Wild blue skies, river running free takin' me down to the clear blue sea Wonderin' where the cold wind blows? You'll never know The joker wares his snake hat smug up in the sun Pouring out his insides, empty meanings that were done Its all his washed up ego lets him do to pass the time Fixed up in a mindless wasted bin-bag covered rhyme He's got no time for reason, its all he can do To make up and believe in some other bodies truth Dont ask the joker why, he'll only lie Mary Mary cant understand Thorns in her pocket, holes in her hands A true believer down on her knees Mary Mary who do you please? You can love her or leave her But she'll never be alone The stars believe her Its all she needs to know Dont ever even try You'll only wonder why Father Father so high up above Come on tell me who do you love Come on tell me who do you love Father Father so high up above Always fighting for forgiveness Its such a brilliant waste Sooth you're troubled mind With that old familiar rage Father Father what do you find When you're all alone? Wild blue skies, river running free takin' me down to the clear blue sea Wonderin' where the cold wind blows? You'll never know

Lets get down to the place we know Cut some ice with a fiddle and bow spend some time at the old crow show Drink a little wine with the people we know Upside down but still above Call it pain, call it love but People that jump from church to church You know they wont amount to much Lets get down, down to the river Build ourselves a fire Get on in out the freezin' cold Sit and watch those flames unfold Wait a while on the other side Leave with something new Place your dreams in a paper cup We'll send them back to you My old friend used to say Whole lot of people gonna come your way Everyones got something to say Better do it your own way Leave it out with the setting sun Go out strong have a little fun This time around gonna do it right See it on through to the morning light Lets get down, down to the river Build ourselves a fire Get on in out the freezin' cold Sit and watch those flames unfold Wait a while on the other side Leave with something new Place your dreams in a paper cup We'll send them back to you Lets get down to the place we know Cut some ice with a fiddle and bow spend some time at the old crow show Drink a little wine with the people we know Upside down but still above Call it pain, call it love but People that jump from church to church You know they wont amount to much

Fever 03:27
Some day soon, somethings gonna give Peace of mind, its in the love that you live One way or the other Hey little sunshine set me free Into your heart now let me be Oh what a lesson to learn when your promises burn On like a fever On like a fever Warm your bones like a brand new day Something goods gonna come your way Its one way or the other Hey little sunshine dont you know Take a little time to let it grow Oh what a lesson to learn when your promises burn On like a fever On like a fever If there's a little cloud over you Just stand back and let it through Then you'll see a better day Let the wind of promise chase away Some day soon, somethings gonna give Peace of mind, its in the love that you live One way or the other Hey little sunshine what d'ya say nows the time so lets get away Oh what a lesson to learn when your promises burn On like a fever On like a fever On like a fever On like a fever On like a fever

River Red 04:45
So where do I go, when I sleep colours come back to me once more And i can see just like before, Fever like a new game, let it rise let it go To the back yards of all the people that you now Just like when I met you I remember you said Come to my new place down by the River Red Hush now, no need to cry There's a reason you're here Like the sun in the sky Lightin' up what you fear Like a moon on a sea, You've seen it before Go tell the powers that be You ain't going back no more Just like when I met you I remember you said Come to my new place down by the River Red We'll dream all our worry away Down by the river stay We can dream all our worry away Down by the river stay You take me far far away, my fever gettin' better A little closer every day, my burnin' desire I like the things that you say, it doesnt really matter We're all goin' the same way, happy even after Just like when I met you I remember you said Come to my new place down by the River Red We'll dream all our worry away Down by the river stay We can dream all our worry away Down by the river stay All our worry away, we can dream all our worry away We can dream all our worry away We can dream all our worry away We can dream all our worry away We can dream all our worry away We can dream all our worry away We can dream all our worry away We can dream all our worry away Down by the river stay Down by the river stay

