The Flow of the River Lyrics

The Flow of the River - Oct 2021

 

The tide is high and water’s cold, there’s not much light and silence is even gold 

She’s on a log crossing in the fog, no turning back she’s never been so bold. 

The flow of the river is going fast, the flow on the river is there forever to last.   

The flow of the river… The flow of the river…     

It’s a new world beyond the falls, and happiness is waiting to be found 

She has no fear she made a choice never to get stuck with her freedom in the ground. 

The flow of the river is going fast, the flow of the river is there forever to last   

The flow of the river… The flow of the river…   

Oooh and the river flows, oooh and the river flows 

And people just come and go while the river flows   

Away from oppression just the river flows 

It’s just her digression when the river flows 

She’s coming from a land where dignity is a ghost 

and the only thing she’s left is running away, away at any cost 

She’s just beyond the wall and she can hear the call, the siren of the freedom, the freedom she once had lost   

The flow of the river is going fast, the flow of the river is there, forever to last…

Ain't Out of the Wood Lyrics

Ain’t Out of the Woods – March 2021 

 

When will I find a place 

Where to hide my inner face 

Where to read and finish my books 

I’m just sweating on the way of distress. 

Someone has knocked at my door 

I rush but I stumble on the floor 

My hands are tied, my head is flying 

I probably go back to the woods 

Ain’t out of the woods, my head is frying 

Ain’t out of the woods, nothing’s fine 

Ain’t out of the woods and nothing, nothing’s on the line. 

I’m trying to stick to the plot, 

One day I will try, maybe not, 

Life is a lie because everything dies, 

Ain’t better to go back to the woods? 

  

Ain’t out of the woods, my head is frying 

Ain’t out of the woods, nothing on the line. 

Ain’t out of the woods and nothing, nothing on the line. 

Somewhere in the woods the path is climbing 

Somewhere in the woods my mood is changing 

Somewhere in the woods life is thriving 

Somewhere in the woods I’ll find you waiting 

Ain’t out of the woods, my head is frying 

Ain’t out of the woods, nothing on the line. 

Ain’t out of the woods and nothing, nothing on the line.

The Valley of Nowhere – Feb 2020 

 

It's a beautiful dawn today, 

Down the valley of Nowhere 

I'll take a chance to have my say, 

Can't spoil the moment not to be there. 

It's still a matter what I believe, 

The inner feeling is falling down 

I'll stop the time to get my strength, 

Collect the pieces of my broken crown 

Time after time, it's hard to give the reason why 

Every star would love to shine, every moon would like to cry 

Every star would lose the race, every moon would try to fly 

It's a beautiful dawn today, 

down the valley of Nowhere 

I'll take a chance to stop the play, 

Just want this moment to be shared 

In every thought I look for love, 

When hope could be my only choice 

Well, we may find it's just a fraud, 

When I can see the truth behind the voice 

Time after time, we'd just be sure to slow the pace 

Every moon will fill the night, every star will blast in space 

Every moon will star a fight, every star will show its face 

Bridge 

It's a beautiful dawn today, because I have nowhere to go 

It's a beautiful dawn today, because my time is just behind 

It's a beautiful dawn today, because the stars are there to stay 

Finale 

November's call is quite and still, 

Brown and yellow will paint the hill 

A sense of magic is what I'd feel, 

Before all that wonder I just kneel. 

Can't sit all day on this chair, 

A lapse of time is just a tear 

I'll take a chance to look away, 

Can't spoil the moment with my inner fear. 

Staying at Home Tonight – January 2021 

 

We’re staying at home tonight, 

For the movie it’s up to you, 

I brought some wine. 

We’re staying at home tonight, 

Sometimes we’d need the vibe, 

Of staying side by side. 

Light up all the candles 

Lie down on the couch, 

Forget the rest of the world out of the window. 

Rain in the background 

Fresh flower smell in the air, 

A lapse of happiness at home tonight. 

We’re staying at home tonight, 

I’ll cook the sauce and pasta, 

And anything else you may like. 

We’ll lock the door tonight, 

Tomorrow is another day, 

We just enjoy this time. 

Light up all the candles 

Lie down on the couch, 

Forget the rest of the world out of the window. 

The rain in the background 

Fresh flower smell in the air, 

A lapse of happiness at home tonight. 

(Bridge) 

There’s still the war, 

Of someone’s pride, 

There’s still the war, 

And millions died, 

There’s still the war, 

I want to stay with you tonight. 

There’s still the war, 

It’s just a dream, 

There’s still the war, 

I can see her gleam, 

There’s still the war, 

I’m going to the front tonight. 

(Final) 

I closed my eyes at midnight, 

Deep down in the trench, 

We’ve thrown the whole world out of the window. 

The rain in the background 

Dreams that don’t go away, 

A lapse of happiness with you tonight.

Don’t Look Away – Feb 2021

 

Stay, don’t say goodbye, 

You know sometimes our feelings blow us away. 

Hey, how was your day, 

Trick me with some with foolish games, 

Don’t look away. 

Don’t look away (4 times) 

See, I am all ears. 

Open your heart to me, let it away. 

Love is not the clue, 

I read it in your blue eyes, 

Don’t look away 

 Don’t look away (4 times) 

  

Let’s get it out of here. 

With sun and rain no fear 

I’ll be with you. 

