about

Roger Hornsby with Karen Sifton Atlanta, Georgia

It was decided in early 2015 to record a number of Roger’s most recent original songs. Gareth Asher and his talented lady, Madison Laughridge, are featured on several songs. The album has become known as The Only Dream and touches on the doubts, hopes, the fears and the Love that this being in a body brings.
We hope that listeners will support future music by sharing this page with others. Thanks

Track Name: Intro - Breathe
Breathe
Relax and fully breath
Close your eyes and let your breath
Lead you home
Track Name: The Only Dream
The Only Dream

Is it ok - Can you handle my abandon?
Do I frighten you? Should I try to restrain?
I hope not for I know no way to stop
These feelings welling up inside of me again and again

I hope you’re feeling for me in some small part
These powerful feelings that I’m feeling here for you
That you hear some small voice calling my name
As I hear these thunderous echoes crying out for you.

Chorus /
Falling, falling-I keep falling into you.
Deeper, deeper and deeper-there’s no end it seems.
Over and over-I hear the same sweet refrain
Love’s the only answer-Love’s the only dream.

Sweetness is the world that surrounds me
It touches everything I say and do
Joy’s the state I’m in
Ever since that moment that I gave myself to you.

Falling, falling-I keep falling into you.
Deeper and deeper-there’s no end it seems
Over and over I hear the same sweet refrain
Love’s the only answer-Love's the only dream.

Falling, falling-I keep falling into you.
Deeper and deeper-there’s no end it seems
Over and over I hear the same sweet refrain
Love’s the only answer-Love’s the only dream worth dreaming.

Row, row your boat gently down the stream,
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream.
Row, row your boat gently down the stream,
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream.
Track Name: Deep Joy
Deep Joy

You keep holding me, you keep helping me
Gently calling me back
From this edge that you always seem to find me dancing on
Dreaming for me, whispering to me
Trying to keep me on track toward this light we both see before it’s gone.

(Ch) Will you always believe in me?
Is there nothing I can do to shake your faith?
There’s this guilt that maybe I’m leading you on
But then there’s this deep joy that you keep wanting me to stay.

Here in the dark of night, just before daybreak
I awake from this dream where everything we have is gone.
I turn and pull you close to me, wondering what it will take
To ease these doubts and fears that want to rule my mind all alone.

(Ch) Will you always believe in me?
Is there nothing I can do to shake your faith?
There’s this fear that maybe you’re leading me on
But then there’s this deep joy that you keep wanting me to stay.

(Br) Woman…Oh woman…
I want so much to give you everything you need.
Woman…Oh woman…
I’m so afraid that loving you means losing me.

You offer me your hand, your love, I strongly cling to them
I’m a thirsty drowning soul adrift in this great lake of time.
I offer you my hand, my love, it’s now I choose to swim.
I feel a smile cross your face ‘cause you know just what we will find.

(Ch) Will you always believe in me?
Is there nothing I can do to shake your faith?
There’s this fear that maybe we’re leading us on
But then there’s this deep joy that you keep wanting me to stay.
That you keep wanting me to stay…
You make me so happy, that you keep wanting me to stay.
Track Name: Deepest Need
Deepest Need

Moving through the stillness, witnessing time killing time
Dancing to the heartbeat of my life.
Wishing on a passing cloud, sun light warming my heart.
So where’s all this tightness keep coming from.

I know there is no end, but time and time again
There’s a fear of a shadow passing on the ground far below.

Dark blue is the color of these doubts I find hard to express
Of this aching I feel here in my soul.
My dream’s still unfolding, I know it always will
Way beyond this body of mine.

I know there is no end, but time and time again
I’m afraid of a shadow passing on the ground far below.

I want to know you, I want you to be my deepest need.
I want to let go, I’m tired of being afraid.
I’m ready to be free.

I want to know you, I want to feel you, I want you to be my deepest need.
I want to let go, I want to surrender. I’m tired of being afraid.
I’m ready to be free.
I want to know you, I want to feel you, I want you to be my deepest need.
I want to let go, I want to surrender. I’m tired of being afraid.
I’m ready to be free.
Track Name: The Message
The Message

The message is clear, the message is strong,
Now that Life is opening this new door.
I sit here with myself in the dark alone
And nothing is the same as ever before.

