Wisely Falling (Instrumental)

Wisely Falling
Written and composed by Tony Ganzer

Sometimes the wisest thing to do in life, is to know when to “fall;” to lay down station and perception for a greater purpose, only to rise greater than before.  This piece tries to capture that sentiment.

Untitled
Written and composed by Tony Ganzer

It’s cold outside, put another log on the fire,
Come closer, wrap yourself around me again
This was worth the wait, let this storm roll through our embrace
Look into me with those eyes—it will be all right

(Chorus)
As you kiss me, I feel your warmth throughout me
As you hold me, I know that this is right
As you love me, I wish for us forever
But if this is goodbye, all right…all right

The sun is creeping toward Heaven, I’m packed you’re on the floor
Why must this be our last night as lovers?  Oh tell me now.
Know I love you as I walk through that door,
You look to me down the staircase.
Good bye for now.

(Chorus)

Far and away, I would run to the edge for you
Why must this be our last night as lovers?
Girl tell me now…just hold me now and say:

(Chorus)

But if this is good bye; if this is good night; if I have to watch you walk away tonight;
if this is good bye; if this is the last time I’ll see you for now; if this is good bye…all right

The “Jace” Song

The Jace Song
Written and Composed by Tony Ganzer

I am standing on the side of a highway
My life in these bags
I look to my left I see nothing, hear nothing
I look to my right and I fall away

(Chorus)
And she cried
I stared into her teary eyes, and I prayed we’d be okay
Oh why today?

I have traveled so long to reach a place I’m happy
To find the one that makes me whole
All I need is a guide to tell me where to go from here
I look to my right and I fall away

(Chorus)

She begins to cry, and looks to “the sky is falling” she proclaims,
A look of sadness on her face is tired and worn, oh
What can I do, to take away this pain?
What can I do?
I don’t know what I did
I don’t know what I said
I don’t know why I cried like I cried

(Chorus)

April Rains

April Rains
Written and Composed by Tony Ganzer

I can see you from across the room
I can hear you in the crowd,
In the sunrise I can feel your warmth around me
and I fall everytime I hear your name

(Chorus)
And April rains on me,
she wonders how we could ever be
more than lovers, I turn away,
and she’s gone..but not for long

I can see you in my dreams,
I am lost without you
You are everything that I’ve been searching for
and I fall everytime I hear your name

(Chorus)

She walks from the room, her hand on the doorknob,
she puts on the coat she wore before she met me
and stares that unbreakable stare

She smiles.  I smile.
She stares.  She looks away.
I smile.  She smiles.
She turns.  She looks away.
I smile.  She smiles.
I walk towards her.  She looks away.
I smile, and she smiles.
I hold her.  She looks at me.

Run Away

Run Away
Written and Composed by Tony Ganzer

I didn’t know that you were crying
Until I felt the sting of your guilty tears
I didn’t see this coming, I’m at a loss for words,
Why did you run away?

(Chorus)
Send to me, an answer to my deepest fears,
And tell me
Why my love was beaten by another
I have to let you go

I tried to keep you close
Through our tough times, I tried
To make you laugh,
But you walked away and gave yourself to him,
Why did you run away?

(Chorus)

You didn’t see me crying,
As you drove away with him
You didn’t see me dying, as he kissed
Your cherry lips

(Chorus)

I’m sorry………I’m so sorry…….but I….I have to let you go
