The Believers

Go on ahead
I'll be with you soon enough
Go plant a garden
I'll be walking in the cool of the evening
In honeysuckle and willow trees

Tell them your story
Tell them what you dreamed about
Say you were lost
Then one day you were found
Someone brought you home again

The Believers
Know that it's going to get better
You better
Believe it
Cause no one here will ever forget you
Not let you
We're believers
Believers

Who was this child?
What was her journey?
Who were her people
What did she dream of?
How come we know nothing
When we say we know so much
About everything?

Step on a boat
Go on a journey
May it take you to heaven
And never bring you back again
So you no longer fear the boatman
Or the swell of the ocean

The Believers
Know that it's going to get better
You better
Believe it
Cause no one here will ever forget you
Not let you
We're believers
Believers

You wake up one morning
There's nothing you can do about it now
You know you're on one side or the other
You're just one more believer

This Is A Love Song

Morning comes
To the sound of bells
Lying beside me saying
You gotta be somewhere else
There was a time
Everything got lost
Everyone and everything we once loved
Was in the past

Cross the room and you're looking at me
You touch the handle and you're looking at me
Walking out that door still looking at me
There's something there's something
There's something you gotta know...

Morning comes
I like awake
I'm looking at you
I only know today you're going away
Look at your clothes
Scattered on the floor
Is nothing gonna change
Is nothing gonna change any more?

I get so worried when you don't appear
I get so worried when you come too near
I'm standing in your way
But you're still looking at me
There's something there's something
There's something you gotta know...

Love is enough
Love will do
Love lasts longer than
Anything you're going through
Love is enough
Love will do
Love lasts longer than
Anything you're going through
Love song
This is a love song
Love song
This is a love song

You gotta walk a long way
Walk a long way
Walk a long way
To come back again
You gotta walk a long way
Walk a long way
Walk a long way
To come back again

Love is enough
Love will do
Love lasts longer than
Anything you're going through
Love is enough
Love will do
Love lasts longer than
Anything you're going through
Love song
This is a love song
Love song
Love will do
Love lasts longer than
Anything you're going through
This is a love song
This is a love song
This is a love song
This is a love song


I Will And I Won't

Every time I think of that night
I still smile
I made you laugh and you were kind enough
To make me feel good for a while
At last when you fell in my arms
I knew you were glad
It was so good to learn how things
Take a turn to happy from sad

Will I tell you all the things if my heart says so?
Will I show you everything I want you to know?
Well, I will and I won't
I do and I don't

Every time I think of that night I still smile
If I laughed and showed kindness
It's cause you made me feel good for a while
In your arms this girl's chances
Didn't seem so bad
Though I didn't get you
I could not forget
To remember the night we had

Will I tell you all the things if my heart says so?
Will I show you everything I want you to know?
Well, I will and I won't
I do and I don't

Will I tell you all the things if my heart says so?
Will I show you everything I want you to know?
Well, I will and I won't
I do and I don't
Will I tell you all the things if my heart says so?
Will I show you everything I want you to know?
Well, I will and I won't
Do I love you
I do and I don't


Meteors

Had a friend in Fowlis
We'd stay up all night and talk it out
We'd never worry about things W
e shouldn't worry about

Like the cold dark river
Currents running so deep you can't see
How far down we'd be
Before they pulled us out

Oh, the toughest test
Is not the way we came into the world
Or the way it ends
Yes, our toughest test
Is what lies between and what we do
With the time we get

This world is beautiful
It's full of beautiful things
Tall trees and meadows and birds that sing

Oh, the toughest test
Is not the way we came into the world
Or the way it ends
Yes, our toughest test
Is what lies between and what we do
With the time we get

There's a hole in the middle
We've gotta work out how we're gonna fill it in

Oh, the toughest test
Is not the way we came into the world
Or the way it ends
Yes, our toughest test Is what lies between and what we do
With the time we get 


Gone

Were you there at the begining
Pacing the room, walking the streets?
Or in the shadows of the summer
Close by, but never seen

Were you the figure in the window
Seen from some speeding train?
Or accidently in some photograph
Of a half forgotten scene

Did I see you from the car
Round the corner out of reach?
Were you a swimmer or just a rock
Glanced in a moment from the beach
If I never see you one more time

I know you're in all my dreams
It would be everything
Just to see you back again
You're Gone
You're Gone

Everybody's lost
Not just the ones you know
We are reluctant travellers
All trying to get home

Did I see you from the platform
Slowly pulling out again
Did I pass you on the road
Almost forgotten by everyone...?

