    3:32
    I’ve been walking hours today
    Trying to sort all the things I have to say
    We’ve been changing shifting with the light
    Stumbling through the daytime and fading in the night

    Come on over talk to me dear
    There’s nothing else I’m thinking about
    Than you being here I write you letters
    More than just a few
    I leave them lying open on the table for you

    Now I know for the first time true
    All of the ways I’ve been lying to you
    It’s not that I don’t think we can open up in time
    It’s just that I’m afraid of what we’ll find

    I watch you creeping leaving with the dawn
    Hoping I don’t wake up now your cover is gone
    But it makes no difference anything you do
    Something keeps me coming back to get closer to you

    Now I know for the first time true
    All of the ways I’ve been lying to you
    It’s not that I don’t think we can open up in time
    It’s just that I’m afraid of what we’ll find
    It’s only I’m afraid of what we’ll find

    The Seeker
    3:46
    You were the seeker
    Then you found there’s nothing to find
    It’ll all come down to you in its own good time
    No one’s the older
    No one’s the wiser
    No one cares

    When every step takes you from nowhere
    Going from somewhere to here

    Your quiet eyes almost vacant
    There’s no need to explain
    The fine line between stealing and giving
    In the landscape of the saint

    You were the dreamer
    Who got lost in your escape
    When beauty became a prison
    You found your freedom in the mundane

    So when will I see what you see
    You say it’s got nothing to do with being worthy
    When will I see what you see

    When you’ve gone and lost
    What you thought you never had
    And you’re numb with the fear
    That it’s never coming back

    It makes no difference
    It’s gonna be what it’s gonna be
    Sometimes the purest gold comes from
    The hands of a thief

    So when will I see what you see
    You say it’s got noting to do with being worthy
    When will I see what you see
    When will I see what you see

    Begging You To Let Me In
    3:29
    Sometimes you move too slow
    Think you see it coming then bang down you go
    Then you’re staring back up at a jealous man
    Who’s out hunting trouble and trouble was holding your hand

    Oh I’ve made mistakes
    But I’ve paid for all the trouble I’ve made
    All I want to do is get back to
    The way that we used to be

    Alright I want you to know
    I went down hard and I came back slow
    But I’m on my feet again
    And I’m begging you to let me in
    I’m begging you to let me in

    Here comes Chris with his hundred watt grin
    Waving his arms and waiting for the fun to begin
    We’re downtown tripping not doing too much
    Just weaving our way through the traffic when the sun comes up

    Oh I’ve made a mess
    And I know it’s just my carelessness
    All my life is falling apart
    I’ve got to walk away

    Alright I want you to know
    I went down hard and I came back slow
    But I’m on my feet again
    And I’m begging you to let me in
    I’m begging you to let me in

    Oh I made you cry
    And I’m ashamed of that I can’t deny
    All I want to do is get back to
    The way that we used to be

    Alright I want you to know
    I went down hard and I came back slow
    But I’m on my feet again
    And I’m begging you to let me in

    I’m begging you to let me in
    I’m begging you to let me in
    I’m begging you to let me in

    Bitter Fruit
    3:47
    I have made so many mistakes
    That now I live on a street called shame
    But the sins are the sweetest part
    Now no one’s left to blame

    And I found out that I have a taste
    For the bitter fruit of life

    All through this night
    A cold wind blows
    The choices are made
    The stories are told
    But your memory lingers on my breath
    Like a song that burns in my soul

    And I found out that I have a taste
    For the bitter fruit of life

    Can you hear me now
    I’m calling to you
    Can you hear me now
    I’m calling to you
    Yes I’m calling to you

    Somebody Waits
    3:58
    Now I think I know why
    You sounded so strange on the telephone
    It’s hard when you discover
    What keeps you going keeps you all alone

    Dreams so real you thought the smoke might never clear
    Now you hide it all behind endless cigarettes and tears

    Somebody waits for the time I know will never come
    You get yourself so high
    Then you fall down feeling blue
    One day you’ll wake up and realize you’ve had enough
    There’s a thousand shining moments
    Waiting just to happen to you

