1. You Can’t Go Back

If you go I will fall
Into the deep
In you, well I have discovered
Everything I need to live
Forget the smoke and mirrors
You can’t go back
If you leave I will drown
Take your key
Burn this town
There’s no way now
In you, well I have uncovered
Everything I need to be
No conjuring the past
You can’t go back
You were the island in the waves

My life will never be the same In you, well I’ve found a lover
Every bit I need to breathe
No hocus pocus here
You can’t go back

2. Do You Recall?

I can’t recall just what was said
I won’t bring back the words that led to
The breaking down and trails of dead
I cannot recall

I think I had a sweater on
Maybe just a blanket to keep me
Warm when all the blood was gone
I cannot recall

Well I see no reason here I’m sleeping light
And I see no reason alone at night
Well I find no answers here my bed is cold
Well I find no answers here
Do you…?

I can’t recall what broke the thread
I won’t bring back the pull that led to
The tearing down of all ahead
I cannot recall

Well I see no reason here the fear resides
And I see no reason here across the line
Well I find no answers here a tale untold
Well I find no answers here
Do you?

Well do you recall?
What made us fall?
Was there noise at all?
Oh do you recall?

3. Waiting

I know you carry him
That blanket still remembered
A kiss upon your skin
Of which you did surrender
An embrace upon a page
A man remains defended
So where do I begin
To overtake the ending

All my bones they are for you
All waiting

Feeling worse the wine
A drunken made confession
Now empty of your sins
I’m left to take possession

All my dreams they are for you
All waiting

All my starry eyes for you
All waiting

Will you look away?
Long enough to notice the way
I’m standing at your gate waiting

4. On Top Of Your Love

You scare me half to death
But you bring on my best
The worst I haven’t seen
But give it all to me

I wanna get on top of your love…

When you’re lying on your back
And our weapons they attack
This crown of love is cruel
And I may be the fool

I feel it in my bones

Oh the fatigue of lust
When dizzying and hushed
In matters of the flesh
Incapable of rest

Ecstasy’s on the altar
That I will find there in between you
And in the moment after
I know I’ll hold you near me

5. Birds On Sunday

Well I went walking in the woods Sunday
Dragged my feet through the undergrowth
Stumbling upon a bird instead
Singing songs sweet of hope and…

So I went back there the very next day
Found no trace of the sweet song
Dragged my feet just the very same way
But no melody rang home
No birds to sing
No bird

Waiting there to blessed my roam
No melody
No melody to save
Ringing out with sacred tones
No melody
No melody to sing

No bird to sing
Why won’t those birds begin?
To sing…

Well I went walking in the woods Sunday

6. The Island

I spent my life so patient
Waiting for the descent
The gift to bring me water
The drought that ends thereafter

I tread my foot most lightly
Past the day left nightly
And striving to be honest
But hopeless without ballast

For the light did sweep across the sea
You were the keeper of the key
And the holder of my destiny
A thousand poems for the sight I’ve seen
I’ve found myself the island

A tree will bend and offer
The branch to give the altar
My promise will not falter
To you my dearest lover

And now we lay
Down the day
In this we’re safe
We know the way
Where we’re going

7. A Discovery (We’re Lovely)

Hope, hope
Filling a bucket full
Lines, lines
Between them I see the signs
Of stars, of stars
Heaven knows I’m alarmed
By what’s been armed by us

Luck, luck
We’re praying it’s in the cup
Delight, delight
Thinking we have arrived
The sounds, the sounds
Heaven knows what’s around
And what’s been bound in us

We’re lovely
We’re lovely
There’s nothing above it
We’re lovely
So lovely
Our beauty’s a discovery
And it’s time

Life, life
Regardless of all the strife
It led, it led
Me down this here road to get
To you, to you
I’ve everything here to lose
So I’ve hired the moon for us

8. Tonight I Will Be Your Guide

You’ve been burning your bridge
Peering over your ledge
Letting darkness come in with applause
And the sorrows you keep
Are the waters run deep
But tonight I will be your guide

Oh the judgment you hold
In the pages you fold
Are held tightly and clenched in a fist
You’re your own verdict led
And it’s off with your head

But tonight I will be your guide
Oh sad eyes
Oh sad eyes

9. Paradise

My dove
You came to the window as a spark
And left as a raven after dark
Was I the tourist in your heart?

Now love
I tried to be native in your land
But you dismissed me careless hand

For I’ve held paradise
But lost sight of it now

And time
Don’t be a stranger with a drop
Fill in the spaces
Set up shop
I need a fix
Fast forward clocks

All I want is to hold you to me now
All I want is forever to allow

10. Lady In White

Oh goodbye my lady in blue
What is now this man to do?
Well I know you’ll need this tonight
So I’ll think of you lady in white

For blue is the color of tears
An ocean of you wrapped in years
I know you’ll get through tonight
If I think of you lady in white

Well oh sorry drummer player on
Remember my lady in song
I know I’ll prove this tonight
If I think of my lady in white

Yes goodbye my lady in blue
What is now this man to do?
I know I love you tonight
So I’ll think of you lady in white…
My beautiful lady in white

Oh goodbye our ladies in blue
What is now this world to do?
Well I know we’ll need this tonight
Could we think of our ladies in white?
For blue is the color of our tears
It’s an ocean of us wrapped in years
I know we’ll get through tonight
If we sing for our ladies in white…
Could we sing for our ladies in white?

11. When Nothings Left

What is this we find ourselves alone again?
Just you and I a force against the gears
If nothing’s left to burn we must burn ourselves
When nothing’s left to burn

How is this we find ourselves as two again?
Yes you and I a rage against the mirror
If nothing’s left to say we must speak ourselves
When nothing’s left to say

How my love this moment here is ripe for us
Yes you and I so brave against the years
If nothing’s left to live we must find a way
When nothing’s left to live

With all my heart…

Yes how my love this moment here is ripe for us
Yes you and I so brave against the years
If nothing’s left to live we must find a way
There’s reason yet to live
There’s something left to give
We must find a way
There is so much to give
