RESPECTIVELY SWOLLEN

The child's cradle has been calling
It says no bird can sing like you
And I'm not accustomed much to strangers
But I heard that you enjoyed the view

They say come down from resepectively swollen
And tie yourself here,
But I know what they're asking of you
And I don't expect that from you
And I hope that you enjoy the view

And Local Morning Glory's sighing
Ah but the sound means nothing new
And reason said to take a look to see
Ah just to catch a glimpse of you

They say come down from resepectively swollen
And tie yourself here
But I know what they're asking of you
And I don't expect that from you
And I hope that you enjoy the view
And I hope that you enjoy the view

WON'T YOU DANCE

Reach for the stars, ah part your hands
Oh that you'd take me now for a dance
And it's true that you're not a bad man
You're just not very bold dear
And one shouldn't worry there's age in your eyes only show it When you're saying goodbye
Or have you grown lame from your hands in
Your pants you might stop getting old dear

Won't you dance
Get your feet off the floor
Oh dance with me darling

Won't you dance
Get your feet off the floor
Oh dance with me darling

'Cause you are worth dancing for

Reach for the stars, ah part your hands
Oh that you'd take me now for a dance
And it's true that you're not a bad man
You're just not very bold dear
And one shouldn't worry there's age in goodbye
Lean your head back oh to catch the light
Or have you grown lame from your hands in
Your pants you might stop getting old dear

Won't you dance
Get your feet off the floor
Oh dance with me darling

Won't you dance
Get your feet off the floor
Oh dance with me darling

'Cause you are worth dancing for
Worth dancing for


NERVOUS

Took me by surprise today
When you asked me if I was okay
And just cause I walked away
Doesn't mean I had nothing to say

Ohhhh
Get so
Get so
Get so
Nervous

Get so
Get so
Get so
Nervous
I

Thought of you last night again
Dreams consumed with what could have been
And play back all I could have said
Mistakes I made while I lie in bed

Ohhhh
Get so
Get so
Get so
Nervous

Get so
Get so
Get so
Nervous
I


THE BIRD AND THE FOOL

If I grew wings,
Would you still follow
And could you give up the smoke in your eyes

But I don't think you've noticed
Darling what it means to you
Your playing tricks on the Bird and the Fool

If I grew wings,
To lift you higher,
Ah to lift your light far above me

And the clouds seemed right for the lighting
Ah and they suited you
When we were still just a Bird and a Fool

And if I grew wings
Would you grow old with me
Where the light and the life grew into you

Implore the light from Heaven
Ah let it perch in you
And we'd be more than a Bird and a Fool.

If I grew wings,
Would you still follow
And could you give up the smoke in your eyes

But I don't think you've noticed
Darling what it means to you
Your playing tricks on the Bird and the Fool


THE GREAT FALL


Remember why you took your love
And buried what you knew
And every man envied what you had
By the time you through

And ohh look at you
Now look at you
And you once praised by kings
Ah there was light in you
But ohh look at you

And when you said that you were born
And I believed you
And that the wind might take you up tonight
And ohh how it carried you

And ohh look at you
Now look at you
And you once saught by kings
Ah for the light you knew
But ohh look at you

Remember when you took your love
And how it burned in you
And you might have refound what you had
Ah when I look at you

And ohh look at you
Now look at you
And wiser men have saught to find
Ah what you already knew
But ohh look at you
Ohh look at you
Ohh look at you
Ohh lalala
Ohhh


BOUGHT A TICKET FOR A PLANE

Bought a ticket for a plane
Try to escape from all the pain
Smile and wave as you pass

The hollow man he takes his toll
As he steals your face and you sold
And slowly tears away your soul

You traded friends and family
For your riches and your vanity
You will walk this road alone


Take me back to where I was
Before I bleed out on the floor.
Lord, help me make it to the door..

Take me back to where I was
Before I bleed out on the floor.
Lord, help me make it to the door..
'Cause I can't take it anymore


Bought a ticket for a plane
Try to escape from all the pain
Smile and wave as you pass


UNIMPORTANT INK

Unimportant ink,
Bleeds when you say
Dreams of trains and damned streets won't fade away
Make them come out strange,
Line them up and throw away
Eyes that seem so helpless
Make the voices sing
Things I want to say
Pray somehow that through
Through this song I will find a way
Things I want to say
Beautiful excuses you'll compose some day

And ohh aren't you beautiful
And it's beautiful your heart feels that way

The miser in his hour
Being only ours
Flew around the world just to be with you
Ticking clock towers
Ah pass the hours
Ah that he has 'til he can look at you

And ohh aren't you beautiful
And it's beautiful your heart feels that way


OF A BURNED OUT STAR

And throw away your dancing shoes
And catch the light to lure the moon
From Heaven dear

And now that I can see it's true
You tricked the man inside the moon
Into staying there

And maybe you're not quite right here tonight
And maybe you're not quite right here tonight
But who says you should be?

And take me off with you to fly
Could we fall into holes in the sky
And laugh at them

And I went dancing in your eyes
You stole the blue from the sky
And captured it

And maybe you're not quite right here tonight
And maybe you're not quite right here tonight
But who says you should be?


SOMEONE TO SING TO

I'd learn the words if you'd be someone to sing to
'Cause I thought I saw something in you
And darling some things must change
But this song shall remain the same

Lalalalala

Old man don't stand so close to open windows
There's nothing to carry you away
And dreams are there 'til you wake
And when you do your heart starts to break.

Lalalalala
Lalalalala


ANGEL SONG

Traveling down a road I've never gone before
I'm searching for a way and I going along
It's getting dark too dark for me to see
Then I hear an angel she's singing to me

Ohhhhh oh Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh oh Ohhhhh

Come with me and I'll show you the way
We'll go together and travel for days
And we can take it easy and talk like old friends
And as we carry on I'll sing you this song

Ohhhhh oh Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh oh Ohhhhh

Followed her over hill and through bend
And as I followed I was distracted by men
I talked awhile then I tried to break free
Angel I called but I lost her through the trees

Ohhhhh oh Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh oh Ohhhhh

Angel, angel I can't find the way
She was there leading and lighting my way
Searched for the path all night and all day
Exhausted I sat as I heard a sound fade
             
Ohhhhh oh Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh oh Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh oh Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh oh Ohhhhh
