Terminal Station Lyrics


ROCKY SHORES

These rocky shores do so much more
than the holding, the holding of the tides
just like shoulders of yours, have always been there
every time, I've smiled or cried

Those mountain peaks I see far away
reflecting, reflecting all the light
are no match to the granite strength
you've shown me, shown me all my life

Don't go away
don't go away
I need you to stand beside me
every single day
and be my rocky shore

There's field of green, all around me
but today, it looks like there'll be no rain
I heard the wind sail through your voice
I can trust in you, you're forever the same

Don't go away
don't go away
I need you to stand beside me
in every single way
and be my field of green

Sunrays are falling through the forest
I'm waiting for some of them to fall on me
I know you're getting tired, and you'll be leaving soon
you're the very earth to me
and always will be

Don't go away
don't go away
you take the darkest nights
and turn them into days
you are the earth to me
you are the earth to me

ISLAND CLOUDS
I sail home beneath your greyness
as your anvil starts to build
you are covering my island
a blue void that you have filled
you seem so still
but I know that you're moving

If I close my eyes, you'll still be there
if I close my mind, I might disappear
but you'll still be there, to cover up my island

It's so quiet in my head
as you cross the sky above me
I am pressed into this earth
like a flower in a book
each day greets me
like a new arrival

If I close my eyes, you'll still be there
if I close my mind, I might disappear
but you'll still be there, to cover up my island

You're so distant from my sight
but you're close enough to touch me
I walk through you on a hillside
like a fairy in a fable
you'll follow me home
and thunder if you're able

If I close my eyes, you'll still be there
if I close my mind, I might disappear
but you'll still be there, to cover up my island

SUN AT MY PLACE
Ah...sweet sunshine, you're pouring across my face
it's making me feel like taking a stroll
through the sweetpeas in the back of my place

such a lazy day.......such a lazy day

It's such an easy day, there's nothin much to do
I suppose I could work a little harder at
sittin here with you

such a lazy day...........such a lazy day

I've lost all track of time out here
but I know it's been a while
I'll check the shadow of the cherry tree
like a big old sun dial

such a lazy day......such a lazy day

flowers are growin, the grass needs mowin
and I'll just say it again
ah...sweet sunshine
you send me around the bend

such a lazy day....such a lazy day

added part....sun is finally shining, days are so much longer
all I want to do, is spend time with you
I think I'll take a walk in the sun

STANLEY
Stanley's here and Stanley's gone
he never stayed to hear his song
he never finished telling me
of by gone day's and what went wrong

He's sorry for the hurt endured
by all affected, he was sure
he'd feel the pain forever more
of ending life so young and pure

you can leave and feel some ease
you can sleep and feel some peace
try and mend your broken heart
peace is yours in your sleep

time would pass and he's begin
to feel the walls and bars within
could open up their tightened grip
and maybe set him free again

he tried to make the most of life
and shared it with his loving wife
they lived upon an island where
he pulled the drawbridge up at night

you can leave and feel some ease
you can sleep and feel some peace
try and mend your broken heart
peace is yours in your sleep

Stanley's here and Stanley's gone
he might come back to hear his song
he'll try to finish telling me
of day's gone by, and what went wrong

you can leave and feel some ease
you can sleep and feel some peace
try and mend your broken heart
peace is yours in your deep sleep

THOUGHTS OF ANYTHING
I couldn't sleep last night
thinking about all the people I didn't meet
on all the trips I never took last year
they're walking and talking around
as if they're right here

I couldn't remember the names
of the people I met last week
on a downtown street
I'm sure they'll come back to me
in the future, when we meet again

scattered all around me, lay the petals and the thorns
from years of holding flowers your bouquets I hold no more

Thinking way off track
about some friends of mine
living far away, across the straight
and down the highway by the line
everytime I call you say I love you

when the day is new
look from horizontal lines
of broken dusty window blinds
into the park across the street
where mothers of the children meet...on a sunday

scattered all around me, lay the petals and the thorns
from years of holding flowers, your bouquets I hold no more

when the day is closing
I'll turn the lights out, say good bye
to all the thoughts inside my mind....tonight
and see you again , in the morning

scattered all behind me, lay the petals and the thorns
from years of holding flowers, your bouquets I hold no more

hold no more

TERMINAL STATION
I sleep on the benches at terminal station
shopping carts guard me and my indignations,
and I'm so cold

my life is all here, on these streets and this park
where I sleep in the daytime and roam in the dark
everyday

it's a far cry from home, my clothes are in tatters
I watch life go by, I know I don't matter
to you

I'm still a man, I used to have hope
I once had a home and I knew how to cope
with it all

you don't know my name, you don't really care
can't look at my face, pretend I'm not there
but I am

I beg your forgiveness and beg for my food
I know I'm a bother, you think I'm so rude
I'm sorry

life on the street has kicked me around
this is my home, in this part of town
I'm not leaving

so get on the train, go on your vacation
I'll stay right here at terminal station
forever

I'm still a man, I used to have hope
I once had a home and I knew how to cope
with it all

you don't know my name, you don't really care
can't look at my face, pretend I'm not there
but I am

I sleep on the benches at terminal station
leave me alone!

