    Better

    I’ve opened the door, Let you inside
    Showed you the feelings I wanted to hide
    Taken a chance, Put it all on the line
    Hoping eventually you would be mine
    My soul I’ve sold
    But it leaves you cold

    You say that this could be better
    Not sure this is where you should be
    You’re holding out for something that’s better
    Someone who’s better than me

     

    We go to the bar, You’ve got your eye
    Glued to the door to see who comes inside
    Make our way home, Ask you to stay
    You say tomorrow is an early day
    How can love be
    What’s hurting me

    You say that this could be better
    Not sure this is where you should be
    You’re holding out for something that’s better
    Someone who’s better than me

    This better be
    Better for me

    I think that this could be better
    Not sure this is where I should be
    I think I’ll hold out for something that’s better
    Someone who’s better for me

    You say that this could be better
    Not sure this is where you should be
    You’re holding out for something that’s better
    Someone who’s better than me   

    Someone who’s better for me

    Someone who’s better for me

    Good for You

    You could never just enjoy it

    You had to make it be

    Something you could see

    And you always would avoid it

    Making what you feel

    Into something real

     

    If you want to throw it all away

    Good for you

    If you’re gonna pack your bags today

    Good for you

    If you’ve got nothing left to say

    Good for you

    But you were good for me and I was

    Good for you too

     

    So you made your own conclusion

    You wrote it on the wall

    And readied for the fall

    Afraid to ask for absolution

    Buried in your pride

    And empty on the inside

     

    If you want to throw it all away

    Good for you

    If you’re gonna pack your bags today

    Good for you

    If you’ve got nothing left to say

    Good for you

    But you were good for me and I was

    Good for you too

     

    Something better

    You think will come along

    And I won’t ever

    See you again

    You’ll forget it

    When you’re walking out

    But you’ll regret it

    Of that I have no doubt

       

    If you want to throw it all away

    Good for you

    If you’re gonna pack your bags today

    Good for you

    If you’ve got nothing left to say

    Good for you

    But you were good for me and I was

    Good for you too

    Bobby Hollywood

    At the Union Square Greenmarket                              

    Where the farmers sell their wares                               

    From some fine organic sausage                                   

    To those purple heirloom pears                                     

    There a man with a dark story                                      

    A long time citizen of this town                                       

    Told me that’s the place it happened                      

    They shot Bobby Hollywood down                                 

     

    I was buying Brooklyn pickles

    Made by a hipster out in Queens

    Surrounded by my neighbors

    In their hundred dollar jeans

    But the man that caught my eye

    Was the one who didn’t care

    About the cooking demonstration

    Cause Bobby Hollywood died right there

     

    There was this whole big world                                    

    Before the world we see today                                     

    And another world before that as the decades slip away           

    And I may be buying produce by Gandhi’s weary stride        

    But where the tourists gawk and millions walk, a man lay down and died 

     

    They added up my purchase

    Of my burdock and my ramps

    And I put it my Trader Joes

    Organic cotton bag

    And I turned to hear the story

    Of a man no longer there

    Whose unfortunate demise it’s said

    Occurred in Union Square

     

    There was this whole big world                                     

    Before the world we see today                                 

    And another world before that as the decades slip away          

    And I may be buying produce by Gandhi’s weary stride          

    But where the tourists gawk and millions walk, a man lay down and died 

     

    But the teller of the story

    Seemed to vanish in the crowd

    Lost in trucker hats and strollers

    Of the financially endowed

    Like a ghost from somewhere far beyond

    These perfect packaged lives

    To remind us of another time

    Just a trace of which survives

     

    There was this whole big world                                     

    Before the world we see today                                     

    And another world before that as the decades slip away           

    And I may be buying produce by Gandhi’s weary stride            

    But where the tourists gawk and millions walk, a man lay down and died

    Poetry

    I see you there with your head in the sand

    Pen scratching paper, heart in your hand

    Looking for words to make her understand

    All that you’re feeling inside

     

    Poor boy I’m sorry to say

    All of your poetry won’t make her stay

    She doesn’t hear and she’ll never see

    Unmoved by your poetry

     

    I know you mean well, I know you’re sincere

    I know you’ll say what you want her to hear

    Beautiful words to keep her right here

    So why is she walking away

     

    Poor boy I’m sorry to say

    All of your poetry won’t make her stay

    She doesn’t hear and she’ll never see

    Unmoved by your poetry

     

    Love doesn’t come with steps you can learn

    Hearts never follow the rules

    Sometimes it’s just in the way that the sun shines

    Turning us all into fools

     

    Poor boy I’m sorry to say

    All of your poetry won’t make her stay

    Those similes and that metaphor

    Won’t make her walk through that door

    She doesn’t hear and she’ll never see

    Unmoved by your poetry

    Unmoved by your poetry

    Unmoved by your poetry

    Good Song

    There was nothing like

    Sitting home at night

    Waiting for the call that never came

    There’s something to be said

    For getting into bed

    Nothing in your mind but his name

     

    And when I’m feeling pretty low

    That’s when I pick up my guitar and go

    And write a song that spells it out

    All the words that I can’t scream and shout

     

    But now I got you here

    It’s never been so clear

    Everything has gone and turned out right

    I’m happy every day

    You washed the clouds away

    And I don’t cry into my pillow at night

     

    But I’ve got nothing left to say

    My creativity has gone away

    Without a man to make me cry

    I can kiss those melodies goodbye

     

    And I’m singing corny songs

    And I’m writing corny lines

    It’s because I haven’t been this happy in

    A long long time

    And I’ll never write another good song again

     

    Can’t you help me out

    Make it all about

    Trying to do the things that make me cry

    Give me some attitude

    Be in a nasty mood

    Let me catch you in a flat-out lie

     

    I’ve never felt so uninspired

    My writing skills have gotten weak and tired

    No more happiness for me

    If I want lyrics and a good melody

     

    And I’m singing corny songs

    And I’m writing corny lines

    It’s because I haven’t been this happy in

    A long long time

    And I’ll never write another good song again

     

