Track Name: Falling
Falling

Your arm rides the wind out the passenger side
I've got the wheel babe, you know how I like to drive
Here where these fields stretch to meet the sky
No one in front of us and nothing behind

Each morning oh to wake from that very same dream
Where is it we were gonna run to
and tell me when are we gonna leave

Here I am, falling, all over again
You know I'm waking each morning
From that very same dream
Imagining the shape
That you made with me
It's your name I've been calling
It's sure some kinda spell
I'm under
Here I am, falling, all over again
Its your name I've been calling

Off we go again, so fiercely from the start
Little human stories, little human hearts

Where is it we were gonna run to
Tell me when are we gonna leave
Track Name: Till the Season
Till The Season

Yeah I heard it
Oh brother of course I did
The circles we move in just aint that big

And yeah I've seen it
Coming from the start
A great big case of a restless heart!

You couldn't leave it
But you just kept tearing it down
Oh we've been round and round

With you in circles
With you there in the dark
So stuck and sorry with your restless past

Look what you found
Wake up one morning it's so bright so clear
Just take a look around
If it's growing it won't ripen ‘til its season's here

Yeah we've known circles
And another will roll in time
Oh brother of mine

The season's changing in
This little lucky town
Track Name: Can't Sleep for Dreaming
Can't Sleep For Dreaming

A swarm of sudden silver
Winged swath against the sky
Then they form a perfect arrow
Above me with the sun in my eyes

Their form keeps on shifting
Fog drifting from a stand of trees
Out there where we ran laughing
Kicking like kids through the piles of leaves

And I can't help it
Like those bells that just keep ringing
Been hit by it
And I can't sleep for dreaming

It's everywhere that I go
Going back to everywhere that I've been
From that city steeped in deep snow
To this valley steeped in rolling green

As I lean against this window
Rain beading from glass to sill
I keep thinking how we made it better
How we could make it better still

I can't help it
Give me shoulder shaking! Give me crying out loud!
I've been hit by it
And I can't sleep for dreaming now

I can't help it
Like those bells that just keep ringing
I've been hit by it
And I can't sleep for dreaming
Track Name: Great Wave
Great Wave

You push your change around the counter
I push my knees up under the bar
We've gone beyond the call and favour
Like we're watching from afar

The colours bleed out from the hills
The hills turn black across the field

It's a great wave that's coming down

Nobody's paying that close attention
To the races on the TV screens
I pick your change up off the counter
And head over to the cigarette machine

I've seen that way your eyes drop to your glass
Like there was a mile behind
The way your eyes weren't meeting mine

Oh it's a great wave coming down
Track Name: Already Gone
Already Gone

You gave me nothing but warnings
I kept dreaming our love alive
It broke apart this morning
Struck down knowing that you'll never be mine

I tried to count the times
I've stood here just to watch you leave
I know you had to go but
I Never thought the going would go on for keeps

I got sick this morning
Brokenhearted is what it is
Yeah I find distractions
But it's so hard to get away from this

Cause I see you in my doorway
I see you laying there across my bed
I know you had to go but
I've been hanging on to those things you said

And I can't count the times we
Stood there crying and holding on
I know you had to go but I
Never though the going would go on this long

Now the storm is coming
I stand here watching the sky turn black
I know you had to go but
I always figured you'd be coming back
Track Name: Sweet Turnaround
Sweet Turnaround

Garden full of diamond trees
Little drops that spark, little mysteries
Right here in my hand
Find a place to start, a place to land

Like that butterfly there on the line
Keep it gentle, keep me kind
Let these pretty pearls roll
From my fingers

Open to the sound
Like a porch full of song
Oh sweet turnaround
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long

Let it burn so bright that you can't deny
Let the lightning strike at your wondering whys
Come on let it take you
By surprise

Open to the sound
Like a porch full of song
Oh sweet turnaround
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long

Gonna jump this time
And it's only just begun
Oh sweet turnaround
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
Track Name: Big News
Big News

Light pours across the hillside
Spills across the cane
Rolls right on with the road ahead
Sets the sky to flame

It's hard sometimes to place it
But it's there in all those songs
You're right here in the front of my mind
Asking baby what went wrong

We kept standing there
We've been acting like it's such big news
That you don't know what you got till it's what you loose

I'll drive on in the darkness
Leaving it behind
From the bonfire glow to the harbour lights
Slipping it from my mind

And lean a little closer
To all those songs I play
Yeah I'll keep singing till the sun comes up
However far away

We're already free
Remember darlin that's what you said
Now it's here with me
And it's a big wide road ahead
Track Name: Noir
Noir

We said goodnight before
But you're still standing there
Darkening the door
There's not much left to say

Here we are
It's noir, all the way

More trouble than it's worth
This we know too well my friend
And it wouldn't been the first
Time we slipped to this again

I can't stay
Cause its noir, all the way
Track Name: When I Get There
When I Get There

I'm coming home
It's been too long
Don't know what I'll find
Don't know what there's left of

So many wrong turns
And oh what I've messed up
So much has been burned
That I can't forget, love

All the places I've been
You know I never let go
You've been here in my head
You've been here in my heart love

Oh to see your dear face
To call out your dear name
Old friend of mine
I know it can't be the same

But when I get there
I know that we'll both see
What's always been here
You know you've always been with me

When I get there
I know that we'll both see
What's always been clear
You know you'll always be with me
