Tea Leaves

TEA LEAVES - Written by Carroll Bryant


I'm building my inventions like a castle in the sand
Revealing not a secret to those who understand
And if the grass just isn't greener doesn't mean I can believe
And the visions that I've claimed I've seen
Doesn't mean they're what I need
And so the story goes
How much have you seen?
The road isn't paved in gold on the way to soul

You can't see the future
It lives in a void covered in darkness
And yet you see your dreams shine through
In the colors of a rainbow
Who's chasing who?

The gypsy spirit thinks it knows
What you want to know
But you don't know
Close your eyes and I know you will hear it
You have to trust in me
And trust in the power of the tea leaves

I'm hiding my intentions like the man I am
Retaining not a moment as I'm free to just expand
And if the sky just isn't bluer doesn't mean I can't achieve
And the wind that I've claimed to have seen
Doesn't mean to blow away my dreams
And so the story goes
What are you willing to see?
You'll never walk alone on the road to soul

You can't live for the future
It never arrives because the moment is always now
N'tho you keep on getting older as you go
Night and day will keep coming back around

The gypsy spirit thinks it's free
Like you think it's free
But are you really free?
Close your eyes and I know that you will feel it
You have to trust in me
And trust in the power of the tea leaves

Face to face with time
It will blow your mind
What is yours I will make mine
And you can't shake hands with this
What is yours I will take it away
With my mind

And when the light shines down and penetrates your brain
Just like me you will be living again
And when the time is right it will go away
Just like tomorrow
Just like yesterday
And when you clutch the truth it will escape
With the lies you thought you would never say
Or repeat
And when the light turns off it will illuminate the place
And just like a passionate kiss
It will remain for days

On the edge of no return
Is a heart that just won't learn
You will learn the hard way

The gypsy spirit thinks it knows
What you want to know
But you don't know
Close your eyes and I know you will hear it
You have to trust in me
And trust in the power of the tea leaves

Trust in the power of the tea leaves
Trust in the power of it all
