Falling 03:38
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

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

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

Great Wave 05:39
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

Already Gone 03:10
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

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

Big News 04:04
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
9.
Noir 04:45
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
10.
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
