Moonlight 04:05
In the moonlight, in the distance Drums were whispering a heartbeat In the distance, in the moonlight Waves were breaking up the shore Across the universe Giant gears were turning And we were part of it Back then the constellations Seemed so close to me So full of mystery Barefoot down a gravel road A young man spoke in my direction With a slight Italian accent Shared a full moon invitation His voice just barely Loud enough to hear Still it lingers Sweetly in my ears All along those dusty roads The crickets called out to the toads All the way down to the coast The night that I remember most Across the universe Shooting stars were falling And so I made a wish Back then the constellations Were nameless to me So full of mystery I found you and you found me A makeshift disco by the sea Salt and seaweed in the air Barefoot, free, without a care We danced like children Spirits in the night Fearless, timeless Weightless in the moonlight It washed over me Washed over me Ooo over me, ah oh over me Ah oh over me, ah, oh over me In the moonlight, in the distance Drums were whispering a heartbeat

Dreamers 03:35
In the beginning The road rose up to greet us The sun was warm upon our backs Rain fell gently on our tracks In the beginning The stars were there to guide us The earth was soft beneath our toes The future ours to compose We believed you and me Had a date with destiny In the end we would be Nothing but melody We were dreamers but we knew That our dreams were made of atoms Packed our bags and joined the ranks Of an army without tanks We were dreamers and we knew That our dreams were made of radiance We were dreamers, yes it's true But our dreams were made of atoms We believed you and me Had a date with destiny In the end we would be Nothing but melody Crossed the land And sailed the sea On a ship of poetry In the end we would be Nothing but melody

April 03:38
I thought it would be easy To change your mind I thought it would be easy Just a question of time Back when April dreamed of May I thought of what I'd say But June went by too soon And August skipped July I thought it would be easy To change your mind I thought it would be easy Just a question of time Back when April dreamed of May I thought I'd find a way But June went by too soon And August skipped July Back when April dreamed of May I hoped that you would stay But June went by too soon And August skipped July (2) I thought it would be easy To change your mind I thought it would be easy Just a question of time (2) A few more months like this Give or take I'm fine but trees are bare And showing wear A few more leaves Coming down Making mounds On the ground (2)

Early this morning A mockingbird sang from a tree I went back to sleep And had the most wonderful dream Of you and me Magical and free A different world All that we could be Under the sky of love Under the sea of love Under the sun Castles in the sky And though we're young Barely getting by I still believe We'll get there if we try And we will live in bliss Forever after Under the sky of love Under the sea of love Under the sun of love Under the moon of love

Sleeper 04:28
The time has come To take the steps that need be taken Seems clear to me The sleeper must awaken The time has come To share my clear intention You might see A gradual transformation The time has come To take a new direction Can you see? To make the right connection I realize that this may come as a surprise A ship of fools seeking uncharted destinations The sleeper must awaken The sleeper must awaken The time has come To take the steps that need be taken Seems clear to me The sleeper must awaken I realize that this may come as a surprise There hasn't been much time For heart to hearts and explanations A ship of fools seeking uncharted destinations The sleeper must awaken The sleeper must awaken The sleeper must awaken The sleeper must awaken I realize I realize I realize I realize
