Morning

Woke up this morning, found a love light in the storm
Looked up this morning, saw the roses full of thorns
Guns are falling, they don't have nowhere to go
Oceans of diamonds always shine, smooth out below

Can we start it all over again this morning?
I lost all my defenses this morning
Won't you show me the way it used to be?

I've gone all around 'til there's nothing left to say
Wrote it all down into something that couldn't be said
I tore it all down and buried me underneath the wave

Can we start it all over again this morning?
I let down my defenses this morning
It was just you and me this morning
I fought all my guesses this morning
Won't you show me the way it could've been?

Heart Is A Drum

Free as a driving wheel
Circling around your iron will
See only what you feel
Keeps you turning when you're standing still
You tried to run from trouble when it comes
You followed the drum keeping time with everyone

High as the light of day
You're falling down across your lost highway
Pain - does it hurt this way?
To come so far to find they've closed the gates?
You've lost your tongue when you fall from the pendulum
Your heart is a drum keeping time with everyone

Everyone, if they drown from the undertow
Need to find someone to show me how to play it slow
And just let it go

Your eyes get stung by the rays of the sinking sun
You follow the drum keeping time with everyone
Going beat beat beat, it's beating me down
Beat beat beat beat, it's beating me down
Day after day, it's turning around
'Til all my days are drowning out

Say Goodbye

See the sleet that rests upon
The quiet street we're standing on
Is it time to go away
And try again some other day?
'Cause these are words we use to say goodbye
These are the words you use to say goodbye

Bones crack, curtains drawn
On my back and she is gone
Somewhere else I do not know
Time will tell and I will go
These are the words we use to say goodbye
These are the words we use to say goodbye

I will wait and take a turn
Sort it out, let it burn
Empty out empty drawer
In my pockets, there's nothing more
These are the words you use to say goodbye
These are the words we use to say goodbye

Blue Moon

I'm so tired of being alone
These penitent walls are all I've known
Songbird calling across the water
Inside my silent asylum

Oh don't leave me on my own
Left me standing all alone
Cut me down to size so I can fit inside
Lies that will divide us both in time

See the turncoat on his knees
A vagabond that no one sees
When a moon is throwing shadows
You can't save the ones you've caught in battle

Oh don't leave me on my own
Left me standing all alone
Cut me down to size so I can fit inside
Lies you try to hide behind your eyes

Don't leave me on my own
Don't leave me on my own
So cut me down to size so I can fit inside
Lies that will divide us both in time

Unforgiven

Drive to the night
Far as it goes
Away from the daylight
Into the afterglow

Somewhere unforgiven
Time will wait for you

Down on the street
Just let the engine run
'Til there's nothing left
Except the damage done

Somewhere unforgiven
I will wait for you

Somewhere unforgiven
Time will wait for you

Somewhere unforgiven
I will wait for you

Wave

I move away from this place
In the form of a disturbance
And enter into the world
Like some tiny distortion

If I surrender
And I don't fight this wave
No I won't go under
I'll only get carried away

Wave
Wave
Wave

Isolation
Isolation
Isolation
Isolation

Don't Let It Go

You better save yourself
From something you can't see
Follow it where it goes
Follow it back to me
I'll keep it here

Don't let it go
Don't let it go
Don't let it go
Don't let it go away
You don't have to let it go away

These are some faults we found
Hollowed out from the years
Don't let them wear you out
Don't let them turn your mind inside out

Don't let it go
Don't let it go away
Don't let it go
Don't let it go away
You don't have to let it go away

In the crossfire there's a story
And how it ends, I do not know

Don't let it go
Don't let it go away
Don't let it go
Don't let it go away

Don't you see how far it's gone away?
Don't you see how far it's gone away?
Don't you see how far it's gone away?
Don't you see how far it's gone away?
You don't have to let it go away

Blackbird Chain

Give me traces of your lifeblood flowing in a loving cup
And tell me I'm dream dream dream dreaming and I'll never wake up
A keepsake in a dresser drawer from who-knows-where
A symbol of your exegesis and a full-length mirror

I'll never never never never never never refuse you
I'll never never never never never never refuse you
My blackbird chain, my blackbird chain
My blackbird chain, my blackbird chain

An SOS from an outpost there on a common air
I could read you a brief account of a last frontier
We could come to understand what's wrong as right as rain
At rock bottom of a hollowed ground, we stake your claim

I'll never never never never never never refuse you
I'll never never never never never never refuse you
A blackbird chain, blackbird chain
A blackbird chain, a blackbird chain

I'll never never never never never never refuse you
I'll never never never never never never refuse you
My blackbird chain, a blackbird chain
A blackbird chain, a blackbird chain

Turn Away

Turn turn away
From the sound of your own voice
Calling no one, just a silence
Run to see you at the edge
Fall off the avalanche
Turn away

Hold hold the light
That fixes you in time
Keeps you under
Takes you over the wall
That love divides between waking and slumber
Turn away

Turn turn away
From the weight of your own past
It's magic for the devil
And betray the lack of change
Once you have spoken
Turn away

Country Down

Oh country down
Where I found my proving ground
All along the floodline
Wheels are turning around
The hills roll out like centuries
Pass by without a sound
Just a mile outside of town

Downriverbound
Where the [?] sky fell down
A plot against your will
Is furrowed into your brow
Against your better judgment
It's all behind you now
Just a mile outside of town

What's the use of being found?
You can lose yourself [?] underground
In the weeds hiding down river right next door
There's no frame around your picture
Just a view through my back door

Time evermore
You just found what you're looking for
A tiger rose growing through your prison door
Reaching for sunlight, can't see it anymore
Just a mile from my back door

You could wake up on a lifeboat 'neath the sun
On a ladder up to the sky
You're standing on the lowest rung
Holding a lifeline, using my best defense
Running in the undertow I couldn't fight against

Oh lay me down
Where we found my proving ground
All along the floodline
Waves are turning around
The hills roll out like centuries
Pass by without a sound
Just a mile outside of town

Waking Light

Waking light, it grew from the shadow
Brace yourself to the morning low
Night is gone, long way turning
You've waited long enough to know

When the memory leaves you
Somewhere you can't make it home
When the morning comes to meet you
Lay me down in waking light

No one sees you here, roots are all covered
There's such a life to go and how much can you show?
Day is gone on a landslide of rhythm
It's in your lamplight burning low

When the memory leaves you
Somewhere you can't make it home
When the morning comes to meet you
Rest your eyes in waking light

When the memory leaves you
Somewhere you can't make it home
When the morning comes to meet you
Open your eyes with waking light
