Away From The World Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Broken Things

Sometimes the road is crystal
And sometimes I feel like I'm losing my mind
Tell me what it is what you think you're missing
And I will see what I can find

You want to be so sure of
Every step you take
You cant always know what's coming
You cant always trust the twist of fate

Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you
Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you

Stars shine down from the black
And we're picking though this broken glass
Well how could we know that our lives
Would be so full of beautifully broken things

Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you
Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you

War is the most vulgar madness
And winters can be so cruel
You can't always change the way things are
Like I can't change the way I think of you

Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you
Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you
Oh my, love my, love my love
Oh my love my heart is set on you, set on you

Belly Belly Nice

Think about what you want
Think about what you got
And all the things that'll heal or hurt you
But when that big bomb is full of peaches
It don't matter what the preacher preaches
The days are warm and the well is full of virtue

Jack and jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
Because he was messing with the preachers daughter

Open up your wings
Make a dead man sing
Such a good good thing
Just can't be wrong no no no

You can't get too much love
Don't you feel it in your belly go get you some
You can't get too much love
The time is right for loving so come on come on

Can you feel it in your belly come on

Mamma's in the kitchen
Daddy's in the field
And baby girl is going to town
Because she likes the way it make her feel
Swimming in the river
Rolling in the mud
When the juice is dripping off your chin
One peach is not enough

You can't get too much love
So if you feel it in your belly come on come on
You can't get too much love
The time is right for loving come and get you some
You cant get too much love
Oh give it up, give it up, give it up

Oh the light that shines upon
The gift that everyone has for the taking
And happiness so pure as this
Is surely worth the making

Jack and jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
Because he was messing with the preachers daughter

Love love love love love love love
Love love love love love love love

You can't get too much love
So if you feel it in your belly come and get you some
You can't get too much love
The time is right for loving say come on come on
You cant get too much love
Gonna eat you're belly jelly till the kingdom comes
You cant get too much love
So give it up, give it up, give it up, give it up

Mercy

Don't give up
I know you can see
All the world and the mess that were making
Can't give up
And hope God will intercede
Come on back
Imagine that we could get it together
Stand up for what we need to be
Cause crying won't save or feed a hungry child
Can't lay down and wait for a miracle to change things
So lift up your eyes
Lift up your heart

Singing mercy will we overcome this
Oh one by one could we turn it around
Maybe carry on just a little bit longer
And I try to give you what you need

Me and you and you and you
Just want to be free yeah
But you see all the world is just as we've made it
And until we got a new world
I Got to say that love is not a whisper or a weakness

No love is strong
So we got to get together yeah
Gotta get gotta get gotta get
Til there is no reason
To fight

Mercy will we overcome this
Yeah one by one could we turn it around
Maybe carry on just a little bit longer
And I try to give you what you need

Yeah
Ah
Oh
Yeah

Mercy will we overcome this
Oh we come to far to turn it around
Oh and asked too much to be a little bit stronger
Cause I want to give you what you need

Mercy what will become of us
Oh one by one could we turn it around
Maybe carry on just a little bit longer
And I try to give you what you need

Gaucho

With fire to keep us warm
and tools we made from rocks and bones
A roof over your head
and walls to keep you safe in bed
There must be more than this
So God was born
and we in his image of fear and love
looked down upon from up above

We gotta do much more than believe
if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe
if we wanna see the world change

We crossed the oceans wide
built cities to the sky oh Lord
Looked up and we were flying
but will we not survive ourselves

We gotta do much more than believe
if we wanna see the world change
We gotta do much more than believe
if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe
go on try it, go on try it
We gotta do much more than believe
if we wanna see the world change

What will I say to my baby
Let me show you a movie
we landed a man on the moon
Now you could never believe it
ya we could do anything
We flew to the stars and back
down to the ground hard

Please wake up
Please wake up
Please wake up

[Children singing]
We gotta do much more than believe
if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe
if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe
if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe
if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe
if we really wanna change things

[Children and Dave singing]
We gotta do much more than believe
go on try it, go on try it
We gotta do much more than believe
if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe
go on try it, go on try it
We gotta do much more than believe
if we wanna see the world change

Oh my little baby
let me show you this movie
You know we landed a man on the moon
I know it's hard to imagine
but we could do anything
under the stars.

Sweet

Try to swim, keep your head up
Kick your legs never give up, boy
If I could I'd turn it around
Let me out I wanna get out now
You know the feeling when you're in too deep
And then you make it out the taste so sweet
Sweet
Sweet

I'm too high I wanna come down
And I'm too old to want to be younger now
But if I could I'd turn it around
Let me out I want to get out now

You know the feeling when you're in too deep
And then you make it out the taste so sweet
Sweet
Sweet

Cover me, cover me, cover me
Till I'm gone
Cover me, cover me, cover me
Till I'm gone
Cover me, cover me, cover me
Till I'm gone
Gone

And if I could I'd turn it around yeah
You know the feeling when you're in too deep
And then you make it out it tastes so sweet

The Riff

Funny how time slips away
looking at the cracks creeping across my face
I remember the little kid living in here
he'll be living here probably until I'm dead.

Please don't leave me, baby
please don't leave me yet.

Sitting in a box away from the world out there
a world piled high with boxes just like this
but please don't ever leave me alone in here
take me out, shake off the dust, shake off the fear.

Please don't leave me, baby
please don't leave me yet.

If you stay with me
that don't mean we gotta stay the same
if you stay with me
well baby, you and me we'll change the game

Well I don't know the man that's livin' in my head
'til you reach down and bring the light back in
no, I don't know the man that's living in my head
if I don't know the woman sleeping in my bed.

