Track Name: Gold and Rose
GOLD AND ROSE
It's the same old song
It goes on and on inside of me
Right or wrong it goes on and on inside of me

I've been down going round and round inside of me
since you found someone to wear your crown
The way the sun is gold and rose

In this salty dawn I'm thinking why go on
So hard to see but
I'll be strong I'll go on and on
The way the sun is gold and rose behind the clouds
Track Name: Getting Stronger
GETTING STRONGER
I'm wrapped up but I'm waiting to unwind
Yes, patience is a virtue but who's got time
But understand I'm more than half a man
It's just that I'm not whole yet but

I'm getting stronger
I'm getting stronger every day
I've got an itch that I can't scratch
A bird that I can't catch
And I want you to tell me
Everything you left behind

Here's my book: it was written from the heart
And all those empty chapters, well they're just a start
But there's a catch: a joke on every page
And I'm so tired of laughing but

I'm getting stronger
I'm getting stronger every day
I've got a fish and it won't bite
A match and it won't light
And I want you to tell me
Everything you left behind

All this time I was waiting for the gun
But I took a look around and I'm not the only one
So who's to say the winner wins the race
I am running to you and

I'm getting stronger
I'm getting stronger every day
I've got a car but it won't start
A dog but she won't bark
And I want you to tell me
Everything you left behind
Track Name: So Gone
SO GONE
Endless highway... small mirage
I lost my way... old garage
Ghost town Sunday... a radio
Black birds flying... I turned to go
It seems to me

I'm gone so long
It seems to me
so gone, so long

Old blue pickup... just alive
Old man driving... he pulls in slow, he stops beside me
He gets out crying... he slams the door, he wipes his hands
He sees me watching... he shakes his head, he says to me
I'm gone so long
He says to me
So gone, so long

Once she left me, so I left her
Seems like I been gone forever
Look at me here, eighty three years
Seems like I been gone forever.

Endless highway... I count the miles, I count the stars
Spinning slowly... it seems so far, it seems to me

I'm gone so long
It seems to me
So gone, so long
Track Name: Hidden
HIDDEN
Take the worst and make it better
Take the first and then another step and then look back to see
There's the road that you have traveled and you've come so close to me

Would you say that we were wrong?

Looking out the window at the sun and where it used to be
There's a willow by the highway and it does not weep for me

Would you say that we were wrong?

Take all of what's mine
Take everything this time
Would you say that you were strong?
See how far this goes
See what you don't know
Would you say that this is done?
I've run out of track
I've been there and back
Would you say that we were wrong?

I am drifting on my pillow like a boat out on the sea
Jacob's climbing up his ladder and he's reaching back for me

Would you say that we were wrong?

Take all of what's mine
Take everything this time
Would you say that you were strong?
See how far this goes
See what you don't know
Would you say that this is done?
I've run off the track
I've been there and back
Would you say I went along?
Yes we have the knack
We throw it all out back
Would you say that we were wrong?
Track Name: A Little Thing
A LITTLE THING
You miss a little thing; you never know
Love's such a little thing, but you will not let it grow
You live remembering what comes and goes
Wind on a gentle wing and the earth so far below
Believe in what you feel; this much I know.
And honor what is real; light a candle as you go.
Track Name: Worlds Apart
WORLDS APART
You broke my heart
I broke yours
We are worlds apart
Mine and yours
Not that much to say
Less to do
I've gone far away
Without you

You say that I'm no fun
You say that I'm no good
You say we aren't that much anymore
I guess I knew you would
And you might be right
And you might be wrong

You say that I'm no fun
You say that I'm no good
You say we aren't that much anymore
I guess I knew you would
And you might be right
And you might be wrong

I know what's best for me
I don't care what's best for you

You say that I'm no fun
You say that I'm no good
You say we aren't that much anymore
I guess I knew you would
And you might be right
And you might be wrong
Track Name: Wait a While
WAIT A WHILE
Making tracks the other way
Said all I have to say today
No harm done but something lost
What you tried to get across
I'll wait a while
I'll wait a while
Too late or much too early bound
A night with no one else around
Violence in the parking lot
Not trapped but surely feeling caught
I'll wait a while
I'll wait a while
On the floor and in the bed
A thousand miners in my head
Toward the dawn I heard you move
What you love is what you fear to lose
I'll wait a while
I'll wait a while
Flying in the afternoon
Whatever comes it comes too soon
Breathing in our little room
You and me and the eighth of June
Track Name: Unhappy Hour
UNHAPPY HOUR

