The Cathedral Of The Heart

Music And Lyrics
By
Peter Link

Lately It’s Like I’m Livin’
In Some Filthy Times Square Cheap Hotel Room
Fear In Every Corner
Flashing Neon In The Night

Fighting All My Demons
Though I’m Losing In The Battle
And I’m Trapped Here In The Shadows
To The Devil’s Mad Delight

Nothing Seems To Work For Me
I Hate This Life For All Its Trouble
Give Me One Excuse
And I Could Pack It All In

No One Seems To Give A Damn
I Hate Myself For All I Am
Yet One Thing Remembered
One Thing Somebody Said
Still Runs Through My Head
Yeah It Still Runs Through My Head

If You Pierce Through The Fabric
And Get Down Beneath The Skin
You Can Open Up A Hole
And Let The Love Come In

Then Love Will Have Its Way With You
And Tear The Veil Apart
Til’ It Leaves You Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart
Love Will Leave You Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart
Yes It Will Leave You Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart

But I Can’t Seem To Get Out Of This
Filthy Times Square Cheap Hotel Room
It’s Burned Into My Mind
An’ I Just Can’t Let Go

Everywhere I Turn It’s Just A
Mucked Up Mess Of Pure Frustration
Crashing Through My Life
An’ I Just Can’t Say “No”

If I Could Just Listen To
The Two Cents Someone Tried To Tell Me
Turn My Life Around
Before I Crash And Burn

Take The Best That’s For The Taking
Shake The Habits That Need Breaking
Take A Hold Of My Life
When Will I Ever Learn To Follow My Light
Oh I Just Got To To Follow My Light
I Just Got To To Follow My Light
I Just Got To To Follow My Light
Ohhh

And It Will Leave Me Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart
I Can Feel It Now
Love Is Havin’ Its Way With Me

And It Will Leave Me Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart
Light Light
Can You See The Light?!!

Thank You Lord
I Got Shoes On My Feet
I Got Somethin’ To Eat
I Got The Air That I Breathe
An’ I Thank You For Lovin’ Me
I Jus’ Wanna Say
Hallelujah
‘Cause Love Has Freed Me

An’ Right Now
I Make A Promise To You
To Do All I Can Do
To Keep Your Love Runnin’ Through Me
An’ Your Light Comin’ To Me
Take A Hold Of My Life
An’ Turn To That Light
And Let Love Lead

And Leave Me Standing
In The Cathedral Of The Heart

Yes Love Will Leave Me Standin’
In The Cathedral Of The Heart!

Leaving You

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

I left the hills of Sicily behind me
I flew away from you
Across the Mediterranean moon
I closed my eyes and there you were
Deep inside me

But you’re still down there
A speck upon the ocean
And I sit up here
A speck up in the sky
Here in mid air
Lost in the emotion of goodbye

Leaving you
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ll ever do
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ve ever done
And oh God the leaving’s just begun

Minutes ago
I held you in my arms
Just minutes ago
Under the Mediterranean moon
I’ll never know
How I could walk away and leave you

But you’re down there
A speck upon the ocean
And I’m up here
A speck up in the sky
And oh what a pair we are
Lost in the emotion of goodbye

Leaving you
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ll ever do
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ve ever done
And oh God the leaving’s just begun

You’re moving on down there
Smiling through your tears
I fly so far away
And wrestle with my fears

Leaving you
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ll ever do
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ve ever done
And oh God the leaving’s just begun
Oh God the leaving’s just begun
Oh God the leaving…

This Song Is For The Birds
This Song Is For The Birds

This Song Is For The Birds
This Song Is For The Birds

There’s A Blue Jay On My Doorstep
Tryin’ To Steal The Laces
Off My Runnin’ Shoes
He’s Some Kinda Mad Kleptomaniac
He Can’t Help It Cause It’s In His Genes
He Don’t Read The Magazines
So He Don’t Know What Kleptomania Means

Clear Of Conscience,
But Still Guilty As Sin.

