Track Name: Sleepy River
Close your eyes my dear and dream
You’ll float downstream on Sleepy River
You can deny, life is but a smile
Asleep on Sleepy River

Feel the warm sun on your face
Those lazy waves on Sleepy River

Don’t you worry now,
About the life you knew before this
Don’t you know,
Your troubles and your woes can’t find you in your boat
So close your eyes and float down Sleepy River

So no one can wake you now
No one can wake you now
So close your eyes dream
You’ll float downstream upon Sleepy River
Track Name: Before the Dawn
E
When you’ve given all you got
A/E
When you’ve done the best you can
F#mi/E
When its all out on the table
D B/D#
and there is nothing left in your hand

E
When the beating of your heart
A/E
Flutters inside your chest
F#mi/E
When the words that could have resued you
D B/D#
have already been said

C#m
When your mind starts to panic
D/F#
like a sailor lost at sea
G
When your heart is beating SOS
E/G# E
With every fleeting beat


A
There is more

life beyond the struggle

There is more

life beyond the burdon you carry
A (walk a b c#) D E
and it won’t be very long
G B/F# E
before the dawn


E
When the Climb has left you weak
E/A
when the sky is weighting down
E/F#m
When the stars that could have guided you
D B/D#
are now shrouded in clouds

E
When the light that could have warmed you
E/A
in now blinding your sight
E/F#m
When the game that was so playful
D B/D#
has now turned into a fight
C#m D/F#
Don’t look at me with heavy eyes and say your satisfied
G E/G# E
This is just one shade in all the colors of your life

A
There is more
C#m
life beyond the struggle
F#m
There is more

life beyond the burden you carry
A (walk a b c#) D E
and it won’t be very long

before the dawn
Track Name: Feel Alive
Amidst the fading conversations
Swirling smoke amidst the night
A jug of wine between a few friends of mine
Swapping smiles cross the night like falling stars


Silhouettes made of these mountains
Fall like pedals from the sky
A soft guitar playing all the things you are
And a drunken choir wobbles out a tune

These are the moments
These are the moments of your life
Sparkling embers between the days and the nights
These are the moments of your life
Falling between the cracks
Of day into night and night into day
Into the fading light
The fading light
All my life
To feel so alive

Staring up
With our backs against the earth
Falling straight into the universe
Every thought that’s said
Wonder fills your head
Every star a tunnel to a new way of life

Reciting Kerouac and Martin Luther King
Watching the night fall thought the centuries
And every thought wonder fills your head
Every possibility coming true
In front of you


Chorus;
These are the moments
These are the moments of your life
Sparkling embers between the days and the nights
These are the moments of your life
Falling between the cracks
Of day into night and night into day
Into the fading light
The fading light
All my life
To feel so alive
Every time I come here I feel so alive
That I can’t describe how it feels to be alive
