" Gold & Fire "

Words & Music by Dennis Massa Performed by Dennis Massa

I walked away from this world I was given I turned my back on the dead and started living All my human faith was shattered my heart was out of tune Old enough to make a difference Too young to go back so soon In my room there are many Undiscovered spoken truths

My life was unfolding like a lover I once knew Only take what you need and never squander Break away from this world of desire Though the rules be unspoken require GOLD & FIRE To Move it along talking about New Generation GOLD & FIRE Young and old So many changes going on

In this life there are many From this restless generation Who seem to have fallen for the wrong situation Only take what you need and never squander Break away from this world of desire Though the rules be unspoken require GOLD & FIRE To Move it along talking about New Generation GOLD & FIRE Young and old So many changes going on

GOLD & FIRE To Move it along talking about New Generation GOLD & FIRE Young and old So many changes going on

I want the truth for you Do follow me You are the light of my Life I just wanted to let you know Cause its so precious and ever so Fragile The life we're given here Whats so precious is to have you here with me To hold you my love

I will come for you Be prepared for the day Until then remembering All the dreams we shared Cause its so precious and ever so Fragile The life were given here Whats so precious is to have you here with me To hold you my love

If we lived here in Time Theres no time where we live Theres no you, me, or mine Cause we have been here before We have always been in our minds

Cause its so precious and ever so Fragile The life were given here Whats so precious is to have you here with me To hold you my love

" TRAMP IN TIME "

words & music by Dennis Massa Performed by Dennis Massa

How long will it take For me to break You're beating me to death and I lost my breath Telling me how insensitive I was To be just a Tramp out on the street Needing some change With my memory mired in the mud For the damage done Still remains in my Blood

Well boy this is gonna hurt Stop your crying now Don't you know its hurts me more than you So, shut up and take it like a man Forget about it man I put it in the past But I can't Forget I 'm just a Tramp in the Mud For the damage done still remains in my blood

As the years drift by I never cry, I never cry, I never cry Patching up the holes in my heart I headed down the road

A TRAP IN TIME I 'm just a Tramp out on the street Trying to undo whats been done But the damage still remained in my blood Now you sit and wonder why you cry alone With your blood stained hands And your Ghost's that chill you to the bone Now you realize how insensitive your were.

Well the damage remains I give it no place in my life For the damage done No longer cuts me like a knife.

I'm still a TRAMP IN THE MUD but I'm clean And I carry no shame Got nothing but Time and no one to blame

I 'm just a Tramp out on the street No shoes on my feet No Money to eat But, Hey your'e just a Tramp like me

" Wind 7 "

(c) copyright Dennis Massa Performed by Dennis Masa

I heard your voice in the Wind Echoing my name once again After I drift away, drift away YOU returned my Echo I can feel the blood pump thru my veins Pushing me further from what remains If not for you I'd go insane Until I hear your echoing I can believe, I can receive The gift of love you give to me Our self love is all in vain Only brings us inner pain and if I remain the same When I go. oh, oh, oh I'll have to pass This way again I am the voice within the wind Echoes heard from within After you drift away, drift away and come face to face with me You will see more clearly Suddenly You are Free

Whispering Wind you called my name Sending me Your Sweet Refrain Whispering where did you go ? Just Return My Echo

End: ( repeat and fade out ) I heard your voice in the wind Echoing my name once again After I drift away, drift away you RETURNED my echo
Drift away, Drift away You returned by Echo Drift away Drift away fade out............

______________________________________ Song # 7 "the Great Mystery" words & music by dennis massa (c) copyright Dennis Massa Across the great divide where time does not exist lies the Pre-historic bones of mans violent past. but if you have a little faith of a mustard seed what will you sacrifice to save your soul for what you do not need. If i sleep on my journey i will fall down on my knees when there's no room in the inn will the strangers welcome me then i'll awaken to my saviour walking on the sea of light then we can hear higher vibrations coming down from the Great Mystery. coming down from the Great Mystery. I now know, also, that the possibilities of following this new will, a life without violence. And a new direction lies in every moment of one's life. So if you feel like crying No your not alone the secret lies within you calling you home with a little faith you can move this mountain freely drink the waters from heavens holy fountain. so don't sleep on your journey thats the Great Mystery if you make room in your inn then the strangers comfort thee. you can walk out on the waters of life, without sinking then you can higher vibrations coming down from the great mystery can you hear higher vibrations coming down from the Great Mystery Then you can hear higher vibrations coming down from the Great Mystery.

"You Got Nothing On Me" (c) words & music by Dennis Massa

1- I did it all over again, When will I ever learn, To just say No, and just watch the World Turn I tried to satisfy my needs in another,
What I could of found inside of me.

I gave you my life, I gave (up) my soul, But I did'nt give up my heart of gold, So take control of what really matters. Believe in yourself, and let things go.

Cause, You got nothing on me, That can make me stay here with you, You got nothing on me, That can hold me against my will. I gave you my life for a momentary Thrill, But I’ll never give away my heart to you. ( Musical Interlude) at 1:50

2- Never Trade all your treasures For a Fools Gold Returns to Dust And the Love grows Cold.

Cause if you really have the " Spirit of God ", You’ll see that’s your only friend.

I gave up my Life I gave up my soul, But I wouldn't give up my Heart for You,

I gave you my life Life, I gave you my soul, But I couldn't give away my heart to you.

So take control of what really matters. Believe in yourself, and let things go.

Cause You got nothing on me, That can make me stay here with you, You got nothing on me, That can hold me against my will. I gave you my life, for a momentary Thrill, But, I will never give away my Heart to you............

" Hidden Garden "

words and music by Dennis Massa Performed by Dennis Massa

I reached inside for you in your hidden garden Through your eyes they told me a story What are you growing in your Hidden Garden The forest whispered thru the trees Get far away don't even go there Cause this could be the end of Innocence for you

I fell asleep in your Hidden Garden Like I did so many times before Now I see that I'm weaker I've grown weaker So, I've got to get back to my innocence once more.

Got to get back to my river Where the waters wash over me Where truth, where the wind of truth blows free Where no hidden garden can put an end of innocence for me

I fell asleep in your Hidden Garden Like I did so many times before Now i'm Stronger Stronger than ever Since I 've been back to my innocence once more Now I'm Stronger than ever Since I've been back to my Innocenc once more

Song # 11 Gravity #2 Finale words and music by Dennis Massa (c) 2015

Your my Gravity Surrounding me You keep me balanced Suspended in my dream Cause I've got something Stronger than life Separated from the colors of light Gravity, I will always be Loving you Faithfully I'm floating thru floating thru Floating thru the Universe with you

We live forever and never fade We've been here before You can't be swayed So go ahead and Fly, ( fly fly fly ) Gravity, you saved my life

You balance me. eeh, eeh, - eeh Your my Gravity You lifted me up and calmed me down You raised me up to receive my crown

Now I have something Stronger than life That nourishes me

I promise to be Loving you Faithfully

If you're the Gravity Then I'm the Moon Suspended in your love Far above the clouds I see the Universe I see it in you Floating thru Floating thru Floating thru The Universe with you
