LYRICS

 

1. HOME IS WHERE

 

Wait a minute, let’s go back to the beginning

 

To the place where we were talking about our love

 

And all the things that you and I are made of

 

Now we’re in it and I know that you are busy

 

Does it have to take a message from above

 

For us to take a walk back where we came from?

 

 

 

What about this house we’re building

 

Wet with sweat and tears

 

It keeps on hanging over me

 

Working late at night no sleeping, barely stop to breathe

 

We’ve got only pennies here but big dreams

 

 

 

There’s a window and your kids are climbing through it

 

And you gotta help them do it as best you can

 

It’s done with all the wisdom that we can muster

 

There’s their future, it’s coming fast inside their faces

 

Growing tall and going places like new men

 

Remember when this all began?

 

 

 

What about this earth we’re leaving

 

Sooner every year

 

It’s turning right in front of me

 

Remember how you love the scenery from a Vermont chair?

 

 

 

We’ve got only minutes here

 

Tender years

 

Remember dear

 

I’m counting every scene

 

 

 

Home, home is where the heart is

 

And oh, they never should be parted

 

Come home

 

 

2. IF I SING

 

If I sing will you come out, come out from your hiding place

 

And show your face and everything you are

 

Will you stand and deliver everything you’re given by grace

 

And not erase your bright and shining star?

 

 

 

I know it’s cold, you feel alone, but love is all around you (oh I feel it)

 

Don’t give up now, time will show how the sun is gonna shine through you

 

 

 

There’s a face in the mirror coming ever clearer

 

Do you see it, too?  It’s staring right at you.

 

Every step that you take, well it could be a mistake

 

But time will surely show no matter how it breaks or what you blow

 

Inaction is a waste

 

 

 

I know it’s cold, you feel alone, but love is all around you (oh I feel it)

 

Don’t give up now, time will show how, the sun is gonna shine through you

 

 

 

Oh my heaven I’m in luck because you haven’t given me up for all I’ve done

 

Now’s the time to step on up

 

Cause I could stay stuck under this rock or greet the sun

 

 

 

I know it’s cold, you feel alone, but love is all around you (oh I feel it)

 

Don’t give up now, time will show how the sun is gonna shine through you (do believe it)

 

 

 

If I sing will you come out, come out from your hiding place

 

And show your face and everything you are?

 

3. DAISY

 

She’s got a gun in her head, makes me hide

 

She shoot words like lead ‘tween my eyes

 

And I can’t defend, can’t deny

 

What it is I am to despise

 

 

 

I don’t know how I should go from here

 

I’m 10 feet down into the ground in fear

 

 

 

It’s coming down

 

 

 

I’ll make my bed like it’s all I have then I’m dead

 

But I won’t go where thoughts they grow so deep

 

I will not fade though each new day she keeps…

 

 

 

…it coming down

 

Her faded clout is run aground

 

 

 

All of the treasure you told were nothing that I could behold

 

Yeah and I haven’t got any (3x) of what you said you gave

 

 

 

It’s coming down

 

Her faded clout

 

Has run aground

 

Ooooo I’m out

 

4. HAUNTED

 

Haunted, haunted by the weight of loving

 

You sat grinning at my gate hovering

 

I walked through you

 

I’ll find my way but haunted

 

 

 

Tender, tender are the dreams you’re sending

 

Tokyo cell phones at the window bending my view

 

I hear your voice, I’m haunted

 

 

 

Haunted by the weight of loving

 

Haunted by the wait for you

 

Haunted by the weight of loving you

 

 

 

Haunted, haunted by the dreams unending

 

I sat out upon the roof there mending my noose

 

And I hear your voice, I’m haunted

 

 

 

Tell me time will measure and I’ll show you how I’m weathered in the morning

 

Tell me it’s forever and I’ll show you another storm that we’ve walked through

 

We’ll find our way but haunted

 

 

 

Haunted by the weight of lovin

 

Haunted by the wait for you

 

Haunted by the weight of loving you

 

 

 

It’s not the emptiness that fills my bed

 

It’s not the tender voice that baits my head

 

Each time I wake into the day ahead I crawl through

 

It’s not the measure of the time gone by

 

It’s not the twinkle of another guy

 

Just that I feel that I am barely alive without you

 

 

 

Cause I’ve been haunted by the weight of lovin

 

Haunted by the wait for you

 

Haunted by the wait for lovin

 

Haunted by the wait for you

 

Haunted by the wait for lovin

 

Haunted by the wait for you

 

Haunted by the wait for lovin

 

Haunted by the wait for you

 

Haunted by the weight of you

 

Haunted by the wait for

 

 

5. TRICKY WORLD

It’s a tricky world you live in

It’s your God-given right to give in and go on and grow

 

I can tell that you’re hard of hearing

 

All the things that your heart’s been feeling so long, don’t it show

 

 

 

Tell me in the winter will we be alright

 

When snow falls down and covers up

 

Our only light to drive at night?

 

 

 

There are mountains worth the climbing

 

Then there are times you best see lying down

 

on the ground

 

So the road may be long and nameless

 

Sew a seam of a thousand faces and sounds all around

 

 

 

I tell you in the winter we will be all right

 

As snow falls down and covers us

 

We’ll slow the drive

 

And greet the night

 

As stars go hide

 

And everything turns to white, to white

 

 

 

Hand me over the wheel

 

It will be all right

 

Climb in back and steal dreams of sweet daylight

 

Hand me over the wheel

 

It will be all right

 

Climb in back and steal dreams so sweet
