3 - Flower Power

She is a lady comes from all around

She’s many places but she’s homeward bound

Now she walks kinda funny

I think she knows

Day by day by day

Our love grows

She’s a lantern in the night

She’s outta sight


Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma

Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma

Heyyyyy

 

It turns to night, fire light

Star shines in her eye

Makes me feel like I’m alive

She’s outta sight, yeahh

Awww yeaahhhh

She’s alright she’s alright she’s alright

She’s outta sight, outta sight

 

Electric gold our love with tender care

Hills of satin grass and maiden’s fair

Now she rides through the night

On a silver storm

Sword in hand

Our fate’s torn

She’s a sparrow of the dawn

Our love is born

 

Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma

Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma

Heyayay

 

Turn to night, fire light

Star shines in her eye

Makes me feel like I’m alive

She’s outta sight, yeahh

Awww yeaahhhh

She’s alright she’s alright she’s alright

She’s outta sight, outta sight

 

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Oo yeah oo yeah oo yeah

 

And as the days pass by my mind

You are the wrong, the right

You are my sunshine

And as the night begins to die

We are the morning birds that sing against the sky

 

4 - Black Smoke Rising

I didn’t know there was a tower

Where they look out to the land

To see the people quickly passing by

This is for their own desire

As they spit down to the earth

To feel the power

Boiling in their veins

 

Oh oh oh oh oh yeah yeah

Oh oh oh oh oh yeah yeah

 

And the black smoke rises

From the fires we’ve been told

It’s the new age crisis

And we will stand up in the cold

Stand up in the cold

 

Many people are dividing

And a world apart

With just one heart

Is bound to keel and fade away

None of us will be deciding

And the fate of man is in the hands

Of he who stands and heeds the call?

 

Oh oh oh oh oh yeah yeah

Oh oh oh oh oh yeah yeah

 

And the black smoke rises

From the fires we’ve been told

It’s the new age crisis

And we will stand up in the cold

Stand up in the cold

 

Oh Oh

Oh Oh

 

We won’t stand alone, we will stand up in the cold

We won’t stand alone, we will stand up in the cold

We won’t stand alone, we will stand up in the cold

Yeahhh

 

And the black smoke rises

From the fires we’ve been told

It’s the new age crisis

And we will stand up in the cold

(repeats)

And the black smoke rises

From the fires we’ve been told

It’s the new age crisis

And we will stand up in the cold

stand up in the cold
