I had that dream again
Same place different time
I asked Chris if we can have a minute so he exited, stage right
We were laying and I was holding you so damn tight like if I let go you'd float away.
Wood was falling from the roof and it was coming straight for your head
It probably would have killed you but I stopped it and saved you instead
You were so relieved we both started crying and I ...

They look at me like I'm the problem
and the cause of their boredom
and who knows
maybe in some ways I am.
I was a teenager once
bemoaning the lack of activities to get involved in
because opportunities were slim
and money was always tight
we had no Internet
to check through what's on listings
or you tube videos to learn new skills
I remember a lack of positive role models

Away with the days troubles by sword and plank
Where men were judged by the ale they drank,
And the guilty without guilt where ...

Kill the winter - Sun shine on
Melt the snow - Reveal the dead
Free the hammer and chisel from the stone
Reveal the ground to free my head
Let me feel - Let me see - Everything stop glistening
Let the melting set me free - Budding branches on the tree
Kiss the world - Breakthrough flowers
Illuminate what’s devoured
Warm the waking - warm the growing hour - Illuminate t...

Dodging and ducking,
Running and jumping,
Life has caught a spirit.
A moment has caught a life,
A lifetime changed in a moment.
A child who is the man,
The man who was the child.
Climbing and sliding,
Loving and losing,
Bullets invade the man.
A soul is invaded by a bullet,
A bullet that came in a moment,
