music & lyric by Teri Roiger

The leaves are falling down
So many leavin’ town
All the words unsaid
Unravel in our head
So many lives we lead
And stories we all weave
Creating works of art
To feed our hungry hearts

We are still here, so fresh are our tears
And guided by love we’ll be
Memories lingering, new ones blossoming
Are they real, or just a dream?

STILL LIFE, MOMENT’S REFLECTIONS
PORTRAIT OF LIFE’S IMPERFECTIONS

With ever changing scenes
And never ending dreams
That whisper in the wind
Awakening within
A secret world we’ve seen
Where we live up to our dreams
Demystifying life
Turning darkness into light

Destiny speaks, when darkness comes creeping
Guided by light we’ll be
Memories lingering, new ones blossoming
Are they real, or just a dream?

To live up to our dreams
Is harder than it seems
But once we start to shine
We leave the past behind
To make it all seem real
And let our bodies feel
Revealing truths that hide
Buried deep inside

Skies overcast, a light shines at last
And guided by love we’ll be
Memories lingering, new ones blossoming
Are they real, or just a dream?
