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
