Lyrics

"Long Live Your Tomorrows" by Chris Wilhelm

 

I went out walking, just the other day

Shoes on a wire, farewell yesterday

A forest for the lonely, a temporary home

Seldom iridescent, on an earthly tongue

 

Here’s one for the forgotten, may you find your way

50 cents and a dollar, we all got dreams to pay

For I’ve seen the eyes of the interstate

For I’ve seen the lifted, and those who just could not wait

 

CHORUS

Long live your tomorrows

May you carry on

For I’ve seen them weak

And I’ve seen them strong

 

For I’ve dreamt in colors something seldom found

Mountain-to-sea, Daddy long-legs upon my trail

I learned to pay attention and drop everything
These houses on stilts could never walk away

CHORUS
Careless remarks on an open mind
These daytime ghosts, these trees have eyes

So many variables, it was just a catalyst
Dreamin’ of an ocean, filled with words

 

CHORUS

Pictures of the Sun
by Chris Wilhelm

 

Tryin’ to get back to something new

She was staring at an awkward hill

They said to get back from the gates

But the truth is coming and it just can’t wait

 

We roamed and rambled through the fields

She had to take the steering wheel

Then they came and we didn’t know what to do

They can’t take your dreams from you

 

(CHORUS)

Every time you wish it weren’t true

They will stand in front of you

You’ve got something they just cannot take

You’ve been walkin’ on an unfamiliar lake

 

I can’t tell you what everyone’s done

She was taking pictures of the sun
They can’t change my mind or how I heal

They can’t riase the price on how I feel

 

They want to put a wall around us all

Keep us from the people who did nothing wrong

But me I’m still tearing mine down

‘Cause I want my friends around

 

(CHORUS)

Every time  you wish it weren’t true

They will stand in front of you

You’ve got something they just cannot take

You’ve been shakin’ off that old familiar ache

 

Time waits for no one

There’s beauty in a day

Sometimes you stumble

Then you find your way

Lyrics

Weekend by the Sea
by Chris & Andrea Wilhelm

 

It’s true what they say memories fade
And they often change with time
Some like to hide or stay by the flame

Others like to run away

It’s a long, long ride but we can get there tonight
As long as you’re by my side
We looked off the pier when no one was near
You showed me the satellites and stars

(CHORUS)

The songs of the sirens

are calling from crystal caves

We swam out to meet them

We jumped out into the waves

 

The music played soft

As it poured off the roof
It hung like the moss from the trees

The sand it moves as the hermit crab

Builds his house for two

 

The fisherman looks into the dark

He knows there’s fish in the sea

He casts out his line into the night

His reflection is all that he sees

 

(CHORUS)

The songs of the sirens

are calling from crystal caves

We swam out to meet them

We jumped out into the waves

 

The songs of the sirens

are calling from crystal caves

We swam out to greet them

We jumped out into the waves

Lyrics

This Thing Called Life

by Chris Wilhelm

 

‘Cause I ain’t askin, for your permission

To do, what I was born to do

You may have your, own vision

You may have your, own truth

So won’t you listen, then ask your questions

May you find hope, wherever you roam

I’m goin’ up to the Blue Ridge Mountains

Gonna meet my savior on a clear afternoon

 

(CHORUS)

This thing called life

We’re all in it together

Through the stormy weather

It’s not all bad news

I hope you feel connected

To the folks around you

May you look out your window

to see a brighter day...

 

The things we do, when no one is looking

Gonna jump on the table, gonna go through the roof

When I was just a little boy, there was so much joy

In singing these songs

Cause nothing was wrong
