tonight 04:36
Tonight Place where we met Candles lit Table set I wait for you Dressed in blue My best suit I didn’t know how hard to try Is this the place is this the time For making do Place looks the same Different name Similar aim I wonder if you Life renewed Will be too Tonight we’ll find All the the things we left behind Tonight we’ll try To say all the things we kept inside Time causes change Eye-sight fades A bit more gray I wipe my lens Gently cleanse A blurry gaze I knock my knife onto the ground I don’t ask for another to be brought around droplets amass on your glass as minutes pass sweat on my brow my head bowed the time is now tonight we’ll dry all those tears we used to cry tonight we’ll die to all of the guilt we kept in sight I haven’t been This nervous since Our first kiss Heart skips a beat As suddenly What I see Beautiful you walks through the door You look around and see what You are looking for

Bed Of Thorns Is this now the way we live Where is the kiss we use to give Into silence we have come Will we not try to save our love Sleeping on a bed of thorns These nights drain more from my heart Every prick at night this briar Spreads us apart So tell me now how we going to make things right All of these years of conflict and tears We’re now numb to the fight Our wounded love we have no peace in this home How will we heal our wounds to real The silence is harsh No one see’s what is real None of our friends no how we feel Deadened emotions our hearts cold Passion caring now long gone

Six Decrees of Separation seven weeks ago, cupped open and filled deep with silver, my hands, let you reach in and take the coins that you would need fare demands and seven weeks ago, cupped open and filled deep with silver, the sands,let you reach out and take its ship across the sea to other land sit doesn’t matter when or how or why you left me standing herethere is nothing to repay it doesn’t matter where or what or who that ship has brought you to I’ll still love you all the same I hear rumors that you may have fallen in with a bad crowd I pray that even if you do go overboard you won’t drown it doesn’t matter what or who or where you are while you’re out thereI’ll still love you any way it doesn’t matter when or how or why that ship brings you back here just as long as you’re okay slow down you’re movingmoving too fast these things you think you wantthey won’t last people say that I’m a fool to still believe you’ll ever say when but every day I go down to the pier to see what the ship’s dragged in it doesn’t matter when or how or why you ever come back home I’ll be waiting every day it doesn’t matter what or who or where the ship has brought you from or if you will always stay‘til then I’m holding holding fast these things you think you want they will pass seven months from now, arms opened like the sea, I’ll be here

london eye 03:41
London Eye I walked the streets this evening with you I lie awake still thinking it through But don’t chalk it up to the moon It was your eyes that shined upon me I lost my bearings immediately Now you are all I see I was reminded of Byron tonight When you looked at me with that heavenly light That others are denied I could continue to walk with you Keeping my eyes on you Trusting the Lord to direct our way Letting our paths merge into the same Bryon was right you walked in beauty tonight But does all that’s best really meet in your eyes Or are they a siren’s guise I could continue to walk with you Keeping my eyes on you But maybe your eyes are distractions instead Should I pay heed to what lies ahead I wish I could just close my eyes But I would still see you in the eye of my mind Or in my dreams tonight

phoenix 04:23
Phoenix West down the highway Brake-light in sky Sign says 180 Both know why I’m heading for disaster Been this way before Phoenix’s course Darkness behind me Sunset ahead Scared to about face The road that I’ve led Don’t want o face the darkness just to see the light Of a new day Every time, every day bursts into flame I used to try now I just fly right into shame Inside the city Dark clouds reign Sun’s been extinguished But I still remain Feeling the burn sensations Pains I’ve felt before This cyclical course Every time, every day ends up the same Everything dry nothing to cry repentant’s name Darkness about me I choose instead The grace promised to me Back where I tread I turn to face the sunrise now I see the light It’s a new day Maybe this time, maybe this day won’t be in vain This time I’ll try, Phoenix will cry its saving rain on me

