Friend, won’t you calm my mind I feel like it will implode The difference between you and I Is like the sun and the moon And you know, you should know That to stop just means you should go I should go We live in different worlds It is obvious that one of them makes the other one feel small and cold Let me dream further, I need more And you know that I’m living on the moon
2.
Close your eyes Try not to speak Forget the hours of your struggling Try to fix the trouble And pieces of your broken mind The streets that you are travelling on They lead you far away from home And you don’t know where you’re going to And your dreams They all turned A somber blue This burden on your shoulders Is too heavy for you to carry And the well That you’re drinking from Is a well of a dying generation Just keep your eyes closed right now And think about what’s going on If you’re living the life You want to live Or if you’re just a shadow In a dream Think back to when you were a child And your heart was free and you were alive And the wind And the rain Washed all your fears away
3.
It’s all in how you look at it, she said As if there were a hundred ways to walk a high wire Go on and try to let it go Close your eyes and Let your heart rule your head sometimes Some folks dig for gold and only scratch the surface You saw something more and it’s making you nervous How deep can you feel? Could you really let this get to you? How far can this all go? Could you really change your point of view? Let the best of you become undone Look past your logic and all that other noise You’re always looking For the answers, she said But sometimes it’s all about the questioning You never seem to let it show But that’s alright Cause I know your heart is a deep, deep well Some folks dig for gold And only scratch the surface Sometimes a mystery can have another purpose When your stream becomes A raging river, boy When your grey becomes A deeper shade of blue How deep can you feel?
4.
Don’t go now I know it’s late and the light is growing dim But I just like the way You feel beside me on the front steps, not yet Sing me one more song, The one about the girl, who finds the whole wide world Don’t go now I know it’s late and the dark is folding in But I just like the way Your fingers close around my hand, so grand And sing me one more song The one about the girl who finds the whole wide world Don’t go now I know it’s late and the light is spreading thin But I just like the way The shadows pattern on the road, don’t go And sing me one more song, The one about the boy who never let her go
5.
Thought I came to wet my lips Maybe cool my feet But you pushed me from behind Thought I came to our safe place By the riverside Now I’m swimming For a moment it feels so good I am floating free But the current and these clothes are against me Body weakens, mind races I am far at sea Nobody hears me Now I fight to find the surface Will my lungs explode Heavy water pushing down on me Your hand reaches in rescue Then melts away Now I am drowning Now I’m weightless, now I’m breathless Now you have your way Feel the water flowing through my veins This liquid embrace, this consummation You are the water I breathe
6.
I can’t say what lies beyond my flesh and bone, But for the pull here beneath We reach to the sky Here like shadows moving transience Turning the fallow Or building the gallows To the certain uncertainty Like an unremembered memory You were the reason I had awakened I had placed you imperfectly Like an unremembered memory Oohhhh I can’t say what lies beyond my flesh and bone, But for the pull here beneath I reach to the sky All I wanna do is find love All I wanna do is find love All I wanna do is find love Forever now

God, wont you calm my mind I feel like it will implode The difference between them and I Is like the sun and the moon And you know, you know that To stop just means you should go You Should go, you need to go We live in different worlds It is obvious that one of them Makes the other one feel small and cold Let me dream further I need more Hey you know, you know that To stop just means you should go You should go, you need to go We live in different worlds And you know You know that Im living on the moon I'll take the long way around sling shot around what I thought was the darkest side of the moon Coming round took so long Sun light nearly stole my eyes The stars look so calm when you can see it All so clearly So calm my mind so that I Can see clearly, clearly I wanna see, I need to see I need you So calm my mind so that I Can see clearly We live in different worlds We live in different worlds Im living on the moon
8.
You went out of your way I went out of my head I shut you out You pursued me instead It took some time But you knew from the start I’d open the door And you’d go straight into my heart Your love is sweet Just what I need You have won me over To my surprise I realized You had won me over You have won me over Heart to heart A good head start And it flew from there You took me where I’d never been before Truth for truth That’s when I fell for you Love came down And took me higher Than I’d been before Your love is sweet Just what I need You have won me over To my surprise I realized You had won me over You have won me over

Holes In The Night Sky Were we just wishing upon a star those nights of the soul when the future was dark Were we just dreaming of places far beyond our grasp to shelter our hearts It’s too late I’m falling for you Didn’t we say that the stars were just holes in the night sky letting the light shine in from a better world Didn’t we think that the stars were just holes in the night sky Letting the light shine in from a better world Looking into Vincent’s starlight swirl like portals into the spirit world We were just hoping that someone heard this broken-hearted boy and girl Hold on I’m falling for you Inside of us, in spite of us there is a star that shines This light in us, in spite of us is keeping hope alive Didn’t we say that the stars were just holes in the night sky letting the light shine in from a better world Didn’t we think that the stars were just holes in the night sky Letting the light shine in From a better world You are my star, letting the light shine in From a better world

The air is cold, don't wanna go, just stay in bed where it's warm The nights are long, and sleep won't come dreaming awake in the sun Wake me up in the summertime the warmth seeps in the layers of my skin Wake me up in summertime leave me buried in these blankets to my chin The air is cold, don't wanna go, just stay in bed where it's warm toes to the floor, its brrrr to the core coffee's at the door, climb back in
11.
Ride on a Jetstream Fly like a kite on a string Drift on a daydream High like a bird on the wing, Where time doesn’t mean a thing ‘cause you’re lifting me high High above the wind and the rain When I need a place to go To free my soul You lift me again Sooner or Later I feel the weight of the world on my soul But your love is greater And like gravity it never let’s go Of me I can’t lose for trying ‘cause you’re lifting me high High about the wind and the rain But I need a place to go Lord, to free my soul Then you lift me up again

He came from a seaside town, breakfast café with a worn out lounge Will he be remembered for things I don’t know I gave him everything I had Run to his side every chance I got Will I find true love again? I hope so. Heaven knows it, I didn’t see it ‘til it was too late Can I survive this? I hope so. He’ll tell you anything you want, patch up your soul with his make shift love I swore I’d never see him again. I did, though. We find ourselves in a routine We tailor our stories so we don’t get hurt Never had a feeling like this A new low Heaven knows it, I didn’t see it ‘til it was too late Can I survive this? I hope so. And why should I love you? I have no reasons as of right now I guess it’s a time to move on I don’t know where to go, I’ve never been here before I can’t make up my mind I put on a smile Heaven knows it, I didn’t see it ‘til it was too late Can I survive this? I hope so. And why should I love you? I have no reasons as of right now I guess it’s a time to move on Heaven knows it, I didn’t see it ‘til it was too late Can I survive this? I hope so. And why should I love you? I have no reasons as of right now I guess it’s a time to move on I’m moving on

Promise of the prophets Image of the artist The hope of the broken Song of the psalmist Dream of the mystic The word of God spoken Then you sang your song into the world On that holy Christmas night Lyric clothed in a flesh of a little babe Lying in star-light Lord, my eyes have seen the star You’ve drawn my heart to behold this child This light of God who’s dawning upon the world I come to offer him the costly vows of my love Come all to this palace-barn This manger-throne Of the king, the Christ It’s Christmas time Treasure of the seeker, Reward of the martyr The voice of the Father Companion of the loner The rose to the briar The Kiss of the lover
