Old bones taking me back 
Old worlds taking me back 
Resting on the souls of long ago 

Old dreams taking me back
Old loves taking me back
Carrying us on wings of days long past 

Trees with leaves 
for dreams
A dance that never ends
That only you can know

From the roots to the sky
Sylvan slippers, rings of time
In the gloaming of this world
Back where memories lie

I keep longing for

Old bones taking me back
Old worlds taking me back 
Resting on the souls of long ago

 

New roads leading me home
New hearts leading me home
Setting sail for ancient lands unknown

Trees with leaves 
for dreams
A dance that never ends
That only you can know

From the roots to the sky
Sylvan slippers, rings of time
In the gloaming of this world
Back where memories lie

I’m just dreaming of

Old bones taking me back
Old worlds taking me back 
Resting on the souls of long ago 

New roads leading me home
New hearts leading me home
Setting sail for ancient lands unknown

These ghosts say: 
I can’t save you now
But I can tell you how
How to live a life 
That’s brave and free

I can tell you what I cared about
I can tell you what I regret
I can tell you to remember me

Forget me not in the fog of war
Lost in memory
I’m all that’s left 
That’s left of time
My thoughts are the bones
I leave behind 

I feel it burning right through me 
The past is lighting my way 
Though all is dark around me 
This lantern guides my way 

The ghosts are talking right through me 
Their light shines across my mind 
Troubles and doubts pursue me 
But their wisdom fills my mind

These walls can talk 
These walls are alive 
These wall tell stories in their very bones
There’s things worth fighting for
Things worth dying for
All our loyal hearts are true

I hear their words ripping through me
Their thoughts are tumbling down
Ancient stories surround me
What’s lost can now be found

It’s the heart of things that matter
What’s buried deep and gone
The weight of time pulls on me
But dreams live on and on

These walls can talk
These walls are alive
These walls can tell us who and what survived
These walls can cast a brighter light
Burn bright all through the night
Burn until the day is new

Spinning straw into golden light
Burning bright all through the night
Burning bright till all our days are new

Alone, alone in the brand new universe
A minute ago I was nothing
Now here I am
It’s supposed to be the first day of the rest of my life
But it’s the first day of the universe
And nobody gives a damn about me

It’s me
it’s all about meeeeee
This is my story
This is my life
Though it sounds like I’m complaining
Everything I say is true 
It’s you  

What’s duh matta witch you?
Why don’t you get what I’m telling you?
For God’s sake I’m dying here

I’m the star
I’m the galaxy
I’m the whole universe
I’m the reason why you all are here

Alone in the primordial swamp 

It’s meeee
It’s all about meeeee
I refuse to divide
they say it’s my destiny
But I will remain 
One cell 
Or die

Neander Valley’s fragrance  
Lingers in the air
Glaciers glide by
Hearths on fire

Roasting cave bears late at night
Rolling naked in the grass
Counting stars 
On our backs

We’re all Neanderthals
Under the skin
Songs on our lips
Dreams in our hearts
Leaving our bones behind
We’re all Neanderthals
Under the skin 
Longing for a place to call our own

Neander Valley’s fragrance 
Hovers in the air
Clouds roll by
Smoke rings fly

Fishing trout by rolling streams
Wooly mammoths all night long
Counting stars 
On our backs 

We’re all Neanderthals
Under the skin
Songs on our lips
Dreams in our hearts
Leaving our bones behind
We’re all Neanderthals
Under the skin 
Longing for a place to call our own

We’re all Neanderthals
Under the skin
Songs on our lips
Dreams in our hearts
Leaving our bones behind
We’re all Neanderthals
Under the skin 
Longing for a place to call our own

Across the sky, across the sea
Every step in front of me
Leads me into the unknown

Across the sky, across the sea
All the earth in front of me
All roads stars that lead me home

A map, a plan, a distant land
With stardust at my back
I see the new world
Feel the new world
New dreams take me home

Across the sky, across the sea
Every step in front of me
Leads me into the unknown

Across the sky, across the sea
All the earth in front of me
All roads stars that lead me home

A map, a plan, a distant land
With stardust at my back
I see the new world
Feel the new world
New dreams take me home