    As far as old boyfriends I haven’t any doubt

    They always gave me something good to write about

    And though all that misery has stopped

    I wrote songs that totally rocked

     

    And I’m singing corny songs

    And I’m writing corny lines

    It’s because I haven’t been this happy in

    A long long time

    And I’ll never write another good song again

    It's Alright

    Maybe I’ll have you here forever

    Or maybe be alone

    Maybe I’ll fail with each endeavor

    Or find the great unknown

    Maybe I’ll overcome this heart

    That never lets me be

    Pulling the two of us apart

    I hear you running

     

    It’s alright, I’m alright

    Hoping I can find the answers

    I’m trying, I’m lying

    Right beside the one to set me free

     

    Isn’t it funny how the clocks run

    You never know the time

    What you can measure out and then some

    Still standing in a line

    I couldn’t see inside the glass

    But no one ever could

    Too many questions to be asked

    That keep you guessing

     

    It’s alright, I’m alright

    Hoping I can find the answers

    I’m trying, I’m lying

    Right beside the one to set me free

     

    I never lock the doors behind

    In case I have to run

    Finding the reasons out in time

    I let them take me

     

    It’s alright, I’m alright

    Hoping I can find the answers

    I’m trying, I’m lying

    Right beside the one to set me free

    Can't Make Me Stop Loving You

    We’re always getting ready for the end

    But we don’t know how to start

    And though you try to throw away the key

    I’m locked inside your heart

     

    I’m not saying that I’m easy to love

    And you ain’t no picnic neither

    But when you put your arms around me

    You can’t deny the fever

     

    You can walk out the door, you can throw this away

    You can pack up your bags at the end of the day

    You can jump in your car drive off into the blue

    But you can’t make me stop loving you

     

    Take a walk take a drive take a drink

    Anything to clear your head

    You can follow all those demons in your mind

    Or you can follow me instead

     

    You can walk out the door, you can throw this away

    You can pack up your bags at the end of the day

    You can jump in your car drive off into the blue

    But you can’t make me stop loving you

     

    Turn the rudder round steady as she goes

    Skimming, swiftly on the salty sea

    There’s a siren who is calling you home

    Her sweet voice belongs to me

     

    You can walk out the door, you can throw this away

    You can pack up your bags at the end of the day

    You can jump in your car drive off into the blue    

    But you can’t make me stop

     

    You can walk out the door, you can throw this away

    You can pack up your bags at the end of the day

    You can jump in your car drive off into the blue

    But you can’t make me stop loving you

    Daffodils

    It’s been a long season

    Of ice and of snow

    The frozen glow as the sun slips away

    I pull the blankets up

    And cover my head

    I’ll just stay in bed another day

     

    When the winter wind is blowing again

    And the arctic air is keeping me in

    I have faith that spring is around the bend

    And the daffodils will appear again

    And the daffodils will appear in the new year

     

    I know that underneath

    They’re lying in place

    To show their face up to the sun

    Like all the music in 

    My tired heart

    Waiting to start when winter is done

     

    When the winter wind is blowing again

    And the arctic air is keeping me in

    I have faith that spring is around the bend

    And the daffodils will appear again

    And the daffodils will appear in the new year

     

    Falling rain will wash the snow away

    And clouds will fade from the sky

    And I will find the voice that hasn’t made a sound

    Since the maple trees dropped their leaves

    Upon the frozen ground

     

    When the winter wind is blowing again

    And the arctic air is keeping me in

    I have faith that spring is around the bend

    And the daffodils will appear again

    And the daffodils will appear in the new year

    What Would He Say

    What would he say if he knew

    That sometimes when the sky is blue

    I let my heart go soaring far

    To a distant star

     

    What would he say if he knew

    That sometimes when the moon is full

    I lie awake and stare at the sky

    And cry

     

    Is it so hard to be true

    Can I trust his heart

    Can I let him see the part

    Inside of me he never sees

     

    What would he say if he knew

    There’s a lonely little girl in my room

    And she longs for words to still her tears

    Through the lonely years

     

    Must I hold my breath

    Long enough to see what he really is to me

    And then what I am to him

     

    What would he say if he knew

    That all I want to say is I love you

    And the hope that we might live as one

    In the years to come

    This Life

    Each day I get my body

    Out of bed feeling like the

    Walking dead and get myself to work

    Hours crawl belly knotted

    In a ball soothe the pain with

    Alcohol feeling like a jerk

     

    But this life

    Will never come again

    So why do I pretend

    That that’s OK

    One chance

    Is all we’re gonna get

    So why do I forget

    And lose my way

     

    I know that I will never

    Love you the way that you

    Want me to though I will try my hardest to

    So you cry and I think up an

    Alibi just to perpetuate

    The lie and let the moment pass

     

    But this life

    Will never come again

    So why do I pretend

    That that’s OK

    One chance

    Is all we’re gonna get

    So why do I forget

    And lose my way

     

    I don’t know what the answer is

    But I know I have to try

    Find the light in the darkness

    Find the strength inside

     

    But this life

    Will never come again

    So why do I pretend

    That that’s OK

    One chance

    Is all we’re gonna get

    So why do I forget

    And lose my way

     

    But this life

    Will never come again

    So why do we pretend

    That that’s OK

    One chance

    Is all we’re gonna get

    So why do we forget

    And lose our way

    Find My Way Home

    So I sail on stormy weather

    So I ride in restless nights

    I drive down the highway

    Both hands on the wheel

    And know that I’m making perfect time

     

    So I sail on the sea with the stars as my guide

    And I know that it’s only a matter of time

    ‘Till my head will believe what my heart can’t deny

    And I’ll finally find my way home

    Yes I’ll finally find my way home

     

    I don’t suffer for solutions

    I don’t lie awake at night

    Why live for tomorrow

    Or dream of yesterday

    Today is the only chance in sight

     

