One Less Day

 
Hey, what are you waiting for?
You don't have to live your life that way
And all you'll have tomorrow is...
One less day

Chorus

One less day to wear your heart out
On something good
One more delay 'til you wake up and find out
That you could, yeah you could
Live you life right now

Chorus


Along


All along the sidewalk winds
Beside these streets and back through time
To the place you were before you crawled
Got up and walked along it all

I said hey, hey, hey, hey
Walk so long and now it all comes clear
Hey, hey, hey
All along the sidewalk led you here

You make your way through a crowded room
And you stop to rest, did you stop too soon?
And you eye the door as it opens wide
You see life goes on on the other side

Chorus

In the town where you were born
Runs the road that got you home
Now it goes on and on...and on

All along the sidewalk winds
Beside these streets and up through time
To the place you are and where you'll be
And to when we'll know and to what they'll see

Chorus


The Truth


Now listen up, boy, lesson won't be repeated
We sell you the toys, more than you ever needed
You give us your soul, we'll fill it full of holes
'Till you learn to do it yourself

Then when you're broke, son, searching for your salvation
You'll need distraction, well, welcome to T.V. nation
We got it all here, more choices every year
To help you to help yourself

And the truth they lied to you about
Was the right idea nobody tried out
And the road they swore would never end
It leads nowhere now, it led nowhere then

You break your back, man, and what do you have to show for?
Steal from the pack then, you know that you deserve more
Its only wrong when you get caught in the end
Just do it for yourself

Chorus

They'll tell you all about it
'Til you can't live without it
'Til you believe in their everything and nothing at all

Hold on to your soul, they'll steal it if you let them
Climb out of that hole, before they fill it in
They will deny you, once you've got nothing to give
Just don't give them yourself

Chorus


Great Expectations


Your mind is beautiful
But your head is full of holes
And your thoughts, they spill out on the floor
And your heart, it overflows
But your back breaks under the load
And your feet always point you towards the door

And the only explanation
Is your own great expectation

Is this what you've waited for
Or is there something else in store?
And would you recognize it when it comes
What will time tell you in the end?
Will it break what you would not bend?
Can you tell a rising from a setting sun?

Chorus

Oh, we are what we hold on to
We become just what we choose
We can only hope to reap what we have sown

Chorus

You can set the earth to shaking
But no heart is beyond breaking
No, not even your's


Don't Misunderstand


Don't, don't misunderstand
And I will try not to give you cause to
If you won't, won't know who I am
Then I have not a soul to fall to

May I call you mine?
Would you call me thine?
Could I call on you, baby
Somewhere down the line?

Would you try my heart on to find
If it could hold all that you could pour in?
And when the times right to spill our your mind
Could I be there to soak it all in?

May I call you mine?
Would you call me thine?
Could I call on you, baby
Somewhere down the line?

I need you to see me
And I need to believe in you

May I call you mine?
Would you call me thine?
Could I call on you, baby
Could I call you this time?



It Gets Away


Sometimes it can get away from you
So just rewind and see the things you swore you'd never do
But now it's all to true
It got away from you
It gets away from you

Somedays you wake up running so far behind
Like in one way or another its matter over mind
And in the end you find
It got away this time
Got away this time

Well, take a breath, man
And recollect yourself
And pull together
While you still can

Sometimes, it can get away from you
The sunshine spotlights all the chances that you blew
And before you even knew it
It got away
It up and flew away, hey

Well, take a breath, man
And recollect yourself
And pull together
While you still can

I know it gets away from you
I've felt the same a time or two
I know it gets away from you

It gets away from you I know
I've felt the same, I've felt it go
It gets away from you I know


Bless Your Heart
 
It's okay, you're just tired
Lay your worries on the fire
That which hurts you must soon desert you
Like smoke from your eyes

Heads get weary, life gets tough
This daily trouble is trouble enough
When that which fights you is bound so tight to
The things that you love

But it won't do to say it's alright
If all that that means is there's no need to cry
'Cause there is sometimes and that's just fine
It's alright

It's okay, you'll get through this
A child needs comfort, but so do you Miss
Bless your heart
Bless your heart
Bless your heart



Before You


Before you go, go be far away
Be that what it may
Be it yea or nay
I've not had time to
Resign myself to this fate
But it's too late now
Before you go

Before you say what I knew you'd say
No I won't be okay
And how would you know anyway
It too late
And you'll never know now
Before you go

Before you, before only you
I'm not what they see
I am more than me
But you're going away...

I don't really want to know
The reasons why before you go
I don't really want to see
Your life go on now without me


The Far Country

lyrics by Mark Foster

A baby's breath, a final tear
A coming home, a new frontier
Each birth, each death - a harbor view
Drifts further from and closer to
The far country

From eastern shores, a sunrise glows
In western skies, a darkness grows
From promised lands, a light house gleams
A distant hope, an ancient dream
Of the far country

A bandit's blade, a surgeon's knife
Angel of death, agent of life
With every breath, in every room
We greet the ship embarking to
The far country
