in my dream 04:41
Well all my life I have opened And all my life I have tried to Well I am living like a beggar In the house of love And while you were waiting For me to invite you You held my invitation And I waited I'm waiting here for you In a mind always knowing And a heart always calling out To the one whose been missing Well were you missing who you do know? Who you don't know? Have you ever heard it call? In my dream In my dream I get up I get out I walk across The bridge between fear and loss and us Well couldn't you come on out? Said couldn't you come on out? I can't wait Oh I said I'm coming Yeah I said I am coming Back in the house In my dream In my dream
2.
I broke my head I broke my head And when I looked in There was nothing left No one's gonna sleep in there again And when I come around Would you be so kind And show me around I know it's been awhile I've been getting out of this rut All of my life I broke my heart Yeah it broke my heart Cause when I looked in there Well everyone I met Said it was a lie we had And when I come around Would you be so kind And show me around I know it's been awhile I've been getting off of this drug All of my life When you cut and run Head for the sun Head for the arms of anyone who's getting free I'll lay myself down Here in the ground Here in the arms of the one who carried me I broke my soul It's sad I know But I wish for the sun When it's calm it's calm at dawn And I've been waiting here The man in the moon of rain and tears You think that I've been leaving But I'm ok It's just been strange these days And nothing stays the same around here When you cut and run Head for the sun Head for the arms of anyone who's getting free I'll lay myself down Here in the ground Here in the arms of the one who carried me

The machine runs fine On this assembly line I make my way And would you say That I could buy myself someday I could use the time away Never had a holiday From the madness in her mouth That we called a reason For helping all those monkeys up and down But it gets her off So soft so soft Take my hand and I'll lead you to my ghost 'Cause the bottom line's gonna show There 'aint gonna be no sunny day There 'aint gonna be no sunny day But the machine runs fine On this assembly line of mind I make my way And would you say That I could buy myself someday I could use the time away Never had a holiday But I'll try to make it across Here with the monkeys in your eaves trough I'll try to make it across Here take the money and run Take my hand and I'll lead you to my ghost 'Cause the bottom line's gonna show There 'aint gonna be no sunny day There 'aint gonna be no sunny day There 'aint gonna be no sunny day There 'aint gonna be no sunny day Hell But the machine runs fine On this assembly line I make my way

when we go 04:43
One day you will bury me In the orchard with my trees One day you will die and I will grieve But would you like to stay with me And where we go I cannot say I am not scared When we go we will be there And we'll have daughters we'll have sons And one day they will bury us Like the one's who came before Well I am waiting on your shore And where we go I cannot say I am not scared When we go we will be there And maybe it's romantic And maybe I'm naive But I am holding onto you And you are holding on to me And when my time has finally come I hope that you are there with me I am a sailor on the ocean My boat is made of leaves And when we go, When we go, when we go... And I have been a broken man But I have tried the best can And when it's all been said and done Well if you chase me I won't run And where we go I cannot say I am not scared When we go we will be there And maybe it's romantic And maybe I'm naive But I am holding onto you And you are holding on to me And when my time has finally come I hope that you are there with me I am a sailor on the ocean My boat is made of leaves And yes I know that it's romantic And I know that I'm naive But I am holding on to you And you are holding on to me And when my time has finally come You will not find me on my knees I am a sailor on the ocean My boat is made of leaves And when we go, When we go, when we go...
5.
We have left the shore And it's good out here under the sun And you are so beautiful I don't care if we ever get there And hail the daughters who are born And hail the sons who will chase after them Like you chased me around the shore It's nice to meet you yeah We have left the shore And we brought along some friends of yours And I have friends on distant shores I think that my friends should meet yours And hail the people we have known We miss you hopefully we'll meet again And when we get there You can come along with us And soar over the ocean And soar over the ocean We have time to spare And it's one beautiful world out there And I can't waste my life being scared Time is one hell of a dare And hail the parents of us all And hail the waters we are sailing on And thank-you both for everyone Whose ever lived And soared over the ocean And soared over the ocean And soar over the ocean And soar over the ocean

