Lyrics

 

Love In Time

 

The world is filled with restless lovers

Ever waiting for another chance to try

To find what’s passed them by

 

The night is broken with the crying

Of the lost who wonder why 

They’re never found

It’s such a sorry sound.

 

(chorus)

But Love in Time will come to all

Take your breath and break your fall

All of those who hunger will be fed.

And just when things are looking dark

Love will come and take your heart

And wake in you a promise long unsaid

 

The winds of fortune rarely grace 

Those who try to force the pace 

And will not see

That love can’t be had for free

 

Those who try to place a price on 

The value of their sacrifice 

Will suffer long

Theirs is the saddest song

 

D.F. - acoustic and electric guitars, electric slide guitar, piano, bass, drums, percussion, lead and harmony vocals

 

 

 

Soft Voice

There’s a soft voice

That follows me

Everywhere

Everywhere I go

And it whispers

So softly

This time I know

This time I know

 

Oh, it wasn’t a dream

That follows me 

Everywhere. 

 

I wonder 

If it’s all right

To call 

Call on you today

And I wonder 

If it’s all right

To kiss...kiss your tears away

 

Oh, was it a dream

That followed me 

Everywhere?

 

Words and music by Larry Hickman

D.F. - acoustic and electric guitars, piano and keyboards, bass, drums, percussion, synth string and horn arrangement, lead and harmony vocals. 

 

 

 

So Many Changes

 

Do you think that it’s wise 

To be cursing the cloudy skies

Don’t come to me with your cries

When the sun’s shining in your eyes 

 

Just zip your coat to the cold

And look again for that hand to hold

I’m sure you must have been told

There’s more than one way of growing old 

 

(bridge)

And there are so many people

Who are caught in a bind

So many people are captives of time

So many changes are waiting in line

 

(repeat 1st verse)

 

D.F. - acoustic guitars, piano, bass, drums, lead and harmony vocals

 

 

 

Come To The Harbor

 

Come to the harbor and dance with me, girl

Dance by the edge of the sea

The moon will be rising

The tide will be high

Oh, come let your fancy run free

 

Come to the harbor

And kick up your heels

Let’s dance ‘til the break of the dawn

The fiddlers will play us their jigs and their reels

The summer so soon will be gone

 

Come to the harbor and lay with me, girl

I sail with the turn of the tide

Come to the harbor and stay with me, girl

The sea is so deep and so wide

 

(repeat 1st verse)

 

D.F. - acoustic and electric guitars, sitar, bass, drums, percussion, lead and harmony vocals

 

 

 

A Growing Time

 

It’s a growing time

It’s the springtime of the year

It’s a growing time

The sun is moving near

It is yours and mine

The days are ours to share

Within our peaceful garden

And this growing time so fair

 

Caring quietly

For the garden in our care

It’s a joy to see

True love’s blossoms growing there

When you walk with me

A single shadow’s thrown

Across our peaceful garden

And this growing time we’ve known

 

(chorus)

Now the sheep are in the meadow

And the cows are in the corn

And if wishes were like horses we would ride

Like the light unto the shadow

And the blossom to the thorn

We’ve come to learn we flourish side by side

Side by side

 

D.F - acoustic guitars, bass, keyboards, strings and horn arrangement, drums, percussion, lead and harmony vocals

 

 

 

The Colors Of Eve

 

She never looks

And she never listens

Her heart only knows what it feels

And all that she is 

And all that she isn’t

Her every movement reveals

 

All her bright moods

And all her dark tempers

She’s never the way she appears

She sometimes forgets

And sometimes remembers

And sometimes must laugh 

Through the tears

 

Of lavender mornings

And gray afternoons

Sad when the day takes its leave

Nights of white passion

And deep shades of blue

These are the Colors of Eve

 

The shade on her eye

Like pale purple asters

Runs down her cheek when she cries

And the ways of her heart

No man may master

Even though many will try

 

The blush on her cheek

The gold on her fingers

Shine when the lady’s in love

But a strong gentle touch

And a sunset that lingers

Are the things that her 

Dreams are made of

 

And Lavender mornings

And gray afternoons

Sad when the day takes its leave

Nights of white passion

And deep shades of blue

These are the Colors of Eve

 

D.F. - acoustic guitars, piano, synth string arrangement, lead vocal

 

 

 

