Feels Like Home

Sunrise

Sunrise, sunrise
Looks like morning in your eyes
But the clocks held 9:15 for hours
Sunrise, sunrise
Couldn't tempt us if it tried
Cause the afternoon's already come and gone

And I said ooh, ooh, ooh
To you

Surprise, surprise
Couldn't find it in your eyes
But I'm sure it's written all over my face
Surprise, surprise
Never something I could hide
When I see we made it through another day

And I said ooh, ooh, ooh
To you

Now the night
Will throw its cover down
On me again
Ooh and if I'm right
It's the only way
To bring me back
Ooh, ooh, ooh
To you
Ooh, ooh, ooh
To you

Toes

The current is strong from what I've heard
It'll wisk you down the stream
But I never seem to be have the time so

My toes just touched the water
My toes just touched the water

Daydreamed on the bank again
I was swimming with the fish
And I thought this time that it may be true

But my toes just touched the water
My toes just touched the water
My toes just touched the water

Walked a mile just to find the edge
Some place low enough to step right in
Now I'm here and I can't begin to move

Walked a mile just to find the edge
Some place low enough to step right in
Now I'm here and I can't begin to move

The spoiled sun up over there
It always has to have its way
And I know that the river's there to shelter me

My toes just touched the water
My toes just touched the water
My toes just touched the water
My toes just touched the water
My toes just touched the water
My toes just touched the water

What Am I to You?

What am I to you
Tell me darling true
To me you are the sea
Fast as you can be
And deep the shade of blue

When you're feeling low
Oh to whom else do you go
See I'd cry if you hurt
I'd give you my last shirt
Because I love you so

Now if my sky should fall
Would you even call
I've opened up my heart
I never want to part
I'm giving you the ball

When I look in your eyes
I can feel the butterflies
I will love you when you're blue
But tell me darlin true
What am I to you

Now if my sky should fall
Would you even call
I've opened up my heart
I never wanna part
I'm giving you the ball

When I look in your eyes
I can feel the butterflies
Could you find a love in me
Would you carve me in a tree
Don't fill my heart with lies

I will you love when you're blue
Tell me darlin true
What am I to you

Humble Me

Went out on a limb
Gone too far
Broke down at the side of the road
Stranded at the outskirts and sun's creepin' up
Baby's in the backseat
Still fast asleep
Dreamin' of better days
I don't want to call you but you're all I have to turn to

What do you say
When it's all gone away?
Baby I didn't mean to hurt you
Truth spoke in whispers will tear you apart
No matter how hard you resist it
It never rains when you want it to

You humble me Lord
Humble me Lord
I'm on my knees empty
You humble me Lord
You humble me Lord
So please, please, please forgive me

Baby Teresa, she's got your eyes
I see you all the time
When she asks about her daddy
I never know what to say

Heard you kicked the bottle
And helped build the church
You carry an honest wage
Is it true you have somebody keeping you company?

What do you say
When its all gone away?
Baby I didn't meant to hurt you
Truth spoke in whispers will tear you apart
No matter how hard you resist it
It never rains when you want it to

You humble me Lord
You humble me Lord
I'm on me knees empty
You humble me Lord
You humble me Lord
So please, please forgive me
You humble me

Those Sweet Words

What did you say
I know I saw you singing
My ears won't stop ringing
Long enough to hear
Those sweet words
What did you say

And now the day
The hour hand has spun
But before the night is done
I just have to hear
Those sweet words
Spoken like a melody

All your love
Is a lost balloon
Rising up through the afternoon
Till it could fit on the head of a pin

Come on in
Did you have a hard time sleeping
Cause the heavy moon was keeping me awake
And all I know is I'm just glad to see you again

See my love
Like a lost balloon
Rising up through the afternoon
And then you appeared

What did you say
I know I saw you singing
My ears won't stop ringing
Long enough to hear
Those sweet words
And your simple melody

I just have to hear
Those sweet words
Spoken like a melody
I just wanna hear
Those sweet words

Above Ground

Underground I'm waiting
Just below the crowded avenue
Watchin' red lights fading out of view

Oh the air feels heavy
Everything just passes by
And I think that I'm a little shy

Meet me outside above ground
I see you on your way
I'll be with you someday, someday

Drawing lines above my head
But the fan keeps spinning over me
Just my thoughts to keep me company

Now I know I'm ready
Pour the night into a glass
Can I sip it slow and make it last

Meet me outside above ground
I see you on your way
I'll be with you someday, someday

Meet me outside above ground
I see you on your way
I'll be with you someday,
I'll be with you someday
I'll be with you someday,
I'll be with you someday

Carnival Town

Round 'n round
Carousel
Has got you under it's spell
Moving so fast
But going nowhere

Up 'n down
Ferris wheel
Tell me how does it feel
To be so high
Looking down here

Is it lonely?
Lonely
Lonely

Did the clown
Make you smile
He was only your fool for a while
Now he's gone back home
And left you wandering there