Well in the morning I woke up I woke up and I was here And I will go to work today But I would rather stay in bed And it's just another day in hell But there are lovers in the park And when I pass them on my way It only make me smile And no sad stories to tell ya It's just another crazy mile And in the washroom of the world I was trying to wash my hands O if I can This world is made of pain If I can This world is made of me And wherever you are... Well in the morning I woke up I woke up and I was here And I'll keep staring at these walls Until I make 'em disappear And lead me to you my only lover My joy and wonder my lonely sorrow I surrender to you my love and thank-you My joy and wonder my only lover And wherever you are... Wherever you are And I'll keep breaking the dawn every day I'll keep breaking open my ghost I'll make a prayer of this day I'll find the heaven in this heaven in this world The heaven in this world The heaven in this... Well in the morning I woke up I woke up and I was here And I will go to work today But I would rather stay in bed

Offer me your body Give me your eyes I wanna feel a million mouths on mine And I can see a billion faces in my mind Get off my lawn I'm talking to you Get off my lawn I don't wanna give up my world for nothing Get off my lawn See don't see me Feel don't feel me Stay don't stay Come on give me something Give me something I sit and watch you Take off your clothes Like a mime or a ghost And you say "I get everything I want I get everything I want Why should I share it with you?" Get off my lawn I'm talking to you Get off my lawn I don't wanna give up my world for nothing Get off my lawn See don't see me Feel don't feel me Stay don't stay Come on I feel nothing See don't see me Feel don't feel me Stay don't stay Come on give me something Give me something Give me something

baby june 04:54
I hid inside for a week We lay around like elephants on the sheets And there is a full moon outside I feel like a world sometimes And you are a moon You are a moon Baby June Maybe you don't understand me Maybe you just won't feel me Maybe you just can't hear me at all Well hey that's ok I'm just singing to my tribe You are a moon And you are a moon Baby June And we are the ones Who reach with broken hands And I am holding on to you I will keep you while I can But I'm holding nothing And you have other plans For all we are Baby June Suddenly you were laughing And I was a mad poet dancing around you You threw up your skirt I buried myself there and I Am an opening orbit around you And you are a moon You are a moon Baby June And I hold a fire in my hands I'm holding a fire in my hands And we are the ones we are the ones Who were born and we will die We are the ones we are the ones Who tear gods down from the sky And you are a moon You are a moon And you are a moon You are a moon Baby June We hid inside for a week I'm going to make some coffee Are you hungry Would you like to sleep some more

When I look in American eyes At the distance between you and I Sad as the sun in your hair I wonder what I'm doing here Asleep in American arms And freezing out in the yard Old as American eyes The hell between you and I So here we go Welcome to my home The home I've never known Leave your boots by the door When they were looking west With heaven on their heads I wonder if they said over there We will find the sunset When I look in American eyes At the border between you and I Laugh at the war we have got Keeping the cold that we caught Asleep in American arms And dreaming out on the lawn Told in American eyes The hell between you and I Just let it go It's hard this I known But welcome to my home The home I've never known And here we go Welcome to my home The home I've never known Leave your boots by the door And everybody knows That we are growing old Doing like we're told over here And watching the sunset Yeah, yeah, yeah.

I pushed myself maybe I fell I could still hear you breathing in the hallway But I'll get along all by myself I could still hear you crying in the hallway But this is how it goes you should've known And no one has a hand to hold And I am watching my life go by Like a ghost who died A long long time ago And heaven knows I've been told That every hour that I have sold Was someone somewhere growing old You were reminding me of someone I don't know My lay my love my lung my noose It's all a sham a joke that I have played on you Get out while you can 'cause I'm not getting better I'm just getting worse and this is getting tired You must be getting tired And I'm just getting tired And I'm just getting tired My name Is a photograph I hold in front of your face My arms Are a photograph I hold in front of your face My love Is a photograph I hold in front of your face And everything I've ever said Is a photograph I hold in front of your face And I'm just getting tired

