Hey Now

Sky black and blue
Blue turned to red
It's quiet in the streets now
It's screaming in your head

I ain't a fool
I've got my doubts
Say it doesn't hurt
Doesn't matter anyhow
Anyhow

Saying hey you're bleeding for nothing
It's hard to breathe when you're standing on your own
We'll kill ourself to find freedom
You'll kill yourself to find anything at all

So lock all the doors
And put your child to rest
It's quiet in the streets now
It's screaming in your head
We're passing the time
We're breaking apart
We're damned at the end
We're damned at the start
Blame it on the roses
Blame it on the red
Running out of time
Running out of breath

Saying hey now you're bleeding for nothing
It's hard to breathe when you're standing on your own
We'll kill ourself to find freedom
You'll kill yourself to find anything

You say good-bye
Every day and night
With writing on the walls
Everybody's gonna need somebody
To take our troubles, and our worries, and our problems all away

'Cause, hey you're just bleeding for nothing
It's hard to breathe when you're standing on your own
We'll kill ourself to find freedom
You'll kill yourself to find anything at all

Hey now you're bleeding for nothing
It's hard to breathe when you're standing on your own
We'll kill ourself to find freedom
You'll kill yourself before
You'll kill yourself again

Hey now, hey now, hey now
Right now
Hey now, hey now, hey now
Right now
Hey now, hey now, hey now
Right now

Hey now, hey now




I Still Ain't Over You

Out of luck and out of tune
Half a day and I'm confused
Love may wash away the bruise
But I still ain't over you

Damn the day that I forgot
Came so close and almost lost
It's been one year and fourteen months
But I still ain't over you

Hey, I'm the blood in your veins
I'm a colding rain
Love you hard when it rains
Time, no it ain't all aside
On the truth she lies
Love your tear when you cry

Back and forth and side to side
Right ain't wrong if wrong ain't right
I will love you day and night
'Cause I still ain't over you

Hey, I'm the blood in your veins
I'm a colding rain
Love you hard when it rains
Time, no it ain't all aside
On the truth she lies
Love your tear when you cry

'Cause when the walls come crashing in
When flames come coasting in
Just remember time again
I still ain't over you

Oh hey, I'm the blood in your veins
I'm a colding rain
Love you hard when it rains
Time, no it ain't all aside
'Cause on the truth she lies
Love your tear when you cry




Sweet And Low

Anywhere you go, anyone you meet,
Remember that your eyes can be your enemies,
I said, well hell is so close
And heaven's out of reach
I ain't giving up quite yet,
I've got too much to lose

Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low, and I'll carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, and I'll carry you home

Rain is gonna fall, the sun is gonna shine,
The wind is gonna blow, the water's gonna rise
She said, when the day comes, look into my eyes
No one's giving up quite yet,
We've got too much to lose

Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low, and I'll carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down,

And I'll carry you all the way,
You say you're fine
But you're still young, and out of line
All I need is to turn around,
To make it last, to make it count
You're gonna make the same mistakes
That put my momma in her grave
I don't wanna be alone

Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low, and I'll carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, and I'll carry you home




Twenty Years

Well I've been running from something
Twenty years in my car
Down a road that's leading me nowehere
Yeah we drive through the farmland
No one knows where we're from
Could I kiss you and make you a queen?
Or something in between

Do you want to see
The place where I am free?
Cos in my mind I need it
But you're nowhere near to me

Move to new york city
Take your woman by the hand
Leave her there with your things on the doorstep
And there's no way around it
Could this be our last dance?
So fall asleep with the tv darling
I'll be back again

Do you want to see
The place where I was free?
Cos in my mind I've been there
And there's no one here but me

In the morning it'll find you
Let the light shine away
Down a road that's leading me nowhere
And there's no way around it
Could this be our last dance?
Just fall asleep with the tv darling
I'll be back again
I'll be back again




Meet You There

Climb up on a mountain, just to watch it come down
But sooner or later babe, you're gonna need me around
'Cause you're getting older, there ain't no stopping that
It's a backstabbing world honesty, just lean your head back

The fool in me
It's like a dream, you see
But if the world is right
I'll drive all night
And meet you there someday

Six in the morning, never felt so sweet
Just put on Lucinda baby, and dance with me
I know I'm hard to count on
Forget half what I'm told
You probably only know my voice from
A goddam microphone

It's a waste
A teenage taste of me
But if Daddy cries
Just say goodnight
And I'll come
If I could change
I'd keep away the rain
And the sun would shine every night
And I'll come meet you there someday...




Fire

No it don't come easy
No it don't come fast
Lock me up inside your garden
Take me to the real side

Fire burning me up
Desire taking me so much higher
And leaving me home

They you are in your black dress
Moving slow to the sadness
I could watch you dance for hours
I could take you by my side

Fire burning me up
Desire taking me so much higher
And leaving me

Its like fire turning me on
Desire taking me so much higher
And leaving me home




Either Way, I'll Break Your Heart Someday

All I have are the way things go
Well I don't know
I just don't know
Make up some simple lies
And compromise
How I live

Cuz' either way I'll break your heart someday
But leaving you is the last thing on my mind
So when I call
Baby kiss me slow so I don't forget my way back home
When its cold

Sail away
On a wayward ship
With candy lips in my grip
Cheap perfume
Oh it never lies
It can't surprise
Any good advice

Cuz' either way I'll break your heart someday
But leaving you is the last thing on my mind
So when I call
Baby kiss me slow so I don't forget to make my way back home
When its cold

Well I miss you in the winter
Your friends say I should listen
Can't you see I've loved you all along
Well if America don't like me
You can say I finally
The kind of man who only likes the gun
Shoot anyone, shoot anyone

Cuz' either way I'll break your heart someday
But leaving you is the last thing on my mind
So when I call
Baby kiss me slow so I don't forget my way back home
When its cold




Dust

So go on and tear it up
Black and cold with the dust
'Cause I believe in the Lord
But he don't show up anymore

If you can't trust the wind, who can you trust?
If you can't love sin, who can you love?
If I begin will you let me finish up?
If I fell down would you pick me up?
If I don't drink from a silver cup, like you,
Would you say so long, farewell, and good luck?

If a man can't lie, how can he speak?
If the sun don't rise, would the moon be out of reach?
If I came home, would you get down on your knees?




Rest, Shame, Love

Breaking up with your breakdown
Standing tall in your white gown
You're going nowhere, you're going fast
Slowin' down, but it never lasts
Take your time
Take your time

It's the wrong dream, with the wrong man
With a cold gun, in your own hand
Get it right this time, get it off your mind
Let the summer rain bring rest and shame and love

Carve your name in the black stone
Swear to god he won't let go
If you can't love babe, then you can't hurt
You take the good times, with the worst
Take your time
Take your time

It's the wrong dream, with the wrong man
With a cold gun, in your own hand
Get it right this time, get it off your mind
Let the summer rain bring rest and shame and love

It's the wrong dream, with the wrong man
With a cold gun in your own hand
Get it right this time, get it off your mind
Let the summer rain bring rest and shame and love
Let the summer rain bring rest and shame and love
And love
And love
And love
And love




Where Love Went Wrong

The day is done, and now we're older
The feeling's gone, so now you'll show her
Where love went wrong, on your shoulder

You're all alone, and you can't take it
You're just too tired to suffocate it
And all along we'll just fake it

But I tried
I tried, goodbye

You try to breathe, you try to save it
But it marks your skin, until they break it
Well could you call when
They're taking all that you left for me
