The Flood

Here comes the flood again

Watch it fall from the sky

Feel it soak through my flesh and my blood

Feel it burn in my eyes

When I say how much more can I take?

I know the water’s rising up, watch the waves crest and break

And though I’ve made not but a sound

I fear that I may drown

I fear that I may drown

Here comes the wind again

Cold that cuts to the bone

Pack my bags and I’ll head out the door

Here I am on my own

When I say how much more can I stand?

I know my walls are falling down; I left the rocks and chose the sand

And though I’ve no one left to blame

Still, I cursed your name

I cursed your name

So now the end

What I’ve been running from

Though I’ve tried I cannot lift my head

Oh, what have I become?

When I say how much more can I take?

I know my time is running short, I am broken and I’ll break

And though I’ve worn myself so thin

I’m coming home again

And though I do not know my heart

Well, I know myself down to my bones, but if my bones should come apart

Then I’ll have nothing left to give

But if you take me in,

I’m coming home again

If you take me in

I’m coming home again

(back to top)

 

Falling

When it all starts coming

When it all starts crumbling down

As the water through the canyon it weaves and wanders all around

I will take the least resistance

I will keep my eyes on the ground

It’s been a while since we’ve spoken

Still I haven’t got the words right now

I’m falling for answers to questions that I cannot face

The reason I always look away

In the middle of this moment

If we should rise and fall again

If uncertainty surrounds you

And you cannot seem to catch your breath

Oh, remember our intentions

How we’d lift our eyes and hope for the best

We are weathered, we are broken

But we haven’t reached the end yet

(back to top)

 

Everything Unsaid

For everything unsaid there is a flourish of my pride

It is deep and dark and wide

And I can’t tell the weeds from vines

And if I had the strength, I’d move the mountains in my mind

But it’s taking all my time just to start to realize

That I’m not the man I’d hoped to be

And though I’m not alone, I still feel so lonely

Come Monday I’ve forgotten all the promises you said

All your holy words in red

Wreathed in guilt and golden thread

And If I had the strength to be who others say I am

I wouldn’t look into my eyes and see the shadow of a man

Well I’m not who they say I have become

For I know the things I’ve said wont compare with what I’ve done

Now all of these monstrosities are choices I have made

And they will not go away,

I’ve made my bed and here I lay

And is there still forgiveness if we know what we have done?

Woe, to every single one who spared the rod and blamed the son

Well it’s not just the day that needs the night

Seems to me it’s in the darkness we can finally see the light

(back to top)

 

Living & Dying

Watch as the world falls away, here we are lying

At sunrise the moon starts to wane

Living and dying

And the oceans echo out their deep refrain

And the river answers, “I’ll make you whole again”

Well, come away, come away, there’s no use staying

You’ve been living just for today

But tomorrow’s coming

And the lightning strikes and breaks apart the night

But the sparks will burn out long before they light

Well the teeth cut the truth from our mouths

Here we are lying

(back to top)

 

Let It Go

Well I’ve loved, I’ve lost, but I still can’t find

The way to the middle of my heart

And I open my eyes and I don’t know why

But I feel so old

You don’t know what you’ve got but you’ve got to let it go

Let it go

Let it go

Let it go, I know.

You don’t know what you’ve got but you’ve got to let it go.

Well the sun will set on my sins tonight

But the weight’s been lifted off my heart

And is it all that much just for me to ask that the truth be told?

You don’t know what you’ve got but you’ve got to let it go

(back to top)

 

Last Train Home

I have tried my best to find you through the fields and forest floors

I have waited in the silence for knocks upon the door

I have stumbled through the alleys in a place I did not know

If it’s all the same to you love, I will take the last train home

I have cursed you in the morning, I have laid awake at night

I have begged for your forgiveness, to avoid a fight

I have held on to my anger, watched the sun set on my pride

If it’s all the same to you love, leave and pass me by Oh, oh

Honey don’t you listen though the waves beneath us roll

Fills the air around us, let it go

Honey hear the silence, oh be still that you may know

You’re not on your own

It was as if in a nightmare, hoping this would disappear

There was no one else around me, as it became clear

There is nothing worse I know of then to spend our lives alone

If it’s all the same to you love, take the last train home

If it’s all the same to you love, take the last train home

If it’s all the same to you love

(back to top)

 

Runs & Winds

 

