I saw an eagle fly on torn wings And it made me realize it's not the crowns that make us kings Open wide, and Divine comes in ... Open wide, and Divine comes in ... I saw an eagle fly on torn wings And it made me realize it's not the body but the soul that sings Open wide, and Divine comes in ... Open wide, and Divine comes in ... I saw an eagle fly on torn wings And it made me realize it's not the past but the present that the future brings Open wide, and Divine comes in ... Open wide, and Divine comes in ...

If it’s better to stay still, you’ll react If I need to focus, you’ll distract You’ll take a misplaced word, and make it fact It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do If she stands firm, your costume cracks and a darkness at your roots is exposed twisted words and the way you said them, you can’t take back It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do It’s a shame … You want a prediction I’ve got one for you Keep bothering me and mine I’m going to bother you If she reaches out, your disease kicks in If she nails you down, you distract again If she’s too strong, you weasel in It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do It’s a shame.

You look beautiful tonight And your eyes are like stormy weather when the sun is on the way In another universe, they say You and I are going out together But not in this one, you say I will love you forever Love you ‘til time is done Love you in another universe, yeah Damn sure love you in this one And somewhere we are dancing and you're in my arms and I’m your man.

A song came to my mind all about how to be a man I thought that all I had was time so I just wrote it in the sand And then then Tide came in, oh I wrote it in the sand The gods above When they were coming up with their plan All about the primacy of Love But they just wrote it in the sand And then the Tide came in, oh They wrote it in the sand [ And as the Tides come in So they recede And in the sand they leave behind I’m just going to write the song again ] A song came to my mind all about how to be a man I thought that all I had was time so I just wrote it in the sand And then then Tide Came In, oh I wrote it in the sand And then then Tide Came In, oh I wrote it in the sand And then then Tide Came In, oh I wrote it in the sand

I'm a man like an anthem powerful and proud big and loud bold and unbowed and still I'm crying Mama ... Mama ... Mama ... Come on home ... Papa's lonely ... Papa's lonely ... Lonely Lonely Lonely Mama ... Mama ... Mama ... Come on home ...

Some say deny, Some say deliver, Some say it’s a journey, Some say a River, And we eat the Bread and we drink the Wine dig up the earth and support the vine, The way is wide, The way is wide to heaven Some say it’s joy some say suffer Some say avoid the passion we are given And we warm in the sunlight and draw down the moon dance in the firelight and die too soon The way is wide the way is wide to heaven If there’s a heaven at all … If there’s a heaven at all … If there’s a heaven at all … Good people meet there, one and all. Some say do penance some fight pollution some take a chance on absolution we drink bitter tears to remember the fallen embrace our fears follow our calling The way is wide The way is wide to heaven.

I’ve been down, many times before Tell Her I love her, and then She shows me the door Standing in the rain wondering, “What’s this for?” And, “I don’t know if I can take it anymore.” I’ve been dropped, many times before Dig my way out and then She knocks out the floor Laying on my back, wondering, “What’s this for?” And, “I don’t know if I’m going to take it anymore.” If there’s one thing that I’ve learned In all my days It’s that my life is not own Unless I will it so

Simple song … just two chords, and sing along Simple song … simple words to say you make me strong And that without you there’s no song at all … Simple song … just two chords, and sing along Simple song … simple words to say you make me strong And that without you there’s no song at all …

countless crooked crosses misty wraiths that slip my eye a field of standing stones marking souls who thought they could fly firelight eyes are bending abstract fabrics heaven tends I never understood that happy endings can only happen when there’s an end they said mind like water in the stillness you’ll be saved but a river god’s daughter reminded me water always makes waves oh … water always makes waves oh … water always makes waves

Bwa-oh ... My friend, I see you stooping low Like you've got something on your mind My friend, I wish I could share your load Seems like one of those things that's your own But I want to tell you that I think you're doing fine We're all born with our own mountains to climb And I think you're doing fine Bwa-oh ... My friend, I see you sinking low Wish I could be there by your side My friend, then I could share your load Follow your lead -- run, fight or hide But I want to tell you that I think you're doing fine We're all born with our own mountains to climb And I think you're doing fine Bwa-oh ...

Since the day we met, we’ve stepped the spiral dance together It just gets better with each turn of the wheel When it’s dark, I’ll be your flame When it’s dry, I’ll be your rain When it’s cold, I’ll be your fire And stay with you no matter how high you fly I will be your faithful companion forever And this is my solemn vow When it’s dark, I’ll be your flame When it’s dry, I’ll be your rain When it’s cold, I’ll be your fire And stay with you no matter how high you fly And this is my solemn vow
