The only original tune written just for this CD, and one of my favorite written with Jon Anderson on guitar. Jon NAILED this tune - aggressive, hard hitting, and a little dark.



She cried, “Boy, I’ve got a tale to share

A circus fills my head, and my dreams are dead

And I’ve lost another day”

Looking back… the hardest cross to bear

The demons make a sound when they hit the ground

He knows they’re on their way

Sinking fast… the final grasp for air

He always tried to hide affection for his bride

And now she’ll never know

The love that’s pure and true


Shots fired… in a world full of pain

Excessive bickering and belittling

The hate lives in his mind

Precious time…the silver lines in her hair

She’ll take the 7:10 somewhere she’s never been

And leave her dog behind

The love that’s pure and true


Man of cloth…the shepherds flock awaits

The dollar takes him well past the gates of hell

His Maker always knew

Gentle hands…. They’ve come to touch the soul

Salty tears to wine, to forgive divine

The love that’s pure and true

The love that’s pure and true
