Million Miles By Forrest Hill There’s a hole in the wall where the light comes in, There’s still a chance if we just begin, There’s a silver lining beneath a cloudy sky. Who knows what the weather may bring, The clock is ticking, and the bells will sing, You can’t get to heaven, watching the world go by. Give me some time, Give me peace of mind Let the sun come shining through Gonna put on my walking shoes, Shake off all these blues And walk a million miles with you. Seasons come, and seasons go, Your love is a refuge where the four winds blow, Just sitting on mountain, shadows at my feet. I don’t care what will happen to me, Between the devil and the deep blue sea, Let’s take a walk, baby, and journey to the east. Give me some time, Give me peace of mind Let the sun come shining through Gonna put on my walking shoes, Shake off all these blues And walk a million miles with you. There’s a hole in the wall where the light comes in, There’s still a chance if we just begin, There’s a silver lining beneath a cloudy sky. Who knows what the weather may bring, The clock is ticking, and the bells will sing, You can’t get to heaven, watching the world go by. Give me some time, Give me peace of mind Let the sun come shining through Gonna put on my walking shoes, Shake off all these blues And walk a million miles with you. Give me some time, Give me peace of mind Let the sun come shining through Gonna put on my walking shoes, Shake off all these blues And walk a million miles with you. Walk a million miles with you. Walk a million miles with you.

New Horizon 02:49
New Horizon By Forrest Hill I remember the last night In my own bed Wondering what it was I wanted to leave The next day I was stranded In a field by the side of the road A world of wonder stretching out at my feet There’s a new horizon Running with the mystery You can go where the four winds blow Baby come along with me There’s a new horizon We’re heading for the judgement day Everybody thinks they’re gonna live forever Got no time to live today I remember the ten days From St. Paul to Seattle And the people I meet in the railroad towns Caught a freight in Montana Carrying twenty riders Laughed all the way to Spokane, the glory bound There’s a new horizon Running with the mystery You can go where the four winds blow Baby come along with me There’s a new horizon We’re heading for the judgement day Everybody thinks they’re gonna live forever Got no time to live today Jump in the saddle We’re headed for the mountain tops They say there’s a lot of magic down in Mexico Riding with the north wind Until the heat and the temperature drops Instinct will be our guide There’s more to the world than meets the eye There’s a new horizon Running with the mystery You can go where the four winds blow Baby come along with me There’s a new horizon We’re heading for the judgement day Everybody thinks they’re gonna live forever Got no time to live today

Crazy Days 03:25
Crazy Days by Forrest Hill The wind blows turnstiles through the yard Through smoke filled air of passing cars In every war there’s a state of grace Hidden beneath a women’s face And, honey in your crazy ways Baby in these crazy days When the world seems so insane You make me feel alright Every time I see your eyes I start to bring the world inside Pierces like a lightning bolt The dark where the rebel child last spoke And, honey in your crazy ways Baby in these crazy days When the world seems so insane You make me feel alright When that cold snow falls from the sky Covers the shadow in a sea of broken lies There’s a light on that snow-covered ground I’m waiting in the shadows, for you to thaw me out In the spring we’ll start again As broken hearts begin to mend Plant the seeds of love’s rebirth As toxins sink into the earth And, honey in your crazy ways Baby in these crazy days When the world seems so insane You make me feel alright Times they say are getting worse With culture wars and higher births But my love sees a better day Lying in your arms again I don’t care if they say there’s no time For foolish games and this ordinary life I’m not the one to save the world anyway Just making sweet love, that’s all I’ve got to say As the wind blows turnstiles through the yard Smoke filled air of passing cars In every war there’s a state of grace Hidden beneath a women’s face And, honey in your crazy ways Baby in these crazy days When the world seems so insane You make me feel alright

