Track Name: Sweet Thing
Baby, Sweet thing,
Don't ever let me go.
Hold me closely;
Feel my love grow.

I want you, I need you.
I am ashamed of myself.
You stole my serenity,
And put me up on the shelf.

You left me, you said you
Had some things to do.
Other lovers--
Did they hold you too?

I feel so strange inside--
Watching for any sign.
Stars shine in the sky.
I pray to them each night:
Save me from my misery.

Baby, Sweet Thing,
I am lucky to have loved you.
You gave yourself to me--
Oh, what a dream.

But the past is a memory.
Lord knows my head is full of them.
Sometimes I wish that I
Could drain each thought from my mind.

Begin again
Stronger and more self-assured.
Knowing what I know
But forgetting all the pain.

But I guess if I want to grow
Then pain is what I need.
It's wisdom in my bones
Making me stronger for tomorrow.

Stronger so I can go on.
Stronger for tomorrow,
So I can go on.

I feel so strange inside--
Watching for any sign.
Stars shine in the sky.
I pray to them each night:
Save me from my misery.
Track Name: Libra Moon
It frightens me to think
that I may never love again
when my heart is so damn big--
it reaches out to everything.

You see, I am meant to care
for someone, somebody out there.
I want to carry you on my back,
and defend you if the dead attack.

But at times I get so down I fear
that no light will fill up my moon.
Then I reach for my guitar and sing
this hopeful tune.

Everything is gonna be all right.
Yeah, everything is gonna be all right.

If I can't love a single one
then I'll have to love everyone.
I'll spread my love all over the Earth--
light it up like the Sun.

I want to hold you up in the light.
I will shine for you when you don't feel bright.
I want to pick the lice from your hair.
I'll do anything to show I care.

And as long as you stand by me
I will stand by you for eternity.
No lies, deceit, or pain--
just a love that falls like a gentle rain.

But at times I get so down I fear
that no light will fill up my moon.
Then I reach for my guitar and sing
this hopeful tune.

Everything is gonna be all right.
Yeah, everything is gonna be all right.

If I can't love a single one
then I'll have to love everyone.
I'll spread my love all over the Earth--
light it up like the Sun.

My moon used to be so full
with a glow everyone could see.
But now it is crescent shape
since her love don't shine for me.

At night I walk these streets alone--
the hopeless steps of a hungry ghost.
No light to guide me home
and no love to call my own.

I am praying on a new moon.
Track Name: Luna (Sweet Thing)
Oh, this life
is so sweet.
Can't put my finger on
this feeling.

Oh, lord, you blessed me,
Made me music-man.
I'm so thankful for
All that you've given.

No, I've never been myself.
I've never been myself.
I've never been myself til now.

All my dreams
No longer hold me.
I feel I'm waking up,
And now I can see.

Oh, lord, you blessed me,
Filled my heart with love.
I'm so thankful for
All that you've given.

Yes, I'm finally myself.
Yes, today I am myself.
Yes, for once I am myself right now.

Sweet Thing, hold me.
Feel my love grow.
I want you; I need you.
I have to let it show.

The black dog will not bite.
You'll keep me in the light.
And the love that was no more
Will burn forevermore.

Sweet Thing, hold me.
Fill my heart with a glow.
Strange man, I am.
I laugh because I know.

You called my name for years.
You kissed my endless tears.
Out of fear I used to run.
Now I say thy will be done.

Not a hungry ghost no more.
Now love's knocking down my door.
Every star is meant to shine,
and the light is yours and mine.

You can't stop my shining!