    So I sail on the sea with the stars as my guide

    And I know that it’s only a matter of time

    ‘Till my head will believe what my heart can’t deny

    And I’ll finally find my way home

    Yes I’ll finally find my way home

     

    It’s so very ordinary to feel lost alone at sea

    Absolution from confusion is the only place you want to be

     

    So I sail on the sea with the stars as my guide

    And I know that it’s only a matter of time

    ‘Till my head will believe what my heart can’t deny

    And I’ll finally find my way home

    Yes I’ll finally find my way home

    Set To Fly

    I’ve been watching the clock on the wall

    I’ve been sitting around waiting for the fall

    I’ve been looking at days going by

    Taking memories out and leaving them to dry

    But I am stunned by the sudden appearance of you

    By the dream that could never come true

    By what I have turned into

     

    I’ve got my wings strapped on tight

    I’ve got my face towards the light

    I’ve got you in my sight

    And I’m set to fly

     

    I had nothing and nothing had me

    I was far from land adrift and lost at sea

    Time was slowly slipping away

    And I was perfectly fine to let it be that way

    But my breath caught the moment I looked in your eyes

    And the feeling of sudden surprise

    When I finally realized

     

    I’ve got my wings strapped on tight

    I’ve got my face towards the light

    I’ve got you in my sight

    And I’m set to fly

     

    Love’s been a long time coming

    And so many times before I lost my faith

    But I finally let the light in

    And at last I look ahead and see my way

     

    I’ve got my wings strapped on tight

    I’ve got my face towards the light

    I’ve got you in my sight

    And I’m set to fly

    Don't Come Around

    You don’t hold my hand

    And you don’t stroke my head

    But I found you this morning

    Entangled in my bed

     

    You don’t say you love me

    And you never will

    But I keep drinking you down

    Like some addictive pill

     

    Don’t come around

    I just need to keep my feet

    On solid ground

    You just need to keep your distance

    I don’t need your damn persistence

    Put your promises down

    And walk away

     

    I was in your arms

    Whispered in your ear

    But hardly more than moments

    Before you disappear

     

    I don’t know your heart

    And I can’t read your mind

    But tell me when you come here

    What do you expect to find

     

    Don’t come around

    I just need to keep my feet

    On solid ground

    You just need to keep your distance

    I don’t need your damn persistence

    Put your promises down

    And walk away

     

    Out of my hands

    I don’t believe

    Anything you tell me anymore

    I knew it would be

    Hard to achieve

    But I don’t want to take this anymore

     

    Don’t come around

    I just need to keep my feet

    On solid ground

    You just need to keep your distance

    I don’t need your damn persistence

    Put your promises down

    And walk away

    Fallen

    You know I’ve tried to be good all my life

    But sometime complications can arise

    And I never thought it’d come to this

    My world has turned around with just one kiss

     

    You know I think about it every night

    And I keep hoping I can make it right

    Still I’m standing at the water’s edge

    Still I take the first step off this ledge

     

    Fallen in love

    Fallen from grace

    Looking for the sunshine

    In the darkest place

    And I run

    And I crawl

    But I am Lucifer

    And I fall

     

    You know that nothing’s ever black and white

    Or do I justify to make it right

    I used to believe I knew it all

    But that was long before I took this fall

     

    Fallen in love

    Fallen from grace

    Looking for the sunshine

    In the darkest place

    And I run

    And I crawl

    But I am Lucifer

    And I fall

     

    And though I know

    This love affair will break me

    I think it’s gonna take me

    Somewhere I wanna go

    But I will try

    To break the ties that bind me

    And leave this all behind me

    And come up from below

     

    Fallen in love

    Fallen from grace

    Looking for the sunshine

    In the darkest place

    And I run

    And I crawl

    But I am Lucifer

    And I fall

    I Give

    We stare at each other ‘cross the board

    Your move

    Every time I think it’s your turn

    You’ve left the room

    What more can I do to make you play

    The game

    I’ve had my fill of solitaire

    It’s not the same

     

    I guess

    That’s all

    Alright

    I give

     

    I put my money down and drew

    My hand

    I waited to see if you would fold

    Or stand

    Somehow the hours seem to slip

    Away

    Why can’t you just put down your cards

    And play

     

    I guess

    That’s all

    Alright

    I give

     

    I give you love

    When you’re alone

    I give you strength

    When you’re weary to the bone

    I give you friendship

    When the world has turned its back

    I give and I give

    But you’re never giving back

     

    I guess

    That’s all

    Alright

    I give

    Living In A Bubble

    I been alone for so long

    And I was happy in my little room

    I didn’t need nobody

    No one to lift me from my private tomb

    But the light

    In your eyes

    Took me

    By surprise

     

    Living in a bubble

    Stayin’ out of trouble

    Then I did a double take on you

    Where the hell you come from

    Who’da thought I’d meet some

    Body who would make me feel the way you do

     

    I didn’t want no trouble

    And I was safer standing all alone

    I locked the door behind me

    I turned the lights off and unplugged the phone

    But you got

    Under my skin

    Next thing I knew

    I let you in

     

    Living in a bubble

    Stayin’ out of trouble

    Then I did a double take on you

    Where the hell you come from

    Who’da thought I’d meet some

    Body who would make me feel the way you do

     

    You opened up the windows

    You let the light in and I’m

    Seeing more completely

    Than I ever dreamed I see again, oh

     

    Living in a bubble

    Stayin’ out of trouble

    Then I did a double take on you

    Where the hell you come from

    Who’da thought I’d meet some

    Body who would make me feel the way you do

    The Last Goodbye

    That’s how it goes

    You never know the outcome till the end

    And nobody knows

    How you can turn a lover to a friend

    I could have loved you dearly

    But now I see it clearly

     

    This is the last goodbye

    I’m done with asking why

    Solitude pull up a chair

    We go it alone from here

     

    I took it in stride

    But I’m not gonna take it anymore

    Say my goodbyes

    And kindly lead your highness to the door

    I say thanks for playing

    But there’s no way I’m staying

     

