Track Name: Down To The Water
You know why the moon

Laughs at the sun



You know why the hearts break

Every one



You know why it's so hard

To part the seas



And you

Know me



So I'll go down to the water

Down to the water

Singing

You ain't loving nobody's daughter



Because there's something about you baby

Something I don't know



Something about you baby

I don't know where to go





I know why the snow

Falls from the sky



But I'm not sure why

There's nothing left of you and I



You know why it's so hard

To really see



And you

know me



So I'll go down to the river

Down to the river

Singin'

You never knew who you were

Before you were with her



I go where you go

I see what you see



I know what you know

But baby I don't know anything



I'll cry when you cry

I'll be wrong when you're right



I see what you see

But baby I don't see anything

No I don't see anything





I'll go down to the water

Down to the water singin'

You fell in love with somebody's good daughter



it's soft and it's low

It's what no nobody knows



And it's soft and its sweet

The agony of defeat

But I've got to let it go
Track Name: Thunder And Lightning
There's little pieces of light coming through the windows

There's little pieces of us all around



And I know how it is, I just can't say no

I've got this feeling all around



Can't you feel the air coming in?

The wind is high and the sky is darkening



But the thunder and lightning

is coming in close tonight

Oh and isn't frightening

I won't make it out with my life



The dust is flying high

It's starting to turn to gold

And with a wonder like us

It's no wonder we never grow old



I can feel your skin

Come close I'm burning
Track Name: She
She pulls into the hotel
She knows what city she's in tonight
But does she care?

She can go anywhere

She's not open for business
But she'll take in money from time to time
No she's not rich
But she knows who is

You've got to learn to see with your eyes and move with your feet
You've got to learn to talk with your hands and live on the street
You've got to learn to love everybody you meet
You've gotta learn to trust in what you can't see

(Harmonica)

I can feel a cold wind
Coming like a train and it's not stopping
Can you feel the chill?
It's coming down over the hill

Turn off your light babe
Turn off your light and close the window
And come back home
Keep singing along to the radio

You've got to learn to see with your eyes and move with your feet
You've got to learn to talk with your hands and live on the street
You've got to learn to love everybody you meet
You've gotta learn to trust in what you can't see

She's gonna leave me but not today
She says she's got some new kind of way
And I don't know where she belongs
But I can write her a song
Track Name: Wondering
So much wasted in the afternoon

How about you?



About ready to go back to bed

When it's only a quarter to two



My mind is swirling

My head is turning on the pillow





Too much head space

I've got too much to erase



I know that my true love awaits

Someday



I won't lie

I have no time

For someone I can't refuse



That's why



I'm wondering

Can I love you any more

Then I do right now?



And I'm wondering

Can we live like we did before?

Right now



How do I strike out on my own

When there's too much out there for one man to know



Pink lace and artifacts

You take the hard road and I'll get your back



This road leads to nowhere

And that's exactly where I need to be



This road leads to nowhere

And I don't need no company



And I can't lie

If being alright was something I was born to do



I'm wondering

Can I love you any more

Then I do right now?



And I'm wondering

Can we live like we did before?

Right now



We are like burning embers

Caught in the fabric of my clothes



We are like the snow in December

Where it lands, no one knows

No no one knows
Track Name: A Song Of Your Love
You don't know why you're going

You don't understand



Go look at the pictures

On your nightstand



No he's not gonna hold you forever



I've got smog on fingers

I've got smog in my eyes



I've got blue eyed ambition

And farfetched - desires



But it can't last forever



Send me a notice

When you are in the coldest

Weather that you've ever known



And send to me a letter

Things will get better

Send me a song of your love



Some days I wish I was a cowboy

Who lived wild and free



No cares about women

Or university



And I've hunted down the hours of every day



Some days I wish I was a leaf

Who flew on the wind



And that rents out a place for a few days

And leaves without telling



But I can't be away for too long



So just leave me letter

It don't have to be much better

Than a sticky note next to the TV



And baby I've been thinking

I'm done with all the wishing

So just send me a song of your love



You went from blue eyed

You went from clean



You went from blonde haired

I lost that gleam



You went from blue eyed

And that's just what I mean



And you left me with nothing but a magazine

Nothing but a silver screen
Track Name: Two A.M, Rain Again
It's two AM

Rain Again

I sometimes wish that it would never end



A vacant laugh

That vacant smile

I can only stay for a little while

And so it goes



(Interlude)



I feel the rain

Pouring down inside

But I just don't care anymore



Do you feel that feeling?