Remember how we used to kiss, baby
kiss like it was everything?
Remember how we used to love, baby
love like it was everything?

You stay with me
that don't mean we have to stay the same
if you stay with me
well baby, you and me we'll change the game
you stay with me
I'll follow you and we can start again, baby.

I only got a minute or two to spare
and I gotta whole damn life to fit in there
so why waste time staring at the T.V. set?
like I got dreams to kill and people to forget.

Remember how we used to dance, baby
just like it was everything?

You stay with me
and that don't mean we have to stay the same
you stay with me
baby, you and me can make the change
you stay with me
but that don't mean I wanna stay the same.

You stay with me
well baby, you and me we'll change the game.

Belly Full

Oh my love
If I had my way then all your dreams
Would come true
Oh my love
All your dreams and all the world
Just for you
Oh my love
If I had my way
This for you

Spread yourself across my lips
And I spoon you in
The sweetest thing in all the world
Oh I want more
There is no place I'd rather be than here with you
Under the sun, the pouring rain, all the sky for you

Oh my love
If I had my way
This for you
Oh my love
Make your belly full
And all your dreams to come true

If Only

Oh yeah
Some days it's so easy
Sometimes I forget her
Much I want you back again
Back again

Well maybe it's a game
You win some and you lose some
But when you've found a good one
Don't you let her get away
Don't let her go

Oh yeah
If only I could have you
Just the way I want you
Oh, to have you back again
Back again baby

Oh, I'm just a fool baby
Playing Mr. Cool baby
Rolling round like I got nothing much to lose
But I know you and you know me
And I know you can see
So help me find my way back to you
Back to you

Walking past your window
You used to smile and throw
Your sweet kisses back to me
Back to me

Oh yeah
Remember when I asked you
If you'd be my one true
it seems like yesterday
Just like yesterday

Oh yeah, and I'm just a fool baby
Playing Mr. Cool baby
Rolling round like I got nothing much to lose
But I know you and you know me
And I know you can see
So help me get my way back to you
Back to you

I want you so take me back please
Take me back my baby

If only I could have you
Just the way I want you
Yeah

I'm just a fool baby
Playing Mr. Cool baby
Rolling round like I got nothing much to lose babe
But I know you and you know me
And I know you can see
So help me get my way back to you

I want you so take me back please
Take me back my baby

If only I could have you
Just the way I want to
Just the way I was

Rooftop

Standing on the rooftop
There's all these people watching
Hard to find the words
When you got so far to fall
Just trying to keep a secret
And never tell a soul no no
Take another drink so
I can loose control

I
I want you to
tell me that you want me, just want me too
I
I want you to
Tell me that you want me, just want me

If I was a winner
I'd cut the cards and deal them
Buy a great big house where
We could disappear
But you find yourself a sweet spot
And people want to get some
You're just anther dead man
Trying to fool the world

I
I want you to
tell me that you want me, want me too
I
I want you to
Tell me that you want me, want me too

I gave you the best of me
And you said goodbye
Should have taken the rest of me
See the morning come up come up
If you're going out tonight
Maybe I'll catch you right
Maybe we'll loose our minds tonight
And fall until we fly

I
I want you
tell me that you want me,want me too
I
I want you to just
Tell me that you want me, want me too

I
I want you
tell me that you want me,want me too
I
I want you to just
Tell me that you want me, want me

Snow Outside

You are like a secret garden
as I shuffle through this broken town
think of you and you are all around me
like the sky when the sun's going down
I want to tell the whole wide world
and see how love can light your soul
but you are like my secret garden
and I want to be with you alone

Oh, Hold tight
cuz the road can be a crazy ride
And I know we're going to be alright
Cuz you are here with me
Oh, woman is so right
And even if the oceans divide us
I will be here right by your side
For the rest of our days
Here for the rest of our days

If you are tired I'll bear your burden
If you are dreaming I will not disturb you
Whatever your heart desires love love
I'll clear the way for you
Come winter I will build you a fire
From the bones of who I used to be
Before you came and washed the weary away
Before you came here for me
So right every day and every night
By the fire with the snow outside
And the two of us
Oh child hold tight
If it gets to be a crazy ride
I'll be here right by your side
For the rest of our days
Oh, for the rest of our days

So right
Holding on to this crazy ride
Hold on we'll be alright
Me and you and you and me
Here you come you bring me real love
From the ground beneath to the stars above
I was growing down now I'm growing up
With you in my blood
Yeah this is real love
Shining down like the stars above
Arms out and I am growing up
With you in my blood
Oh you know that its alright
Feels bigger than the whole world wide
You know come the morning light
Oh I know that I am yours
That I am yours
That I am yours

Drunken Soldier

Keep your head up
Try and listen to your heart
Be kind always, no matter
We all grow up
and someday well say goodbye
So shine your light while got one

Make the most of what you've got
Don't waste time being trying to be something you're not
Fill up your head and fill up you heart and take your shot
Don't waste time trying to be something you're not

Once round just once so take your shot
Don't waste time trying to be something you're not
Fill up your head and fill up you heart cuz that all we got
Don't waste time trying to be something you're not

Through you window
That's one way to see the world
Step outside and look back into
Look and listen
And you decide what to believe
Shine your light while you got one

And make the most of what you got
Don't waste time trying to be something you're not
Fill up your head and fill up your heart and take your shot
Don't waste time trying to be someone you're not

That's not a star that's a satellite
Step it out
Step it out

That's not a star that's a satellite

That's not a star that's a satellite

That's not a star that's a satellite
