Track Name: We Don't Know
Treetops sing
the serenades
that we don't hear
unless we're living on the
second floor

The street wires hang like dreams
so high above these streets
that keep us here
that hold us here
where we don't want to be


Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
because I don't know what other words to sing
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
because I don't know what other words to sing


The T.V.'s fall like rain
and crash about our feet
but we don't see
no, all we see
is sunlight in the glass

The love-light fades
and permeates
our waking days
and we all stand amazed
never knowing what we fee


Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
because I don't know what other words to sing
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
because I don't know what other words there are


The streetlights fade
in fashion with the sun
and we all stand
with our dreams done
and undone
never knowing about our
outcomes


Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah,
Because we don't know
oh we just don't know
Track Name: So Far From The Sun
When did I stop trying
to be someone
what did I do
to grow too old for love
before I turned twenty-one
I'm still chasing you
I just follow so far from the sun

*

Does evening drink the sky
and grow drunk on love
before the morning comes
and rubs the stars from it's eyes

And do you love me still
even when I say
I feel so far away
it's hard for me to stay
I'm still here with you
I just follow so far from the sun

*

But love's still sweet babe
and deeper than this space we've made here
Love's still sweet
and deeper than this space we've made
ain't it clear that I need you near

*

I just follow so far from the sun
Track Name: Be The Moon
The sun falls
in the west just behind your eyes
and I'll rest
awaiting your sweet reply to
I love you
but I'm far too shy
to set myself
amidst the stars in your sky

So come home soon
'cause I can't stand this empty room
be my world
and I'll be the moon caught up in your gravity

The stars rise
up in your eyes
and I'll draw the lines
that tie your heart to mine
You'll come down
and I'll get high
and be the sun
up in your sky

So come home soon
'cause I can't stand this empty room
be my world
and I'll be the moon caught up in your gravity

But love sometimes
is good but it's not kind
so I'll wait the time
that separates your heart from mine

So come home soon
'cause I can't stand this empty room
be my world
and I'll be the moon caught up in your gravity
Track Name: If I Could
If I could be
your sunrise
you know I'd shine
brightest in your skies
and linger there
for just a little while

If I could be
your evening stars
you know I'd hide
all of the scars
from your skies
tonight

*

If I could be your heart
I can't say I'd be your better part
but I know you'd be the light around my dark
and together we could fall apart

'Cause love's just the name
that we use to justify this pain
and know I'm not the same
since I spoke your name

*

If I could be
the three hundred miles
that separates
my heart from your smile
I'd never be so far away again

If I could be
the time it takes
from when you leave
to when my heart breaks
I'd never leave your side
my love

*

If I could be your heart
I can't say I'd be your better part
but I know you'd be the light around my dark
and together we could fall apart

'Cause love's just the name
that we use to justify this pain
and know I'm not the same
since I spoke your name

*

Love I'm not
ready for you
because Love you're too
beautiful, beautiful

*

If I could be
your sunrise
you know I'd shine
brightest in your skies
and linger there
for just a little while

If I could be
your evening stars
you know I'd hide
all of the scars
from your skies
tonight
Track Name: Fall In Love
What a lovely day to hide
the sunrise in our sheets a little while
explore the corners of our world
and in the middle meet my love

It's just the nightingale
come to sing her love songs
softly to the night
It's not the lark at dawn
come to take you
swiftly from my sight

Time just took a stand
and I just took your hand and I don't care
where we go
just take me there slow
just let me fall in love
again before I wake

What a lovely day to fall
head over myself into your arms
evade the quiet rays of dawn
and instead surrender the alarm

But it's not the nightingale
come to sing her love songs
softly to the night
Oh it's the lark at dawn
come to take you
swiftly from my sight

Time just took a stand
and I just took your hand and I don't care
where we go
just take me there slow
just let me fall in love
again before I wake

And oh it's hard
the way we fall
apart
and don't surrender
to our better parts
let me be your heart
let me take you apart Love
just let me fall in love
again before I wake

