Awake

Original and similar lyrics
(Adapted from 'The Rubaiyat' of Omar Khayyam) The dawning of a brand new day The waking of the whispers say: That sleeping heavens will return In deepest night the secret learned And from these walls this city lies The past will be our future The journey will be over, Awake! I saw the writing on the wall The story of our birth then fall Within their tombs of holy stone The scrolls of life, one man alone So if we try, we can live and learn The sands will pull you under Don't let them pull you under Awake! I travelled to a foreign land Through stormy seas and burning sand Led by the stars the ancient stream The call of treasures yet unseen So if we climb to the rocks of kings Together we'll discover The source of all our wonder Awake! Someday we're going to go back to the stars And find the answer, who we really are A traveller through the lonely mists of time Creation from the sky The dawning of a brand new day The waking of the whispers say: That sleeping heavens will return In deepest night the secret learned From these walls this city lies The past will be our future The journey will be over Awake! Someday we're going to go back to the stars And find the answer who we really are A traveller through the lonely mists of time Creation from the sky Someday we're going to back to the stars And find the answer who we really are If we try, we can live and learn Together we'll discover The source of all our wonder Awake! We saw the writing We read the story Awake!

Journey's End (Emalonjeni)

Johnny Clegg Savuka "Crocodile Love / Ya Vuka Inkunzi"
Every day now when I wake up You know I feel just a little bit stronger I stir my coffee with the promise I'll find you Although I know the road is much longer How many times I've sat and prayed I'd find some map to show the way How many times I've felt each day Laugh at me and just slip away Chorus I don't know where you are My eyes are fixed upon your star I know that that at the journey's end I will see your face again Indlela 'yasidedela (The way is now clear for us) Sihamb' emalonjeni (we begin our long journey) Another highway, another mile Through the dreamtime, down the Nile Under the desert sky blue I have a picture of loving you How many nights I lie awake Feeling your footprints in my soul How many miles will it now take To fill this cup and make it whole Chorus Sihamba singadlile, lasho ithumbo (We travel hungry, and our stomachs talk to us) Chorus

The Weird Beast

Rickie Lee Jones "The Magazine"
I brought the Weird Beast here From Van Nuys Blvd. So I would not be without a man When the Tartans reign Flooded the Empty streets of Paris... And on one of these Passing boats I thought I saw the Weird Beast Speaking in the Russian tongue Will he kill the Czar? Will he kill the Czar? Draw the Weird Beast Everywhere you go. Death speaks the foreign Language we don't know. Make sure they hear him Breathing Someday vou'll meet A stranger Locations everywhere You go All of the science You've kept in bottles Because Someday this dream is Going to end I have this Feeling A Weird Beast Is going to come our way

The Soil

Dreadful Shadows
Shades are rising above my head Voices whisper a name A coat of ice is covering me A breath of decay drifts away The soil is your father, don't try to escape Give in our will and awake Paralyzed by agony When bones broke through my skin My splintering skull was the last thing I felt I leave my mortal remains A spiral of darkness will lead to your home Open the gate to that world The soil is your father, don't try to escape Give in our will and awake

Things Will Go My Way

THE CALLING "Two"
I came to tell you How it all began Nothing seems to work out right I'm broken down again So hold me now And say it's not forever Maybe someday In time Things will go my way Things will go my way I've pushed to get through The crowds os twisted souls Just to find I'm right back here Doing what I'm told So take my hand Don't let me surrender 'Cuz maybe someday Yeah, in time Things will go my way Things will go my way For all the lives I've tasted Just looking for the truth For all the dreams I'm chasing What am I to do With everything against me The answers are all wrong Im hopin now, I'll find out It was working all along So hold me now And say it's not forever Maybe someday In time Things will go my way Things will go my way Things will go my way For all the lives I've tasted Just looking for the truth For all the dreams I'm chasing What am I to do With everything against me The answers are all wrong Im hopin now, I'll find out Things will go my way Things will go my way
