You Will Become

In time this won't even matter
This chapter will be long on the grass
And we'll talk about everything 'til it's easier
Your beauty is nothing compared to what

You will become
You will become
You will become
In time, become

And we talked about talk of a gold ring
And you brought me one step closer to the heart of things
We talked about everything 'til we laughed about it
Your honesty is nothing compared to what

 

Maybe Not Tonight

Echoes of another time
Playin' lightly on my mind
There's many rivers still to cross
To temper the bitterness in love
Though what you say is true
This might be it for me and you
Maybe we can draw that line
Maybe another time

Well I wanna do what's right
But maybe not tonight

Memories of another time
Those pretty eyes, that pretty frown
And in the long grass where we lay
Let the whole world fall away
And though in time we walked apart
You were always in my heart
Maybe we should say goodbye
But maybe not tonight

I remember you were just a child
Burning brightly and running wild
We married on an August night
No priest, no church, just a big moon shining bright
Maybe we should be moving on
And figure what is done is done
Maybe we should break those vows
Aw, but maybe not right now

Maybe we should do what's right
Maybe not tonight
Maybe we should both just do what's right
Baby, not tonight

 

Talking With The Wolves

Simon
You are the model of your age
Don't let the bastards take the stage
They don't love you

And hey
You are a pure light on the waves
Don't let them turn us into slaves
They don't care for you, like I do

Love that's given freely
It doesn't die, it only changes
And love that's taken easy
It has to hide in these exchanges

Glory
Don't get trampled under dust
Don't tell yourself you're out so much
Sometimes words won't be enough

And talkin', talkin' with the wolves
And you're talkin', talkin'
We don't even notice you

 

High Hope

I'm workin' on the high hope
And if it all works out, you might just see me
Or hear from me in a while
I'm gonna make it across this tight rope
Then I'm comin' for my prize
No more I'll be waitin' 'round
While life just passes by

Maybe when our hearts realign
Maybe when we've both had some times
I'm gonna see you there
I'm gonna see you there, lay
Where we can be natural, lay

Cause I've been livin' in the half life
Not sure which way to turn
Why must a man lose everything
To find out what he wants

I'm gonna wait until it feels right
And when that time has come
Wild horses won't keep me back
From where you have gone

Maybe when we're both old and wise
Maybe when our hearts have had some time
I'm gonna see you there

After all we've seen
We can do anything, lay
Where your heart is strong
Where we can go on and on, lay
Where your good times gone
Where we are forever young, lay
Where your heart is strong
Where we can go on and on, lay, lay!

I wanna see you there

 

Bird Of Sorrow

Even if a day feels too long
You feel like you can wait another one
You're slowly givin' up on everything
Love is gonna find you again
Love is gonna find you, you better be ready then

You been kneelin' in the dark for far too long
You've been waitin' for that spark, but it hasn't come
Well I'm callin' to you, please, get off the floor
A good heart will find you again
A good heart will find you, just be ready then

Tethered to a bird of sorrow
A voice that's buried in the hollow
You've given over to self-deceivin'
Your prostrate bowed would not be leavin'
You've squandered more than you could borrow
You've bet your joys on all tomorrows
For the hope of some returnin'
While everything around just burnin'

Come on, we gotta get out, get out of this mess we made
And still for all our talk, we're both so afraid
Well will we leave this up to chance, like we do everything?
Love is gonna find us again
Love is gonna find us, we gotta be ready then

But I'm not leavin' you yet
I'm not leavin' you yet
I'm not leavin'
I'm not leavin', yeah, yeah
I'm not leavin'
I'm not leavin', yeah, yeah
I'm hangin' on
I'm hangin' on
What's gonna come?
I'm hangin' on now
Hangin' on, Hangin' on
Hangin' on, Hangin' on
Hangin' on, Hangin' on
With the faith full
I'm with the faith full
I'm hangin' on
What's gonna come?
What's gonna come?
Hangin' on
Hangin' on
The faith full
The faith full

 

The Storm, It's Coming

Naked from the fee
From the decade of the bees
On a new road
With no true know that see it

There's doubt in every face
And there's a liar on the stage
And what good is it
If you don't hear him say of believing

Every clap brings out a warning
Get ready for the storm, it's coming
Yeah, it's coming

So slap back in the face
For a city county race
And the coin drops in the box
Don't change the meter

There's a storm and it's a raging
In the belly of the slaving
It's coming, it's coming
It's coming, it's coming

And when the wind howls at your gate
Already it is too late
It's coming, it's coming

 

