    Save Myself
    6:01
    I don’t know why I ever left you
    But I’m sure it had to be a mess
    ‘Cause when I felt it falling around us
    I thought I could only save myself
    Sometimes I wish I could walk away
    And start all over again
    Find a place to hide away and wash away the sins
    Save myself
    Save myself
    Save myself

    Girl In Green
    6:23
    It doesn’t matter what you say
    No it don’t matter how many times you turn away
    And I don’t care what all your so-called friends say
    You’ll never ever change the way that I feel

    We will be anything
    We could be everything you want
    We could be anything
    We will be everything you want

    What do I have to do to make you see the obvious
    ’cause if I deceive you I just deceive myself
    Yeah I have faith but I feel so misunderstood
    Are you what I think you are or just what I think I want ?

    We will be everything
    We will be everything you want
    We will be everything
    We will be anything you want

    Am I your lover or a substitute
    You say time will reveal all the truth
    So I stopped loving you and I started wanting you
    You slip away into your pleasant solitude

    We will be everything
    We could be everything you want
    We will be everything
    We will be everything you want

    It’s all for the girl in green

    What You Want
    4:16
    Woke up from another dream
    With the clouds in my head
    Sat down by the window
    Watched the sunrise burning red

    I guess I’m doing alright now
    But there’s too much time to kill
    I can’t forget you lying there
    so still

    Picture back to another time
    I see you sitting here
    You said ‘would you ever forgive me
    if I chose to disappear?’

    I turned away and closed my eyes
    I didn’t think I could
    If that’s what you want I guess I would
    if that’s what you want I guess I would

    You know I can’t live like everyone else
    nothing ever seems that simple in my head
    feel myself slipping away
    don’t want to wind up helpless in my bed

    This time I want to get out and walk
    but I think I’ll fall

    I can see myself in so many ways
    but I curse myself instead
    was there something I should have done
    something else I could have said?

    you know I tried to change it
    but I can’t forgive you still
    If that’s what you want I guess I will
    If that’s what you want I guess I will

    You know I can’t live like everyone else
    nothing ever comes that simple in my head
    feel myself slipping away
    tired of waking up lonely in my bed

    This time I want to get out and walk
    but I think I’ll fall this time
    I want to get out but I think I’ll fall

    Side of The Road
    6:21
    I pulled over to the side of the road
    I was feeling kind of sad
    I was feeling kind of blue
    I walked across this farmer’s field
    And I looked up to the blue-white sky

    And your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you
    Yeah your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you

    I started singing this song in my head
    Just because the sun was high shining bright
    And I could smell the fresh cut grass
    As I looked up to the blue-white sky

    And your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you
    Yeah your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you
    I’m gonna hold on to you

    I walked across this farmer’s field
    And I looked up into the blue-white sky
    I started singing this song in my head
    Just because the sun was high

    And your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you
    Yeah your eyes they were in my mind
    And I just want to hold on to you
    I’m gonna hold on to you

    I’m gonna hold on to you to you

    Better Off As We Are
    3:29
    We sat around at night and talked about so many things
    Lay on the floor till the morning appeared
    You laughed at me and said I just don’t get it
    You said we should be making plans for getting out of here

    Somebody told me when I was just a little kid
    Don’t follow leaders just think for yourself
    But everybody minds everybody else’s business here
    Why can’t they turn their eyes to somebody else

    Tell me no use thinking
    We could ever be something
    We could rise with the stars
    Better off as we are

    My older brother he left the day he finished school
    Moved down to New York to Washington Square
    He calls me up and says you should come and see me
    Watch the waves of people rolling everywhere

    Tell me no use thinking
    We could ever be something
    We could rise with the stars
    Better off as we are

    Late in the evening I’m up in my room
    Trying to think of nothing, clear away the day
    I lie awake and let my body wander
    Up into the moonlight floating away

    Tell me no use thinking
    We could ever be something
    We could rise with the stars
    Better off as we are

    Sky
    6:01
    Looks like someone let you down
    Told you lies and you believed
    Took you out into their garden
    And walked you through the weeds

    Sky come falling down again
    Sky come falling down again

    Called you up from across the ocean
    In my dreams I hear your voice
    You said I can’t spend my whole life waiting
    It’s time you made your choice

    Sky come falling down again
    Sky come falling down again

    Oh when you win some later on you lose
    It’s hard to tell the difference between the two
    Oh don’t lose your feet
    Don’t let it mess up your sleep
    You never choose

    There is a place down by the river
    When I feel I’m caving in
    I can lie there under the moonlight
    Watch the stars feel the wind

    Sky come falling down again
    Sky come falling down again
    Sky come falling down again
    Sky come falling down again

