My Shining Sun
And When We're Dancing
Since You've Been Gone
You've Got to Hide Your Love Love Away

Have You Seen the Taj Mahal

My Shinin’ Sun – Hank Woji

It’s been so long since I’ve seen your smile
You always chase the clouds away
And you shine so bright in my darkest hour
Always there to light my way

You are the one
My shinin’ sun
When all is said and done, little darlin’
You are the one

I missed your tender warm embrace
On cold dark winter nights
But now you’re here baby by my side
Turn darkness to delight

You are the one
My shinin’ sun
When all is said and done, little darlin’
You are the one

 

Now, seasons come and seasons go
You know they always will
But when I hold you naked in the dark
The time it just stands still
Oh so still

Well I’ve traveled far cross the ocean wide
I’ve shown the world a thing or two
Been everywhere that my heart’s desired
Now I only want to be with you

Cause it’s been so long since I’ve seen your smile
You always chase the blues away
And you shine so bright in my darkest hour
Always there to light my way

You are the one
My shinin’ sun
When all is said and done, little darlin’
You are the one


And When We’re Dancing – Hank Woji

She’s a wide eyed poet, a Taoist at heart
A true artist of ways and means
And she teases me with riddles, inspires me with her art
Now she’s found her way into my dreams

I say we’re so very different now, it’s so plain to see
She says oh no, I don’t believe what you’re saying
You got to look a little deeper now, we’re more alike than you think
Take my hand, I’ll show you the way
I’ll show you the way

She’s a kind gentle woman, a true friend to me
I’ll love her come rain or come shine
When I’m lost in the darkness, turns her light so I can see
Behold, she’s a vision divine

I say we’re so very different now, it’s so plain to see
She says oh no I don’t believe what you’re saying
You got to look a little closer now, we’re more alike than you think
Take my hand, I’ll show you the way
I’ll show you the way

Oh, and when we’re dancing, swaying gently to the night
Yeah, when we’re dancing, hold her in my arms so tight
And when we’re dancing, see the sparkle there in her eyes
You know it feels just like heaven to me
When I go dancing with Crystal Marie

Well, she moves just like an angel, brings the devil out in me
And her smile set my heart on fire
I was stunned by her beauty, fell to her sweet mystery
When we kissed those sparks started flyin’

I say we’re so very different now, it’s so plain to see
She says oh no I don’t believe what you’re saying
You got to look a little deeper now, we’re more alike than you think
Take my hand, I’ll show you the way
I’ll show you the way

Oh, and when we’re dancing, swaying gently to the night
Yeah, when we’re dancing, hold her in my arms so tight
And when we’re dancing, see the sparkle there in her eyes
You know it feels just like heaven to me
When I go dancing with Crystal Marie
Oh yeah, it feels just like heaven to me
When I go dancing with Crystal Marie


Since You’ve Been Gone – Hank Woji

Can’t find the words to say,
When the tears get in my way
Don’t know know which way to turn,
And my heart just feels the burn
You came and turned my whole world upside down
Left me nothing, not a clue
I curse your name, but oh I miss you so
Since you’ve been gone
Since you’ve been gone

Was it everything it seemed?
Now it feels just like a dream
I was holding you so tight
Nothing ever felt so right
I never saw the change come over you
And I don’t know why or how
Now I just try to make it through the day
Since you’ve been gone
Since you’ve been gone

Since you’ve been gone questions haunt my weary heart
But do I really want to know
And in time I’ll find my way
But it’s so hard to let you go
Yeah, it’s so hard to let you go

The emptiness inside, still keep reaching out to find
The mem’ry of your smile, dancin’ lightly through my mind
And ever since you turned away
Images I once held so true
Just like echos, they slowly fade away
Since you’ve been gone
Since you’ve been gone


Have You Seen the Taj Mahal – Hank Woji

Have you seen the Taj Mahal?
Well, I will take you there
Walking through the moonlight
Jasmine in the air
In the shadows of the moon
We’ll watch the peacocks dance
I could hold you for a thousand years
In our lovers trance

