Lyrics

Feels so right

Written By: Jim Baldwin

Feels so right

A new age is dawning or so we are told
But I don't care if we never get old
We can change our ways by reversing the trend
But do all good things have to come to an end

We can retrace our steps from where we came
But nothing can ever be exactly the same
We've had our fun and we want to have more
More binging and drinking on the dance floor

Hey there what do you say
I say Hey there what do you say
We can do what we want to do
We can do what we want to do

Lets get together and run with the flow
We'll follow each other wherever we go
Move faster and faster keep the beat tight
How can it be wrong when it feels so right

We can keep moving forwards, walk the high wire
In our hearts the sparks will change to fire
And the fire will blaze and shine day and night
The sky is the limit as we fly high as a kite

No going back, no reversing the trend
We don't want this life to come to an end
We've had our fun and we want to have more
More binging and drinking on the dance floor

Hey there what do you say
I say Hey there what do you say
We can do what we want to do
We can do what we want to do

We can stay together and run with the flow
Keep following each other wherever we go
Move faster and faster keep the beat tight
How can it be wrong when it feels so right

music solo

Glaciers melting and the sea level rising
We keep together, no slipping and sliding
We've had our fun and we want to have more
More binging and drinking on the dance floor

Hey there what do you say
I say Hey there what do you say
We can do what we want to do
We do what we want to do

We can float high in our own clouds of bliss
There's no running away, away from this
We binge and drink both day and night
How can it be wrong when it feels so right

Imaginings

Imaginings

I was trav'lling alone with you inside my head
You were dreaming about me in my dream last night
And in your vivid dream I was dreaming 'bout you
The music in the background was all that was real
Nothing of importance, no hints of how to feel
Spikes of purple anguish and tears of darkened fear
Opened up the stage where the spot lights made them clear
You lay all cradled with a doctor by your side

He looked anxious waiting for your eyes to open
But did not see me in the spotlight of your dream
He must have wondered why - thinking about you
Nothing of importance, p'rhaps, just a simple dream.

Raindrops were falling as I walked across the down
Thinking of a fine day across an outside bay
My thoughts were real - lying deep inside my brain
You sat in a cradle, the doctor by your side
Drinking black coffee in the quiet of the day
The silence was real now the music played no more
Your eyes were still closed as the rain blew in the wind
The dog that was barking stopped to pick up a stick

He played games with it, thinking it to be his prey
Then exhausted lay in a cradle in the grass
No doctor sitting by wondering what to do
Waiting for open eyes to prove he was alive.

This doctor, he spoke to you a couple of times
Asking if you heard him, could feel his hand on yours
There was no reply, perhaps you didn't want to talk
No law says you must answer questions asked of you
I suppose you could have said some words to him
Something other than thoughts that were real to you
But not in any way contradicting yourself
Since he could not - then - have rejected them.

I called the dog who had begun to bark again
He knew it was time to return from where we came
His thoughts while resting were only a memory
How easy it must be to say someone's insane
The doctor in your dream knows nothing about me
And the dog, oh - yes, I think he's yours not mine
It's lonely travelling this lonely country road
I'm happy to have you twisting inside my mind.

Met you in the Moonlight

Written By: Jim Baldwin

Verse 1
I met you in the moonlight
With the stars shining bright
It's all clear now - in hindsight
Our love at first sight
You came to me
So wild and free
Cute as can be
Love holds the key
Dancing the night away

Chorus
Any time's the right time for love
There's nothing love can't rise above

Verse 2
We are happy together
The best got better
You're as beautiful as ever
I think you're so clever
You stay with me
Always carefree
Any fool can see
Nothing is free
Living our life away

Chorus

Verse 3
Its hard for you now that I am ill
You make my heart stand still
It's time again to take another pill
I'm here by force of will
I hang in here
So full of cheer
A growing fear
The end is near
I love you more than I can say

Chorus

Verse 4
I met you in the moonlight
With the stars shining bright
It's all clear now - in hindsight
Our love at first sight
You came to me
So wild and free
Cute as can be
Love holds the key
Dancing the night away

Chorus