So This Song Is For The Birds
This Song Is For The Birds

There’s A Hummingbird At My Window
Lookin’ At Me While I Write This Song
And We’re Eyeball To Eyeball

Listenin’ To His Wings Beat The Rhythm Of Life
Listenin’ To His Wings Beat The Rhythm Of Life
Listenin’ To His Wings Beat The Rhythm Of Life
Hummingbird
Hmmmmmmmmm
Hummingbird
Hmmmmmmmmm

Birds:

They Don’t Know Where They Come From
Don’t Know Where They’re Goin’ To
Don’t Have Time To Wonder
Too Busy Flyin’ At The Moon
Too Busy Tryin’ To Prune
Too Busy Workin’
For The Early Mornin’ Worms
Singin’
Baby I’ll Be Comin’ Home Soon

So This Song Is For The Birds
This Song Is For The Birds

There’s A Woodpecker Peckin’
On The Side A My House
Puttin’ A Hole Where There Ain’t One
An’ It Ain’t Very Nice
I Already Got Me Some Mice
And They’re Fillin’ My Life With Their Holes

Just Like The Moles.

And Oh What A Mess
But I Got To Confess
That I Tend To Digress

Point Being:

This Song Is For The Birds
This Song Is For The Birds

There’s An Eagle In My Back Yard
Wonderin’ What Became Of America
He’s Got The Whole World On His Shoulders
Musta Gone Bald Thinkin’ About The A-Bomb
Musta Gone Bald Just Tryin’ Ta’ Stay Calm
He’s Still Worryin’ About Vietnam

Somebody Oughta Tell ‘Im.
The War’s Over.

And This Song Is For The Birds
This Song Is For The Birds

Each Mornin’ They Sing A New Symphony
It’s A Soaring Cantata To The Sky Above
An’ It’s All About Feathers An’ Makin’ Love

Tweedle Ee Deet ‘N’ Dee Dee

He’s One Of Mine

Music And Lyrics
By
Peter Link

He Walked Up On The Rolling Sea
He Turned Water To Wine
He Sits Here To The Right Of Me
He’s Family
He’s One Of Mine
He And His Brother Named Buddha
Moses Too
And Oh Yes You
And You And You

He Loved One Of My Wayward Girls
She Stuck With Him Right Through
I Watched As She Took Care Of Him
Miss Magdalene
She’s One Of Mine
She And Her Brother Confucius
Laotzu
He’s Mine Too
And Oh Yes You

[Interlude]

He Died How Could That Come To Him
I Tried Three Days To Get By
I Just Came To My Senses Then
It Was Not The End
And He Would Not Die
He Was My Son My Reflection
And After All
Who Am I To Just Stand By
And Let Him Die
He’s One Of Mine
And I Will Not Forsake My Family
He’s One Of Mine
I Will Stay With You All Forever More
Time After Time
That Old Devil Will Come In Sympathy
But You’re One Of Mine
And You Do Not Belong To Him

So Anyway…
He Kept Workin’ The Streets For Me
He Leapt Through Time And Through Space
He Swept On Down The Centuries
He Healed Your Disease
With His Infinite Grace
He And That Mother Theresa
She Healed Too
Maybe She Even Healed You

[Interlude]

He’s Still Into His Savior Phase
But I’m Proud Any Father Would Be
Ah Yes I Could Go On For Days
Singing His Constant Praise
Down On My Knees
Sing With Me Sister Mahailia
Caruso Too
And I’d Be Proud To Sing With You

I’m Proud I Guess That’s The Bottom Line
They Were All Kids Of Mine
Arturo Rubenstein
That Smart Kid…
The One With The Funny Socks
Oh Yeah Einstein
Way To Go Calvin Kline

Even Old Frankenstein
He Was A Kid Of Mine
(Well, Ya’ Can’t Win ‘Em All)
But There Was This One Design
And Boy It Worked Out So Fine
He Was The Best Combined
Yes And He’s One Of Mine

Watercolor

Music And Lyrics By Peter Link

Soft White Cinnamon
Sufferin’ Blue
You’re A Strange Design
You Give Me Life And I Give You You
And I’m Lost In A Watercolor

The Water Runs And The Edges Roll
And For That Bittersweet Second I Lose Control
Cinnamon Crashes Into Sufferin’ Blue
And I’m Lost In A Watercolor

Images And Imaginings Blending In A Tango
Carrying Me With Them
Where I’ve Never Been Before
Dancing Across The Paper
In A Maddening Fandango
Swirling Through The Universe
Like A Thunderstorm

I Am Falling Falling
Help Me I’m Falling
I’m Lost In A Watercolor
I Am Falling Falling
Help Me I’m Falling
I’m Lost In A Watercolor
In This Confusion Of Light And Shade
I Can’t Find My Way
Stumbling On Though I’m Unafraid
I Am Lost In A Watercolor

