I used to sit and write my songs

on different kinds of days

they held the secrets of my heart

and my moods that often sway

but now I know where I belong

and where I want to stay

it's in the dawn of this eternal change

as I move along my way

 

There's no one to follow who feels like I do

you've all got ideas

you've all got your issues

there's no one to follow and learn points of view

so I'm left here to witness

the rise of my truth

 

I still sit and look at things

and I wish on falling stars

'cause I've always known that simple dreams

are pathways through the dark

and now I know where I belong

and where I want to stay

it's in the dawn of this eternal change

as I move along my way

it's in the dawn

of this eternal change

as I move

along

my way 

  

 

Black and White

 

I used to sit and look at things

in terms of black and white

I weighed the facts and figures

in terms of wrong or write

but now as the birds in my backyard sing

it's neither dark nor light

it's the dawn that is eternal

and it's neither day nor night
