Watching for the coins to fall"

Butterfly
Spread your painted wings
For an answer from the Ching

By the stream
Stretching in the rocks
Tiger on the mountaintop

Walking on the Chinese Wall
Watching for the coins to fall

Making it downLooking Back Down

Now the sun
Is rising in the East
Looking for my golden fleece

Ivory skin
Scarlet color deep
Lips that burn but do not speak


pavilions in the distance
Three misty nights
Waiting by the shore
Maybe that my lover comes no more

Red Chamber Dream
From the sky above
Ancient tale of hidden Chinese love

My shadow on the Great Wall
On the Chinese Wall
Watching for the coins to fall

Blue red silk
Burning on my chest
Go to sleep but not to rest

Stepping stones
On the Yellow Sea
Dreaming she’ll be there for me

Flags on the Wall
Walking on the Chinese Wall
Watching for the coins to fall

Junction on the Wall

Come down the clouds
To the sea of flames
From the mountain hear the cry of pain

On the Wall
Red Chamber Dream
From the sky above
Ancient tale of hidden Chinese love

On the Chinese Wall...
