Long Highway

It’s late
I’m tired
I don’t want to go home tonight
so I’ll stay for a while
I lay my head down on the table
you come and sit next to me
are you the one to save me
from the place I don’t belong

Who do you love when sun’s coming up
and the moon is still hanging around

one time
or another
we all crash
some people always fall
on their feet
there’s the law of attraction
when the whole of a fraction becomes everything
I need
are you the one to save me
from this place I don’t belong

Who do you love when sun’s coming up
and the moon is still hanging around

 

When It Rains

Slow motion
When I feel like the stars are mine
Come slowly
We have nothing else but time
Sunday morning high
When it rains
Every drop never taste the same
And you can change everything but your name

Slow motion
I believe that you already know
There’s no hurry
If you say that you can’t let go
Sunday morning high
When it rains
Every drop never taste the same
And you can change everything but your name

Slow motion
In the way that you simply breathe
An old potion
Like the wind running through the trees
Sunday morning high
When it rains
Every drop never taste the same
And you change everything but your name

Bell Town

Lay you head on my shoulder
rest your little gun in its holster
and breathe with me

The rules fell when someone abused them
the bells ring silent until someone unmutes them
let them ring for peace

Eternity
will outlive you and me
Entirely
just wait and see
Some things can’t wait till we’re older
brother oh brother I need to hold you

we are square pegs in round holes
the misfits
the crazy the lost souls
let us ring for peace

Eternity
will outlive you and me
Entirely
just wait and see

How can it be they can turn your feelings when the feelings are yours
how can it be they can hurt your believes when you seemed so sure

Eternity
will outlive you and me
Entirely
just wait and see

Above The Storms

Just like the river flows
somethings never go
away
the heights between our lows
we cross the seas on stepping stones this way

Above the storms
beyond all your thorns
in drops of frozen morning dew
is where I keep my memories of you

You pulled me off the breakers
I’ve never turned to see the ship that sank
the edge of love is sharp
I know you have fear left in your lionheart

Above the storms
beyond all your thorns
in drops of frozen morning dew
is where I keep my memories of you

 

Perfect Time For Leaving

Got an early start this morning
got the wheel in my hands
the chorus is just dawning
ain’t nobody understand
it’s the perfect time for leaving
too early still to feel
before the sun has woken
before the world is real

I gotta go

I knew this day was coming
I could feel it in my bones
so I gather all my longing
that kept me here alone
now I’ve seen the sunrise
I remember something warm
if you travel long enough
you come back where you were born

I gotta go

Waterfall

Show me your wishing well
I want to see where your dreams dwell
the conversation
has echoed out
but I’m still talking
my words do nothing its the taste they leave behind
I dreamed I could go travel back in time
but I can’t do it
like running up a waterfall
it can’t be done

They say time fades the past
I am a dreamer
surely I can make it last
I swim the water that carried away your name
cos every flooding tide
returns a little bit of you again
my words do nothing it’s the taste they leave behind
I dreamed I could go traveling back in time
but I can’t do it
like running up a waterfall
it can’t be done

Just Do It Again

If it dosen’t fare well
do it tomorrow
If it dosen’t fare well
do it again

Seen some years traveled long watched the sky and sea
walked away a 100 times lived in lock and key

start again
just start again

Some look but never see some climb the fallen tree
An earthly wound a small defeat some cuts they never bleed

start again
just start again

If it dosen’t fare well
do it tomorrow
if it dosen’t fare well
do it again

A song of joy into the dark of love and struggle rain and ark
a fathers love is never old always time to have a hold

just start again
you got to give yourself a little bit of god damn mercy

If it dosen’t fare well
do it tomorrow
if it dosen’t fare well
do it again

 

All Is Love

All is love
down below and up above
and in between are all our good intentions

All is love
all the future all the past
it is as clear as overcast
that all is love

There is a hope and a dream
but we don’t always believe
that a land lies
with clear skies
for you and me

All is love
time to follow time to end
see how close we got to coming home my friend
all is love

There is a hope and a dream
but we don’t always believe
that a land lies
with clear skies
for you and me

Silver Sun

feel of snow in the wind
a little smile on quiet wings
true blue moon in the sky
what if this passed me by

not in the silver sun

reaching back in my mind
you were there hiding time
yes or no the chance is small
swing the sword or let it fall

not in the silver sun

and I built a home where water flows
right beneath where I hold you close
rise and fall everyday
love and gold float away

not in the silver sun

Sorrow Has a Time

She walks across the dirt to ride
all the way to Hampton
she left the plans but kept her pride
everything had changed last night

She always thought the dots would join
if she did the right thing
but every word is morse code now
and her life is wearing thin

Sorrow always has a time
theres no lock and key
there’s no crime
any side you chose of the line
sorrow has a time

Little town was dark and sweet
windows were all watching
the memories were full of heat
so long since it rose inside

She came to where the river was
to drown her fears and worries
let the roses drift away
and waited for a little sunrise

Sorrow always has a time
theres no lock and key
there’s no crime
any side you chose of the line
sorrow has a time

Night Train

At the edge of my seat
the mist is just clearing
and the moon is riding high
there is a time in the night
when the world is retreating
and the wind is just a sigh

I don’t even know your name

I wait for a sign
like the shouting of angels
when a raven folds its wings
so I sing in the dark
the music of the soul
until the world begins

I don’t even know your name
I don’t even know your name

for a moment in time
somewhere there you are mine

At the edge of my seat
the mist is just clearing
and the moon is riding high

I don’t even know your name
I don’t even know your name
