Track Name: Life on the Border
Why do you wait
For better days to come! Fly over ground
Go straight up through the clouds

Your life on the border
You have always been! In that space between
Memories fading
A future is waiting
Out in the water
A pearl has grown
Where the pain was thrown!
Deeper and deeper
You're diving to find her

What do you want ?
Do you really know ?
Set sail to the point
Where water meets the sky

Time is a healer
So hard to see
What is meant to be
Show me the meaning
Of all that I'm feeling
Out on the water
So far away
From the games we play
Scatter your ashes
Build a new fire

Lay your body on the cold ground
Lift your spirit up and hear the sound
My lover you will always be
Like a paper fire burning free

Your life on the border
You have always been
In that space between
Memories fading
A future is waiting
Out on the water
A pearl has grown
Where the pain was thrown
Deeper and deeper
You're diving to find her
Track Name: Before You Knew Me
Before you knew i was all ready lost
A thousand miles from the man i was

Before you lay with me i lost my way
I have no memory of a higher place

I fell into you
Breaking my soul
Against your heart
Breaking my soul
Crystal clear
Against your heart

Before you love me you must know the truth
I have no remedy for the hurt in you

Before the morning comes I hold you near
Face our enemies that are hiding here

I fell into you
Breaking my soul
Against your heart
Breaking my soul
Crystal clear
Against your heart
Track Name: The Way I Live My Life
A walking shadow
Got left behind
A falling darkness
And the street lights that shine

Stepping over
Across the line
Dissolution
And the freedom you find

I know you want me to come home again
I know you've waited for me all your life
I know that nothing's gonna change the way
I live my life

So you're going
A thousand miles
From Wyoming
To defend a child

A mother's daughter
A father's son
In your blood line
The same rivers run

I know you want me to come home again
I know you've waited for me all your life
I know that nothing's gonna change the way
I live my life

It's only love
You're looking for
You got it baby
You needed more
The way you live your life
Track Name: Empires on Fire
Love, it's in my veins
Under a darkened sky we meet again! Like a ghost, you're walking through me
There are times when all I feel is pain! I'm tired of walking alone
Won't you stay?
I need you here by my side

Empires on fire
Two worlds collide
When the blind lead the blind
Through the darkness shine
Empires on fire
I watch the flames grow higher

Love, it's on your lips
From the edge your life slowly slips
From the dark you make your way
Down the lonely road where we used to play
This time I won't let rage draw the line! Between what's yours
And what is mine

Empires on fire
Two worlds collide
When the blind lead the blind
Through the darkness shine
Empires on fire
I watch the flames grow higher

Wide awake when the wolves cry
Staring straight in the whites of there eyes
Somewhere out in the lost life
You find...
Love is not weak or blind

Love is lying wide awake
Underneath every breath that you take
Satisfied to throw your stones
Across the border to our homes
Now I see what I have lost
And I know I must pay the cost
To love you like I used to do
Let the morning shine through
Track Name: How I Was Hoping
The past is gone
Future is waiting
Where are you standing ?
Get your feet on solid ground
The water is rising
You can’t swim across
Wearing your armour
Leave your heart on the rocks

How I was hoping the wounds we had opened would heal
How I was hoping the love we had broken would heal

The cane fields are burning
Black smoke in the sky
Ashes returning back to the soil

It came from the east
Wild thundering storm
The veil between us and the lie here has gone

How I was hoping the wounds we had opened would heal
How I was hoping the love we had broken would heal
How I was hoping that someday you finally would feel

How I was hoping the wounds we had opened would heal
How I was hoping the love we had broken would heal
How I was hoping that someday
Our love is coming back
Are you coming back?
Track Name: Searchlights On
Searchlights on looking for you
In a burned out world you shine through
You came to call this your home
But will it ever be what you want it to be
Be free

There's something out there in the dark
Shining only for you
I feel a fire in my heart
There's something out there in the dark
Searchlights on looking for you
I believe in the soul but I have no proof
I dive alone in the sea at night
No longer terrified of the truth
I would find beneath

There's something out there in the dark
Shining only for you
I feel a fire in my heart
There's something out there in the dark
I'm tired of waiting for the right time
To come and give me what is mine
It's someone else's dream tonight
But it's not going to be enough for me
I need to shine bright
I need to shine

There's something out there in the dark
Shining only for you
I feel a fire in my heart
There's something out there in the dark
Track Name: One by One
I won't cry
When we say goodbye
I won't try to be strong
When you're gone

I'm wide awake
I feel the ties that will not break
Out in the storm you have no form
When you're gone

One by one, we all become undone
Two by two, true love will find me and you

I can't breathe
Or feel alive underneath these trees
Out in the field walking blind
It's a dream

One by one, we all become undone
Two by two, true love will find me and you

I see it in your eyes again, I see it in your eyes again
Your buried in disguise again, I see it in your eyes
I see it in your eyes again, I see it in your eyes again
Your buried in disguise again, I see it in your eyes

One by one, dry your tears in the morning sun
Two by two, true love will find me and you
One by one, We slowly come undone
Two by two, My love, me and....
Track Name: Dying With You Baby
Nothing left to say
Nowhere else to go
It's only you and me here on my own

Shallow empty days
Passing street parades
We both know something's got to change

I got you red roses but still you sleep
I got no words for keeping you alive

I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here
Dying with you baby
I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here
Dying with you baby, I am

Well I had a taste
Of that perfect place
Who am I to say you can’t replace

Took the morning train
Past the dawn lit harbor
For seven days a fire burned for love

I got new eyes for loving
Got more than faith
I got this boat for crossing through time

I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here
Dying with you baby
I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here
Dying with you baby, I am

I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here
Dying with you baby
I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here
Dying with you baby
Track Name: Cease Fire
The rocks weigh heavy upon your feet!
As you walk down narrow winding streets!
In shadows and violence be careful where you lay! It's the saddest story for you today!
!
Lay down your weapons now!
No one can win this war!
Cease fire and call a truce!
Cut your self loose!
!
In an ivory tower you wait for someone!
To bring you a message of a new born son!
For a peaceful life the angels cry!
"God sleeps right by your side"!
!
Lay down your weapons now!
No one can win this war!
Cease fire and call a truce!
Cut your self loose!
!
The rocks weigh heavy upon your feet!
As you walk down narrow winding streets!
In shadows and violence be careful where you play! It's the saddest story for you today!
Track Name: Turn The Soil
Plant a seed
Turn the soil
Hold this life and then you lose it well
All the same
Born of steel
Hardened hearts cannot be made to feel
50,000 miles from home
I can hear your rising storm
Through the dark and clear unknown

Tonight tonight tonight, You lie
And say we were in love, Oh why
For me, for me, for me, Go blind
Tonight, tonight, tonight, We lie

Breaking waves
On your back
A pound of flesh for everything you lack
Plant a seed
Turn the soil
Hold this life and then you lose it well

50,000 miles from home
I can hear your rising storm
Through the dark and clear unknown

Tonight tonight tonight, You lie
And say we were in love, Oh why
For me, for me, for me, Go blind
Tonight, tonight, tonight, We lie

A rage of ruin
And morning light
Fields of colour
A fallen sky
A raging river
We are torn apart
The silent distance
That breaks your heart

Tonight tonight tonight, You lie
And say we were in love, Oh why
For me, for me, for me, Go blind
Tonight, tonight, tonight, We lie