I’m sitting by the river let the water come and wash away my fear

I listen to the water all the harmonies that fall upon my ear

Let my eyes see through illusions

Let my heart be wild and free

Let the truth come down from the mountain

As the river runs and winds its way to me

I wrestle with my demons, with my weakness, with my insecurity

And I know they come in seasons, though it’s clearer to me now, they wont leave

Let my hands be used for lifting

Let my lips speak naught but truth

Let my feet be swift and certain,

As I walk along this path searching for you

Let my eyes see through illusions

Let my heart be wild and free

Let the truth come down from the mountains

As the river runs and winds

The river runs and winds

As the river runs and winds it’s way to me

(back to top)

 

In Deepest Blue

Go slow my dear, and feel no fear

You’re not alone

Speak soft to me, and let me be

Your warmth in cold

Well, if that’s the answer that you’ve been looking for

And you know it’s true

Then, oh, take the reigns begin steering this again

Through deepest blue

As days go by, doesn’t matter what you’ve hoped for

As long as hopes alive

Days go by

It always stays the same, the same

We know not why

Everyone of us becomes jaded or mistrusts

Yet we long for lies

Well, if there’s an answer then I’m still looking for

To rest in truth

And, though storms will rage, it’s underneath the waves

In deepest blue

And days go by, doesn’t matter if we made it but that we’ve tried

Days go by

(back to top)

 

Come Away

Come away with me, to the outside of what I believe

Take it slow and fill me again I want to believe

It’s a long way back from hope to the hopeless I will leave this all behind

And in that ebb and flow of pity to patience I will let your heart be my guide

Come and burn me down, set a fire in my heart and scorch the ground

Wipe my tears and dry them again, I will be found

It’s a long way back from fate to the faithful I’ve got nowhere left to fall

And I don’t feel the same for the beautiful or broken I’ve been numb for fall too long

It’s a long way back from here to the other side I’ve got no one I can call

And I remember days before love gave me nothing I will wait for you to say

Come away

(back to top)

 

Instrumental

Gone

 

It’s a long and lonely road

When you are on your own, all by yourself

The emptiness that lays deep within your bones

To love somebody else

Cause when you’re gone, lord knows, you’ll be gone

When you’re gone, oh, you’ll be gone

I am not a stranger to the dark or to the cold I know them well

All the pride hidden deep inside my soul

Oh, to be somebody else

But when I’m gone, lord knows, I’ll be gone

When I’m gone, oh I’ll be

(back to top)

 

Tonight

 

In the hour of my confession when no one else can see

In my deepest of depression, do you know me?

When the light was on the surface before the land was born

There was beauty in the darkness, no soul had been torn

But tonight, if I slip I fall and this cannot be

Oh tonight, if I should call out, would you catch me?

No man is an island, but maybe some are stones.

And the water wears them down until they are alone

But tonight If I start to sink, if I cannot swim

Oh tonight, If I start to drown, would you jump in?

12) Where the Mountain Meets the Valley

Do Not Let Me Go

There are moments in this life when you can’t fake it.

There are moments I would walk another road.

There was something in the broken way you said it

Singing, “Please, oh God, do not let me go.”

 

From the moment I was born I have been dying.

Yeah, we walk along towards the great unknown.

Is it love if I have given up on trying?

Singing, “Oh my God, don’t leave me alone.”

Singing, “Please, oh God, do not let me go.”

Oh, Oh, Oh

If you’re up there could you lift my heavy burden?

‘Cause I cannot seem to make this on my own.

Though I’m not sure you can hear me I’m still begging.

Singing, “Oh my god, don’t leave me alone.”

Singing, “Please, oh God, do not let me go.”

(back to top)

 

Hallelujah

Love break me down

Pick me up off the ground,

Oh, let me out from where I have gone.

Unlock my heart

I don’t know where to start

Love break me down, and take me back home.

Look at the clouds

As the rain falls down

Oh, wash away my sorrow and pain.

And now I can see

The lost look a lot like me

From dust I was born, and dust I shall be.

 

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

 

All that I’ve done

All that I should have done

All I’ve become, and all I should be.

Well, I’ll let you down

I’ve not quite figured out

What I will say, when death’s at my door.

But, Hallelujah

Hallelujah

You were not there on my loneliest day.

And I don’t understand now, why it happens that way.

But, Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

(back to top)

 

What Have I Done?

I have surrendered my hopes, my dreams.

For all of these things, they are yours.

Whatever they bring, they are yours.

I don’t remember what it was like

to look in your eyes, and feel loved.

To feel no surprise for it was enough.

What have I done? What have I done?

What have I done? What have I done?

Oh…

Oh…

And I have surrendered my hopes, my dreams.

And all of these things, they are yours.

Whatever they bring, they are yours.

