I found out I found out I found out the hard way I found out I found out I found out it took so long, but now I Know what’s going on, but I’ve got no idea why All these seasons of the heart and all the changes oh that rages, racing by Well I want Yeah I want Well I want what I can’t have sometimes I want Yeah I want Well I want what I want, And yet there’s no denying It’s not enough to satisfy Yet I tell myself, there’s something out there yet to find It’s the feeling, when the well runs dry And the rain won’t come and you’re on your own Feel the high noon sunburn away your bones Now you’ve come undone So we dance, And we dance, Oh we dance, like fools And we cry, Yeah we cry, Oh we cry, oh yeah we do And then we love and love to love in love….until we die And everything else in between is a storm with clothes left hanging on the line And everything else in between is an urgent plea that’s met with no reply And everything else in between is just a fight to keep that well from running dry

What a Season for the Ghosts Things no longer seen Reveal themselves again these days I’ll run right through walls, you’ll see To keep up with you What a Season for the Ghosts All that’s gone before is Never far behind these days Blacken windows and open doors Crawl within my skin Ready to begin All my wand’ring Take me right back home again to you Oh my lord, I’ve been seething Breaking from the part that keeps me whole What a Season for the Ghosts Living half a life and Looking far beyond these days Take my hand it’s growing cold Can you keep me here? Before I disappear All my wand'ring, take me right back home again to you Oh my lord, I’ve been seething, breaking from the part that keeps me whole All this time, can’t stop feeling Fills me to the core until I’m numb Tie me down, no more wand’ring Tearing me apart again to you Tearing me apart again to you Tearing me apart again
3.
I’m flying in an aeroplane and I hope it won’t be long Until I touch down in your town, but the direction’s all wrong Right now I’m on the other side of moon I’m riding on a railway train and I hope it won’t be long Until I pull into to your stop, but these tracks go on and on As I sit here counting time from left to right go by Just a passive voice, a ghost, a shadow of what’s been left behind I think about the situation That’s left us in this complicated time And you’re far away and this sensation's Got me worried nothing's left to find Well I’m speeding down the interstate and I hope it won’t be long Until I pull on your off-ramp to take me to your home To those old familiar times, used to feel so right I think about the situation That’s left us in this complicated burn And I may be wrong, but this sensation's Got me worried, that one won’t return… won't return Right now I stand on your front porch and I know it won’t be long Until I see your worried face, but I hope it don’t feel wrong When I look into your eyes, besides all the surprise Well when I was out there were you hoping I would just stay gone?

Oh I’ve got a feeling, something different than I ever felt before Oh yeah I got this feeling, a premonition of great things in store Oh I’ve a feeling, it hit me so hard and now I just want more Oh send my senses reeling, first you stole my heart and now my feet don’t touch the floor Oh I’ve got a notion, I want to tell you something that’s never been said before Oh it’s as deep as any ocean, I want to drown deep and never return to shore I know you love me, but let me hear the words again So they linger longer, always in my ear You know I love you and on this you can depend For whatever time I’ve got left down here Oh I’ve got this notion, it’s something different than I ever known before Oh it’s as deep as any ocean, I want to drown deep and never return to shore I know you love me, but let me hear the words again So they linger longer, always in my ear You know I love you and on this you can depend For whatever time I’ve got left down here I know you love me, but let me hear the words again So they linger longer, always in my ear You know I love you and it’s clear you are my world From the day you arrived, well I always feel you near

Figure 8 04:52
If you got something to say, You’ve got to open your mouth If you need your voices heard Lay out down and play it loud Oh yes I see you on your cross so quiet and proud It’s a moment of truth It’s a question of time It’s a figure of speech It’s a very fine whine It’s the distance from each memory to the same scar Maybe I’m just a fool, who takes all of this too far I can’t find where this starts or where it ends Running through the same lines in my mind each time It's the distance from this rooftop oh up to the stars Yes I’m certain that I’m just a fool, who’s taken this too far I can’t find where this starts or where it ends Running through the same lines in my mind each time I can’t find where this starts or where it ends

