1. Beautiful Girl

Are you alright
Is there a light
Can you still hear me where you are
Are you so fine
That you can slip between the lines

You're such a Beautiful Beautiful Girl
You make the sky come down
You make the earth go round
You're such a Beautiful Beautiful Girl
And when you walk in the room
You make the winter bloom
You're such a beautiful Beautiful Girl

They want your soul
But you can float away
A flock of angels just above your head
Can hear your every sigh
And love you when you cry

You're such a beautiful Beautiful Girl
You make the sky come down
You make the earth go round
You're such a Beautiful beautiful Girl
And when you walk in the room
You make the winter bloom
You're such a beautiful beautiful Girl
You drive your daddy mad
You make your momma sad
You're such a beautiful, beautiful Girl
You make the wise unsure
You make the rich feel Poor…

2. Open Up Your Eyes

If I had the moon in a jar
I'd wanna share it with you
Or the light of a million stars
I'd wanna share it with you
The hidden knowledge to the way things are
I'd love to share that with you
But all I have is my heart

I can't control my feelings
I wanna lay with you nude at night
Open up your eyes and see I've never compromised my spirit
I can't persuade my conscience
I need you whether it's wrong or it's right
I know how to fly I've only
Waited for someone to teach me to steer it

If I could show the world on a screen
I'd wanna share it with you
The life story of every human being
I'd wanna share it with you
The inner mystery of the outer scheme
Oh I'd love I'd Love I'd love to
share that with you
But all I have is a dream

I can't control my feelings
I wanna lay with you nude at night
Open up your eyes and see I've never compromised my spirit
I can't persuade my conscience
I need you whether it's wrong or it's right
I know how to fly I've only
Waited for someone to teach me to steer it

If I had a place on the shore
I'd wanna share it with you
Or a backstreet paved in gold
Oh you know I'd share that with you
A time machine and an old riverboat
I'd wanna share it with you
But all I have is my soul
(better turn the lights on the runway)
I wanna lay with you nude at night

Open up your eyes, open up your eyes
open up your eyes darlin'
I wanna lay with you nude tonight

3. Meet Me On The Rooftop

Meet me on a rooftop
That's where I'm gonna be
This party is so old fashioned
Nothing is here for me
Meet me on a rooftop
I'll bring the radio
We can kick our shoes off
And dance really slowly
Drink a little moonshine
Have fun in clover time

I've been watching you through
a fascinating prism
Moving in and out of rhythm
Climb the fire escape with me
We can spin the world around from
a first class seat

Meet me on a rooftop
Ooh take a cab to the west side
Don't you worry about being so high up
Just lie beneath the city sky
See Ms. Liberty shine shine
I've been watching you through
a fascinating prism
Moving in and out of rhythm
Climb the fire escape with me
We can spin the world around from a first class seat

(You bring the candles and I'll bring the
Arnica oil, I'll massage your
mind until your spine uncoils)

You're enticing me with a scintillating schism
Dreaming in and out of living
Climb in my sleeping bag with me
You can spin my head around until
the birds come tweet tweet tweet

4. Walking on Thin Ice

Please take away from me
All these things I do not need
Use me to keep your conscience clean
Show me what to do
To sacrifice for you
I gladly give my life to you
I've wandered far enough to never have
given up too much and now I'm
offering you everything I am

Give me your hand
I'm walking on thin ice
And I know you can deliver me
More than good advice
Teach me with your deep love
How to look inside
And not be afraid
To shine

You are my destiny
The path I'm cutting tirelessly
And searching for you endlessly
Even when I'm
Surely in the heart of you
I still persist on collecting proof that
You are never known and though I feel you
I have grown to wonder if
I'll ever really understand

Give me your hand
I'm walking on thin ice
And I know you can deliver me
More than good advice
Teach me with your deep love
How to look inside
And not be afraid
To shine
'Cause I've been a fool
Pretending to be free
When all I could do was run away
When the spot light caught me
Heal me with your sweet love
'Cause I do believe
When I open my eyes in front of you
I see

Give me your hand
I'm walking on thin ice
And I know you can deliver me
More than good advice
Teach me with your deep love
How to look inside
And not be afraid
To shine
'Cause I've been a fool
Pretending to be free
When all I could do was run away
When the spot light fell on me
Heal me with your sweet love
'Cause I do believe
When I open my eyes in front of you
It's the truth I see

5. Blue

Blue you're always dancing in my hand
The way you toss your hips and things you've
said (moving like an angel)
Gazing out my window on the bus
(on Washington Square)
I saw New York crack a smile for us

Blue
I hope you like me too
I've been painting pictures on my wall of you

Blue I don't believe this is a tease
You could rule my world baby if you please
Skipping down the streets of Harlem
I hear your sweet soul calling me
If I could play the violin
I'd make a symphony in

