Rising 05:52
I feel it in the air I feel it in the Earth I feel it in the fires on the mountain side I feel it in the eyes of the people passing by I feel it in the water I feel it in the flood. Its rising Rising Its rising Rising I've seen it in the patterns of the stars above I feel it in the movements of the Earth below I feel it in the falling of the autumn leaves I feel it in the roots of the disappearing trees I feel it in the fire I feel it in the storms Its rising Rising Its rising Rising Rising up the time has come We are one or we gone as one Rising up the perfect wave We are one or we are washed away Gone will be conspiracy Gone will be duplicity Gone will be the fallacy Gone will be illusion from our eyes

Sailing 05:10
A long road it has been Too short it would seem With your hand in mine Until the edge of time A perfect harmony It looked like it would be Sailing How long have you been? Sailing On that frozen sea? All the autumn leaves Have faded from their summer green and all the memories Like roses they have gone to seed A perfect harmony It looked like it would be Sailing How long have you been? Sailing On that frozen sea? One day I will find you I don't know where you've been, But one day I will find you and I'll let you in From the cold and the rain that burn your skin From the cold and the pain that burn within I'll find you there No matter how away you go, no matter how far away I'll find you here No matter how away you go, no matter how far away I'll find you here No matter how away you go, no matter how far away

All was quiet in the dark The moon rose over the land and one by one the stars came out in quiet conversation silent conversation with the night And from a thousand miles away I saw you smiling at me How do you lift my heart in to heaven this way with secret symphonies and silent melodies And from a thousand miles away I saw you smiling at me And all the things I couldn't say They came flying from me I'm coming I'm coming through I'm coming to be with you I'm stowed away on a plane I'm stowed away I don't know when I'll return again I'm coming I'm coming through I'm coming to be with you I'm stowed away on a plane I'm stowed away I don't know when I'll return again

Once I knew a girl with a wild eye She was dark and beautiful Once I knew a girl with wild heart It always seemed so full She led me up the stairs To a darkened room And there she left me all alone An arrow in my mind Driving me insane and blind and I don't know which way to turn Once I knew a girl with a wild song She wrapped it round my heart She kept it in a cage with a bowl of milk Admittedly that wasn't so hard Up this darkened stair To this darkened room Where she left me all alone An arrow in my mind Driving me insane and blind and I don't know which way to turn I don't know where she's coming from I don't where she's going to I should listen to myself I don't know where it's coming from I don't where it's going to I should listen to myself For we'll never see All the things would could have seen with love We'll never know All the things we could have known with love We'll never hear The music that we could've heard with love Love Love Love Once I knew a girl with a wild soul She was dark and mysterious She kept me in a cage with a bowl of milk Accommodation was luxurious.