Musk and sandalwood fire
Rising flames of desire
Two hearts beating as one

Since the day our eyes first met
I’ve wanted only you
Hold you tightly to my heart
Lover o’ so true
I’ve known your gentle touch
I hunger for your kiss
I long for you so very much
Lover I do miss

Musk and sandalwood fire
Rising flames of desire
Two hearts beating as one

We are one another

I walk with you now in a realm of dreams
Life’s sweet illusion, nothing as it seems
And have you seen the Taj Mahal?
Well, I will take you there
Walking through the moonlight
Jasmine in the air



Takin' My Time – Hank Woji

Wanderin’ through this world
Lookin’ to find my way
Knowin’ there’s something there
Takin’ my time

Thinkin’ about the girl
Was it the way she smiled
Thought I saw something there
Takin’ my time

Life is a lonely road
Easy to lose your way
Lookin’ for signs of hope
Takin’ my time

And Love holds out an answer
Faith rides on a dream
Hope springs all around you
Eternally

Seasons they come and go
Don’t pay it any Mind
Sharin’ an empty cup
Takin’ my time

Time is a patient God
Follow you to the end
Laughin’ along the way
Takin’ my time

And Love holds out an answer
Faith rides on a dream
Hope springs all around you
Eternally

Wanderin’ through this world
Lookin’ to find my way
Knowin’ there’s something there
Takin’ my time

Thinkin’ about the girl
The morning she went away
Livin’ a broken dream
Takin’ my time


Medallion – Hank Woji

The medallion you gave me hangs from a silver chain,
Restin’ lightly here upon my chest
A reminder of all the laughter and the tears,
And a true heart that just won’t rest

When I close my eyes, Darlin’, your face before me shines,
With a smile that could surely warm the sun
And the memory of your touch, so gentle ‘pon my hand
Always knew in my heart, you were the one

Now where have you gone my fair lady of the plains?
Was it just so hard for you to stay?
It’s a vision so clearly my minds eye recalls
As I remember that lost summer’s day

And the love that you gave me, in poetry remains
But it leaves me now so hungry and cold
Oh, I would pay a king’s ransom to gaze into your eyes
And whisper the words, I love you so

 

Then came the rain, sky crashin’ down
Then came the heartache and the pain
As the flood waters rose on the bayou that night
I had a feelin’ I’d never see you again

The medallion you gave me hangs from a silver chain,
Still restin’ lightly here upon my heart
A reminder of all the laughter and the tears
God be with us together and apart

Now where have you gone my fair lady of the plains?
Was it just so hard for you to stay?
It’s a vision so clearly my minds eye recalls
As I remember that lost summer’s day


Princesses and Kings – Hank Woji

In your eyes I see visions of delight
In your eyes I see shadows in the night
In your eyes I see promise in a dream
In your eyes I see things I’ve never seen
In your eyes I see true hearts taking flight
In your eyes I see comets shining bright
In your eyes I see fire and I see rain
In your eyes I see things I can’t explain

In your eyes, In your eyes
I see visions of the future in your eyes
In your eyes, In your eyes,
I see visions of the future in your eyes

In your eyes I see wonder and surprise
In your eyes I see truth and I see lies
In your eyes I see certainty and doubt
In your eyes I see anger lashin out
In your eyes I see times once we were young
In your eyes I see songs we left unsung
In your eyes I see penance for our sins
In your eyes I see where the path begins

In your eyes, In your eyes
I see visions of the future in your eyes
In your eyes, In your eyes,
I see visions of the future in your eyes

In your eyes I see hope and I see fear
In your eyes I see mountains disappear
In your eyes I see memories gone by
In your eyes I see rainbows in the sky
In your eyes I see love and I see pain
In your eyes I see ancient dragons slain
In your eyes I see princesses and kings
In your eyes I see these and other things

In your eyes, In your eyes
I see visions of the future in your eyes
In your eyes, In your eyes,
I see visions of the future in your eyes