Is it lonely?
Lonely
Lonely

The Long Way Home

Well I stumbled in the darkness
I'm lost and alone
Though I said I'd go before us
And show the way back home
Is there a light up ahead
I can't hold on very long
Forgive me pretty baby but I always take the long way home

Money's just something you throw
Off the back of a train
Got a handful of lightening
And a hat full of rain
And I know that I said
I'd never do it again
Oh well I love you sweet baby but I always take the long way home

I put food on the table
And roof overhead
But I'd trade it all tomorrow
For the highway instead
Watch your back if I should tell you
Love's the only thing I've ever known
One thing for sure sweet baby
I always take the long way home

You know I love you baby
More than the whole wide world
I'm your woman
You know you are my pearl
Let's go out past the party lights
Where we can finally be alone
Come with me and we can take the long way home
Come with me, together we can take the long way home
Come with me, together we can take the long way home

In the Morning

I can't stop myself from callin'
Callin' out your name
I can't stop myself from fallin'
Fallin' back again

In the mornin'
Baby in the afternoon

Dark like the shady corners
Inside a violin
Hot like to burn my lips
I know I can't win

In the mornin'
Baby in the afternoon

I tried to quit you but I'm too weak
Wakin' up without you I can hardly speak at all

My girlfriend tried to help me
To get you off my mind
She tried a little tea and sympathy
To get me to unwind

In the mornin'
Baby in the afternoon

Funny how my favorite shirt
Smells more like you than me
Bitter traces left behind
Stains no one can see

In the mornin'
Baby in the afternoon

You're gonna put me in an early grave
I know I'm your slave whenever you call

I can't stop myself from callin'
Callin' out your name
I can't stop myself from fallin'
Fallin' back again
Fallin' back again
Fallin' back again
Fallin' back again
Fallin' back again
Fallin' back again
Baby in the afternoon
Fallin' back again
In the morning

The Prettiest Thing

The prettiest thing
I ever did see
Was lightening from the top of a cloud
Moving through the dark a million miles an hour
With somewhere to be

So why does it seem
Like a picture
That's hanging up on someone else's wall
Lately I haven't been myself at all
It's heavy on my mind

I'm dreaming again
Like I've always been
And way down low
I still know

The prettiest thing
I ever did see
Was dusty as the handle on the door
Rusty as a nail stuck in the old pine floor
Looks like home to me

Now I'm dreaming again
Like I've always been
And way down low
I'm thinkin' of the prettiest thing

Be Here to Love Me

Your eyes seek conclusion in all this confusion of mine
Though you and I both know it's only the warm glow of wine
That's got you to feeling this way, but I don't care,
I want you to stay
Just to hold me and tell me
You'll be here to love me today

Children are dancin', the gamblers are chancin' their all
The window's accusing the door of abusing the wall
But who cares what the night watchmen say
The stage has been set for the play
So just hold me and tell me
You'll be here to love me today

The moon's come and gone but a few stars hang on on to the sky
Well the wind's runnin' free but it ain't up to me ask why
But the poets are demanding their pay
And they've left me with nothin' to say
'Cept to hold me and tell me
You'll be here to love me today
Just hold me and tell me
You'll be here to love me today
Just hold me and tell me
You'll be here to love me today

Don't Miss You At All

As I sit and watch the snow
Fallin' down
I don't miss you at all
I hear children playin' laughin' so loud
I don't think of your smile

So if you never come to me
You'll stay a distant memory
Out my window I see lights going dark
Your dark eyes don't haunt me

And then I wonder who I am
Without the warm touch of your hand

And then I wonder who I am
Without the warm tough of your hand
As I sit and watch the snow
Fallin' down

I don't miss you at all
I don't miss you at all
I don't miss you at all

Creepin' In

There's a big ol' hole
It goes right through the sole
Of this old shoe
And the water on the ground
Ain't got no place else it found
So it's only got one thing left to do

Creep on in
Creep on in
And once it has begun
It won't stop until it's done
Sneaking in

There's a silver moon
That came a little soon
For me to bare
Shines brightly on my bed
And the shadows overhead
Won't let me sleep as long as its there

Just creep on in
Creep on in
And once it has begun
It won't stop until it's done
Sneaking in

Creep on in
Creep on in
And once you have begun
Don't stop until you're done
Sneaking in

There's a big ol' hole
That goes right through my sole
Oh and that ain't nothing new
So long as you're around
And got no place else you've found
There's only one thing left to do

Just creep on in
Creep on in
And once you have begun
You don't stop until you're done
Sneaking in
And once it has begun
It won't stop until its done
Sneaking in
And once it has begun
Don't stop until its done
Sneaking in
Creeping in
Sneaking in
Creepin in
Sneaking in
It's gonna be creepin on in
