cyclone fence

she, she said to me
remember when the sunshine left us clean
oh, she wants to know
do you remember letting go

we let the hour come steal away the light

oh, my frail will
takes along another chance to kill
hatred in your hands
couldn't i have been a simple man

we let the hour come steal away the light
and then it kicked my sober face into the night

she, she said to me
remember when the sunshine left us clean
oh, she wants to know
do you remember letting go

we let the hour come steal away the light
and then it kicked my sober face into the night
oh woe am i, come wash away my sin
and let me open up this door against the wind

haunted church

you think you know everything about me
i could tell you now everything i'm thinking
and i promise you that you wouldn't know a word

and to think you didn't see
you were all alone next to me
you were all alone next to me
all alone

taking folding chairs up to the cathedral
lying on the floor in a haunted church
whining to the score that i couldn't need you more

and if i fell into the sea
you'd still be all alone next to me
still be all alone next to me
all alone

and every time i try to figure out the end
i couldn't see
i'm getting closer as the sand becomes a friend
i couldn't be
oh my God i never thought i would remember
that you're still here when i open up my eyes

to think i didn't see
you were all alone next to me
you were all alone next to me
all alone

confused

took me awhile just to give it away
i've been saving it up, i've been saving it up

no

took me awhile just to tell you the truth
i've been saving it up, i've been saving it up

no more time
no more time

if my face gives away i'm confused
terribly sorry to say you elude
carry your sigh on your head
and you paint on your frown could i love you instead

i'll give you a chance if you leave one to me
where do we begin, where do we begin

no more time
no more time

if my face gives away i'm confused
terribly sorry to say you elude
carry your sigh on your head
and you paint on your frown could i love you instead

i feel lonely
wouldn't you
i feel sorry
shouldn't you

no more
no more time

if i were dead

so long, i guess it's so long
i can feel this now
my time, yes it's my time
do you want me now
oh well, you never could tell
'cause you don't know how
you saved me, then you dragged me
all the way to hell

and all the times you said
that you'd be better off if i were dead
you know you could have walked away
could have walked away

over, guess it's over
and now you're the one
who cares, 'cause you're so scared
and you know i'm done
so long, guess it's so long
do you feel this now

and all the times you said
you'd be better off if i were dead
you know you could have walked away
could have walked away

and all the times you said
that you'd be better off if i were dead
you know you could have walked away
could have walked away

windswept

all my friends are lonely
they left me only
minutes in the hole
so i'll fake a listen
sneak a kiss in
but only love is gold

and i see you from afar
well i know who you are
i can tell you all apart

would you marry me
so we'll be free
for a lovely day
would you care to fall
and sell us all
would you laugh along the way

and i see you from afar
well i know who you are
i can tell you all apart

but if you leave it to me she said
you're asking the world
and if you take it from me instead
who will you owe

wouldn't i be freezing
but so alive
if i killed another day
though i've never fallen
still you mention often
that i wanted to be saved

and i see you from afar
well i know who you are
i can tell you all apart

but if you leave it to me she said
you're asking the world
and if you take it from me instead
who will you owe

and i see you from afar
well i know who you are
i can tell you all apart
i see you from afar
well i know who you are
i can tell you all apart

but if you leave it to me she said
you're asking the world
and if you take it from me instead
who will you owe
i've caught my hand in the door again
what is it for
if you leave it to me she said
who will you owe

beauty


words by Shelly Walker
music by Aaron Sprinkle
beauty unbounded lies in your mind
shines in your face and speaks through your eyes
sour still the memory of past words and fears
clouds thick the joy in happier years

sorrow unmeasured runs through your frame
pulling you down and taking your strength

sorrow unmeasured runs through your frame
pulling you down and taking your strength
stars in your eyes and dreams in your heart
are almost in reach yet a little too far

fall to place

would you have noticed if i swam away
did i make you think twice about letting me in
maybe if you'd hold me one more time
i can't tell you anything that is not a lie

the changing times, the fading lines
will you carry me
a fortress falls, a lady calls
"will you marry me"

shot down your advice about the world
but i didn't listen when you hated me
it took me ages just to come to this
if you wanted to kill me you could've done it with a kiss

the changing times, the fading lines
will you carry me
a fortress falls, a lady calls
"will you marry me"

since you went sour
i've been wondering how the rest will fall to place
and i didn't notice
how you undertook this burden of disgrace

the changing times, the fading lines
will you carry me
a fortress falls, a lady calls
"will you marry me"
the changing times, the fading lines
will you carry me
a fortress falls, a lady calls
"will you marry me"

first time in vermont


written by Nick Barber
with Rose Blossom Punch
chasing words
are you still frightened
heard you called
caught my wandering
thought they'd see
see it my way
broken words
i am frightened now

we could stand together if i'd just speak out
we could find a meaning on this torn blue couch

broken mouth
a fortune to make up
sickened heart
all for you my love
thought you'd see
see it my way
in turn
we'll sing out loud

we could stand together if i'd just speak out
we could find a meaning on this torn blue couch
in my head the reasons are all on display
i could tell you everything but not today

please don't ask why till we rise
your dreams are mine

hot rod horse

drivin' through tennessee
not a house in sight
i think about all the times
we've held each other tight
i hear your voice on the phone
before i go to bed
i lay awake all night long
with your face inside my head

'cause i'm too far away to see you
all i want is to be with you and look into your eyes
'cause i feel so alone without you

i've got a thought, it keeps me sane
you've gotta know it's true
no matter which way i drive
i'll end up home with you

i'm too far away to see you
all i want is to be with you and look into your eyes
'cause i feel so alone without you

say a prayer for me and when you do
you know i'll say one too
and i'll be thinking of that special girl i love

i'm too far away to see you
all i want is to be with you and look into your eyes
'cause i feel so alone
and i feel so alone
i feel so alone without you

a step into the dark

i guess i thought a letter would be less confusing
for Your eyes i write another waterlogged excuse
toil and turn and watch another secret burn
controlling words is something i just wasn't born to do
there is a secret beneath You

in my silence i defend my common sense
and i see through all the stupid things i do

it's hard to write a letter with an open mind
when all i saw was underneath a satisfied embrace
that exposed Your wondrous face

in my silence i defend my common sense
as i'm walking along my familiar fence
then i see through all the stupid things i do
and that this path i'm on will never lead to You

in my silence i defend my common sense
and i'm walking along my familiar fence
and i see through all the stupid things i do
and that this path i'm on will never lead to You
and i'm looking back to only see a spark
as i finally take a step into the dark

par avion

did you open up your mouth
did it appear to be
the final falling out
with what is left of me
hear the laughter on the hill
when everything is still

naturally it makes me angry
i'm overwhelmed with hate and worry
and i've been lying on the floor for hours
with principalities and powers

could it have ever been
but near the end
you opened up your mouth
it all comes falling out
hear the crying on the hill
and everything is still

and naturally it makes me angry
i'm overwhelmed with hate and worry
and i've been lying on the floor for hours
with principalities and powers

don't you ever say to me again it's all over now
and don't it feel like it's all too real
you saved my soul
but did you open up your head
and did you figure out again
that the redemption never ends
in spite of me

(come on over
it's all over
i'm on your good side)

i've been holding it to feel the same
if i could get into the game
it's all my fault
you said to me yourself to let it go
and i can feel it so much more
than i've known
well i heard about our friend
i hear he'll never hope again
it's all the same
