Devil on the Road

Time is out of mind

When you drive the bottom line 

You know

 

Turning back the time

You leave it all behind 

When you go 

Tugging at the ties 

That are tightening all the time

 

Looking for the signs

That have been there all the time

You know

 

Baby, I don’t know

Not any more

I can see myself

I feel like I’m coming home

And I’ll be right there

And I don’t know

If I lay down low

 

Here’s the funny thing

When you step outside your dream

You’re home

 

Lightening lights the sky

Thudner in the night

On the road

 

Static on the line

A hundered thousand miles 

To go

 

The sunrise rises up 

The road goes on and on 

And you’re home

 

Baby I don’t know

Not any more

I can see myself

I feel like I’m coming hoem

And I’ll be right there

And I don’t know

If I lay down low

 

There are shadows on the road (x4)

 

Baby I don’t know

Not any more

I can see myself

I feel like I’m coming home

And I’ll be right there

And I don’t know

If I lay down low

 

I’m the devil on the road

 

I’m the devil on the road

 

The Shade of Trees

 Light comes up and finds the day

Sun's too bright so you turn away

Shadows pass along the way

You are here and here I’ll stay

 

And here I’ll be 

Underneath

The passing of the memories

And the shade of trees

 

Sun comes out upon the fields

Stretching out along hte hill

She is dancing along the sky

She brings with her the morning light

 

And here I’ll be 

Underneath

The passing of the memories

And the shade of trees

 

A Day Like Today

You kept me alive

All this time

You kept me alve

You turned on the light

 

I can feel that you’re near like the sun coming out

I don’t know when you go there are clouds  all around

Playing games in the rain but I’ll find my way out

Running down to the ground but I’m on the right track

 

Yeah!

 

You kept me alive

All this time

You kept me alive

You turned on the light

 

On a day like today

No sign of rain

We change but stay the same

 

You kept me alive

All this time

You kept me alive

You turned on the light

 

All these years I came near but I did not begin

All this time passing by but I didn't get in

Now I find piece of mind on the road to the hill

Lay me down now i’m found and the world becomes still

 

On a day like today

No sign of rain

We change but stay the same

 

You kept me alive (x4)

 

Late Last Summer

It’s a long road home

Where do you go?

The sun’s coming up

With or without love

 

You’re too far in

It’s too far out

It’s too far up

And a long way down

 

Late last summer

Behind the wall

You had it all

Late last summer

Before the fall

You had it all

 

Turning over

Turning in your sleep

All your dreams are

Ten foot deep

 

You’ve been driving 

Driving in the rain

Through all the places 

That all look the same

 

Late last summer

Behind the wall

You had it all

Late last summer

Before the fall

You had it all

 

Late last summer

Behind the wall

You had it all

Late last summer

Before the fall

You had it all

 

Skimming Stones

Everything will change

Nothing stays the same

End of the things we know

Beginning of the things that we don’t

 

East of everything

West of the wind

Still the sun shines through

Every time i’m with you

 

When the sun comes out

We’re skimming stones

When the sun comes out

We know we’re home 

 

A rainy day in May

One last role to play

I won't repeat the mistakes

I’ve already made

 

When the sun comes out

We’re skimming stones

When the sun comes out

We know we’re home 

 

She Keeps Me On

I’m a stranger at the threshold 

You are a flutter of wings 

The sun is over the hill

I’m unlearning everything

 

On the edges of a new dawn

You feel you’ve reached the end

Well there’s no end to anything

Just begining again

 

And I dont know why

She keeps me on

And I don’t know why

She keeps me on

 

On and on 

She keeps me on

On and on 

She keeps me on

 

I’m a stranger at the table
I will go anywhere

I could tell a thousand strangers

But no-one would care

 

Well she carries me onward

She leads me home

Well, you just have to let it all go

Life is an open road

 

And I dont know why

She keeps me on

And I don’t know why

She keeps me on

 

On and on 

She keeps me on

On and on 

She keeps me on

 

This life 

Is burning

Brighter than eyes

I am learning 

 

This life

Is changing

Well no-one gets out alive

I think we’ll make it

 

So lead me on

Lead me on

On and on

She keeps me on

On and on 

Lead me on

On and on

She keeps me on

On and on

Lead me on

On and on....

