May Peace Be With You

May peace be with youon your way

Peace be with you

and that its all okay

May peace, love, and happiness

find you

May all of your dreams come true
I see you sleeping

through this night

Hoping that you

can find the light
May you have

some good dreams

Maybe you can catch a ride

on some of my old moonbeams
I hope you wake up

in the middle of those dreams

And I hope it’s everything

that it seems
May peace be with you

on your way

Peace be with you

and that its all okay

May peace, love, and happiness

find you

May all of your dreams come true
I wish you well

on all of your endeavors

May you find the sweetest fruits

of all your efforts
No one but you

and then little old me

could ever be

oh, so very happy
At your success

Your success
May peace be with you

on your way

Peace be with you

and that its all okay

May peace, love, and happiness

find you

May all of your dreams come true
May peace be with you

on your way

Peace be with you

and that its all okay

May peace, love, and happiness

find you

May all of your dreams come true

Wait For Me

A shroud falls over the sun
My desert is cold

I’ve nowhere left to run

I only know what I’ve been told
The city waits for me

And I’m late as usual

The lights too bright for me to see

And I just feel so damned small
I’m coming

I’m coming

I’m coming to you

I’m rushing

I’m rushing for you

Just wait for me
The home fires will continue to burn

As I put my feet to the ground

I pocket my mistakes and learn

And try to lock up what I’ve found
I picture you standing there

Your hopes dashing on me

When no one seems to care

There’s just too much for a blind man to see
I’m coming

Honey, I’m coming

I’m coming for you

I’m rushing

Baby, I’m rushing

I’m rushing into you

Just wait

For me
Life never seems to go as planned

Complications like grains of sand

I’ll swim a thousand miles of sea

Just to get to you and me

Just wait a little longer

Just wait a little bit longer

It will only make our love that much stronger

Stronger

Stronger
I’m coming

I’m coming

I’m coming for you

I’m rushing

I’m rushing

I’m rushing for you

Just wait for me
The streets are silenced now with sound

I see you at the end of the road in the distance

My smile grown so wide at what I’ve finally found

Everything comes with a shot of persistence
I’m here

I’m here

I’m here for you

Come here

Come here

Come here to me

Just be with me
Just be with me

Roads

Matches to candlesWater to life

A hand to a hand

Me to you

You to me
A look to the sun

There’s relativity

A prayer to the stars

There’s serendipity 

Then there’s you and me
Rowers paddle the water

Forcefully moving onwards

Sailors wait for their wind

To take them away

Then there’s us
Drifting in time and space 

After the event horizon

Our love grows faster and faster

As we are pulled forward

We see where it takes us
Pens to papers

Feet to paths

Eye to eye

Me and you

You and I 
Broken stopwatches

Of endless possibilities

Changed plans and schemes

Brings new responsibilities

Then there’s you, then there’s me
Hikers climb mountains

For better a better view

Explorers keep moving on

Trying to find something new

Then there’s me, then there’s you
A line to the sand

A fence to the border

A fork to the road

Me and you

You and me

We’re not that different

The Empress

You sit a top of the ship in the captains chair

It’s sort of like the weather

Your first mate doesn’t find it very fair

So high and mighty you wave that staff around

Might as well be a sword

10,000 dead lovers is what you’ve found

You’re as stubborn as a concrete block in a vice

It’s not nice

Not very nice

Somebody once loved you

And my oh my

How your ego grew

You must have been somebody’s princess

You say you would have gone to the ball

But that you didn’t have the dress

And in the jungles of India

The Tiger hides behind the leaves

A wise man appreciates

All that he receives

Empress

Empress

You’re too tough to impress

Empress, Empress

You wield a sword

Not knowing its power

Sometimes when you plant a seed

It doesn’t always come up a flower

Only a woman

Can truly make a man

Suffer

Suffer

Suffer

You just had to be somebody’s princess

Before you kicked the casket

And laid his soul to rest

And when they got recruited by you

To the Sadie Hawkins dance

The men were unwittingly reduced

Into your planned obsolescence

And in the jungles of India

The Tiger hides behind the leaves

A wise man appreciates

All that he achieves

Empress

Empress

You command an audience

Empress, Empress

I see that look upon your eyes

Not knowing all the power

Sometimes when I plant a seed

It doesn’t always come up a flower

I hurt myself too many times

All that can be grasped by love

Can make you

Suffer

Suffer

And when the albatross and the eagle

Swoop in upon the bow of the ships

Another Siren wails her song

With the poison of promises

Glued to her lips

Something you didn’t count on

Another woman in the sea

As long as there are sirens and sailors

Nobody will be ever be free

And at the bottom of the ocean

A love is locked in time

A kind of love

that isn’t yours

And it isn’t mine

Empress
