So it's grey, well so are my favorite cities
And we have, we have all the time in the world here
We'll just stay tucked in the shade and our eyes they can't be blinded
We'll just stay tucked in the shade
So it's grey, well so are my favorite cities
And the sky on such a memorable night
And we have, we have all the time in the world here
That's a lie, that's a lie...


. . .



We pried open my window
Let the summer fush in
And we laughed with the new air
Now i lay and watch the green leaves
Dance and whisper sweet breath
A promise of a new year
On this day, we were born into the new year
And after the winter broke
We held hands and we ran
And we agreed that it had been a long one


. . .



They're seven days below us
That keep me hovered above the ground
And nights just blend into the morning
Definition is the first to go down
If i were to stay here between us
I might forget where i'm bound
So i can't stay in between us
I guess i'll walk away
And here to read the future
But forced to breathe out the past
And too many conversations
To uncover what was purposefully lost showing the guidance that we lack
And we used to be so wistful
I guess we feel it's safer holding back
If i were to stay here between us
I might forget where i'm bound
So i can't stay in between us
I guess i'll walk away


. . .



Just an hour and we'll be home
With my family that i chose
You're my family
And on the pavement still gripping the phone
You came and wrapped your arms around my soul
And we were shaking and you're so much a part of me
And so this is why i'm here
When we called you
You came so fast
And sat beside me while hours and days past
I'll always thank you for that
And there you were
With your heart made of gold
So strong, the only thing holding us up
And we knew you would always be so close
And so this is why i'm here
And then there was you
You always made us laugh
And you would help us to find the right path
And there is no one as full of life
And so this is why i'm here


. . .



And you tread on the water
When you know you can touch the bottom now
It's the southern way, said your mother,
'Stay in shallow, shallow water
Don't touch the ground'
But then a slithering, sliding form
Catches you before you reach the shore
And as he strikes, full of venom
You reach out towards the trouble
You've got him now, but how?
And you thrust him to the sky
Arms raised high, you make a y
There is no fear, there is no pain inside
As you twist and write
This is how you remember yourself
Arms raised high, needing no help
And ou know you can't keep this steady pose
You must release him somehow
But as you loosen your hold
The fight you felt, it is old
It's over now
His body, lifeless and cold
You throw him down
And you raise your arms up to the sky
Raised high, you make a y
There is no fear, there is no pain inside
As the sun still shines on these drying lines
This is how you remember yourself
Arms raised to heaven, needing no help


. . .



I never expected you to love me
The way i loved you
To have you near
Was all
I wanted
Just to have you near
It's funny how you can forget there's a world outside yourself
Where the trees keep growing and the cars keep moving
Without you there
Land it's funny how you can forget there's a world outside yourself
Where the one who loves you keeps on living
Without you there


. . .



I'm saving all i'm not giving
But it's overflowing, evaporating in the air
As i'm walking, i know i'm not breathing, i'm not breathing only air
It's filled with words once spoken by people everywhere
And i can hear all the whispers that have lived a thousand years
It just took me being open for them to reach my eager ears
Now they've reached my eager ears
And i hope i'll be ready
When my light, when my life divides


. . .



With the brushing of our shoulders
I lived a life with you
We had a son or daughter who had my eyes
And your laughter echoed after you
All of this in a brief stare
A feleeting glimpse of happiness shared
That made our bodies burn and shiver
As we passed each other unaware
I am not to think of your face, of your name
For when i do, you are there
Lying next to another
I can only wonder
Lesse mon cour vous abondonne
Depuis je suis encore jeune


. . .



You held my hand
Led me to the water
You pushed me in
I went under
They were your firm hands
That made me falter
You held my hand
Led me to the altar
You wept for me
Lord, absolve her
They were your weak hands
That made me stronger
You held my hand
Led me homeward
I looked for you
You were nowhere
Holding tight my hand
Was my own


. . .



Still,
I think of you, baby
And how i grew old with you then
And this summer, you'll call-maybe
And act as if we were old friends
You'd say, 'how are you, baby'
I'd say, 'it's raining in athens'
And to this day
I nurse the fever
That spoiled my poor heart
And i've mastered the art of dealing
Slipping away without falling apart
So when this summer, you call-maybe
And ask how
I've been
I can be honest and answer plainly
'Since november, it's been raining'


. . .



You said to write you a song
So here, this is for you
Now as you toss through those lonely nights
Just know there is someone thinking of you
Everyone is waiting for the timing to be right
And we hope it's coming soon
So just rest your eyes and then...
You'll be in love again
We talked and the moon was bright
Your words were glowing as they drifted out of sight
But now the change of the seasons sets in and nothing, nothing feels just right
We fear these nights and then we compromise
Yeah, but morning always comes
So just rest your eyes and then... You'll be in love again
