Track Name: Talking to the Dead (Live)
I had this dream about dying, my body couldn’t move suddenly I found
I couldn’t dart across the yard, taking on a million things, readying for friends
The project that I began fell loose from my hand, incomplete to the ground
The song that was playing on the radio, I’d never know exactly how it ends

A thousand moments spent with ease
Our strength fell with the leaves
I never saw us grow that old
But that’s the story you always told

I had a dream
You finally came back here for me
Hang your mourning head
Talking to the dead instead of me

Years that were made of moments of star-crossed love we desperately tried to stop time
Fingers laced in the sand rocks glowing in our hands as the rain found its way down
Anything to capture our new found rapture was never to be mine
Take a photo, write a song, you know it won’t be long ‘fore all of this will be gone

A thousand moments spent with ease
Our strength fell with the leaves
I never saw us grow that old
But that’s the story you always told

I had a dream
You finally came back here for me
Hang your mourning head
Talking to the dead instead of me

I had a dream
You finally came back here for me
Hang your mourning head
Talking to the dead instead of me

Talking to the dead instead of me
Track Name: Blood on Your Face (Live)
You have blood on your face so I’m confused
I look down, it’s all over you hands and shoes
I hardly know how to react or what to do
A flood of pain seems to come over you

I barely know you but I pull you in
Holding you gently as I can
And I’ll cry so you don’t have to
I’ll cry so you don’t have to

The warmest room in this house still seems cold
It’s always the memories make me feel old
Never have enough time to think that I’m alone
I’m finally reaping the silence I’ve sown

I barely know you but I pull you in
Holding you gently as I can
And I’ll cry so you don’t have to
I’ll cry so you don’t have to

Last night I dreamed my little boy drown at sea
You were sent to my door to question me
All I could do was hold myself and breathe
You’ll find a reason he died I’ll never see

You barely know me, but you pull me in
Holding me gently as you can
And I’ll cry so you don’t have to
And I’ll cry so you don’t have to
You barely know me, but you pull me in
Holding me gently as you can
And you'll cry so I don't have to
And you'll cry so I don't have to
Track Name: Confession (Live)
Standing in the kitchen, friends and family running round
He stares at me intently, says “I can’t stand what I’ve found”
This is not just a sincere exchange over the counter, over wine
What he says throws all the covers off what I’ve been doing all this time

All this time
All this time
All this time

Had I known, should I know, what do I say, what will I do
Cause what he says somehow is more real than any part of me and you
I see through him like a winter’s lake, revealing all its bottom lying stones
And if I do I may dive into a watery grave I once foretold

All this time
All this time
All this time

So I walk, I run, I hide in a bathroom down the hall
Sink to my knees and hold my head as if somehow I can stop the fall
He was gone and so I carried on, but I left most of me behind
With this confession I can see it now, my life if I could just rewind

All this time
All this time
All this time
Track Name: Leigh's Song (Live)
Don’t lead me in or you’ll see me cry
Can’t be the kind to turn a blind eye
When I saw them lying on the frozen ground
Scraps of fabric and scarves they had found

I can’t pretend. No, I can’t forget
Turn around the bend
Can’t shield my eyes, can’t tell the same old lies
No one will die

A frail towhead girl with no front teeth
No heat tonight, can I take her with me
She runs away when I turn around
Now I’m the one lost in her town

I can’t pretend. No, I can’t forget
Turn around the bend
Can’t shield my eyes, can’t tell the same old lies
No one will die

The more I see the more I have to close my eyes
I know I’ll find her one child at a time
Hold her tight as she wails and screams
Let her beat her broken heart out on me

I can’t pretend. No, I can’t forget
Turn around the bend
Can’t shield my eyes, can’t tell the same old lies
No one will die

I can’t pretend. No, I can’t forget
Turn around the bend
Can’t shield my eyes, can’t tell the same old lies
No one will die
Track Name: Last Night (Live)
Last night you came home
Thinking you were coming home to me
Last night you came down
Down fell the last illusion I would never leave

What you heard when you got here
Was much more than you could stand
You yell at me like it’s my fault
That this love ran right through my hands

Last night you came home
Thinking you were coming home to me
Last night you came down
Down fell the last illusion I would never leave

Your anger runs into your sorrow
Your sorrow jumps up from the night
Changing face just like the frost on earth
You come down hard and ready for a fight

Last night you came home
Thinking you were coming home to me
Last night you came down
Down fell the last illusion I would never leave

Somewhere lost in a December sky
Are things I feel but cannot see
Life outside these tangled arguments
Of why and what and how you really need

Last night you came home
Thinking you were coming home to me
Last night you came down
Down fell the last illusion I would never leave
Track Name: Wrap My Limbs (Live)
Can’t hear a thing over the wind
But I still walk past that broken fence to let you in
Trailing my hand over what time just couldn’t mend
Where was I when everything came to an end?

When I come back home
Why do you follow me down this broken road?
Throw your head back and look to the star rich sky
I wrap my limbs around you, like our last goodbye

Can’t tell when the animals came last
When they tore through all we left when leaving so fast
Pieces strewn to the corners now just remnants of our past
How could we leave everything for which we had asked?

