This song appears on five albums, and was first released on The Flower That Shattered the Stone album. It has also appeared on the Stonehaven Sunrise, A Portrait and The John Denver Collection - Take Me Home, Country Roads albums. A live version also appears on The Wildlife Concert album. Horses are creatures who worship the earth As they gallop on feet of ivory Constrained by the wonder of dying and birth The horses still run, they are free My body is merely the shell of my soul But the flesh must be given its due Like a pony that carries its rider back home Like an old friend that's tried and been true I had a vision of eagles and horses High on a ridge in a race with the wind Going higher and higher and faster and faster On eagles and horses I'm flying again Eagles inhabit the heavenly heights They know neither limit nor bound They're the guardian angels of darkness and light They see all and hear every sound My spirit will never be broken or caught For the soul is a free-flowing thing Like an eagle that needs neither comfort nor thought To rise up on glorious wings I had a vision of eagles and horses High on a ridge in a race with the wind Going higher and higher and faster and faster On eagles and horses I'm flying again My body is merely the shell of my soul But the flesh must be given its due Like a pony that carries its master back home Like an old that's tried and been true My spirit will never be broken or caught For the soul is a free-flowing thing Like an eagle that needs neither comfort nor thought To rise up on glorious wings I had a vision of eagles and horses High on a ridge in a race with the wind Going higher and higher and faster and faster On eagles and horses I'm flying again Words and music by John Denver and Joe Henry

Shelter From The Rain

AVANTASIA "The Scarecrow"
[Tobias Sammet:] Like a wheel I keep on turning Straight ahead, it's got me burning The melody — the dignity, Something is speaking to me Night is cold and my soul is battered Not afraid for the first time now that I realize We coincide, I'll never belong to the tribe And a song is calling me to this ship of fools [Chorus:] Been dying for a sign when faith has been on the line When you find your love on wasted grounds You're taking to the sound, it's shelter from the rain [Michael Kiske:] No return from the way I've chosen, Cast away - chasing rainbows - condemn the lie And how could I make god believe I'm blind? We create by intuition, call it fate — the tounge of angels in our soul Feel it resound and carry you over the grind All that's left is a song giving shelter from the rain [Chorus] [Bob Catley:] It's a dark and stormy night, Ain't it funny what it takes to read the signs? But I'm always there, I am the footprints to your right Man overlooks when riding high, young and blind In your darkest lonely night, heed a voice to take you higher Take you higher As you stumble through the ruins, let the spirit take you higher, and a soul [Tobias Sammet:] Oh, and a song I can hear a song [Chorus x2]

The Higher You Climb

ASIA "Archiva 2"
There is no comeback from the big divide Maybe there's a future to be found waiting on the other side If it's illusion, then what is real? In life's confusion, take what you can Fight it till you reach the goal. And the higher you climb you can fall But never look down And the faster you run, it's a crawl To the end of the line. Seems all directions lead to one place There are no signposts guiding me It takes a long time to see And the higher you climb you can fall But never look down And the faster you run, it's a crawl To the end of the line. The age of reason has come and gone The changing seasons move on and on until you reach the goal And the higher you climb you can fall But never look down And the faster you run, it's a crawl To the end of the line.

Bleeding You Dry

EMF "Cha Cha Cha"
Drinking there's no tomorrow Drowning sins and sorrows I've passed this way before And just drank some more I woke up with a red face And war paint And a loss of grace I won't be back in second place By taking something with bad taste I catch it every time I don't know why but I like this feeling Part of something higher And I'm not just bleeding you dry Daylight is a mystery When quoting lines from history Of famous drunks that used to be But now all this is lost to me Their contributions used to grate As I explained away their fate With deadlines I'll never make And the fact I'm doing nothing I catch it every time I don't know why but I like this feeling Part of something higher and I'm not just bleeding Don't know why, why, why but I like this feeling Part of something higher and I'm not just Bleeding you dry Faster, faster my chemical master My problem solver, my powered saint Give me the power to go forever And make my blood just red wet hate I don't know why but I like this feeling Part of something higher and I'm not just bleeding Don't know why, why, why but I like this feeling Part of something higher and I'm not just Bleeding you dry

Further We Stretch

Ezio "Black Boots On Latin"
Sometimes…it feels like my time is coming Sometimes…it feels like my days are through The phone it rings always when my bath is running Out the door with all my things And it's all over now Baby Blue Well you know I've got me an imaginary friend And it's his daydreams we buy in the end He won't let me break, he won't let me bend He puts it all together and I just press send And he's a shadow behind me in the light And he takes me walking in the park at night He makes me do something wrong, do something right And disappears before the morning The further we stretch The higher the sky It gets harder The harder we try The faster we run The longer the road The stronger we get The bigger the load When I fell in love with you It wasn't the way that I dreamt it would happen Bells didn't ring, no violins Or me on a horse with Nelson Eddy's hat on You're not Jeanette McDonald And our signs don't match We dance with an opposite sway You said you needed to run And have fun, fun, fun ‘Til your Daddy took your T-Bird away The further we stretch The higher the sky It gets harder The harder we try The faster we run The longer the road The stronger we get The bigger the load