Blue
I Hope you like me too
I've been painting pictures on my wall of you
Oh Blue Blue
Won't you come dance with me
There's a party in full swing
right down the street

When you strut like an Italian Movie star
Taking your Cappuccinos into the park
Everybody wants to know who you are
Writing poetry until it gets dark
Dropping your dirty laundry off once a week
The delivery boys compete
But you never let them past the stoop
'Cause you know that you're the
neighborhood scoop

6. SweetSexyWoman

I could worship you
And I do
Nobody knows how true I stay
Even when I pray
I'm making love to you
A tuneless song
Like the dawn
Nobody can hold onto you
Even though they do
They're wrong

Sweet sexy woman
I was born to love you
Now I'm hypnotized
I have traveled many lifetimes
In search of
Your golden eyes

Sweet sexy woman
I was born to love you
Now I'm mesmerized
I have waited many lifetimes
To look inside
Your golden eyes

Someday you will come to me
And I'll give you all that I am and everything
That's meant to be
My love is a fountain and you can drink free
Fill up on all of your needs and then some

Someday you will come to me
And I'll give you all that I am and everything
That's meant to be
My love is a mountain
And you can climb free
You can cross all of my peaks and then some

Someday you will come to me
And I'll give you all that I am and everything
That's meant to be

My love is an ocean
And you can come free
You can float over my body or
Lay down next to me

7. Surfer Girl

Let me be your guitar strummer
Catch a wave between your curls
All I need is one hot summer
To become my surfer girl
I don't wanna build a castle of sand without
your help
I don't wanna wade in the water with
anyone else
Let me be your diving partner
Teach you not to be afraid
To go deeper for the treasure that was
lost one stormy day

I'd rather be your surfer girl
Than have all the riches in the world
And I'd rather lie with you on the beach
Than suffer admirers at my feet
Why can't I be your surfer child?
And catch the stars as they
fall from your eyes
Sweep me out in your rip tide
Ride ride ride

Let me be your conga player
Serenade you on the street
Al the natives' gather there
In the evening by the sea
I'd rather be your surfer girl
Than have all the riches in this world
And I'd rather lie with you on the beach than
suffer admirers at my feet
Why can't I be your surfer child
And catch the stars as they
dull from your eyes
Sweep me out in your riptide
Ride ride ride

8. Adrian

Not 'cause you're older
Or 'cause you're better
Although you're older and you're better
Yes it's truly thrilling
But also 'cause you
Just let me love you

Adrian Adrian
This is my first time
So I hope you mean to love me well

I never looked for this
I never asked for that
No matter where I kiss your body
Keeps on kissing me back
It's good cause maybe you feel like
I do and maybe

Adrian Adrian
This is my first time
So I hope you mean to love me well

Come down from your high chair
And speak to me
This complicated situation does not fade me
All I wanna do is lie next to your heartbeat
And I would wait forever on this dirty street
for

Adrian Adrian
This is my first time
So I hope you mean to love me well

9. Soul Lover

Like your student
I hang on every word you say
Like your disciple
I don't have to stay
Like your heartbeat
There are things I've always known
Like your lover
I'm already part of your soul

No words can tell you what I feel
No looks can show you what I see
No one can teach me what is real
Nothing can take you away from me

Like your passion
I have waited for the key
To unlock the vision
That will set my soul free

No words can tell you what I feel
No looks can show you what I see
No one can teach me what is real
Nothing can take you away from me
No time can give me what I need
No way around what I've been through
No space can fill up the empty-
Ness in my soul when I want you

10. Angel of Darkness

You didn't chose me
You left me for the dark hearted one
Your shadow is bigger than your sun
I thought we were one

You didn't hear me
You listened to those beautiful lies
And my truth is still locked inside
Oh why did I give you the

Key to my heart
I don't have another and I
Wanna break these chains apart
My soul is free
To fly through the worlds above

But my feelings still wait for your love

I wake up crying
But in my dreams we're happy and bright
You laugh and everything's all right
What did you do with the

Key to my heart
I don't have another and I
Wanna break these chains apart
My soul is free
To fly through the worlds above
But my feelings still wait for your love
And I need to know why you
Seemed like the answer to my prayers
And all I had to do
Was call and you'd be there
Now my heart can see
What my mind can't bear to know
That the angel of darkness has got your soul.

11. You Make Me High

You make me cry
I don't even know why
I open so wide
to fit you
Sometimes I wanna leave you
cause I know you can't be true
I wanna believe you
Sometimes I almost do
But you will never change
And I don't wanna say goodbye
cause when I look in your eyes
You make me high
And I don't wanna be
just a speck on your horizon
So when you land this time I hope you'll let me know
Is this something that could grow
Or am I still alone
Cause when I'm with you I feel
That I've finally found a home
There may be no windows or a door
a ceiling or a floor
but you make me high
