Lighthouse (words & music G.Byrd)

Sweet light that guides me and takes me away

It shines inside as the fire of faith

 

I never been here before

I don’t know what to do

I never been here before

They’re saying today all the stars will come down over you

 

Sweet light that guides me and takes me away

Lighthouse, a spark amid fog burning red

We all have been here before

Looking for some truth

We all have been here before

Searching a way how to say they are cheating all of you

 

(interlude)

 

When I die will they tell you good news?

All you’ve heard about the war is real

Is upside-down just a point of view?

Anyhow they want you to spin the wheels

 

The shadow swallows you if your flame die

Did you get your crown killing the queen?

Is it my turn to absolve a sin?

 

The silence of my scream will be enough

I’ve Got the Blame (words & music G.Byrd)

Oh I’ve got the blame... I’ve got the blame...

You don’t know who I am or where I came from

Did you see me on that morning?

When the rain began to fall and all was grey?

 

Oooh I understand, said the old man

Many mistakes you can regret but can’t forget

And the mirror reflects choices

When you look to your own eyes and no one’s there

 

Learn and learn again...

                     Learn and learn again...

 

All the faces hiding changes

Is not easy looking back

But I know that somebody above will care about me

 

Oooh I’m lost again as much as I can

And the way has just began, Yes I know

And the path is full of thorns

But sweet blackberries are born to calm the pain

Along the Way (words & music G.Byrd)

 

Along the way
When you realize you never knew why you left your place
Along the way, along the way
When you recognize by the eyes those who made the same
All the love, you kept safe in an iron box with chains around it
Now you know, you cast the seed in the field of night
Surrendering yourself

I believe one day 
When the men will renege the fear
I believe one day
When respect will be a two-way street
For you and me
The poet says: "Only road saves" 
And I've got my suitcase full of Dreams and Sin

Along the way

People will do things for you that you never will repay
But one day along the way 

You will be the arm which will raise the shelter for the weak
On the walls 

Our tales have been written and our secrets were told
And they said along the way that Good and Evil is the same

For those who don't repent

 

I believe one day
When the men will renege the race
I believe one day
I believe one day when all the creeds and faiths will get together
We are all the same as Jesus said
Passing the collection plate or a glass of beer

Along the way
You've learned to name the kingdoms very well, each king and his domains
But the whipping of a slave, worth more than all the lands and the virtues of these kings
Over the years

We've been waiting for the Golden Age while we had everything
But we've heard along the way that Future is Today and Tomorrow will be Past

I believe one day
When the men will renege the greed
I believe one day
When the money will pay for all the deaths that itself did
The End of the Age is here to stay
Is the new release of Hollywood next week

 

Cold Morning (Words & music G.Byrd)

All the peace you need to live, just you and me
You just need to be my...girl
Dust and Dreams and all between
You can believe if you want to be mine

In the morning I'll leave this town
In that morning the Sun rose shy

Seems to be the first time I feel
The ground beneath my feet, it's my...road
Shining dew I look through it 
Like the gypsies do when they go out

 

In the morning I'll leave this town
A white morning
The Sun rose shy

 

Better Alone (words & music G.Byrd)
 

When a man has a girl, and things are not being right
Hey babe, it's time to change even if it breaks some hearts
You know I care about you, but I wanna be free

Can understand me babe?
                I just wanna live my life

Don't ever try to tell me what should I do
Yeah girl, I hurt myself when you had nothing to lose
If you don't believe oh Babe!
Now I gonna say

 

Girl I handled too much time
                  And now I get out of your way!

The life is mine and I am in control
I can't handle anymore, I'll be better alone

 

The life is mine and I am in control
I can't handle anymore, I'll be better alone

Marigold (words & music G.Byrd)

"The flower you are, not that one you give me, Is what I want. 
Because you deny me what I don't ask for."

A Marigold for me who never been afraid
But myself lost the love along the way

A Marigold for you who never been my friend

But you walking also careless in the rain

"I know not what tomorrow will bring"

 

The Herd (words & music G.Byrd)

I could be a soldier to fight against the nations
I could be a lover to break your heart again
But I don't want to pretend
There are many people doing these things around 
and around around
 of me

Should I be an angel to help and feed the poor ones?
Should I open wide my eyes when all around are blind?
But I don't want to stand
While everybody is rolling down the hill

These cold walls separating you and me and all
And all the people carrying warm tears behind a smile
As waterfalls that falling down the buildings 
Like a herd of heavy bold fucking buffaloes
If every single person here is asking for some more
Let's run and blast our heads against the floor

You shouldn't judge the other, a book by the cover
People have good tales to tell but hide it into themselves
Would you be my friend?
I bet you have a secret inside too

These cold walls separating you and me and all

And all the people carrying warm tears behind a smile

As waterfalls that falling down the buildings 

Like a herd of heavy bold fucking buffaloes

If every single person here is asking for some more

Let's run and blast our heads against the floor

-x-

All that you had to face and choose
It was nothing for nothing
Is all that will move
All that you had to believe to prove
Is the key to your freedom
Is the side that you choose

Hello There My Old Friend (words & Music G.Byrd)

 

Hello there my old friend
Have you been alone?
You should know how I'm sad
Since you've been gone

 

To somewhere where is not your home

 

Hellos never been said
All these years that gone
But I was sure you'd be back
Just before the last dawn

 

In somewhere where we will redeem our times
And the life will stop as before

 

