If I were made of music
This is what I'd be
I'd be a symphony for life
You'd never finish me
Opening each day with a new song
A note would never be wrong


It's a perfect scale
You've reached for all the time
Has become my meaning
Since you became mine
Held by your chord
Now I have found
My freedom through your voice
Realising no bounds

Write me with your fingers
Caress me with your sound
Life inside your rhythm
Has made my love a round
Closer to the harmony that lies within
Waiting for the season


'Cause it's a perfect scale
You've reached for all the time
It's become my meaning
Since you became mine


Tonight when all the world's asleep
I'll bring
A love more tender
Than a robin's wing
Stars running free
Smiling at me
Knowing that up till now
I never believed in love

The north star knows
You may agree with him
But I was out the day
That love walked in
Most of my days
How I threw them away
Knowing that up till now
I never believed in love


When curtains close
The truth turns over
The dreams beyond
I find in more than a song
You came along
And now you've changed my view

So pure and bright
The raindrop voices ring
To help the moon play
On his golden strings
Lighting the stage
Turning the page
How can it be up till now
I never believed in love


So as we stand
Beneath the evergreen
The stars are not so silent
As they seem
They sparkle for you
You're gazing at me
Knowing that up till now
I never believed in love

Songs in the air
Telling me up till now
I never believed in love


If I loved you, time and again
I would try to say all I'd want you to know
If I loved you, words wouldn't come
In an easy way, round in circles I'd go


Longing to tell you but afraid and shy
I'd let my golden chances pass me by
Soon you'd leave me
Off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know
How I love you, if I loved you

Repeat chorus


Dawn light brings a tropic day above the trees
Old man gazing to the hills awaits
Proud boy, lion hearted, comes a hundred miles
Follow the sun, soon you'll be welcomed home


They sing througout the land
The boy becomes a man
Now he may take his fathers hand

Repeat chorus

Drums call, village voices ring around the shore
Rain falls as they cast their nets to sea
Young girls singing songs to bring the boy's return
Look for the sun soon to be welcomed home

Repeat chorus two times


Night falls as the people gather round the fire
Young men in their festive roles will dance
Echoes from the hills repeat their loud rejoice
Follow the sun now he is welcome home


(African Chorus)






There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far
Very far
Over land and sea
A little shy
And sad of eye
But very wise
Very wise was he


Then one day
A magic day he passed my way
And while he spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me
The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is to love
And be loved in return





Holding on to yesterday
Meant all the world to me
Finding out that you exist
Has made a clearer day to see
Only this morning
When I realised
Sun shining through
My window open wide
Feelings that held my heart
Close to all your smiles

Living in an empty space
Surrounded by broken lies
How my meaning had been lost
Until I found you in my eyes
How could my spirit
Free itself from doubt
Holding a dream inside
That should be out
Freer than all the streams
That have flowed to the sea


If there's a moment
That belongs to me only
It must be now you are here
Inside my life
And if I can be forever
In the closeness of you
Then I'll stay
As a shadow on your mind
Left for your memories to find

Looking into sleepy eyes
Gazing across my view
Knowing that tomorrow brings
A day containing one less fool
Finding the answer
Lying in your love
Carries on living
Now that there's enough
Happiness to be found
Sharing time with our lives



Going home, going home
I'm just going home
Quiet light, some still day
I'm just going home

It's not far, just close by
Through an open door
Work all done, care laid by
Going to fear no more

Mother's there expecting me
Father's waiting, too
Lots of folk gathered there
All the friends I knew

All the friends I knew

I'm going home

Nothing's lost, all's gain
No more fret nor pain
No more stumbling on the way
No more longing for the day
Going to roam no more

Morning star lights the way
Restless dream all done
Shadows gone, break of day
Real life begun

There's no break, there's no end
Just a living on
Wide awake with a smile
Going on and on

Going home, going home
I'm just going home
It's not far, just close by
Through an open door
I am going home
I'm just going home

Going home, going home
