Lyrics

Old Rivers

by Elizabeth Moliter

Where do I find the holy Truth?

The place that captures the thrill of youth?

Old rivers carry old dreams away.

But I’ll walk those shores,

‘Til my dying day

 

Verse 2

Days grow shorter, the mirror cracks

It’s not the same and I can’t go back.

Old rivers carry old souls away

But I’ll walk those shores

‘Til my dying day

 

Chorus

 

Wash me clean again

O waters wide

Set me free at last

By old River’s side

 

Verse 3

The car door slams, the wheels turn

She’s gone away and she won’t return

Old rivers never say goodbye

They don’t look back

And they never cry

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

Years can crush your strength away

Beat you down to dust

Call you names and run away

Leave no one left to trust

 

Repeat First Verse

 

Chorus

 

Lyrics

Lorelei

by Elizabeth Moliter

 

A little left of center

She changes like the weather

Her solitude and crying songs

Hold her world together

 

Verse 2

She crawls when she should run

She runs when she should stay

Opens up to the joys of life

Then pushes them all away

 

Chorus

Sweet Lorelei

Hey Lorelei

Come on home

Come on home

Lorelei

 

Verse 3

The city can comfort

Or swallow you whole

It knows how to heal and save

Or bite you like the cold

 

Repeat chorus

 

Bridge

You can’t stop the rain

So why even try

Ride out those days

To a sunny sky

Lorelei, Lorelei

 

Verse 4

The book of her life

Half written by now

Holds pages of promises

If she would only allow

 

Repeat Chorus

 

lyrics

Road to Heaven   by Elizabeth Moliter 
Song of the Year Finalist


All my ambitions are buried low
Beneath this wayward skin
And the shining vessels filled with oil
Are empty once again.


The devil still gets in sometimes
Tries to drive the angels out
But the road will wipe the dust away
Till there's nothing left to sin about.

Chorus:

Road to heaven
Miles away
Road to Freedom
My Glory Day

When the old days are said and done
I'll bless them in my prayers
The road was straight but strewn with rocks
And now, I climb the stairs

Repeat chorus

The dreams are more subdued this time
Passion has its place
Maybe peace can heal me now
That I've left behind the race


Repeat chours

lyrics

 Like a Stone    by Elizabeth Moliter

Won't you walk away
And leave me with my heart?
Those words you never say
Are tearing me apart.

Chorus:

Feel like a stone
Old and alone
Trying to roll back home

Won't you set me free,
These old chains just weigh me down?
And this pain that I've been carrying
Has knocked me to the ground.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:

Engraved upon this stone
The years we've known
Are filled with grime
And dulled with time.

Say a prayer for me
To wash you from my mind.
And I'll say a prayer for you
When I've left you far behind.

Repeat Chorus

 

Lyrics

Man on a Wire   by  Elizabeth Moliter

Again the night won't leave you in peace
You grab your coat and you walk the streets
Thinking too much of what you might have been
If you'd taken the paths of other men.

This time tomorrow will be the same
Except for your coat and a gentle rain
Playing old records, round and round in your head
Dreaming of sleep in your empty bed.

Man on a wire
Balancing there
Trapped on the line
Between hope and despair
Is anybody there?

Troubles find you when you're least aware
And lovers tempt you when you're unprepared
You miss the turn to reach your journey's end
And lonely nights will beckon once again

Questions linger
Memories fade
Were they dreams
Or a parade?

Someday maybe if you try to pray
The night will end in a different way
And simple sleep will come for you at last
And the walking nights will run back to the pas
