Track Name: Everything Lost
Everything Lost
By Forrest Hill

I'm stuck on the outside looking in
To your heart of gypsy gold
Wondering when did I grow old?

I'm trapped on the inside looking out
Like a man that's filled with doubt
With nowhere left to go.

I'm breaking it out
Gonna tear the walls down
Nothing's gonna stop my life with you
Tired of pain
Breaking the chains
Gonna change my life for you
Everything lost, I’ve found in you
All that I’ve lost, I’ve found in you

I’m caught in the clouds looking down
Searching for your sacred ground
And a place to call our home

I’m tied to the bottom looking up
Holding high this victory cup
Let your love come fill it up.

I'm breaking it out
Gonna tear the walls down
Nothing's gonna stop my life with you
Tired of pain
Breaking the chains
Gonna change my life for you
Everything lost, I’ve found in you
All that I’ve lost, I’ve found in you

Takes more than faith
To keep us whole
With so much static burning on the line
Broken shadows they cage my minds
With splendid lies

I'm breaking it out
Gonna tear the walls down
Nothing's gonna stop my life with you
Tired of pain
Breaking the chains
Gonna change my life for you
Everything lost, I’ve found in you
Everything lost, I’ve found in you
All that I’ve lost, I’ve found in you
Everything lost, I’ve found in you
Track Name: Still Crazy Over You
Still Crazy Over You
By Forrest Hill

I like my body
When it’s next to you
I like your smile
When the sun comes shining through
I like the feel
Of the curve of your bones
I like to hold you
When the fire’s burning low.

Let’s make love by the window
Wake the neighbors once again
Forget our dreams of tomorrow
May this moment never end

I may be simply a romantic fool,
but honey I’m still crazy over you.

I like to walk with you baby
On an empty beach
I like the thrill
Of lips on rosy cheeks
I like Mendocino
And the California sun
I like when you whisper
Te quiero mi corazon

Let's break out the fine china
Eat our dinner on the lawn
Drink another toast to the sunset
Making love to the morning dawn.

I may be simply a romantic fool,
but honey I’m still crazy over you.

When the world is bad
And the news is sad
Like teardrops falling from the sky
Then you come my way
And brighten up my day
And the goodness on our lives.

Let’s make love by the window
Wake the neighbors once again
Forget our dreams of tomorrow
May this moment never end

I may be simply a romantic fool,
but honey I’m still crazy over you.

I may be simply a romantic fool,
but honey I’m still crazy over you.
Honey, I’m still crazy over you.
Honey, I’m still crazy over you.
Track Name: Cold Rain's Coming
A Cold Rain’s Coming
By Forrest Hill

There's thunder in the White House
And crying in the news
The atmosphere is burning
The futures got the flu
There's karma on the pavement
The bills are coming due
There's no use in hiding
Cause the jokers on the loose
We're looking at our cell phones
To see what we should do
Cause a cold rain’s coming,
a cold rain’s coming,
a cold rain’s coming

40 days
and 40 nights
The men in trench coats
Shake their gospel of light
And the wind can't hold
The spirit of their spite
And the sun won't save us
From the burning bush, tonight
We know something must happening
But can we get it right
Cause a cold rain’s coming,
a cold rain’s coming,
a cold rain’s coming

The chandelier is broken
There's darkness in the hall
The sidewalks are cracking
The writings on the wall
And who really knows
What the Germans saw
When the brown shirts were marching
To the siren's call
And you don't want to be here
When the ceiling falls
Cause a cold rain’s coming,
a cold rain’s coming,
a cold rain’s coming

Won't you come out and play
Won't you come out today
And dance in the rain while the rivers are flooding again

Come little children
Run while you can
The voice of the serpent
Is making its demands
And hate's not the answer
So love while you can
But don't turn a blind eye
To the power in the land
There's chaos in the temple
So come lend a hand
Cause a cold rain’s coming,
a cold rain’s coming,
a cold rain’s coming
Track Name: Like A Fire
Like A Fire
By Forrest Hill

Running like a madman
Lost is a strange land
Shaking in the dark
In a world on my own

Take another gamble
Burn another candle
Shed a little light
So I can find my way home

I’ve known poets who laugh and poets who weep
But you’re the only poet that speaks to me

You’re my heart at the edge of my soul
You’re the light when I can’t let go
You’re the love that turns to gold, inside of me
You’re the day when I’m feeling low
You’re the sun when my nights are cold
You’re love fills a hole inside of me, like a fire

Burning down the fences
Turning off the senses
Listen to the sounds
Churning deep in our hearts

Falling down to wake-up
Shedding all our make-up
Touching all the shadows
That can tear us apart

