Track Name: You Led Me To Believe
YOU LED ME TO BELIEVE

you led me to believe
that your love would always be
guiding and protecting me
never to let go

you helped me find my way
after years of little faith
you led me to believe
so don't let me go

always i've dreamed of you
always i've known
you live in me
your love still lives in me

you led me to believe
that you would be there for me
in your hand you held for me
an eternal rose

but the rose has made me weak
it has made a ghost of me
one by one the mysteries
have escaped my soul

always i've dreamed of you
always i've known
you live in me
your love still lives in me

though i can't see
no i can't see
where your love will lead
you led me to believe
so don't let me go
Track Name: River Of Tears In Everyone
RIVER OF TEARS IN EVERYONE

there's a river of tears
in everyone
that you can't see
it's over-flowing
inside of me
there is a river of tears

there's an old summer balloon
in the winter sky
heading over town
there doesn't seem to be a soul around
there's just a river of tears

river of sadness
make your way
to my dried-out eyes
'cause in these hard times
they'll be days
when all i have to do is cry
all i have to do is cry

there's a river of tears
in every heart
in a silent flow
you try so hard not to let it show
there is a river of tears

now i'm looking for a friend
in the middle of a crowd
but i feel so crushed
just feel the river in everyone
there is a river of tears

river of sadness
make your way
to my dried-out eyes
'cause in these hard times
they'll be days
when all i have to do is cry
all i have to do is cry
is cry

everyday that goes by
river gets more wide
river gets more loud
you know one day it's going to all come out
i see a river in
i see a river in
i see a river in everyone
i see a river of tears
Track Name: Day Of The Dead
DAY OF THE DEAD

day, day of the dead
day to be with you
with you again

day to be with friends
friends who are with us
friends who have left

mother i won't forget you
father i won't regret
brother i'll never leave you
sister you're still my friend
i'll see all your faces again

day of the dead
gather the flowers
bake up the bread

sky, sky of white dove
won't you come find me
find me my love

lover i can still feel you
feel you as the sun sets
lover i'm right beside you
i never i never left
i'll see your face smiling again

day of the dead
day to be with you
with you again
Track Name: Human Cry
HUMAN CRY

don't run away
don't run away
from your human cry
your human cry
keeps you alive
in the dead of night
where are you going?
what are you doing?
don't you deny
your human cry

they made you king
a pale king
when your hands were tied
but you have the wings
the silken wings
of a butterfly
you may be branded
you may be stranded
don't you deny your human cry

well you can hide
but you can't run
no you can't run anymore
because the tide
has finally come
and now at last
the past has washed ashore

don't run away
don't run away
and remain apart
your human cry
takes you inside
an infinite heart
you may be lonely
you may be hungry
don't you deny
your human cry

you've been running in the streets
never see the stars at night
you've been running from the sea
you've been running from the sea
of human cry

take another tear from the well of your tearmaker
light another candle in the heart of your maria
listen to the rustle of the maple in the morning
and when it is evening listen to the children sleeping

you've been running from the sea