Welling up inside

Let's push it out the door



(Interlude) And it comes slow

But no one will ever know

And it comes easier

Than it ever did before





Because it's two AM

Rain again

The pouring inside me will not ever end



It's cold out there

But it's warm inside

Come here baby let's not check the time



(Interlude) Can you see the snow

Turn to rain

No matter how hard we try

It will never go away

Because



The storm's not over

These clouds won't pass

Baby I'm in love

With another type of class and it's



The finer things

That I enjoy

But I can still remember

How to be a little boy



And it's another kind of lonely

Knowing your "if only"

Is leaving with the seasons

And leaving with good reason

Oh

(Solo)



It's two AM

And it all depends

But I hope that it

Yes I hope that

Yes I hope that it never ever ends
Track Name: Banjo Player
I bet you thought I was only in it for the money

I bet you thought I would take it and run

But you know me too well, too well for that

You take off your sweater I will remove your hat



It's all alright

It's all okay

But you're telling me that you don't even

know my name



And it's easy to forget what you never knew

It's harder to go around then to go straight through

You can forget about me, I won't forget about you

Oh oh oh no

I will play my guitar you will play your banjo



I bet you were wondering how long it would take

Why the love we find is not equal to the money we make

I'll walk across the earth I will swim across the oceans

The day will come when there is truth behind that notion



It's all alright

It's all okay

But you're telling me that you don't even

know my name



And it's easy to forget what you never knew

It's harder to go around then to go straight through

You can forget about me, I won't forget about you

Oh oh oh no

I will play my guitar you will play your banjo





The rain is falling on my feet

Yes on my feet

Oh on my feet



And Darkness is our only friend

Darkness is like everything

It comes and goes
Track Name: When You
You told me you ran across the sun

And you weren't even burned when you were done

I understand the language of your gun



You give me one reason to believe

A reason not to rejoice, but to grieve

And I will hand you three reasons for me to leave



When the moon flashes on the waves

And your love is not your saving grace

When you feel for someone but you feel insane

Baby, I do love the way



When I go home I will find a new route

I will listen to the Beatles singing love me do

I just need some time to think things through



I can't hold back what's coming out of my mouth

From the bottom of the ocean to the cushions of this couch

You think you could leave me so down and out





When you finally find your place

And you've won your only race

What do you feel when you look it in the face?

And what do you know?



When you get sick of all the delay

And when you are sick for something, but you can't quite say

Just know baby, he's on his way



I don't want to be

The only one

It hurts and it burns and it comes undone

But I know that time has come





When you lie down in the sand

And your regards you do send

What you feel for someone you will never feel again

Oh but this is not the end
Track Name: Anywhere
It's been too long

Too long to live like this



And I'll be strong if you

Promise me this



Do you remember?

The last time we made amends



Do you remember?

The last word I had to defend



With a zip up coat and a ransom note

She goes to find a man she knows



And it's too late but she don't care

Because she can go anywhere



Oh anywhere



Oh the dark is

Closing in faster than before



You don't know what I

Have got in store



I picked that

Flower, won't you put it in your hair



Don't forget your money

You're gonna need it for the cab fare



With a zip up coat and a ransom note

She goes to find a man she knows



And it's too late but she don't care

Because she can go anywhere



Oh anywhere



So just leave

You're bound to find your way



So just leave

You'll be fine it's gonna be okay


With a zip up coat and a ransom note

She goes to find a man she knows



And it's too late but she don't care

Because she can go anywhere