Make Believe 04:18
Come back down here, we’ve got so much left to say It’s our time dear, we can’t let nothing in our way And if this world won’t show us all the beauty that we really need to see Take my hand and just like making love, we’ll make believe One more dance before the wine wears off and we won’t feel this way again One more chance before the night wears off and daylight brings this to an end It’s all fine dear, if you’ve got leaving on your mind We can’t stay here, unless we leave it all behind And in this world we fight like dogs and disagree and disengage Well take my hand and we’ll wake up, just like water rising off this ocean wave One more dance before the wine wears off and we won’t feel this way again One more chance before the night wears off and daylight brings this to an end One more dance before the wine wears off and we won’t feel the same again One more chance before the night wears off and daylight brings this to an end

Well you ask me how it feels well I tell you I felt fine “Take a minute to collect yourself, and while you’re lying, think hard,” she said... well She’s a model of restraint and I’m a bottle that gets tossed away, again again But I just think about the seconds, minutes, hours and these days that have gone by Did I fall down, did I fall down or just get lost? Fearless and Wasted, so I thought Fearless and Wasted, just got caught again What’s just a dollar today, but look ahead and what’s that cost? Loose lips can kiss and drink wine and speak those words that should stay quiet... Keep your mouth shut Slip the tongue and you’ll get run right out of town on a wire…. birds in flight Or maybe held up like some hero and get condemned without no trial... Well how’s that feel? Did I fall down, did I fall down or just get lost? Fearless and wasted, so I thought Fearless and wasted, just got caught again again Follow the thread that pulls and tears apart Always a....part That’s left behind until all we have left is All these ghosts within our head Well you ask me how it feels and I tell you I felt fine Then she said, “Well, take a minute to collect yourself and while you’re lying, think hard.” Yeah, I always do… She’s a model of restraint and I’m a bottle that gets tossed away, over your shoulder But I just think about the seconds, minutes, hours and these days that we have left Did I fall down, did I fall down or just get lost? Fearless and wasted, so I thought Fearless and wasted, just got caught again, again Did I fall down?

Minnesota 04:14
You were looking at three to five when I watched you arrive Past the garden going up my drive You came in and we sat down, didn’t say a word you didn’t make a sound I didn’t love you like before, I couldn’t love you any more So I went out to let you in When I showed up on your steps Tryin' make amends for this beautiful mess And get a good story I could stick to Said I don’t like rock and roll But I don’t want to stay at home I just stopped by on my way someplace low I said I had to go out to the store to get something more than I had before you got here You took a shirt that belonged to a friend You put it on it fit like when I locked my keys inside of my ride You knew where the spare ones hide So you went out to let me in I found police waiting there, Suburban breeze blowin’ through your hair, And thought of a story I could stick to Said I don’t like rock and roll But I don’t want to stay at home I just stopped by on my way someplace low They gave me this call so I called you I needed something to do To pass the time, my life's in pieces They tell me Jesus takes my kind Well I hope he lives in Minnesota 'Cause that’s the place I gotta go My case is up in that cold town Now you face extradition Just another detour on your mission To get a good story you can stick to Said I don’t like rock and roll But I don’t want to stay at home I stopped by on my way someplace low

Orphan Songs and Dirty Hands I used to play in a punk rock band The songs slowed down, but it's still the same four chords The days wind on, but I digress Staggered steps, Color Me Impressed, Have we hung around these downtown bars too long? Oh yes Your economy had got me down, Run around like a circus clown Drain every ounce of youth left in my soul Fell down blind nearly broke my neck Now I wander ‘round like a nervous wreck This hustlin’ life sure is getting old... Oh no Orphaned Songs and Dirty Hands I used to play in a new grass band Strummed so fast, but couldn’t keep up with them fills Searching for a place to go And strayed too far from Bill Monroe But I think we missed the mountain for those hills... Oh yeah All I hear is argument Is history just monuments to Monumental shame and pain and toil I think about what makes a man And I'm trying hard to understand It’s not easy, but I’m not sure that’s the point... Oh yeah Oh we need all you have and more Oh we need all you have and more Orphaned Songs and Dirty Hands I still play in a synth pop band Turn it up and let the sequence play us out Let’s stay here a while more In darkness, still, before the dawning This mirror only works when lights are on… Oh yeah Orphan Songs and Dirty Hands We need and you are and more
