: View LyricsTime is slow and I walk when I'm weary, and I'm losing touch. I still hold moments from when you were near me, but I don't have much. The heavens, they are inches from the ground. I never meant to wander from the mount, from your heart. But here I am, holding these ashes. My father called, my mother beckoned, I took note of every second. Meet me there by the stone by the river. We'll float on home. I'd never known you to quake and to quiver. I'd never known. This light, it took me half way up to heaven. This trouble took me all the way to hell, to the darkness. So here I stand lighting these matches. My father called, my mother beckoned, I took note of every second.

: View LyricsBeen looking for the answers from the wisest men, but it's so hard to see when your eyes aren't open. With all the darkness in your mind, there's never going to be room for light. When the world is ready, it will come. Don't take the blame for what you said. You'll point the finger and I'll shake my head. You're lost at sea, tossed to and fro. No point in rowing if you don't have hope. When the world is ready, it will come. A new and better life, after all this time. When it goes, the seas are cold and love and hate collide. Words will never be enough to take the fear from the unloved. But they don't have to be afraid, because soon enough these things will change. When the world is ready, it will come. When the world is ready.

: View LyricsAnd every time I leave, I'm back where I began. My feet are moving slow. Hell I confess these steps. So I'll just stop right here, I figured it would help. With every step I took, it wasn't how I felt. Let that sail be your guide, just go along and ride. Find happiness inside these winds, it's an offering. Now I just can't help thinking of the thought with all these people 'round me. Boy, the gossip never stops. Let that ocean be your guide, just go along for the ride. Find happiness inside these tides, it's an offering, it's an offering.

: View LyricsWords in the kitchen in the back of your mind, somebody you can call. Tears in the water as you're filling your cup, kids coming down the hall. And every person that you see becomes a shining star when they ask how you are. Hands in the chemicals coming up dust the sound of a pickup truck. You feel like the goal in the back of his soul is only to trip you up. And when you think that you could've had a life, it's not so hard. You forget who you are. It's been a long day in a long line, in the wrong way, in the wrong life. Weeks on a job and a call that you know never really said that much. The ghost of a lover creeping into your dreams, somebody you can't touch. And pictures from your life unfold like stories that you know. You connect, and you let go. It's been a long day in a long line, in the wrong way in the wrong life.

: View LyricsUsed to laugh, the sun used to shine all day. And I used to love you in a very innocent way. And I used to believe that one day you would find me. And you'd accept me how I am, whether I was weak or I was strong, I was wrong. Then came the day you were so unhappy that you went your way, with my sword and my shield. 'Cause I used to believe that one day I would save you from the darkness and the rain when I'd sing you my song, but I was wrong. When you went away, my whole world folded together. I couldn't make you stay, I thought we'd last forever. And I used to believe that we had something different than the ordinary union. I have loved for so long, I was wrong. I was wrong, I was wrong, I was wrong.

: View LyricsYou don't look at me with conscious eyes while you hold me far away from your chest. You don't think that you're telling a lie. It's hard to learn that you're maybe is a yes, and every other minute's another test. Just when my thoughts turn into words, I felt my teeth fall out. And when I thought you finally heard, all of your doubts were all you could see. Made it too easy to disagree. You were wrong and you were right, but you can't see the other side. I can't change your mind. Take your time. You were wrong and you were right, but you can't see the other side. I can't change your mind.

: View LyricsHome is so far from my mind in these days. Time has been ticking and changing my ways. And it takes, but it gives. I'm not sure what it gives. Blood is much thicker than water or wine. A cloud and a smoke it can pass as divine, but a fire it'll come. Give it time, it'll come. Evergreen, I will wait for you to return to me in the spring. Evergreen, I will wait for you to return to me someday.

: View LyricsDressed up like the king, New York halloween. I could barely see your face, hardly even note a trace. A couple months would pass, snowfall melt to grass and finally I see you again wrapped around your new boyfriend. Baby, if you wanna, then I think you oughta just let him float on down that stream. I don't know how to put picture to sound, but I know that you've got all that I need. Baby, how I wish that you were my baby, you were my baby. The yellow line of town used to bring me down. Mighty how some things just change, blue sky wipes your mind of rain. I've got this heart that's spent a good part in motels all alone. Crashin' on couches and cashin' in vouchers, just time for a place to call home. Baby, how I wish that you were my baby, you were my baby. If you left today I don't know what I'd say. I'd probably light my heart on fire 'cause my world stood so scattered still and I know nothing mattered until you were my baby, you were my baby. How I wish that you were my baby, you were my baby. And I could not let go, 'cause you might never know.

: View LyricsIf I could talk to you I can't say what isn't true. Tell me again if memories spoke to you. Believe me when I say it too. Heavenly light, I follow the moon, but as the sunrise is following soon. Shattering glass all over the room, heavenly light I follow the moon. Heavenly light I've fallen in you, but of the sunrise following soon. Shattering glass all over the room, heavenly light I fall on the moon.

: View LyricsSing me a happier tune, take me back to a place where I can recognize something. Pick up that guitar and try to make sense of what don't make sense anymore. Sing a song so sweetly so I can forget demons hangin' on my shoulder. Shout it out so loud so I don't know what I don't know anymore. Innocence, you left before I knew you were gone. Lonliness took your place at my table. Emptiness came around and picked up the pieces. Innocence, there's a price to pay for everything. Love came down like a rain so soft and warm it destroyed all my defenses. Held me up in her arms so smooth, I knew I was a little boy again. Innocence, you left before I knew you were gone. Lonliness took your place at my table. Emptiness came around and picked up the pieces. Innocence, there's a price to pay for everything. You know, I used to write love songs, 'cause they gave me something to hope for. Lately all my love songs turn to sad songs. Now wonder what I've done wrong. Still I wonder what I've done wrong.