But what have I done? What have I done?

What have I done? What have I done?

Oh…

Oh…

(back to top)

 

 

Wish You Well

Oh my love I hold you near.

If only I was unafraid of all my fear.

I wish I did not have to go

But I’ve already compromised more than you know.

When the taste of love has gone stale.

What you’re dreaming of, you wont tell.

And if you’ll soon be gone, then I’ll wish you well.

I wish you well.

Oh my heart it’s still the same.

Yeah, a little older now, but it won’t change.

There is love left in me still

Though I may not feel it now, someday I will.

 

But it seemed so real to me then.

Now it’s gone, it has faded again.

For the love you scorn, there will be an end.

Here it comes again.

(back to top)

 

 

Time Alone

Time alone can’t save you, if that’s what you’re waiting for.

It’s the end of all your battles as you’re walking out the door.

And you wear that face so bravely and gather up your clothes

And you say you have to go.

And you say you have to go.

 

Time alone can waste you, if it’s where you place your hope

With all my uphill struggles, how long could you cope?

And you wear that face so bravely and stand out in the rain

But honey, I take all the blame.

Honey, I take all the blame.

 

Time, they say, can heal you. Though, that’s harder to believe

When you meet the broken hearted and see what it meant to leave.

And with all my misconceptions of what it takes to change

I guess I’ll end up just the same.

I guess I’ll end up just the same.

(back to top)

 

The Mountain

It’s funny now you’ve gone

All the words have come.

But if I reach the end,

before I’m done

May I be the only one

To watch it in the wind,

What may be and what has been.

For though the rain will fall

Down upon us all,

The sun will come again.

From the mountaintop

Where my sorrow always stops

I will see you there,

To let go of your cares

Carried off in the raindrops.

(back to top)

 

 

I Wish I Was

Oh, Darlin, it’s been so long.

Throw on your old self, cause I’ve seen what’s going on.

Oh, Darlin, what are you dreaming of?

Well, I was much younger then and you were in love.

 

And I said oh, oh, oh, I wish I was.

I cried, oh, oh, oh, I wish I was.

 

Time keeps on changing, you lose those you love.

Hearts keep on breaking, with the memories of

the pain of tomorrow that you don’t know yet.

The lonesome forgotten people you’ve met.

They say oh, oh, oh, I wish I was.

They cry oh, oh, oh, I wish I was.

You said, oh, oh, oh, I wish I was.

You said, oh, oh, oh, I wish I was.

I wish I was.

I cried, oh, oh, oh, I wish I was.

(back to top)

 

First Light

Am I not what you want?

Then who should I be,

If I’m not what you want?

Is there more inside?

Or does what meets the eye, say it all?

Who should I be?

Who should I be?

Who should I be?

At the first light of dawn, I’ll say goodbye.

It’s not right it’s not wrong, so then should I

have known all along?

Well if it matters I tried.

 

Who should I be?

Who should I be?

Who should I be?

At the first light of dawn, I’ll say goodbye

It’s not right it’s not wrong, so then should I

Have known all along?

Well if it matters I tried.

If it matters I tried.

Nowhere Left To Go

So never say it’s unfair

confidence is not there

For everything I know is everything I’ve sown.

Father give me freedom, providence and wisdom

For when I am alone, when I am alone.

I guess you caught me dreaming,

Though all of your deceiving

Was water to my soul, underneath it all

I’ve never really known how all of this would work out

With nowhere left to go, nowhere left to go.

So where am I meant to wander now?

If you were there then you’ve left without a sound

and I was lost, I’m not sure I was ever found

By you.

 

So never say it’s unfair

Shelter From The Storm

Twas in another lifetime one of toil and blood

when blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud

I came in from the wilderness a creature void of form

“Come in” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

“Come in” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

 

And if I pass this way again you can rest assured

I’ll always do my best for you on that I give my word

In a world of steal-eyed death and men fighting to be warm

“Come in” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

“Come in” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

Not a word was spoke between us there was little risk involved

Everything up until that point had been left unresolved

Try imagining a place that is always safe and warm

“Come in” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

“Come in” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm.”

“Come in, I will give you shelter from the storm.”

(back to top)

 

 

Have You Heard?

You have come along,

Provided thus far for yourself a song

That will guide you in health.

You don’t know this heartbreaking hell

That I know, but I promise you will.

You have strung along

Your thoughts on the side.

You have laid awake at night

And you’ve cried, “It’s not fair.”

But then tell me, what is?

If he’s there, well then why’s there all this?

Have you heard what they are calling you now?

