Allow me someday to touch you.The way that you've all touched me.
Every step I take, I am alive. I am Life.
Do I have to dig? Do I have to prod? Reach into your chest And pull your feelings out? Are you dancing dead? Or maybe walking toast? If you feel anything Be brave Come forth Let it show. Tell me what d'you think of life? Tell me do you think at all?
He is broken, far from free Words were spoken, 'tween him and me: I had friends, yes, I was admired I'm so old now, feel so tired. Well he walks to the gate and he looks behind at life in rewind And wishes he had known these things while still alive.
I can see the purpose now and all I've learned All the roads and where they've turned I can see, I can see everything, the total truth I'm ready for another youth. Going to fly
My time's too short to waste on Things you say without your brain. Will you paint works of art When you speak? When you open your mouth Will I weep?

With all the confidence I have It seems I could go forever But forever has no rest-stops And my endurance sometimes fails Hold me, hold me, hold me in your arms Can you tell me how I'm gonna make it
I am transparent An open book; There's no choice in the matter But the breath from my mind Is living air, And the notes from my heart Are what I share. Words weren't made for cowards.
I wish I could promise I'll Be there when you dream I wish that when you spoke to me I'd know what you mean But you can't bring me comfort By filling up my eyes They don't stay dry Hard as I try Can't figure why Made I this choice