Tell me how you know it grows my dipping deep, all it shows Beside your sweet bitter bows, all you light and shadow glows Inside its you, let it loose, pass on by, hang the truth Next when I'm alone with you I'll turn my heart adhere to you Oh Little swallow sitting on my window Takin' time to know which way the wind blows Tell me tell me what must i do Little swallow sitting on my window Takin' time to listen to the rail fall What must i do, Oh tell me tell me what must i do You walk to me so honestly, with all your smiles cautiously Asked me then if now was right, turn it all around tonight And if i said i only would, burn my thrown of silver wood You'd cast your eye to all who see, show them how to make believe Little swallow sitting on my window Takin' time to know which way the wind blows Tell me tell me what must i do Little swallow sitting on my window Takin' time to listen to the rail fall What must i do, Oh tell me tell me what must i do Shadows block the light beneath your sisters silver door You've seen the world from inside out, lyin' on the floor With your mother's hands, bruised from working 9 to sixty-four Your heart reflects on a piece of glass Another night before Oh Little swallow sitting on my window Takin' time to know which way the wind blows Tell me tell me what must i do Little swallow sitting on my window Takin' time to listen to the rail fall What must i do, Oh tell me tell me tell me what must I Tell me tell tell me what must I Tell me tell me tell me what must i do

Butterfly 03:27
Wake up little butterfly, wave your wings and fly high Wake up little butterfly, wave your wings and fly high When you're tapping on her window, tell her from me You're the sweetest little butterfly i think i'm gonna see When you wake up butterfly, pass this on for me You sing that song so sweet, sing it one more time Sing that song so sweet, sing it one more time Coz when you sing it oh so softly and i hear all of those words I'm thinkin that this must be the sweetest thing i ever heard Sing that little sweet song, sing it one more time I woke up this morning, fell right straight out of bed Got no way of getting you girl out of my head I've got no way of knowing and its waring me thin I keep on thinkin you with him And i just can seem to get myself together Hate the idea of needing you For everywhere i go i see you there Smell your scent in the open air And it makes me cold as my sweat gets harder Cant catch my breath my hearts beating faster As the black wall hits me in the eye i think i'm gonna Wake up little butterfly, wave your wings and fly high Wake up little butterfly, wave your wings and fly high When you're tapping on her window, tell her from me You're the sweetest little butterfly i think i'm gonna see When you wake up butterfly, pass this on for me

Had and idea inside my head An idea I wanted to remember But something took its place instead Pushing me further and further I went down to a dark dark place A place inside over and over Nowhere to run nowhere to hide And now its comin' over and over But I know what i've got to do Keep on sayin' i'll see it through Dont give up when I fall down Coz its comin' around and around So here you are back at my door Comin' around just like before Same old thing far as i can see Reachin' out for a hold on me But it feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong But I know what i've got to do Keep on sayin' i'll see it through Dont give up when I fall down Coz its comin' around and around There's a cold wind callin' out your name Says to believe And when the cpld rain washes away What will it leave? Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right cant be wrong Feels so right

Let it Show 03:05
Purple dreams Broken throwns Mixed up tricks n bricks n bones Mothers smiles Childhood homes Secret dreams Colours shown Take it back to what you know Sit n watch the colour grow You live your life do or die Born to survive You have soul inside of you Let it show, oh little darlin' Let it show Summer suns, Plastered knees Kickin' around Patched up jeans Sittin' on a passin' breeze Climbin' high Swingin' trees Take it back to what you know Sit n watch those feelings grow You live your life do or die Born to survive You have soul inside of you Let it show, oh little darlin' Let it show And then you came into my life Opened up the door Showed it to me, we lay on the floor You are my savin' grace With you its easy Leaves no trace Grown up sense Dance room floors Sippin' in through one way doors Killin' time a little more Singin' rhymes with the girl next door Take it back to what you know Sit n watch the colour grow You live your life do or die Born to survive You have soul inside of you Let it show, oh little darlin' Let it show

Its been a long time comin' Now there's nothin' left to say We used to be so close together Now all that seems so far away I know our love was never easy But it always found a way A simple reason to remember Was all it needed yesterday You've been so long now runnin' Your feet don't touch the ground After all this time you've done now Can you tell me what you've found A simple reason to remember Was all it needed yesterday I know our love was never easy But it always found a way Would you settle for a smile Or are you better on your own If only for a little while Would it kill you to know Will you take what you find Or look to the stars Ground in your mind Is that what you are? A simple reason to remember Was all it needed yesterday I know our love was never easy But it always found a way Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded You may not find you're so fine now you're finally... Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded You may not find you're so fine now you're finally free All night long dancing in the pouring rain This time around now you know you know your name All night through waiting for a chance to shine Now you know you know your mind Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded You may not find you're so fine now you're finally... Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded You may not find you're so fine now you're finally... Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded You may not find you're so fine now you're finally... Shot through the heart with a gun that was loaded You may not find you're so fine now you're finally free Been a long time, been long time, been a long long time
