Track Name: Born On Separate Days
you’re gone too soon
so I’ll guess
what makes you want to run away from all this?
now I hate to say that I was wrong, but I did
is it too late to clue me in?

remembering the words you meant to say
you and me were born on separate days
and I don’t know why you take the time
to stay so long, then you blow by

diggin’ ditches all night long
doesn’t get it
piling bricks to prove I’m strong
gotta quit it
and it looks to me like I will never meet your demands
by surrendering again

you promised every thing you took away
remembering the words you said to me
you and me were born on separate days
and I don’t know why you take the time
to stay so long, then you blow by

you left a bill of goods I have to pay
i’d rather die alone than live this way
you and me were born on separate days
and I don’t know why you take the time
to stay so long, then you blow by
Track Name: Perfect
here’s something for you now
you’re the best to me
and all my misery
and when we find ourselves
thinking the opposite
not getting over it

i’m involved
too hard not to
see the end
when we begin
try baby
never let up
i’m ready to be hit with your love

and you are always sure
that my dizziness
is never serious
you seem to have a cure
the perfect remedy
the one you bring to me
you know I feel it
how the world around
changes with the sound

of the words
that you are saying
so let it out
don’t be afraid
my baby
never give up
i’m ready to be hit with your love

coming a long long way
perfect perfect
we go together
intertwined
won’t separate
perfect perfect
we are together

we are together
we are together

intertwined
won’t separate it
going a long long way

gonna save some for now
you’re the best to me
you’re the most important thing
you know we kid ourselves about
how we’re growing old
how we’re making out

i’m ready to be hit with love

we’ve come a long way
we go together
intertwined
can’t separate
we fall together

going a long way
we go together
going a long long way
we go together

we go a long way
i’m ready, are you ready to go?
come on baby
are you going with me?
Track Name: Roesbud
ever since I lost my way again
i’ve been rushing up on things to say to you
when I saw you
and you saw me
with weak eyes

running away
far away from
that heavenly night
too far away from
one more emotion filled afternoon
on the porch at your mother’s place

waiting for the wind
to come ‘round to say
what I hoped you would say
now I wonder if one day
i’m gonna feel free to move on

then you take a turn…..

this whole world is trying
to shake me up again
now I reach above the clouds
to walk toward
to walk around

paper into ashes
ashes into mud
did we learn anything?
Track Name: Dig My Heels
we’re here together
sharing pieces of what we found
under the weather
like a hurricane year ‘round
winds of change were blowing
but we did not hear the sound
now all is lost
and I’m needing to be found

i dig my heels in
i’m gonna hold out
i dig in now

we’ve seen each other
through the changes that have come
this understanding
is like a game that’s never won
like a siege unending
till our hearts have come undone
when all is lost and gone
and I’m needing to run

i dig my heels in
i’m gonna hold out
i dig in now

(repeat chorus)

don’t wander too long
if you’ll be stayin’ on
when I’m dug on down
i am standing, I am strong
don’t lose sight of us
if you can hear my voice
it could be dangerous
and you may not have a choice

i dig my heels in
i’m gonna hold out
i dig in now
Track Name: Lifeline
we were there when they started it all
built a world out of nothing
in a word or two
a promise was made and a dream came true

now we stare at the faces of all
and the path that we have chosen
say a word or two
a promise is made and the dream is replayed

holding on to the lifeline
keeping with the way we want it
holding on to the lifeline
the lifeline

as the dance begins we fascinate
how we find ourselves together
say a prayer or two
we do what we can do
but we are scared

as we take our love in our hands
place a brick upon a stone
will the faith we have drawn in the plans
turn this house into a home?

chorus

this time is not in vain
if we understand how the seasons change
the sky floods up with rain
when it clears the air
we can breathe again

now we’re on our way
let the sky turn black
let the seasons rage
our love will still remain
when we clear the air
when we clear the air
Track Name: Take Your Mind Off It
grey clouds tearing at the sky
(see if you can take your mind off it)
lose some vision and your blind
(see if you can take your mind off it)
loose some buckles on your bind
(see if you can take your mind off it)
sin and be able to deny
(see if you can take your mind off it)

for my lonely brother
there’s only one hope
in my lonely brother
there’s only one hope

for my lonely brother
there’s only one hope
in my holy order
there’s only one hope

give up your only peace of mind
return to the owner what you find
give up your only peace of mind
sin and be able to deny
sin and be able to deny
sin and be able to deny

(see if you can take your mind off it)

sin and be able to deny
sin and be able to deny
