She wears a halo of ashes
Spectre of the wind
Waits on me so patiently
I no longer can pretend
Sky lies a thousand miles below
Stars shine and the moon is clear
Nothing and for no one
Won't see me if you're here

I've been a long, long time away
Got one foot in the grave
Glorified in the dying of the sun

My angel pulls me closer
As my poison she crawls through
Walks with me so silently
I no longer can refuse
Tomorrow I'm a thousand miles behind
Stars shine and the moon below
Wake me where you find me
Pretend you don't know

I've been a long, long time away
With one foot in the grave
Glorified in the dying of the sun

She wears a halo of ashes
Spectre of the wind
Waits on me so patiently
I no longer can pretend
Tomorrow I'm a thousand miles behind
Face painted in the moon below
Wake me where you find me
Pretend you don't know

I've been a long, long time away
With one foot in the grave
Glorified in the dying of the sun

I've been a long, long time away
With one foot in the grave
Glorified in the dying of the sun

Bite the thorn that pierced the skin
Come back down to Earth again
The cold is creeping deep inside
Disconnect the telephone line

Got to get away, got to get away, get away
Got to get away before the Lord calls me to stay
All that I know, should've been, could've been mine

I killed the last way out of this
Persuaded by a deceitful kiss

Said you better stay, said you better stay, better stay
Said you better stay before it's all gone, gone away
All that I know, should've been, could've been mine
And for all that I know
Should've been, could've been mine

Bite the thorn that pierced the skin
Come back down to Earth again
The cold is creeping deep inside
Disconnect the telephone line

Got to get away, got to get away, get away
Got to get away before I lose my mind
Said you better stay, said you better stay, better stay
Said you better stay before it's all gone, gone away
All that I know, should've been, could've been mine
And for all that I know
Should've been, could've been mine
(repeat to fade)

Her ghost hides in my mind in the night
In a way she's haunting me
I'm wanting her still
Through rose coloured skies
Or blue, blue moonlight, and miracles
I'm high as she's walking by

And when I look at you I got a second chance
Really need to have you now
One by one they fall
It always breaks me down

The quiet cuts me through
The candle burns, the knife is turned
The pain will arrive, I know, deep inside

When I look at you I've got a second chance
Really need to take it now
One by one they fall, it always breaks me down
One by one they fall, it always breaks me down
One by one it always breaks me down

Her ghost hides in my eyes, in the night
In a way she's haunting me, I'm wanting her still
Through rose coloured skies
Or blue, blue moonlight and miracles
I'm high as she's walking by

And when I look at you I've got a second chance
Really need to have you now
One by one they fall, it always breaks me down

. . .


All these dying days
I walked the ghost town
Used to be my city
I seen a holy man
Seen him crying with the mother Mary
All these dying days

Yes, it's too late
This life isn't mine
Lord hear me pray
Can you ease my mind
Now that they're gone forever
Jesus I done gone over
Sleeping alone, you stay on your side
If I could lie like all of a thousand other times
I wouldn't be on this highway
Taken on down this highway
All these dying days
I walk the ghost town
Used to be my city
I seen a holy man
Seen him crying with the mother Mary
All these dying days, ah yeah

All these dying days
I walk the ghost town
Used to be my city
I seen a holy man
Seen him crying with the Mother Mary
All these dying days, ah yeah

Yes, it's too late
This life isn't mine
Lord don't you hear me pray
Can you ease my mind
Waiting for the sunshine
Waiting for the sunshine

All these dying days
I walked the ghost town
Used to be my city
I seen a holy man
Seen him crying with the mother Mary
All these dying days, ah yeah

Dying, woah dying, oh dying, days

. . .


Take a minute just to breathe
Take a minute till I'm wide awake
I am searching once again
And the sun has left the sky
And you're on my mind, you're on my mind

Take a second to believe
Just a second, you won't have to wait
Don't you turn your back on me
I couldn't look into your eyes
And I don't know why, and I don't know why
But I'll try again on another day

You make my mind
Just want to leave this world behind
You make my mind, you make my mind

Let the silence creep in
In the silence I'm awake all night
Just searching once again
But could I reach you in the morning light
If I close my eyes, if I close my eyes
Well, you're here right away

You make my mind
Just want to leave this world behind
You make my mind, you make my mind
You're on my mind, I'll try again on another day

And I don't know why, and I don't know why
If I close my eyes, If I close my eyes
You're here right away

You make my mind, just want to leave this world behind
You make my mind, just want to leave this world behind
You make my mind, you make my mind, you, you
You make my mind, make my mind

Winter's setting in again
And it feels like the end is near
Sense a sense I ain't had in long
Watching the seconds passing by

Come January, I swear this world
Won't be the one that we once lived on
Took an oath for a promise sworn and broken
All that's gone away

On Monday morning you can't wake up
Still dreaming of what could have been
Something good has gone and left you
It's another tear, one more denial

Come January, I swear this world
Won't be the one that we once lived on
Took an oath, another a promise sworn and broken
All that's gone, all that's gone before has changed

When Monday morning you don't wake up
Still dreaming of what could have been
Something good has gone and left you
It's another tear, one more denial

Come January, I swear this world
Won't be the one that we once lived on
Took an oath, another promise sworn and broken
All that's gone, all that's gone before
All that's gone before
All that's gone before, It's changed

. . .


