the night

I'm a river, I love you
Night
I'm a river, I love you
Night

I'm a river, I love you
I'm a river, I love you

Some Gemini told us of a reason
We had something of a catapult force
I'm steering out another vision

Top, very top
Top, very top
Top of the world, we'll see what it's like
Clearer

I'm a rhythm, I love you
I'm a rhythm, I love you
I'm a river, I love you
I'm a river, I love you
I'm a river, I love you

song list next song previous song Jon Anderson: The Promise Ring True Hands Of Fate
(Jon Anderson)
There'll be times in my day
when I think of the past
How we tend to survive all that comes
How the maker repeats
with the sun of each morn
'n the moon 'n the stars at night
Take a meadow of green
'n the gold of the corn
As the flowers decorate by each wall
And the birds sing away as tho'
nothing will change
Now that Eireland is Eireland once more

I have travelled so far
to the ends of the world
I have yet to feel all I can feel
Yet the maker redeems
a whole country each morn
Bringing light to the hearts of the dawn
Shall we sing to the grandmothers,
fathers long gone
Spread the wings of the
angels of faith
There's a time to be born,
'n to be born again
Now that Eireland is Eireland once more

Make the most of each hour,
make the most of each day
We are blessed to begin a new time
Make our forefathers glad
all was not so in vain
So replenish the land that was given
To your friends both be kind,
yes be gentle as lambs
And as clear as the stars, be as one
So may all of your dreams
come to live in your heart
And be seen as a sign of the times

So be true hands of fate
Let the children be free
Let the spirit of goodness prevail
We shall rise to the change
As we rise up every day
and survive all that comes our way

(Jon Anderson)
Lay down in the stars, my bonny lass
Lay down in my arms, we'll make it last
The senses aspire to this far greater time
As the rivers flow your heart will be mine

She changed my soul with her angel eyes
She gave her love to set me free
Like the waves of the ocean that come to the shore
She'd be loved by me forevermore

On the first of May all spring will arise
As the garlands of Eireland will be coming alive
'Tis the first day of wonder and the first day of light
I'm so glad we've arrived in a freedom so bright

So lay down in the heavens, my bonny lass
Lay down in my arms, we'll make it last
In the parting of old ways, we made our last stand
'Tis the first day of our future in this new land

She changed my soul with her angel eyes
She gave her love to set me free
Like the waves of the ocean that come to the shore
She'd be loved by me forevermore

We'll change our wisdom through your angel eyes
We have sown the seeds for our children's lives
For at last the aching has gone far away
Bring the future of Eireland to this new day