    Brown-Eyed Dog
    4:52
    Sometimes my flesh entwines
    With the bones of your breath
    A long ride on an endless stretch
    Of abandoned highway
    I wake up and there’s this dog
    Against the slate-gray sky
    One brown, one blue eye
    And there’s this beautiful crack in the pavement
    Where the grass grows tall
    And the wind caresses my face
    And I feel like a ghost ’cause
    I can hear the people
    The passing cars
    But I’m all alone
    I love your crazy heart
    The sacred drum
    With these hands
    I’ll dig a tunnel to the sun
    We’ve got to find a new way
    And it’s got to be true
    It’s got everything to do with you
    We’ve got to find a new way
    And it’s got to be true
    It’s got everything to do with you

    Blew It Again
    5:39
    You can live in the house and I will find
    A little place around the corner
    Trouble comes from the strangest quarters
    It snuck up on us now without a warning

    Every night I hang my head outside into the stars
    It’s a wonder I can even talk at all

    I walk by kids that hang on corners tripping out
    Afraid of what they’ll miss
    Late at night I hear other voices crying out
    I never wanted this

    I played you all my favourite songs
    Catch you when you fall
    You look at me saying that’s not it at all

    Oh my I can’t help wondering why I blew it again
    I let you down
    I watched your tears come splashing all around
    All my life I feel like I’ve been blind
    But the moments that shine
    Are so hard to find

    Hey look those northern lights are dancing
    Come on out and we’ll sit here on the lawn
    We won’t talk we’ll only listen
    Maybe we can stop what’s going on

    Every night we look out on what’s left of all our dreams
    It’s a wonder we still can talk at all

    Oh my I can’t help wondering why
    I blew it again
    I let you down I watched your tears come splashing on the ground
    All my life I feel like I’ve been blind
    But the moments that shine
    Are so hard to find

    Get Through To You
    4:08
    Looks like winter’s never gonna leave this grey town
    I think it’s going to snow all summer
    I think I’ll wait until it gets a little warmer
    Before I try to knock that chip off your shoulder
    I think I’ll wait until it’s warmer

    I just want to get through
    Just want to get through to you
    Just want to get through
    Just want to get through to you
    I wish that I could get through

    Don’t want to stir up those feelings
    I wish you could read my mind ’cause then
    You’d see that I’d never take you for granted
    Even though sometimes it feels like we’re on
    Different planets

    Yeah I want to get through
    Just want to get through to you
    Yeah I just want to get through
    Just want to get through to you
    Get through to
    Get through to you

    Armour
    4:02
    She took everything she owned
    Threw it out in the rain
    Walked away from that life she won’t go back again
    Had enough of people’s lies enough of their blame
    She made a promise to herself she won’t get fooled again

    Don’t know why things come to me and why they disappear
    I only know that living changed when she got here
    I reached out my hand wiped the rain from her face
    The look she gave me stopped me cold held me in my place

    When I look into her eyes growing wild
    What I see is such a wounded child

    No matter what you’re hiding
    What you want to keep inside you
    I am hiding too
    And we’ll take a step somehow
    Lay down your armour now
    And I’ll come to you

    I know a fall is coming but it hasn’t happened yet
    Can’t believe what I keep inside and what I can’t forget
    The sun paints the evening sky and then it’s gone
    I can’t say I can save you but I swear I won’t leave you alone

    Every night I listen to the silence in your heart
    I never want to see you that torn apart

    No matter what you’re hiding
    What you want to keep inside you
    I’ve been hiding too
    And we’ll take a step somehow
    Lay down your armour now
    I’ll come to you
    Come to you

    Train
    3:50
    I was riding on this train
    Looking out the back door on where I had been
    Thinking about the sun and your golden skin
    Your golden skin
    I’m looking back
    Out onto where I’m coming from
    Out into that big white sun
    Out into that big white sun
    Big white sun

    I was feeling kind of strange
    Chasing these tracks to a room by the lake
    I heard your song and it took me away
    I wanted to stay
    I’m looking back
    Out onto where
    I’m coming from
    Out into that big white sun
    Out into that big white sun
    Big white sun

    Flaming Bed
    8:04
    Last night I woke up in a flaming bed
    A flaming bed
    A flaming bed
    I know that you can’t be with me
    Until I start talking some kind of sense
    But nothing makes sense to me now

    Can’t find the thread no place to rest
    And I don’t know what normal means
    Still I grow tired of the same
    Your flame burns pure
    That’s what I fear I see so much
    You make me real I see so much
    From everywhere to nowhere
    From nowhere to here

    Nowhere to here
    Nowhere to here
    Nowhere to here
    To everywhere
    Last night I woke up in a flaming bed
