Through These Eyes

Irene Weiss/Karl Weiss 1997 *

I try my best to see reality
Through these eyes
I want the chance to see beyond the walls
Of this disguise
I say who am I?
I'm more than how I look in people's eyes

The time has come to think now for myself
Through these eyes
Won't be the slave of someone else
I'll live my own life
But who's left to blame
Oh, what if all my dreams come down in flames?

I see through these eyes
All that lives beneath the open skies
Passes through these eyes
If only I could see...who am I

I try my best to realize my dreams
Through these eyes
But how can I let my soul believe
So it can fly?
Just open your heart
All that is will come
From who you are
Chorus

Angel Of Dolores Street

Irene Weiss/Karl Weiss 1994+

I lay on the lawn in a circle of palms
In a park on Dolores Street
And an angel fell and landed on my shoulder
He said I've come to right your wrongs
Whispering in my raptured ear
And then he disappeared--or was he ever there?

There's an angel on my shoulder
As I walk down Dolores Street
There's an angel on my shoulder
As I walk down Dolores Street
My lover for to meet...my lover for to meet

I longed to find a man to share my world
I went looking when he didn't come
I found him where he was meant to be
Chorus
I'd seen that tender smile somewhere before
He said he'd like to write my songs
But he didn't disappear--or was he always there?
Chorus

Oasis In The Stars

Irene Weiss/Karl Weiss 1996+

I can't see how we can
Live as if the world were only ours to burn
I can't stand to see us stealing from the poor
It only makes us more poor

It's a paradise in the darkness of space
Oasis in the stars we are, we have no other place
Oh, we must have a change of heart
And find another way
We can save the human race...today

I am in a panic, everything I see is tearing into me
I can't understand it, everywhere the greed
It cuts into the heart and bleeds
Chorus
I can see just who we are
I hope we haven't gone too far

Like a burning candle
Helping us to see the darkness of our need
It's a glowing planet, trembling in the dark
Oasis in the stars, take heed
Chorus
I can see just who we are
I hope we haven't gone too far

Questions

Irene Weiss 1996+

There's a cross upon a hill, bent in the wind
And a storm that lives inside of me
It rages under my skin

My soul, it needs to find out why
Do we live this life on Earth
What is our calling here
The reason for our birth?
Is the world just a place to learn
And wake up to our dreams
Or is it love we need to find
To bring a sense of peace?

I'm sure I have been here many times before
And all that lives inside of me
Is leading me to the door
Chorus
I can see it now, it's getting very clear
And the time to understand
Is coming very near
To know the meaning of our life
I'll know...I'll know...I'll know...

Song To Apollo

Irene Weiss/Karl Weiss 1995+

I was born to sing a song to the sun in his chariot
I was raised on wonder dreams sweet and true
On the way I saw the signs that my voice
I could carry it to you...sweet and true

Oh, I'll give you all my love if you'll only be true
If you'll answer when I call
With the song I sing to you

You're the one who is just out of reach
You're the light of the sky...love and fame
They are one and the same, the artist's life
I must learn to rise up with the flame
Love to seize you...love to tease you
Sing to please you

Oh, I'll give you all my love if you'll only be true
If you'll answer when I call
With the song I sing to you

You're the one who is just out of reach
You're the light of the sky...love and fame
They are one and the same, the artist's life
I must learn how to play the game
Love to woo you...love to move you
Sing right to you

Magic Hands

Irene Weiss/Karl Weiss 1997*

There's a fire inside me...got to get it to grow
A desire inside me...got to let it show

Oh, open up the door to me
And let the feeling flow
Oh, touch me with your magic hands
My head down to my soul...oh, magic hands

There's a power inside me
Got to get it to grow
There's a lover inside me...go to let it go
Chorus...Yeah, I want to kiss the sky
Want to touch it with my hands
Make the colors of the rainbow mine
And the sunset if I can
Want to paint the soul of every tree
Till I'm rooted in the ground
Want to take the frown on Mother Earth
And turn it upside-down

There's a fire inside me...oh, it's burning my soul
A desire inside me...oh, you're making it grow
Chorus
Oh, hold me with your magic hands
Stroke me with your magic hands...magic hands...