return trip 03:44
Return Trip first light of dawn and everything yawns in the soft sunlight clouds are filled with orange and pink and white walking slowly, it’s so quiet and still then i run into you happenstance that rings true – i am back you are wearing pink and white and black how’re you doing, and how long has it been do you remember when you would contend that you loved me i couldn’t see how i could need you in my life or in my dreams so i flew away, off to Monterrey it was so easy to leave you behind, biding my time till i was ready to say, “i do” i forgot about you, but now that i see you i was astray now i see in white and black and gray what’re you doing, and maybe we . . . what’s that you are wearing you are getting married in Florence there’s your plane it’s black and gray and or-ange that’s good-bye then, will i see you again so you fly away, off to Italy it’s not easy to be left behind, biding my time till another enters my life

Raggedy Anne and Johnny She a rough edged girl Raggedy anne Violin tattoo Along the razor’s scars Him a straight laced guy Johnny Q. Virgin tip-toe-ing Around his stomping grounds Different veins Blood runs the same Lonely and lost Different lands Similar plans Seeking a cost She was hoping to straighten up for good In need of firm forgiving love He was willing to loosen up for once A sacrifice in the name of love They joked about running off And marrying Both though were serious Singly But neither could voice Such a strange choice And in the end They went their own way Feeling the same Never to mend She’s still hoping to straighten up for good In need of firm forgiving love He’s was willing to loosen up for once A sacrifice in the name of love

she 02:53
She She… She turned to me And she said I love you And i Didn’t know what to say For I couldn’t say I love you And I Didn’t want to hurt her For I know how it feels When love is not returned Love her like a sister More than a lover Not like a wife Not like a wife She… She looked at me And she said Don’t you love me And i Found the words to say Though not in that way I do love you Know i Did not intend to hurt you For I know how it feels When love is not returned Love you like a sister More than a lover But not like a wife Not like a wife

take my hand 05:58
Take My Hand Take my hand and lead me on For I’m lost now All these years I’ve been alone Blindly stumbling How am I to find my way When I am on my own Running from the way I am Yearning for the one And so you take my hand Walking beside me Strengthened by your helping hand Faithful always Pulling me from wandering ways Purpose fills my days Helping me as long before Like my family Chorus: Remembering my young years Remembering the way it was the way I was when I was but a child Fearless in all things timid in nothing taking every step without anxiety And so we walk along Hand in hand Stronger now than as before Suffering still coming Now with you I see a way Through these trying days As with blood when I was young We are forged as one

Anticipating a Fall My heavy heart is dangling on the line of sight. Clinging to the lip, I’m your umbrella left far behind. The leaves begin their long good-byes; the weight starts to swell. I know you will find what you seek, so fare thee well. On the horizon, I am waiting, Anticipating a fall. Terra on tilt, all is gropin’, Still I am hopin’ despite it all. And when it all comes crashing down, her cup will overflow. The run-off will sweep you up and lift you off the ground. On the horizon, I am waiting, Anticipating a fall. Maybe she’s me; it wouldn’t kill him, So I am willin’ despite it all.

Another time, another place if i wasn’t so disbelieving if i knew where i was wrong trying, but i don’t know how keep reliving all of my thoughts another time, another place and i won’t feel so bad moving on from where i lay to where i’ll stay holding to what i’ve got fighting for what i’m not . . . what i’m not i’ll go on now to change this world to where i’ll fit okay to make all my problems fade away i’ll try to feel fine i’ll lie so i’m okay . . . i’m okay free from nothin’ free from nothin’ then i’ll dream for what’s to come for it is better then my pain will then be forgotten so i sleep to feel nothin’ another world to fake this one another time, another place and i won’t feel so bad moving on from where i lay to where i’ll stay

about

Karl Miles Batavia, Illinois

I have finished recording my latest Catholic studio album "Where are the Warriors" an album which is a call to Catholic's to live our faith to its fullest meaning...we are called to be saints.

God's truth and love concurs all evil, but people must be able to feel and see this love in us. It is my hope, truth and love is heard in my music.
