Broken looking glass
Dreaming of wild horses
Feel your way
It'll be all right
I will be your standby
I'm diving in
Living in a storm drain
She really cares
Sweet little lies
Time for a change
Tumbling beneath her feet

 

Broken looking glass

Saw you on that two carriage train
As it waited just outside the station
You said it felt good to be back home again
Left me with a small kiss and a sense of expectation
You said I should drop by, see you some time
Talked about them old songs we used to sing
I stood in the rain wih my guitar and a bottle of wine
As you pretended for twenty nine minutes you weren't in

When it comes to you I don't know what to do
Tell me should I cry or should I laugh?
When it comes to you I feel so confused
Feels like I'm seeing myself reflected
In a broken looking glass

One winter we went walking in the snow
Drifted through the frozen air
We built a fire up in the woods
Held you close, smelled the smoke in you hair
You melted like the snow up in the hills
Was that love that ran in rivers fom your eyes?
For a moment you burned a little brighter
And I thought I caught a glimpse of the girl inside

When it comes to you I don't know what to do
Tell me should I cry or should I laugh?
When it comes to you I feel so confused
Feels like I'm seeing myself reflected
In a broken looking glass

 

Dreaming of wild horses

I've been dreaming of wild horses
My thoughts have been running astray
Galloping though my mind
Over the hills and far away

I've been thinking about the ocean
Taking things easy by the sea
It's no career, but I'd like you near
To walk them sands with me

Been thinking about the time we got fed up
And we both said what the hell
Drove around for miles
'Til we found that old motel

Sat by the lake skimmed loose change
Like it was a giant wishing well
I've never been so happy
Waching them wild horses running over the hill

Over the hills and far away
Over the hills and far away

I've been dreaming of wild horses
My thoughts have been running astray
Galloping though my mind
Give me a reason to stay

 

Feel your way

Take a walk in the morning
Catch a handful of rain
Drink it straight fom the sky
Let you cares wash away

Feel the rain run through your fingers
Feel your way
Take a moment to linger
Living day by day

Take a walk in the sunshine
Lay down on the land
It's where we'e going, where we come from
We're all just air, rain, sun and sand

Feel the earth run though your fingers
Feel your way
Take a moment to linger
Living day by day

Take a walk in the evening
Raise your face to the dark
Grab a handful of that cold night
Throw it up to the stars

Feel the night run though your fingers
Feel your way
Take a moment to linger
Living day by day

Feel your way, feel your way...

 

It'll be all right

What would I do with your tears?
Lord, I'd put them in a box
Use some old book I've never read
To act as lid and lock
What would I do with you deams?
Girl I'd set them free tonight
Watch them rush through the darkness
To the morning light

It'll be all right, It'll be all right, It''ll be all right

Do you smile at you reflection
In the back of a spoon?
'Cause it looks just how you feel
Like some alien from the moon
And do you walk in the summer woods
When the high sun breaks through trees?
And do you listen to the birds and the bugs?
Then you're all right with me

Then you're all right, Then you're all right, all right with me

Do you search for a secret door
That only few can see?
An entrance to another land
Beyond this cruel reality
Like Alice through her looking glass
A place where we are free to dream at last
Do you want to go there? Do you want to go there?
Do you want to go there now with me?

'Cause that's all right, yeah that's all right, all right with me

I will be you standy

I too often compromise,
When I should strive
To shine, to will you to be mine
Tuck away my peacock wings
'Cause showing off is such a sin
Join the others who meekly wait in line

I will be your standby
Waiting in the wings
And if you ever need somebody
I will be here lingering
Just hovering

Like some dumb dog I learned to wait
And never temp the blades of fate
I stood by and watched you go
Thought about you most every day
Rehearsed the lines I dared not say
The way I loved you, you will never know

I will be your standby
Waiting in the wings
And if you ever need somebody
I will be here lingering
Just hovering

I wonder where them years have gone
Like some half-remembered song
I hope they treated you kind
Hope you found the love you craved
After the parting of our ways
You know you never really left my mind

I will be your standby
Waiting in the wings
And if you ever need somebody
I will be here lingering
Just hovering

 

I'm diving in

I've been down to the water's edge
Took off my shoes and I made my pledge
Looked back up at the old church tower
Where you lie in the shadows, you had your hour

Ain't gonna work for the man no more
Gonna set sail for a distant shore
I don't care if I find thing
But I'm diving in