    Wait until you’re stronger
    There’s no sense leaving when you’re down so low
    Well it takes the heart a little longer
    To see the point in finally letting go

    You lose your touch out there standing in the rain
    When it’s all too much you feel like slipping down again

    Somebody waits for the time I know will never come
    You get yourself so high
    Then you fall down feeling blue
    One day you’ll wake up and realize you’ve had enough
    There’s a thousand shining moments
    Waiting just to happen to you

    Somebody waits for the time I know will never come
    You get yourself so high
    Then you fall down feeling blue
    One day you’ll wake up and realize you’ve had enough
    There’s a thousand shining moments
    Waiting just to happen to you

    Andrea
    4:41
    Earlier tonight I got a little scared
    I thought that I had failed
    I closed my eyes bowed my head and prayed
    I saw that all and everyone were one
    Never knowing if I’m lost
    Never knowing if I’m found
    Chasing that long dark spiral
    Going down and down
    And down
    And down

    Andrea
    I’m so happy that you called
    Just to hear your voice
    Helped dissolve
    The paranoia
    Until the drugs wore off
    I think the reason why
    You’re so high
    Is that you know the truth
    I see it in your smile

    Your gentle eyes
    And your hollow tooth
    Where some might despair
    You find a way to celebrate
    And you say you can see through me
    Just like I can see through you
    You see through me

    Andrea
    I’m so happy that you called
    Just to hear your voice
    Helped dissolve
    The paranoia
    Until the drugs wore off

    Andrea you are not alone here
    You must be everywhere
    Like any saviour might be
    At least a saviour to me

    Sad Nights
    5:00
    I walked you to the corner we stood beside the bus
    And the tears rolled down our faces as the driver stared at us
    Typical summer that time of year
    When you go back to Toronto and I stay here

    And I’ll miss the way you wake up
    And the way that you sigh
    And I’ll miss the way you turn your head away when you cry
    I don’t think this time will fly

    Here comes the sad nights again
    Here comes the sad nights again

    Round about midnight when it’s still too hot to think
    We’ll go back down to the neighborhood and get ourselves a drink
    Everyday working not getting far
    You know this town ain’t much for starting up it’s only made for stars

    Later when I’m walking
    Underneath the starless sky
    There’s a couple in the doorway and I think I hear them cry
    But they turn their heads when I go by

    Here comes the sad nights again
    Here comes the sad nights again

    Last days of summer San Gennaro Feast
    There’s much hanging in the air and dancing in the streets
    People line the corners and they stand beside the fires
    And I’m watching from my window as the sparks go by

    Somewhere there’s a gunshot
    People scatter everywhere
    But it happens everyday so there’s still laughter in the air
    And as I lay down I wish you were here

    Here comes the sad nights again
    Here comes the sad nights again

    This Road
    4:20
    Driving home after the show
    Listening to the radio
    Speaker rattles
    Driver side door
    And Jane sings a song about
    That old tin drum
    Banging on the shore

    There’s a tear in my heart
    Thinking of so many friends
    Some I just left
    Some I’ll never see again

    I’ll be home in just a few hours’ time
    But for now I love the coffee
    And exploding stars
    And the fat moon shining on the passing cars
    And this road, this road
    It goes on like a dream
    On like a dream

    It’s all I can do to keep my hands on the wheel
    Cause I’ve forgotten what is real
    And I’m blinded by the snow
    And the radio’s glow

    Caffeine spills into my eyes
    I feel like I could drive all night
    Cause this highway
    Is just a smile
    On the hand of god
    So I’ll abide
    On this road, this road
    It goes on like a dream

    It’s all I can do to keep my hands on the wheel
    Cause I’ve forgotten what is real
    And I’m blinded by the snow
    And the radio’s glow

    The Days In Between
    3:31
    Then there are the days in between
    When everything seems hollow and mean
    Don’t want to move I just want to forget
    Smoke another cigarette and go back to bed
    These are the days in between

