Lyrics

Remembering You

Written By: David Ries

Thoughts of you, brittle with age, tearing at my mellowed mind
I know - I'm Remembering You
Where's our dashing youth , was it captured by a photograph, that's faded now.
Night Sand, Nude Feet ...those moonlit wanderings
To the warmth of our arms
To the warmth of Remembering You.

TImes like these, my sanity, is dangling by a thread of reality
by Remembering You.
Where's our dashing youth , was it captured by a photograph, that's faded now.
Night Sand, Nude Feet ...those moonlit wanderings
To the warmth of our arms
To the warmth of Remembering You.

Heart of Wax

Written By: David Ries

Can you feel a heart of wax before it slips through your fingers like a river through a sieve of cattails?
Can you see through eyes of ice where colors run like melted glass through the veins of a dying maple leaf ?
Can hands of stone hold a trembling bird before they crack under the echo of an angry God on his way to a more receptive garden?

Rainbow of Darkness

Written By: David Ries

Spending your life like a shadow
Watching the wind leave the land
A Rainbow of Darkness descends with the snow
To pry the last page from your hand

The air is so heavy with sorrow
Like smoke pressing down on your eyes
Wait till the seam of your heart pulls apart
Until hope filters down through the sky.

Deep Sleep

Written By: David Ries

Beneath the waters your breath is impotent
Shadows like the branches of a great tree envelop you
Your skin grows hot in the depths of cold
Wet with fear you come awake in your darkened room
Anxious for the light of day
Before you slip below the surface once again.
