Holy road we are on tonight
Catch as catch can till we get it right
Always... in this dark light
Tell me more than what you can guess
Feel like thunder then quick to forget
Always looking for what is not yet
Lock the keys in my house tonight
Get It Out
It was a wild idea to start
We were lost in an hour
Everything came apart
In the middle of nowhere
Oh man and look where we are
I know your teeth are shut and proud
But there are rhythms in the city
Make your head feel loud
Uh-huh so get it out, get it out
That morning sky gave me a look
So I left while you were sleeping
That's all it took
And I chalked a line south down the coast
Going where my thirst was open
For the things that I don't know
Going where I wasn't paying
For the hurt that I owe
One half moon sleeping by the creeks
And a woman put me under
Salting the silence,
Boiling my blood.
Giving and honest
Is not thick enough.
And now have you gone easy,
Let your lines get caught?
Some sink and some carry
And you will not
No you will not know if
If it holds you
Let all things be as they should.
Let my heart just drift like wood.
And will I break or will I bow,
if I cannot let it go?
Feel that sun just hold you right,
leave you burning down the night.
Feel that wind lap up your soul
if you cannot let it go.
If I cannot let it go.
Keep You Right
The stars wash over me
So far away that I can barely breathe
From where I lay
Never have I been so far
From home o'er the years I was cut
From sand and rain
Through ebb and flow
I hear the train all night, sound of it's wind blowing through
A subtle lapse... and I have a job to do
Walking these cars walking all to sleep, to get to you
But I don't feel you stir beside me, and you're not in my morning hours
Some ties are made to break; some stocks grow high and green to rot away
And feel the weight
And these lines tell the truth, these city veins answer all they do
So, could you keep me in the pulses, could you keep me in the sound
I got wise and I got old
Not once, not once did I fold
The Colored Night
I was in between.
I wasn't offering.
I was a burnin' branch.
Close to feeling tall.
Almost afraid to fall.
I was made of chance.
And when the colours bleed,
Mix of my memories,
When I ride the moon.
We Are The Tide
Our time is ever on the road,
The ride is in what we make.
I walked a year to hear a howl in this give and take.
But hear it this way- hear it this way.
And war is in our hearts,
And blood is in the land we love.
We keep breaking our backs,
In shadow, in dark,
In cold wind, open up your heart.
'Cause time brushes your face
And one loved them - every new shape.
One loved them for what could not get left behind or washed away.