So long since our past
Nothing has changed in town
But everything seems so fresh
Through the eyes of your son

 

In somewhere where he will redeem our times
And the life will roar as before

 

It's not time to go we still must die, free
We really don't know how we could fly
Or would have done it before

One More Bottle (words & music G.Byrd)

Oh let me drink one more bottle
Oh let me leave my troubles away
Oh let me drink one more bottle
To make me forget this bad day

'cause everytime I feel so 'lone
When you break my heart 
and go out through my door

Oh let me drink one more bottle
Oh let me drink my troubles away
Oh let me drink one more bottle
Oh let me take you out of my head

'cause everytime I feel so 'lone
When you break my heart 
and go out through my door

 

Don't Hesitate (words & music G.Byrd)

Now the wind is blowing shaking all the oak trees
Sweeping all the darkness, all this blur that makes me shade
See what the road is showing, put your pride under your knees
Learning melodies of life, putting notes on the symphony

Save me anyway...bring the yesterday
When you were here

Is not just for me the things mean insane
The bridges of greed will fall in the end
We know how the sea washes the sand
I don't know 'bout your faith
Just pray

 

Don't hesitate
      When your gold is miles away
                                                    Sail.

(interlude)

Is not only you who thinks the same
The bright child of truth will rise at the end
The storms bring questions from far away
I don't know 'bout your faith but
Is brave 

Don't hesitate
      When the clouds around blind your way
                                                       Lay down your fears.

 

Waiting (words & music G.Byrd)

Waiting...Through the nights and days
Waiting...While I don't find my way
But I know it's all right
A heart still waits for me

Waiting...Getting older every day
Waiting...A sweet girl cross my trail
But I know it doesn't happen
Angels don't fall like rain


Well, I'm alive
Waiting for love
Babe babe I'm waiting
But not alone

Babe...The Sun shines one more day
And I keep on waiting...Like a present on Christmas day
But I know it's all right
I'm waiting you sitting here

While...I'm sittin' singin' and playin'
My...Darling walks out there
But she knows that's all right
'cause I never get tired of waiting

Well, I'm alive
Waiting for love
Babe babe I'm waiting
But not alone

(guitar solo)

Well, I'm alive

Waiting for love
Babe babe I'm waiting
But not alone

Waiting...
Waiting...
Waiting...

Hard to Believe (words & music G.Byrd)

Babe, don't try to put me down
When you say things about the time and what will be
Yeah you, don't think about goodbye
Even if I stay so far away you'll have a piece of me

Should be hard to believe in a man that tries to be

 

Babe, always close your eyes

To moments and memories that make you cry 
Are you afraid of drowning in a sea of lies?
While all that I could wish 
Was your lovely smile

Should be hard to believe in a man that tries to be
Why don't let me love you today?
Just take my hand

(guitar solo)

Babe, trust in this shine
That nobody can understand
Only you and me
But someday babe, someday in your life
You will look back and see
Your eyes in my eyes

Should be hard to believe in a man that tries to be
Why don't let me love you today?
Just take my hand
Why don't let me love you today?
Just take my hand
Why don't let me love you anyway?
Just take my hand

                            Why don't let me love you?
 

21st Century Chronicles (words & music G.Byrd)

So you want to believe in all the lies they are telling you
And the reason why is: "Your hope is dead"
7 billion lives of humankind are enough to fill the books of all the libraries
But they don't know how to write a manual that could sort out 
All the space between us

I've been watching everything so quiet
But I have too much to complain about
It doesn't seem OK

Then you start to think about if you should walk the ground
Where they once washed with blood and tears
It's better anyhow than the underground 
Where the news is shouting chaos and terrorism
Or you can stay at home healthy safe and alone in comfort zone
While the world explodes and spins around without you

I've been watching everything so quiet
But I have too much to complain about
It doesn't seem OK

Open your borders to me
I'll raise your economy
They'll broadcast on BBC
You can be sure about it

Can you still see the shades of the Middle Ages
While we had just turned the pages the Millennium
If your love causes hate get your pride and celebrate
Because gender and faith are smaller than respect
Put your gods in the ring and let the dogma says who wins
Or they'll keep on fighting to the death

And it's a normal behavior of your stupid president
Attend the United Nations
And speak to a whole generation
All the benefits of nuking your neighbours

    "But forget about it,
                    Let's come back to the music station"

Expand the supremacy
The profits of your company
But you're not able to see
The people starving

Change the color of your skin
Or they never let you in
Unfortunately, there are no more tickets left
You call the police to help to keep the peace
But you're the real threat and they are in fact protecting the government
Spied on by your phone in a world where drones can scan you to the bone
And at the end of the month when you count your coins 
You'll maybe pay a tax for that

And I ask myself how to contribute
Fight for your rights and break the rules
Choosing the side where the oppressed rule
That seems Ok

Get a punch of urban philosophy
Overwhelming force of the reciprocity
Listen to this song from the 21st Century
I HOPE IT MAKES YOU THINK.

Wails In A Tale (words & music G.Byrd)

Now I'm alone
And all around me seem to turn stone
But they not roll

They are alone
Behind a wall of dreams and sing a song
To calm the soul

A gift to celebrate the braves and glorify the times 
That will pass

(interlude)

The Seventh Sun
Will heat my heart when it starts to shine
Through my windows

A seed that hopeless touches the earth and grows a huge tree
That lives here