Sleeping Shadows Lullaby

Ellen C Kaye – Lead Vocal

Diane Monroe – Violin
Koa Ho – Upright Bass
Zach Mullings – Drums, Tambourine

See the far off hills
The amber leaves
Against the sky
see the dreamy woods
Of days gone by

Hear the oceans roar
The storm tossed skies
You wonder why
You ask me why

See the silver birds
The blue dark clouds 
Across the sky
See the stars that shoot right through the sky

Singing spirits fly across the sky
The earth will dance 
Beneath the sky

I love to feel your breath upon my face
And in my dreams 
I keep you safe
I love to feel your breath upon my face
Your tiny hands
Your grace

I feel your pounding heart against my chest
I love you so
Through every breath
I feel your pounding heart against my chest
I love you so
My every breath

You’re the dream, the wish, the hope 
I build my life upon 
You’re my very own 
My dearest one

I feel your pounding heart against my own 
We climb the cold
The cold, cold stones 

Feel the spirits of the earth
The winds, the sea, the sky
Feel their tender kisses on your eyes 

Sleeping shadows fly 
Across the sky 
They hide the stars
You ask me why

I dreamed that we were far away and gone 
On wings of birds 
We flew at dawn 
I dreamed I kept you safe (and sound) from harm
We left this earth 
And we were gone 

I want to hide you in these woods with me 
To keep you safe 
To set us free
I long to keep you sleeping here with me  
Forever more 
Forever free

Across the sky, across the sea
Every step in front of me
Leads me into the unknown 

Across the sky, across the sea
Leaving all that’s dear to me
No more to sleep in my old home 

A map, a plan, a distant land
It tears me from my home
I miss my old world
Need my old world
Long for my old home

Across the sky, across the sea
Every step in front of me
Leads me into the unknown 

Across the sky, across the sea
Leaving all that’s dear to me
No more to sleep in my old home 

A map, a plan, a distant land
It tears me from my home
I miss my old world
Need my old world
Long for my old home

Red glass globes on fire
Salvador Dali in the corner
Crushed ice and caviar 
Through the revolving door
The world came tumbling, 
Laughing

Golden balls and tinsel
Stiller and Meara in the corner
Blinis and caviar 
Through the revolving door
The world came dancing,
Loving

It all happened …on 57th Street….

They’re eating:
Cherry blintzes, Chicken Kiev,
Kasha and Piroshki
Steaming bowls of Pelmeni
Pumpernickel, sour cream,
And lots of boiled potatoes
And White Russians 
steeping tea bags
In free boiling water

Pink table cloths are glowing
Sidney Poitier sits in the corner
Vodka and caviar 
Through the revolving door
The world came winning,
Losing

Pool green walls surround us
Sylvia Miles in the corner
The brass and samovars 
Through the revolving door
The world came schmoozing,
Boozing

It all happened …down the block …from Horn & Hardart’s…Automat…

They’re eating:
Vareniki and Sirniki
Blinchiki and Rosolnik
Butter pouring over blini
Mushroom barley, sour pickles
And lots of cold zubrovka
And White Russians 
Steeping tea bags
In free boiling water

Sidney Pollack’s Tootsie
Madonna hatchecking in the corner
Zakuska and caviar 
Through the revolving door
The world came thinking, 
Dreaming

Red banquettes on fire
Harry Belafonte in the corner – Dey Ohhh
Smoked tongue and caviar 
Through the revolving door
The world came moving,
Shaking 

Just across from …Chock Full O’Nuts…the heavenly coffee

They’re eating:
Kulebiaka, Luli Kebab
Bitochki and Pojarski
Forshmak Dragimiroff
Tomato Herring, Russian Dressing
Lots of chicken liver
And White Russians 
Steeping tea bags
In free boiling water

People lined up to the sidewalk 
Zero Mostel sings in the corner – acapella  “Tradition”!
Murals and caviar
Through the revolving door
The world came handling,
Schnorring

Blacklisted artists on fire
Lee Grants lingers in the corner
Shashlik and caviar
Through the revolving door
The world came swirling,
Whirling

