Track Name: Wide Open Rivers
Why waste time bringing it back
You said ‘It’s over now’
Stretched my love on the rack
You said ‘It’s always the same,
It’s always the same with you’

And I wish you all of the best
You look so good in that dress
Ripped a hole in my chest
You see it’s always the same,
It’s always the same with you

And all you wanted was a piece of my mind
And you got what you came for
And left me behind
And all I wanted was to be with you
Did I ask you too fast, did I ask you too soon?
My head is overflowing

All rivers flow to the sea
And all that muddy brown water
Turns blue like me
And it’s always the same
It’s always the same with you

And I fell in over my head
I guess I drowned in you
And your wonderful bed,
And it’s never the same,
It’s never the same without you

And all you wanted was a piece of my mind
And you got what you came for
And left me behind,
And all I wanted was to be with you
Did I ask you too fast, did I ask you too soon?
My head is overflowing

Wide open rivers keep me rolling on
I am alone with you and
Wide open rivers keep me
Rolling on without you

And all I wanted was piece of your mind
And I got what I came for and left you behind
And all you wanted was to see it through
But you asked me too fast and you asked me too soon
My head was overflowing

Wide open rivers keep me rolling on
I am alone with you and
Wide open rivers keep me
Rolling on without you
Track Name: There
Well it’s said that this life is both brief and uncertain
A moment of sorrow a moment of care
Some walk to find loneliness haunts them like Judas
Some walk to find happiness vanquish the scared

And they’ll widen the gap and they’ll tell you you’re ugly
They’ll snap off your bow and they’ll cut off your hair
They’ll walk you right down to the garden you watered
They’ll step on your love if you don’t stand and say that you’re there

It’s so hard to find truth in this chaos
For chaos in truth is so certain it bears
But of this I am sure we are given a purpose
And choice is a wonder familiar and rare

And they’ll hide in your thoughts and they’ll call you a liar
They’ll tighten the knot till you’re struggling for air
And they’ll wrinkle red plastic and call it a fire
And they’ll burn out your love if you don’t stand . . .

There

Well it makes me sad and it makes me furious
It makes me so mad that I almost despair
When we run from the one that we always desired
When we dance around everyone but our true care

And they’ll spin you in circles then point to the tightrope
They’ll deal you their cards and they’ll tell you it’s fair
And they’ll listen for only what words they are after
And they’ll steal all your love if you don’t stand…

There
Track Name: Worries I've Had
Worries I’ve had
darkness I’ve felt
its hand around me
but I bear to
look you in the eye
and say I’m sorry

Hard as I tried to push myself away
I’ve not departed
and I bear to
hold your cheek to mine
and say I’ve always loved you

I saw your lazy eye
and knew that you’d look over me
now I will hold you in mine
and wrap myself around you
in the darkness

Now love wasn’t found
it was fought for on the ground
and up those dark stairs
but I bear to
see you in the light
cos I adore you

I saw your lazy eye
and knew that you’d look over me
now I will hold you in mine
and wrap myself around you
in the darkness.
Track Name: Dont' Fall Under
Wait wait wait
I don’t know what to say I’m afraid
I don’t know what to say to relate
I see you falling down
Please don’t fall under

When I read
The notice on the floor by your bed
The wood just turned to water until
I drowned inside my head

Did you fall under?
I’m locked out, I’m locked out

I knew you
Better than the breath in my cheek
I never knew you’d play for keeps
I never new you’d pray
To fall under

Two mistakes
Don’t make for a right I’ve made
A blunder in the night
I’ve paid the poor but not the price

Please don’t fall under
I’m locked out, I’m locked out
Please don’t fall under
I’m locked out, I’m locked out

An island’s lost
A word is all I’ve got to cast
A line into the sea of your art
A lion into the breach
Please don’t fall under

We have burned
We’ve burned a hole in mars we have earned
The time between two stars we have learned
To widen up our arc

Please don’t fall under
I’m locked out, I’m locked out
Please don’t fall under
I’m locked out, I’m locked out

So don’t fall under
Please don’t fall under
Track Name: I Wont' Know You Anymore
And I won’t know you anymore
and I won’t know you anymore
and I won’t know you anymore,
because I’m walking out the door,
and I won’t call you anymore.

And I was often in my head
and I was often in my head
and I was often in my head,
there were words I never said,
and there were words I never said.

And we were holding onto dust
and we were holding onto dust
and we were holding onto dust,
I guess the wind was envious,
I guess the wind was envious.

Were we hypnotised?
I could have filled a cloudless sky,
with all the tears I never cried.

And when you ask me who I am
and when you ask me who I am
and when you ask me who I am,
then I reply “the other man”,
then I reply “the other man”.

Yet I will own the streets tonight,
yet I will own the streets tonight,
yet I will own the streets tonight,
as the falling satellites
come crashing, at my side.

Were we hypnotised?
I could have filled a cloudless sky,
with all the tears I never cried.
Were we hypnotised?
or were we strangers in our eyes?
or were we strangers in our eyes?
Track Name: Bones
Won’t you understand? Won’t you hold my hand?
Won’t you take me in your cover?
Won’t you have me stay? Won’t you run away?
Won’t you hide me from your father?
Cos I’m almost here, and I’m surely gone
And I’m standing in your doorway
Won’t you keep me safe? Won’t you call the chase?
Won’t you strike me down or love me?