I go and look at my face in the mirror,
I can’t help but see the lies that I still live.
But thankfully they seem to be getting clearer.
I just wish I believed I had more to give.

(Ch)
Change is coming, don’t be afraid,
I just need to know that you are with me here.
Don’t be afraid of the changes that are coming.
There is nothing real here for you to fear.

I want so much to be fully ready
For all that this dream of mine still has in store.
I want to feel Love here strong and steady
And I want to give myself until there is nothing more.

(Ch)
Only through Love can we ever know Freedom
That’s what I’ve been running from for so long.
Only through Love can we know this Freedom
Then we can be sure, really sure that we belong…..

Change is coming don’t be afraid,
Love is with us all right here, right now.
Don’t be afraid of these changes that are coming
There is nothing real here for us to fear.
Nothing real can be threatened
Nothing unreal exists…
Nothing real can be threatened
Nothing unreal exists
Here’s the Peace I’m looking for…
Track Name: Game of Change
Game of Change

From under these covers, I can hear her sing
As I skirt the outside edge of her dream
I’m the one that she’s counting on
To make sure Love has her due, before I’m gone.

I hear her voice calling my name
Can I find the courage to play her fateful game?
Will I hold strong or will I be rearranged?
I can’t ever know for sure
Playing here in life’s game of change.

This life’s been changing right from the start.
Sometimes those changes break my heart apart.
I know Love needs to be here
To help me replace all I’ve let turn to fear.
Love is calling me – calling, reminding me,
Hoping I’ll remember I am free.

What better way to come to know
What will never change,
Than here in this game of life where so little remains the same.
It’s only Love now I finally see,
Only Love doesn’t change and she’s calling out to me.

I offer my heart, I lay it on this stone
In the light of Glory and her sweet, sweet song.
Will I hold strong or will I be rearranged?
You can’t ever know for sure
Playing here in Love’s game of change.

This life’s been changing right from the start.
Sometimes those changes break our heart apart.
I know Love needs to be here
To help us replace all we’ve let turn to fear.
Love is calling you and me – calling, reminding us,
Hoping we’ll remember we are free.

Love is calling…Love is calling…
Track Name: Ariana
Ariana

Whisper again to me,
Mysteries of another world,
Places you still see.

Oh carry me back Ariana,
Please carry me
To the things I’ve left behind
What others think and all their money
Somehow have made me blind.

I’m like a beggar at your feet,
You have the mysteries of the Universe.
Please share them with me.

Oh carry me back Ariana,
Please carry me
To the things I’ve left behind
What others think and all their money
Somehow have made me blind.

Your laughter rides on the breeze.
The world sings in harmony.
Your eyes they glisten in the sun.
I stand here like a fool
Lost in this Mystery.

Oh carry me back,
Please carry me
To the things I’ve left behind
What others think and all their money
Somehow have made me blind.
Oh carry me back,
Please carry me…
Track Name: Great Friends
Great Friends

The warming sun, the blowing wind.
I’m mostly here with all my memories of then.
I’m wishing you could be here with me
It feels like I’m waking up, I’m slowly waking up.

I saw you from a distance on that warm summer night.
I knew before you turned away that we just might
Wind up as lovers and you know it came to be
We’re such great friends, yeh, you and me.

How did we know when we kept changing the lead?
I let you show the way then you let me.
I’m glad these moments keep playing out as they do.
So glad you’re here with me
Even when your body is so far away.

I’m singing on the breeze as it blows into the shore
I walk this lonesome beach, I need nothing more
Except maybe you could be here with me
It feels like I’m waking up, I’m slowly waking up.

Yeh, my eyes they are opening.
I’ve been asleep so long, but now my eyes they’re finally opening
To the Love that surrounds me – Thank you.

Still I want to know the truth behind our fiction.
I want to feel your heart here beating in rhythm
Lover we both know that we were meant to be
Such great friends, you and me.