    This is the last goodbye

    I’m done with asking why

    Solitude pull up a chair

    We go it alone from here

     

    Now we do it my way

    And you take the highway

     

    This is the last goodbye

    I’m done with asking why

    Solitude pull up a chair

    We go it alone from here

    Lose My Way

    What do they call it

    A calculated risk

    Couldn’t imagine

    The pleasure I might miss

     

    I know the danger when you jump

    And I know the pleasure when you fall

    And I know the pain when you hit squarely on the ground

     

    But I’m not gonna worry

    And I’m not gonna cry

    Though I know you’re leaving

    When you say goodbye

    ‘Cause you’re not gonna break me

    And you’re not gonna win

    And I’m not gonna lose my way again

    Lose my way again

     

    I was biting my nails

    While you were biding your time

    But in the end you laid it

    Squarely on the line

     

    You didn’t want to take the jump

    ‘Cause you didn’t want to have to fall

    ‘Cause you know the pain when you hit squarely on the ground

     

    But I’m not gonna worry

    And I’m not gonna cry

    Though I know you’re leaving

    When you say goodbye

    ‘Cause you’re not gonna break me

    And you’re not gonna win

    And I’m not gonna lose my way again

    Lose my way again

     

    Gather my strength

    Back to the wall

    Face to the wind

    Taking my belongings home

    With me again

     

    But I’m not gonna worry

    And I’m not gonna cry

    Though I know you’re leaving

    When you say goodbye

    ‘Cause you’re not gonna break me

    And you’re not gonna win

    And I’m not gonna lose my way again

    Lose my way again

    Ring Of Fire

    Love is a burning thing

    And it makes a fiery ring

    Bound by wild desire

    I fell into a ring of fire

     

     

    I fell into a burning ring of fire

    I went down, down, down and the flames went higher

    And it burns, burns, burns

    The ring of fire The ring of fire

     

     

    The taste of love is sweet

    When hearts like ours meet

    I fell for you like a child

    Oh, but the fire went wild

     

     

    I fell into a burning ring of fire

    I went down, down, down and the flames went higher

    And it burns, burns, burns

    The ring of fire The ring of fire

    Marine Layer

    It’s blocking out the sun

    The cold wind off the sea

    And I’m gasping for air

    But you won’t talk to me

    I’m struggling for words

    To shout above this din

    But the marine layer, the marine layer

    Is rolling in, rolling in

     

    I step into the tide

    And hear the ocean roar

    I turn and look behind

    But you’re still on the shore

    I try to catch your eye

    To see me once again

    But the marine layer, the marine layer

    Is rolling in, rolling in

     

    I know that a million years have come and gone

    And time polishes rocks and stones we’re stepping on

    But I’m feeling the pull of the moon upon my heart

    And I don’t have a way to tell you, tell you

    I can’t start

     

    I sink into the sand

    And hold my feelings in

    But if I were to speak

    Where would I begin

    And though the sun is bright

    The light begins to dim

    As the marine layer, the marine layer

    Comes rolling in, rolling in

    Take The Long Road

    Let’s pack up

    Let’s get out of here

    Let’s find somewhere

    Where the world can’t find us

    We’re trapped in

    Someone’s point of view

    But I know there’s

    So much out there for us

     

    I’ll take the long road babe

    I’ll take the long road

    I’ll go the long way babe

    I’ll go the long way

    I want the window seat so

    That I can see the view and

    I’ll take the long road baby

    So I can be with you

     

    We’re leaving

    With a one way ticket

    But it’s the journey

    Not the destination

    And I got all

    That I need in my heart

    But I’ll keep you

    Round for inspiration

     

    I’ll take the long road babe

    I’ll take the long road

    I’ll go the long way babe

    I’ll go the long way

    I want the window seat so

    That I can see the view and

    I’ll take the long road baby

    So I can be with you

     

    I spent too many days

    In some kind of haze

    Waiting for my angel to arrive

    I’ve spent too many nights

    Turning on the lights

    Looking for whatever was alive

     

    I’ll take the long road babe

    I’ll take the long road

    I’ll go the long way babe

    I’ll go the long way

    I want the window seat so

    That I can see the view and

    I’ll take the back way darlin’

    You know that’s what I’ll do yeah

    I’ll take the long road baby

    So I can be with you

    Long Way To Heaven

    As formless as fire

    Transparent as glass

    As warm as the summer sun

    And soft as the grass

     

    There’s California

    In a frame by my bed

    But there’s nothing but cotton

    Where I lay my head

     

    It’s a long way to heaven

    And it’s hard to see clear through the rain

    But I’m following the angels

    And I know that I’ll get there some day

     

    I’m looking for something

    To keep me alive

    I’ve felt the heartache

    And I’ve told the lies

     

    But maybe I’m missing

    The point of this game

    If you take the first step

    Then I’ll do the same

     

    It’s a long way to heaven

    And it’s hard to see clear through the rain

    But I’m following the angels

    And I know that I’ll get there some day

     

    All these tears are forgiven

    All this water runs clean

    I can breathe

    I can see

    I can love

    I can be

    Anything

    I want to be

     

    It’s a long way to heaven

    And it’s hard to see clear through the rain

    But I’m following the angels

    And I know that I’ll get there some day

    Angel Of The Blues

    Sometimes it’s easy

    And sometimes it’s hard

    Sometimes I can’t figure out

    Why we live apart

     

    Can’t give me no reason

    For me to believe

    The stories you tell yourself

    Why you’re not with me

     

    ‘Cause you’re my angel, angel, angel of the blues

    Yes you’re my angel, angel, angel of the blues

     

    I live my life searching

    For some kind of light

    And finally figured out

    What makes it right

     

    And you are the answer

    And you are the prayer

    But when I go look for you

    You’re never there

     

    ‘Cause you’re my angel, angel, angel of the blues

    Yes you’re my angel, angel, angel of the blues

     

    Just when I found my way home

    Just when I found my way home

    You look at me through jaded eyes

    And walk away

    What can I say

     