Perfect One 03:24
Perfect One By Forrest Hill You’re my light and you’re my setting sun You bring me peace when dark clouds come Hold on tight and don’t let go Feel my heart I feel your soul Don’t have to search the seven seas You’re the only perfect one for me Doesn’t matter what the future may bring You’ll always be the perfect one for me You’re an angel in a sea of endless blue Time will never cast a shadow over you Flowers bloom, where ever you may go So free and easy I love you so Don’t have to search the seven seas You’re the only perfect one for me Doesn’t matter what the future may bring You’ll always be the perfect one for me You know my secrets, you know my faults You’ve seen me stubble when my mind gets caught But like a river we bend and flow I feel you heart Do you feel my soul. Don’t have to search the seven seas You’re the only perfect one for me Doesn’t matter what the future may bring You’ll always be the perfect one for me You can do whatever you please Cause baby you’re the only perfect one for me Doesn’t matter if we ever disagree You’ll always be the perfect one for me

Nomads in Love By Forrest Hill Robbie’s always looking for a place to hide, couldn’t stand to see the light. Gary’s on a back street, trying to keep warm. Julie’s all alone living up in the Bronx, growing food in an abandoned lot. And I’m still searching for an easy way out. Won’t you take me away Won’t you throw me a line Won’t you give me your heart baby and tell me you’re mine There’s a place for us in the sun Let’s walk around the word like nomads in love, Nomads in love. Jimmie’s got a back that’s about to break, from all the work he’s got to do. Sarah’s online, searching for another date, tempting fate. Sunshine’s living large in her mind, flying her flag for Palestine. And I’m just looking for a way to fly. Won’t you take me away Won’t you throw me a line Won’t you give me your heart baby and tell me you’re mine There’s a place for us in the sun Let’s walk around the word like nomads in love, Nomads in love. Will we really get that far, or will we die like a falling like a star, burning quickly in the night. Let’s spread our wings and fly, Across the crimson sky, Floating like a satellite. Janet ran off and married a Scot, bought a house and a garden plot. Jades touching rainbow in the middle, of the day, she says. Dimi’s on the outside living high on the street, fighting a war that will never cease. And I’m just sitting on a grassy hill. Won’t you take me away Won’t you throw me a line Won’t you give me your heart baby and tell me you’re mine There’s a place for us in the sun Let’s walk around the word like nomads in love, Nomads in love.

Floats Away 04:48
Floats Away By Forrest Hill Time is turning in a capsule Ebbs and flows like the visions in her head Her mind is telling her there’s more to the picture But she cannot find a way in All the world seems like a dessert Friends and family are waiting for her there The guiding force, they’re the rhyme and the reason But they do not touch her anywhere Lays down to sleep and she floats away Cries in his dreams and she floats away Alone she walks into the sea then disappears And she floats away, she floats away She’s ascended to the mountain top Her eyes are open and forever she is lost Her past calls to her from the valley down below But the bridge is broken, and she cannot cross All these worries seem so small Just momentary shadows moving slowly through the fog She shakes his head and can see no reason why We take for granted our own lives Lays down to sleep and she floats away Cries in his dreams and she floats away Alone she walks into the sea then disappears And she floats away, she floats away Dust clouds are carried on the wind And ashes from her soul are carries away with them From the sea to the plains to the cold fertile ground Nature plants a seed to begin again Lays down to sleep and she floats away Cries in his dreams and she floats away Alone she walks into the sea then disappears And she floats away, she floats away

Sacred Ground By Forrest Hill I feel a chill, blowing in the wind Makes me so helpless sometimes Feels like were going through another breakdown Lovers falling by the wayside We want to change the world outside Stop all the chaos and the crime But there is little that can be done until we stop the war in our mind. All the myth’s that transcend tomorrow Have lost all their meaning today. We’ve purged the soul just to pay the piper While the eternal drifts away We got to get back to our mother Stop scorching sacred ground When we heal the wounds in our heart We’ll turn this old world around Love is the seed that we sow Faith is the courage to let go Standing here naked on this sacred ground Together we will win or lose our souls Break from the past, don’t let it hold you back Daylight might be just around the corner Let the water flow, into the shadow go Let’s drop the defense of our boarders. Love is the seed that we sow Faith is the courage to let go Standing here naked on this sacred ground Together we will win or lose our souls Love is the seed that we sow Faith is the courage to let go Standing here naked on this sacred ground Together we will win or lose our souls

