The Wandering Kind (Prelude)

[No lyrics]

. . .


There's a pale winter moon in the sky coming through my window
And the park is laid out like a bed below
It's a cold dark night and my heart melts like snow
And the bells of New York City tell me not to go

It's always this time of year that my thoughts undo me
With the ghosts of many lifetimes all abound
But from these mad heights I can always hear the sound
Of the bells of New York City singing all around

Stay with me oh stay with me
Refuge from these broken dreams
Wait right here oh wait with me
On silent snow filled streets

Sing to me one song for joy and one for redemption
And whatever is in between that I call mine
With the street lamp light to illuminate the gray
And the bells of New York City calling me to stay
The bells of New York City calling me to stay

. . .


Galileo fell in love
("As if Galilean born")
And he wondered what in heaven who invented such a joy
But the question got a better of his scientific mind
And to his blind and dying day
He looked up high and often sighed
And sometimes cried

Who puts the rainbow in the sky?
Who lights the stars at night
Who dreamt up someone so divine?
Someone like you and made them mine?

Love can make you ask spoke funny questions now and then
But just remember the alternatives
For I remember when I was lonely

And unhappy and my lips were cold as ice
But you kissed me and good heavens now I'm here in paradise

So if ever I am not kissing you or looking in your eyes
I won't be blind and I won't cry
I'll look up and gladly sigh, and thank the guy

Who puts the rainbow in the sky?
Who lights the stars at night?
Who dreamt up someone so divine?
Someone like you and made them mine?
Someone like you and made them mine?

. . .


Ora di andarmene
Il momento che
Questo cuore teme
È difficile
Un coltello che
Ti lacerà

Credimi
Fa più male dentro
Il dover andarsene
Sapere che
Tu soffri come soffro
Quando è l’ora dell’addio

Se avolte pensi che
La mia scelta sia
Segno che non ti amo
Non odiarmi mai
Vado per la tua
Felicità

Credimi
Fa più male dentro
Il dover andarsene
Sapere che
Tu soffri come soffro
Quando è l’ora dell’addio

Come è difficile ignorare le memorie di una vita
Tutto mi ricorda come sei parte di me

Credimi
Fa più male dentro
Il dover andarsene
Sapere che
Tu soffri come soffro
Quando è l’ora dell’addio

. . .


Over mountains and sky-blue seas
Are great circles
Will you watch for me?
The sweetest feeling I've got inside
I just can't wait to get lost in your eyes

And all these words that you meant to say
Held in silence, day after day
Words of kindness that our poor hearts crave
Please don't keep them hidden away

Sing it out so I can finally breathe in,
I can finally take in all you say
Holding out for something I believe in
All I really need today
I want to free your heart
I want to see your heart
Please don't keep your heart hidden away

You're a wonder, how bright you shine
A flickered candle in a short lifetime
A secret dreamer that never shows
If no one sees you, then nobody knows

And all these words you were meant to say
Held in silence day after day
Words of kindness that our poor hearts crave
Please don't keep them hidden away

Sing it out so I can finally breathe in,
I can take in all you say
Reaching out for someone I believe in
All I really need to today
I want to feel your love,
Can you reveal your love?
Please don't keep your love hidden away

I want to free your heart,
I want to see your heart,
Please don't keep your heart hidden away

. . .


retournons avant la guerre
avant la fin
avant le besoin de toutes ces prieres
aucun mal
aucun bien
aucun mot croche
ni mots malins que l'on dit quand on n'sait pas

sous un ciel bleu, ciel sans nuage
retournons la-bas
sans orage
retournons la-bas
au jardin des sans pourquoi

je t'ai vue te promener la-bas
sous l'arc-en-ciel
brillante comme une etincelle dans la nuit
ou je t'ai vue aussi
tombant du ciel
comme une larme de st laurent, disparaissant
dans un ciel blue, ciel sans nuage
retournons la-bas
sans orage
retournons la-bas
au jardin des sans pourquoi

. . .


For all the times I tried for this
And every chance at you I missed
I’ve been known to go my way
But I confess it made me miss you more
I drew my line across the sand
And set my flag in no-man’s-land
But here I am here I am, the one-man band
With a song that’s mean for two

And there is a light from a higher window
Shining down on you tonight
And the music floats on the breeze
Bringing an easier time
And all of our cards are on the table
Tell me what you want to do
Just don’t tell me that it’s too late
For me to love you

How perfect we were meant to be
Our warm and silent symmetry
It’s times like these when all,
All we need is to be reminded
Oh, and I’ve flown a thousand miles
To empty rooms and crowded aisles
And we went from cathedral bells
To show-and-tell and wish-you-wells
And I still look at you and I am blinded
I am blinded

Because there is a light from a higher window
Shining down on us tonight
And the music floats on the breeze from an easier time
And all of our cards are on the table
Tell me what you want to do
Just don’t tell me that it’s too late
Don’t tell me that it’s too late now
Just don’t tell me that it’s too late
For me to love you

. . .


