Tongue-Tied 05:26
I feel your breath I feel your skin The days can't mark The beginning or the end And it feels like honey Mmmm, when we kiss Like two souls rolling Into the Abyss But even in the daylight I find myself tongue-tied When I'm around you When I'm around you Cause even if I know my mind Still I'm just tongue-tied When I'm around you When I'm around you Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo Feel that thunder When wild horses run I feel that free wind When I'm in your arms So what's the rush? We can slow it down, slow Just like that river flowin' Ohh, the places to grow So get me in the dark of the night And there's no one around I'm still with you I'm still with you Said get me in the dark on the night And there's no one around I'm still with you I'm still with you Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo Even in the daylight Still I'm just tongue-tied When I'm around you When I'm around you Cause even if I know my mind Still I'm just tongue-tied When I'm around you Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo

Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo When I was a kid I looked to moon Thought I already was there Hands so warm And smile so thin It could have easily broke the veil She sent out a warning Things are not what they seem What is to break or bend? Ooooooo Break or bend Time it bleeds Oh, the time it bends Her back into the spring to sew the seeds Of future flowers To be pressed into the pages Of a long wind Of a long wind Of a long winter's eve Lord I don't want to Save my soul again Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo I'll be back again To hear the tale Forged in the ice and the dirt Maybe then I'll see the ones That came here before Holding a candle high Holding it in the air Holding it till I'm nothing More than dirt and dust Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo Oooooo

Sleepwalker 03:46
The sleepwalker sees The ghosts in the trees Understands that the wind gives voice to the leaves And secrets are spilled In the full moonlight The shadows casting spells On the dreamers Through the dark glass Of your window at night What could she spy With her large marble eyes? Well it would give you a fright Ooooo Ooooo Ooooo Ooooo Ooooo The sleepwalker sees The difference between The shadows and the shapes That are creepin' And secrets you hide In the pale moonlight Are only adrift when you're sleepin' Thru the dark glass Of your window at night What could she spy With her large marble eyes? Well, it would give you a fright The sleepwalker sees The ghosts in the trees Understands that the wind Gives voice to the leaves

Ode to BF 03:16
You don't know how beautiful you are Creating a mess Wherever, whenever you go Searching for the dreams Written on the bedroom walls That's the best kind of love of all And I can hear those voices That call out to you in your head They're not very nice Especially in the early mornins But we feel it out Like my shadow feels my stride Taking long glances Long greetings And long goodbyes And maybe, give a few But the wind blows hard The wind blows hard The wind blows hard And now you're gone, gone Now you're gone

Walked down to the ocean Just the other day It was the rocks, the sand The turtles and just me Birds were flying over Over head And somewhere Deep inside me sang Oooooo oooooo oooooo oooooo oooooo Lately, I haven't been getting too much sleep Must have been the good friends, And the good times I've seen But it's hard to know Where else to go when you've got a place sittin so deep inside the recesses of your heart so we sing Oooooo oooooo oooooo oooooo oooooo Walked down to the ocean Just the other day And it was the rocks, the sand The turtles and just me And just me

There was a time That I thought My life was through That joy was a lie And love wasn't true And the dark whispered to me That'd I'd always be blue My whole heart was broken Nothin' felt new Barely in the light I'm barely in the day Barely in the light Just wastin' away And then there was you There was Then there was you Then there was you There was Then there was you And the storm clouds had parted Oh and the moon shone above Starlight in your eyes Smile white as a dove Go on and go you lonesome ghost Go on and go your way Go on and go you lonesome ghost Go on and go your way I didn't know What I'd lost This time Barreling down That South Texas line Oh, like diamonds and whiskey You were all of those things With a head full of sorrow Life ridden life a theif Nearly in the light Nearly in the day Nearly in the light Just a moment away Nearly in the light I'm nearly in the day Nearly in the light Just a moment away Then there was Us There was Then there was Us Then there was Us There was Then there was Us

We started a fire Down by the railroad Cold coals of desire But that's the way it goes We started a flame That burned down too quickly Ol coals and cold smoke But that's the way it goes I never thought I'd be alone Lord God, Ohh, The time I spent Oh, time we spent The time I spent it went Oh, so, fast And Oh and here we are Like in Lonesome Dove Like the same old song Lightening strikes maybe once or twice Maybe more I don't know I don't know We started a fire Down by the railroad Cold coals of desire But that's the way it goes We started a flame That burned down too quickly Cold coals and cold smoke But that's the way it goes I never thought I'd be alone Lord God, Ohh, The time I spent Oh, time we spent The time I spent it went Oh, so, fast The time I spent it went The time I spent it went The time I spent it went