    I don’t need your pity

    And I can’t stand your tears

    ‘Cause I’ve been walking down

    This road many years

     

    And I will still love you

    Despite what you do

    ‘Cause all that I dream about

    Starts and ends with you

     

    ‘Cause you’re my angel, angel, angel of the blues

    Yes you’re my angel, angel, angel of the blues

    Previous Engagement

    We could sit around all day long

    Tell each other stories and sing each other songs

    But no matter what we say

    There’s something that always gets in the way

     

    Your previous engagement

    Your previous engagement

     

    I could hang out in this town

    And you’d bring me up when I’m feeling down

    But sometimes it’s cause of you

    Cause I know that no matter what we do

     

    You’ve got a previous engagement

    Previous engagement

     

    We sneak around

    We’re tearing up the town

    Sometimes I almost see

    How you might look at me

    Don’t go away

    But you can never stay

    You know you’ve got to take

    Responsibility

     

    (solo chorus)

     

    We might drink a bit too much

    We might sit so close we almost touch

    But I know you’ve got to go

    And pull down the curtain on this show

     

    For your previous engagement

    The Rest Of My Life

    Maybe I don’t have the answer

    And maybe this really is the end

    ‘Cause baby I don’t know how to fix this

    I don’t know how to make this

    The way it used to be

     

    ‘Cause I know something big is missing

    And I feel the emptiness inside

    Somehow a door has closed behind me

    And now you can find me

    Some place I’ve never been

     

    This is the rest of my life

    Living the rest of my life

    With this in my life

     

    Sunrise takes me to tomorrow

    And I know something’s not the same

    Tuesday I woke with a clear heart

    Wednesday was a new start

    To a different game

     

    This is the rest of my life

    Living the rest of my life

    With this in my life

     

    Fire in the sky

    Followed by these lullabies that help us close our eyes

    But in my mind’s eye

    I can see it time and time again

     

    Now I struggle for an answer

    Now I’m searching for some peace

    I’ve seen history unfolding

    The future I am holding

    Belongs to only me

     

    This is the rest of my life

    Living the rest of my life

    With this in my life

    Turning Circles

    Don’t come near me I’m contagious

    Though heaven knows just what I’ve got

    And though it hasn’t worked in ages

    It’s still worth giving it a shot

     

    Am I getting anywhere

    Turning circles in the air

     

    I wash my hands with dirty water

    Suffer thirst during the flood

    And I will lead this lamb to slaughter

    But I can’t wash away this blood

     

    Am I getting anywhere

    Turning circles in the air

    This life is messy and it isn’t very clear

    But I try to live it anyway

     

    I will try I will go I don’t have a choice now

    I will not be cynical I will raise my voice now

    Trust me take me lead me not into temptation

    Must be strong

     

    Am I getting anywhere

    Turning circles in the air

    This life is messy and it isn’t very clear

    But I try to live it anyway

    End Of The Road

    Suddenly it’s so bizarre

    Suddenly I haven’t got a clue

    Suddenly it’s gone to far

    Suddenly I don’t know what to do

    This time what can I say

    When the snow is in my eyes but I can’t turn away

    And everything I’m hoping for is changing into lonely shades of gray

     

    At the end of the road

    There is dark, there is light

    But it seems that I always confuse them

    And the choices I’ve learned

    To be wrong, to be right

    Suddenly seem to change and I’m losing them

     

    Now the sky is dark

    As the sun begins to fall

    And I close my eyes

    On the one who’s had it all

    And now these things I know

    The river’s at the sea I’ve to got to let it go

    And bring about tomorrow with just a silent prayer for yesterday

     

    At the end of the road

    There is dark, there is light

    But it seems that I always confuse them

    And the choices I’ve learned

    To be wrong, to be right

    Suddenly seem to change and I’m losing them

     

    Take it slow, make it last

    You take this whole damn thing too fast

    Lead me on, make me smile

    I think I’ll be here for a while

    No regrets, no surprise

    I’ll wipe these teardrops from my eyes

    Moving fast, far away

    Is the dawn of a new day

     

    At the end of the road

    There is dark, there is light

    But it seems that I always confuse them

    And the choices I’ve learned

    To be wrong, to be right

    Suddenly seem to change and I’m losing them

    I Hear You Call

    Outside the snow is falling

    I thought I heard you calling

    Calling out my name but I am here alone

    The clock it moves so slowly

    Reminding me how lonely

    Days can be and nights can turn your heart to stone

     

    I never realized you meant so much to me

    Now I’m a prisoner in quiet company

     

    As soon as I hear you call

    I throw my caution to the wind

    The writing’s on the wall

    I feel a lifetime’s happiness

    In no time at all

    As soon as I hear you call

     

    I cannot bear the silence

    Like some sudden violence

    Ripping at my heart in this way

    I want to reach and touch you

    But shadows close around you

    Pulling at your face until it fades away

     

    Until that moment that means so much to me

    I know then I am as strong as I can be

     

    As soon as I hear you call

    I throw my caution to the wind

    The writing’s on the wall

    I feel a lifetime’s happiness

    In no time at all

    As soon as I hear you call

     

    Take me away

    From this cold and lonely night

    Make it right

    Hold me ‘till the morning light

     

    As soon as I hear you call

    I throw my caution to the wind

    The writing’s on the wall

    I feel a lifetime’s happiness

    In no time at all

    As soon as I hear you call

    When You Go

    All this dreaming gets you nowhere

    All these strange embarrassed thoughts

    That lead you to another round

    Contradiction is everywhere

    No affliction breaks you down

    As quickly as your own despair

     

    But when you go

    No looking down

    You break the barriers that keep you on the ground

    But when you go

     

    All I’ve ever seen of Egypt

    I was reading in a book

    Someone who’d been there gave to me

    But I have never seen the pyramids

    I have never walked the path

    Between the Sphinx and the Red Sea

     

    But when you go

    No looking down

    You break the barriers that keep you on the ground

    But when you go

    You move ahead

    Release the storm clouds that live inside your head

     

    All I have is this confession

    That this fear is holding me

    So I better run, run to a better place

    And close my eyes and dive into the sea

     

    But when you go

    No looking down

    You break the barriers that keep you on the ground

    But when you go

    You move ahead

    Release the storm clouds that live inside your head

    Jerusalem

    Nobody told me the road would be this hard

    The hill would be so steep

    But history has written down the words you said

    And to this day repeat

     

    You are foe

    You are friend

    From the start

    To the end

    You are all

    You are one

    We are yours

    Jerusalem

    La la la…..