We were all slightly …to the left of …Carnegie Hall…

And White Russians
Steeping tea bags
In free, free…boiling water

Riding on the back of the northwind
Pine needles ‘cross a forest floor
Washing off the stain
A renegade
A rogue and a runaway

Don’t look back
Burn every bridge
Tell everyone to go to hell  
Don’t give up 
Never say I die
Leave all the past behind

A blowing blue sky
Crashes over highways
Truckers, drifting through the night
Washing off the stain
A renegade
A rogue and a runaway

Don’t look back
Burn every bridge
Tell everyone to go to hell  
Don’t give up 
Never say I die
Leave all the past behind

Strange motel rooms
Darkened bars
A boom town late at night
Washing off the stain
A renegade
A rogue and a runaway

White caps bursting on a river
Shadows ripping through the night
Washing off the stain
A renegade
A rogue and a runaway

Don’t look back
Burn every bridge
Tell everyone to go to hell  
Don’t give up 
Never say I die
Leave all the past behind

Washing off the stain
A renegade
A rogue and a runaway

On an island in the bay
Hidden far away from sight
Windswept buried out at sea
Fog horns blow past city lights

On an island in the bay
Dreams are lost along the way
What a dark and lonely place
It’s the heart of Pelham Bay

No moon, no stars
Lost world, no looking back
Lost, longing for home
Longing for what we had

On an island in the bay
We can see the far off lights
We’ll all escape one day
Some in spirit, some in flight

No moon, no stars
Lost world, no looking back
Lost, longing for home
Longing for what we had

On an island in the bay
We can see the far off lights
We’ll all escape one day
Some in spirit, some in flight

Steam from my coffee floats and swirls 
In the air
Blowing off the little deck
The boat that carries me straight back to you

That far off dock
The ropes that tie us to the shore
The safe harbor of your arms
Stillness in a storm

The map around my heart
Follows an ancient mariners guide
That warns me of forgetting
All you’ve lost

Love lost in the mist
Buried deep in my heart
Haunting all my thoughts and dreams
The ghost that spirits me
Straight back to you

The map around my heart
Follows an ancient mariners guide
That warns me of forgetting
All you’ve lost

Love lost in the mist
Buried deep in my heart
Haunting all my thoughts and dreams
The ghost that spirits me
Straight back to you

My heart carved and buried deep
Shut off from the light
Lost in the ashes
Some phoenixs don’t rise
Some phoenixs don’t rise
Some phoenixs don’t rise

View of a pearl strung bridge
Our life floated in the air
You in my arms 
Wrapped so close

You and your dad and me
Just for a moment 
Hovering high above the world
So sweet

The moon 
Was our shield
The stars 
Kept us safe

Since the day that you were born
You’ve been my outside heart
Roaming free

Our circus in the sky
Moon drenched river guarding us
From all the bullets 
Flying by

The moon 
Was our shield
The stars 
Kept us safe

Since the day that you were born
You’ve been my outside heart
Roaming free
Roaming free
Roaming free

Lost in the stars in the big dark sky
All alone – you and I
All the odds against us
They turned out to be so right

On that first night when I caught your eye
Stretching time – you and I
All the world around us
Telling us to say goodbye 

Two creatures with no luck at all
Till that night – you and I
All the ghosts surround us 
Daring us to tell them why

You left this earth it was do or die
No more us – no you and I
Never was a chance
Just no way we could survive

Lost in the stars in the big dark sky 
All alone – you and I 
All the odds against us
They turned out to be so right
All alone – you and I

Ellen C Kaye – lead vocal

Koa Ho – upright bass

Clouds are so impossibly pink
Gloom is a vanishing thing
Ships on the edge of the world
Beckoning us to the brink

Road to the cliff
Secret path to the sea
Love floats – heavenly
The world stretches out – vista’s opening
The day is incredibly free

Lingering
Languidly
Out of time, out of space, out of joy
Into dawn, into day, into song

Night time descends
Shadows linger and sway
We’re wrapped in a gossamer web
This is where happiness lives
So voluptuously astray

Lingering
Languidly
Out of time, out of space, out of joy
Into dawn, into day, into song

Night time descends
Shadows linger and sway
We’re wrapped in a gossamer web
This is where happiness lives
So voluptuously astray
