Lost and Found

(more information: My “Albumatross”)

I went on a journey
I was looking for myself
When I finally found myself, I found
I had only lost myself
When I went to find myself
So I became the person who I am —
That’s who I always was

I went on a journey
I was trying to lose myself
When I finally lost myself, I found
When we lose ourselves in others
That’s when we find ourselves

My friend went on a journey
And completely lost himself
So I went looking for my friend
And I found him when I lost myself
I found him, and I found myself!

When we lose ourselves in others
That’s when we find ourselves

Rising Sun

(more information: The Unfinished Album)

I could be your older brother
I could be your friend
I could be a new beginning
I could be the end

Am I a rising sun?
Or am I setting sun?

I could be your pruning hook
I could be your sword
I could be your humble servant
I could be your lord

Am I a rising sun?
Or am I a setting sun?

I could be a new beginning
I could be the end
I could be a burning sunset
It’s up to you, my friend

My Abode

(more information: When I Was Lonely, Guitar Tablature Editing on Linux)

The road is my abode
It will love me — it will kiss me
The road is my abode
It will hold me — hold me

I turned to you when I was lonely
And you sent me on my way —
Your way

The street is my retreat
And I go there when there’s nowhere else to go
And I know
I belong — I belong

I turned to you when I was lonely
And you sent me on my way —
Your way

And I don’t know which way I’m going
And I don’t know which way I’ve been
And I don’t know where you want me to be
But I know I’m far from home

I turned to you when I was lonely
And you sent me on my way
You said my way was your way
But your way —
Your way is my way home

Something Wrong

(more information: The Unfinished Album, Is There Something Wrong?)

I haven’t seen her for a while
I used to see her every day
And when I ask, “What has happened to her?”
I can’t get anyone to say

Is there something wrong with Alyson?
Or is there something wrong with me?

And I was troubled at her leaving
I thought that I had caused her shame
And the way that people wouldn’t speak about it …
I would have taken all the blame

Is there something wrong with Alyson?
Or is there something wrong with me?

Did you know that I loved her?

Standing on High

(more information: The Unfinished Album, Remastering in a Linux Home Studio: Salvaging “Standing on High”)

Standing here on High
Wishing that the rain would leave me dry
As it’s falling from the sky
And I wait …
And I hope I won’t be late

Standing on High

There’s a memory here
I can feel it near
Is it hope or is it fear?
Oh, no! We won’t give up this fight
We’ll make it through the night
And someday, whatever happens, it’s gonna be alright

Standing on High

Will you meet me here?
I’ll meet you here on High Street

Lullabye

U-Turn

(more information: U-Turn, It Becomes You)

I was lost on a lonely highway
Trying to find my place in the sun
And when I thought I’d found my destination
I found my journey had just begun

I wasn’t looking for adventure, oh no
I was just looking for a place to live my life
But I didn’t know which way was home anymore
I didn’t know which way was home

So I turned myself around
I did a U-turn on that highway
And I said to myself,
“Where are the mountains that I love?
Where’s the smell of rain in the desert?
And where are the people that I call my own?
Where are the people that I call my own?”
So I said to myself,

“I’m gonna find my way back home
I’m gonna find my way back home
I’m gonna find my way back home
I’m gonna find my way back home
Here I come!

“I’m gonna find those mountains that I love
I’m gonna find those people that I call my own
I’m gonna find my way back home”

If You Remember (What I Did Wrong)

(more information: What I Did Wrong)

It’s really forever, this life that we live
And if you remember, then I hope you forgive

You said it’s forever, but time proved you wrong
And if you remember, it didn’t take long

But memories live on
They tell me what I did wrong

It’s really forever, this life that we live
And if you remember me, then I hope you forgive
Forgive me

Healing Heart

(more information: Healing Heart, Memories of a Mentor)

Look within your own heart
There is always another open part
This burden, can you forgive?
Oh, please forgive!
I sing for you and your healing heart

Deep within my own heart
Can I open another broken part?
This burden, I will forgive
I will forgive!
Oh, pray for me and my healing heart

Omega

(more information: There’s a Bright Day Coming)

When everything is said and done
What’s there left to do?
Can we turn the clock back
And make everything new?

When everything is lost
Can we find our way again?
Can we turn back the pages?
Or have we reached the end?

Time flies away on wings of lightning
We cannot call it back.
We cannot call it back.

We might not have tomorrow
And we can’t go back to yesterday
So we’ll learn, we’ll love, and we’ll forgive
And we’ll hold on to every hour that we have together

Because I know there’s a bright day coming for you and me
And we’ll hold on to every promise we have.
