    i wish i knew you

        

    i wish i knew you and i wish i could get close to you

     

    i've had an eye on you since the first time i

    saw you at a late nightspot with a friend of mine

    although I've never met you I've always smiled at you

    but it was never the right time

     

    oh i wish i knew you and i wish i could get close to you

     

    i could walk up to you but then what would I say?

    it's not easy for me, what if you turned away?

    i never was too good at all these games you have to play

    so I just wait another day

     

    but i wish i knew you and i wish i could get close to you

     

           maybe i'm too shy - could be foolish pride that holds me back

           but if i let you get by - i know i'll always ask myself why i

           didn't try

     

      solo

     

           maybe i'm too shy - could be foolish pride that holds me back

           but if i let you get by - i know i'll always ask myself why i

           didn't try

     

       oh i wish i knew you and i wish i could get close to you

    a harder climb

     

    the ground we walk on is uncertain

    and i keep hoping you don't turn around

    where for me it's easy going

    with you it seems to be a harder climb

    you stand in place to keep from falling

    afraid to move, afraid you'll lose your life

    the risk to me is worth it

    for you it seems to be a harder climb

     

         you've got to learn to trust somebody

         else there's a whole new world outside yourself

         it's only the unseen that makes you fear

         once you're on the top the view is clear - so clear

         i'm already half way up this mountain

         but for you it seems to be a harder climb

     

    with every step you take i'm closer

    and if you could only see this through my eyes

    even with the promise that lies before us

    for you it seems to be a harder climb

     

         you've got to learn to trust somebody else

         there's a whole new world outside yourself

         it's only the unseen that makes you fear

         once you're on the top the view is clear - so clear

         i'm already half way up this mountain

         but for you it seems to be a harder climb - it's so clear

         i'm already half way up this mountain

         but for you it seems to be a harder climb

         a harder climb it so clear so clear

    you do me

     

    you got the look, you got the movement

    you make suggestions with you eyes

    you don't talk, you only whisper

    and what you tell me starts a fire

     

       so how could i take this for granted

       you love me like i was the last man alive

     

         you do me - so good

         you do me - so good

     

    you like the chance, you like to gamble

    i like the way you push your luck

    you like to tease, you like to bait me

    i like the way you work me up

     

       you're almost too hot to handle

       but i'll keep holding on as long as i can

     

         cause you do me - so good

         you do me - so good

     

       who can put me in some heaven

       who can take me any time anywhere - just you

     

    solo

     

       now how could i take this for granted

       you love me like i was the last man alive

     

         you do me - so good

         you do me - so good

         do me - do me

    the wheel

     

    the world is a wheel that is always turning

    spinning round and round like a top

    where does it all begin?

    everything to me seems to be recurring

    tides flowing in, flowing out

    it's looking oh so Zen

     

         the wheel keeps on rollin' - after it starts

         the wheel keeps on rollin' - inside our hearts

     

    love is a wheel that is set in motion

    once that it's given a push

    the rapture comes to you

    a circle full of hope and of shear emotion

    opening your heart will reveal

    that it indeed is true

     

         the wheel keeps on rollin' - after it starts

         the wheel keeps on rollin' - inside our hearts

     

            galaxies swirling off in space

            planets go round stars in a race

            everywhere wheels are set in place

            the moon circles high up in the sky

            is it any wonder I ask why

            so many wheels are rollin' by

     

    solo

     

         the wheel keeps on rollin' - after it starts

         the wheel keeps on rollin' - inside our hearts

    yearning

     

    sometimes i wonder about the way things are

    if love and hate are walkin' hand in hand

    i look around the world and see - so many are wrong

    everything within the touch of Man

     

    now look at the children

    its there inside their eyes

    they can see so clearly, i'm amazed

    but we were all like they are - once - not that long ago

    it seems as we grow older

    we lose grace

     

         oh the yearning - oh i feel inside

         ooh this yearning - oh to let the spirit fly

         let the spirit fly

     

    the spirit's crying out - it longs to be let go

    the hands are reaching up to touch the sky

    you want to know the answers

    to the questions you have asked

    you want to know the truth beyond the lies

     

         oh the yearning - oh i feel inside

         ooh this yearning - oh to let the spirit fly

     

            oh it's deep inside you - let it fly, let it fly, let it fly

            fly above

    the way i see you

     

    does your heart now feel empty

    have you lost what use to be

    a love that was one of a kind

    i can't help but wonder why

    you could let love like this die

    was it just a victim of time

     

         when i say how deep it still goes - you don't believe me

         it's tearing at my heart to know - why you don't need me

         why you don't see me - the way i see you

     

    i thought that we had it made

    now i'm watching your love fade

    tell me how could you let it go

    something's missing, something's hid

    was it something that I did

    cause when you look at me it shows

     

         i keep telling you my love grows - you don't believe me

         your giving up and i wanna' know - why you don't need me

         why you don't see me - the way i see you

     

    solo

     

         i tell you all that we could be - but you won't believe me

         it's killing me inside just to see - that you don't need me

         that you don't see me - the way i see you

    the church near craggy hope

     

    memories dance before me

    of a place I once called home

    in a valley mostly tucked away

    in a world all of its own

    with all of gods creations

    we grew up simple folk

    always in the presence of

    the church near Craggy Hope

     

    when I was just a young’n

    on nights of katydids

    me and Curt McCracken

    hid out from the other kids

    we’d wander around the universe

    with an old brass telescope

    up on a hill that overlooks

    the church near Craggy Hope

     

    July ‘57, i remember to this day

    she moved in down the road a bit

    and childhood slipped away

    then after seven summers

    when we ran off to elope

    fate would run us out of gas

    by the church near Craggy Hope

     

    now she does all the talkin’

    at least once every day

    sometimes even brings me roses

    as if I’d forget her name

    she sits them by and old Burch tree

    where a swing hangs from a rope

    as underneath its shade I rest

    by the church near Craggy Hope
