Lyrics

Daybreak
ive been looking up and down
from timbuck 2 to china town
trying to find some kind of solid ground
to rest my trembling life upon you see
what i was looking for
i knew only the blind mind saw
he had a song of life to bring
and when he touched me
my hands would sing
they’d sing

rainbows
potholes nobody knows they’d sing
good for nothing lover left me dry on the road
they’d sing high roads low roads
riddle me bro
cause its all in the song
and heres how it goes

i throw my words up in the air
like a waterfall
raining on my hair
beautiful beautiful everywhere
i swear if i could i’d take you there
i hold my word inside my hand like a promise
do you understand
avenues of light are everywhere
everything’s alright i’ll take you there

just sing with me brother
we can tie one end of time to another

i got a broken heart and a
broken mind
a perfect broken love
and thats just fine
i got Langston Hughes on my mind
and if he touched me now
i’d sing you the time i sing
one o’clock
two o’clock
three o’clock
four
life was a wall
but now its a door
cocka doodle doo
a blazing my stride
daybreaks happening inside
i’d sing

rainbows
potholes nobody knows i’d sing
good for nothing lover left me dry on the road
i’d sing high roads low roads
riddle me bro
cause its all in the song
and heres how it goes

i throw my words up in the air
like a waterfall
raining on my hair
beautiful beautiful everywhere
i swear if i could id take you there
i hold my word inside my hand like a promise
do you understand
avenues of light are everywhere
everything’s alright ill take you there

just sing with me brother
we can tie one end of time to another

We Were Flying ( 9/11)
there we were like spring
we were sailing
trying to survive the melting
but we were failing
and on the horizon
there was water and sky
and the sun in our eyes
then we both made a pact
we would never look back
and the tears fell like time

then we were flying hand and hand
over the great tree land
flying hand and hand
over the promise land
flying hand and hand
away and we saw
all there was
is love

for what ever reason
the rivers have moved on
its beyond reason
why you are gone

but i dream of a time
there was water and sky and the sun in our eyes
i was holding your face trying hard to
embrace that this was  our time

then we were flying hand and hand
over the great tree land
flying hand and hand
over the promise land
flying hand and hand
away and we saw
all there was
is love
is love
and we saw all there was
is love

ooo ooo ooo ooo

and we both made a pact
that we would never look back
and the tears fell like time

then we were flying hand and hand
over the great tree land
flying hand and hand
over the promise land
flying hand and hand
away and we saw
all there was
is love
is love
and we saw all there was
is love

and i am dreaming of a time
there was water there was sky
and the sun was shining in our eyes
yes  i am dreaming of a time
there was water there was sky
and the sun was shining in our eyes

and we were flying
and we were flying
and we were flying

away

Lit By Light
you are a safe place
although its getting late
whose footsteps hurry towards your gate
so what comes first
the hunger or the shadow

you think i ignore ya
ah but the truth is i adore ya
you are a 1000 eyed warrior
lit by  light you don’t see
Lit by  light you don’t see

so whose that laughing
laughing in your sleep
ask them to light your path
to me
so you can see
departure from arrival

you think i ignore ya
but the truth is i adore ya
you are a 1000 eyed warrior
lit by a light you dont see
lit by light you don’t see

I Believe In You
i went reaching for the moons reflection
in a pool of light reaching for a true connection
all i wanted was proof
a little something to show me
which way to move

i could never hold in my hands
any piece of you
now i finally understand

all that love needed
was to be believed in
and honey i believe in

you oo oo oo
i believe in you
i believe in you
you oo oo oo
i believe in you

all the things i ever  did
to keep alive
are now the things that keep me from
living my life
all i wanted was proof but i
drown in the  waters of wanting you

i could never hold in my hands
any piece of you
now i finally understand

all that love needed
was to be believed in
and honey i believe in

you oo oo oo
i believe in you
i believe in you oo oo oo
i believe in you

ha la la la la la oo oo ooh
ha la la la la la

ha la la la la la oo oo ooh
ha la la la la la

i believe in you i believe in you
honey i believe i do
i believe in you i believe in you
honey i believe in