     

    Nobody told me that freedom would take this long

    As years they fade away

    Nobody told me that hate could be this strong

    To eclipse the light of day

     

    You are foe

    You are friend

    From the start

    To the end

    You are all

    You are one

    We are yours

    Jerusalem

    La la la…..

     

    And as the sun illuminates your dusty walls

    We wonder what we’ll see

    We know that you’ve shed your share of tears and blood

    But what is victory

     

    You are foe

    You are friend

    From the start

    To the end

    You are all

    You are one

    We are yours

    Lose My Way

    What do they call it

    A calculated risk

    Couldn’t imagine

    The pleasure I might miss

     

    I know the danger when you jump

    And I know the pleasure when you fall

    And I know the pain when you hit squarely on the ground

     

    But I’m not gonna worry

    And I’m not gonna cry

    Though I know you’re leaving

    When you say goodbye

    ‘Cause you’re not gonna break me

    And you’re not gonna win

    And I’m not gonna lose my way again

    Lose my way again

     

    I was biting my nails

    While you were biding your time

    But in the end you laid it

    Squarely on the line

     

    You didn’t want to take the jump

    ‘Cause you didn’t want to have to fall

    ‘Cause you know the pain when you hit squarely on the ground

     

    But I’m not gonna worry

    And I’m not gonna cry

    Though I know you’re leaving

    When you say goodbye

    ‘Cause you’re not gonna break me

    And you’re not gonna win

    And I’m not gonna lose my way again

    Lose my way again

     

    Gather my strength

    Back to the wall

    Face to the wind

    Taking my belongings home

    With me again

     

    But I’m not gonna worry

    And I’m not gonna cry

    Though I know you’re leaving

    You take this all for granted

    No you don’t have a clue

    You sit there with your stupid grin

    Is that all that you can do

     

    You take this love for granted

    And I’m starting to believe

    There’s not much left to hold me here

    I think it’s time to leave when I

     

    Stare out the window

    Turn on the news

    Act like my paradise is nothing you can use

    Turn on the radio and

    Tune you out

    I may be whispering but you should hear me shout

    You don’t listen

    Listen to me

     

    You never pay attention

    When I’m screaming to be heard

    Do I have to spell it out for you

    Do you need to see the words

    How long can we sit here

    In completely separate rooms

    With your attention somewhere else

    Do you hear me call the tune when I

     

    Stare out the window

    Turn on the news

    Act like my paradise is nothing you can use

    Turn on the radio and

    You don’t listen

    Listen to me

     

    Dirty windows, empty visions

    Do you see the bind that I’m in

    Cross the border to the threshold

    Heavy with the tears and then there’s

    You that sits apart in silence

    Never quite aware and science

    Can’t explain to me why you look

    Somewhere else when I

     

    Stare out the window

    Turn on the news

    Act like my paradise is nothing you can use

    Turn on the radio and

    Tune you out

    I may be whispering but you should hear me shout

    Cellar Door

    Every time you look at me

    I see something new

    You got a face with a vista and a

    Soul with a view

    But every time I come inside

    To take you by surprise

    I feel the gates come crashing down

    And the tension start to rise

     

    Because I’m standing at the threshold

    Of a long forgotten place

    And I’m looking for an answer that I

    Can’t see in your face

     

    I look out your window

    And I walk through your door

    I stare up at your ceiling

    And I dance upon your floor

    But underneath this house there is

    The key to something more

    Let me come inside your cellar door

     

    Put aside this peace of mind

    And step into the ring

    Come about, don’t show me out

    No, show me everything

    And if I walk through broken glass

    To get to you tonight

    Would you make it worth it

    Would you show me your light

     

    Because I’m standing at the border

    And the guard won’t let me through

    But I’ve got to make a break for it

    And get myself to you

     

     

    I look out your window

    And I walk through your door

    I stare up at your ceiling

    And I dance upon your floor

    But underneath this house there is

    The key to something more

    Let me come inside your cellar door

    Would it make it easier on you

    If you held the key

    If I step lightly

    If you follow me

     

    Because I’m standing at the threshold

    Of a long forgotten place

    And I’m looking for an answer that I

    Can’t see in your face

     

    I look out your window

    And I walk through your door

    I stare up at your ceiling

    And I dance upon your floor

    Body

    Round and hard and soft and flat

    The long the short the thin the fat

    But how do I hear music

    And what it does to me

    When I listen to your voice

    And hear angels sing

     

    And this, this is just a body

    And you, you are sunlight

    You are rushing wind

    How can I conceive it

    How can I hold you

    In these tiny hands

     

    Smooth and dark and rough and pale

    Sinew muscle tooth and nail

    But how do I see colors

    And when they do to me

    The vibrant red of every rose

    That you give to me

     

    And this, this is just a body

    And you, you are sunlight

    You are rushing wind

    How can I conceive it

    How can I hold you

    In these tiny hands

     

    And how do I feel love

    And what you do to me

    When I look into your eyes

    And it’s your heart I see

     

    And this, this is just a body

    And you, you are sunlight

    You are rushing wind

    How can I conceive it

    How can I hold you

    In these tiny hands

    Hope

    Another page has turned

    Another bridge has burned

    What is the lesson learned this time

     

    I stare into the sun

    To try and blind my eyes

    Instead I see a shadow of its light

     

    And when nothing is left in this world for me

    And the journey is left to an endless sea

    There is

     

