Track Name: Roadio Rose
Roadio Rose rides a way with the sun
setting low in the sky
The horizon is gold.

Paint the night snowy white
and the day winter rose
The black rider will break silver chains


Roadio Rose shoots a gun. The rainbow
follows rain, and the fame
of her name follows her.

Paint the night snowy white
and the day winter rose
The black rider will break silver chains


Roadio Rose tells the stranger to go
to the West with the sun as it sets.

Paint the night snowy white
and the day winter rose
The black rider will break silver chains


Paint the night snowy white
and the day winter rose
The black rider will break silver chains
Track Name: Cambridge Road
i met him on the Cambridge road
in the old city, long ago
the two of us were lost and found
he took me home, it was not far...
Track Name: for Thomas
..stars...up in the sky
the moon is full of light tonight
and i remember your brown eyes
the difficult times
the happy times...
Track Name: River of Light
..come on now be gay
don't be afraid
a river of light runs through your life...
Track Name: a Tregic Tale of the High Seas
...and the ship goes slow
and the water is cold
and the men in the crew
ask the captain what to do...
Track Name: Empire City
Empire City
where buildings are made
to reach up to heaven
and pierce the white clouds

Kings in there glass towers
reach for crowns
Above it all angles look down...
Track Name: Angles will Kiss You
..lets drink to these children, that love has made
may God in his castle, help them to travel,
on there way.
and sing to me sweetly, Mama mine
PaPa, don't bring me water.
bring me wine...
Track Name: Satellites
..traffic moves on down the road
listen to the radio
think of outer space...and satellites...
Track Name: This Old City
This old city knows a million stories
but not like you, and not like me
right in the middle of it stands a chorus
and in the buildings hero's dream.....
Track Name: Little Houses
Flying saucers in the sky
all the aliens are quiet
and one day over the rainbow
blue birds fly...