If I never see you one more time
I know you're in all my dreams
It would be everything
Just to see you back again
You're Gone
You're Gone 


What I Left Out

Is this the common cup?
Every one drinks once
Or am I the odd one out?
Laughing at danger and saying...
Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right

I want to sing and I want to shout
She keeps making me what I'm all about
I've been given the benefit of the doubt
She's got me wondering what I left out

I told her everything
Knew every word was true
I wanna be just and kind
God knows I tried and failed
So many times trying to do it right
So many times but I won't be denied

I want to sing and I want to shout
She keeps making me what I'm all about
I've been given the benefit of the doubt
She's got me wondering what I left out

Sometimes the light's too cruel
You put the truth behind you
Hoping it can't find you

Waiting to sing, waiting to shout
She keeps making me what I'm all about
I've been given the benefit of the doubt
She's got me wondering what I left out
She's got me wondering what I left out


A Boy

I first met you on the road
Everyone was rushing past
And you were going slow
You seemed to make me all I should be
Having watched it all on the movies and on tv
I met somebody else
Who spun me around and around
And that made all the difference to me

We were young once
Don't pretend it didn't happen to you
We thought we had it all to come
So what's a boy supposed to do?

We got into your old car
Drove about as fast as it would go and just as far
Till, before we even knew we came
Up to the end of the road
Long before we meant to
I found somebody else
Who spun me around the town
And that made all the difference to me

We were young once
Don't pretend it didn't happen to you
We thought we had it all to come
So what's a boy supposed to do?


Birds

We were the sailors in the summer
In the winter we climbed the hills
We were swimmers for a season
Even out to sea you'd see us

We left footsteps on the beaches
Trails of sand back to the road
There's nothing left there to teach us
Only the knowledge of your going

Were we folks you recognised
When we came into your view?
Did you notice who we were
Or were we strange shapes in truth?


Maybe it was how the light fell
Maybe just the time of day
Perhaps a storm had just passed over
Or perhaps we were never there
The land will surely come

One day we're gonna be free
One day we're gonna be free
One day we're gonna be free
As the birds

We were sailors in the summer
In the winter we stayed in
No one heard us break the water
Or saw our shapes on the horizon

We were strangers on the coast
Outsiders to the land
No one thought to ask us questions
No one thought to understand

We were prisoners to the city
We had nowhere else to go
All our dreams like fallen leaves
On some unremembered road
Sometimes no land would come

One day we're gonna be free
One day we're gonna be free
One day we're gonna be free
As the birds

We're high above jail walls and windows
We're high above the waves of worry
We're floating on the wind
Cause nothing can begin
To make us want to land again

One day
One day
One day we're gonna be free
One day we're gonna be free
One day we're gonna be free
One day we're gonna be free
As the birds 


You Can't Know Everything

I wish I was a painter now
I'd paint all of this somehow
Words just don't come quick enough
To catch that weak winter light
Leaking in from above

The rain's gone off for a while
Probably coming back in style
Short glimpses of near perfection
Thanks, but I'll walk and keep my coat on

You can't know everything
You're such an innocent soul
You can't learn anything
Unless you let somebody show you
And you'll not know everything
Even if you started right now
You must trust someone
Cause someday darling trust's all you know

Here comes those sirens again
Or is it just my dreams that they're in?
Racing towards and ending
When everything seems to be beginning

You can't know everything
You're such an innocent soul
You can't learn anything
Unless you let somebody show you
And you'll not know everything
Even if you started right now
You must trust someone
Cause someday darling trust's all you know


Delivery Man

I give you everything I can
But I don't get anything back from you
There's something in the way you sing
The words but somehow it lacks the bitter truth
I'm here singing you're there watching
But I've been in these songs too long
I know you love them more than I ever could
But that's cause you never stood where I stood
In amongst the heartache
Down around the sorrow saying I love you
Saying it right out loud..
Singing there or being here...
Two different things we need to realise but I.
I''m the delivery man
Taking round things I don't own
To folks who can afford them
Cause I can't
I'm just the delivery man

I can't tell you what to think or do
I'm just a singer of songs
In the middle of it all, when it all comes down
I can't tell right from wrong
In amongst the heartache
Down around the sorrow
Saying I love you, saying it right out loud...
Singing there or being here
Two different things we need to realise but I...

I'm the delivery man
Taking round things I don't own
To folks who can afford them
Cause I can't I'm just the delivery man
I'm going round the town
Can't take it back
Can only give it out
Cause I know what I'm not and what I am
I'm just the delivery man

I'm going round the town
Can't take it back
Can only give it out
Cause I know what I'm not and what I am
I'm just the delivery man

l'm going round the town
Can't take it back
Can only give it out
Cause I know what I'm not and what I am
I'm just the delivery man


Come Awake

When the daylight comes
And come it will
I'll get all my things
And creep down the hall
I'll light that ring
For my first cigarette
Walking out to the morning
Pulling on your jacket

I can no longer watch
I can no longer wait
I can no longer hope
I have come awake

That persistent sun
Will warm my face
Lighten my steps
Till hours later
I'll come back
Throw my coat on the floor
We'll talk tomorrow
When tonight is over

I can no longer watch
I can no longer wait
I can no longer hope
I have come awake
