The Howling Ghosts Reappear

The lights fade away by night

The howling ghosts reappear

They are searching for me everywhere

But I have always been right here

They want to consume me

I do not mind giving in

There is not more evil in them

Than there is within

And when the feast is delivered

And the beasts are satisfied

I’ll know you could have rescued me

If only I would have cried

Throw Some Light

Throw some light upon this tale

And then upon my way

Would you help me burn the trail

As I step into the day?

And then throw some light up yonder

I cannot see too far

Half the night I sit up and wonder

I do not know who you are

Throw some light in my mind

And let me fall asleep

Let me leave everything behind

I cannot lie awake and weep

Pauper’s God

To whom do I owe my worship?

To God who doesn’t have time

To the law that calls it a crime

Or to the man who just threw me a dime?

I Am Not Your Only Friend

If you need help, you can count on me

If you’re in trouble, call out to me

But there is one thing you must understand

I am not your only friend

You’ve got eyes to see and ears to hear

And a brave heart to fight all fears

And hands to write and legs to stand

I am not your only friend

You may have been down. You may have been beaten

And even love may have been forsaken

There is something special that He has planned

I am not your only friend

I Am Awake Now

I am awake now

Hoping to hear your voice to ease my troubled mind and set the wars in my head to peace

I lay down

Close my eyes and believe that I may never be the same as I miss you and your every little piece

I don’t understand

If the stars have planned

To get us together somehow

I am awake now

I am awake now

Are you awake in your bed and thinking as I am and wishing that there would be a light to show us the way

To smoother grounds?

Time cheats us every moment as I pray and hope and sing and watch the night turn into day

Leave the old track

And never look back

Forget everything somehow

I am awake now

I am awake now

And my heart would never let my soul sleep again with your face in the depths of my mind

Or even allow

The shadow of darkness to linger in my head with the traces of my steps washed and left behind

All your fears

Shall forever disappear

If you believe in my vow

I am awake now

Sleeping On The Pavements

Sleeping on the pavements

Tall buildings is what I see

Wondering under the open sky

How wonderful life could be

But I also know that somewhere

Someone is staring down at me

Wondering what it would be like

To be careless, young and free

So Happy A Heart That Knows No Love

So happy a heart that knows no love

No beat inscribed with a name

Touch it with bare hands or with a glove

The cold heart shall feel the same

So happy a heart that knows no love

It won’t bleed for anyone

Except for someone who lives high up above

When all is said and done
