Light your candle Turn your lamp down low Light your candle Turn your lamp down low Put your hand in mine Come sit by my side Ooh honey I just want to see you shine Whisper secrets Things I may never know Kiss me sweetly Say you don't have to go Such a long long while How I missed your smile Ooh honey I just want to see you shine Restless dreamer I know you love the road Forever fearless think of me as you go The moon is high Pour another glass of wine Ooh honey I just want to see you shine Such a long long while How I missed your smile Ooh honey I just want to see you shine

I heard it said God is dead but I saw him fishing by the river I'm not alone, I'm homeward bound On the long and bumpy road of lost and found Shadow walk in the valley of Death Burden of the world like a weight around my neck I'm not alone, I'm homeward bound On the long and bumpy road of lost and found Leaves are falling to the ground I can smell those fields of green Like a dream calling me From my troubled sleep Try to sane in a time so dark It's bad for the brain, it's worse for the heart I'm not alone, I'm homeward bound On the long and bumpy road of lost and found Leaves are falling to the ground I can smell those fields of green Like a dream calling me From my troubled sleep

Atonement 03:47
Thinking like a mountain Snow falls without a sound Though I know not where my life may lead I give myself to the day I carry centuries of rock and bone hauled up through the hours I grow the seeds so many hands have sown Stand atop the ancient tower Drinking from the fountain Cold rain misting down The path winds by the old landslide where the waters intertwine Fiery words from burning pages Illuminating every stair Galaxies of moon and stars Made greater for these prayers Thinking like a mountain Green fire dying out Wild geese like a wishbone fly leaving time behind

Rusted Car 03:10
The meadow dips towards the wood Where the car rusted for decades stood Now home to raccoons Green moss covers the hood The weathered metal's growing red Forgotten sunbeam lies a wreck From inside out the forest floor will claim it back It will remain though paint may fade Things always pass and disintegrate But think not on what's still far away And how you'll come to your resting place There's a lesson in the steel and a lesson in its grace Just for a year if that at best I didn't know it could happen this past I'm not one for holding too long Glad I was caught before I'm gone It still remains though things may change Things always pass and disintegrate But think not on what's still far away And how you'll come to your resting place There's a lesson in the steel and a lesson in its grace

I climbed to the highest mountaintop and I rose above the frozen clouds Beyond where the world could touch me In search of that sacred ground And I danced with a worm in a bottle Shrank down through a hole in the floor Chased the vows coming out of my mouth In search of that sacred ground Hope's a dream with her sleeves rolled up Reach out your hand and fill your golden cup Some say there's a heaven, some say there's a hell Either way you're gonna ring that bell I slithered like a snake in a lakebed And I bounced like a kangeroo Wandered around the old burial ground In search of that sacred ground Hope's a dream with her sleeves rolled up Reach out your hand and fill your golden cup Some say there's a heaven, some say there's a hell Either way you're gonna ring that bell I slept on your bed of thorns And I crawled across your broken glass Inch by inch and pound by pound In search of that sacred ground

Creek 04:08
Look I'm not philosopher But ideas are my food and your words are my meat I may be no scientist but discovery lies where the heart makes its seat I do believe that a child can know so much more than a man whose vitality has been lost over his cold machines Ooo don't be afraid to feel It won't take away your strength of mind Let life be revealed In the creek beside your home Running trippingly over stones Who knows of genius who obeys all the rules who plays by the plan? And whose life is so righteous that another to love is below his command? I do believe that the oldest things will always call you back As expected embedded within Ooo don't be afraid to feel It won't take away your strength of mind Let life be revealed You never what you may find Trust in what you know is real And soon it all will fall in line Let in let in inspiration In the creek beside your home Running trippingly over stones

I think you stole my socks Swiped the lightbulb out of my socket The key to the lock on my heart Yesterday it was in my front pocket You made off with quite a haul Thief running down the hall Disappearing in the shadows Flames leap from metal drums Unquenchable desire burning in my lungs Leaves me looking and waiting for you I heard a laugh like yours Opened up the doors of my mind The cat in your lap on my porch No concern for the passing of time Just a smile that could last a thousand miles Your hair shining in the bath We need to get back before the moment has flown Like a balloon floating on its own I keep looking and waiting for you I dreamed of a house on a lake Joseph's coat rose and a white picket gate and we forgave all our mistakes Brand new morning grin on your face We rode to the other side Left that boat far behind We walked from the shore to the tall trees I turned around it was just me and the breeze I'm still looking and waiting for you

I don't want to catch that last wild salmon Don't want to see the last tree fall Can't go home while the band is still jamming But before I leave this world I wanna know you I don't want to see the last glacier melting Don't want to hear the lonely lion's roar I have my garden. I have my shelter But before I leave this world I wanna know you I wanna know you like the river seeks the sea Like the queen sips her tea In this world of hopes and dreams I so clearly see Before my name is called I wanna know you So much to love and so little time When will we truly be Unchained from this human binds Like dolphins swimming free? I don't want to wish there were words we never said A list of undone deeds that we both regret I don't needs angel's wings or some message heaven-sent But before I leave this world I wanna know you I wanna know you like the river seeks the sea Like the queen sips her tea In this world of hopes and dreams I so clearly see Before my name is called I wanna know you

A school a church a shopping mall It's a dangerous world out there Movie theater parking lot It's a dangerous world out there Let's send the kids with knives to school They can sharpen their turns of phrase Cut holes in theories and arguments as easy as turning a page Living room navy yard barber shop It's a dangerous world out there Newtown Columbine It's a dangerous world out there Hunstman aims at the buck And a rifle shot cracks the air High powered fat cat lobbyists Claim his back on the capitol stair A school a church a shopping mall It's a dangerous world out there

Windcatcher 04:08
Come up to the pond No one will notice we're gone Strip down in the softest sunlight The party's down in the kitchen No one will wonder a thing Tall trees keep us out of sight Let's swim across to the other bank Amongst the shaded reeds will you share your plans? Look what you've caught in your net windcatcher Now don't let it go Now don't let it go Oh up at the pond Hearing the old horned lark's song I know that this moment's just right But time slips away Oh there goes the day on the back of the galloping night Take a deep breath like it is your last Amongst the shaded reeds Will you take a chance? Look what you've caught in your net windcatcher Oh don't let it go Now don't let it go Oh don't let it go Sometimes when I hear a breeze Whistling through the tops of the tall fir trees I'm reminded I'm reminded of you
