Lyrics : Somewhere else a river runs Somewhere else the rains have come Oh I'd leap I'd tumble and fall And I won't keep I'd lose it all And the ocean knows each wave that breaks Is coming home Is coming home Somewhere else a rose will grow Somewhere else a time to sow Oh I'd break but I won't miss How I ache for one last kiss And the ocean knows each wave that breaks Is coming home Is coming home No way there no way home No way back I'm going on No way there no way home No way back I'm going on

Lyrics : Could have been the tearing sky Could have been the howling moon  Could have been the slinging stone If I'd been a sharpening bone But I never stayed to see Now it's gone behind for me And in exchange for a tear I'll be on my way from here   Could have been the blinding road Could have been the aching bed Could have been a warring kiss  If I'd been a clenching fist   But I never stayed for long Soon as it comes it's gone And in exchange for a tear I'll be on my way from here   Made of sorrow made of pain Child tomorrow child again Could have been the twisting tracks Could have been the falling axe Could have been the slowing train Could have been the diving rain Could have been the grinding wheel If I'd been a closing deal Now I'll be the first to go But I'll be the last to know...

Lyrics : Make a circle in a pearl For a boy who loved a girl Turn the page 'til the end Past the post at the bend Shake the dust from your feet Feel the ground underneath I'll see you where  the roads cross At the window of the world At the window of the world   Hold a raindrop overhead With a feather from her bed  Pick a flower from nowhere Take it with you if you dare   Shake the dust from your feet Feel the ground underneath I'll see you where  the roads cross At the window of the world At the window of the world   See the heavens at your feet Walk the path 'til we meet I'll see you where the roads cross  At the window of the world At the window of the world

If I 03:49
Lyrics : Blow blow down your door You wanted less but you got more Blow blow down your door Walk the path walk the floor If I ....   Devil's going to make you turn Red red hot and burn Devil's going to make you turn Never lose and never learn If I....   Long long way home I was leaving I was gone Long long way home You were calling me beyond Fall down kneel cry To my heart I wont deny Fall down kneel cry Come right testify    If I....   What you going to do when you're Earth to the ground no more What you going to do when you're Six feet down and you're   If I... Long long way home I was leaving I was gone Long long way home You were calling me beyond Fall down kneel cry To my heart I wont deny Fall down kneel cry Come right testify Speak out tongue Find the word Speak out tongue Now I heard Speak out soul Hold the light Speak out soul Day and night

Lyrics : Days like these could never last Would I find you with a net outcast Pour a glass brimful of red Drink it down the past is dead   Traveling over  land and sea Wandering soul hear my plea   Cover your eyes the moment's due  It moves so fast what's left that's new? When autumn comes around again Remember me your truest friend Traveling over  land and sea Wandering soul hear my plea   Eye to eye and word for word Time slipped out with the early bird The ripening fruit's a deep shade of red I'll keep some back for the road ahead
6.
Lyrics : Black night shine moon on the wane White horses gathering on the plain Run here run run here run Follow me round the sun   Climb a mountain look out from the peaks North south east west witness when I speak The four winds blow the four winds blow Take me wherever you go Fire in my head fire in my head Footsteps wherever I tread Ashes will rise and the dust will come Close my eyes tight to the beating drum Time is come time is come What's done is done   Fire in my head fire in my head Footsteps wherever I tread    Where will I go where will I go I'm turning so fast I'll blow
7.
Lyrics : I'll tell you a secret here as we lie Under the bridge under the sky To the clouds I have climbed To be with you sweet love of mine   For a taste of your lips And a glimpse of your smile The space in your eyes is an infinite mile And I was wondering if you knew  Of a better way to say "I love you"   There's no place to go And nothing left to show When the seed is sown Come the harvest love is grown   Now that I've found you I don't need to look Through page after page I'll burn up the book Perfect angel that you are  Graceful lover loving more and more by far There's no place to go And nothing left to show There's no time to blow Before it's now we'll know When the seed is sown Come the harvest love is grown

