Track Name: Each Wave That Breaks
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
Track Name: Sharpening Bone
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...
Track Name: At The Window Of The World
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
Track Name: If I
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
Track Name: Days Like These
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
Track Name: Fire In My Head
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
Track Name: Come The Harvest
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
Track Name: Midnight Rolling
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...
Track Name: Talk To Her
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
Track Name: Uncover My Eyes
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
Track Name: The Taste Of Tears
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 
Track Name: The Road's Not Long
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
Track Name:  Sons And Daughters
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...
Track Name: Walk Over To You
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
