EARLY SONGS HOLD A TORCH UP IN THE SHADOWS OF FAME GOSPEL BRIDGE DA WRAG SILLY-SLY SONGS


From HERE
to
JUBILEE


Beyond Tomorrow

I'm looking beyond tomorrow, there is nothing here, now, for me
When you try to respond, your sorrow surely overwhelms what you see
Wrapping your feelings up in a shroud
Wrapping your feelings up in a shroud

No, I can't take so much despair, flung about so casually
Vain tongues tauntingly touch the air, I wonder if, at last, you'll see
My love for you is like a cloud
My love for you is like a cloud

Sometimes you see me, and you curse the rain
You wish you could be free, yet you curse the pain
You wish you could start to get to the calm
Don't you know? Your heart is your healing balm

I'm getting tired of the headlines, you know? They're such a mental cage
I'm getting tired of the deadlines, the scramble for the latest rage
'Cause it's still the same old social whirl
'Cause it's still the same old social whirl

I'd rather be glad and tuneful, than wear a laurel victor's wreath
Or, be force-fed by the spoonful. Just watch when winner's bare their teeth
No, don't you gnash yours when you see lips curl
No, don't you gnash yours when you see lips curl

Sometimes you see me, and you curse the rain
You wish you could be free, yet you curse the pain
You wish you could start to get to the calm
Don't you know? Your heart is your healing balm

There is no bridge over the river, the widest one of all up ahead
There are no arrows in the quiver, of the dark hunter, who rules the dead
They who stir to the wordless wailing, the war-maimed children make at the Wall
Are surely building a boat worth sailing. Hark...you CAN hear them, answer the CALL

If the best of your spirits sink, from all the endless craving
Grasping for you and you still think that your own life is worth saving
'Cause you still don't want to be a slave
No, you just don't want to be a slave

There's a land beyond the river, over the hills and past the strife
It's become time to deliver this news of yet another life
That's known only to the truly brave
It's known only to the truly brave

Sometimes you see me, and you curse the rain
You wish you could be free, yet you curse the pain
You wish you could start to get to the calm
Don't you know? Your heart is your healing balm
Don't you know? Don't you know? Don't you know?
Your heart is your healing balm
