Waving from a distance

It feels good to know
That my eyes can reflect the clouds
I can smile in the sun's rays
Breathe the spring breeze
Our time came and now it's gone:
Take the love I once had with you
Fair journey to other shores, Blue Sapphire
I wave goodbye from the distance
Safe travels Blue Sapphire. 
You'll find a haven 
Once more.

If I Needed You

If I needed you, would you come to me?
Would you come to me for to ease my pain?
If you needed me, I would come to you.
I would swim the sea for to ease your pain.

Well the night's forlorn and the morning's born
And the morning's born with the lights of love.
And you'll miss sunrise if you close your eyes,
And that would break my heart in two.

If I needed you, would you come to me?
Would you come to me for to ease my pain?
If you needed me, I would come to you.
I would swim the sea for to ease your pain.

Baby's with me now since I showed her how,
To lay her lily hand in mine.
Who could ill agree, she's a sight to see:
A treasure for the poor to find.

If I needed you, would you come to me?
Would you come to me for to ease my pain?
If you needed me, I would come to you.
I would swim the sea for to ease your pain.

Faith

I'd still have you in my arms
If only you'd known back then
I'd still have your face resting against mine
If you realised there was nothing to be afraid of
We'd still have each other forever
If you could just trust in the process.

Seems Like...

Seems like all I've done is try,
and nothing ever seems right,
although I've given you much,
why is it never enough?
and so you've hurt my feelings,
the consequences of pride,
and though I've given you much,
why is it never enough?

given you love, given you much,
given you love, given you much,
given you love, you know it's never enough...

Seems like all I've done is cry,
and nothing ever seems right,
although I've given you much,
why is it never enough?
and so you've hurt my feelings,
the consequence of your lies,
and though I've given you much,
why is it never enough?

What did I do?
tell me what did I do?
what did I do?
given you love, given you much,
given you love, given you much,
given you love, you know it's never enough...

Seems like a part of me has died,
so nothing feels right,
and though I've given you much,
why is it never enough?
Messed around with my feelings,
and never seeing what's right,
and though I've given you much,
why is it never enough?

What did I do?
tell me what did I do?
what did I do?
given you love, given you much,
given you love, given you much,
given you love, you know it's never enough...

Seems like you wanna say goodbye,
were things I did ever right?
and though I've given you much,
why was it never enough?
and though you've hurt my feelings,
the consequences of time,
I'm tired of giving you much and so we fade in the dust...

What did I do?
tell me what did I do?
what did I do?
we fade in the dust,
it's never enough, given you love,
given you much, you know it's never enough...

What did I do?
tell me what did I do?
what did I do?
given you love, given you much,
given you love, given you much, given you love...

Eternal Rains Will Come

"... Eternal rains will come,
We should say goodbye...
Told me not to wait,
Unless I could wait forever,
There's no time for us,
To comfort in what was..."

Safety.

To feel the gaze into my eyes
The caress of hands gliding on my face
Warming my cheeks
Taking me into protection
To feel a drinking kiss on my lips
"No one will hurt you. I won't hurt you",
Maybe someday I'll stop being afraid
of experiencing that pain again.

Stranger

If I look at a photo
I don't know who I'm seeing.
If I heard your voice
I wouldn't know who I was speaking to.
You're someone from long time ago,
From someone else's life.
Someone I've never known, 
And don't care for.
Now,
You're a stranger.
