Lyrics

Then it begins

Written By: Jim Burles

Crouched under branches,
the birds still sing,
as the summer rain,
dusts off the morning dreams.

Sounds from the street,
seep into the room,
As the Lawn apparatus begin their debut..

The geometry of the ironing board,
Reflects sunlight,
across your toes..

The scent of flowers,
as the rain subsides,
I feel your touch and the earth abides,

Then it begins,
I fall for you all over again.

There is no end,
Just wanted you to know my friend.

sometimes it hits you,
and you just can't believe
it was so simple,
so clear and clean.

Sometimes it’s insight
as the clue is revealed,
Like a mystery novel,
In a page concealed.

You draw in me
and I drink in your muse
Aged like a wine,
the taste of you.

Then it begins,
I fall in love all over again.

There is no end,
Just wanted you to know my friend

Cast of ages

Written By: Minimal Jim

Send me down,
where it all began,
to the start-point of the age of man.

Indulge me now
while I spin a tale,
of a complex time,
a majestic scale.

Legends spawned,
from war and peace,
from sacrifice,
and selfless deeds.

The wisdom of the past is present,
The ancient cell,
is always with us..

Here’s to the cast of ages,
The thousand stages,
The endless living song.

Here’s to the sons and daughters,
To all the fathers,
To mothers,
everyone.

send me down to a time of youth,
peel back time,
as a childs truth.

Indulge me now
while I devaite
and ask no questions,
just see and relate,

to the past, and present tense,
so good to be,
so good to exist..

so there were times that I do regret,
but overall
it's been a damn good trip.

Tangent

Written By: Jim Burles

We are more,
than the sum,
of the ones we decesended from;
Life is the mystery you see.

in this world of pain and joy,
we play a part we never know,
always on a tangent of our dreams.

but it feels,
so..
good to be alive you know.
yes it feels,
so...
good to be alive you know.
we laugh,
we cry,
we sing.

we live,
we die,
we dream.

Give me strength,
to face my fears.
let me see it crystal clear.
Free my mind,
just once,
before I go...

Sometimes we love,
Sometimes we hate,
Somtimes we draw the hand of fate.
Somtimes we know that trust is all we need.

and it feels,
so,
good to be alive you know.
yes it feels,
so,
good to be alive you know.
we laugh,
we cry,
we sing.

we live,
we die,
we dream.
