In the cold October sun She looks for what is gone Recognition she was owed No one seemed to know Fading light, the day will end Another year gone by Perhaps it’s time to tell the tale Of how she took a life Or was it just a thought she had Remembering a dream To break the silence with an act That no one would believe An open book against her heart Pages turning gray Keep it close, without a word Until the quiet fades Look for a place to go Out of the cold Stories are locked away And safe We’re just watching The time go by As we slip through Quiet days

See it through Another’s eyes Finding love That never dies Touch her arm But leave no trace If she could see me Would she wait Another week I say the lines Finding passion Every time If this is real How will I know Come alive For another show Think of me Years from now Wonder if I’ll be around In a world That tries too hard A simple tale Is all I want Look ahead And try to read Between the lines For what I need

The water’s cold But I don’t feel The freezing miles That lie beneath The creaking ice As I pass through With tired breath I know the truth Looking back I’ll recall Those who told me This would come I’ll keep moving Holding on To a winter That’s never gone That’s never gone
4.
Watch the lights fade to the distance Alone on a darkened road No one to call or come searching This time you’re on your own Cast a shadow a roadside stand The sun breaks through the dark The sky’s on fire with unspoken plans You wait for the day to start Remember each day like it was real The memories linger on Look around for a new idea Before your time is gone Turned so many corners Knows a little about life How it slips to entice Us closer every time Same old song what’s it all about

Left his coat By the door Growing faded And worn Never meant To stay so long He’d grown tired Of being alone Work to see Another day Growing older On the way On the porch Feel the breeze Watch the road She appears…She appears When he looks Into their eyes He knows what They’re trying to hide
6.
Out in the hills away from home Have another drink to keep me warm Through smoky air I hear them talk Of a troubled past and words of hope The tales are told many times ‘Til I know every line In the web we are caught We only see the smallest part The voices fade as I go Grab my things close the door Out in the hills away from home Stayin’ awhile then movin’ on
7.
03:21
Climb the fence Jump inside Then run away With what we find Hours pass And we grow tired Do we run away Or just stay quiet We were kids Who soon grew up Running away Wasn’t enough Always something Left to chance Afraid of losing What we never had

Need distraction in my life Magic has an open mind Guess which card’s in the pack Another look, put it back Sleight of hand, illusion timed Turn a penny to a dime I believed the tricks I saw Though I’ve seen them all before Nothin’ is as it seems Don’t believe all I’ve seen
9.
04:02
See the light shards Through the trees As I run home into those arms From a life that’s not for me In a well Just off the mountainside See the faces urging me on To grasp the time gone by Found my stride Know what it’s gonna be Looking back over the land I know I’ll never leave We’ll go on Strong as we ever were All those words nothing now As she takes my hand in hers Footsteps in a howlin’ wind They tried to take me I came back again