For job don’t cry a tear 

You know you are without peer. 

Love is not the clue, 

I read it in your blue eyes, 

Don’t look away. 

Don’t Look away (4 times) 

You know you are without peer.

We Were Born in 1969 - Nov 2019

 

For who is still here and who is gone forever 

For who don’t remember to be a lover 

because old stories were kind of a shock 

For who is not thinking to be part of the flock. 

For who was born in nineteen sixty-nine 

Feel this new energy if you think is fine 

Don’t waste your time queuing on the line  

Take it easy, don’t stress do it, just shine. 

We were born in 1969 when music was real and great 

We were born with love and no fame, chasing dreams, freedom and fate. 

For who is still spending night hours at work 

For who’s caught drunk driving being a jerk 

Don’t waste your time grouping on the line 

Take it easy, don’t stress, just shine 

For who was born in nineteen sixty-nine 

Feel this new energy if you think is fine 

Don’t waste your time queuing on the line  

Take it easy, don’t stress do it, just shine. 

We were born in 1969 when music was real and great 

We were born with love and no fame, chasing dreams, freedom and fate. 

And when I look back after all these years 

I find the memories that I’m missing in my heart. 

For who was born in nineteen sixty-nine 

Feel this new energy if you think is fine 

Don’t waste your time queuing on the line  

Take it easy, don’t stress do it, just shine. 

We were born in 1969 when music was real and great 

We were born with love and no fame, chasing dreams, freedom and fate.

John and Peggy Lee – Apr 2021

 

John met a girl, and her name was Peggy Lee 

She said John you were meant to be with me 

It was the night when the moon was full and bright 

The music sound was the sparkle to shine the light 

Every night John was watching from the stand 

Peggy Lee was the star singing blues in a band. 

The cheering crowd was surrendering to her voice, 

Clapping hands like they’ve never got a choice. 

(Chorus) 

And then John found the words to say, 

My life is here with you Peggy Lee. 

And then John found the words to say, 

Sing a song for me Peggy Lee. 

But John was married with a girl from his town. 

He was obsessed, you could read it from his frown. 

So that one day he took a shovel from the shed 

He did it quickly, then he laid her on the bed. 

(Chorus) 

And then John found the tears to cry, 

My life is ruined with you Peggy Lee. 

And then John found the words to say, 

Sing the last song for me Peggy Lee. 

(Bridge) 

Wintertime is the place to cry, 

With cold and snow and no reason why 

40 years he served for his crime 

In his heart Peggy Lee singing all this time. 

(Finale) 

And then John found the tears to cry, 

Tonight I will die for you Peggie Lee. 

And then John found the words to say, 

Sing the last song for me Peggy Lee.

Stay Down, Stand Down – Dec 2019

 

Stay down, don’t let them know where you’re hiding your dreams, 

Stay down, you are alone no one is keeping you in sight 

Stay down, don’t show your cards you’re going to lose 

(I want you to) Stand down, lost in the crowd don’t look at me I’m just a fool. 

A fool who can tell you how life is cruel and call you a friend when no one’s there 

Thirty years ago living seemed so beautiful, then complication came around 

You know how it sounds, you just wish to love again, like a fresh new life to enjoy 

Stay down, it’s touching your heart and you will live again 

(I want you to) Stand down, lost in the crowd don’t look at me I’m just a fool. 

A fool who can tell you how life is cruel and call you a friend when no one’s there. 

You have to stand down don’t let them know where you’re hiding your dreams 

You have to stay down, stand down (3 times)

The bad roads – Jan 2020

 

Let me drive you through the bad roads 

Where people rules won’t apply 

Let me guide through the dark ways 

Where no one’s, no one’s allowed to cry. 

Take the lead through the bad roads 

Dodge the bullets and skip the holes 

In the darkness you’ll find the light 

Dodge the bullets and save the night. 

Let me drive you out of the bad road 

Through fields of fear and uncertainty 

Let me save you from your vanity 

And welcome to the circus of insanity. 

Join the party skull your beer 

Break the glass kill your fear 

Stop the hunter to kill the deer 

Stop the man to light the fire. 

It’s in my mind this hidden place 

Where demons fight to get the prize. 

Join the party on the darkest side 

And dance all night (3 times) 

Join the party skull your beer 

Break the glass kill your fear 

Stop the hunter to kill the deer 

Stop the man to light the fire.

Stranger and Outsider – Sept. 2020

 

 This is the midnight sun in a stormy mind 

Out of the line it’s my side 

Out of the fun I can hide, I can hide 

 

This is what I have done wandering blind 

Out of midnight I feel great 

Out in the sun there’s my pride, there’s my pride. 

 

Stranger and Outsider, I’m always on fire (2 times) 

 

This is the way I want, the way I count 

Out of the box I feel tired 

Out of the rocks there’s my life, there’s my life 

 

Stranger and Outsider, I’m always on fire (2 times) 

 

[Bridge] 

Lights in the city on a lonely night 

Spotted by demons and give them a ride 

Waiting for someone to cool down my stormy mind. 

The demons are teasing in my weary soul 

A party in a distance it’s still making noise 

I’m finding the mood to give up my lonely night. 

 

This is the only run to cross the line 

Out of the quite it’s my side 

Out of the sight, I can hide, I can hide. 

 

Stranger and Outsider, I’m always on fire (2 times)