Lyrics : Midnight rolling skies are folding Midnight rolling darkness tolling On the rack breaking my back On the rack run the track I'm  a prisoner long as I'm bound I won't be lost until I'm found Times are hustling lungs are busting Times are hustling wheels dusting Jump and ride side to side Jump and ride call and hide Stoke the flames rake the coal Coast to coast and pole to pole Rattle breaking dead snake shaking Rattle breaking ground I'm making Whip'll crack day gone black Whip'll crack cut the slack Raise the stakes for one more chance Stay awake for one last dance I won't be traveling long Take me where I won't belong Let the rooster crow for day Hear me talking hear me say Midnight rolling skies are folding Midnight rolling skies are folding On the rack break my back On the rack day gone black One more chance one last dance... One more chance one last dance...

Talk To Her 05:21
Lyrics : Talk to her talk to her Take from him Say a prayer say a prayer Stay within Close to her close to her I can breathe Say a prayer say a prayer Don't believe Hallelujah Here I am Walk with her walk with her Safe from him Say a prayer say a prayer Touch within Sing to her sing to her Turn the tide Say a prayer say a prayer Turn inside Hallelujah Here I am

Lyrics : Now I've been running still Counting down the breaths Trying not to cheat on Time While pushing back the clock I've seen the sails blowing at half mast As the storm began to rise I've heard the echo of the bells Round the valleys and the hills   Sing Heart sing Sing Heart sing A river flows in my veins   Crowds were gathered at the water's edge While in each face and hand A million stories there to tell A tale for every man I've heard all the answers But none to fit the question Is there a way to silence? There's the revelation Sing Heart sing Sing Heart sing A river flows in my veins   Throughout the span of years The spinning web is made The turning looms are weaving A veil for the world I'd keep my eyes closed if I could I'd black out the day But I've been waking into a dream Dead and born again Sing Heart sing Sing Heart sing A river flows in my veins The blood runs down like rain

Lyrics : I know all things must change How could they stay the same The picture's slipped the frame It's too late to rearrange I know all things must change for good I tried so hard to be The one you'd dreamt you'd see Made a prison out of me When you asked to be set free  I know all things must change for good   The taste of tears and long gone years Spin perfect lies to hypnotize   Now I watch how summers pass The green fade in the grass The candle burning fast What did I think would last I know all things must change for good   I'd like to play the game To call love by its name I'd live through it again To lose and find you when I know all things have changed for good   The taste of tears and long gone years Spin perfect lies to hypnotize

Lyrics : Many a wish for many a friend Many a moment 'til the end Many a time and many a prayer Many a journey takes you there   Maybe the road's not long     Many a way for many a sign Many a place or borderline Many a light for many a shade Many a turn 'til now you've made Maybe the road's not long   Until the end what's left to come Now I'm walking but the walking's done Open up and touch the ground Far from here I'm nowhere bound    Maybe the road's not long
13.
Lyrics :  Pockets full of lies wearing down the bone  Life is but an ocean a ship made of stone  A desert lain with thorns dogs at your heels  A diamond in the light nothing shines for real    O sons and daughters  Cursed and damned  O sons and daughters  Is this your land?    Frozen over water solid from the cold  Friction is a fire burning so I'm told  Can't make out the puzzle can't dig out the key  If I don't see my own eyes I'll never find me O sons and daughters  Cursed and damned  O sons and daughters  Is this your land?   Trapped under a circle locked inside a head Laughing at the ending stopping me dead Your land Your land Your land...
14.
Lyrics : See now the sunshine Don't ask for the rain It's been a hard fight Don't cry for the pain Easy Walk over to you   See now the day breaks Don't pray for the moon You tremble and you shake That it's over so soon Easy Walk over to you I wouldn't mind going  If I didn't have to lose you And I wouldn't mind going But I can't bear to part from you See how the twilight Is just like the dawn And if no one will die Then no one is born Easy Walk over to you   I wouldn't mind going If I didn't have to lose you And I wouldn't mind going  If I didn't have to part from you Walk over to you It's easy Walk over to you It's easy Dance over to you

If my songs were maps I'd want them to stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.
