Track Name: You Will Become
In time, this won't even matter,
This chapter will be long under grass,
And we'll talk about everything till its easier,
Your beauty is nothing compared to what

You Will Become,
You Will Become,
You Will Become,
In Time, Become

And we talked about talk of a gold ring
And you brought me one step closer to the heart of things
And we talked about everything until we laughed about it
Your honesty is nothing compared to what

You Will Become,
You Will Become,
You Will Become,
In Time, Become
Track Name: Maybe Not Tonight
Echoes of another time, Playing lightly on my mind
There’s many rivers still to cross, to temper the bitterness and loss
And though what you say is true, this might be it for me and you
Maybe we should draw that line, maybe another time
Well I want to do what's right, but maybe not tonight

Memories of another town, those pretty eyes that pretty frown
And in the long grass where we lay, and let the whole world fall away
And though in time we've walked apart, you were always in my heart
Maybe we should say goodbye, but maybe not tonight

I remember you were just a child, burning brightly and running wild
We married on an August night, no priest, no church just a big moon shining bright
And maybe we should be moving on, and figure what is done is done
Maybe we should break those vows, but maybe not right now
Maybe we should do what's right, but baby not tonight
Maybe we should both just do what's right, but baby not tonight
Track Name: Talking With the Wolves
Simon, you are the model of your age
Don't let the bastards take the stage
They don't love you
And Hedi, you are a pure light on the waves
Don't let them turn us into slaves
They don't care for you,
Like I do

And love that’s given freely
It doesn't die, it only changes
And love that's taken easy
It has to hide, in these exchanges

Glory, don't get trampled under dust
Don't tell yourself your right so much
Sometimes words won't be enough
When your talking, talking with the wolves
Talking talking
And they don't even notice you

And love thats given freely
It doesn't die, it only changes
And love that's taken easy
It has to hide, in these exchanges
Track Name: High Hope
I’m working on a high hope and if it all works out,
You might just see me, or hear from me in a while
I’m gonna make it across this tightrope, and I’m coming for my prize,
No more I'll be waiting round while life just passes by

Maybe when our hearts have re-aligned
Maybe when we've both had some time
I’m gonna see you there
I’m gonna see you there

There, where we can be natural
There

I've been living in a half life,
Not sure which way to turn,
Why must a man lose everything,
To find out what he wants
I’m gonna wait until it feels right
And when that time has come
Wild horses won't keep me back
From where you've up and gone

Maybe when were both old and wise
Maybe when our hearts have had some time
I’m gonna see you there
I’m gonna see you there

There, where we can be natural
There, and after all we've seen, we can do anything
There, where your heart is strong, where we can go on and on
There, where the good times gone, where we are forever young
There, There, where your heart is strong, where we can go on and on
There, There, There
I’m gonna see you there
Track Name: Bird of Sorrow
Even if a day feels too long
If you feel like you can't wait another one
And you’re slowly giving up on everything
Love is gonna find you again
Love is gonna find you,
You better be ready then

You've been kneeling in the dark for far too long
You've been praying for that spark, but it hasn't come
Well I’m calling to you please, get off the floor
Love is gonna find you once more
Love is gonna find you,
You'd better be ready then

Tethered to a bird of sorrow,
A voice that’s buried in the hollow
You've given over to self deceiving
Your prostrate bowed but not believing
You've squandered more than you could borrow
Bet your joy on all tomorrows
For the hope of some returning
While everything around you is burning

Come on, we gotta get out, get out of this mess we've made
And still for all our talk, were both so afraid
Will we leave this up to chance like we do everything?
Love is gonna find us again
Love is gonna find us,
We'd better be ready then..

Tethered to a bird of sorrow,
A voice thats buried in the hollow
You've given over to self deceiving
Your prostrate bowed but not believing
You've squandered more than you could borrow
Bet your joys on all tomorrows
For the hope of some returning
While everything around you is burning
Well I’m not leaving you here
I’m not leaving you here
I’m not leaving

I’m hanging on
Track Name: The Storm, It's Coming
Breaking from the feast
From the decade of the beast
On a new road, with no true north I see

There's doubt in every face
And there's a liar on the stage
And what good is it, if he don't himself believe in it.