Have you seen all the unsaid and somehow

Should I stand up for a God I can’t feel with my hands

If I long for what’s real?

And if we could see

The deeds that we’ve done

We would stand ashamed

And know we’ve not won.

Who are we to expect any more, when we lie

And then walk out the door?

Have you heard what they are calling you now?

Have you seen all the unsaid and somehow

Should I stand up for a God I can’t feel

With my hands if I long for what’s real?

Have you heard what they are calling you now?

Have you seen all the unsaid and somehow

Should I stand up for a God I can’t feel

With my hands if I long for what’s real?

Where The Mountain Meets The Valley

Where the mountain meets the valley

Where the river meets the sea, I will run.

Where the fields begin to flower

As the rain waters the seeds, I will run.

Time is not your friend, you will see.

For all that’s young shall end, eventually.

 

When the winter rains are falling

And the riverbeds will swell, I will run

And when all that you have hoped for

And all that you have loved, comes undone.

When faith in what you see is not enough.

Don’t say that you believe, but do not love.

When faith in what you see is not enough.

Don’t say that you believe, but do not love

When faith in what you see is not enough.

Don’t say that you believe, but do not love.

Don’t say you believe, but do not love.

Don’t say you believe, but do not love.

4) Who Am I?

5) We Have Seen

6) If I Was A Better Man



Cold Wind

Everything that I have said

There are moments I regret

In your time of hope and hollowness, don’t give up yet.

Everything that I have known

All the nights spent on my own

If I get this wrong and off you go, then I am alone.

But when that cold wind comes

If all you do is undone,

And you don’t understand

I will wait for you.

When I don’t know what to do

When I’m searching for the truth

And we don’t talk as much as we used to, I miss you

But when that cold wind comes

If all you do is undone

And you don’t understand

I will wait for you.

Little Sparrow

Little sparrow sing your song

All day long.

Through the summer and the fall

When winter calls,

Who will write down what you sing

When the winter turns to spring?

Who will cast the first stone at me for what I’ve done

To the least of these?

Little robin rest your head

The sun is dead.

From the shelter of your tree

May you be

Safe and warm when you are cold.

Through the night your story’s told

To the lost and the lonely of souls who search for love

But still grow old.

And who will write down what you sing

When the winter turns to spring?

Who will cast the first stone at me for what I’ve done

Who Am I?
Forget what you thought

And all that you want

And all that you said

Went straight to my head.

Forget what you heard

And all that we were

And if I could say

What it means to me

What it means to me

But who am I that I should gain?

If it was given free, then why do I complain?

Who am I that I should boast?

Though I did hold you close.

Though I did hold you close.

Forget what we thought

And all that we want

And all that we’ve said

About what this meant

About what this meant

But who am I to dream so high?

If I have learned one thing, it’s that all these dreams die.

Who am I that I should boast?

Though I did love you most of the time.

Yeah, I did love you most of the time.

But who am I that I should gain?

If it was given free then why do I complain?

Who am I that I should boast?

We Have Seen
No I’m not in line to get to heaven

I don’t know what I’d find.

No I’m not in a rush to meet my maker

And if I was would he be kind?

We have seen too much

We have built our hope on a crutch

We have broken wings

We have learned that we don’t know everything

Yeah

No I’m not thinking about forever

I can’t get past today.

And no I’m not going to join you in the river

With the sins of yesterday.

We have seen enough

The truth is there but we don’t care enough to love

We have broken wings

We have learned that we don’t know everything

We have broken hearts

Though it hurts it’s no excuse not to start

We have got to see

That what we do is what becomes history.

If I Was A Better Man
If I was a letter man

I would write this all to you

Part of me would understand

Part of me would be confused.

Did you know me better then?

And did I ever know you?

What else do you have to say?

What else do I have to do?

When someone’s got something on their mind,

There’s not much that you can do.

Everyone’s got problems on the side,

We could help each other through.

If I was a better man

I would stay and work this through

I would make it all okay and see it from your point of view

Do you want to start again?

Did you think of something new?

What else do I have to say?

What else do I have to do?

When someone’s got something on their mind

There’s not much that you can do

Everyone’s got problems on the side

We could help each other through.

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Let your heart be light

From now on, our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Make the Yule tide gay

From now on, our troubles will be miles away

Here we are, as in olden days

Happy golden days, with you

Faithful friends who are dear to us

Gather near to us, once more

Through the years, we all will be together

If the fates allow

Hang a shiny star upon the highest bough

And have yourself a merry little Christmas

Oh have yourself, a merry little Christmas now