THE CALLING OF HIGH
Call my name from high on a mountain
I heard your voice, down by the river
echoing canyons tell of your message

keep calling out, above all the treetops
I can start climbing, and reach there before dark
winding through woods and the pathways before me

see far and wide, from my place on the mountain
looking down where I sat, on the stones on the water
perched on the edge, like a bird on a fountain

you call me down to come to your meadow
off in the distance, I see gold and yellow
guide me down pathways , that lead where you are

wondering back to the place on the shoreline
I hear you everywhere, from highlands to lowlands
you are a shadow, a mist in the valley

calling my name
calling my name

 

 

RUCKLE PARK
There are whales in our frontyard
and witches with they're lanterns
going down into the ocean
floating past the children
and the deer out in the open
and who am I to say, this isn't magic in the making
it's all so beautiful to see

stars were falling everywhere
just to show us anything could happen
full moons light the way to laughter
light our way to everafter

let's all sit around the fire
tell the dark the way we feel
and keep this time in memory
for no one, will believe this time was real

a star shaped man lies in the grass
beside the trail tonight
morning comes, the man is gone
and the ground is covered with sunlight

let's all sit around the fire
tell the dark the way we feel
and keep this time in memory
for no one will believe this time was real

there are whales in our frontyard
and witches with they're lanterns
going down into the ocean
floating past the children
and the deer out in the open
and who am I to say, this isn't magic in the making
it's all so beautiful to see

DREAM VISIONS
I see visions of rivers made of silver
I dream oceans of visions that are pure and fine
I release my mind to fantasies
that only come
when I close these eyes of mine

I dreamt forever, and forever I will stay
for if I wake, I'll miss this place
and never find my way

I hear music with no instruments around me
I dream all the sounds are for my own
let sights and sounds of my sleeping soul
become the only things that I know

I dreamnt forever, and forever I will stay
for if I wake I'll miss this place
and never find my way

I feel my way through sleeping hours of mysteries
brush against the velvet strands along the ground
a background for all the oceans and visions and rivers and music
I have ever found

I dreamnt forever, and forever I will stay
for if I wake, I'll miss this place
and never find my way

FRIEND
Come on up and have a seat in an old wood chair
come and play my guitar
friends are welcome anytime round here
so come and join me like the friend you are

a harbour view, and sunny days
are all we need to celebrat
so if you're passing by, and feel like company
just open up the gate

bring the wine and walk along the sand
I'm so glad you came along
perfect timing, perfect day
let's go back and play a song

a harbour view, and sunny days
are all we need to celebrate
so if you're passing by, and feel like company
just open up the gate

now the sun is dissappearing
the mountain steals it all the time
so come on up again tomorrow
as a friend I'm glad you're mine

a harbour view, and sunny days
are all we need to celebrate
so if you're passing by, and feel like company
just open up the gate

YOUNG MEN
Young men pose...for military photos
smiles forbidden, futures never known
they couldn't know that half of them are gone now
the picture lies, they've sent them home

duty calls...and soldiers fly
to destinations tropical
white sand beaches, turquoise water
hide the fact, there's gunfire in the sky

tell the mothers of the fate
of thousands fallen, names of late
write the fathers, play the parts
give the brothers purple hearts

trenches deep and filled with pain
drift off home in just a flash
wake up to an m16
fight on through the jungle rain

tell the mothers of the fate
of thousands fallen, names of late
write the fathers, play the parts
give the brothers purple hearts

now there's pictures on the walls
of men in combat men at ease
telling stories to loved ones
all about when duty calls

tell the mothers of the fate
of thousands fallen, names of late
write the fathers play the parts
and give the brothers purple hearts

VALENTINE
Once upon a time, you were mine
my valentine, once upon a time

the red of this room is coloured desire
the heat in my mind, set's me on fire

my thoughts are running wild
you make me such a mess
make me do things I don't
and never could confess
my valentine....my valentine

come back to me, feel my face
while I look at you
I want to be your valentine tonight

hold onto me, speak to me
say those love words oh so gently....valentine

my thoughts are running wild
you make me such a mess
make me do things I won't
and never could confess
my valentine....my valentine

once upon a time, you were mine
my valentine, once upon a time

my thoughts are running wild
you make me such a mess
make me do things I don't
and never could confess
my valentine...my valentine
my valentine....my valentine....valentine

LAKE SONG
Wishes granted wishes made
though lifetime memories often fade away
I still remember all the trips we'd take
drive for miles, to that old cabin on a lake

growing up and growing old
I remember all the stories told
skipping stones and skipping city life
get away for a week or two
or just a night

adirondac chairs are holding all the folks up there
they talk so long and always stay up late
no one wants to leave
that old cabin on a lake

COALMEN
I'd like to take this opportunity
pay respect to hardworking souls
they worked so hard to make a way for us
they gave they're lives to mine the coal

miners sons and daughters still live in this place
among deserted mines and trains
and if you listen close, you can hear a whistle blow
you can see black coal shining in the rain

going down one more time
to the mines far below
goin down goin down goin down

on the bay so many years ago
broken piers joined with the rails
ships departed with they're cargo
and left behind so many tales

goin down one more time
to the mines far below
goin down goin down goin down

then they go back down in the dark again
they're lamps are glowing like fireflies
I'm sure they wondered if they'd see again
rich blue colors of the sky

if they could see a hunfred years from then
see that what they left behind
so many living in a city
made by coalmen of they're kind

goin down one more time
to the mines far below
goin down, goin down, goin down,
goin down, goin down, goin down,
goin down goin down.