Every clap rings out a warning
Get ready for the storm, its coming
It’s coming

There's a slap back in the face
For a sin you can't erase
And a coin dropped in the box don't change the meaning

There's a storm and it’s raging
In the belly of the slave
And it's coming
It’s coming

And when the wind howls at your gate
Already it is too late,
It's coming
It’s coming
Track Name: Love Don't Leave Me Waiting
Lover, you've been hesitating
You've been hanging on for that sign too long
And lover, you've been leaving me waiting
And I don't know why, or what it is I've done

And love, don't leave me guessing
Oh love don't keep me here
Show yourself to me

And time, you've been a racing
You've been running out on me
And tongues, you've been a talking
You've been saying what you really mean

And love, don't leave me waiting
Oh lover, don't leave me here
And love, don't leave me guessing
Oh lover don't keep me here

Show yourself
Show yourself

And love, don't leave me waiting
Oh lover, don't keep me here
And love, don't leave me guessing
Oh lover don't keep me here

Show yourself to me
Track Name: What Are We Gonna Do
What are we gonna do
If we lose that fire?
What are we gonna do
If we start to doubt, if that fire goes out?

I don’t want to lose you
To some bullshit hurt that could have been helped
I’m trying to tell you something
A good heart is your greatest wealth
So what are we gonna do
If we lose that fire?
What are we gonna do
If we start to doubt
If that fire goes out?

I don’t want to change you
But you’re a long long way from the path you came
I’m trying to show you something
A good good heart will always find the way

What are we gonna do
If we lose that fire?
What are we gonna do
If you start to doubt, if that fire goes out?
Track Name: Races
Well if I win some races
That don't mean I’m fastest
And it don't mean I’m better than anyone

And if I ride some horses
With great speed over courses
It's just cause you waited for me at the line

Cause for you I could win
For you I could trust myself
For you I could throw with abandon
Old glories or fame to the wind

Cause I never left you
And you never let me go

And I again had the glory
I’d give it up gladly
Oh how we sucked in the limelight,
And left 'best friends' behind
Now come walk beside me
To the end of this story
And I'll let you go gently
Among your own kind

Cause for you I can win
For you I can trust myself
For you I could throw with abandon
Old glories and fame to the wind

Cause I never left you
And you never let me go

For you I will win
For you I will trust myself
For you I could throw with abandon
Old glories and everything to the wind

Cause I never left you
And you never let me go
I never left you
And you never let me go
Track Name: Philander
Stuck here in the corner
And I’m kissing my philander
She never says goodbye
Only see you later
Well I’m making this plan for you

Well I’m always gonna love you
And I’m always gonna stay
Here with my philander

Up here on this platter
And I’m laid out for philander

I'll star you in my movie
I’m making it now
So come on you little actor
Don't let me down philander

I’m always gonna love you
And I’m never gonna stray
I’m always gonna love you
And I’m always gonna stay

Here with my philander
Track Name: Song of Good Hope
Well if we're gonna make it
Across this river alive
You need to think like a boat
And go with the tide

And I know where you've been
Has really left you in doubt
Of ever finding a harbor
Or figuring this out

And your gonna need
All the help you can get
So lift up your arms now
And reach for it
And reach for it

Take your time babe
It’s not as bad as it seems
You'll be fine babe
It's just some rivers and streams in between
You and where you wanna be

Watch the signs now
You'll know what they mean
You'll be fine now
Just stay close to me
And may good hope
Walk with you through everything

Take your time babe
It’s not as bad as it seems
You'll be fine babe
It's just some rivers and streams in between
You and where you wanna be

Watch the signs now
You'll know what they mean
You'll be fine now
Just stay close to me
And may good hope
Walk with you through everything
May the song of good hope
Walk with you through everything