Don't worry maya the cargo will hold Mountains of gold if we do as we're told When we are told And we have been sailing a week and a day How is it going I really can't say But we'll be there soon Mining the moons of mars We'll me mining the moons of mars Very soon And I had a dream that we traveled too far Into the hold of a binary star There we were stranded and some of us died Those who were left felt that we had arrived To where we had gone Mining the moons of mars We'll me mining the moons of mars And I'll be happier I'm out here Where I'll be mining the moons of mars Very soon I have been crazy now for fourty days Sometimes I whisper let's throw me away But I'll be there soon We'll be there soon * * * The train left eight days ago leaving us on this empty shore where we are to wait. Where we were before. Somehow there's something here. I can almost remember it. Sort of like we were always here waiting for something. Waiting for boats to come, waiting for someone to come, waiting for each other. Very far away i heard a noise. It sounded kind of like a voice or a bell and it was saying something. Saying something. Sand poured through my toes. I took off my clothes and went for a swim, and then crawled back up to the shore and fell asleep. And i waited for something, for someone, i didn't know. I was sleeping for a very long time. When I awoke boats had arrived, and i was surrounded. Crowds of people all strangely familiar were everywhere. And they started boarding. I laughed and i stood up to stretch a little and to watch them. Millions of people. It never occurred to me to join them. I was waiting. Someone tried to call me from the deck and i waved back at them. I thought they were crying. I was confused and I sat down in the sand. More people came and they rushed by me to join the others. The boats were spilling over. Less people came until I watched the last person board. And then anchors went up. The sails went up. They started to leave. It was a nice afternoon. The ships were making beautiful patterns as they began to sail away and for some reason I found myself in tears. I was waiting. Suddenly i started to run. I ran out into the water and they were already very far away. I screamed to people who had waved to me but they could not hear me. I tried to will them to stop, I screamed myself raw but they could not hear me. I was panicking, I wasn't going to catch them. I was watching them sailing. I could not see them. I fell into the water. I watched them sailing. I tried to scream but I couldn't. I watched them sailing And they were gone. I was alone. I was alone on the shore and it was silent. Slowly something else began to happen. I made my way back onto the beach and I could here voices very far away. The sun was setting. A few more people came running and I had to explain to them what had just happened. I had to explain, what had just happened. And they listened. And they understood. And we sat on the shore. We sat on the shore and we watched the sunset. Set over heaven. And we sat on the shore and we watched the sun set. Set over heaven.

You are my sunshine My only sunshine You make my happy When skies are grey And you’ll never know dear How much I love you Please don’t take my sunshine away The other night here As I lay sleeping I dreamt I felt you held you in my arms But when I awoke here I had been mistaken Now you have taken All of my dreams away You are my sunshine My only sunshine You make my happy When skies are grey And you’ll never know dear How much I love you Please don’t take my sunshine away Please don’t take my sunshine away

in our time 06:02
So how's the lucky boy With the broken heart And how's the lucky girl Crying in the dark Well we are the children Of the daddies who were torn And where are the Mommy's Of the babies who were born In this time and in this place When the world is in our face When the world looks out of place In this time and in this place Well there was this guy Who put it so well, he put it so well Baby you were born in heaven So why're you trying to die in hell So maybe nothing's wrong And maybe it's alright Maybe I could make it through tomorrow If you could help me through tonight In this time and in this place When the world is in our face When the world looks out of place In this time and in this place In this time... Well we are the children of The people who have tried To make things better In our time In our time In our time In our time... So how's the lucky boy And how's the lucky girl How's the lucky baby Clinging to the world Clinging to the world Clinging to the world Clinging to the world... Maybe we could not be sad Maybe we could not be sad Said maybe we could not be sad

I was waiting in the field When you were reading my will Inside a coldest winter's wind Hanging on a last tree's breath again And hey ma Did you like the flowers they sent ya? They were so in love with the money That they didn't know how to tell ya And you know sometimes I really started to hate you But that's alright now Cause I'm just moving home I guess we all get to lose sometimes Guess we all get to get it wrong And then make it up Or don't make it up Well mama says that I'm not here And mama says that I'm not real But there were people in this field There are people in this field Why don't you come and find me? Why don't you come and find me? Won't you come and find me? Won't you come and find me?