I’ve known prophets who dance and prophets who sing
But you’re the one of a thousand dreams

You’re my heart at the edge of my soul
You’re the light when I can’t let go
You’re the love that turns to gold, inside of me
You’re the day when I’m feeling low
You’re the sun when my nights are cold
You’re love fills a hole inside of me, like a fire

Everything is better, when your sweet gentle heart
Comes shining down on me
There’s nothing more to do, nothing more to say
And nothing more to be

You’re my heart at the edge of my soul
You’re the light when I can’t let go
You’re the love that turns to gold, inside of me
You’re the day when I’m feeling low
You’re the sun when my nights are cold
You’re love fills a hole inside of me, like a fire
Track Name: Birds Fly To Heaven
Birds Fly to Heaven
By Forrest Hill

I love you like the gentle sun
In the dawning sky
Pink against the pillow clouds
Anchored in my mind
The world turns bright from black to blue
And birds fly to heaven over you

I love you in the morning mist
Perched against the sky
Walking through a silent field
Strolling out of time
A tender kiss in the morning dew
And birds fly to heaven over you

Life is short
And there’s gold in our souls
Everything about you
Makes me feel so whole
Makes my spirit flow
Likes birds flying home

Geese in the clear blue sky
Announce your name in song
Touching this old wounded heart
Righting every wrong
The world turns bright from black to blue
And birds fly to heaven over you
A tender kiss in the morning dew
And birds fly to heaven over you
Track Name: Circle Of Life
Circle of Life
By Forrest Hill

I’m helpless and I’m free
Come dance the night with me
In this circle of life
We’re here and we’re gone
Come help me sing this song
In this circle of life

I’m not sure of anything my love
Besides you and me, and only that
Come my angle darling, let’s fly into the sun
Let’s spread our wings and never turn back

I’m helpless and I’m free
Come dance the night with me
In this circle of life
We’re here and we’re gone
Come help me sing this song
In this circle of life

We can be what we want to be, my dear
Let’s dare not to say yes or no
Crazed and confused like an octopus’ dream
With grace in the circle of our soul

I’m helpless and I’m free
Come dance the night with me
In this circle of life
We’re here and we’re gone
Come help me sing this song
In this circle of life

Let’s go down to the shore tonight my dear
Dance beneath the stars ‘til the dawn
If we should die before the morning breaks
The source of our love will carry on and on

I’m helpless and I’m free
Come dance the night with me
In this circle of life
We’re here and we’re gone
Come help me sing this song
In this circle of life

In this circle
Circle of life
In this circle
Circle of life
Track Name: The Great Divide
The Great Divide
By Forest Hill

There's gold in my pockets
And rain in my coat
And I standing on the turnpike
With my head all full of hope
I'm dying like hell to see you
And I don't care if I die
Thumbing home across the great divide.

The sun on the pavement
Bleeds tears from my eyes
While clouds cast a shadow
As I wait here for a ride
Out in the distance
A truck door opens wide
To take me home across the great divide

Roll on to you
Roll on to you
Roll on till I reach the other side
Roll on to you
Roll on to you
Roll on to heal this restless mind

I'll go walking through the shadows
On the Appalachian plains
Crawl through the fields
Of the amber waves of grain
Riding down the Rookies
To the California side
Gonna meet your there
Across the great divide.

Roll on to you
Roll on to you
Roll on till I reach the other side
Roll on to you
Roll on to you
Roll on to heal this restless mind

As I stand here before you
With my heart raised to the sky
And feel your gentle touch remove
The thorns from my side
There's no darkness upon us
Just stars in the sky
Forever yours across this great divide.
Forever yours across this great divide.
Forever yours across this great divide.
Track Name: Real Thing
Real Thing
By Forrest Hill

Like a flower in the rain
I cover my pain
Sowing seeds of desire

I'm just a child who wants it all
Chasing waterfalls
Then watching the die

A shadow in time
In your enteral flame
The spark in the embers
The heart with no name

Your love's the real thing
Yeah, your love's the real thing
Uh, your love's the real thing
It's all I'll ever need

Treading softly in the night
I grab for the light
Like a moth circles fire

Morning lifts the creeping thorns
Again I'm reborn
Felling your embrace

Falling in grace
To your eternal flame
That burns off the ashes
Of this life you have saved

Your love's the real thing
Yeah, your love's the real thing
Uh, your love's the real thing
It's all I'll ever need

My mind is like a blistering storm
Craving for shadows, always crying for more
What’s real is the love in my heart
Here for you now, here from the start

Your love's the real thing
Yeah, your love's the real thing
Uh, your love's the real thing
It's all I'll ever need

