Dance With You

I wanna dance with you under the moonlight
And lead you through the rhythm of my life
Reveal the truth hiding inside my heart

I wanna sing with you over the rain
Find the harmony to your sweet refrain
And voice the chords hidden inside your song

Under the moonlight
Over the rain
You're the rhythm of my life
I wanna dance with you

I wanna cry with you tears of wine
Make the memories that we'll stitch in time
and fill the missing pieces in the stars
I wanna stand with you on top of the world
And laugh so loud that everywhere we're heard
and catch the dreams we've been chasing for so long

Under the moonlight
Over the rain
Rhythm of my life
Your sweet refrain
I wanna dance with you
I wanna dance with you



Try To Believe
Words & Music by Norm Zabala

You try to believe
You try to be strong
You've been living your life
Without him for so long
Is he the one that you need
Is he the need that you want
Will this moment precede
A conclusion foregone

So if I open my heart
Will you show me the way
Will you make a new start
Or will you laugh in my face
Will you tell me indeed
Or still try to be vague
Now the plots interweave
What will the characters play

Feels like I'm sinking when I don't know what you're thinking
But If we don't wanna leave it then we might as well reveal it

It may be wrong it may be right but it won't change overnight
Got me believing that you're seeing exactly all the feelings
That I don't want to show you
That I try not to show you

I think it's safe to say that we've got nowhere to go
Somehow we've got to find a way or we'll just have to let it go

Maybe the timing just ain't right but it won't change overnight
At least please tell me that you're seeing exactly all the feelings
That I don't want to show you
That I try not to show you

I try to believe
I try to be strong
I've been living my life
Without you for so long
Are you the one that I need
Are you the need that I want
Will this moment precede
A conclusion foregone





Missed Endeavor
Words & Music by Norm Zabala

I woke up in a place
Long ago erased
Circumstances made this direction
Impossible to retrace

And there you were with me
But life just seemed to come right in between
Leaving in it's wake, this wonder of
What might have been

But what if it was true
How would we really do
If a dreamscape could blend
Into reality with many a possible end

But I guess we'll never know
So if I may I'd like to say just one other thing
I share with you this missed endeavor
With this song I sing

But what if it was true
What would we really do
With a dreamscape that could blend
Into a reality with many possible ends

But I guess we'll never know
So there's really only one last thing I can do
I share with you this missed endeavor
With this song for you

Voice Of A Prayer
Words & Music by Norm Zabala

An overwhelming sadness just came over me
Accompanied by helpless despair
Lord help me find the answers so that I can be
More than just the voice of a prayer

Got the burden of others resting on my back
I'm starting to struggle with this heavy load
Pondering losses and the fortunes we lack
I'm starting to stumble every step on this road

Sometimes I'm a stranger on a parallel plane
Without a care or a frown
Nameless and aimless like a whispering rain
Laying my worries gently down on the ground

But if you should meet me in this alternate stream
Pretend not to know me, don't stop to chat
Don't want to deceive you with my avatar dream
So just walk on by, and leave it at that

'Cause when I recover from this momentary slumber
I'll be back here trudging through snow and sand
Dragging my load over and under
Every obstacle to where one day I will stand

An overwhelming feeling just came over me
Accompanied by lightness of air
Lord gave me an answer, told me to believe
Believe in the voice of a prayer

Under The Carseat
Words & Music by Norm Zabala

What have you done
You gave your heart away again to
someone who will just misplace it
She'll hide it in her purse
Until she can't find the keys
Then it'll all get emptied on the bed and lost under the blankets

How many times will she break your hopes and dreams
And leave all the pieces
under the carseat next to her lipstick and cream

So you better move on
and find the one who holds you, feels you, breathes you
Picks up all the broken parts
to fix with her own
Won't need to think twice
'cause you will know it's right this time
Just gather up your strength until that day is done



Light A Fire

Words & Music by Norm Zabala

Windshield wipers ticking away like a metronome in the rain
Visions of a subway dwarf laughing inside my brain
Funny what a year can do
What you can win from the things you lose

So I don my former disguise and stand naked on the stage
Holding back the tears from the years overshadowed by envy and rage
The storm is passing over now
I can finally see far beyond the clouds

Where there's a new life that's beginning
Upon a road much less deceiving
Now with every new dawn breaking...with every new dawn breaking
We'll light a fire...we'll light a fire

Didn't get much sleep last night, Jersey girl was in my head
Shoulda told her not to drive, I could've taken her home instead
She called to say she made it back ok
And that she found a new place to stay

Where there's a new life that's beginning
Upon a road much less deceiving
Now with every new dawn breaking...with every new dawn breaking
We'll light a fire...we'll light a fire



How The Music Lingered On

It's the same long road on which we travel
The same rewards that we seek
As the puzzle slowly unravels
What our pain tries to reveal

Too many hearts have died in sorrow
With bitter tears locked deep inside
So don't be slaves to your own egos
And don't be prisoners of your pride

If you think this road is getting longer
Just count the footsteps we left behind
If the love keeps getting stronger
The load gets lighter with every mile

So guard your dreams guard them close now
But don't let them be your God
'Cause you may still be here tomorrow
Even if your visions let you down

Coda

Picture the lights going out forever
And there's no one chanting for one more song
Well at least we'll still remember
How the music lingered on
