Track Name: Bowery Beat
Bowery Beat

The money burns, the people fled
The building’s dark, the pillows red
The fever hangs, hands on fire
The mind is gone into the night

Sorrow sails onto the ledge
Halos fall down to the neck

The tables turn, nail the doors
Lock the windows, embrace the floors
Fall asleep to tales of woe; the silver sun is shining low

Yet still they haunt and still they reel
To little songs on a bowery beat

The bag is full of rocks and wheat
Still they stare to distant fields
The tears ran red, the fire went blue
The bodies fell, the bird it flew

Tomorrow we'll be far away
Drag our dreams into another day

Track Name: Rolling in the Tide
Rolling in the Tide

Roll over when it's over
Settle gently in my head
My hands are wide and open
My body is a mess

Ring a bell for sorrow
I'll be sitting in your cell
I believed when I was younger
I could believe in anything

So crucify your glories
For blue is the river on your side
Tonight there will be no more answers still
Just a moon rolling in the tide

Made it through another winter
I made it through the spring
But autumn’s nearly over
I swear I never missed a thing

I often stumble
Often stop to take a breath
My heart was never stronger
Like the way it was back then

So crucify your glories
For that blue is just the river on your side
Tonight there will be no more answers still
Just a moon rolling in the tide

Track Name: Red River
Red River

I pay for money then I take my rest
Not gonna hurry gonna help myself
For this my brother you should pray

No smell of roses on my breath
Not gonna hold it or I'd be dead
For this my brother I should pray

Send them back on their horses going
This is where the red river's flowing

Sidewalk sally got a nervous twitch
She’d beg for loving but she hurt her wrist
For this my brother you should sway

A quick drink it won't make me sad
Another whisky gonna turn me bad
And for this my brother I shall sway

We’ll send them back on their horses knowing
That this is where the red rivers flowing

Ole number seven it hit me for six
I love to gamble but the two don't mix
For this my brother you will play

Been taking medicine for my head
I wrap them up and then I put them to bed
And for this my brother I complain

We’ll send them back on their horses going
This is where the red river’s flowing

We pay for money we take our rest
Not gonna hurry gonna help ourselves
For this my brothers you should pray

No smell of roses on my breath
Not gonna hold it or I'd be dead
For this my brother I should pay

We’ll send you back on your horses knowing
This is where the red rivers flowing

Track Name: Careless Words
Careless Words

How long, crossing sands
Have we been walking on our hands?
Hold a mirror to a face
Hold a mirror to her face

Always feels, that I'm running back
Just been here far too long is all
I just need to let it go
I just need to let it go

All the small, imperfect stars
Come showering above me now
I don't ever want to leave
I don't ever want to leave your arms

The careless words that you speak
Come ringing in my ears today
You just never made it clear
I don't ever make it clear

So challenge this, all your thoughts and trends
Come to unfashionable ends
I just had to let you know
I just had to let you know

Put a smile, upon your face
And you never fail to shine
I just couldn't love you more
How could I ever love you more than I do right now

Track Name: Fire on the Edge of Town
Fire on the Edge of Town

Wiry faces endorse the truth
Lines and races are falling through
Backdoor hustles as we’re waiting on the starting call

Paulie closes another book
I said that movie we'll it ain’t so good
My mind stutters as my mouth it begins to move

I said I ain’t been so happy but I ain’t feeling so blue

Change the record or clear the air
Floorboards whistle to the noise downstairs
Headlights flashing but I ain’t got no room too move

Push the baby or raise the fair
I don't say maybe and I don't say where
Ain’t holding nothing we'll you ain’t got so much too lose

I said I ain’t been so happy but I ain’t feeling so blue

It’s like when you arms are holding mine
Like a breath from that morning dew
It’s like a fire that starts on the edge of the town
And the winds come ‘a bellowing through

Call your sister said where've you been
I've been out walking those roads again
Ain’t thought of nothing well I still don't even have a clue

She said I ain’t been so happy but I aint feeling so blue
I said I aint been so happy but I ain’t feeling so blue

Track Name: Lila
Lila

Lila dear your father’s here
To hold you in his arms
Don’t you cry now close your eyes
And I’ll be by your side

You’re priceless when you shine your light
For all the joy you bring
Don’t you fear your mother dear
Will soon be where you are

Lila let your perfect hand
Grab a hold of mine
The sweetest smile and the laughter now
Will occupy my time

Child of rest you are crawling fast
You will soon be on your feet
You’ll be on your throne just like a queen
And I'll bow down to your crown

Now you bare all our hopes and fears
In this ever changing land
Words will form and the pages turn
For now there is no other

So Lila dear your father’s here
To hold you in his arms
Don’t you fear your mother dear
Will soon be where you are

Track Name: Annabelle
Annabelle

Sally kind enough to hold my hand
When everyone else would let go
I'd be nothing without you now
Ain’t nothing that I'm too proud to show?