you oo oo oo
i believe in you
i believe in you oo oo oo
honey i believe in you

Burn With Me Tonight
is loneliness the thing
that makes the sparrow sing
on this long dull day
in June
i feel a stab of light
i am slow dragged by the night
into a room
full of you
if i kiss you now
is it such a sin
is it worse than all these lies
we have shoved our selves in
cause this fire inside
is gonna burn me alive
oh darlin burn with me to night
oh darlin burn with me tonight

ooo ooo ooo

how restless is my sleep
dreams just seem to be
far too far
out of reach
and nothing makes the light
in you stand out so bright
than this darkness
thats surrounding me

if i kiss you now
is it such a sin
is it worse than all these lies
we have shoved our selves in
cause this fire inside
is gonna burn me alive
oh darlin burn with me to night
oh darlin burn with me tonight

oo ooo ooo

if i kiss you now
is it such a sin
is it worse than all these lies
we have shoved our selves in
cause this fire inside
is gonna burn me alive
oh darlin burn with me to night
oh darlin burn with me tonight
oh darlin burn with me

Gotta Give What You Got
the faster you finish the fight
the less shot up you get
sharp edges belong on knives
and not on trusted friends
go and do the right thing
and do your very best
this will gratify a few and piss off the rest

gotta give what you got
while you got it to give
best game is no game
long as you live

better to be silent and be thought of as a fool
then to open up your mouth and prove that it is true
and the one you trust in charge to guard the cookie jar
make sure they dont like cookies
no matter who they are

gotta give what you got
while you got it to give
best game is no game
long as you live
gotta give what you got while you got it to give
best game is no game i tell you  my friend

ooo ooo ooo
cause the game that you play in the world
will play on you
yes the game that you play
in the world
will play on you

and when your trusted loyal friend
stabs you with the gift you gave
pick  it up by the handle and  not by the blade
and when the game is over
and your staring at your socks
dont forget the king and pawn
go back in the same box
ooo ooo ooo
cause the game that you play in the world
will play on you
yes the game that you play
in the world
will play on you
yes the game that you play in the world will play on you
do do do do do
will play on you
do do do do do

gotta give what you got
while you got it to give
best game is no game

You And Me
hey meet me by the hills
at dusk
where the stars they
hide behind the day
we can hide away
it will be our night
it will be our church
just you and
me
you and me
hey yeah
lonely for no one
you and me
you and me
hey yeah
lonely for no one
no

so
what am i to you
still you say nothing
but your eyes dont lie
they never do
softer than prayer
truer than rain
lifting the veil
between you and me

you and me
hey yeah
lonely for no one
you and me
you and me
hey yeah
lonely for no one
no

hey before you leave
dont forget the way
the wind spoke to us
through the trees
softer than prayer
truer than tears
lifting the veil
between you and me

you and me
hey yeah
lonely for no one
you and me
you and me
hey yeah
lonely for no one
no

Walking Away
for ten years i sat with you
inside your garden of pain
i never complained
i loved you any way

then for ten years i  raised our children
while you were walking away
always walking away
i begged you to stay

but this time – its im
whose is walking away
this time i will learn
how to leave

i watched you sorrow like a woman
day after day
im sorry you’d say
while you were walking away

all i ever wanted was for you to want to stay
all your dirty laundry
stinks of secrets and shame

but this time – its im
whose is walking away
this  time i will learn
how to leave
and in time
when im
well on my way
maybe
you’ll have learned how to stay

and the kids
are fine
they’re well on their way – and from me
they will learn
how to leave
and in time they’ll find
in love they were made
maybe you’ll have  learned how to stay

restring my heart
restring my mind
restring the bridges that cross over time

restring my heart
restring my mind
restring the bridges that cross over time

All I Wanna Be
i am cold i am cold now
in this empty room
the trees have grown so tall now
they riddle the moon
and they swing and sway all night
like a forgotten hymn
while i watch you sleep
im remembering

i think i’ll always be
lonely and blue
but i can dare to be
happy
i could for you

cause i dont want to be
a heavy memory
the wire and debre
flung against the walls you fight
no
all i wanna be
is a beautiful thing
that keeps on flickering
through the rest of your life

i am cold i am cold now
but the beds are made
heavy as stone now
while the fires blaze
and i sit in the warmest corner
of the room
rocking away the night
loving you

