    Lyrics: Kelly Polian
    © 2002 KJ Denhert

    When I was young I would swing on a swing
    My cares would go flying so far and away
    The dreams I would dream would come crashing through
    And the stars they wold cry for the last red July
    Slow as the turtles would crawl the sunset would bleed
    And the mountains stood firmly in place
    When I was a child and the music was blaring
    The angels fled fearing the last red July
    The angels fled fearing the last red July
    Red July

    * additional lyrics: Tara Sullivan

    I have lived through trouble in a world that changes always
    City streets they tremble, Haiti to South Central always
    Headlines of the ages, know a world whose rage is always
    Rising from the ashes came a signal for a change
    Be not, be not afraid
    Take this child into your heart and make her whole again
    I know that it is insane
    To think that we should fall in love to be whole again
    You've got to believe like rain
    Joy will fall again
    * See the sky has opened and the stars are falling always into my eyes
    * See the angels racing for to save the nation always
    Headlines of the ages, know a world whose rage is always
    Rising from the ashes, came a signal for a change
    Be not, be not afraid
    Take this child into your heart and make her whole again
    I know that it is insane
    To think that we should fall in love to be whole again
    You've got to believe like rain
    Joy will fall again
    I've seen the red, seen the Red July
    I've seen the red seen the Red July

    She's waiting and she's fighting for things beyond her reach
    She's walking in the wind upon a beach
    She says wash away these footprints, take them out to sea
    Gather up my fondest and my hard-earned memories
    Oh Violet
    Do you have a song for me
    I've been feeling so much better can't you see
    Be my pilot
    Show me all that's left to see
    I'll be by your side
    Steady like the tide
    Waiting for your company
    We wanted to be lovers like sunrise and the sea
    We waded in like infants undressed but with dignity
    In the swells we swam
    Splashing with our feet 'til the waves came crashing
    We were wild but we were free
    Oh Violet
    Do you have a song for me
    I've been feeling so much better can't you see
    Be my pilot
    Show me all that's left to see
    I'll be by your side
    Steady like the tide
    Waiting for your company
    I've been waiting, waiting, waiting for your company

    Last night I was dreaming
    Walking all alone
    Part of me was angry
    And I dreamed that I awoke
    I went stealing down the hallway
    Searching every room
    Nowhere could I find you
    And all the beds were moved and I cried
    There's no mercy here no mercy here for me
    There's no mercy for the people living on the street
    My prayers they don't get answered and the night won't let me sleep
    Oh there is no mercy for merciful me
    Oh I met a gambler
    Walking all alone
    It seemed like she was angry
    Maybe she was broke
    She said answer me one question
    If you think you know
    If my ship were coming in
    Do you think I'd sell the boat
    I cried…
    There's no mercy here…

    I can see you laughing working into darkness
    Sacrifice and passion won't you hold me in your heart
    Rivera turning passion into art
    Live it, love it love like water
    Give me four more cases of your love
    Give it, want it, kind of sorta'
    Give me four more cases of your love
    Monday turned to Tuesday it was midnight and quarter
    Surrounded in your language I am your helpless daughter
    Rivera paint your passion on my wall
    Live it , love it love like water
    Give me four more cases of your love
    Give it, want it, kind of sorta'
    Give me four more cases of your love
    Give me four more cases of your love

    I want to find a place where every word that I say is true
    A place where gravity is holding everyone except me and you
    And all the innocence is bursting into view
    But I’m self -conscious and aware of everything that I do
    Anxiousness is wading aimless in the water of time
    Replaying all the words, give it to me one more time
    And through a second skin the messages come through
    A glance a thwarted dance a breath when I am blue
    Can’t sit here waiting for the world to call
    Give me just one moment to take in the wonder of it all
    No I can’t sit here waiting for the world to call
    Give me just a moment to feel the wonder of it all

    Now that I found you, please don't go away
    Don't leave me wondering if your gonna stay
    I have risen, out from under this pain
    Seems we've been given a chance to love again
    Now that I found you don't you loose your way
    I can love you in my quiet way
    I can hold you when your spirit fades
    Yours is the kind of life I could breathe each day
    Yours is the kind of heart I've looked for everywhere
    Now that I found you don't you loose your way
    Oh in the morning I would love to speak your name
    In the nighttime, see you again
    Well I could be wrong, but I think it could be great
    Now that I found you, please don't go away
    Don't leave me wonderin' if your gonna stay
    Love is seldom perfect, and it's given to change
    I'd be glad if you'd take my hand and try love once again
    Now that I found you don't you loose your way
    My guitar well it's burning and it's asking me to say these things to you now
    I told you I love you in my simple way
    I could hold you when the sunshine goes away
    But I think I would be understanding
    Let me love you in my quite way
    My guitar is on fire
    Now that there's something
    When I was younger I could think of all the ways…
    Nobody's perfect and I m sure Id say I seem..the other day
    Hear me out, hear what I'd say…
    I have lived awhile please let me love you in my quite way
    And I could show you my guitar is burning and it's asking me to stay telling me to say
    Now that I found you things are ok

    I guess you figured I’d look much bigger if you fell down on your knees
    I understand that understanding falls so far beyond your means
    But oh where it had to go that night
    Makes me mad, uptight, God the band was on last night
    There is a girl that I know
    She can really steal the show
    And then there are times like now I don’t believe
    I write some songs, you bring your water color brushes and your dreams
    I wish I never heard you playing something so sexy, something so mean
    But oh where it had to go that night
    Makes me mad, uptight, god the band was on last night
    There is a girl that I know
    She can really steal the show
    And then there are times like now I don’t believe
    Oh, I guess it’s time that you leave
    Oh, I guess I just don’t believe
    I don’t believe, I just don’t believe

    That place where I used to stay
    In the swell of Sunday papers
    That place where we danced that day
    When the call came through
    I knew it'd be outrageous
    For part of the time
    I thought I was courageous
    Until you crossed the line
    The highway is steeper now
    Downshift it for the climb
    The silence was deafening
    In the place where I used to stay
    Was I under some influence?
    That was unbeknownst to me
    It makes a real big difference
    What you know and what you see
    There's no sense in the pregnant pause
    Just get it out is what I say
    That place that I call my home
    Is just the place I used to stay
    The highway is steeper now
    Downshift it for the climb
    The silence was deafening
    In the place where I used to stay
    The silence was deafening
    The silence was deafening
    The silence was deafening
    In the place that I used to stay
