Broken
I heard the words you had said were
Lying on your deathbed
And I can’t sympathize with what you’re saying

You did wrong, you realize
You took the stars from his eyes
Left him growing up uneven

You been drinking, no surprise
And you dismissed all your alibis
Gave no thought or rhyme or reason

Where is your soul now?
Where is your soul now?
Where is your soul now?

And the wind it blows

Love comes – a silent sound
Those buried beneath the ground
Give and take a bitter kiss, deceiving
Clergy man behind church walls
Light comes through like a fireball
Give us a sermon to believe in

Where is your soul now?
Where is your soul now?
Where is your soul now?

And the wind it blows

Go to bed with dreams at night
The morning brings you in the light
Touch your own body just to feel skin
You been thinking about it all
Light comes through and burns us all
Ready now to begin

Where is your soul now?
Where is your soul now?
Where is your soul now?
And the wind, it blows
Wind it blows

Canada
Come from within
Wherever you’ve been
I know you’re not sleeping
Face what has to come
Challenge what you’ve done
Before the devil comes creeping
It’s never been like this before
And I can justify what for

When you were younger you filled up your hunger
With leaving
Innocent eyes full of surprise
You were gleaming
It’s never been like this before
I can justify what for

Canada…

Was it something that they said
That made you slow down?
Innocence taken, turned you around
You were misplaced in this town

Time will heal, time comes ‘round

Crosswind
You go the distance, the whole country down
Careless and fearless more
You’d say your prayers if only you could
Leaving the very first life

Would it be forward to ask for change?
Three thousand miles from the firing range
Here in the city, the lights are abound
Come up and see me if you’re in town

And when you were leaving
It was never for good
That’s what was said at the station
I saw out your sister and brother and sons
And all my friends and my relations

Some will adore you, others ignore you
The rest will do as they will
Visit your aunt by the ocean
Visit your aunt down by the ocean

There’s more to their deserts than the absence of rain
All kinds of madness I hear exclaimed
Here in the city lights are abound
Come up and see me if you’re in town
Come up and see me if you’re in town
Come up and see me if you’re in town

Do what you do
Ferry boats have sailed and I’m following your trail
Truth did arise, but the water’s too deep
Eyes upon a scale trying to keep a balance
Walking on shells this time

Cannonball has been let go
Still there’s fire in the hole now
Police captain and his crew
They’ve done the best that they can do
The rest is building up in my mind

When it all comes down
You do what you do to yourself
Most of the time

And I’m not trying to make a scene
Diggin’ deeper I’m coming clean
And it’s all mine
It’s all mine
This time

Lighthouse captain’s giving clear
The signal’s coming through
I’m waiting through the dark
And I am carried by blue
Eyes upon a scale finding a balance
Ringing on bells this time

Ringing on bells this time

When it all comes down
You do what you do to yourself
Most of the time
Most of the time

Most of the time
She comes creeping in

Hollow Moon
There’s a hole in the sky
With flames coming through
Dims my vision and the rains coming too
There’s a rainbow on the hill
Colours I have set aside for you now

Must be an angel, maybe it’s the devil too

Out at sea there’s a burning light
Been there all day now on comes the night
And there’s a hollow moon hanging there for you now

Must be an angel, maybe it’s the devil too

And there’s a calm to the night
Takes me by the hand
Dancing with seagulls upon the strand
And I’m pulling in the stars
There’s so much farther I can reach with you now

Must be angel, maybe it’s the devil too

And there’s a hole in the sky
With flames coming through
Dims my vision and the rain’s coming too
There’s a rainbow on the hill
With colours I have set aside for you now

Must be an angel, maybe it’s the devil too
Must be an angel, maybe it’s the devil too

Marjan
The winter is leaving
The rivers are grieving through the fields
The rain that’s falling
Is a ghost that has been calling for years

I wish for you the best
As you’re leaving your nest
You’re going over now

When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?

Spring comes through
And I think of you and there are flowers
Shadows from the sun have covered what we’ve done to each other
Time takes time…I give you mine ‘cause I love you

When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?

Dismantled
Lift your head from it’s weary state
See you rise and fall and hesitate
You’re gathering your pieces, ready to go now

Finish your drinks and here’s to them all
Shattered and broken by the pain of it all
Things you remember, the words you cannot recall

You’ve been uptown, downtown and everywhere in between
Seen your upside, downside, all you have been

And I see your picture frame on our mantelpiece
I sometimes I imagine you strolling down urban streets
But it’s over now

Who was there to remember? They carried you down
Did you fall on a friend or straight to the ground?
The message came over the presence of your sons
And time is a thief, time is a storm
Comes with you even when you’re alone
Here’s to the times I’ve spent in my mind with you

You’ve been uptown, downtown and everywhere in between
Seen your upside, downside all you have been
You been uptown, downtown and everywhere in between
See your upside, downside all you have been

And I see your picture frame on a mantelpiece
I sometimes imagine you strolling down urban streets
And I see your picture frame on a mantelpiece
But it’s over now
It’s over now

Lift your head from its weary state
Seen you rise and fall and hesitate
Gathering your pieces ready to go now
You’re ready to go

Old Clock
Is it the rain that gets you,
or that they won’t let you crawl out of your shell?
Pick up from where you fell
Look out on the road
The road you’re going down

Was it a cold hand that shook you,
or a storm that took you?
Did it turn your world around?
Were you lost or were you found?
Rise up like the wind
I can see that you’re coming down

And there’s a little more to lose
A little less to prove
To anyone
I know

Old clock
Tick tock
I can’t make you stop
I know
Oh yes, I know

And did you play on to Jesus
Believe all that they said?
Or did you hide your own ideas,
and crawl back into bed?

Were you staring at the ceiling?
Were you thinking only of her?

Or is it shame that breaks you?
That they could never make you
Crawl out from under a stone
So you’re never all alone
You gotta rise up on this day
I can see that you’re coming around

And there’s a little more to lose
A little less to prove
To anyone
I know

Old clock
Tick tock
I can’t make you stop
I know

And there’s a little more to lose
There’s a little less to prove
To anyone
that I know

Old clock
Tick tock
I can’t make you stop
I know

Oh yes how I know
Yes I know

All Fired up
You speak in silence harder than steel
Is this the way it’s gonna be?
Is your mind made up of exactly how you feel?
Are you looking to make a new deal?
Your friends have taken liberty
Telling me what’s been going on

And oh I’m all fired up
taking the last bus home

Old man’s been drinking
Mother’s in tears
Brother’s all fucked up and has been for years
First time I met you, you were cold as a stone
Coming down from the high to escape from your home

And oh I’m all fired up
taking the last bus home

Here you go again
saying you don’t need anybody
We’re all tired of you sitting still
Always looking over your shoulder
We’ve had our fill of your absentee skill
Is the blood in your veins getting colder?

Rosanna
Rosanna
Rosanna

Taking the last bus home
Taking the last bus home
Taking the last bus home

Oh I’m all fired up
Taking the last bus home

Center St.
Summer falls, winter crawls in darkness
Step inside, whatever keeps you warm
And it’s a long way back to the center
And you can’t stay here
You can’t stay here

Once you reached and stopped the stars from falling down
You put them back and then you stopped the star from shining on
And it’s a long road to the hills I’m climbing now
But you can’t stay here
No you can’t stay here, no no no

And angels they have no wings
And there’s no one singing in heaven
When you fall between the cracks
You see that hell is boiling over

So many times you packed your things
And you stored them in a lover
And now you’re falling true on someone else
And there is nowhere to take cover

But you can’t go there
No you can’t go there, no no no
