The Aching

It's dripping from the ceiling
It's everything I see
And that old sinking feeling
Is rushing over me

Everybody knows what the aching means
Nobody wants to belong
Somewhere in between what you wanted
And what you didn't want

If there was laughter
Would that have made you want it more
If there was no past here
No one else before

Everybody knows what the aching means
Nobody wants to belong
Somewhere in between what you wanted
And what you didn't want

--
Glimpse of a Time

With a silver ring
And a mind overage
Did you come to belong

Did you look for the light
And did you feel the fire
Did it move you at all

What was I, but a glimpse of a time, time
What was I, but a glimpse of a time, time
In your life
In your life

I look through my mind
But all that I find
Is a permanent flow

And it's written everywhere
And it's running down my face
But I can't let it go

Did you run any risk
Or believe in a sign
I might be underage
But I'm losing my mind

What was I, but a glimpse of a time, time
What was I, but a glimpse of a time, time
In your life
In your life

--
Roam

Now that you're free
Finally facing the sky
Balancing on a tide
Between day and night

Now that you're free
Now that the stars are aligned
I hope you know what to find
I hope you make up your mind

Roam
You're on your own
And the world is new
Infinite oceans of blue

Now that you're free

Roam
You're on your own
And the world is new
Infinite oceans of blue

Hanging all over you

--
Sun Has Gone

I don't know where the sun has gone
It darkens all around you, John
You've shaved your head and sold your drum
It's sorrow lost and sorrow won

When you walk across the floor
Like you've lost it all before
Remember now when you were young
And didn't know what to become
Said you'd fall in love with anyone

I don't know where the sun has gone
It darkens all around me, John
I'm dressed up in a summer song
Sorrow lost and sorrow won

I long for more than I can give
I find it hard to simply live
And I don't know how to be young
So tell me now whose side you're on
You'd fall in love with anyone

--
River Raining

So you will still knock on doors
And I still get cold in your arms
And this old hurt comes in waves

Still hours still falling
Any day now you'll hear me coming
To sing what I cannot say
To weather the river raining

I pled for a place in you
You told me there is no truth
But if this is true, there is no place so desolate
so distant behind the door
Did you reach out
I crossed and uncrossed my arms
It's so long ago

Still hours still falling
Any day now you'll hear me coming
To sing what I cannot say
To weather the river raining

--
Soon After This

I'll be the last shadow walking your side of the street
I'll be stranger talking, eyes you won't meet
I'll be the distant waving with the face to wear
And a smile left fading away unaware

Do you care

I'll be a word of warning, smoke in the sky
I'll be the one saying we when you keep saying I
I'll be in the dead leaves dancing, the wind in our hair
And the echo of departure resounding in the air

Do you care

--
Out of Air

I refuse, I refuse to take the pain
From the moon, cold reflections of the sun
I recall, I recall a little light
In your eyes, in your eyes

I refuse, I refuse to let it show
For tonight, it's the only thing I know
I recall, I recall a hunger glow
In your eyes, in your eyes

Running up my spine
Hanging in my veins
Stirring up my mind
It's not over

Bending 'round my waist
Pounding on my chest
Falling through my hair
Till I'm out of air

--
In Dreams

I know the silence of a room
From vast nights consumed in sheets and skin
I know the windows when they're closed
The blinds when they're unrolled
For no light gets in

I know it's a distance you grow
It's a sorrow you show
And when it shows

It shows in the mirrors you see
In dreams that cannot be, wide awake

It shows in the stranger you saw
A face from afar, you thought you knew

I know it's a distance you grow, it's a sorrow you show
And when it shows

--
If Pilots Go To Heaven

I've come across the border
To be where you are
I almost regret that I've come this far

Here the ocean's livid
Here the sky is raw
There's something about the waters
Clinging to the shore
It all looks so familiar
Like I, I've been here before

Now the clouds are broken
You must have cut them up
I guess I wasn't trained for this
I'm never quite enough

I'm only truly interested in what I do not know
And I have seen this harbor, the archipelago
I came to see you, and I, I thought you'd know

If this is all you give
This is all there is

If all pilots go to heaven
It takes an ocean of belief
There's something about the waters
Rushing into the sea
Reminds me of a pattern, and all we couldn't be

--
No Darkness

Today I'll cut the flowers
I will walk for hours
I still breathe in all that grows

Now that spring is coming
And the sun will shine
I will look up when it shows

And there will be no darkness
There will be no darkness
I will fill your space with light

Now the birds are singing
Somewhere dawn arrives

And there will be no darkness
There will be no darkness
I will fill your space with light

And it looks like hope, and it looks like hope, I will fill your space
 with light
And it looks like hope, and it looks like hope, I will fill your space
 with light
And it looks like hope, and it looks like hope, I will fade into the
 light
And it looks like hope, and it looks like hope, for today at least
 I'll try
