YOU GET SO LONELY

YOU GET SO LONELY DON'T YOU

YOU GET SO LONESOME SOMETIME

 

THE LINE IS DOWN IN YOUR TOWN

THE LIE OF DISCONNECTION

COS YOU GET SO LONELY DON'T YOU

YOU GET SO LONESOME SOMETIMES

 

YOU FEEL THE GRIP OF LONGING

FROM THE ISLE OF UN-BELONGING

COS YOU GET SO LONELY DON'T YOU

YOU GET SO LONESOME SOMETIMES

 

THERE’S A LINE IN THE SAND

THAT YOU CAN'T AVOID

THE TRUTH IS YOU'RE NEVER ALONE

BUT YOU GET SO LONELY DON'T YOU

YOU GET SO LONESOME SOMETIMES

 

ON THE EDGE OF FAR BEYOND

DEVASTATED BY A SONG

COS YOU GET SO LONELY DON'T YOU

YOU GET SO LONESOME SOMETIMES

 

THERE’S A LINE IN THE SAND

THAT YOU CAN'T AVOID

THE TRUTH IS YOU'RE NEVER ALONE

BUT YOU GET SO LONELY DON'T YOU

YOU GET SO LONESOME SOMETIMES

 

THERE’S A LINE IN THE SAND

THAT YOU CAN'T AVOID

THE TRUTH IS YOU'RE NEVER ALONE

BUT YOU GET SO LONELY DON'T YOU

YOU GET SO LONELY DON'T YOU

 

YOU GET SO LONELY DON'T YOU

YOU GET SO LONELY DON'T YOU

 

LONELY LONELY

WAITING FOR A VOICE

I LOOKED ACROSS A STILL GLASS LAKE

NOT A RIPPLE ON IT, NOT A MINNOW’S WAKE

I COULD SEE THE VEINS ON DISTANT LEAVES

EVERY DETAIL SHINING AND BECKONING

 

I SAW A STRANGER ON THE OPPOSITE SHORE

COOKING UP A MEAL FOR ME AND WHAT’S MORE

I HEARD ELIJAH, I’M SURE IT WAS HIM

GET INTO THE WATER MAN & LOSE YOUR SIN

 

AND HEAVEN IS WAITING FOR A CHOICE

WAITING FOR A STILL CLEAR VOICE

AND HEAVEN IS WAITING FOR A CHOICE

WAITING FOR A STILL CLEAR VOICE

 

I’M LIFTED UP ABOVE THE WATER LINE

I FLY ACROSS TO THESTRANGER’S SIDE

I HEAR ELIJAH CALLING OUT FROM THE WILD

DRINK UP THIS WATER MAN AND LOSE YOUR PRIDE

 

AND SURE AS I’M LIVING, I DINED WITH THE ONE

HIS WORDS WERE BRIGHTER THAN A BILLION SUNS

HE SENT ME RUNNING I NEVER GET TIRED

BACK INTO THE VALLEY WHERE THE WORLD HAD DIED

 

AND HEAVEN IS WAITING FOR A CHOICE

WAITING FOR A A LITTLE NOISE

AND HEAVEN IS WAITING FOR A CHOICE

WAITING FOR A STILL CLEAR VOICE

 

AND NOW I’M WITNESS TO THE STRANGER’S TALE

ANY OTHER STORY, IS DOOMED TO FAIL

BUT HEAVEN OPENED FOR MY WRETCHED SOUL

AND LED ME TO HIM WHO MADE ME WHOLE

 

I LOOK ACROSS THAT SHEER GLASS LAKE

NOT A RIPPLE ON IT, NOT A MINNOW’S WAKE

FOREVER LISTEN FOR HIS STILL SMALL VOICE

AND I AM LIVING BECAUSE OF HIS CHOICE

 

AND HEAVEN IS WAITING FOR YOUR CHOICE

WAITING FOR A LITTLE NOISE

AND HEAVEN IS WAITING FOR A CHOICE

WAITING FOR A STILL CLEAR VOICE

AND HEAVEN IS WAITING FOR A CHOICE

WAITING FOR A STILL CLEAR VOICE

AND HEAVEN IS WAITING FOR A CHOICE

WAITING FOR THE STILL CLEAR VOICE

TOO FAR GONE

 

IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR SORROW

THERE’S A LOAD OF IT AROUND

FEEL IT DRAGGING LIKE A MILLSTONE

BRINGING EVERYBODY DOWN

 

IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR SORROW

KEEP AVOIDING EVERY CRIME

MERCY’S PROMISE OF TOMORROW

OR A MAN DOING TIME

 

AWAY FROM YOU IT’S TOO FAR GONE

AWAY FROM YOU IT’S TOO FAR GONE

 

I’M PANNING NOW FOR GOLD DUST

THE OLDEST RIVER’S SILTED RUST

THO NEVER QUITE ENOUGH LOVE

THE YELLOW LUCRE IN THE ROUGH

 

AWAY FROM YOU IT’S TOO FAR GONE

AWAY FROM YOU IT’S TOO FAR GONE

 

IN YOUR THORNY SORROW GRINNING

COS YOU PAID IN BLOOD BEFORE

I’LL TAKE IT BACK TO THE BEGINNING

AND THEN I’LL BLEED A LITTLE MORE

 

AWAY FROM YOU IT’S TOO FAR GONE

AWAY FROM YOU IT’S TOO FAR GONE

AWAY FROM YOU IS JUST TOO FAR GONE

 

TOO FAR DOWN, SO UNDERGROUND

 

IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR SORROW

KEEP AVOIDING EVERY CRIME

MERCY’S PROMISE OF TOMORROW

OR A MAN DOING TIME

TELL THE WORLD

SUBMARINE BLUE

 

 

DEEPLY asleep in a bathysphere

diving way deeper than down

from the pit I HAVE soared in your atmosphere

in the dazzling dark I was found

 

I go down, submarine blue

heaven knows you pay what's due

I go down, in gratitude found

WHERE the lights forever new

 

always SOME room for apology

FORGIVING ALL the people you love

the thing here that isnt biology

it's the fire in the belly of our love

 

and you Are a rock solid constance

and its lava that flows in your veins

it was gold when I melted from the First kiss

and its still liquid gold that remains

 

on the brink of something spectacular

thats the way you make it for me

if I get to be the man that I hope to be

will you come to that mountain with me

 

I go down, submarine blue

heaven knows you paY WHAT's due

I go down, in gratitude found

WHERE the lightS forever new

 

I go down, submarine blue

heaven knows you paY WHAT's due

I go down, submarine blue

WHERE the lightS forever new

SINGING THROUGH THE STORM

SINGING THROUGH THE STORM

AND YOU'RE HALFWAY TO HEAVEN MY FRIEND

IN THE END YOU KNOW

YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A CHANGE OF HEART

SINGING THROUGH THE STORM

 

WALKING THROUGH THE FIRE

JUST TO LET LOVE BE YOU'RE ONE DESIRE

AND NO BRIGHTER FLAME

THAN LIVING IN THE NAME OF LOVE

WALKING THROUGH THE FIRE

 

RUNNING FROM SORROW

THE SHELTER OF AN OPEN HEART

TO RUN TO TOMORROW

YOU HAVE TO LET THE TEARS FLOW NOW

SINGING THROUGH THE STORM

 

FLY YOUR PAPER PLANE

AT THE MERCY OF THE DRIVING RAIN

TO REMAIN IN HOPE

YOU'VE GOT TO LET YOUR FEAR GO NOW

FLY YOUR PAPER PLANE

 

SINGING THROUGH THE STORM

AND YOU'RE HALFWAY TO HEAVEN MY FRIEND

IN THE END YOU KNOW YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE A CHANGE

YOU KNOW YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A CHANGE OF HEART

SINGING THROUGH THE STORM

BURNING LOVE

twenty five, thrilled to be alive

just yesterday you WERE dancing in the aisle

and how the spirit of our love has grown

because of you i’ve never been alone

THE many years THEY come from up above

‘round the fire of our burning love

 

twenty five, O and what a ride

how many songs you've given me to write

AND HOW THE LOVIN's FROM a DEEPER ZONE

AND BABY I NEVER WANNA BE ALONE

THE many years WILL FALL from up above

‘round the fire of our burning love

 