    So I took a ride down to the end of the line
    For no good reason
    Just looking for a place to hide
    So burnt out I can’t explain
    Just stumbling around from day to day
    These are the days in between

    And I was happy for a while
    But then I started chasing your stone cold heart
    Yeah I was happy for awhile
    But then everything started falling apart

    Seven times down
    Eight times up
    You get lost awhile
    And you feel like giving up
    Watching it all go to hell
    Living underneath a bad spell
    These are the days in between

    And I was happy for a while
    But then I started chasing your stone cold heart
    Yeah I was happy for awhile
    But then everything started falling apart

    Always Getting Better
    3:59
    Yeah there were times
    When I was lonely
    And I lay here like a ghost
    Upon my bed
    I never thought about my friends
    I never called up anyone
    I was happy hiding out
    Inside my head
    But then you came along
    And loved me all up

    First you calmed me down
    And then you took my hand
    And as we lay under the sky
    And watched the planes go by
    I knew I’d never be
    The same again

    Slow down I want to go with you
    Can’t we wait here awhile
    And I’ll watch you smile
    And we’ll hide away
    And let all the world go by

    No more reasons why
    We sit and count
    The tears we cry
    Always getting better
    Always getting better
    Leave the lonely days
    Close your eyes
    Let them drift away
    Always getting better
    Always getting better

    I have thought about your leaving
    For a long time now
    And I guess that in the end
    I’ll be right
    But the blackness of your hair
    The way your smile hits me
    Everywhere
    These are the things
    That come to me at night

    Slow down I want to go with you
    Can’t we wait here awhile
    And I’ll watch you smile
    Come pouring in
    As we let all the world go by

    No more reason why
    We sit and
    Count the tears we cry
    Always getting better
    Always getting better
    Leave the lonely days
    Close your eyes
    Let them drift away
    Always getting better
    Always getting better
    Lie down again watch
    Moonlight streaming in
    Always getting better
    Always getting better

    Rage
    6:00
    Now that we’re wasted
    Talking disconnected
    I see that wildness in your eyes
    Proud and hollow
    Like there’s no tomorrow
    You know you scare me sometimes

    Is it fear or courage
    That makes a man
    Live so close to the edge
    He finds no comfort in the other
    Nothing in this world is
    Any use to you

    Except these songs you sing
    Into my drunken head
    Above this barroom sorrow
    And I know you won’t remember
    A word of this tomorrow

    When will you rage again
    Or is it enough
    Just getting out of your head
    Night after night
    Or are you running scared
    Or you just don’t care

    Or are you waiting for
    That one high and holy sign
    To shine a light on you
    And pull you through
    To the silent true

    You say you’re gonna put your
    Old band back together again
    Just got to find a drummer
    Who understands
    We sit in the corner
    People stop to say hi
    You say fuck off and die
    And I feel like the lucky one

    Six pints into this night
    And you’re just starting
    To hit your stride
    As you heap abuse
    On every passerby
    They’re all posers or freaks
    You say that you and I are

    The only two in this bar
    That know what it takes
    When will you rage again
    Or is it enough
    Just getting out of your head
    Night after night
    Or are you running scared
    Or you just don’t care
    Or are you waiting for
    That one high and holy sign
    To shine a light on you
    Pull you through
    To the silent true
    Shine a light on you
    And pull you through
    To that one high and holy sign

    Truscott
    3:28
    This one’s for sadness
    These are for pain
    And here are the words
    You can’t get back again

    Well I’m holding a picture
    Of you on your lawn
    Smiling like an angel
    The fortunate one

    Well it’s alright now
    People get through this somehow
    It’s alright now
    We will keep moving I know

    If you remember cause I do
    When the fever was breaking
    I was sweat soaked and frail
    I dreamed I was Stephen Truscott a child in jail

    And when I awoke
    And I felt your cool breeze
    I wept like an ocean
    Sweet tears of relief

    Well it’s alright now
    People get through this somehow
    It’s alright now
    We will keep moving I know

    If you remember cause I do