Home

Irene Weiss/Karl Weiss 1995+

Left the place where I was born to find my home
Looked around for something more
To make my own
Alone...waiting for someone to find me
Didn't know all the thoughts that lived inside me
On my own, I was alone, on my own far from home

Found I had to take a job to earn my way
Work that took up all my time...skies of gray
Alone...searching for some kind of meaning
I didn't know that the answer lies within me
On my own, I was alone, on my own far from home

Then inside a song I found myself and some friends
To sing along...and now...the joy is within me
And I know to make it grow I start at home
Where the love shines from within my soul
From my home where all voices blend
In oneness every day...from my home, I am home

Trainride To Insanity

Irene Weiss 1995+

I know the time has come
For me to make a change
And though it gives me pain to leave
I know I must go
You've kept me on a string of ups and downs
Killed my pride...all I know is I can't seem
To take this ride anymore

Derail me from this trainride to insanity
You bring me up and you drop me down
Until I lose my mind...got to get away
To be on my own...I've given all I had to give
Derail me from this trainride to insanity...

I know the time has come
For me to make a change
And though it makes me sad to leave
I know I must go...everything's just fine
And then you go and change your mind
Hot one day and cold the next
Oh God, I just need a rest
Chorus

Sweet Lorelei

Irene Weiss/Karl Weiss 1995+

She's so beautiful but she doesn't know it
She collects men's hearts to show
She's not as evil as she was told
Her name is Lorelei and she wants to fly
But her waxen wings melt in the light

Sweet Lady Lorelei...she can be so sour too
What men won't do to hear her say
I love you, yes I do love you
She needs their love to fly, Sweet Lady Lorelei
For her waxen wings melt in the light

Oh, watch as she flies, Sweet Lady Lorelei
She spreads her wings into the light of the sky
Oh, watch her fly, Sweet Lady Lorelei
But who will catch her when she falls?

Seasons wear away the shimmer of her dreams
She won't accept that pain must come
Before her dreams can reach their peak
Some day she'll learn to find, Sweet Lady Lorelei
What her frightened child left behind
Chorus
Fly high to her castle in the sky...
Chorus

The Golden Light

Irene Weiss 1995+

I know when I look into your eyes
I see all your deepest pain, a life with no ties
And I know when I knock upon your door
You hide...a wall of protection and lies

I know when I see your face again
I'll see all you were to me, a lover and a friend
But I know when I knock upon your door
You'll hide...a wall of protection and lies

Why do you live your life all alone?
Why does the joy of love make you want to go?
I know if you open your heart you'll see
The golden light...just be who you are in this world
And give up the fight...let go...

I know that the time has come in your life
Please give this world a chance
And just let me into your life
Oh, if you open your heart you'll see
The golden light...just be who you are in this world
And give up the fight...let go...

In Our Life

Irene Weiss 1994+

All of my life I looked around and what I saw
Was a world feeling loneliness inside
As I searched the sea of faces
The windows of their eyes
I found that life is more than to survive

In our life, we must be as one
It's no surprise that the more we give
The brighter is the sun...and the time that we take
To fill the void deep within is worth more
Than a bout with foolish pride...in our life

All of my life I looked around and what I saw
Was a world feeling emptiness inside
As I searched the endless plains
And the forests deep within
I found that life was more than to survive
Chorus
In our lives we must begin to try
For we know that our time is coming near
When the power of our spirit is emerging
Chorus

Lost In The Fog

Irene Weiss 1994+

Going, going, gone
Quickly, amazing speed
From red to the palest of pinks
You fade into the distance
Lost in the fog

Going, going, gone
From red to the palest of pinks
And soon I can't remember your face
As you fade into the distance
Lost in the fog

I cry out...so much loss
I can't let you go
You just slip away as if it never was.
Never was...lost in the fog

Going, going, gone
As you slip between my fingers
And soon I can't remember your face
As you fade into the distance
Lost in the fog
Chorus

Rock Widow

Irene Weiss/Karl Weiss 1996+

Sunlight falls upon our bed in the morning
Sadness fades into my soul
Had a dream that the sun, it would never rise
On the day that you would go

I love you and you love me
I know I'm right but you disagree
We talk all night but you just can't see
'Cause when you go away
And you rock and sing
Oh God, it tears me apart...breaks my heart

When will I see you again?...

Oh, I'm counting all the days since I met you
While you count your one-night-stands
There you stood in the light of your rising star
Oh, my world was in your hands
Chorus
All these nights I'm lying awake by the phone
The day will come when you are alone
All alone

The Edge

Irene Weiss/Karl Weiss 1996+

Awaken in a dream
Wonder if it's real or if it's me
Oh, the sweet madness here in between
Truth and imagine, real and a dream

Find me in my mind
Wandering among the singing vines
Oh, the sweet music sings out to me
Free and elusive, real and a dream

We're on the edge between day and night
Finding ourselves along the way
We're on the edge
Between two worlds of light
Forming our truths along the way

Love is like a dream
Wonder if it's real or if it's me
Oh, the sweet madness, life on the edge
The joy and the sadness
Loving till the end
Chorus