YOU KNOW it's taken us so song

But baby THAT's just time

And time keeps ticking on

Best to pay it no more mind

 

TWENTY FIVE, THRILLED TO BE ALIVE

Just YESTERDAY WE WERE LAYING IN A PILE

MANY YEARS TO COME FROM UP ABOVE

‘ROUND THE FIRE OF OUR BURNING LOVE

THE MANY YEARS THEY FALL FROM UP ABOVE

‘ROUND THE FIRE OF OUR BURNING LOVE

 

BALL OF LIGHT

I’M BEING FOLLOWED BY A GREAT BIG BALL OF LIGHT

RACING THRU SPACE HURTLING THROUGH TIME

I’M BEING SWALLOWED BY A BLOOD KILLER MOON

JUST ONE SOLAR FLARE

AND I KNOW I’M LOST WITHOUT YOU TOO

 

I’M BEING FOLLOWED BY A GREAT BIG BALL OF LIGHT

I’M BEING SHADOWED BY A LUNAR MADNESS

MY BACK TO THE BRILLIANCE NOW

MY HANDS ARE TO THE PLOW

THE FUEL THE BATTLE LINES

I’M TAKING MY PEACE TO TOWN

 

INFIDELS , INFIDELS

INFIDELS , INFIDELS

INFIDELITY DARKENS MY WAY

 

I’M BEING FOLLOWED BY A CONSTANT KILLER WIND

I GOTTA KEEP MY FACE TO THE SON

MY BACK TO THE BRILLIANCE NOW

MY HANDS ARE TO THE PLOW

THE FUEL, THE BATTLE LINES

I’M TAKING MY PIECE TO TOWN

 

INFIDELS , INFIDELS

INFIDELS , WERE INFIDELS

INFIDELITY DARKENS MY WAY

INFIDELITY DARKENS MY WAY

HUNGER AND HATRED NOW

IN THE TURNING OF THE DIRT

I WILL NEVER LOSE THE HURT

OR THE FLICKERING FLAME

 

INFIDELS , INFIDELS

INFIDELS , WERE INFIDELS

 

 

ABOVE THE CITY

THERE'S A RISING IN THE PEOPLE

TO WAGE A PEACEFUL LIFE

THE HIGHWAY AND THE STEEPLE

FOR A GOOD MAN AND HIS WIFE

 

TWO HEARTS MAKE A RHYTHM

AN ENGINE-ROOM OF SONG

AT THE BOSOM OF HIS WOMAN

WHERE LOVE CAN DO NO WRONG

 

WE ALWAYS HAVE EACH OTHER

TO LIFT EACH OTHER UP

TO LIVE ABOVE THE HUNGER

STILL THIRSTING FOR THE CUP

 

HE LIVES ABOVE THE CITY

WHOSE HEARTBEAT QUICKENS DAWN

IT IS NO PLACE OF PITY

IN THE COLD LIGHT IT IS GONE

 

ON THE SURFACE PEOPLE SCRATCHING

FOR THE PURCHASE OF THE DUST

SCRATCH DEEPER & THEY'RE WATCHING

FOR THE REAPER IN THE RUST

 

OTHERS WALKING THRU THE WALLS

IN THE COMPANY OF ANGELS

SWEET FORGIVENESS IN THEIR SOULS

TO WELCOME ANY STRANGERS

 

HE LIVES ABOVE THE CITY

WHERE LOVE CAN DO NO WRONG

THIS IS A PLACE FOR PITY

EVERY HEARTBEAT IS A SONG

 

AND IT'S ONLY WHEN YOU'RE BROKEN

UNBURDENED BY YOU'RE PRIDE

YOU CAN SING OF WHAT'S UNSPOKEN

WITH NOTHING ELSE TO HIDE

 

AND HE LIVES ABOVE THE CITY

AND LOVE CAN DO NO WRONG

THIS IS A PLACE FOR PITY

EVERY HEARTBEAT IS A SONG