How did we know when we kept changing the lead?
I let you show the way then you let me.
I’m glad these moments keep playing out as they do.
So glad you’re here with me
Even when your body is so far away.

We’re such great friends you and me
We’re such great friends.
I know we will always be
Such great friends
Track Name: Another Day
Another Day

Another day, another year
Time’s moving more swiftly than before
Moving us always closer to piece
Where time will be no more

No past to test our memories
No future to tease our dreams
Just this true deep knowing we belong
Our Loving Essence redeemed.

And here together we sit
On just another day, just another year
We close our eyes and hold the other’s hand
We pray for Peace, release from fear.
In this moment of another day, another year


Time’s moving even more swiftly now
Raging onward toward that eternal sea
Within us this deep longing to merge
And knowing it soon will be.

And here together we sit
On just another day, just another year
We close our eyes and hold the other’s hand
We pray for Peace, release from fear.
In this moment of another day, another year


And here together we sit
On just another day, just another year
We close our eyes and hold the other’s hand
We pray for Peace, release from fear.
In this moment of another day, another year
Another day, another year
Another day, another year
Track Name: I Will If You Will
I Will if You Will

I will if you will
Make a plan to be
Right here in this moment together eternally
To and fro and up and down
Nothing ever seems to stay the same
Except baby, maybe you and me
From that moment that our Love came.

Could it ever be different what I feel?
No I can’t imagine anything feeling more real.
Could it ever be different what I feel?
Could it ever be different what I feel?

I offer you next to nothing
Except the all of me
I promise next to nothing
Except I’ll be here if you want me to be
The nights will flow gently
On into the days
The years will pass by and I will be right here always.

Could it ever be different what you feel?
Can you imagine anything feeling more real?
Could it ever be different what you feel?
Could it ever be different what you feel?


You know that some say
This life’s not what it seems
And someday we’ll come to realize
That it’s been nothing more than just a dream
If this is true there’s just one wish
You know that I want to make
It’s that you’ll be right here beside me
On that day when I awake.

Could it ever be different what we feel?
Can we imagine anything feeling more real?
Could it ever be different what we feel?
Could it ever be different what we feel?

I will if you will
Make a plan to be
Right here in this moment together you and me
I will if you will
Make a plan to be
Right here together baby you and me
I will if you will
I will if you will
I will if you will
Track Name: What Love Is
What Love Is

This is all we’ll ever need
This sweet movement I feel passing through me
The energy of our Love
It’s yearning to be free
We just got to let it be

It’s not important where we’ve been
It’s not important where we’re heading then
Or all those things we once thought were sin
It’s just this moment
And the Love we’re in.

So this is what Love is
It’s all we’ll ever need to know
As we move through this dance of form
Feeling the breeze on our face softly blow
Feeling completely this moment’s bliss
Oh…Oh, this is what Love is.

No we don’t have any time to waste
But that’s no reason to be in haste
All the challenges we have faced
Bring us to this moment
Face to face with Grace

Life will smile on us if we play our part
Life can’t help but smile on us
When we open up our hearts.

Now the sun is shining through
Reminding us right on cue
It’s just a dream no matter what we do
And just this moment
Is always, only true

So this is what Love is
It’s all we’ll ever need to know
As we move through this dance of form
Feeling the breeze on our face softly blow
Feeling completely this moment’s bliss
Oh…Oh, this is what Love is.
This is what Love is
This is what Love is
This is what Love is
Track Name: Forevermore
Forevermore

Goodbye is such sweet sadness
You gave me so much, you gave me so much,
We lived as though there’d always be tomorrow
Always trusting in each other’s touch

And now we watch the curtains closing
And we say our farewells
The stars were always so beautiful
But tonight they weave such a spell

And you sang your songs so sweetly
Leading me to believe there’d always be more
But now I sit here alone longingly, for what will be
Nevermore

Can’t let the sweetness be lost in this sorrow
There was Love and laughter always around
You filled my life with so much joy
You were always there for me I found

Ch

1st verse

And we sang our songs so sweetly
Leading us to believe there’d always be more
But now our time has passed
But our Love will last
Forevermore
Track Name: Closing - Breathe

Lead you home