But your silence makes me cold

And there’s a crashing of the bowls that are barely touching
And you’re smashing around the kitchen with your shuffling
And your silence makes them bones
Your silence makes them bones
Your silence makes me homesick for a place
That I don’t know

And it’s only since I’m gone you think you own me
And it’s only since I met you I’ve been lonely
And it’s only in the hiding that you show me
The door before me is closed
And your silence makes them bones
Won’t you be my friend? Won’t you be my
Enemy of generous destruction?
Won’t you comprehend? Won’t you send your
Infidels of meaningless construction?
Cos I’m almost here, and I’m surely gone
And I’m standing in your doorway
Won’t you bring me in? Won’t you cast me out?
Won’t you strike me down or love me?

But your silence makes me cold

And the Marian you play is very touching
And I’ve hardly played the duke but I’ve been sucked in
And your silence shakes my bones
Your silence shakes my bones
Your silence makes me homesick for a place
That I don’t know

And it’s only since I’m gone you think you own me
And it’s only since I met you I’ve been lonely
And it’s only in the hiding that you show me
The door before me is closed
And it’s only since you left you say you love me
And It’s only since I’m gone you think I’m lovely
And it’s only in my nakedness you covet me
And it’s only when I jumped you say you shoved me
Outside to the bones
Outside to the bones
Track Name: We Go Out
Was all in my head
As she walked round the corner
And all that she said was I
‘Really look forward to
Meeting your mother
And meeting your daughter and
Are you an island
Or a drop in the water?’

Well I am an island
And I am a fortress
If you can breach these walls
I’ll give you a quarter
Of gold that’s not gold
It’s a fortunate soul
She sings that my name’s a story
That’s sung when it’s told!’

We go out
Into the rain when it pours
And the wind when it calls us

Now strummer once told me
Some rich and some poor
But when she cried I knew
She lived close to the shore
You see we’re all born somewhere
And we all go someplace so
I’ll be the wind in your face
And the hand at your oar…

Into the rain when it pours
And the wind when it calls us to
Roar into the new day that’s dawning
And on then and on then and out

Well I’ve been a sailor
Passed sirens’ sweet voices
She sat with a Chimera
Shucking wild oysters and
Choices of love are a
Monstrous thing they sing
‘Choices of love are a
Hideous and monstrous thing’…

Into the rain when it pours
And the wind when it calls us to
Sing into the new day that’s dawning
And on then and on then and out

Spokes on a wheel
Turn like words that go around
And I hope that I feel something
Deep and profound and the
Joker once told me to
‘Never look down because
Hope is a breeze that comes once
So you better look out’

Into the rain when it pours
And the wind when it calls us to
Shout into the new that’s dawning
And on then and on
We go out
Into the rain when it pours
And the wind when it calls us to
Howl into the new that’s dawning
And on then and on then and out
Track Name: Helen
She lay beside him on the floor
Now nothing is the same as it was before
And all the thousand ships hauled east
As they swum through blackened seas

And the face I’ve never seen
Well it burns my dreams
And tears old Priam’s walls apart
And strikes the oil and urn
To light the stars

When all the infidels are seized
When all injustice is relieved
When all the sinners kiss the floor
When perfect peace reigns on us all

When all our memories are gone
Like golden splinters in the sun
Still a face I’ve never seen
Would burn, would burn my dreams
Track Name: They Don't Know You Like I Do
Don’t send me your photograph
I’m over the other side
Your happiness makes me smile
Your happiness makes me sad

Cos they don’t know you like I do
They don’t know you like I do

Don’t send me you lovely sighs
Like death from another time
Your friends keep you warm at night
Your friends keep you warm at night

But they don’t know you like I do
They don’t love you like I do
They don’t know you like I do
They don’t burn for you like I do
Track Name: My Shore
And now we go again
And now we go out to the water where this song began
And on the water there’s a ship beside an angel
And she calls me out

The clouds are rolling in
A change is coming and I don’t know when we’ll meet again
And I will hold you for the last time as we sing again
Our salty tunes

And on the avenue
The broken bottles sing the chorus like a drunken muse
And I am praying like a pilgrim to the holy moon
That I’d soon forget you

And oh my shore
How I long to go homeward to you once more
But onward beyond we’re drawn
Out toward the distant dawn

The doves are sailing in
In high formation like a wall that’s finally caving in
The skies fall softly on the pavement where we used to sit
And it’s all clear now

An SOS again
I’m in a mess but I have saved my best for last again
And on the frontier I’m a sailor, I’m a soldier
And I’d almost die to hold you now

And oh my shore
How I long to go homeward to you once more
But onward beyond we’re drawn
Out toward the distant storm

Well how I long to go homeward to you once more
But onward beyond we’re drawn
Out toward the distant dawn
And oh my shore
How I long to go homeward to you once more
But onward beyond
But onward beyond we’re drawn out toward
The distant dawn