    Hope

     

    And when there’s no way out

    The barrel of this gun

    You throw your weapons down and run

     

    I don’t know what this means

    Don’t think I ever will

    That’s when I close my eyes and be still

     

    And when nothing is left in this world for me

    And the journey is left to an endless sea

    There is

     

    Hope

     

    Lead on I will follow

    Fireworks will be here tomorrow

    I will beg steal or borrow

    But I’m not gonna lay down

    No I’m not gonna lay down

    When there is

     

    Hope

    Driving In The Rain

    I think I passed route 60

    Several miles back

    I don’t know I can’t be sure

    Don’t know where I’m going

    But I’m going fast

    Looking for some kind of cure

     

    I don’t know where I’ll be when morning fills the sky

    All I know is that your last words were goodbye

    Driving

     

    Driving in the rain

    Straight ahead till morning

    I will feel no pain

    But it comes without a warning like a flash of lighting there beyond the trees

    Driving in the rain

     

    If I keep on going

    Maybe I’ll forget

    Where I’ve been these past few hours

    Think I know this story

    Think I’ve heard these lines

    When I left that ivory tower

     

    I don’t want to leave here lying on the floor

    I don’t want to look back when I close that door

    Driving

     

    Driving in the rain

    Straight ahead till morning

    I will feel no pain

    But it comes without a warning like a flash of lighting there beyond the trees

    Driving in the rain

     

    Don’t know how many miles

    I’ve put between us two

    In my effort to escape

    Seems it doesn’t matter

    What the distance reads

    Or the effort that I make

     

    The road before me glistens in the moonlight and the rain

    The warmth of daylight’s fading and the air is cool again

    Driving

     

    Driving in the rain

    Straight ahead till morning

    I will feel no pain

    But it comes without a warning like a flash of lighting there beyond the trees

    Driving in the rain

    A Little Too Soon

    One day they tell me we’ll all fly to the stars

    We’ll spend our days on Venus and we’ll spend our nights on Mars

    But I don’t see that happening to me

    I don’t think that’s how it’s gonna be

     

    I’ll never fly into space

    I’ll never walk on the moon

    I’ll never go where no one has gone before

    ‘Cause I was born a little too soon

    Yes I was born a little too soon

     

    Well my great-granddad was never on a jet

    He never had a VCR or surfed the internet

    And my children’s children will see

    All these things that weren’t meant for me

     

    I’ll never fly into space

    I’ll never walk on the moon

    I’ll never go where no one has gone before

    ‘Cause I was born a little too soon

    Yes I was born a little too soon

     

    All of this wishing

    All of this wanting to see

    All my curiosity

    Is running away with me

    Can’t escape this prison

    Can’t escape this prison of time

    Leaving history behind

    To those I’ll never find

     

    I’ll never fly into space

    I’ll never walk on the moon

    I’ll never go where no one has gone before

    ‘Cause I was born a little too soon

    Yes I was born a little too soon

    Last Train To Baltimore

    Late at night when I’m all alone

    I think about picking up the phone

    And calling my baby who’s so far away

    And ask him if he’s coming back some day

     

    Because my baby took the last train to Baltimore

    I don’t think he’s coming round no more

    Because my baby took the last train to Baltimore

    And I don’t think he’s coming home again

     

    He’s the man brought me to my knees

    Let me be anything I please

    But when he departed my heart it went breaking in two

    And I just don’t know what to do

     

    Because my baby took the last train to Baltimore

    I don’t think he’s coming round no more

    Because my baby took the last train to Baltimore

    And I don’t think he’s coming home again

     

    I can’t go on, you know it’s true

    Without my baby to get me through

    So I came up with a scheme or two

    And now I know what I got to do

     

    I’m gonna get me on that last train to Baltimore

    I’m gonna knock down my baby’s door

    You’re gonna find me on that last train to Baltimore

    And I ain’t never coming home again

     

    Because my baby took the last train to Baltimore

    I don’t think he’s coming round no more

    Because my baby took the last train to Baltimore

    And I don’t think he’s coming home again

    Damage

    I can’t say you never warned me

    I can’t say I didn’t know

    Cause you showed all the signs of damage

     

    I still know why I came here

    But I don’t know why I stayed

    Cause you showed all the signs of damage

     

    It’s a miracle now we ever got through to this place baby

    No I can’t understand why I didn’t jump off long ago

    But looking back it seemed I would have been giving up

    And giving up was a thing I didn’t know

     

    I can’t say I never loved you

    I can’t say I didn’t try

    But you showed all the signs of damage

     

    I just kept getting closer

    When I should have turned and run

    When you showed all the signs of damage

     

    It’s a miracle now we ever got through to this place baby

    No I can’t understand why I didn’t jump off long ago

    But looking back it seemed I would have been giving up

    And giving up was a thing I didn’t know

     

    So leave me my decision

    And let me walk away

    Till I see no more signs of damage

     

    And I’ll recover slowly

    Repair this broken heart

    Till I see no more signs of damage

     

    It’s a miracle now we ever got through to this place baby

    No I can’t understand why I didn’t jump off long ago

    But looking back it seemed I would have been giving up

    And giving up was a thing I didn’t know

    Uninvolved

    Long ago when I met you

    I used to think it was great

    You’d sit me down by myself and you’d tell me all the things you hate

    It used to make me feel special

    It used to make me feel fine

    But now I know that I was only wasting time

     

    Uninvolved

    I want to be

    Uninvolved

    I don’t want to know what’s going on

    With you now anymore

    I want to be

    Uninvolved

    I don’t want to see you with another reason why

    No one cares anymore

     

    I wonder what you were thinking

    When you’d drag me down

    Did you think that I’d help you recover, turn you around

    But you had nothing to offer

    And I had nothing to take

    It’s funny now when I think of all the excuses you’d make

     

    Uninvolved

    I want to be

    Uninvolved

    I don’t want to know what’s going on

    With you now anymore

    I want to be

    Uninvolved

    I don’t want to see you with another reason why

    No one cares anymore

     