It's taken everything
Everything I've got and it's hung me on a line
Water rising up over me
And I think I'm going to die, think I'm going to die

I told a lie, that's what I said
I told them one you know I'll always keep
Whose God is mine
Whose God is mine
Whose God is mine
Whose God is the one with the witness

Shine your lonely light on me
I'll be there to hold the mirror
I could take you down with me
Show you lonely, lonely, lonely

Death wastes no time it seems
And its hung me on a line, hung me on a line
Heartbreak falling all over me
And I think I'm going to die, think I'm going to die

I told a lie, that's what I said
I told them one you know I'll always keep
Whose God is mine
Whose God is mine
Whose God is mine
Whose God is the one with the witness

Shine your lonely light on me
I'll be there to hold the mirror
I could take you down with me
Show you lonely, lonely, lonely

I told a lie, that's what I said
I told the one you know I'll always keep
Whose God is mine
Whose God is mine
Whose God is mine
Whose God is the one with the witness

Shine your lonely light on me
I'll be there to hold the mirror
I could take you down with me
Show you lonely, lonely, lonely

Shine your lonely light on me
I'll be there to hold the mirror
I could take you down with me
Show you lonely, lonely, lonely

Lonely, lonely, lonely

. . .


It's a broken morning outside
Go easy on my mind
Because you're this dream I'm hanging on
And I'm trying to make the dawn

And the longest way I travelled
From the darkness to the light
Lord it's been a million miles
And these prisons, I can't abide

I'm halfway here, I'm halfway there
I'm halfway here, I'm halfway there
I'm halfway here, I'm halfway there
And all along I've been a traveller, yeah

Forever out of time
Forever just unwinds
I see the green beyond the blue
And I'm trying to make it through

And the longest way I travelled
From the darkness to the light
Lord it seems a million miles
All my brothers, I can't abide

I'm halfway here, I'm halfway there
I'm halfway here, I'm halfway there
I'm halfway here, I'm halfway there
All along I've been a traveller, yeah

This twilight world is cold
Go easy on my soul
Because you're this dream I'm hanging on
And I'm trying to meet the dawn

And the longest way I travelled
From the darkness to the light
Lord it seems a million miles
And these persons, I can't abide

I'm halfway here, I'm halfway there (x5)
All along I've been a traveller
(repeat to fade)

. . .


Born to work under the way your velvet lies
Smoke and fog, getting hazy in the sky, arise

I've been where you've never been
I've seen what you never seen
I've dreamed what you never dream
I've left what you never leave
But now I can only find one way to take me higher

Rays of shattered light to clean my eyes
This spark just burns away until I'm blind inside

I've seen what you never seen
I've been where you've never been
I've dreamed what you never dream
I've left what you never leave
But now I can only find one way to take me higher

There's only a reflection left to hide
Once you know the aim, I told you it's still mine

I've seen what you never seen
I've been where you've never been
I've left what you never leave
I've dreamed what you've never dreamed
But now I can only find one way to take me higher
But now I can only find one way
Take me higher, take me higher, take me higher

. . .


If you want to get to Heaven let me tell you how
Keep your hand on the Gospel plow
Hold on, hold on, hold on

Mary had a golden chain
Every link spelt Jesus' name
Hold on, hold on, hold on
Mary had a golden chain, hold on

If you want to get to Heaven let me tell you how
Keep your hand on the Gospel plow

Waking up without you now I'm on my own
Coming down the sky burns into my soul
And I want to know that you're mine
I've got to know you're mine

Coming back tomorrow said you'd be alright
I never find a way now to kill the time
And I want to know what's in your mind
I got to know your mind

And I fell alone, and my dreams are told
You're not at all, not at all
Not at all who you say you are
I'm glad I know, glad I know
Glad I know where you're going

Waking up without you girl I'm on my own
Coming down the sky burns into my soul
And I want to know that you're mine
I've got to know you're mind

And I fell alone, and my dreams are told
You're not at all, not at all
Not at all who you say you are
I'm glad I know, glad I know, glad I know
Where you're going