This Balance Of Chaos
Impossible Yet
I’ll Take The Chances I Take
And Get What I Can Get
Smoke Dreams Fade Into Ivory Jade
And I’m Lost In A Watercolor

Images And Imaginings Blending In A Tango
Carrying Me With Them
Where I’ve Never Been Before
Dancing Across The Paper
In A Maddening Fandango
Swirling Through The Universe
Like A Thunderstorm

I Am Falling Falling
Help Me I’m Falling
I’m Lost In A Watercolor
I Am Falling Falling
Help Me I’m Falling
I’m Lost In A Watercolor

It’s You Again

Music And Lyrics
By
Peter Link

I Guess I’ve Always Loved You
So Many Lifetimes Here By My Side
Yet Once Again We Go Down This Road

It Doesn’t Always Work Out
But In Each Life You Always Appear
And When We Meet I Know Who You Are
Time And Time And Time Again

And When You Walk In And Take My Heart
I Know It’s You Once Again
Because The Time Stops
As The New Love Starts
The Way It Always Has Been
Oh It’s You Yes It’s You Again

I Guess I’ve Always Known You
No Matter How You Change To My Eyes
I Know You By This Feeling Inside
Time And Time And Time Again

Who Knows How Long I’ve Loved You
I Only Know You’ve Always Been There
So Many Lifetimes Gone Ooo But Here We Are

And When You Walk In And Steal My Heart
I Know It’s You Once Again
Because The Time Stops
As The New Love Starts
The Way It Always Has Been
Oh It’s You Yes It’s You Again

Hmmmm
Yes It’s You
Hmmm
You Again

With My Friends

Lyrics By Jacob Brackman

Music By Peter Link

In An Hour Or Two I Will Shoulder My Load
And Head Out On That Lonely Road Again
But Just For The Moment It’s Cozy And Warm
There Ain’t Nobody Here Except My Friends

With My Friends
There’s Nothing Left To Prove
There’s Nothing That’s Forbidden Or Taboo
With My Friends
There’s No Way I Have To Be
I Like Them And They Seem Quite Fond Of Me

Nothin’ To Hide
The Heart Swings Wide
You’re Lookin’ Deep In Someone’s Eyes
You Fall Inside

One Of Ya’ Smiles
Maybe Him Maybe You
One Of Ya’ Speaks
Ya’ Don’t Care Who
There’s No Damn Difference Between You Two
An’ It Feels That Close With All Of You

With My Friends
With My Friends
With My Friends
With My Friends

With My Friends
My Friends Since Time Began
The Lord Don’t Give Much More Than This To Man
With My Friends
There’s Nothin’ To Explain
Though Kings And Kingdoms Crumble
Friends Remain

No I Never Asked To Be Born In A World
Where Men Are Out To Murder Other Men
Now I Found Me A Place So Peaceful And Safe
Where Everybody’s Everybody’s Friend

Nothin’ To Hide
The Heart Swings Wide
You’re Lookin’ Deep In Someone’s Eyes
You Fall Inside

One Of Ya’ Smiles
Maybe Him Maybe You
One Of Ya’ Speaks
Ya’ Don’t Care Who
There’s No Damn Difference Between You Two
An’ It Feels That Close With All Of You

With My Friends
With My Friends
With My Friends
With My Friends

THE ROAD

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

If you don’t hurry up
I don’t know
If my heart can take it
If you don’t get here soon
Then the moon’s
Gonna laugh and go back down

Heaven knows how much I love you
It’s kickin’ a hole in the side of the sky
An’ the moon’s pourin’ through its light
Like a river
Showin’ you
Showin’ you the way

Mmmmm

If you don’t push ahead
You should know
I may just go crazy
If you don’t hurry up
I don’t know
If the stars will still be here

Heaven knows how much I love you
The snow on the mountain was made just for you
An’ the whiteness and wonder
That pours through my window
Is showin’ you
Showin’ you the way

But looking out of my lonely window
All I see is an empty road
Just the road

And the highway rolls like an endless river
As the white lines on the road slip by
An’ the windshield wipers tell their story
As the hours on the road rush by

An’ there’s only one long road to travel
An’ it ends right here inside my heart
Lonely is the road ‘cross Kansas