When I come back home
Why do you follow me down this broken road?
Throw your head back and look to the star rich sky
I wrap my limbs around you, like our last goodbye

Guess the trees were stronger than the rest
Pulled down all but the chimney under which we slept the best
Precious nights spent with blankets pulled up around our chest
We believed that nothing could destroy our perfectness


When I come back home
Why do you follow me down this broken road?
Throw your head back and look to the star rich sky
I wrap my limbs around you, like our last goodbye

The voice I heard that night
Sounded exactly like mine
Hung in the air like a death
Carried down the road that led, straight to our home

When I come back home
Why do you follow me down this broken road?
Track Name: Just A Man (Live)
The fall day awakes her, a cool bright air and a crow’s caw
Pulls herself out of spirit dreams of fairies, songs and falls
It was him again on the tips of her fingers, tantalizing her skin
Now the truth of her passion must be buried, allowing her day to begin

The color of her coffee reminds her how his eyes find her own
He’d sing to her mapping the mystic lives they both have known
But the thoughts of this are hidden under her wings, close and low
Lest though out her day in the world, someone else might know

How she loves
Because how she loves is more than she can fill without the wind
Because how she loves is lifting her above that promise again

All the joys that the season has to offer will be left at her feet
They can’t pull her eyes from the one soul she is longing to see
When his hand reached out to hers, she took two steps at a time
Demanding a truth so real that the innocence was left so far behind

How she loves
Because how she loves is more than she can fill without the wind
Because how she loves is lifting her above that promise again

Against his mouth, against her skin
Is a close as she’ll begin
To understand he’s just a man, he’s just a man

The fall day awakes her, a cool bright air and a crow’s caw
Pulls herself out of spirit dreams of fairies, songs and falls
Track Name: Season Too Soon (Live)
Sugar in my coffee, such a rare delicious treat
Crow is on the fence calling for someone to meet
An empty page demands a verse from which to feed
Here I sit, I’ve never been so out of touch with me

I can ride the high tide of my pain
I can weather the most blinding of rains
But I can never seem to find
Peace with what I’ve left behind

Spring has come too early, all the apricots in bloom
Seems hard to enjoy a season come too soon
A few more lines I’ll try to bleed from this open wound
So little life, so little time to try to prove

I can ride the high tide of my pain
I can weather the most blinding of rains
But I can never seem to find
Peace with what I’ve left behind

Behind, it seems
You’re my illusion
Living a dream
Only leaves confusion

Sometimes it seems like this was all just a joke
Where would I be, where else would I go
Having a choice is just a trap to want a little more
I’ll never have, I’ll never know what I could never hold

I can ride the high tide of my pain
I can weather the most blinding of rains
But I can never seem to find
Peace with what I’ve left behind
Track Name: Lost from Me (Live)
She eats you up in a voice that kills
But you don’t think you think about her still
The dreams you want are the ones that scare
But these are small things in the face of a dare

He said how long I’ve waited for this moment with you again
To tell you under this cool moon in this hard, hard wind

It was never the same, when you weren’t there I had
Nothing tangible left, I could go nowhere
It was never the same, couldn’t breathe couldn’t bear
Being the one you had left, I could go nowhere

Where you weren’t lost from
You weren’t lost from me

Wasn’t it true that she knew all you said
Was meant for someone else in someone else’s bed
When do the years catch up with what we still can touch
You lost another bright one feeling less too much

He said how long I’ve waited for this moment with you again
To tell you under this cool moon in this hard, hard wind

It was never the same, when you weren’t there I had
Nothing tangible left, I could go nowhere
It was never the same, couldn’t breathe couldn’t bear
Being the one you had left, I could go nowhere

It was never the same, when you weren’t there I had
Nothing tangible left, I could go nowhere
It was never the same, couldn’t breathe couldn’t bear
Being the one you had left, I could go nowhere

Where you weren’t lost from
You weren’t lost from me
Track Name: Exposed (Live)
Running under a threatening sky, waiting for a rain
I recall how it seems that I made a fool of myself again
Maybe I expose it all to burn up in flames
Cause everything that came before has always done the same

If you can hear my voice under yours
I’ll have nothing left to force
If you can wrap your arms, wrap your arms around me now
If you can wrap your arms, wrap your arms around me now

This conversation cuts like a knife through already heavy air
I beg myself ‘don’t walk out the door’ cause surely I still care
As I sit on our living room floor, I’m frozen in my gaze
Could I admit my unhappiness in wave after wave

If you can hear my voice under yours
I’ll have nothing left to force
If you can wrap your arms, wrap your arms around me now
If you can wrap your arms, wrap your arms around me now

For the smallest time I allowed myself not to be this version of me
Widen my eyes to see beyond when the wind would whirl and scream
The storm that I had baited on was full of my own fears
Now I watch them fall, letting the rain drum distance in my ears

If you can hear my voice under yours
I’ll have nothing left to force
If you can wrap your arms, wrap your arms around me now
If you can wrap your arms, wrap your arms around me now
If you can wrap your arms, wrap your arms around me now
If you can wrap your arms, wrap your arms around me now
