Track Name: Going Somewhere
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
Track Name: Can't Stand Still
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'
Track Name: Time for the Prize
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
Track Name: Sailing
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
Track Name: Time
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
Track Name: You Know I Love You
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
Track Name: In the Middle of the Night
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...
Track Name: Free
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
Track Name: Here to Stay
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...
Track Name: Will You Remember Me
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?
Track Name: At Night
(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
Track Name: Better
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
