Blue Sky 04:05
Moline Saying what she didn't mean Making like a Dairy Queen Milking me when I was never gonna be the king Well, I swear She feathered up her little nest to treat me like a little guest She got the best and I swallowed all the rest All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round To keep the rain from coming down I fell Ran off half cocked pell mell Got caught smoking in her little hell Devil or angel, I could never tell I jumped fence Now I'm living in the present tense No more little accidents No more sideshow me the main event All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round To keep the rain from coming down All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round I need to know, I need to go No rain No rain I got caught in the rain before Telling you baby, won't get caught no more All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round All she needed was a blue train leaving town All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round I need to know, I need to go All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round All she needed was a blue train leaving town All she needed was a blue sky hangin' 'round All she needed All she needed All she needed

You make a lot of money She makes a lot of time Counts it out and hands it over to you Never asking nothing in return 'Cuz she trusts you Believes in you too You go around in circles She goes home alone You could be there with her But she's still on her own She's not looking for miracles She's just looking for love All she wants is you, because that's enough She makes it all so easy You make it all so hard You've give her dirt And tie her to the earth She plants another flower in the sand You got all the best excuses in the world But they're not reasons They don't even rhyme She's a good woman But you treat her like a bad little girl She's a loser In your little game The victim of your big crime She's always trying to work it out You're only trying just to fit her in To your self-serving plans and schemes She thinks you're worth it So she hangs around And hangs another day on shattered hopes And battered little dreams You trample down your dirt And harvest weeds Her love grows And she waters it so carefully You scatter all her seedlings With one wave of your hand And she plants another flower in the sand

Woke up in the morning and it felt like the black of night Tumbled out of bed, tripped on my Bible, stumbled over the light Blinded by the break of day I shut my eyes, I was alone Couldn't say my prayers Good God Almighty Where's my telephone? And now I know Now I know Know what you meant when you told me You wanted to hold me And hold me Hold me forever Hold me and never Tell me you'll ever Let me go No I did not know I didn't understand the plan You had for me And it isn't that I don't believe I do believe that you really love me Yeah, but how do I reciprocate When there's nothing good in me? Say it's so Say it's so Say it till I really hear it when you say Don't fear it Let go And now I know Now I know Know what you meant when you told me You wanted to hold me And hold me Hold me forever Hold me and never Tell me you'll ever Let me go Crash me, wash me up on your shore Drifted way too far from my moorings and more Overboard the oars went Relentless was the roll Of the restless sea set me free from its treacherous shoals Don't let me go don't let me Don't let me go Now that I have run this boat ashore don't let me go Now I know, I know I know you like never before You wait you waited for me forevermore Now I know...

Look in my eyes again As blue as they've ever been but so far down is not the end I got a little crazy Left you out in a purple haze Now and then, I wonder How you've been, babe? Will you want it Will you believe it Knowing you'll live for ever and ever never alone in a life going home is the best I have... is the best I have... I had a dream, I saw you Left me in tears and swollen eyes Come back baby while there's still time Please let me hold you and tell you that all that I have in hope for you One more time together I'd think about that if you wanted CHORUS Come to me, I want you to come back and see Take the lovin' when you come to me, you come to me It's possible to feel little lost 'til your heart unwinds Give it time

*It was long ago Seems like yesterday Saw you standing in the rain Then I heard you say I want to love but it comes out wrong I want to live but I don't belong I close my eyes and I see Blood and roses Love flowers in the springtime October we were wed In wintertime the roses died The blood ran cold And then she said I want to love but it comes out wrong I want to live but I don't belong I close my eyes and I see Blood and roses **Ashes for your veil Ashes for your veil Veil of ashes Veil of ashes Veil of ashes

Snowblind 03:55
I'm snowblind Whooooo snowblind I'm so blind And I don't know what I'm doing It's so bright and so white Won't you stop the light I hate how it shines Well, it's in my face, it's in my eyes In my face, in my eyes and It shines day and night, day and night When day is night and black is white Everything looks like a fright Wrong is right and day is night Night and day Wish you were the one Wish wish wish You were, you were, you were the one Night and day underneath the sun I wish I could see the sun But I'm snowblind