    I don’t ever want to hear you talking

    I don’t ever want to see you crying

    I don’t ever want to have to tell you

    Anymore that I want to be uninvolved

     

    Uninvolved

    I want to be

    Uninvolved

    I don’t want to know what’s going on

    With you now anymore

    I want to be

    Uninvolved

    I don’t want to see you with another reason why

    No one cares anymore

    Cracked

    Take the top down

    Shed this skin

    Ready your attack

    But you can’t break my heart

    ‘Cause it’s already cracked

     

    Mind your manners

    Laugh at me

    Turn and show your back

    But you can’t break my heart

    ‘Cause it’s already cracked

     

    Over and over and over again

    And only the strongest survive

    But somehow or other the beat will go on

    Enough now to keep me alive

     

    Learn your lessons

    Read your books

    Listing what I lack

    But you can’t break my heart

    ‘Cause it’s already cracked

     

    Turn the light off

    Turn away

    Sleeping on your back

    But you can’t break my heart

    ‘Cause it’s already cracked

     

    Song of the ages, the same melody

    The company kept here is fine

    I don’t need to heal I am what I’ve become

    And I will go on down the line

     

    Take the top down

    Shed this skin

    Ready your attack

    But you can’t break my heart

    ‘Cause it’s already cracked

    Before You Say Goodbye

    I see you moving toward the door

    I see that distant look in your eyes

    I ask if you’d like any more

    Your answer doesn’t come as a surprise

     

    Distraction, conversation

    Now the time has gone and it’s too late

    I wait for your reaction

    Sit and watch the action on my plate

     

    Kiss my lips, take my hand

    Put your battered arms around me and hold tight

    Have another glass of wine and close your eyes

    And as long as we’re here

    Why not just count all the stars up in the sky

    That should keep you here before you say goodbye

     

    I’m not a lunatic tonight

    I made myself that promise last time

    But I won’t give up without a fight

    Refusal to move off this one line

     

    What is this hyperactive

    Too distractive to believe the truth

    Instead I’m just reactive

    Getting late to blame it on my youth

     

    Kiss my lips, take my hand

    Put your battered arms around me and hold tight

    Have another glass of wine and close your eyes

    And as long as we’re here

    Why not just count all the stars up in the sky

    That should keep you here before you say goodbye

    Leaving Here Tomorrow

    Well I’m sitting at the table   

    Trying to write down all my thoughts

    And I know that I think too much

    It’s one of my many faults

    But I can’t resist temptation

    For the things I can’t control

    If I ask you to release me

    What is there left to know

     

    I do believe

    I’m leaving here tomorrow

    No turning back

    I’ve seen this place too many times before

    I close my eyes

    Too blind to see the doorway

    But I’ll sacrifice these feelings for a chance at freedom

     

    It’s a tempting conversation

    It’s a beautiful refrain

    And I know the night is falling

    And I think I hear the rain

    So I’ll let it go this evening

    I’ll surrender to the night

    And when I see the sunrise

    I won’t put up a fight

     

    I do believe

    I’m leaving here tomorrow

    No turning back

    I’ve seen this place too many times before

    I close my eyes

    Too blind to see the doorway

    But I’ll sacrifice these feelings for a chance at freedom

     

    You come to me

    But how can I make you see that

     

    I do believe

    I’m leaving here tomorrow

    No turning back

    I’ve seen this place too many times before

    I close my eyes

    Too blind to see the doorway

    But I’ll sacrifice these feelings for a chance at freedom

    Leave The Light On

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

    Let the dreamer dream

    But somehow the angel here is not the girl she seems

    Take away my hope

    Leave me to wander through the desert

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

     

    Lost like a dream

    When the morning comes around

    I know you’d never believe it

    Don’t let me leave

    ‘Cause I may not come back home

    But you, you take it or leave it

     

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

    Let the dreamer dream

    But somehow the angel here is not the girl she seems

    Take away my hope

    Leave me to wander through the desert

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

     

    Time for the tears

    Has long since gone away

    You know you’ll never find me there

    Go look away

    If that’s what you’d rather do

    I won’t try to make you care

     

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

    Let the dreamer dream

    But somehow the angel here is not the girl she seems

    Take away my hope

     

    Leave me to wander through the desert

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

     

    There will be

    There will be

    No turning back

    Don’t test me

    Don’t test me

    I won’t take that road anymore

     

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

    Let the dreamer dream

    But somehow the angel here is not the girl she seems

    Take away my hope

    Leave me to wander through the desert

    Leave the light on here

    Leave it to me

    Lullaby

    Why are you looking at me that way

    What are you seeing inside

    ‘Cause there’s nothing, nothing, nothing behind these eyes

    Something about this is bothering me

    Something about the way that you’re breathing

    Don’t you believe that there’s nothing to see

    Nothing of interest in here

     

    I will sing a lullaby

    Hoping you will close your eyes

    And you’ll stop trying to find in me

    All the answers you want to see

    Won’t you let me free

     

    Don’t try to tell me you know the score

    You let all your demons go free

    You know nothing, nothing, nothing at all about me

    You haven’t looked to the left or the right

    You have a smile of anticipation

    But I haven’t got any strength left to fight

    And so I will rock you to sleep

     

    I will sing a lullaby

    Hoping you will close your eyes

    And you’ll stop trying to find in me

    All the answers you want to see

    Pull this veil across your eyes

    Keep you warm and hypnotized

    And try to make you forget

    All the answers you want to get

    Won’t you let me free

     

    Lay your head down

    Close your weary eyes

    Breathe in, breathe out

    That’s right, no more talking

    Hush now, OK

    I’ll just sit beside you

    And when you wake

    I’ll be gone

     

    I will sing a lullaby

    Hoping you will close your eyes

    And you’ll stop trying to find in me

    All the answers you want to see

    Pull this veil across your eyes

    Keep you warm and hypnotized

    And try to make you forget

    All the answers you want to get

    Won’t you let me free