A Part of Me 04:35
A Part of Me By Forrest Hill I crave your mouth, I need your touch I'll walk through empty streets Food won't nourish me Until I hear the sweet song in your steps I hunger for your children playing laugh Your hands that glow so warm Your smile that shines like pearls I want to eat the sunbeams from your hair. Everywhere you go I see everything you see And every time you feel, I feel Cause you’re all a part of me I love you the only way I know how So close that your hand On my heart becomes my hand So close that my mind dreams when you fall asleep Everywhere you go I see everything you see And every time you feel, I feel Cause you’re all a part of me The colors of the setting sun are gray without you The light at the break of dawn turns pales without you Everywhere you go I see everything you see And every time you feel, I feel Cause you’re all a part of me Everywhere you go I see everything you see And every time you feel, I feel Cause you’re all a part of me

Guardian Angel By Forrest Hill When the raindrops start to fall And your roof is caving in When your dreams have turned to dust And your whole world starts to spin. I’ll be there to comfort you Dry away these trail of tears And lead you to a distant shore Beyond the valley of our fears I’ll be your guardian angel I’ll be your saving grace I’ll be your refuge When the storm clouds fall I’ll give you shelter In the pouring rain If the road starts getting rough And your choices start to dim If your heart feels like it’s breaking up Like you’ll never love again I’ll be there to hold your hand Help you make it through the night Keep you safe from that old devil’s heart And carry you back into the light I’ll be your guardian angel I’ll be your saving grace I’ll be your refuge When the storm clouds fall I’ll give you shelter In the pouring rain I’ll be there through the thick and thin I will never let your down Lift you up when you’re crippled with regret. And take you back to higher ground. I’ll be your guardian angel I’ll be your saving grace I’ll be your refuge When the storm clouds fall I’ll give you shelter In the pouring rain

Kiss Goodnight By Forrest Hill I’ve been drifting on this storm for days Can’t find my way back home Seems like these clouds are here to stay Heard it on the radio So play me a tune from a crying ocean Sing me a song of a lovers twilight Before I go to that land of darkness Just one more song and a kiss goodnight When I’m caught up in these ways of matter Can’t hear any higher call Anchored down onto this mountain Got my back pressed against the wall Dance with me close with your head on my shoulder Whisper sweet words in the calm silent night Before you go this wish I offer Just one more song and a kiss goodnight There are times when shadows play Like lightning in the sky Reflecting all the hopes and dreams of a child Strumming along to that evening star Writing down another song Bathing this wound in this old guitar Hope the pain won’t last too long So sit with me close as I tell you my story Hum with me softly a sweet lullaby Before we go to those dreams of glory Just one more song and a kiss goodnight

River of Stars By Forrest Hill I’m alone in the fog I’m a flyer at night The wind keeps on howling I need you tonight ‘Cause you’re my stone on the water That floats on the waves Surrounding my soul Lighting the way. You’re a river of stars In this bleary-eyed world River of stars In this bleary-eyed world I’m walking on ashes I’m looking for clues You float like a feather Come into my view Like a flickering flame You flow through my limbs And I rest in your arms Where the world begins You’re a river of stars In this bleary-eyed world River of stars In this bleary-eyed world Open up and welcome me here Let your spirit dry away these tears So we can rise In perfect light Into the night I’m falling through space Searching for ground I’m looking for balance I’m lost and I’m found Cause you’re my stone on the water That floats on the waves Surrounding my soul Lighting the way. You’re a river of stars In this bleary-eyed world River of stars In this bleary-eyed world River of stars In this bleary-eyed world