and soon you will leave
and take that wide step from my life
i hope  that you carry
a part of me
that got it right

cause i dont want to be
a heavy memory
the wire and debre
flung against the walls you fight
no
all i wanna be
is a beautiful thing
that keeps on flickering
through the rest of your life

no all i wanna be
is a beautiful thing
that keeps on flickering
through the rest of your life

thats all i wanna be
thats all i wanna be

Yowlin’
was at the street fair having lots of fun
bought me hot dog on a warm and toasty bun
then i saw him from the corner of my eye
made me loose my grip
the mustard dripped right down my thigh

i should have known
jonnys back in town
i hear him yowlin
he’s swinging  back  around
now here he comes
im a drowsy boomerang
houdini at his best
he’ll escape with my heart in my dress then he’ll
disappear for years
and leave me
yowlin

ran for a snow cone to cool my self down
i wanted  cherry but the man said they ran out
then i saw him  sitting on the stoup
with a look that would break apart  the ripest fruit

i should have known
jonnys back in town
i hear him yowlin
he’s swinging back around
now here he comes
im a drowsy boomerang
houdini at his best
he’ll escape with my heart in my dress then he’ll
disappear for years -for years
and leave me
yowlin

listen to me man – i dont do the do no more
im baking  cookies and laundry by the loads
dont want your candy
its too sweet on the tongue
makes
the seven deadly sins all wanna spin into one

i should have known jonnys back in town
i hear him yowlin
he’s swinging back around
now here he comes
im a drowsy boomerang
houdini at his best
he’ll escape with my heart in my dress then he’ll
disappear for years
and leave me
yowling

equal powers

i traipse your foot path
by the hours
i watch the light dim
as the heart narrows

i love you with a love i always to lose
am i lost am i im true
am i dreaming myself back to you

where the mind fields  are blowing up
where  a hand leads me through the  dark
where im waiting for you  to show up

take me home
take me home
take me home
take me home
take me home
take me home

love
if love be love
if love be ours
let all this trust
break cross my mind in this darkening hour
is love
the sweet fragrance the rose reveals
while being crushed
under your heel

i love you with a love i always to lose
am i lost am i im true
am i dreaming myself back to you

where the mind fields  are blowing up
where  a hand leads me through the  dark
where im waiting for you to show up

take me home
take me home
take me home
take me home
take me home
take me home

love if love be love
if love be ours
faith and unfaith
can never be equal powers

Guru
i went to
see the guru
maybe he knew
the meaning
of my thirst
maybe he knew
why my life felt so empty
maybe he’d help me to fill my purse

they said the guru
had the elixir
to peace and bliss and all that stuff so i
hopped on a plane halfway cross the country
my first trip towards reverence

and then i finally met the guru
so many bowed
before his feet
and so i bowed my head in reverence
this is what he said to me he said

go meditate a while on this
were all just a sack of shit and piss
dont take yourself too serious
the love we share thats  all there is

so then the girl in line behind me
she stepped forward like princess leah
she said i comes from a royal family
i am the daughter of a truth seer
she said my problems are of a higher order
guru
for what purpose was i born
i know it must be of great importance
of this im sure i cant be wrong and he said

go meditate a while on this
were all just a sack of shit and piss
dont take yourself too serious
the love we share thats  all there is

so thats my story of the guru
an indelible stain upon my brain
and still my purse is filled with doo-doo
and still i often feel insane
but now the picture is so much clearer
that was many years ago
and oh
my life has grown much dearer
to the things unseen but surly know
to the things unseen
but surly known
and i

still meditate a while on this
were all just a sack of shit and piss
dont take myself too serious
the love we share thats  all there is

go meditate a while on this
go meditate a while on this
go meditate a while on this

Its Been Such a Long Time
Its been such a long time
since i’ve felt you here
i sit on the dark ledge
of night wanting near

cause your loves unending
sorrow mending
yeah

its been such a long time
my worlds colored blue
the good shepherd of heart ache
has  lead me back to you

cause your loves unending
sorrow mending
yeah

its been such a long time
ive stopped asking why
now my heart is
as open
as the sky

cause your loves unending
sorrow mending
yes your loves unending
sorrow mending
yes your loves unending sorrow mending
yeah

its been such a long time
its been such a long time
