From my 2004 recording “Underground Sun”. A song about birth, death and life.

Something From Nothing

The sun fades over the horizon
Your time is a pocket full of gold
The words you choose, the time you lose
Such a dream for a child to behold
Her love proves there are no illusions
As you swim to the surface of the pool
And the salt in the night and the fire inside and
These dreams could be real

If I could make Something From Nothing
That’s all that I have
Something From Nothing
That’s all that I have

The river is all that you imagined
And the water is deeper than your soul
A distant blue, you know it’s true
You know it’s more than you ever could have hoped
All through the night you were courageous
I heard you swear you’ll never yield
And the blood is your own and your heart is of stone and
These dreams could be real

If I could make Something From Nothing
That’s all that I have
Something From Nothing
That’s all that I have

Was I somebody else when the river was dry
Was I thinking of you or the ice in the sky
Was there more to the story than the story I heard
Is there more to your love than those three little words

If I could make Something From Nothing
That’s all that I have
Something From Nothing
That’s all that I have…..
