Between the Stars G. LaMonte (c) 2018 Quiet out here between all the light Leap between suns in this eternal night The promise of home never in sight In the space in between the stars Silence in here in the void in between Silence so loud it can make your ears bleed And sometimes I tether alone in the dream In the space in between the stars You think that your world is the only one Then you walk on your moon and the damage is done And the only way out is through and then on to the space in between the stars There's a place out here where they don't know the night Seven suns shine forever in light And a doorway exists out of space and of time Where you can forget who you are You will not know if you're hunter or game Here in the deep you'll surrender your name To find yourself all over again In the space in between the stars Shadows dance and draw you close You leave behind everything you know To find all the room that you need to grow In the space in between the stars There are voices I hear that I cannot sing Their love and their fury are all of a thing And I cannot describe the solace they bring Quiet out here between all the light Sleep between suns in this eternal flight And the promise of love lost to the night In the space in between the stars

Leave the Light On (c) G. LaMonte 2018 She sat on the bed and she lifted her head She laughed like a child, ah, but this was no child I reached for the light and the comfort of night She gripped my hand, and there was fear in her smile It's black in the void and the nights, they are long Day's what you make it, but the monsters ain't gone Call me a fool and I won't say you're wrong Please, leave the light on She let me take her, and she held her own And then she wept like a child, oh, but this was no child She might have run or she might have slept But she stayed in my arms, trembling and wild There are worlds out there where the suns never set I want to die there so I can forget What's under my skin that you haven't seen yet Please, leave the light on Ten days we slept, and made love in the light Then she turned on a smile, ah, but that was no smile I'm ready to show you what's under my skin If you're gone in the morning, I'll understand And with that she raised a hand and let the night in She shone like the stars Every brand, every scar Marked her as a slave, ah, but this was no slave A child of pain She'd fought all the way To land in my arms, 'cross the stars and light years away Now, we walk the stars, her hand in mine The path between suns, it's not a straight line Call me a fool, but I love how she shines When she turns the night on Yes, it's black in the void and the nights, they are long Day's what you make it but the monsters ain't gone Call me a fool and I won't say you're wrong Please, leave the light on

Tears Don't Fall G. LaMonte (c) 2018 No starshine - no sorrow Never ending line Object set in motion Lost track of time Oblivion is out there ... it's right here Cannot steer at all Livin' in space where Tears don't fall Tears don't fall - Never see the cryin' Tears don't fall - Even in the dyin' Livin' this illusion feeling nothing at all Livin' in space where tears don't fall Light years fly by Cannot count the days Don't believe in anything No sacred space Void is all that lies ahead ... it's all lies Just a taste of salt Livin' in space where Tears don't fall Tears don't fall - Never see the cryin' Tears don't fall - Even in the dyin' Livin' this illusion feeling nothing at all Livin' in space where tears don't fall Nothin' on the outside Nothin' in the head Calculate the distance Livin' and the dead Approaching the horizon Back here at the start It all adds up to zero Without a beating heart

The Fault in Me (c) 2019 G. LaMonte I can't see my face without a mirror Every child knows how light can bend That is why reflections lie Tell me what you see in me, my friend Tell me what you want from me, my lover I cannot see clearly to your soul So dark in here when you close your eyes Your kisses burn, why am I so cold? I think that I am broken from the outside in One measure of your kindness leaves me wonderin' I do not deserve this heart beats in my hands The fault in me grows wider Not enough to let you in I can't see tomorrow in this moment It's the only moment I can know The hope that lies in your eyes Disappears the second you let go It's not you, it's me ... These words get spoken Blame myself so I don't have to change Your love is something unfamiliar The fault in me grows wider To better feel this pain The fault in me grows deeper The fault in me grows true The fault in me makes room for Everything but you Now, I cannot see daylight from this window And I cannot tell if the stars still shine All I know is shadow I can't trust your heart if I can't trust mine I think that I am broken from the outside in One measure of your kindness leaves me wonderin' I do not deserve this heart beats in my hands The fault in me grows wider Not enough to let you in

I Believe in Light (c) 2019 G. LaMonte Don't believe in love Fairytales, lies Don't believe that smile So much it can hide I believe you shine I can see it with my eyes And I believe in light I believe in light I believe in salt I can taste it on your skin I believe that whisper And this tremblin' within I believe you shine I can see it with my eyes And I believe in light I believe in light And if you need me to be happy This is never gonna last Just let me be your shadow To that golden light you cast I believe in the ocean That scent lingers when you're gone I believe the rhythm in your breast Is the heart of every song I believe you shine I can see it with my eyes And I believe in light I believe in light And if you need me to be happy This is never gonna last Just let me be your shadow To that golden light you cast I believe in light