Lately, I've been the quiet one waiting searching the lines of the songs, you wait for me. Sailing into the misty air fading bound for I don't know where, when I'm there I'll see.
And if I walk away, please follow me. If I walk away, please follow me.
Weightless, drifting through stars I got faithless __________ from my dreams. Lately all your sweet rhymes recreate me, now comes the time when I'll need your truth to see.
And if I walk away, please follow me. If I walk away, please follow me.
Walk away, let the fear fall away, into the fire you make, scarlet and gold. Walk away, head for the light of day, follow a brighter way, out of the cold and dark, down to the warm, bright spark __________ all might start something.
So if I walk away, please follow me. If I walk away, please follow me.
Fragments, shells of a long ago lifetime, faces that once were mine, thrown doen by the sea.
If I walk away, please follow me. If I walk away, would you please follow me.

. . .


I've tried to hold this back so long
and we're always such a good thing when its gone
would it be alright if we just left our heads tonight

take me away from this old game
of saying we're both too much the same
would it be alright if i just stayed with you tonight
and before I go, will i ever see you again

she said love only knows
love only knows if we'll give into fear and choose life undercover
she said love only knows if its special enough that we'll choose one another
choose each other

You were the secret I loved keep
the name i would only sing in my sleep
would it be alright if we just lose ourselves tonight
and if you let go, will you reach out again

she said love only knows
love only knows if we'll give into fear and choose life undercover
she said love only knows its special enough that we'll choose one another
we'll choose each other
and i can't breath with out you and i don't, and I can't live without love and I won't... and I won't

Love only knows if we'll give into fear and choose life undercover
she said love only knows if its special enough that we'll choose one another
oh, love only knows how your arms pull me in like the tide pulls me under
she said love only knows just how long we can run before we lose each other

and we need each other
and i can't live without you and I won't

. . .


Vim amar você ate o final
Da chuva que navega nosso corpo tropical
Espero amar você ate durar
A lua que esclarece esse sol sem descansar jamais
Amar o quanto precisar que ame
E então recuse a escuridão te amo
Pra que chorar
Chorar é fim
Você existe em mim
Vim servi amor e aterrissar
Os anjos dos meus versos
Pra você nao me deixar de amar
Serra que em deus os versos nascem assim
Como em toda primavera nascem flores
Pra mimar jardim
Amar o quanto precisar que ame
E então recuse a escuridão te amo
Pra que chorar
Chorar é fim
Você existe em mim
A areia lambe o sal
Ja passou o temporal e a solução so você e eu
A alma bebe o mar que vazou do coração
E você me faz me fazer feliz
Amar o quanto precisar que ame
E então recuse a escuridão te amo
Pra que chorar
Chorar é fim
Você existe em mim

Fallen brother
He's a fallen husband
He's about to be woken in his hospital bed
He doesn't want to rest
He just wants to run
And he's tired of being told that he's the lucky one

Caped crusader, she's a new born leader
But you should see her when her daughter's on the phone
And she wipes the tears away and she laces up because
there's still Hell to pay
And it sure feels feels like Hell today
Today

And she says...
You see these hands?
They're bruised and brown
They're yours alone
Hold on love
We're still going down
Hold on love
We're still fighting
At home
The war at home

Innocence behind his broken expression
He's a child of mercy
He's our unlearned lesson
And he's trying to wake up from this wilderness his world has
now become
He's reaching out to those he's running from

And he says...
You see these hands?
They're bruised and brown
They're yours alone
Hold on now
We're still going down
Hold on now
We're still fighting

And it's
One step forward, two steps back
This is all who are marching
One step forward, two steps back
This is young and old
One step forward, two steps back
Through the void of the silence
You are not alone

You see these hands?
They're a million strong
They are yours now
Hold on now
We're all going down
Hold on now
We're all fighting at home
The war at home

. . .


Morti irrequieti somnum reperiat et lux memorandi nostri eum
porteat ad pacem aeternam

May the restless dead find sleep, and may the light of our remembering
guide them to an everlasting peace

. . .


All the towers of ivory are crumbling
And the swallows have sharpened their beaks
This is the time of our great undoing
This is the time that I'll come running

Straight to you
For I am captured
Straight to you
For I am captured
One more time

The light in our window is fading
The candle gutters on the ledge
Well now sorrow, it comes a-stealing
And I'll cry, girl but I'll come a running

Straight to you
For I am captured
Straight to you
For I am captured
Once again

Gone are the days of rainbows
Gone are the nights of swinging from the stars
For the sea will swallow up the mountains
And they sky will throw thunder-bolts and sparks

Straight at you
But I'll come a running
Straight to you
But I'll come a running
One more time

Heaven has denied us its kingdom
The saints are drunk howling at the moon
The chariots of angels are colliding
Well, I'll run, babe, but I'll come running

Straight to you
For I am captured
Straight to you
For I am captured
One more time
