Lyrics

Let Me In

Written By: Paul Martin

In a world of changing people
How the hell do you know what to say
Everybody’s worry about right ways, wrong ways
Who gives a damn just give me your heart
You see for me that’s fine
No matter your mind, it’s always the right time
You’re young and you’re free
Who gives a damn, don’t care about me

And I said, Darling
Don’t constrain
Just give me your mind
Whether right, whether wrong
Well let me in, let me feel your mind

Well, its time for people to experiment
What you see is not always what you get, you get
You get dizzy, you get that pain
You get that lovin’ feeling back again

Stealing Time

Written By: Paul Martin

Tell me how
You can go on living when you’re pushing the feeling down, down
To the ground
You know you need to release the things that temper you,
Release emotions that build up inside
Tell me why
I see the goodness side of you the temper seems to roll
Off the other end
Never be
Anymore than you can be, but always more than I will see

And if you let your river flow new things will come to you
And if you let your passion go then you’ll feel what its like to be true

I have seen
The darkening clouds surround you, and you easily push them far away, away
(and it) Amazes me
How you’re on the top again, how you’ve got your flood gates open wide

And if you let your river flow new things will come to you
And if you let your passion go then you’ll feel what its like to be true

We’re stealing time while everyone is fumbling
I never thought that I could take my time with you
I’m stealing time constantly rewinding
Cause its more time that I can spend with you

SOLO

Pre-chorus
We’re stealing time while everyone is fumbling
I never thought that I could take my time with you
I’m stealing time constantly rewinding
I never knew, never knew that time could be abused
We’re stealing time while everyone is fumbling
I never thought that I could take my time with you
I’m stealing time constantly rewinding
Cause its more time that I can spend with you

In You

Written By: Paul Martin

Take me to your Amazon, take me to your king
Take me to your vision and everywhere in between
Let me feel your ocean, hit me with your wave
I’ll try to dodge the raging surf, I’ll try to behave
Everything is blue, everything is green, everything is red
I conquer your territory in my head
But I know the danger, I’ve seen your kind
You’ve taken over my mind

Come on – Let me feel your rain
Come on – let me fuel the fire
Come on – let me seize your ocean
In you the Earth

I am the conqueror of this land
I hold the oceans, deep in the palm of my hand
In you the Earth, I will be true
Fill me up with lightning, let the thunder pound through

CHORUS
Recharge your rain
Let us recharge the fire
Recharge your ocean
In you the Earth

How calm is your ocean
Hold strong is your fire
How deep is your passion
To lift your higher