Hail the Sun 05:06
Hail the Sun (c) 2018 G. LaMonte I was all a straight line never veering from my path My own light in the dark void; nothing to distract A heart of ice on fire and every single eye Jealous of my freedom as I blazed across the sky You all golden brilliance and a warmth that radiates Your gravity more tempting than any I would ever taste Now I'm caught up in your orbit and I'm bending to your form And I find myself revolving in a circle of your warmth Hail the Sun, that is you in my life Even as you melt this ice away I become less of me, more of you With each passing day Hail the Sun I was all a straight line, now you're the center of it all And I find myself returning, ever turning as I fall Knowing in the falling I am letting go my fear And our embrace may last a million years Hail the Sun, that is you in my life Even as you melt this ice away I become less of me, more of you With each passing day Hail the Sun I was all a straight line never veering from my path My own light in the dark void, nothing to distract Now I'm dancing in your orbit and I swear I'll never leave Someday I'll crash into you, and I will cease to be Hail the Sun, that is you in my life Even as you melt this ice away I become less of me, more of you With each passing day Hail the Sun

Poison Garden (c) 2019 G. LaMonte Do not breathe too deep Careful where you place your feet Root and stem, leaf and seed Flowering vine, tricksy weed Welcome to my poison garden May you find your ease Step into my poison garden Sleep Morning's glory, night's shade, oh Elderberry, mistletoe Rain to cleanse, then bring your flame Choose your path, child; it's yours to name Welcome to my poison garden May you find your ease Step into my poison garden Sleep Sleep the night ... Sleep fore'er Belladonna's blooming there Daffodil and buttercup Peace is sure if there's enough And there's enough Opium's poppy, hemlock, yew Wormwood, foxglove, mandrake root Trumpets wild angels blow Berries on lantana grow Welcome to my poison garden May you find your ease Step into my poison garden Sleep

Heavy 03:53
Heavy (c) 2018 G. LaMonte Gravity, Baby Makes you feel like you're always falling down How do you pick up your feet after putting them down? Heavy How do you lift yourself up when the world drags you down? Heavy The gravity of every little thing is so much more than I can bear No matter what I do, I'm tellin' you the pain is always there You're so Heavy - Get your rise on Heavy - You can fly but You've got to let go of every little thing that makes you so Heavy How do you live with yourself when your anger is all you feed? Heavy You say it is what it is, but it's insanity to me Heavy The tragedy of every little thing is always eating at my soul The weight of all these tears is really taking its toll You're so Heavy - Get your rise on Heavy - You can fly but You've got to let go of every little thing that makes you so Heavy How can you hold on to love when your hear is so full of fear? Time to let go of what's keeping you here Heavy You've got it all together, but you'll never carry everything you need The weight of the world is on your shoulders makin' it so hard to breathe You're so Heavy - Get your rise on Heavy - You can fly but You've got to let go of every little thing that makes you so Heavy

Tangled 05:50
Tangled (c) 2019 G. LaMonte Bound to one another by the no-thing in between I reach for you across this endless sky Tangled in some quantum way, strangled in this Intertwined you and I We are tangled in this universe we share Tangled, I lace my fingers in your hair Tangled, I look for you and you're not there I reach for you and you are everywhere We are tangled Speak to one another, silent language of our own Dance of light across the strands of time We are what we are and all the light years in the 'tween There is no you; there is no I We are tangled in this universe we share Tangled, I lace my fingers in your hair Tangled, I look for you and you're not there I reach for you and you are everywhere We are tangled Sun touch my skin, you burn within I weep, you taste tears I dare to fly, you get high We are so aligned We are tangled One of us is climbin' / RISIN' RISIN' The othewr goes to ground / SINKING DOWN One of us is in between / IN BETWEEN The other inside out / INSIDE OUT Imperfection's circle / PERFECT CIRCLE We are starlight bound / STARLIGHT BOUND We are tangled

Song for the Dying Sun (c) 2019 G. LaMonte I speak for the sun Her dying light Travels a million years Through the night Touches my eye A spark in the gloom In this moment of grace I am the moon I am barren and broken And I sing her light She'll dance on each facet And fault in my life Sometimes I forget I don't shine on my own In this sacred embrace I am not alone So, I sing the sun I sing the light Ever remember and carry your ember On through the night I sing your rise And I sing the fade Every bit of you that lives forever Until the end of all day I sing the sun I sing the sun I sing the light Bright through my skin To the bones lie within You expose me for All that I am I run for the shade You reach for my hand I can't live without love And you love me Like nothing else can I can't live without love And you love me Like nothing else can So, I sing the sun I sing the light Ever remember and carry your ember On through the night I sing your rise And I sing the fade Every bit of you that lives forever Until the end of all day I sing the sun I sing the sun I sing the light

Again 05:41
Again (c) 2019 G. LaMonte I've seen the light we speak of when down to our very last breath The only thing in the room when there is nothing left Don't know if it's angels or a trick of the brain How I hope with all of my heart I'll see that light again I've known the love poets sing of, a once in an aeon's embrace The only soul for light years around through all this empty space My love was made of starlight I could not hold in my hand How I hope with all of my heart I'll find that love again Tell me time is not a straight line That it curls and curves spiraling in So I may find my once in a lifetime Over and over again I've walked the stars others dreamed of; lived my life, no regrets As I watch the void roll in, I've only one wish left Let me feel the warmth of your sun, once last time take my hand How I hope with all of my heart I'll find you once again Tell me time is not a straight line That it curls and curves spiraling in So I may find my once in a lifetime Over and over again Tell me time is not a straight line That it curls and curves spiraling in So I may find my once in a lifetime Over and over again