Imagine after it's done
Another two become one and one more again
It's the end of the start and the start of the end
All the saints in a row
All the sins that they know
Well, they'll never know mine
I'll be yours in a while
And then you'll be mine
The unhappy hour
When secrets come out
We're loving our doubts

Everything that lives and everything that dies one day
Everything that comes and everything that goes away

Take a look at the time
You know it's too late to tell
What's yours and what's mine
We made this ourselves
And it fits just fine
God's mercy, too
The Savior's been saved
And I will be, too

If there's a way to believe
Tell me how and then I will know
If there's a way to be free
Then darlin' tell me, tell me and there we will go

Everything that lives and everything that dies one day
Everything that comes and everything that goes away
Track Name: Save Me
SAVE ME
I know where I am: right here where I stand
Only yesterday I had lost my way

I was going round and round, didn't dare to make a sound
I would come and then be gone, never really did belong
Couldn't tell if you were right or I was wrong all along
And I said "Save me, save me, save me".

Now I can begin; I'll start right at the end.
Now I won't pretend everyone's my friend.
I was going round and round, didn't dare to make a sound
I was walking on a wire, every step a little higher.
I kept on 'til I surrendered all desire to be free
And I said "Save me, save me, save me".

I would come and then be gone, never really did belong
Couldn't tell if you were right or I was wrong all along
And I said "Save me, save me, save me".

If I were king then who would sing?
The birds at night and a golden ring.
If you were queen who would go between
The black of night and a shadow's dream?
Track Name: The Hardest Part
THE HARDEST PART
The world drives on like nothing's wrong
One less dear soul, one more drop of rain
I can't console you now or mend your heart
Some day we come to the hardest part

It feels like a trick or a broken rule
The lock's last click or a slip in the deepest pool
If tears were cash we'd buy her back
Someday we come to the hardest part

And there's nowhere left for you to turn
And all I know is that I have so much left to learn
And now it's time to start
Some day we come to the hardest part

I cut the knot, I loose the rope
It's not that much, but it feels so much like hope
Lay down your arms and sing to me
Some day we come to the hardest part
Track Name: Beginning to Believe
BEGINNING TO BELIEVE
Sometimes on winter nights in dreams I see
Your face is halfway turned away from me
I hear your voice inside a song so sweet

But the world is strange now and
We're both strangers and
The more things change the more they
Stay the same

And I know things aren't always what they seem
And I'll say you're another one
And I know nobody has an easy road
And I'll say I'm the lucky one
And I'll say this world ain't doing much for me
But I know there's another one
And I see there's no reason left to leave
And I'll say I'm beginning to believe
Track Name: Over Now
OVER NOW
I've had a memory for ten years or more
It was nearly September and we were so sure
I found a suit it was woven so fine
You wore the pearls that you bought for a dime

And I feel much older now
Like I travel too heavy and I'm weighing me down

Now misery loves company but here two's a crowd
I'm thinking of something I can't say out loud
If I'm right or I'm wrong I'll let you be the judge
If I'm guilty I'm guilty of loving you too much

And it feels much colder now
The nights are much longer and the sun's not so proud
And it all feels over now
It's the change of the season that does it somehow
And it all feels over now

But when the phone rings I move too fast
Like my first word might be my last
Track Name: Such a Sunny Day
SUCH A SUNNY DAY
Everybody's feeling happy, it's such a sunny day
Everybody's looking snappy and very up to date
I was talking to your brother when he called your name
First one thing and then another, it always starts the same
And there's so much to learn
One more bridge to burn
And there's time to take my time

I'm in tune with something good

It's such a sunny day and everything you say
Makes me feel so fine like you can read my mind

The way the water makes reflections all around your face
The way the shadows change direction while the music plays
And there's so much to learn
The big wheel will turn
And there's time to take my time

I'm in tune with something good

It's such a sunny day and everything you say
Makes me feel so fine like you can read my mind

The way the corners hold the shadows as the sun goes down
The way the mists will fill the meadows as we walk to town
There's so much to learn
One more bridge to burn

And there's time to take my time

It's such a sunny day and everything you say
Makes me feel so fine like you can read my mind

Everybody's feeling happy
It's such a sunny day
