Impossible Man
© Roger Hammer

Open road
Se the sun now Father
Shine your love around
Golden meadow
City forest
Always followed by the sound
He’s the impossible man
Impossible man
With the impossible man
You do what you can
He’s the one
When there’s no one there
You’ll find him everywhere
Not so easy
No one notices
Till when they do they stare
At the impossible man
Impossible man
With the impossible man
You do what you can
Evening comes
Friends around the campfire
Joining in a song
Time for living
If you’re loving then
Your living will be long
With the impossible man…


You Loved Me First
© Roger Hammer

I have got to tell you right away
How I really missed a beautiful day
As though I had nothing to say
All because I didn’t seek your help in every way
But you loved me first, and you made me see
There’s a need for you in every part of me
Why do things begin to go all wrong?
Why does weak come easier than strong?
And the short end comes up, not the long
And I forget where I belong for a while
But you loved me first, and you made me see
There’s a need for you in every part of me
I tried so hard not to make you mine
I thought everything would be just fine
That I didn’t have to drink new wine
And I didn’t have to take the time to believe
That you loved me first, and you made me see
There’s a need for you in every part of me


Earthmorning Hymn
© Roger Hammer

Open our eyes
And let us see morning, our dawn, our sun
Within our minds
Let us know the day has begun
It’s beginning that matters
The time of birth
We start our living
With every turn, turn of the earth
Show us the gate
That we may enter often along our way
When we return
With you willing this time we’ll stay
It’s beginning that matters
The time of birth
We start our living
With every turn, turn of the earth
        Where is the drum?
        The song that teaches us why
        To hear the tune
        The one meant for us is what we want
        It can’t begin too soon
Grant us a light
To chase the shadows hiding in earth and space
This as our guide
Will help us in keeping your pacea
It’s beginning that matters
The time of birth
We start our living
With every turn, turn of the earth


Party

I’m going to a party
Don’t you want to go?
Going to a party with you
Going to a party, yeah
Won’t you please come and see?
Now say you’ll come along with me
There’ll be lots of singing
Sounds you’ve never heard
Living like I’m singing with you
There’ll be lots of singing there
Listen to it all the way
Before you’re there you’ll want to stay
Party
Party
Going to a party
Getting closer every day
Living in a party with you
Living in a party, yeah
Nothing like I’ve seen before
Eternal party with you all
Party
Party


The Days Passing By
© Roger Hammer

In the hours of early morning as I hear a baby cry
I’m reminded of beginnings, of a bird that learns to fly
For in order to develop every young one breaks the tie
That would hold him back forever from
The days passing by
Oh, the days passing by
While I work to make a living and I give this life a try
I am living by the rules that to everyone apply
While thinking every minute of the ones I can defy
And still make it to another of
These days passing by
Oh, days passing by
As the sun insists on winding itw way across the sky
Like some hot and holy engine working way up there so high
I am shadowed by its power, and with a prayer and a sigh
I ask God to give me energy in
The days passing by
Oh, days passing by
As the evening light is fading I still am wondering why
There is always a beginning while something has to die
So if life is but a circle, is freedom just a lie?
Is there any true escaping from
These days pa;ssing by?
Oh, days passing by


Ribbons and Sachet
© Roger Hammer

If you come to me in ribbons and sachet
There’ll be a garden everywhere
If you show to me your palace lovingly
In every room we’ll find a world
I’ve found the one
That I’ve been dreaming of
If you walk with me in fields growing free
A brighter day will soon arrive
And if you tell to me the secrets of the seed
Another life is born
I’ve found the one
That I’ve been dreaming of
        Come to me now
        Can’t you see how
        Come to me now
        I can see how
If you talk to me the evening has to be
Forever painted in the sky
If you stay with me in all my memory
The ways we loved will surely last
I’ve found the one
That I’ve been dreaming of
In ribbons and sachet


Today and Always
© Roger Hammer

Fill this room, fill this room
With your lovin
Fill this place, fill this place
With your joy
No one else I know, no one else I know
Brings me this feelin
No one else I know, no one else I know
Leads me so far away
        Today and always
Fill my days, fill my days
With your visions
Fill my nights, fill my nights
With your dreams
No one else I know, no one else I know
Brings me this feelin
No one else I know, no one else I know
Leads me so far away
        Today and always


Saw You Mountain
© Roger Hammer

Saw you, mountain, flying high
And knew I’d want you back again
Smiling to me from the sky
Just one of the many shapes you’re in
Got the felling and it won’t be wrong
Gonna keep on rolling it all night long
And maybe there will be more to see
Cool and green not as far away
As mountains I’d seen and had hoped were mine
Getting across by the light of day
That never seemed she could be so kind
Got the felling and it won’t be wrong
Gonna keep on rolling it all night long
And maybe there will be more to see
Found my self lost between the slopes
Of grasses I’d never dreamed before
Riddles and stories and sometimes hopes
Discovered each other worth waiting for
Got the felling and it won’t be wrong
Gonna keep on rolling it all night long
And maybe there will be more to see


When I Greet the Coming World
© Roger Hammer

When I greet the coming world
Ever caring
To a few, solutions are hurled
Moving on, daring
New creation’s majesty:
How’s it going?
Far beyond uncertainty
And beyond knowing
Lifting horizons new
As I view the lost worlds I borrow
Find tomorrow
Clearer visions passing through
Now relying
On a mind just waiting to
Catch a thought flying
Lifting horizons new
As I view the lost worlds I borrow
Find tomorrow
Thinking now of long ago
And the wonder
That became a living glow
Power of thunder!
Lifting horizons new
As I view the lost worlds I borrow
Find tomorrow
