Dark End of the Day

Will you ever go down down down
Into the town town town
Where the angels would kneel down and cry
And tell the stories of the great wonder why

The angel said:

When you walk on the road of life
You can see tears rolling by
You feel sorrow and you feel joy
Thousands mountains you climb
Never reaching your aim
You’re waiting for something
That won’t come

Black waves of raging water
Will throw you ashore
And the hazy dew of newer mornings
Will call out for more

Like a torch you will light up
For a while… you’ll glow
But you fade … fade away
Into the dark end of the day

Fade away …Fade away
Into the dark end of the day

Knocking at My Door (lyrics) Mystic Doorstep

At dawn she came to town in a white light velvet gown
When the sun rose upon her face
My eyes were blinded by beauty and grace

And when i opened my eyes again
The day looked brighter than ever when
There was nothing I could do
Cause I knew the spell was true

From one day I go, into the next i fly
Whirl wind’s taking me into the sky
And nothing else matters anymore
When the muse is knocking at my door

While she took me by the hand
On the doorstep of a mystic land
All of a sudden I heard a voice
Music man you’ve got a choice

In my land you may always dwell
But play your music or i break the spell
And I’ll be the dream you have dreamt
The siren’s song that was heaven sent

From one day I go, into the next i fly
Whirl wind’s taking me into the sky
And nothing else matters anymore
When the muse is knocking at my door

The Blues and the Muse (lyrics) – Mystic Doorstep

I got the blues, I got my shoes
I got a muse and nothing to lose
carry my guitar on my back
I pick a flower on the lonesome track

the troubadour writes. the troubadour sings
about dirty angels losing their wings
the troubadour dives into the sea
riding the waves….on a desert tree

and I’m going round and round
feel the rhythm hear the sound

a place for noble man to go
into the alleys of the soul
into the gutters of the mind
into the dawn…. that was left behind

I got the blues. i got my shoes
I got a muse and nothing to lose
carry my guitar on my back
I travel the roads….and don’t look back

and I’m going round and round
feel the rhythm hear the sound

Lyrics ‘Catch a Lightning Ray’ by Mystic Doorstep

When I feel the lightning
wanna strike me today
and rains of confusion
are coming my way

I will be running
find a place to hide
on the slippery roads
I try to stride

I gotta keep on going
along the way
I gotta keep on running
and catch a lightning ray

And I see a shelter
for the thunder and rain
but when I’m getting closer
I feel linked to a chain

And I start to wonder
what’s this all about
am I alone here
yet chained to the crowd?

And all things down
are they like above?
I know… I am
I guess that’s enough

I gotta keep on going
along the way
I gotta keep on running
and catch a lightning ray

run boy run
run boy run
run boy run
catch a lightning ray…

The Siren Won’t Sing Today (lyrics) – Mystic Doorstep

The siren used to come out and play
like a muse she’d showed the way
her songs blew the night away
and gave birth to a brighter day

Slowly. slip sliding away
it led the senses allay
like a flower in a field of may
like a soul on all saint’s day

Now the shores are full of hearsay
about the siren stranded today
how the sun turned her into clay
and the siren won’t sing today

Stranded today
on the sand she’ll lay
like a flower in may
that was blown away

Rolling away
no more songs to play
the siren
won’t sing today

she won’t sing today
the siren won’t sing today

Venus had a crush on Mars (lyrics) by Mystic Doorstep

It was the talk among the stars
Venus had a crush on mars
Breaking news in space
About Venus and her embrace

She said baby my desire
Is to set your heart on fire
Melt down the senses
Inspite of the consequences
Intoxicate your mind
And than leave it all behind

Mars was turning red
When he heard what venus said
He couldn’t believe his ears
And could only burst out in tears

How can you desire
To set my heart on fire
The stars will tumble down
And the sky brows a frown
And the whole universe…
Will face the immortal curse…

It was the talk among the stars
Venus had a crush on mars
It was the talk among the stars
Venus had a crush on mars
Venus had a crush on mars

Under Your Spell (lyrics) Mystic Doorstep

I don’t know why
I’m feeling this way
a burning lust
to come out and play
the music flows
and the melody grows
the troubadour ‘s alba
at the dawn of day

When a cool breeze
calls the sun to rise,
I sense the air
of Paradise
Timeless words
the troubadour wrote
while he sang his songs
of love devote

Under your spell
Heaven and hell
Down in the well
Rising in swell

When the night departs
from the morning gate
Can you still recall
the serenade
the troubadour sang
while the night began
now the melody lingers
a twist of fate

Under your spell
Heaven and hell
Down in the well
Rising in swell

Hanging on a Dream (lyrics) Mystic Doorstep

I see some shapes around
when my brain is thinking of nothing
but a shiny dew
and than you
bang against my mind
there must be something to find
before it’s found…

so don’t throw your soul away
on this shady day
take my breath away
while i’m locked inside your walls

and your time
these minutes between
christmas eve and halloween
such a pretty way
you’ve build these walls of fire..
like mountains so great
a translucent state

there is no time to wait
to climb your wall
look out don’t fall
no reason to scream

i’m just hanging on a dream

Into the Ocean of Love (lyrics) Mystic Doorstep

When she smiles from her golden lips
a drop of honey slowly drips
into the reign of a sudden whim
you find yourself on a limb

it will take your breath away
steal your night and day
through the caves of mystery
you swim into the ocean of love

and while a crazy beat conquers your heart
a burning heat will tear you apart
and you will dive into the sea
and you will love what you see

it will take your breath away
steal your night and day
through the caves of mystery
you swim into the ocean of love

Vampire (lyrics) Mystic Doorstep

She’s a vampire
but she won’t bite
she’s a vampire
she’s out of sight

she’s a vampire
she steals your heart
for the moon
is ready to part

on the night shift
asleep at day
a pale diamond
a moonlight serenade

Vampire…

she loves to play the cello
a little slow and mellow
move her fingers on a string
and make you think
you’re the king

Like a fairy
with round cheeks
she always finds
but never seeks

Vampire…

on the night shift
asleep at day
a pale diamond
a moonlight serenade

Vampire…
