Track Name: Another Day
woke to thunder - half past four
thoughts of you still raw and sore
it's all right to feel the fight in the light

waiting for you by the door
i can't see you anymore
in the night - queen of night
in the night it takes flight

in this moment music soars
all around you - don't ignore
reignite the sound delights
in the night in the night

one more night crossing and one more day
further away from the last time

farther away from the last time
my eyes saw yours - the last time
my lips held yours - the last time
i rested my head on your shoulder
Track Name: Lullaby For Diane
she said stay home
through windows watching
she said i know
this isn't what it seems

she said stay close
you're just like me, boy
she believes a mother knows
the way to tame you

high willows hold the ground
soft as angels laughing
clean white pillows all around
you can lay your weary head down

she said stay home
through windows watching
she knows doors close
and i'm here waiting
Track Name: Little Monsters
fear holds on to little children
love lets little children go

in the corners of my room i find
little monsters
hiding inside with broken wings
in the blink of an eye
i am powerful or powerless
with my mind i can do anything

fear holds on

if i ever really tried to live
with no excuses
hiding inside with broken wings
in the blink of an eye
i'd be powerful or powerless
with my mind i can do anything

and i tried
to be the one to always see the truth
and i lied
the day i started listening to you
Track Name: Devil Man
if i could just breathe again
smoke and ash and wind again
and bone...
carry me home to the strawberry soul
that is rising in empty skin
if i could just breathe again
get up off my knees again
trees in my waking heart
you know i could breathe again
seeds beat hot upon my hands
but don't grow in empty soil again
you know i could breathe again
you said carry me home you said
make lightning grow
you know i could breathe again
get up off your knees again
devil man my good friend
you'll keep me safe again
and now the sky is falling
Track Name: Harriet
it was one of those days when the night rained down
and the stars reminded me of you
the music whispered softly through the window
to a memory slowly rising
you would have loved the morning

this is the last time
the last time
the last time
i'm gonna think of you

but i'm still thinking...
and i keep thinking...
Track Name: Rabbit and Bird
down the avenue
past the empty stores
that once held your face
safe in their glass

rabbit begs the bird
don't leave me here again
stay with me here
safe on the ground

down the avenue
past the empty stars
that once held your face
safe in their glass

rabbit begs the bird
don't leave me again
stay with me here
safe on the ground

down the avenue
past the empty hands
that once held your face
safe on the ground
safe on the ground
safe on the ground

and stars
and stars
were made for you and i
to shine
Track Name: Crimes and Killers
the headline said you were there again -
were you
headline said you were there again
did they lie
a woman said we'd be better when
a woman said better
with a bullet between your eyes
it's no surprise
stay awake i'm almost home now
keep the faith i'm almost hoping

i never believed you'd be capable of this
always believed you'd be able to find a way
find a way
the headline said you were there again
were you
headline said you were there again
did they lie

stay awake i'm almost home now
keep the faith i'm almost hoping
Track Name: Wild The Heart
all the gods are petrified
and the cherry tree has died
but the grandmother is whispering
move on, move on daughter
move on now

the rabbit is trembling
and the angel spreads its wing
but the grandmother says move on
move on chid
move on, move on now

wild, wild the heart
that burns for you
far, far away
the sounds of what we used to take
for granted

backward goes my sight
through the morning toward the night
and eventually i'll be the one
who's moving on
moving on, child,
moving on
