Close your eyes Take the time to realize The things you might have been doing Speak your mind It is time for you to know What it is you can go through Sometimes I feel I should be Going somewhere I try to feel unafraid But more aware I hear the waves With the sound of nature's words Of knowing things will be better Then I wonder Of thoughts of how I feel The things that will continue way out there In the air Sometimes I feel I should be Going somewhere I try to feel unafraid But more aware And every time you hear me sing And with the memories they'll bring Then you'll know you'll be dreaming Sometimes I feel I should be Going somewhere I try to feel unafraid But more aware And every time you hear me sing And with the memories they'll bring Then you'll know you'll be dreaming You'll be dreaming

I always dance to something in my mind Being unaware of people's time But a song starts to play in my brain And it's very hard for others to explain I hear a special song in my head Sometimes while I'm lying in my bed It's something I can't help but do all day Searching for the best way to say That I can't stand still No, I can't stand still (The thoughts I have) They're taking me somewhere (The songs I hear) They're playing from somewhere The dreams I have From inspiration makes me glad And all the time I'm never feeling sad So many people think it's very strange Not exactly sure how to change They like for me to be just the same After when I hear them call my name I start to catch myself in other places Unaware of other people's spaces I ask when is the right time for these dances Then if I'm by myself I get these chances I can't stand still (Can't stand still) No I can't stand still (Can't stand still) I can't stand still (Can't stand still) Don't know why I can't stand still (Can't stand still) (The thoughts I have) They take me somewhere (The songs I hear) They play from somewhere The dreams I have From inspiration makes me glad And all the time I'm never feeling sad I can't stand still Don't know why I can't stand still I can't stand still I can't stand still Keep goin'

In a weather that's filled with snow Where to go? Who to know? In a weather that's full of sun Things begun, but where to run? Different thoughts and images fill my head Different voices with different words They said In a building that's filled with sound All around where I found A special ride that's either tall or very small But where they called The weather is cool no problems yet We're ready to go and we're all set They said And so we fly Up in the sky And now it's time for the prize It's time for the prize We're never down But never found The time for the prize It's time for the prize In a weather that's filled with rain What to say? No refrain Where there's always a problem solved We're involved and resolves We're going to another place We don't know yet, but somewhere in space They said And so we fly Up in the sky And now it's time for the prize It's time for the prize We're never down But never found The time for the prize It's time for the prize (And so for a second there's a peaceful breeze) (And I'm really enjoying this place of ease) (Things are very different from what they seem) (And I'm wondering now if this is just a dream) (But now I feel small flowers in my hands) It was dark at first but now I understand This prize is very special to me This prize is very special to me Far from the ground And we have found The time for the prize The time for the prize We're going down And all around The time for the prize is always found

I can't take no part of it He says, "My sister doesn't have a clue." I know what you're thinking She says, "It's pressure, Don't know what to do." He says, Let's go sailing Let's go sailing Let's make an escape today Somewhere far away Where we both can sing and play She says, "I think you're crazy. Is there any danger? Are there other plans? Like bowling or deep sea fishing?" He says, "I don't think so. You have to know, you have to know." Let's go sailing Let's go sailing Let's make an escape today Somewhere far away Where we both can sing and play Let's go sailing Let's go sailing Let's go sailing Let's make an escape today Somewhere far away Where we both can sing and play

Time is very interesting Time can make yourself thinking Time can often drive you crazy Or time will make you feel so amazing It starts in the day When I wake up each morning My thoughts start to change Into a frightening state I go online And check the news in front of me Only to feel confused From the danger that I can see (Another voice revealing this dreamy atmosphere) Time is very interesting And time can make yourself thinking Time can twist your brain around Or time can bring a smile from a frown Now when I start the day When I wake up each morning I turn off the news To keep a positive state Like a song about facts We start to argue and wonder Why they come so late And wonder how long it matters (Another voice relaxing and turns into this dream) Time is very interesting And time can make yourself thinking Time can often drive you crazy Or time will make you feel so amazing Time is very interesting And time can make yourself thinking Time can twist your brain around Or time can bring a smile from a frown

So many people always asking for a change To myself it makes me feel really strange But you know I love you And you love me too I like to think of all The brilliant things you gave me And in my dreams You're always talking to me You know I love you And you love me too I know that you're not really here But in my mind I feel you near I feel you've never disappeared And in my dreams you tell me not to fear So many people wish They could have done the best While others feel very sad for the rest You know I love you And you love me too I understand you made your own choice It's true Others cry wishing they thought Of what to do You know I love you And you love me too I hear your music all the time And always making me feel fine I know, I know you never disappeared And in my dreams you tell me not to fear I know you're not really here But in my mind I feel you near I know, I know you never disappeared And in my dreams you tell me not to fear So many people always asking for a change But to myself it makes me feel really strange You know I love you And you love me too You know that I love you And you love me too

I wake up really early In the middle of the night I get myself some water To make me feel all right Back to my room with my favorite music on To help me go to sleep Before I know it I start to dream Which starts out kind of deep I move around like a ride in Disneyland Not knowing where I'll go A grocery store or to a concert hall Other times I don't even know It happens in the middle of the night You know it happens in the middle of the night I have these premonitions On things I never knew Sometimes it's not so easy To forget the things you do I find myself getting lost in crazy thoughts Not sure what I'll do next But then the dreams show me Many years from now So I wake up and go to work In these dreams I sing musicals Sometimes it's rock and roll James Brown or even Lady T It's unusual to know these things Happen in the middle of the night You know it happens in the middle of the night In the middle of the night You know it happens in the middle of the night It happens in the middle of the night You know it happens in the middle of the night In the middle of the night You know it happens in the middle of the night...