I'm diving in, I'm diving in

You were too young to leave his earth
I'm not too old to learn to surf
Gonna get myself an old beach shack
Set my sails on a different tack

I don't care if I fall
I'll get back up and do it some more
In this life you only get one shot
Sure as hell better give it all you got

I'm diving in, I'm diving in

Oh don't you wait
No tim to hesitate
Before it's too late
You've got to dive,
Got to feel alive
Feel life rushing over you skin
And dive right in, dive right in

I'm diving in, I'm diving in

 

Living in a stom drain

They shut us down one Christmas Eve
Then sped off in their fancy cars
Burning rubber like fleeing thieves
Just about got paid what I was owed
Pretty soon it was spent
Justine said that she'd stand by me
Pretty soon she went

Now I'm living beneath you in a storm drain
Life rushes above me
I'm just praying it won't rain

Some people look away from me
Like they don't care for what they see
Some people look at me
With a mix of fear and pity

But I'm not the living dead
There are no voices in my head
I'm just praying it won't rain
Now I'm living in a storm drain

Just about sold everything that I've ever owned
They turned off the gas and switched off the phone
I applied for a hundred jobs on living wage
But in the end I had to leave them two keys
Hanging in the door and walk away

Now I'm living beneath you in a storm drain
Life rushes above me
I'm just praying it won't rain

Some people look away from me
Like they don't care for what they see
Some people look at me
With a mix of fear and pity

But I'm not the living dead
There are no voices in my head
I'm just praying it won't rain
Now I'm living in a storm drain



She really cares

She's never graced the cover of a magazine
She was never chosen as home coming queen
But she's the most beautiful woman I've ever seen
'Cause she truly cares about me

Ain't got the guts to buy her flowers
But I can sit and talk to her for hours
She's got this way I can't explain
I don't need moonshine or morphine
She eases my pain

Her words are like an eiderdown
They keep me warm at night
And, if I had to, I would fight any man alive
To make sure she was all right

And if she ever left this town
I don't know what I would do
'Cause I truly care about her too

Does you heart skip a beat like mine
Each time I walk through that door?
Or am I just another coffee to grind
Sweeten and pour?

Another lonesome shdow passing through
Do you ever lie and dream of me
The way I dream of you?

Your words are like an eiderdown
They keep me warm at night
And, if I had to, I would fight any man alive
To make sure you were all right

And if you ever left this town
I don't know what I would do
'Cause I got my heart set on you

 

Sweet little lies

Don't tell me how you feel
Don't tell me why for real
I don't want to know
Just wrap me up in lies
Let me down gently
Before you go

Don't say 'It's me not you'
I know that can't be true
Please don't waste your time
Just tell me anything
Any old excuse
That springs to mind

Lies, all your little lies
All your little lies are all I want to hear
Lies, all your little lies
All your little lies are all that I can bear
Don't you dare look into my eyes
Just move a little closer, whisper in my ear
All you little lies, all them little lies
All your little lies are all I want to hear

 

Time for a change

Well, it's time for change
Cause I can't keep on doing things this way
I'm movin on, I'm movin on
By the morning I'll be gone

Well it ain't one thing in particular
But it ll adds up, you can only take things so far
I'm movin on, I'm movin on
By the morning I'll be gone

I'm too old now to look back with regret
Can't dwell on the day just gone, look foward to the next
I'm movin on, I'm movin on
By the morning I'll be gone

Mountain tops they soften, cliffs crumble and fall
Dry meadows burn, larks rise above it all
I'm movin on, I'm movin on
By the morning I'll be gone

 

Tumbling beneath her feet

The first time I saw her she had ribbons in her hair
She passed me by without a care
And the ribbons were every colour
Hung like rainbows around her face
With her eyes of green and her ebony hair
She set my heart apace

As I saw her dancing
Dancing down the street
With her head up in the clouds
The world tumbling beneath her feet

It's not the type of thing that I normally do
But I danced along with you
And you seemed kind of amused
We pirouetted through the crowds
And both laughed out loud 'cause
They all seemed so confused

But you just kept on dancing
Dancing down the street
With your head up in the clouds
The world tumbling beneath your feet

The good town folk they all complained
The doc certified you were deranged
And they locked you up for your own safety
They said they'd give you one last chance
If you promised never to dance
They would set you free

But you just kept on dancing
As they chased you down the street
With your head up in the clouds
The world tumbling beneath your feet
