(8th disc: Presence)
It was an April morning When they told us we should go. And as I turned to you you smiled at me How could we say no? Whoa the fun to have, To live the dreams we've always had. Whoa the songs to sing, When we at last return again. We swept New York a glancing kiss, To those who claim they know. Under the streets the steam and hiss, The devil's in his hold. Whoa to sail away, Sandy lands and holidays. Whoa to touch the dream, Eyes inside have never seen yeah. And to the sun the south the north, Flocks of birds have flown. The shackles of commitment fell, In pieces on the ground. Whoa to ride the wind, To tread the air above the din. Whoa to laugh aloud, Dancing eyes above the crowd yeah. Seek a man whose pointing hand, A giant step unfolds. Guide us from the curving path, That churns up into stone. If one bell should ring, In celebration for a king. So fast the heart should beat, As proud for him [?he can't be beat?] yeah. Days went by when you and I, Bathed in eternal summer's glow. It's far away and distant, A mutual time to grow. Whoa the sweet refrain, Soothes the soul and calms the pain. Oh I'll here remain, Sleeping now to rise again. Wandering and wandering, One place to rest the search. Where the mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the Earth. Where the mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth. From the earth. I'm gonna reign, gonna reign, gonna reign. I'm gonna reign, gonna reign, gonna reign. Where the mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth.For Your Life

Impossible to go lower, The next stop's on the ground, Oh, low on the ground. You want to know is it quite over, To fame and tears and losing hair. And I said didn't mean to, Did not [?mean to profit?]. If you can plan you are a brave man. Do you wanna? Do you wanna do it? Do it when you wanna. Do you wanna? Do you wanna do it?

I was burned in the heat of the moment, No, it could've been the heat of the day. When I learned how my time had been wasted, Dear fellows I turned away. Now I've got friends who will give me the shoulder, When I should happen to fall. The timing is right, now I'm older. I've got friends who will give in before I fall. Corner of bleaker and nowhere noway, In the land of not quite day. A shiver runs down my backbone, Face in the mirror turns grey. So I looked around for a hitch from a raindeer, Said you oughtta find him out in the day. I turned around to look for the snowman, To my surprise he'd melted away yeah. The moon and the stars fill the order, As the tide tends to ebb and sway. The sun in my soul's sinking lower, While the hope in my hands turns to clay. I don't ask that my feet fall on clover, I don't roam at opportunity's door. Why don't you ask my advice, take it slower, Let your story will be your finest reward. Lost on the path to attainment, Search in the eyes of the wise. When I bled from the heart of the matter, I started bleeding without a disguise. Now everything's finally happened, Now and then you've got to take time to pause. [????] down on the ground and you're messing with [?????], If you land in a boat without oars. Hey babe, hey babe, hey babe, I lost my way. Hey babe, hey babe, I really, really did now. Hey babe, hey babe, I don't know where I'm gonna find it. Hey babe, hey babe, Do you wanna know, Do you really really wanna help me yeah? Let me tell you now babe, Let me tell you, That is fells so good that it must be right. Now my babe, Let me tell you, That it feels so good that it must be right. Now my babe, Let me tell you, If it feels so good.Tea For One
How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into day. Oh twenty-four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into day. When a minute seems like a lifetime, Ooh baby when I feel this way. Sittin lookin at the clock, Oh time moves so slow. I've been watchin for the hands to move, Until I just can't look no more. How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes slip into day. A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way. To sing a song for you, I recall you used to say. Oh baby this one's for me to you, Which in the end is you anyway. How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes slip into day. A minute seems like a lifetime, Oh baby when I feel this way. There was a time that I stood tall, In the eyes of other men. But by my own choice I left you, And now I can't get back again. How come twenty four hours, Sometimes slip into day. Well well well, A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way. A minute seems like a lifetime, Oh baby when I feel this way. I feel this way.
