New Horizon (4:29) by Michael Van
a song for my gypsy brother when he died of AIDS


New Horizon 4/13/1991 ©1991 Michael VanArsdale

Wake me up tomorrow morning and point me to the sunrise
You know I got to get going if I'm gona make it before I die
Even though I love you, I can hear those old whinning wheels a callin
Let be take one more trip beyond that New horizon.

People ask me what are you looking for
I will know it when I find it
Can't sit around and wait for love to come to my door
But I believe I see it shinning
Somewhere out there, beyond that new horizon

Some people say they'll live forever
but I see myself just running out of time
They like to think they're better, but just like me they're blind
Darkness and confusion are waiting for me, When I close my eyes
but I might see a little light shinning beyond that new horizon

Hey brother can you spare a dime have you got the time
to take me on my way to find, peace of mind
I know if I just keep moving I'm bound to find,
The end of this long road of tears, it's been so many years


from Dreaming Myself Awake, released September 23, 2013

Together they form the Movers. ... more