Love Don't Leave Me Waiting

Love, you've been hesitating
You've been hanging on for that sign too long
And love, you've been leaving me waiting
And I don't know why or what it is I've done

And love, don't leave me guessing
Oh, love, don't keep me
Show yourself to me

And time, you've been erasing
You've been running out on me
And tongues, you've been a talking
You've been saying what you really mean

And love, don't leave me waiting
Oh, love, don't keep me
And love, don't leave me guessing
Oh, love, don't keep me
Show yourself, show yourself

And love, don't leave me waiting
Oh, love, don't keep me
And love, don't leave me guessing
Oh, love, don't keep me
Show yourself to me

 

What Are We Gonna Do

What are we gonna do
If we lose that fire
What are we gonna do
If we start to doubt, if that fire goes out
I don't wanna lose you
To some bullshit hurt that could've been helped
I'm trying to tell you something
That good good heart is your greatest will
So what are we gonna do
If we lose that fire
What are we gonna do
If we start to doubt, if that fire goes out

I don't wanna change you
But you're a long, long way from ?
I'm trying to show you something
Good good heart will always find love

What are we gonna do
If we lose that fire
What are we gonna do
If you start to doubt, if that fire goes out

 

Races

Well I win some races
That don't mean I'm fastest
And it don't mean I'm better
Than anyone

And I ride some horses
With great speed over courses
It's just cause you ain't here
For me at the line

Cause for you I could win
For you I could trust myself
And for you I could throw with abandon
Old glories all feign to the wind
Cause I never left you
And you never let me go
Oh

And if I can have the glory
I'd give it up gladly
Oh how we sucked in the limelight
And left best friends behind

Will you come walk beside me
To the end of this story
And I'll let you go gently
Among your own kind, oh

For you I will win
For you I will trust myself
For you I should throw with abandon
Old glories are everything to the wind

Cause I never left you
And you never let me go
And I never left you
And you never let me go

 

Philander

Stuck in... the corner
I'm kissin' my Philander
Well, she never said goodbye... only see ya later
While I'm makin' this a plan for you

And I'm always gonna love you
I'm always gonna stay
Here... with my Philander
Up here... on this platter
And I'm laid out, for Philander

I'll star you in my movie
I'm makin' it now
So come on, you little actor
Don't let me down, Philander

And I'm always gonna love you
And I'm never gonna stray
And I'm always gonna love you
And I'm always gonna stay

Here... with my Philander

 

Song Of Good Hope

If we're gonna make it
'Cross this river alive
We need to think like a boat
And go with the tide

And I know where you've been
It's really left you in doubt
Of ever finding a harbour
Of figuring this out

And your goal you need
All the help you can get
So lift up your arms now
And reach for it
And reach for it

And take your time babe
It's not as bad as it seems, you'll be fine babe
It's just some rivers and streams in between
You and where you wanna be
And watch the signs now
You'll know what they mean, you'll be fine now
Just stay close to me and make good hope
Walk with you through everything

May the song of good hope
Walk with you through everything

 

Come Away To The Water

Come away little lass come away to the water,
To the arms that are waiting only for you
Come away little lass come away to the water,
To the ones appointed to see it through
We are calling to you

Come away little light come away to the laughter,
Show yourself so we might live
Come away little light come away to the laughter,
To the ones appointed to see it through
We are coming for you
We are coming for you

Come away little lamb come away to the water,
Give yourself so we might live anew
Come away little lamb come away to the slaughter,
To the ones appointed to see it through
We are coming for you
We are coming for you

 

This Gift

This gift will last forever
This gift will never let you down
Some things are made from better stuff
This gift is waiting to be found

Your heart's in wide receiving
Been too long buried in the sand
Some things require leaving
This gift will fall right in your hand
Just try to understand...

If you long enough
And you don't give up
If you're strong enough
And you don't give up
And you...

You'll be no harbor to the sorrow
Just let it go.

Don't hang your head in sorrow
Don't give up just before you win
Don't wait around for tomorrow
Open up your arms and let it in

This gift will last forever
This gift will never let you down
Some things are made from better stuff
This gift is ready to be found
Just you believe it now

This gift will last forever
This gift will never let you down
Some things are made from better stuff
This gift is ready to be found
Your heart's in wide receiving
Been too long buried in the sand
Some things require believing
These things just fall right in your hand
Just try to understand

If you long enough
And you don't give up
If you're strong enough
And you don't give up

Without delay

Take my hand
'Cause I'm lost you see
A rare, rare bird
You are to me
