Track Name: Your Bell Don't Ring
Help me to rebuild all the bridges I've burned.
Please help me to get across.
From all of the lessons that I never learned,
I finally see what was lost.

Some say that heaven and earth are one in the same,
But it comes at too high a cost.
For we live on two feet with the burden of Cain,
And some of us die on a cross.

You could be my road map if it pleases you
Because there is nothing else that I would rather do
Than to rest here in your arms a while.

Help me to shed all the masks I have made,
Worn so long that they seem to be a part of my face,
Help me to shed all the masks I have made,
To throw them into the wind.

You could be my road map if it pleases you,
But I have been standing at your windows,
I have been knocking on the door,
I have been looking for something but there is nothing there,
And your bell don't ring anymore, not anymore.

'Cus you stay one step ahead of me,
So close but I just can't reach.
And I grasp at the tails of your coat left behind,
But it's something that I just can't find

You could be my road map if it pleases you
Because there is nothing else that I would rather do
Than to rest here in your arms a while.
But I have been standing at your windows,
I have been knocking on the door,
I have been looking for something but there is nothing there,
And your bell don't ring anymore, not anymore.
Track Name: Foreign Shores
I watch the sun as it's setting in through the trees,
Its soft pink glow connecting you to me.
I see a fish fighting the current of the stream.
Floating off in the water, like how I floated off at sea.

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind this place at all,
I just have to get back home, you see.
Across those waves, a thousand miles away,
Everyone is waiting there for me.

I take a long walk on the beach
just to clear my cluttered mind.
Everyone here has been so supportive and kind,
but it can't compare to what I left behind.

Chorus

'Cus I've checked every port that goes to foreign shores,
Just to find one that can bring me back to you,
But they all say it's too far and I can't get there by car,
So I guess we'll just have to make do.

Don't get me wrong, but I've been gone so long,
that I can hardly remember your face.
All memories fade, I guess man was not made
To linger for too long in just one place.
Track Name: The Ballad Of Margaret Pomeroy
I loved a man, I watched him from my tower
as he tilled and sowed his land
And clearly I remember
That lovely morning in late September
When he asked me for my hand
We talked about a thousand things
We made a thousand plans

Everybody knew that we loved each other so
Everybody knew our love was true
But I can safely say that no-one would have guessed
That my jealous sister loved him too

She followed me down to the watchtower
Where I would often sit
and mill around the thoughts inside my head
And there she locked me in the cellar
And as it is she left me there for dead
My bones did linger as time went on by
Now my ghost walks the castle and the wood nearby

Chorus

I would often see my love as he walked on down the lane
Even though I knew I would never speak to him again
But I know that he remembered me
Of this I can be Sure
For he had a heart as soft as gold
And certainly as pure

Chorus
Track Name: Jet Trails
Do you ever just look up
Look up at the sky
To the trees rising above us
And the jet trails passing by?

Do you ever wonder what they see
From way up in the clouds?
It could almost be beautiful
I can picture it somehow.

Don't you think it's funny that
We only see our familiar places
From our familiar paths?
And that we hardly understand
The places we give such praises
And that nothing can give us a hand.

And don't you think it is strange
that we don't even give it one shot in the dark now?
And sometimes I believe
that the fault lies with me
And then I look up at the stars
And they would not be any brighter
Even if I was up 5,000 feet

And it's probably just my imagination
It probably means nothing at all
It is nice to really understand
The world in which we live
But sometimes it can make us feel so small
Track Name: Crooked Blinds
I'm lazy so that you don't have to be. Look it up on Beautiful Dissonance, and check the rest of it out while you are there
Track Name: Two Feet in the Grave [edit]
I'm a long way from salvation.
I'm a long way from grace.
But I know I can make it,
If I can only make the change.
To tell the difference between what I want and what I need.
Because what I see and what I believe are two very different things.

I've got two feet in the grave, but I'm still standing up.
I don't know how I do it, all I know is that enough is enough
Track Name: Sunrise over Sea
I was up before the fishermen,
Up before that dawn,
Jumped up out of bed,
Hurried my feet across the lawn.
I wandered down a winding road.
Pitch black, and very steep.
But I would do it ten times over for the sunrise over sea.

I had heard some lovely stories told,
I had heard some impressive words,
I heard the lapping of the waves,
And the calling of the birds,
I had some expectations that would be hard to meet,
Yes I had some expectations for that sunrise over sea.

I walked on the beach for a minute or two,
Then climbed a rock to get a better view,
I glanced down at my watch,
And it read 5.23
So somehow I had missed that sunrise over sea.

One should not get one's hopes up,
One should not expect to see,
Anything at all that may not definitely be,
I did all that I could,
But those clouds prevented me,
From sharing in the wonder of the sunrise over sea.

I trudged back on homeward,
filled with bitter defeat,
and the cries of the gulls,
only seemed a mockery,
for every morning they would have the opportunity,
to fly above the cliffs and watch the sun rise over sea

And I don't know what possessed me
to want to turn around,
but when I did I saw a dot of red
poking out through the clouds,
I stood there for a long while,
as happy as could be,
to see only a tiny bit of the sunrise over sea
Track Name: So Close
See the sun as it sparkles on the water by 31,
And in through the trees comes a gentles summer's breeze.
And I just want to dip my feet in.
It is a crime, just a sin,
That there is a gate where I'm standing,
A sign that reads "no trespassing"
And it just kills me so, 'cus I'm so close.

So close, but so far away.
Don't mean to be cliche, but there is nothing else that I can say.

I haven't gone too far as the sun warms up my back and my guitar,
Though winter is far from over, it feels like any summer's day.
It has been so cold, but there is no snow to bee seen.
And the crest of the hill shines gold above that brilliant green.
And it just kills me so, 'cus I'm so close that I can almost feel it.

So close, but so far away.
Don't mean to be cliche, but there is nothing else that I can say.