Time just took a stand
and I just took your hand and I don't care
where we go
just take me there slow
just let me fall in love
again before I wake
Track Name: Find Your Love
I'm so sad
that I can't
be happy in your arms
despite the silence in our words
I never meant to harm you

The sidewalks sing
sad, sad songs
while trampled underfoot
but can't quite find the words
you mistook for blame

*

And I
sometimes forget about your heart
and I
don't know where to start
to find your love again

*

Dawn still breaks
like heaven over our bed
you used to rise up
like the sun
now you just as soon
set again

The screen door slams
more often than I wish it would
and oh how I wish
that I could make us stay for good

*

And I
sometimes forget about your heart
and I
don't know where to start
to find your love again
Track Name: Soul To Share
Take of your blouse
leave it on my kitchen chair
lay on my couch
leave your kisses on the air

Oh, take me there
lay my spirit bare
I've got so much soul to share

Let go control
Love you're bigger than I wish you were
take on my soul
oh God, you know I'm so unsure

Please take me there
lay my spirit bare
I've got so much soul to share

Let go control
let's let our defenses down
why be alone
when I could be your home, tonight
take on my soul
take me home
Track Name: Before The Fire's Gone
Love is not
what we thought
before we fell this far
We were both
too young to see
if love would trap or set us free

So please don't make me wait too long
because without you I'm not that strong
and please don't make me believe
that love has passed us on
oh touch the flame to my lips babe
before the fire's gone
before the fire's gone

The stillness in
the air we breath
solidifies, won't let us leave
And the silence that
we've learned to need
keeps us here, won't set us free

So please don't make me wait too long
because without you I'm not that strong
and please don't make me believe
that love has passed us on
oh touch the flame to my lips babe
before the fire's gone
before the fire's gone

And I love how your words taste sweet
as you whisper them into my mouth
and write a book where our sheets
form the pages of our love
I love how we fall asleep
kept warm in each other's arms
and I read your words in my dreams
until we have to face the break of dawn

So please don't make me wait too long
because without you I'm not that strong
and please don't make me believe
that love has passed us on
oh touch the flame to my lips babe
before the fire's gone
before the fire's gone
Track Name: Ghost
I don't pray
these days
because I'm scared
that God will hear
And I don't say
these days
that I've not faith
to disbelieve

Your love
is the shackles that
keep me moving through
your walls
'Cause I'm
just the ghost in your attic, Love
waiting just to hear you call

So shut the windows and the blinds
because there's nothing left I want to see
Just let me know that you are mine
and I don't want to leave

I wait for the come 'cause
I want to know if I was ever free
'cause these bones, they feel like a prison where
I'm not sure I'm supposed to be

So shut the windows and the blinds
because there's nothing left I want to see
Just let me know that you are mine
and I don't want to leave

So Love let me sleep tonight
captive in your arms
and Love let me haunt your dreams tonight
prisoner to your charms
Because I'm just a ghost
hungry for your love
and I move inside of you
wanting just to know your tough
so Love let me sleep tonight
captive in your arms
and Love let me haunt your dreams tonight
prisoner to your charms
Track Name: Shadow
Shadow on my wall
I've no room for you
this darkness blooms
like ink agains my wall
when I'm alone

Rainfall on the stone
stain these chapel steps
this water bleeds
the sulphur from my veins
when I'm with you

Sometimes I feel alone
it's like stepping out into the cold
Sometimes I feel alone
it's like stepping out into the cold

Sunlight on my wall
taste these days worn fears
this renaissance
comes calling me to run
when I'm with you

Night sky on the hearth
warm these open arms
this melody
comes begging me to sing
when I'm alone

Sometimes I feel alone
it's like stepping out into the cold
Sometimes I feel alone
it's like stepping out into the cold

And, oh, this grace
fades from gold
and all I've known of love
has been blood upon my hands
So break these bones,
break these bones,
break these bones,
because freedom is your love
