I'll feel desire through my mind's eye
Before this day is spent
I feel desire through my mind's eye
I hope it's heaven sent
I see the stars up in the sky
But do they shine for me?
I see a constellation form
Is this a prophecy?

Though my mind's eye is in disguise
I hope my days aren't spent
Through my mind's eye I chart the sky
Of this I can't pretend
The problem is I feel despair
With every star I see
I'm praying when the morning comes
The sky will set me free

Tomorrow begins a new dawn
Tomorrow is here so please come along
Tomorrow begins a new dawn
Tomorrow is here so keep holding on

Through all these days
You'll feel my rage
I hope you understand
Through all these days
You'll be outraged
I hope you'll comprehend
The zodiac informs me that
My star is on the rise
I've seen a sign up in the sky
Reveal a nice surprise

Tomorrow begins a new dawn
Tomorrow is here so please come along
Tomorrow begins a new dawn
Tomorrow is here so keep holding on
Tomorrow is here so please sing along

My Mind's Eye

Walking alone, I feel sad today
Hoping the stars will light the way
Oh please don't let me down
Oh please don't let me down
Walking in gloom through sunset's haze
Praying the fates will end my shame
Oh please don't let me down
Oh please don't let me down
Making my way through violet haze

But it's tugging at my brain now, oh no
I don't know what to say now, heaven knows
I really can't explain now, I know
I feel trapped in
'Cause it's tugging at my brain now, heaven knows
I really want to stay now
I'm sure you know
But I just can't explain now, I know
I'm drowning my friend

Fleeing the crowds that barred my way
Solitude awaits my ghost today
I feel you let me down
I feel you let me down
Needing to shelter from the rain
Taking a substance for the pain
I know I've let you down
I know I've let you down
Closing the blind on my dismay

'Cause it's tugging at my brain now, oh no
I don't know what to say now, heaven knows
I really can't explain now, I know
I feel trapped in
'Cause it's tugging at my brain now, heaven knows
I really want to stay now
I'm sure you know
But I just can't explain now, I know
I'm drowning my friend
I'm drowning again

I want to share my life with you
So will you be my wife?
I want to spend my life with you, my dear
I want to share my life with you
So will you please oblige?
I want to spend my life with you, my dear

You know that, I would never leave you
I will not deceive you
I will stay right by your side
I would never leave you
I will dedicate my life
It's true that, every time I see you
I can view our future
Playing in another life
Every time I see you
I can feel utopian vibes

I want to share my life with you
So will you be my wife?
I want to share my life with you,my dear
I want to share my life with you
It's written in the stars
I want to share my life with you, my dear

I was tempted by a far away voice
Feeling that I had no choice
I lost my heart
Now I don't know what to do
I was tempted by a far away vibe
Feeling I had nowhere to hide
I lost my soul
So I guess you've learnt the truth

You know that I would never leave you
I will not deceive you
I will stay right by your side
I would never leave you
I will dedicate my life
It's true that, every time I see you
I can view our future
Playing in another life
Every time I see you
I can feel utopian vibes

I want to spend my life with you
So will you be my wife?
I want to share my life with you, my dear

Will You Be My Wife?

Running along little bird
On your way, your way to freedom
Gliding along little bird
An azure sky awaits your greeting
A fledgling's life is all too fleeting

So we all ran down to see him
Yes we all ran down to see him
As he flew away
So we all ran down to see him
Yes we all ran down to see him
As he flew away

Gliding along little bird
On your way, your way to freedom
Flying along little bird
Giving life and love new meaning
Spreading joy throughout the region

So we all ran down to see him
Yes we all ran down to see him
As he flew away
So we all ran down to see him
Yes we all ran down to see him
As he flew away

Maybe I will lose your love
Your more than a dream away
It always hurts when you stray
Maybe I will lose your love
You left in a rage today
My broken heart, don't betray
Maybe I will lose your love
I"m feeling you ebb away
Every hour I must say

So I won't mind
You can call anytime
Then I'm sure I'll feel much better
For I'll find time
Just to wait on the line
For we must resolve this matter soon

So maybe I will lose your love
It's just an emotion away
Every night, every day
Maybe I will lose your love
What more can I say
But in my heart you will stay

So my frame of mind
Is it ends anytime
I'm prepared for what lies after
If you change your mind
You can call any time
For I promise I'll try harder too

Now maybe I will lose your love
All over in a sorry rhyme
Now you've made up your mind

Maybe I Will Lose Your Love

I'm walking through the night
Hoping you'll see me
I'm out of my mind
I'm walking through the night
Hoping you'll free me
If you'll be so kind
I'm walking through the night
This really grieves me
I'm walking through the haze
I'm hiding in the shade

Now bishops praying in the dead zone
Bishops slaving in the dead zone

I'm walking through the night
Please don't appease me
I'm raging inside
I'm walking through the night
Oh please forgive me
I'm way out of line
I'm walking through the night
No hope within me
I'm walking through this haze
I'm spying in the shade

The Dead Zone

I'd rather be a poet than a star
It don't seem right
This pain inside
I tried to conquer all my fears from afar
It don't seem right
Such pain's inside
It don't seem right
I feel denied

But you are my pride
I'm glad you're happy and warm inside
You are my pride
For me each day
You are my pride
I pray you'll always be by my side
You are my pride
I must proclaim

I'd rather be forsaken, left alone
It don't seem right
This pain inside
I'd rather be mistaken for a clown
It don't seem right
My pain abounds
I lose sleep at night
My heart resounds

For you are my pride
I'm glad you're happy and warm inside
You are my pride
For me each day
You are my pride
I pray you'll always be by my side
You are my pride
I must proclaim
You are my pride
I must proclaim

You Are My Pride

Each day I wake up
Tears in my eyes
From nightmares I can't describe
Each day I wake up
To my surprise
I am still alive
So it's time to pray
And it's time to heed
It's time to praise the Lord indeed
It's time to hope
And it's time to grieve
Falling down on my knees

Each day I wake up
I realize
My comrades in arms have died
Each day I wake up
I can't decide
Should I have the will to survive
So I try to run
And I try to hide
But there's no escape for me
I try to fight
But I only concede
Falling down on my knees
Falling down on my knees

About Me

Bio

I have been writing songs, poems and short stories since I was in my teens. My lyrics cover a wide range of genres, from love songs to dream and avant-garde to rock.
My literary influences, among many, are the authors James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Marcel Proust and Milan Kundera. I find their stream of consciousness style of writing very inspirational as regards my lyric writing.
Among the Songwriters who have influenced me are Leonard Cohen, Marvin Gaye, Carole King and Brian Eno. I feel their lyrics go to the very heart and soul of humanity.