Ride with the fallen and then rising up from the dead
Those cold winter mornings hear that voice
Calling me back to my bed

But oh Annabelle
Who’ll save you tonight?
Oh Annabelle

Make a stand or just suffer where you land
There’s nothing that I'd rather regret
If I was back to where this all began
You know I'd probably just do things the same

Walking on water left me sore and so soft to my head
I bleed in silence just the way that I've always been

But oh Annabelle
Who’ll save you tonight?
Oh Annabelle

Can you please remind me why I am here?
Or could you just hold me a while
Maybe take off some of those heavy winter clothes
And put them right next to mine

Sweet little angel you got such a beautiful heart
I've tried to ignore this I know you've been sleeping
But I find sleeping so hard

But oh Annabelle
I'll save you tonight
Oh Annabelle

Track Name: Fuel the Fire
Fuel the Fire

Down on bourbon street
The house lights beat upon your coloured beads
I will walk you home and I'll appear outside your window
This is all I have in these moments when I don't feel so sad
But these thoughts will only fuel the fire

Come back don't you start
Piling the misery upon my door
For I will lay you out and I force my head above the clouds
Now you would stay with him
and the pain well it shot right through my skin
But these lies will only fuel the fire

I've been half a man
Woman I'm barely even that
I was taking down my walls at the time it seemed like such a little chore
Now I'll be on your side just let me lay with you until the morning light
But these nights will only fuel the fire

Oh I start to keel
I miss the lights above your bed
The starfish at your feet
And I failed to make your life complete
Now I break down to this
And I face I know that I will never win
But these fears will only fuel the fire

Only dreams survive
I move on oh none the otherwise
Passed above the blame
Oh can you love me just the same
For this will be my fight
But I fear I may not last another round
But these thoughts will only fuel the fire

Track Name: Beyond Below
Beyond Below

Precious little hands on the dialling wheel
I'm a calling home, I wont be long
White car screaming right before my eyes
Oh my oh my, what a beautiful sound

Tomorrow go easy don't break my heart
When the light first hits we'll be miles apart

Children take the stage but the flash don't work
She’s a pirate kid not a little girl
Shout from the back 'our baby's dead'
I'd be taking my fill but there ain’t none left

Tomorrow go easy don't break my bones
When the light first hits you'll feel right at home

Too late to save but I tried my best
Oh I put you to the test, to see if you drown
Graveside flowers turn to dust
But you can't let it go, you gotta stay in control

Mother I tried not to hate myself
When the light first hit there was no-one else

Came down to see you but your sign was out
Read 'where've you been, my little rock 'n roll king'
Something oh lately weighing down my mind
Oh I try to think and let the words unwind

Sorrow go easy don't bare my soul
When the light first hits we'll be beyond below

Couldn’t get to own me so you changed yourself
I'm too good I guess, for someone else
You wipe his shoulders and you clean his shoes
Now you’re living the dream of the housewife blues

Tomorrow go easy don't break my heart
When the light first hits we'll be miles apart

Sorrow go easy don't bare my soul
When the light first hits we'll be beyond below

Track Name: Starting Line
Starting Line

I'm hearing voices, I'm reading signs
I'm counting the colours, they’re counting mine

I'm feeling that blue rush; I'm seeing a new start
I'm making my way across the starting line

I'm hearing my conscience and I'm playing deaf
I've been feeling those bones creek
Now that I've been burning lead

I'm hitting that new high, I'm stealing that old rope
I'm making my way across the starting line

Go find me a river
Go find me a path to walk
And lead me with your guided hand
That will take me from this foreign land

I’m ignoring people, I'm getting free
I've been working here too long
And it's been testing me

But I'm leaving that bad love
I'm getting me that new job
And I'm making my way across
The starting line

Go and find me a little river
Go and find me a path to walk
And lead me with that guided hand
That will take me from this foreign land

Now I've been moving mountains and I'm paying rent
I've been sleeping on emotions and I've been reaping the hell

I must be losing my mind
But I'm keeping all these good times
As I'm making my way across the starting line
Oh I'm making my way across the starting line

Track Name: Forlorn
Forlorn

True love waits in the back of the shadows
Taunting the ones with no arrows
Pointing the way to go home

Deadlocked failures an optional insult
A collection of broken reminders
Pulling your eyes to the floor

Horses race to the beat
Chances come bitterly sweet
Forlorn

Bad luck, truth hurts but lies do not suffer
A beautiful ghost will haunt me
But someday you got to let go

Dry mouth, cotton breath reaching for old sounds
I drank too much now I must lie down
And rest in my heart for a while

Horses race to the beat
Chances come bitterly sweet
Forlorn

Old hands wrestle the thoughts from the new lands
Wars that they fought to remind them
Who was to blame from the start

Track Name: Lowlands
Lowlands

My love went walking showered in rain
In rolls the winter to take you away
But I'm not moving for it’s here I will stand
Bound for no glory in the lowlands

Across from the holding down by the sea
Stretch my eyes over the heather and peat
Now I'm a whisper with a promise in hand
Fed to the aether into the lowlands

Headlights sparkle the valley it shone
Sky sharp like a razor cutting into the sun
My father told me pride won't make you a man
But words fall uneven in the lowlands

Brittle and broken surrounded by you
I suffered in silence I howled at the moon
Though we are parted with my love I send
Down through the meadows into the lowlands

Plain yellow roses they fall on my head
I slide in slowly consumed by the flames
But I'm going walking where the lights never end
Over the mountains into the lowlands

Time passes over the green turns to grey
Red hands they shiver black hearts stray
Come up from the borders, oh rise up from the strand
Bury me under the lowlands

Track Name: Before We Start to Forget
Before We Start to Forget

Headlights glow
Bodies of wire and snow
Cracked windows cheap alcohol
As the old sparra sings

Glasgow smiles
Be endless sleep tonight
I hold you between the lines
As you suffer each breath

Home lies there
Desperate eyes hold abandoned stares
Feelings will infiltrate
My love on the wire

Justice starts and ends with a heavy heart
Fear lies in all that hurts
Now even the brave

Come on lets go
Let’s escape these walls
Before we start to forget
