Track Name: Game of Images
Game Of Images

Don't blame the same old lines,
Or that the right words will come in time.
High waves overtake the walls at night,
Breathe deep the old news revised.
The great storm can't hide,
The wind's grown deep and wild.

And I've only scratched the surface light.

Walk the line that I've strung between these two heights,
Underfoot the old world divides.

Walk me through this time.
Walk me through this time.
Walk the narrow line,
By the dawn light.

I've only begun to scratch the surface light and look behind.
Track Name: Role Reversal
Role Reversal

Luck won't change, time won't come,
The rifle-range asleep in the sun.
Wild at bay, chained to the start,
Mindless games played from the heart.

I'm miles away from where I'm bound
On the very young ground.
Silent sheets of rain wash down.

Behind cold rains mariners sleep,
Sharp sugarcane digs in deep.

But the moss has grown upon you now,
But can we turn it around?
Wildness on the scene surrounds.
Track Name: In The Morning Room, I Saw
In the Morning Room, I Saw

In the morning room, I saw
Tattered walls, I saw
The life of a dream, I recalled.
The land robbed of the scene, I saw.

And the leaves went combing by in the dawn, bye bye.

On the chatter of the lawn, I saw
With rumors in the wings, I saw
A pile of gilded things, so tall.
The lives that came and went, I saw.

And the old sleep in the grass before the sun,
It climbs over the fence, bye bye.

And the ladder it speaks to me
By the way it balanced on a tree.
Its time to run, its time to see
Things you can't or wont believe.
Track Name: Distant Shore
Distant Shore

Knock on the door and wait for the sound,
But I just don't know if I can be found.

Can you be that shore?
Be that shore anymore, distant shore
The channel can't be crossed,
I wait at the door of a distant shore.

Mind of a child, thoughts running wild,
I'm watching the road that I know you'll be on.

Can you be that shore?
Be that shore anymore, distant shore
The channel can't be crossed,
I wait at the door of a distant shore.

I wait at the door.
I wait at the door.
Track Name: The Water is Wide (Fred Neil)
The Water is Wide

The water is wide and I cannot cross over,
Nor do I have wings to fly.
Build me a boat that could carry two,
And both shall row my love and I.
There is a ship and she sails the seas.
She's burdened deep as deep can be.
But not as deep as the love I'm in,
And I know not if I sink or swim.
But love is gentle and love is kind,
As to a jewel when first it's new.
But love grows old and it fades with time,
And it fades away like morning dew.
Build me a boat that could carry two,
And both shall row my love and I.
Track Name: Where Do You Roam?
Where Do You Roam?

Where do you roam?
Where do you roam so far from home?
Where do you go my very soul?
Are you going alone?
Walking down that long country road.
Put on your shoes walk out the door.

Are you going alone?
Are you going alone?
Are you going alone?
Living without both on our own.

My feeling's only grown,
Though we've only met not long ago.

We've only met not long ago.
We've only met not long ago.
It didn't take long for us to know.
Our country fires at night set a glow.
Track Name: Right Before My Eyes
Right before My Eyes

Right before my eyes,
In a storm the rains will rise.
Take my advice,
Don't go through this twice.
The lake will turn to ice,
And so will I.
The lake will turn to ice,
And so will I.
Right before my eyes.
Right before my eyes.
Track Name: Runaway
Runaway

Everywhere I see you turnin',
Everywhere feet are burnin'.
I'm on this job but I never knew it,
I've got no work, I oughta do it.

Runaway
Runaway
Runaway
Runaway

Everywhere I see you turnin',
Everywhere feet are burnin'.
On this job, but i've got no money,
I got nowhere, I've got no one.

Runaway
Runaway

Runaway
Track Name: Soft Tears
Soft Tears

Soft tears coming out of your eyes,
Old fears of me leaving you behind.

But I'll see you at next Thanksgiving time,
Until then we'll hear the voice of singers,
And let it ease your mind.

Cut clear from all traces of ice,
Your heart wants to be close to mine.

But I'll see you at next Thanksgiving time,
Until then we'll hear the voice of singers,
And I won't leave you behind.
Track Name: Everybody in a Spell
Everybody in a Spell

Everybody in a spell,
Ask themselves, yeah "how you feel?"
Out on the hill in the light,
I've seen a film way too bright.
Good morning.

In the sun, in the sun.

Ask the white dove sailing through bright white lights.
Like the ones all around me.
Good morning.

In the sun, in the sun.
Track Name: I'm Gonna Leave You
I'm Gonna Leave You

Brother, I'm gonna leave you someday, someday.
Not for another, but for me to keep going further, I always need to.

And when those days came, oh they came!

We were strangers at our meeting and what came after was so easy.
We're getting into deeper meanings, we never knew we'd be receiving.

And when the winds would change, oh they changed!