Your love's the real thing
Yeah, your love's the real thing
Uh, your love's the real thing
It's all I'll ever need
Track Name: Let's Fall Down
Let’s Fall Down
By Forrest Hill

There’s a tear in my dresser drawer
Full of fear from a thousand wars
I keep my shame behind these iron doors
Afraid to let you in
Now I remember there was a time
When we would hold each other and cry
And in our sorrow, we came alive
Let’s fall down again

Let’s fall down again
Let our love descend
Into the garden of the pale moon light
Past the walls of original sin
Let’s fall down, fall down again

I’ve seen that sorrow upon you face
Take your thoughts to another place
And in that silence, you just float away
With nothing to defend
And I just sit there in my pain and know
The truth we hide kills our very soul
Love is found where the dark weeds grow
Let’s fall down again

Let’s fall down again
Let our love descend
Into the garden of the pale moon light
Past the walls of original sin
Let’s fall down, fall down again

And the clock is beating out the time
With the radio tonight.
Is it better to deny, then break down and cry
And put an end to all this fussy and fighting

We can pretend like we just meet
Ignore the tune of the dark poet
But if we part we may both regret
The words we never said
So come on girl let’s take that ride
Under the stones where the damp earth lies
And put an end to these alibies
Let’s fall down again

Let’s fall down again
Let our love descend
Into the garden of the pale moon light
Past the walls of original sin
Let’s fall down, fall down again
Past the walls of original sin
Let’s fall down, fall down again
Track Name: Free
Free
By Forrest Hill

Can we stand
On broken dreams
And know all we need is right here

Can we pray
Not to heaven
But to open our minds and see clear

Come along with me
We got to be here
Cause the past is gone
And the futures never here
Come along with me
We got to be here
If we want to be free

Can we see
Our cup half empty
And know there's nothing we lack

Can we feel
Our heart's break open
Knowing we can never go back

Come along with me
We got to be here
Cause the past is gone
And the futures never here
Come along with me
We got to be here
If we want to be free

There's a world
Without wrong or right
I'll meet you there
in the shadows of night
Precious love
Won't you wait for me
I'll meet you there
In the dark blue sea

Can we touch
The truth of this moment
And know all we need is right here

Can we love
Ourselves and each other
And see there is nothing to fear

Come along with me
We got to be here
Cause the past is gone
And the futures never here
Come along with me
We got to be here
If we want to be free

Cause the past is gone
And the futures never here
Come along with me
We got to be here
If we want to be free
If we want to be free
If we want to be free
Track Name: Anything Can Happen
Anything Can Happen
By Forrest Hill

Anything can happen at anytime
Life's a blind poet, without a rhyme
Don't think you can control it, or stop on a dime
Cause anything can happen at anytime

Anything can change in the blink of an eye
Worldly winds blow the clouds in the sky
Hope and fear are just two sides of the pie
And anything can happen at anytime

Who know what lies ahead?
There’s not a forecast on which we can depend
Where were going I don’t know
My love for you will never die, will never grow old

Can we hear the secret sound inside?
The one holy love, they call divine
Jump into life while we’re still alive
Cause anything can happen at anytime

I don’t take for granted this mystic love
Each day a gift born on the wings of a dove
I’ve known you forever and thousand years
Held your heart close with kisses and tears

Anything can happen to anyone
The good and the evil, the old and the young
You can’t control it, what’s done is what’s done
Cause anything can happen to anyone.
You can’t control it, can’t stop on a dime
Cause anything can happen anytime.
Cause anything can happen anytime.
Cause anything can happen anytime.
Track Name: One Better
One Better
By Forrest Hill

Hey love, you’re shooting stars’ above
You’re the raising of the mid-night sun
Together, a simple you and I
Two tear drops smile in time
Making this world one better

Hey love, I’m walking on a tender line
Felling every moment that time leaves behind
Each breathe, a kiss upon your lips
Your heartbeat and finger tips
Making this world one better

Fall, falling down
There’s a fine line
Where you can’t get up and you can’t be found
And your love is a tranquil sea
And your love is the air I breathe
Carrying me on a thin line

Hey love, we’re running in this mortal race
With our empty pockets and smiles filled with grace
Two waves, we gently rise and fall
Together we can meet it all
Making this world one better

Fall, falling down
There’s a fine line
Where you can’t get up and you can’t be found
And your love is a tranquil sea
And your love is the air I breathe
Carrying me on a thin line

Fall, falling down
There’s a fine line
Where you can’t get up and you can’t be found
And your love is a tranquil sea
And your love is the air I breathe
Making this world one better
Making this world one better
Making this world one better