Diamonds To Dust

 

Diamonds to Dust

Oh, Diamonds to Dust

Time can turn even 

Diamonds to Dust

 

Love is a question 

That few understand

It runs like a river 

Between a woman and man

But its course can get twisted

And its bed can run dry

And our hearts become deserts 

In the wink of an eye

 

Once there was love here 

And once there was trust

Once it was honest 

And open and just

Our love was a diamond

That grew between us

But time can turn even

Diamonds to Dust

 

(chorus)

Diamonds to Dust

Oh, Diamonds to Dust

Time can turn even 

Diamonds to Dust

Time is a teacher

It’s kind and it’s cruel

It gives you the wisdom

To see you’re a fool

And it gives love and takes love

It hurts and it heals

And it never parts easy 

With the truth it reveals

 

(chorus)

 

D.F. - acoustic and electric guitars, bass, organ, drums, lead and harmony vocals

 

 

 

The Nature Of The Game

 

Fools run 

Where an angel fears to follow

We’ve come to a place no fool would go

Sparks fly

And the truth rings harsh and hollow

It’s the same old song

We’ve sung so long

It’s the only dance we know

 

Hard times 

When the threads of love unravel

The arms stretch

But the hands don’t ever meet

True love is a rocky road to travel

You better get out of the kitchen

If you cannot stand the heat

 

Bad blood - hostile words get spoke in anger

Caught up in a game where no one wins

Our heads tend to disregard the dangers

While our hearts hang in the balance

And the wheel of fortune spins

 

Why must every heart I trust desert me 

Why must it always end the same

Fate deals the last one down and dirty

It’s the hands you keep 

That make you weep

But that’s The Nature of the Game

 

 

Cold eyes stare at you across the table

The stakes rise 

With each moment you delay

Hang tough 

If you still believe you’re able

Or else play your hand 

The best you can 

And get yourself away

 

Why does every heart 

I trust desert me 

Why must it always end the same

Fate deals the last one down and dirty

It’s the hands you fold

That make you old

That’s The Nature of the Game

 

It’s the hands you fold

That make you old

But that’s The Nature of the Game

 

It’s the hands you fold

That make you old

That’s The Nature of the Game

 

D.F. - acoustic guitar, vocal

 

 

 

Sometimes A Song

 

Listen to me and I will try to

Sing you a song that makes you see

How much I long to be beside you

And how much you mean to me

 

Sometimes A Song’s the only way to

Show you my heart will never stray

So if I can’t find words to tell you

I’ll sing what I cannot say

 

(bridge)

Let me sing you a field full of waving flowers

I’ll sing of the sun on the sea

For this is the way that you make me feel

Every time you smile at me

Will you only smile for me

 

At times it must seem I take for granted

All of the little things you do

Know in your heart I’m so enchanted

And still so in love with you

 

(repeat verse 2, bridge, and verse 1)

 

Written for Jean for Valentine's Day 2005.

D.F - acoustic guitars, bass, drums, congas, electric piano, synth string arrangement

 

 

 

Days To Come

 

Tell me true do you still believe the prophets

That you found among the clouds of youthful skies

Broken dreams line your face like stormy weather

But you can’t stay dry forever in the rain

 

The truth should now be plain

You can’t go back again

 

Living through what you used to call romantic

Now your voice betrays the panic in your eyes

Love at last but you still can’t seem to buy it

Now you’re caught between the quiet and the cries

 

Oh, tears and hopeful lies

Make a sad disguise

 

All your life you’ve been chasing some uncertain

Now you find yourself deserting all you know

Though it feels like this chill won’t leave you ever

You know you can’t stay cold forever in the sun

 

Oh, raise your head and run, run, run

Through the Days To Come

 

D.F. - acoustic guitars, electric guitars, bass, drums, lead and harmony vocals

 

 

 

Birds

for Jeanie, my one true love

 

Lover, there will be another one 

Who’ll hover over you beneath the sun

Tomorrow see the things that never come

Today

 

When you see me fly away without you 

Shadow on the things you know

Feathers fall around you

And show you the way to go

 

It’s over....it’s over.

 

Nestled in your wings my little one

This special morning brings another sun

Tomorrow, see the things that never come

Today

 

When you see me fly away without you 

Shadow on the things you know

Feathers fall around you

And show you the way to go

 

It’s over....it’s over.
