Lyrics

running away

Written By: charles james glackin

As winter leaves are falling faster than snowflakes. Cover your thin disguise. Each changing moment is a constant in our lives. When will you realise ?
You can't keep running away. Running away from you. 'can't keep running away. You've got some catching up to do.
You're heart is racing. You're in some kind of trouble. Stand up and face your fears. Your eyes are open but your seeing is muddled. Focus and make things clear.
You can't keep running away. Running away from you. 'can't keep running away. You've got some catching up to do.
Many are the races we run in this life. Plenty are the falls we have to take. Glory in the triumphs you taste in your time. Even though your heart may break.
You walk the footpaths followed by others. Dawning horizons ' knew'. Your soul is coloured by the fire of sunlight. Tempered with your sorrow's blue. Ooh ! Ooh ! Tempered with your sorrow's blue .
'can't keep running away hey, yeah! You've got some catching up to do. You know that it's true. Oh Oh Oh Oh! Oh Oh Oh Oh!
Running away hey , yeah ! You've got some catching up to do. You know that it's true.

different but the same

Written By: charles james glackin

My mood is blue while yours is black. You push ahead as I lay back. We share different points of view but our hearts still beat in tune. You like the comfort of a warm place. I prefer the wind and rain on my face. Who's to judge the timing or the place, when life itself is our main grace.
Breathing the fresh air in and letting it out..............breathe deep!
I'm feeling pressurised you don't. You go the extra yard , I won't. Unless the stubbornness abates then this hope may turn to hate. When we say the same things at the same time , my soul's uplifted by your smile. Unspoken words that flow in rhyme. ' I am yours and you are mine'.
Breathing the fresh air in and letting it out.....breathe deep!
We trouble ourselves with our problems. It changes the way we see the world. And when we are warmed by the closeness of others. We know the magic that is love.
We fill this life with praise and blame. 'are touched by tragedy that maims. Each and everyone by name. We are different but the same.
Your mood is blue while mine's is
black. You're in defense as I attack. The roles reversed pleasure and pain. We're just different but the same. Different but the same.
We trouble ourselves with our problems. It changes the way we see the world. And when we are warmed by the closeness of others. We know the magic that is love.
We fill this life with praise and blame. ' are touched by tragedy that maims. Each and everyone by name. We're just different but the same.

Let's go dancing

Written By: Charles James Glackin

Sometimes I win. Sometimes I lose.
Sometimes I heal. Sometimes I bruise.
Sometimes I laugh. Sometimes I cry.
Sometimes I am falling. Sometimes I fly.
Sometimes I think. Sometimes I don't. Sometimes I will. Sometimes I won't.
Should you walk a road least travelled. As you reach beyond the stars.
If your belief remains unshaken. No distance is too far.
To keep you away from my heart.
You're in my very soul.
If music is the food of love.
You're main course rock'n'roll.
Let's go dancin'
In a moonlit summer's night.
On a never ending dancefloor.
To a different kind of light.
Sometimes I'm weak. Sometimes I'm strong. Sometimes I'm right. Sometimes I'm wrong.
Sometimes I'm up. Sometimes I'm down. Sometimes so serious. Sometimes a clown.
Sometimes I'm lost. Sometimes I'm found. Sometimes I swim. Sometimes I drown.
Should you walk a road least travelled. As you reach beyond the stars. If your belief remains unshaken. No distance is too far. To keep you away from my heart.
You're in my very soul.
If music is the food of love.
You're main course rock'n'roll.
Let's go dancin'.
In a Moonlit summer's night.
On a never ending dancefloor.
To a different kind of light.
Let's go dancin'.
Up in the silver blue.
With a cast of endless millions.
When all I see is you.
Sometimes I'm blessed.......
