Lyrics

Secrets

Written By: Mark Petruzzi

You can't make me go away
You can't dream me 'cause I'm real
You can't twist me like a wire
To any shape you feel

You can see me as I am
You can ask me what you may
Can I tell you anything?
Can I give away
My secrets?

We are two as one
We're on the edge of our minds
Looking out from behind our hearts
Stepping out to find who we really are...

You're a shadow on a wall
I am a light to show your shape
And you do the same for me
We watch with eyes aflame

Still we want much more in time
We will wander to our truth
Or will seek until we find
Something else to use...

We are two as one
We're on the edge of our minds
Looking out from behind our hearts
Stepping out to find who we really are...

You can see me as I am
You can ask me what you may
Can I tell you anything?
Can I give away
My secrets?

If Only

If Only
Words & Music by Mark Petruzzi ©2005 CloudStreetsMusic

Is there enough sky?
Is there enough blue?
For all the dreams that I have sent up to...

Where the clouds are dancing out the
Shapes of life
As I watch and wonder
Who I might

Have been

If only I
If only I
If only I
Just didn't fear

Is there enough ocean?
Is there enough sea?
To hold untapped emotion
From inside of me...

Do I dare journey
To my deepest heart?
Do I dare wonder
Who I might

Have been?

If only I
If only I
If only I
Just didn't fear

If only I
—I could soar higher
If only I
—were truly free
If only I
—If only I
Just didn't fear

Is there enough heat?
Is there enough fire?
So I can go free with my desire...

Or must I struggle with fire inside?
As I wonder
How you & I might

Have been

If only I
—I could soar higher
If only I
—Were truly free
If only I
—If only I
Just didn't fear
—Just didn't fear

If only I
—I could run deeper
If only I
—Open my heart
If only I
—If only I
Just didn't fear

Are there enough hills?
Are there enough fields?
Is there enough Earth to still the
The longings we feel?
The echoes of dreams
A distant call
Oh, don't you wonder,
At what we all

Might have been

If only I
-we could soar higher
If only I
—Were truly free
If only I
—If only we
Just didn't fear
—Just didn't fear

If only I
—We could run deeper
If only I
—Open our hearts
If only I
—If only I
Just didn't fear

Just didn't fear

The Wall

Written By: Mark Petruzzi

Who are you my love?
To me you are still a mystery
I ask the stars above
But they don't know you
Even they don't know you

You can't hide your soul
I can see you; still, I want to know you
When will you be whole?
You don't know
You don't know....do you...?

But you won't break
No you won't crumble that wall
With so much at stake
Will you even bend at all?

Are we somehow unfinished?
Our souls but left undone?
Or now are we diminished...
When we fail to love?

But how can we love
if we cannot risk?
Will we keep up our walls
And settle for this?

You say give me time; and it takes time that's true;
and I understand but what more can I do?

If you won't break
No you won't crumble that wall
With so much at stake
Will you even bend at all?

Who are you my love
To me you are still a mystery
I ask the stars above
But they don't know you
Even they don't know you
