The party is over and I'm heading south I'm leaving the city I've got to get out Over and over and over it goes They get tired of the living before we get old. The brave and the braver and the bravest and me Set off in a little boat straight out to sea A rolling and a rolling and a rolling away The tide would deliver us but I don't know which way. Oh what a day it's been You could live for a life that you'll never see. Just like a vagabond we stumbled through the brush Broken and empty we settled in the dust Lazy and loaded and lifeless I was I didn't stop to think of the cost. Oh let the light in, you don't always win But now I'm alive let me begin Where shall we go and how will we know and how will i get there ? I couldn't let go The sweet and the sweeter and the sweetest I've known Came by in the winter, came to carry me Out of the backwoods where the wild winds would roam They would cry for the summer, where did it go?

It's a golden age that's what they say Well no one argued anyway I gave my all and I tried my best Here's my body laid to rest Scattered flowers upon the sand And all the young folks don't understand And here I ride all made of stone All forgotten all alone Have you seen the lightening times I ran All the good deeds I have done Now they lay my body in the ground Now my race is over my battle nearly run The angels came to greet me and take me to the sun All my trials over and finally I'm free To rest beneath the sky with my family In a foreign field they laid my bones And it counts for nothing I never made it home Through blood and earth and an old headstone Forever England Forever Home Have you seen the lightening times I ran All the good things I could have done Now they lay my body in the ground All my trials over my battle nearly run The angels came to greet me and tell me what I'd done My mother and my father and my whole family Will rest beneath the sky Finally I'm free. Look who's laughing now.

Nothing Else 04:06
I've been drinking for days now Trying to drown my own head But nothing seems to work anymore I think I'll stay here instead To while away all of the hours that God sends And throw my body to the wind I am a law unto myself A living proof of something else I'm all I am and I'm nothing else I have done everything that I could Trying to make it alright But nothing seems to work anymore I think I'll stay here inside To while away all of the hours that God sends I tried and I tried I don't know what it meant But I'd throw my body to the wind And all of the weather it rolled in today And I don't know which way to run But one thing that I know for sure Is that your day will come.

Some day baby the sun will shine I could be your sweetheart and you could be mine You and I will be just fine You and I will be alright Some day baby the stars will shine All of these storm clouds will pass me by And I know you will be just fine You and I will be just right Together we'll take flight I'll be holding on so tightly to you And we'll leave this world behind To where the skies are always blue And the sun will shine for you And everything you do Life will go sweetly taking easy with you Some day baby a day will come Shine a light on all the things that we have done forever we'll be together beneath the old yellow sun And we'll leave this world behind I'll be holding on so tightly to you And we'll let our dreams take flight.

Quiet Hands 03:07
On the other side of a place I know The grass grows tall and the hearts are gold I'm lost at sea and I can't get home I can't get back home So we ride on the seas of change Got a suitcase full of the dreams I made Stay with me for a little while And we can run fast Oh I promise you There's nothing that I wouldn't do When the day is done It will turn to dust And the ghosts will fly But they won't find us She's got quiet hands She whispers her plans And everything is okay You can leave your troubles here To sink like wooden ships And don't dare look back When the morning comes I'll be by your side Through the river of dreams where the demons glide I can hardly wait I could almost die I will see you soon.

Crooked Sea 04:13
Hello, my heart is beating still I'm here and I'm not letting go Did I make you proud? Didn't I do well? Wait; time is moving fast Hold on and grab it while it lasts We don't have too long Just here and then you're gone I love the way you've guided me home So long farewell goodbye and here I go I danced between those little highs and lows And i'd sail along the crooked sea of hope Would I meet you there I could meet you there I walked amongst the people in my life It's good to always keep them by your side As i sailed the crooked sea that is my mind I would meet you there I loved the way you guided me home

Show me my life is it medicine time? I've been sitting down here on my own I've stared at these walls for a year maybe more Is it true that I'm loosing my mind Float away It's only a God and they just made it up But it took me away to the sea I bathed in the light of a glorious day But look what you've done to me Float away Everyone knows the feelings that grow All the highs and the lows That we feel they seem real And I'd break through these walls with my mind Fly out of here take some time And when I am all lost and free The truth will belong to me Oh and I see the sea and the sea can see me I would swim in the ocean of love Oh and I can't get enough I wasted my years and I cried all my tears Will I ever get out of this place? I'm barely alive all I want is to fly Let me go and I'll be on my way Float away
8.
Why wait? Heaven is holding a place You're so cruel Why did you give me a taste? When hell freezes over I will not stand in your way I wandered these old avenues to a beautiful place When you hit me hit low and hard it's the devils way And when hell freezes over I will not lie here awake I won't be lying awake It's all down to pleasure and the price that they'll pay i got down on my knees I was ready now to pray And here's to the lovers, the cheaters, the players I've known Like a bird in a cage that refuses to fly I have flown It's all down to worriers and the battles that we wage They were buried in the cemetery along with their names.

Blood Pact 03:55
So we made a pact And signed it in our blood Said we would be friends But look at us now I always told you I'd lead you astray You never listened you wanted to play If you play with the devil you're going to get burnt These are the things that I've learnt We were young back then And together we ran And I remember it well The day that we sang I thought it would bind us but it tore us apart We rise from the ashes with a heavy heart Out in the distance a hummingbird sings "Wait for me while I begin" Just like a life on the edge of the rails I would live by the things that you say It's not in the way that you say it It's all in the things that you say So we made a pact in our blood Which we scratched in the ground.

Arlo Mud 03:32
I am trouble that you don't need heaven help me forgive me please I am weary with who I am I got trouble making plans I put the bottle to my lips I was seeking nothing But I felt its kiss Are you a sinner or an underdog? Sometimes everybody feels lost With a holy this and a holy that and a holy no one knows There's a devil here and a devil there and a devil down below Well I am never letting go Is there a God? well I don't know I was only looking for some answers in the end You were only looking for someone to be a friend Does it live here or is it gone? When is it coming, will it stay for long? Oh it works in the strangest ways Gets in your head and stays for days It will seek you here it will seek you there and everywhere you go With the pleasures here and the pleasures there and the pleasures down below I am weary no more............
