LAND OF THE SILVER SUN Come To The Land Of The Silver Sun Everything Glows and Sparkles and Shines Here In The Land Of The Silver Sun Everything's So Fine ALICE DEAR Alice Dear your window pane has dust again.. Alice was a fancy queen wih windows blue and green, and never kept them clean, she never kept them clean Alice Dear your window pane has dust again.. Alice was a lass who lived so fast and always stood aghast at all the things that last, oh all the things that last Alice Dear your window pane has dust again.. Tell me later whatcha gonna do? Tell me later what's become of you. Alice Dear your hesitation causes me such fascination a strange sensation I don't know what to do Calliope would sit and stare for days into the haze, I wonder at her gaze, I wonder at her gaze.. Calliope the lights are on outside again, Calliope the lights are on outside again All day long she stares into the sun, ohho, how's she ever gonna get things done, oh how's she ever gonna get things done?

LITTLE BY LITTLE Little by little gotta keep moving forward, little by little gotta keep moving on. Little by little looking at a silver sunset, little by little looking at a cold grey dawn And the road is long, it goes on and on, little by little gotta keep moving forward Little by little gotta keep moving on. Little by little trying to make you happy little by little trying to make you smile Little by little plowing right through the darkness Little by little staying true all the while And the road is long, it goes on and on, Little by little trying to make you happy little by little trying to make you smile. HEARTBREAK FALLS We both grew up looking into each other's eyes, and happiness would come as no surprise Then one day well something changed, not sure what it was..sometimes things will happen just because Don't tell me you don't love me anymore I called her my old lady, but it was done in jest; there wasn't any doubt she was the best But now these days it's different, not sure what going on You don't know what you had until its gone Don't tell me you don't love me anymore There are some for whom time moves too fast, for others, it's too slow Always seems to know just how fast to go..somewhere on our journey Time stopped standing still, now it moves ahead against my will They said she moved up north somewhere, a town called Heartbreak Falls, She was the one I needed most of all Come back to me baby, come back help me live You've taken all the love I had to give Don't tell me you don't love me anymore.

Well it's been awhile now I'm back in the game, A mixture of hope, pride, frustration and shame. But when I find you I'll accept and agree to the terms and conditions you'll set forth to me. I stood once so tall but then fell right down, thrown against the wall then knocked right to the ground But when I find you I'll accept and agree to the terms and conditions you'll set forth to me. It just seems so hard and I wonder why why why I ever would bother to learn not to cry cry cry So now there's this great big old old in my heart, Held once together but now's come apart But when I find you I'll accept and agree to the terms and conditions you'll set forth to me

BARREN LANDCAPE For there's no one to play with today For my friends all have gone away No one's around and the Sun's going down I wonder at the night that lights my way For it's not quite the same as before When the dreams in my heart were so pure Now there's a song and it calls me on I wonder what there is outside my door A barren landscape sits with washed out dreams upon the sand A silver sun light shines its washed out beams upon the land

Guess I'm just the worrying kind oh yeah And I'm half out of my mind oh no But I'm not wasting my time no more Cause I remember the days before Used to be you'd tke hold of me and never let me go Tried to see all that you could show me But now you've hurt me so But I'm not paying it any mind Cause I've been gone for a long long time. Guess I'm just the worrying kind oh yeah And I'm half out of my mind oh no But I'm not wasting my time no more Cause I remember the days before History has not been so kind to anyone who knows What can be, all that has fallen to the world below Look around.. Look around.. Cause there's no need to worry all the time (once in awhile) Cause there's no need to worry.. Guess I'm just the worrying kind

Safe Again 03:40
I look through the night to the rain as it falls to the ground So strong and the winds fill the air with a hollow deep sound all around But don't be frightened, baby please don't cry I can't stop the tears from falling but I can wipe them dry Lights flash through the night, electric arrows that cut throught the dark And clouds collide with the air as it whispers and shakes you awake But don't be frightened, baby please don't cry I can't stop the tears from falling but I can wipe them dry And we'll tell the thunder go away, come again some other day yeah some other day And we can wait until then But tonight in the dark with the feeling it's all gonna end I'll hold you close til you sleep and you dream and you feel safe again But don't be frightened, baby please don't cry I can't stop the tears from falling but I can wipe them dry.

Mystery and magic in the setting of the sun Watching light that falls below the wall when day is done And what do you make of that? Sleeping in the shadow world where darkness comes to play Shadows form the shapes imagination forms the way And what do you make of that? Floating in an atmosphere of golden rays of light Remembering a silver sun that shines on through the night And wake to find another day another setting sun And weep for those who fall away when journey's day is done And what do you make of that? And lead me down the golden path where sunbeams come to play Shadows form the shapes imagination forms the way And what do you make of that?

The light's falling down from the branches outside The leaves greens get dull as they're trying to hide The night that is coming won't turn me away And promises dreams only night time can make Late afternoon sun evening is still far away Late afternoon sun shine for the end of the day The sun rays advance, the darkness retreats The air grows so calm, the grass smells so sweet Fears fade away from the warmth of the glow As winds that sweep gently the rivers that flow Late afternoon sun evening is still far away Late afternoon sun shine for the end of the day I love you in summer, I love you in winter Always a treat for my eyes If hopes fall apart into fragments and splinters You'll always be sure to rise Late afternoon sun evening is so far away Late afternoon sun shine for the end of the day.

“COME TO THE LAND OF THE SILVER SUN—EVERYTHING GLOWS AND SPARKLES AND SHINES—HERE IN THE LAND OF THE SILVER SUN EVERYTHING IS FINE

But Alice Dear knew better

Once Upon A Time there was a Queen named ALICE DEAR who lived all alone in a giant castle with her cat Calliope. She was held prisoner inside the castle; there was no rain and all day long the land was suspended in a dark grey haze where the sun appeared silver.

Alice would look out of her window at the townspeople below and could see and hear all their problems (LITTLE BY LITTLE, HEARTBREAK FALLS, TERMS&CONDITIONS)

She looked out over the (BARREN LANDSCAPE)

She called upon magic to bring rain to the WORRYING KIND)

One night her wish was granted, but Alice and Calliope had to endure a powerful storm tht gave them fright...then comfort and sleep finally (SAFE AGAIN)

The next day everything was glorious (GOLDEN PATH)

They all lived happily ever after (LATE AFTERNOON SUN)..

Maybe you will too