There's a special feeling I like to tell you about But it's something I can't describe There's a special thought I'm thinking about But I'm wondering about the right time I would like to say I love you But I also know what you are going through And I feel like you're free I feel like you're free I'll explain it You speak to me very softly And I'm wondering where it's coming from Not with words but a gentle breeze But it's not from the wind or the ocean You tell me to relax my mind And you also tell me I will be fine And I feel like I'm free I feel like I'm free Trying to figure out how I can say this I'll sing it If I'm in a peaceful state of mind I feel like I'm flying Well sometimes I don't know Why I feel this way But it's only natural and I'm not even trying There's a very special feeling I'm telling you about And a very special thing I'm thinking about But I feel like I'm free Listen, I don't know if you can help me out here But I'd like to hear you say it I just want you to know that I'm free That I'm free I feel like I'm free Like I'm free And I feel like I'm free Like I'm free Like I'm free

A change is here And I know it is very clear Out of all the thoughts I like to say Love is always here to stay A change is here And I know that the time is near Out of all the thoughts I want to say Love is always here to stay I hear the seas And I also feel the breeze The things you mean to me I hear the trees And I also feel the leaves The many things you mean to me A phrase that's heard Sometimes without any words Out of all the thoughts I like to say Love is always here to stay You tell me things Like bells they will always ring Out of all the thoughts I want to say Love is always here to stay I hear your songs And I always sing along All the words they speak to me I hear your thoughts And I also know there's a lot The many things you mean to me A change is here And I know it is very clear Out of all the thoughts I like to say Love is always here to stay A change is here And I know it is very clear Out of all the thoughts I want to say Love is always here to stay Love is here Love is here to stay Love is here Love is always here to stay...

Feeling hurts A tragic end I don't know how Completely understand (But the memories) (Remembering when) (When you would say to me) Will you remember me? Lively sounds Like crashing waves While I was walking outside in the rain (I can hear your soft voice) (When you would ask me) (In my dreams) Will you remember me? Time goes by But not for long Wonder why Don't know what went wrong But I really know That at the time when I am free Will you remember me? But the memories that you've said to me Will you remember me? The memories that you said to me Will you remember me?

(I'd like to know something) (Just to be very curious) (Let me ask you something) (Do you often sing or cry at night?) Well I always find myself Singing something special every night And I often cry at times When things are never going right Then I play a favorite song That makes me feel special every night In the dream he sings to me And I never really cry at night He asks me how I'm feeling I say I'm doing fine Then other times if I can't speak He understands what's on my mind He takes me for a walk Where we could have a talk Then when the dream is almost over He reassures me a lot (Free your mind and you'll find the time) To learn more To learn more (Free your mind and you'll find the time) To know more To know more And then I wake up feeling Happy all the time And I can still remember When he asked me that night Well I always find myself Singing something special every night And I often cry at times When things are never going right Then I play a favorite song That makes me feel special every night In the dream he sings to me And I never cry at night He sings a lovely song Very soft but not too long He knows when things are wrong And understands my thoughts It's like a string ensemble Playing something classical Or a love song that's beautiful And then I hear these voices singing (Free your mind) Free your mind (And you'll find the time) The time to learn more To learn more (Free your mind) Free your mind (And you'll find the time) To know more To know more Then I wake up feeling Happy all the time And I can still remember When he asked me that night Well I always find myself Singing something special every night And I often cry at times When things are never going right Then I play a favorite song That makes me feel special every night In the dreams he sings to me And I never cry at night I find myself singing something every night I often cry at times when things are never going right Every night

I think of being with you And knowing what to do Searching for answers To go with the questions that's on my mind The times you call my name And never feeling the same Knowing that somewhere I'm always feeling really fine The love I feel when you're here with me I imagine nature's sounds When I'm feeling low, thinking where to go You're exactly what I found I know you make it better I know you make it better I know you make it better I know you make it better... I think of the things we share And knowing how much we care Talking or writing ideas That come from our own thoughts And when I'm feeling sad You always make me feel glad Trying my best to forget What it was that made me mad I hear lots of things, like the sound of strings Every time you hold my hand When you're telling me that you love me I really understand I know you make it better I know you make it better I know you make it better I know you make it better... When I'm walking And you're helping me out To understand what things are about I can picture them All with my mind And when we dance and sing together Or just have an exciting time together I know you're with me all the time I know you make it better I know you make it better I know you make it better I know you make it better... I think of the things we share How much we care Remember the times you were there For the tears I cried, the tears I cried You know I know you make it better 'Cause I love you
