Track Name: Who Will Walk in the Darkness With You?
Who will walk in the darkness with you
When your shadow falls behind?
The doors you close swing both ways, dear,
And the mirror will tell no lies.

I know why you choose to falter
And resistance calls your name.

Who will walk in the darkness with you
When the sun no longer shines?
Painted heads of thoughtless complications,
A stranger's arms can't hold you tight.

Green pastures, foreign landscapes,
Empty streets, a gallows trail.

Who will walk in the darkness with you
When your eyes no longer see?
Who will walk in the darkness with you?
The God of Dreams won't let you sleep.
Track Name: Blue Skies
Blue Skies are clouded again
And it seems like my old face
Has seen better friends.
But now that I have you
Here in my arms,
I don't need Blue Skies anymore.

Lately, our love has gone cold.
The nights have grown longer
Since you moved on.
You say you still love me,
But not like before.
I never see Blue Skies anymore

It's not that I want you back,
Just want what we had
And only a memory
Can relive the past.

Nights now, I sit here and pine.
My heart and my mind don't seem right.
But think of me often
When Blue Skies appear.
You were the one I held so dear.
Track Name: Honest Eyes
It's been so long
Since I've seen
Honest Eyes

And yours, my dear,
Are just more lies
For me to believe
With a midnight kiss

Truth is washed over
Since the bottles
Ran dry

And the nights we tried
To realize
What we're doing
And what we've done

It's been so long
Since I've seen
Honest Eyes
Track Name: Song Without You
Tonight is fading
And tomorrow's falling down

Promises are breaking,
Can't you hear the sound

The silver lining
Is rusting from the sun

And those candles,
They don't burn for anyone

I've got five cigarettes,
But one will do
I've got three beers to get me through
Just trying to write a song without you

All that jewelry
Will never buy back your soul

Your ways are wicked
Like a heart that's lost control

And those heroes,
They've all turned to stone

So go to bed girl
Feel what it's like to be alone.

I've got five cigarettes,
But one will do
I've got three beers to get me through
Just trying to write a song without you.
Track Name: The Raft
My lady wants to know
Why my love don't seem to grow,
But even the bluebird
Knows it ain't so.

And if these walls had wings
And flew away with everything,
We'd sail into the sea
With the wind and the leaves.

And on this raft we'll float
From morning till night time's cloak.
No need for a weighted rope.
Still waters lay still.

When you're alone,
You're not alone.
When I'm alone,
I'm not alone,
My love.

So put your hand in mine
As the years pass on like a sigh:
A rose that will never die
Or wilt, by and by.
Track Name: Hours Never End
Well, I'm hungry for the morning
But my eyes are turning red
And I'd gladly drink your poison
If it would kill my memory dead

The stick figures of your past
Only make us feel more thin
Don't be staring at the clock
The hours never end

Plant yourself a lover
One for when I'm gone
Leave the front door open
Cry to your favorite song

You keep your secrets silent
Like an ax over my head
Cut me with it gently
The hours never end

Hold your silver locket
That hangs between your breasts
Feel its coldness scare you
Forget about all the rest

Say goodbye to sorrow
Say goodbye to pain
Say goodbye to your tomorrows
The hours never end
Track Name: Black Swan Blues
When I see you,
I see something good.

When I hold you,
I hold something good.

So tell me why
Do I have to let you go?

Tell me why
Do I have to let you go?

Your hand, your hand,
Inside of mine

Feels so good, so good,
It's a lullaby.

So tell me why,
Do I have to let go?

Tell me why
Do I have to let you go?

Track Name: Days Are Long
We both know
The way love goes
Singing songs of forevers

Time moves slow
Never grows
Delusory rows of believing

Days are long
Nights are long
The water's wide (the water's wide)

Trouble's here
Ties up the tears
Like the words of tomorrow

Kiss my neck
Feel your breathe
There's a promise in your laughter

Days are long
Nights are long
The water's wide (the water's wide)
Track Name: Rocks in My Shoes
Tell me,
Why you want to be with me.
Tell me,
Something I can believe.

And now that you're gone
Put rocks in my shoes.
I'll stand here waiting
And always be true
With rocks in my shoes.

Tell me
How long we can go like this.
Tell me
About the night I'll touch your lips.

Miles have grown.
Miles say we're through.
But my love is stone
And it bleeds through and through
With rocks in my shoes.

I see a blue river.
Blue like the blood in your veins.
It's cool and it's deep
And it's calling my name.
It's calling my name.

Tell me,
Where it all went wrong.
Tell me,
Will you ever sing my song,

Now that I've gone
To God's beautiful shore
To lay myself down
With my weary tune
And rocks in my shoes.
Track Name: Bring You Down
Well, I don't like your friends
And they don't like me.
They just tie you up
To bring you down.

The answers aren't simple,
They're overdue
Just like the blues
That bring you down.

Love is not lonely, anymore.
It stays in the covers
And has keys to your door.

So, relax.
Close your eyes.
Take a breath.
The shades are low

To bring you down.
