Joy to See Your Joy (Words & Music by Sharon Knight & Winter) Intro Ch La La La Hey V1 What ruby star, burning crimson light Sears me through & through, amidst the lantern light Squeezing every drop of nectar From the fruits of life Ch1 Oh what joy to see your joy See your power come alive Oh what joy to feel your joy Feel your strength burn with mine La La La, La La La, I celebrate the starlit night La La La, La La La, drunk on dewey starlight. V2 With copper blade I call you, star of seven flames Your voice a mighty weapon, upon which I am slain I sing my siren song until I’m ravished by your love Ch2 V3 Emeralds & rubies adorn her lovely frame She appears before me with tresses all aflame Adorned in starry splendor of the moon-emblazoned night Ch3 & 4

Wait by the window and see See what haunts me Spark of some distant desire Fanned into fire What vision of freedom is this Arising from blackest abyss A flame that burns steady and true Lighting my way back to you Yeah, Solace comes when the mind is free Blazing free, enflaming me I burn for life, love and liberty What kisses my passion bestows On another who knows Yet deeper we tangle our hearts Weave our love into art Within the depths of my heart There lies a lamp of great art Alighting the jewel in the stone Remember what we’ve always known

My eyes glitter sorrow To see you turn to leave Knowing that the road you walk Will lead you far from me Late last night you touched me Lips that mesmerize Scarlet Visions dancing In your jeweled eyes You burned your love into me like a brand Left my body trembling where I stand And the scent of your skin on my skin brings it back to me Unfolds in my mind like a seed of memory It’s the scent of your skin that laces through my dreams And feeds my soul till you return to me My eyes watch the horizon Weeks stretch on like years I rub my skin in sandalwood And you are here Your taste of love is burned into my brain Sweet intoxication mine again And the scent of your skin on my skin brings it back to me Unfolds in my mind like a seed of memory It’s the scent of your skin that laces through my dreams And feeds my soul till you return to me
6.
I just cannot get you out of my mind Hard to unwind First you tease me then you turn me away What can I say, I like it that way Have mercy on me please Your smile brings me to my knees You are a rose, you are a rose Lies wild in the countryside I covet your beauty, the way you look in my eyes I feel your thorn in my side Oh your beauty slices through me like rain I savor the pain In your brooding heart I feel no stain Isn’t it plain, what I stand to gain Oh the twisting of a cruel lover’s game Isn’t the same Without obsession lent to fuel the flame I know I’m to blame, Oh what a shame

If I were to ask you what one thing could save you What do you want most in your heart Would you believe that you can have your dream, deserve it That is the grail that you must serve Cast your magick spell In to your wishing well Wish on a star fervently and from your heart Bring it to life in your minds eye Draw on the well frequently every day That is the grail, that is the way Cast your magick spell In to your wishing well

Sleep deep, and dream of becoming A glittering jewel on a sea of stars Floating in the deep well of space Shine No one to save us No one to take from us Only up to us To dream diamonds out of dust Wish by the well For a fountain of freedom Flowing out from the jewel in your heart Vision is only as good as you make it Shine Wake to the light of a litany of rainbows Coloring your eyes in a splash of sun Sing for the signs of a self-made creation Shine We are the radiant creation We are the song of salvation Linking out hands in celebration Remembering who we are
10.
A promise kept and a pact is made Stones of truth are laid To build our fortress strong and proud Strength she sings aloud Edge of time and the word was said Creation come to life Gods awake from their starry beds And take the fury to wife Song of the soul is a lonesome cry But have you any choice? There’s no sweeter lullaby Than truthfulness of voice Word of the will is an aching need No rest until she’s filled No richer fruit than from the seed On which your honor is spilled Chant the spell and be it done Word and will are one Raise the cry for all to hear Illusions come undone I gave my word and I saw it through Dreams they all come true I reign from my fortress strong and proud Strength I sing aloud Song of the soul in splendor grows In the light of the starry dew Blossom of love from the heart it grows To your own self stay true Chant the spell and be it done Word and will are one Raise the cry for all to hear Illusions come undone Chant the spell and be it done Word and deed are one Walk the talk within the heart Freedom’s prize is won
11.
At last my love awakens When the morning comes Breathlessly I’m taken Into this shrine of love Shine Shine your blessings radiant one Fall into my eyes, two become the one Oh my soul is burning candy colored red When you paint your scarlet visions all through my head I rise up out of sorrow Like a golden sun Beloved won’t forsake me No matter what I’ve done Yours the kiss that I desire Wake the muses to inspire You’re the fire I my heart You’re the one I dream about When all the lights have flickered out You’re the fire in my heart Through the gates of life Beyond the reach of death We will walk together This mystic lovers’ path
