Roses growing by my door Climbing up the vine All the thorns and pain obscured Roses shall divine Where we feel no pain And the love inside Where roses climb Roses shall divine Roses shall divine Holy mother Mother of gold Mother with stories Told and retold She felt our tears Heard our sighs And turned to gold Before our eyes She rose into the light She rose into the light She rose into the light



Cartwheels

Em
Bm
C
D
Come my one, look at the world Bird, beast, butterfly Girls sing notes of heaven Birds lift them up to the sky Spring is departing, spring is departing Her thoughts are darting Like a rabbit, like a rabbit 'cross the moon Shines of light over your hair As boys croon Pretty in pink, it makes me wonder What could ever bring you down I see tears falling From those eyes of brown Hearing a voice, you turn your head You vanish into the mist Of your thoughts And I Want to grasp What brings you down Open up those eyes of brown The world is changing Your heart is growing Hearing a voice, you turn your head Girls turn by ones, by twos Notes pour bad and tender Eradicate your blues The good world The good world Come my one, look around you Bird, beast, butterfly Girls sing notes from heaven Birds lift them up to the sky I see Brown eyes That see Girls turning Girls turning Cartwheels The good world The good whirl The good world The good whirl Come my one, look at your world Don't let it bring you down Come on, open for me Those eyes of brown I see Girls turning Cartwheels Cartwheels Cartwheels



Trespasses

G
Cadd9
G
Cadd9
Life is designed
G
Cadd9
With unfinished lines
G
D
G
That another sings
Each story unfolds Like it was gold Upon a ragged wing The bold and the fair Suffer their share He whispered to his kin All of my debts Left with regrets I'm sorry for everything
Am
G
Trespasses stretch like broken fences
Em
D
C
Winding as they may
Am
G
Trespasses stretch like broken fences
Em
F
C
D
Hope to mend them one day
And she pinned back her hair Shouldered with care The burdens that were his Mending the coat That hung on the post In heart remembering Trespasses stretch like broken fences Winding as they may Trespasses stretch like broken fences Hope to mend them one day And her time was to come Called to her son This your song to sing All of our debts Wove with regrets Upon a golden string And he found the old coat Hung on a post Like a ragged wing And took as his own The sewn and unsown Joyfully whistling



My Blakean Year

Am
C
Am
In my Blakean year, I was so disposed
Am
C
Am
Toward a mission yet unclear, advancing pole by pole
Dm
Am
E
Am
Fortune breathed into my ear mouthed a simple ode
F
Am
E
Am
One road is paved in gold, one road is just a road
In my Blakean year, such a woeful schism The pain of our existence, was not as I envisioned Boots that trudged from track to track, worn down to the sole One road is paved in gold, one road is just a road In my Blakean year, temptation but a hiss Just a shallow spear, robed in cowardice
E
Am
E
Am
Brace yourself for bitter flack, for a life sublime A labyrinth of riches, never shall unwind The threads that bind the pilgrim's sack, are stitched into the Blakean back
Dm
Am
E
Am
So throw off your stupid cloak, embrace all that you fear
Dm
Am
E
Am
For joy shall conquer all despair in my Blakean year

Yesterday I saw you standing there

With your hand against the pane

Looking out the window
Bm

At the rain
And I wanted to tell you That your tears were not in vain But I guess we both knew We'd never be the same Never be the same
A

Why must we hide all

These feelings inside?
A

Lions and lambs shall abide
Maybe one day we'll be strong enough To build it back again Build the peaceable kingdom Back again Build it back again Why must we hide all These feelings inside? Lions and lambs shall abide Maybe one day we'll be strong enough To build it back again Build the peaceable kingdom Back again Maybe one day we'll be strong enough To build it back again Build the peaceable kingdom Build it back again Build the peaceable kingdom Build it back again
