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…

The Ice Queen (lyrics) Mystic Doorstep


When the Ice Queen walked into town
wearing a snow white velvet gown
when the sun, lightened her face
my eyes were blinded by beauty and grace

From one day i go into the next I fly
whirlwinds taking me into the sky
and nothing else matters any more
when snow storms howling at my door

When I opened my eyes again
the day looked brighter than ever when
there was nothing more I could do
cause I knew the enchantment was true

From one day i go into the next I fly
whirlwinds taking me into the sky
and nothing else matters any more
when snow storms spin me into the core

When the Ice Queen took over the land
I felt her breathing on my frozen hand
and all of a sudden I heard a voice
Music Man you’ve got a choice

In my snow land you may always dwell
but play your music or I break the spell
and I’ll be the muse you have felt
so play the music and I never melt

The Music Man (lyrics) Mystic Doorstep

The music man thinks of the place
where the muse had passed with so much grace
was it real or was it a dream?
sometimes things are not what they seem

one thing he learned from the days
when the whirlwinds held him in their sways
music is the language of the soul
there is no escape from the whole

and if you trod along the road
take a look at the inner side
discover the path to the mystery that you hide
and open your heart for the gods favorite art

music
listen to the music
feel the music
and the siren sang
music man
play the music while you can

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

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
