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

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

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

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?

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.

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

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

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

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?

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

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

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

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
