LYRICS "TIME"
SUMMER

lyrics by Robert Taylor, music by Nicholas Tesluk.

morning wakes me, birds a-calling
sun rays on me, rays a-falling
bright new morning, worlds a-calling
calling out its song to me

summer soft and warm
reaching out to me
summer days of blinding lights
summer dreams in satin nights
summer, summertime melt me all away

morning wakes me, birds a-calling
sun rays on me, rays a-falling
bright new morning, worlds a-calling
calling out its song to me

SONG OF PAN

lyrics by Robert Taylor, music by Nicholas Tesluk.

listen now, Great Pan he calls us
from the green wood in his grove
‘neath the waxing moon above us
hear his clear flute sweet and low
hear his clear flute sweet and low

follow in the dance he’s leading
circle ‘round the fires glow
come, let’s drink the wine he pours us
from the tangled vines that grow
from the tangled vines that grow
from the tangled vines that grow

listen now, Great Pan he calls us
from the green wood in his grove
‘neath the waning moon above us
hear his clear flute sweet and low
hear his clear flute sweet and low

Dèjá Vu

lyrics by Robert Taylor, music by Nicholas Tesluk.

was it in another lifetime, that we met, held hands and talked?
when our hearts beat, both in rhythm to the cadence of our walk
our lifetimes seem so many as though falling through a dream
and I missed your warm soft hand in mine, all these lifetimes in between

last lifetime that I held you tight, we kissed in evening’s rain
but how is it in this lifetime that I can’t recall your name?

the night we watched the harvest moon, entangled in the trees
and the silken strands of your long blond hair danced to an autumn breeze
we ran and laughed on midnight’s shore, the salt mist of the sea
but was it really you, could it really have been me?

ah.....

last lifetime that I held you tight, we kissed in evening’s rain
but how is it in this lifetime that I can’t recall your name?

the green grass on the hillside, the flowers around your neck
your smiling eyes by starlight as we lingered on the deck
of the silver-sailed galleon that rode forgotten waves
how many lifetimes have we lost, how many countless days?
how many countless days? How many countless days?

UNIVERSAL SOLDIER
( from The Conquistador Cantata )

lyrics and music by Robert Taylor

can you hear my boots come marching?
can you feel my cannons roar?
oh do you see my banners waving?
can you hear my battle call?

I have held the sword of victory
within my calloused hand
I have spawned your hybrid children
in each conquered ravished land

I have died ten thousand noble deaths
on ten thousand distant shores
in your mountains, through your deserts
I have waged my endless war

can you hear my boots come marching?
can you feel my cannons roar?
oh do you see my banner's waving?
do you hear my battle call?

SLIPPING AWAY

lyrics and music by Robert Taylor

sunny days of summer
passing days of youth
chasing down the answers
to find some truth now
to find some truth

Mary's got a boyfriend
Johnny's loving Sue
all their hearts a-flutter
what love can do now
what love can do

climb the gnarled branches
of an apple tree
try to pick an apple
skinning your knee now
skinning your knee

sliding down a hillside
on a winter's day
funny how the time flies
slipping away now
slipping away

TIME

lyrics and music by Robert Taylor and CC

and now our time comes
and now our time comes

there will come a time
we said
but time only goes
the fading of the rainbow
the closing of a rose

we’ll make the time
we vowed
but times already made
impatient as the twilight
elusive as the shade

and now our time comes
and now our time comes

we’ll take the time
we both agreed
but time is only lived
the clock unwinds
and autumn leaves
run riot in the wind

and time just slips away
they say
like golden grains of sand
and the days and nights
we held so tight
escape from out our hands

and now our time comes
and now our time comes

and now our time comes
and now our time comes
and now it has gone
and now it has gone

AND NEVER RETURN

lyrics and music by CC

a different world waits for me
a hideaway from all that’s wrong
across the waves to enchanted isles
far away and there we’ll stay

we all live troubled lives
but I’d rather stay here in the dark
you like the west but I go north
there is more than one true love

I’m just passing by and people change
hearing you say “people change”

and then you blackened all the stars
and then you never looked back
and then you sent the gods away
and then they never came back
and then I saw you in my dreams
and then you never came back

I am still the same but people change
hang on, it’s gone and people change

SHORES OF YESTERDAY

lyrics and music by CC

here I watch the midnights go and all this searching has to stop
and how long this road appears and how uncertain in the night
I’ve got so far to go and oh so little time
though I may regret tomorrow I’d say yesterday was mine

so let us sing of the tortured heart
so let us revisit places past
so let us dream of chances lost
so let us sail on ships of gold

here the years rush like blood and what we love we hurt the most
adrift on that special day I glanced through to another world
but considering this and reflecting that, promises broken and nothing else left
what is real is better than what was dreamt, but still I can dream

we will never know

so let us sing of the tortured heart
so let us revisit places past
so let us dream of chances lost
so let us sail on ships of gold
to the shores of yesterday

A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM

lyrics and music by CC

if it’s good to live then it’s better to be asleep dreaming

has it all gone or will I fall awake
will I never return to be the same again

droplets of memory are all that remain
strange faces promising new life

does the reward justify the loss
all beauty burned

burned like bridges I once crossed
7 years ago often more

has it all gone or will I fall awake
will I never return to be young again

since it does not matter when
why could I not die then

if it’s good to live then it’s better to be asleep dreaming
if it’s good to live then it’s better to be asleep dreaming

I came to leave I start to bleed
a dream within a dream

another wave breaks on a foreign shore
a dream within a dream

all the pain that comes down on me
a dream within a dream

the second side of My Boy
a dream within a dream

nothing nothing nothing nothing
a dream within a dream

a hideaway unseen
a dream within a dream

why could I not die then
why could I not die then
