Kansas - Disco: 'Leftoverture'

Carry on Wayward Son

K.Livgren

Once I rose above
the noise and confusion

Just to get a glimpse beyond the illusion

I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high

Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man

Though my mind could think I still was a mad man

I hear the voices when I'm dreamin'

I can hear them say

Carry on my Wayward
son

For there'll be peace when you are done

Lay your weary head to rest

Now don't you cry no more

Masquerading as
a man with a reason

My charade is the event of the season

And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely

means that I don't know

On a stormy sea of moving emotion

Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean

I set a course for winds of fortune, but I hear

the voices say

Carry on, you
will always remember

Carry on, nothing equals the splendor

Now your life's no longer empty

Surely heaven waits for you.

The Wall

K. Livgren/S.
Walsh

I'm woven in a fantasy, I can't
believe the things I see

The parth that I have chosen now has led me to a wall

And with each passing day I feel a little more

like something dear was lost

It rises now before me, a dark and silent barrier between

All I am, and all that I would ever want to be

It's just a travesty, towering, marking off the

boundaries my spirit would erase

To pass beyond is what I see, I fear that I may be too weak

And those are few who've seen it through to

glimpse the other side

The promised land is waiting like a maiden

that is soon to be a bride

The moment is a masterpiece, the weight of

indecision's in the air

It's standing there, the symbol and the sum of all that's me

It's just a travesty, towering, blocking out the

light and blinding me

I want to see

Gold and diamonds cast a spell, it's not for

me I know it well

The treasures that I seek are waiting on the other side

There's more than I can measure in the

treasure of the love that I can find

And though it's always been with me

I must tear down the Wall and let it be

All I am, and all that I was ever meant to be, is harmony

Shining true and smiling back at all who wait to cross

THERE IS NO LOSS.

 

El muro

What's On My Mind

K.Livgren

Well you told
me that I was just not the one

And you left me standing out in the cold

It's been a long time and I'm so much better now

That I'm looking back and seeing it all

And for the first time there's no pain in my life

Though it's a long hard road that I've gone

We had a good thing and it made me a man

cause I know

You got me goin',pardon
me my feelings

are showing

I'm only saying what's on my mind

Well I found you
or maybe I found myself

And I think we knew it all of the time

We fit together just like a lock and a key

And we opened up each other's minds

Yeah, I was laughing 'cause there was no

room to cry

There was too much growing to do

We had a good time and it ain't over yet

'cause I know

You came from nowhere and you just jumped

in my life

And I know it never will be the same

You made me love you and now I'm home

once again

No, I never want to leave you no more

'Cause I'm attached to the better half of myself

And there's nowhere else that I'd rather be

You filled an empty, you fixed a bad broken

heart, and I know.

Miracles Out of Nowhere

K.Livgren

On a crystal morning
I can see the

dewdrops falling

Down from a gleaming heaven

I can hear the voices call

When you comin' home now, son, the

world is not for you

Tell me what's your point of view

Hey there Mister Madman, what'cha know

that I don't know

Tell me some crazy stories, let me know who

runs this show

Glassy-eyed and laughing, he turns and

walks away

Tell me what made you that way

Chorus

Here I am just waiting for a sign

Asking questions, learning all the time

It's always here, it's always there

It's just love, and miracles out of nowhere

Tell me now dear
Mother, what's it like to be so old

Children grown and leavin', seems the world

is growin' cold

And though your body's ailin' you, your mind

is just like new

Tell me where you're goin' to

It's so simple
right before your eyes

If you'll look through this disguise

It's always here, it's always there

It's just love and miracles out of nowhere

I sang this song
a hundred, maybe a thousand

years ago

No one ever listen, I just play and then I go

Off into the sunset like the western heroes do

Tell me what you're gonna do

Here I am, I'm
sure to see a sign

All my life I knew that it was mine

It's always here, it's always there

It's just love and miracles out of nowhere.

Opus Insert

K.Livgren/S.Walsh

There's a reason
for all that rhymes

It's the fact and the way of the times

It's moving emotion, it's high and it's low,

no matter where you go

There is something for all who look

There's a story in every book

All of the pages, between all the lines

So much that you can find

But there's too many empty lives my friend

And we just can't let them waste away

For this life is a precious thing my friend

And we just can't wait another day

There's a message in every world, and

It's more than the word you heard

It's moving emotion, it comes like a sea,

washing all over me

For there's nothing that we can't do

My friend, cause the spirit is with us all

And it's here and it's now, it's up and it's down

You can feel it surrounding us all

After all we're all the same, only

Difference is a name and where we are

In this crazy mixed up deal, there's so

Much that you can feel

Near and far it's where you are

And there's times when I can't contain

All the feelings of love I'll again

It's there for the asking, it's for all of

You if you would take it too.

Questions of My Childhood

K.Livgren/S.Walsh

When the sun is
in the mind sky, ho wears

A golden crown

And the soaks the world with sunshine

As he makes another round

It's been a faster year than yesterday

All the things that I had planned

And when I think I might be gaining

I'm in the sunshine once again

Well I walk the road of life among the

Strong, among the weak

And I ask them for the shortcut to the

Answers that I see

But it seems nobody understands what

Is and what will be

Oh, the questions of my childhood

Weave a web of mystery

Can you get me through these changes?

Well I sure don't know about life, but

One thing for sure

All I need is you babe, we got to get the

Golden key to unlock the door

I don't need to face a world of disillusion

I've come to one conclusion that I know

You know is true

In the game of silent searching the cost

Of love is rising

And I'm just now realizing I'd be better off with you

It's a game that I've been living, now

I need to know what's real

Can you help me find the answers, can

You tell the way I feel?

Will you stay with me forever, just

Stay with me tonight

And we can talk a bout tomorrow if it

All works out alright.

 

Preguntas de mi
infancia

Cheyenne Anthem

K.Livgren

From the mountains
to the sun, Life has

Only just begun

We wed this land and pledge our souls

To meet its end

Life has only just begun

Here my people roam the earth, in the

Kingdom of our birth,

Where the dust of all our horses hides the sun

We are mighty on the earth, on the earth

You have come to move me, take me

From my ancient home

Land of my fathers I can't leave you now

We will share it with you, no man

Owns this earth we're on

Now the wheels are rolling, hear the

Howling winds of war

Its my destiny to fight and lie

Is there no solution, can we find no

Other way, Lord let me stay

Under the endless sky and the earth below

Here I was born to live and I will

Never go, oh no

But we cannot endure like the earth

And the mountains

Life is nor ours to keep, for a new sun is rising

Soon these days shall pass away, for

Our freedom we must pay

All our words and deeds are carried on the wind

In the ground our bodies lay, here we lay.
