She left the house today she was in a panic She said I can't be left out this time She fell down and I could see she was bleeding Don't you dare help me up I've been up and I've been down Seems this world just wants to spin around Proceeds to mutter under her breathe Heard something like, I'm not afraid of death Working up the nerve I ask, what are you going through? She said, I'll sleep here if I have to I've been up and I've been down Seems this world just wants to spin around I fell through the ice again It's not the way I thought it would end It's neither here nor is it there Still I think I've had my fair share I know it's not what you were thinking about But you won't leave here with any shred of doubt

As I walk through the fields with the mud on my heels in no particular frame of mind In a wink of an eye checkered skyline creeps up on me A momentary haze and all the grass is ablaze Could you light up what you hold? Would you be so bold? / Talking so loud It's not what I gave Maybe one of these days you might call me brave Can I get up off my feet I may lose some sleep Well maybe the breeze is good for me Really moves my feet along the road I may never find home You say look what I built Well maybe not without guilt / Oh someone helped you

I've been walking 'round for a while now Trying to find / Trying to find all of my time Time and words / Right words make it easy The better half / A cause for laughs You choose your path Falling off the rails once more I land at your door Trying to find / Trying to find all of my time Shuffling along the days Trying to know / Trying to breathe a little life, little life, little life The better half / A cause for laughs You choose your path

Up and down the room / You're a nervous girl You don't think it's fair / You're a nervous girl What would you rather I had done for you honey? I can't just look the other way Regretting the call you made / You're a nervous girl All the colours in the world / The sounds of your words What would you rather I had done for you honey? I can't just look the other way What would you rather I had done for you honey? I can't just make it go away

You may speak / Of what we'll be You may speak / Just to make a sound Long time listener / First time caller Sudden scholar coming out from under You can't just believe / In what you always see Or you may just receive / Everything that you don't need I was getting there / Thought I gave you quite a scare I was waiting for you to speak / I was waiting for my Long time listener / First time caller Sudden scholar coming out from under

In the morning cold weather Raining on my head again Soaking through my clothes In the morning no better I know it's you in there What will it take to wash you away? In the morning I wake up I know we're not the same I've sung of you before And I sing about you now I know it's you in my dreams What will it take to wash you away?
7.
I was thinking of a man I knew Sleeping in a sealed off room Would he know what time to rise? Or would old lovers stop on by? I was thinking of what I'd do If I had never talked to you Would I waste away and miss the day? Or would I just go on lying? How do you think you would fare? No food or water for you You put a man under pressure and see what he will do

Sloppy night / Bad advice Looking for a window All the while and for lack of style You're pushing for the excess Don't forget what I told you long ago The bright ideas they all come and go Out of line / Christmas time Hollow burning bridge Out of sight / You were so polite Coming up from nothing So I harness my fear, look at my peers How'd I get into this Proof and pain / What more to gain? Empty falling over You hear that sound? It goes around it softens up the blows There may be times where you feel you're going too slow Remember those bright ideas they all come and go You hear that sound? It goes around your head May all your troubles be locked up safe and sound You have a job to do / Don't ask why it's you And I hope / I hope we can think this through Bright ideas / They all come and go

I keep coming back again Oh, you're such a warming friend All the land I've yet to conquer I keep coming back again Bit of luck I've never had I'm sure I thought of everything Finding out the hard way Seems the only way to learn Oh, the north Oh, the north I keep coming back again So we go a little further without holding to the sides All I can see stretching 80 miles wide And I'm feeling this could be our home Feeling all the pressure in my bones Feeling this could be our home Feeling all the pressure in my bones With your smile and a bright face I knew I couldn't leave this place And all the trouble left be beyond our wake I feel the comfort I feel no pain You see it in the leaves And you breathe it in the air I swore I'd never fight Just sit back and cast my line

Slept through the day and you tossed it away In your head, in your home And oh how you fight as if it were black and white Another instance, another wash It hurts, it stings Soon we may have another song to sing Time slips on and on as you tap to some old song Harvest all the same, no need to feel the pain Calm your head, settle down And all that you know is what you were told I don't blame you, it's not your fault It hurts, it stings Soon we may have another song to sing Time does what it does best so settle in and try to rest Holding your heart / But let's not all come apart Patience is a lovely art Lift your head and look around / It's all still here Take some time / Fill your mind You cannot wait 'til morning comes Cannot wait 'til something's done Cannot help but ask How long? / How far? How long? / How far? How long? / How far?