And if you don’t hurry up
I don’t know
If my heart can take it

Without You

Music And Lyrics
By
Peter Link

Like A Bird On The Wing
Like The Sound Of The Wind
I’m Lonely Within
Without You

And The Rain On The Porch
And The Horn In The Street
Play A Song Incomplete
Without You

And The Albatross Flies Endless Highways
And The Sea And The Sky Are His Only Reward
And I Sit And I Watch
As He Wanders Through Life
And I’m Lonelier Than Before

And My Mind Turns Within Me Without You
And My Warm Cools Within Without You
Oh I Can’t Even Begin Without You

Though The Sweet Scent Of You
Lingers Here On My Skin
I’m Lonely Within
Without You

As The Ol’ River Flows
My Loneliness Grows
It’s Just Too Long To Go
Without You

And My Mind Paints Many Pictures
But They All Look The Same
When They’re All Painted Blue
So I’ll Sit And I’ll Wait
With My Hat In My Hand
Till I See You Comin’ Home

And My Mind Turns Within Me Without You
And My Warm Cools Within Without You
Oh I Can’t Even Begin Without You

And Now I Long For The Hour
When You Come Back To Me
It’s Just Too Long To Be
Without You

The Truth Be Told
Music And Lyrics By Peter Link

If You Write
No One Reads It
If You Call
There Is No One Listening
If You Go
There Is No One There To See

Something Is Hap’nin’ To The World
Something Beyond Control
Its A Wonder That Anything Works At All
An’ It’s Time That The Truth Be Told

I Don’t Know Why It’s Gone This Way
I’ve Done All A Man Can Do
I Scream And I Cry I Plead I Pray
But Nothin’ I Say Gets Through

Cause They All Leave Me Holdin’ On The Line
An’ The Hours They Slip On By
An’ The Number They’re Doin’ On My Mind
Is Tearin’ Me Up Inside

If You Ask
No One Answers
If You Wait
It’s A Waste Of Your Time
If You Beg
There Is Nothing They Can Do

I Don’t Know Why It’s Gone This Way
I’ve Done All A Man Can Do
I Scream And I Cry I Plead I Pray
But Nothin’ I Say Gets Through

Cause They All Leave Me
Holdin’ On The Line
An’ The Hours They Slip On By
An’ The Number They’re Doin’ On My Mind
Is Tearin’ Me Up Inside

An’ Millions Of People Sit And Stare
As The World Keeps Them All On Hold
It’s A Hopelessness More Than We Can Bear
An’ It’s Time That The Truth Be Told

Cause I Tried An’ I Tried An’ I Tried
An’ I Tried To Explain
Though I Tried An’ I Tried An’ I Tried
It Was All In Vain

Cause Nobody Cares If I’m Alive
As Long As The Goods Are Sold
It’s All ‘Bout The Bucks An’ That’s No Jive
An’ It’s Time That The Truth Be Told

Then At Last
When They Finally Answer
They Don’t Know
What The Hell They’re Doin’
But They’ll Get Help
So They Put Me Back On Hold

Something Is Hap’nin’ To The World
Something Beyond Control
Its A Wonder That Anything Works At All
An’ It’s Time That The Truth Be Told

An’ Millions Of People Sit And Stare
As The World Keeps Them All On Hold
It’s A Hopelessness More Than We Can Bear
An’ It’s Time That The Truth Be Told
It’s Time That The Truth Be Told
Yes It’s Time That The Truth Be Told!!!

Sweet Purity

Music And Lyrics
By
Peter Link

My childhood dreams are faded
And life is not at all
As I thought it would be
For everywhere I look the world is jaded
And time moves on
While I’m madly turning corners
Searching for the child in me

Sweet purity
Deep within the memory of me
I long for my sweet purity
Deep within me

Rollin’ on an’ on
An’ on an’ on in me

My shallow hopes have ended
And I am not at all as I thought I would be
In time the shattered images are mended
And life goes on
While I’m slowly learning lessons
Looking for the child in me

Sweet purity
Deep within the memory of me
I long for my sweet purity
Deep within me

And there
Behind the staggered steps of time
And there
Behind the shambles of a lifetime
I am seeking out the traces of a child
I’m searching for my
Sweet purity
Deep within the memory of me
I long for my sweet purity
Deep within me

Rollin’ on an’ on
An’ on an’ on in me
I’m searching for my
Sweet purity
Rollin’ on an’ on in me
I’ve been looking all over this world
But I think i’ll find it
Deep down within the very soul of me
