Track Name: Ruby Lips of Wine
When I speak my heart's desire it disappears
Like smoke on the wind
Ruby lips of wine
Wrap me in the fire of your heart
Bridges are burning
Revelations growing
This constant yearning
Can you tell me why everything's never enough

Can you hear me calling...

I'm just a man
I live here on this planet with you
I'm looking for a heart of gold to ride the night away
I used to watch you dance
Poetry in motion
I always though I could read your mind

Spirits of earth and song
Serenade me now for I am your child
Spirits of fire and rain
Burn these illusions and wash all these fears from our hearts
My one true love
Childhood friend
Clay in my hands
Sing me to sleep and awaken me after the end
Timeless desire
Endless quest
When I am weary
I fall in her arms and she whispers that Music's her name
Ruby lips of wine I want to fall
Into the fire of your heart
Ruby lips of wine tell me why
Everything's never enough
It's no one's fault
It's no one's fault that no one I've found is enough
Track Name: Inconsistent Love
Your inconsistent love is driving me down
Your inconsistent love's got me singing the blues
Your inconsistent omnipresent love
Your inconsistent love makes me wonder why
Your inconsistent love makes me want to get high
Your inconsistent fascinating love

Walking through the park
Whispers in the dark
Talking in your sleep
The questions run so deep

Making love like beasts
Covert fantasies
Knocking on closed doors
Restless and wanting more

When you look that way
No man would turn away
I know how they feel
Your presence so unreal

These lonesome feelings swell
Overflowing wishing well
Solitary lighthouse glows
Windows open to your soul
You redefine and rationalize
Spent emotions caught in time
You know you know
That you're my only one

But your inconsistent love is driving me down
Your inconsistent love's got me singing the blues
Your inconsistent vacillating love

These lonesome feelings swell
Overflowing wishing well
Solitary lighthouse glows
Illuminates your darkling soul
You redefine and rationalize
Spent emotions caught in time
You know you know
You're my only one

But your inconsistent love makes me look to the sky
Your inconsistent love makes me want to get high
Your inconsistent omnipresent love
Your inconsistent modulating
Inconsistent fascinating
Inconsistent intoxicating love
Track Name: Live Again
He came down out of Jerusalem
On a stallion he did ride
A pilgrim knight from the British Isles
Come to stem the Moslem tide
He found himself assigned with a noble quest
To find the wooden cross
And bring it back into Christian hands
No matter what the cost

And he thought of good king Arthur
As he lay in Avalon
Of Lancelot and Galahad
And the glory that they'd won
And he remembered all his comrades
Who were lost in the Crusades
And as he came down out of a mountain pass
He though he heard them say

We'll live again...

So he went to where the river Jordan flows into the Dead Sea and moved South along the shoreline until he came to the great catacombs where legend said the cross had been hidden. But before going into the hills to begin his search he looked back the way he had come and riding up swiftly through the salty waves was a band of Saracen soldiers. Though he knew he was greatly outnumbered, and they were intent upon his death, honour dictated that he stand and fight!


As he turned to face his enemy
He thought of his sweet wife
And how he'd brought her sadness
When he chose the soldier's life
And in his mind he traced the lines of her face
And he brushed the tears away
He knew she had the strength to live
And love another day

And he wondered of these Holy Wars
Were they wrong or were they right
Must religions write their histories
Through military might
And as he thought about his children
His lips formed a battle cry
And as he drew his sword out
He saw his future in their eyes

I'll live again...