 

Into the Blue 

The weather turns over the hills

We’re heading in

The rain falls down over the fields

The day begins

 

We should shelter from the rain

But then again

Something changes in the clouds

Let the rain come down

 

The moon is rising over you

And you send yourself to sleep

You’re sailing into the blue

But this is not a dream

 

The sun comes up between the trees

Smiling at everything

Summer sun on autumn leaves

Bigger hopes on little wings 

 

The moon is rising over you

And you send yourself to sleep

You’re sailing into the blue

But this is not a dream

 

Into the blue 

 

Headlights

I’m a hare in the headlights

Staring out into the night

I’m a voice that is whispering

Don’t keep yourself locked up inside

 

I know

Don’t you think I know

 

There’s a song on the radio

Echoes of a bygone age

We sing along on the precipice

Aching for forgotten days

 

I know

Don’t you think I know

 

They draw you near

Searchlights disappear

Well I’m standing here

Headlights appear

 

A blue grey moon is over you 

Moonlight is over the feilds

Driving into the heartland

You don’t know what you think or you feel

 

I know

Don’t you think I know

 

We are lights that light the way

You follow because you lead

There is no choiuce buty moving on

The ending is to begin

 

I know

Don’t you think I know

 

They draw you near

Searchlights disappear

Well I’m standing here

Headlights appear

 

 

Down Comes the Night

Washing blowing on an October line

Sun shines through the trees

Green leaves against the deep blue sky

I’ve come to find 

The rest of my life

 

Autumnal slumbers and awakenings in spring

The sun’s mirror glow

Hurts my eyes and soon the light

Will fade and we’ll head inside

And sit by the fire

 

Oh down comes the night

We come alive

It’ll be alright 

Down comes the night

 

His thoughts carried him over the rooftops

Through the park to the start

Further to go it’s a long road

The journey’s not lost, just unknown 

Here we go

 

Still waters will carry you nowhere

A cycle without a chain

Colours are cast like a 50’s photograph

The last of the sun before the rain

It’ll be back again

 

Oh down comes the night

We come alive

It’ll be alright 

Down comes the night

 

Dynamo

You know that the past is a forgeign place

You’ve got to let yourself up off the hook

You can lean on any shoulder

Don’t leap before you take a second look

 

I will lay your burden down

It’s just a whisper in June

Nothing’s holding you back now

But the whisper in you

It’s been a long, long time since you lit up inside

Dynamo

 

You are not a stranger to yourself

Even when the night is falling hard

When the shadows grow in corners

Don’t afraid of the dark

 

I will lay your burden down

It’s just a whisper in June

Nothing’s holding you back now

But the whisper in you

It’s been a long, long time since you lit up inside

Dynamo

 

Just watching the clouds rolling over me

And no I don’t really know

What goes around will come around

We connect like dominoes

 

I will lay your burden down

It’s just a whisper in June

Nothing’s holding you back now

But the whisper in you

It’s been a long, long time since you lit up inside

Dynamo

 

Long Road Home

I know you and you know me

I don’t know what you can be

I’ve got to get up off the kitchen floor

I don’t belong here anymore

 

It seems so long since I’ve been here

A hundred thousand million years

The dawn is rising, yes I saw

It’s brighter than I ever thought

 

I don’t know what you’ve been told

Just mind the low sun when you go

It’s a long road home

 

Finding faces in the clouds

Been lying on the grass for hours

They stay there until they’re gone

They’re there until they’re not

 

I’m the singer, not the song

 

From here the hills hide the sun

It’s soon to rise above

The boats are going out today 

That’s all I have to say

 

Drive safe on your way

 

I don’t know what you know

Just mind the low sun when you go

It’s a long road home
