Track Name: over and over
OVER AND OVER

words never say what I wanted to say
feelings evade being captured in a phrase
so I won’t contrive any clever lines. it feels so fine to be your friend
and I’ll keep on telling you over and over and over again, I love you

you did not speak when you reached into me.
you listened to my song and sang the harmony
laughter and tears, joys and fears keep flowing by… they do not end
and I hear you telling me over and over and over again, I love you

let me say it while it’s here- whether it be one more day or years and years
your love shines through. it’s very clear. I look inside and you are near

so let our souls keep dancing to the music of the heart
our spirits sing together. we will never be apart
and every new day is another chance to say how great it feels to be your friend
I don’t mind telling you over and over and over again, I love you
I love you

Track Name: the singer
THE SINGER

just like a dream, you come only at night

dancing in shadow… safe… out of sight…

singing a song that was written to be

the song that I’ve always heard singing in me


and I love you because you’re the singer

I love you because you’re the song of my life

and yet, you remain alone in the darkness

and I only listen and wait for the light


just like a dream, you slip into my mind

silently singing… you stand at the edge

and the melody echoes through all of the corners

and fills in the empty space I fear to tread


and I love you because you’re the singer

I love you because you’re the song of my life

but is your reality a truth I can see

or are you in truth, a reflection of me?


just like a dream, you come only at night

dancing in shadow… safe… out of sight…

singing a song that was written to be

the song that I’ve always heard singing in me


and I love you because you’re the singer

I love you because you’re the song of my life

and yet, you remain alone in the darkness

and I only CAN listen and wait for the light

Track Name: honest eyes
HONEST EYES
by Linda Worster

I can feel the confrontation coming miles away.
It’s the look on your face, the things you don’t say
and those honest eyes so plainly revealing the play of emotion, the circle of feeling.
It seems like such a long, long time since I’ve seen such honest eyes.

Fighting my impulse… afraid that you’re knowing… how much I want you…
It’s more than I’m showing.
It wouldn’t be wise to let you see why. It’s so hard not to touch you, but this isn’t the time.
So much of me responds to those honest eyes.

Honest eyes, I can’t look too deeply
Or you’ll see the truth I’ve been hiding discreetly away.
You’ll see the loneliness there.
Somehow I think it just wouldn’t be fair.

Maybe tomorrow, I’ll be able to tell you
But I’m holding back now so I don’t overwhelm you.
Feelings are fragile, so hard to be healed.
It’s so easy using words as a shield so I don’t end lost in those honest eyes.

Honest eyes I can’t look too deeply
Or you’ll see the truth I’ve been hiding discreetly away.
You’ll see the loneliness there.
Somehow I think it just wouldn’t be fair.

Track Name: music of our changes
MUSIC OF OUR CHANGES

once again the seasons change the summer into fall
a flower in me shines and feels it all
and I run now thru damp deserted moors
the tired grey lady-veiled in mist on her shores
and north of here, the summer heat is dying in a blaze
but N summer nods and smiles and softly fades

a season of waiting is upon me once more
God know what the winter wind has in store
of...the changes are upon us
I listen hard and add my voice to the chorus

emotions and passions, they too feel the frost
it is life turning inward not love that is lost
and i run now thru a damp deserted time
a tired gray lady-veiled in mist of mind
we too have our seasons - and now we will sleep
to the music of our changes and dreams from the deep

Chorus

once again my seasons change my summer into fall
heart and spirit shiver but they answer the call
and i run now thru the ashes of my answers
I wait for the spring to turn me back to a dancer
and part of me is summer heat dying in a blaze
and part of me N - as she softly fades.

Track Name: that's all
THAT’S ALL
c Linda Worster 1978
I don’t care what it was you did.
It’s time you were unlocking all the feelings that you hid
Don’t be afraid of a you that will show
Just let it flow. Let it go

I don’t love you just because you’re nice to me
I don’t love you only when you smile
And I don’t love you just because of all the beautiful things that you do
I just love you
I just love you because you are you
That’s all. Just because you are you.

I know how it feels to be tired and confused
It’s living and dying
and you have to choose
And sometimes it seems like there’s no difference between the two

Oh but I don’t love you only when you’re not afraid
I don’t love you just because I should
And I don’t love you just because sometimes you make me feel so good
I just love you
I just love you because you are you
That’s all. Just because you are you.

It’s ok if we’re angry or hurt
But hanging on to those feelings only makes them worse
We could have loved ourselves and turned it to hate
But everyone has their share of mistakes

I don’t love you only when you’re right
I don’t hate you when you’re wrong
And I don’t love you only when you’re feeling strong… it’s true
I just love you
I just love you because you are you
That’s all. Just because you are you.
