Track Name: Dove of Mine
Roaring, rolling down we fall
Oh, I come when you call
Oh, I come when you call
Well, back it up and hide your eyes
Turn your face to the wall
Turn your face to the wall
Dove of mine

Bury me, I lost my mind
I’ll hide under the snow
Deep down under the snow
Well, bat my eyes and rub my nose
When you come and you go
Don’t you come and you go
Dove of mine

Spin ‘round, shudder now to think
When you told me goodbye
Don’t you tell me goodbye
Well, by the sword we live and die
But you never know why
No, you never know why

Thou wilt drop out
Dove of mine
Track Name: Lark of My Heart
Lark of my heart - dance in the dark and say you love me
Lark of my heart - right from the start and say you love me
Lark of my heart - take back the night and say you want me
Lark of my heart - turn up the light and say we can be
The same, same, same, same…

I can see it in your eyes, can smell it in your lies
You know I want you
And I can hear it in your sighs, I can feel it in your lines
You know I want you
Hello, hello, hello, hello
I can see it in your face, on every marble place
You know I want you
And I can feel it in your grace, in every golden trace
You know I want you

What can I do? Oh boy, your mood creates the weather
What can I do? Oh, how I miss the sound of thunder
What can I do? Roll down around and lift your finger
What can I do? Give me your hand, it’s now or never
Today, today, today, today

I can see it in your eyes, can smell it in your lies
You know I want you
And I can hear it in your sighs, I can feel it in your lines
You know I want you
I know, I know, I know, I know
I can see it in your face, on every marble place
You know I want you
And I can feel it in your grace, in every golden trace
You know I want you
Track Name: All Our Angels
Calvary running, cavalry coming
Straight as an arrow
Darling, darling
Wandering divot, lost it at shipwreck
Cut to the marrow
Don’t say, don’t say

All of my angels have left me
All of mine, all of my
When all of your angels have left you
All of mine, all of my

Sweetest kisses follow you down
Sweetest kisses follow you down
Soldier, soldier

The heart is a virtue no one can hold to
Be it too narrow
Darling, darling
Mine is your island, a haven divided
My little sparrow
Don’t say, don’t say

All of my angels have left me
All of mine, all of my
When all of your angels have left you
All of mine, all of my

Sweetest kisses follow you down
Sweetest kisses follow you down

Run, run - not far enough
The ground, ground - not high enough
At war, war - not hard enough
To sun, sun - not bright enough
Our love, love - not light enough
Your map, map - don’t say enough
My song, song - told far too much
For long, long, long

All of my angels have left me
All of mine, all of my
When all of your angels have left you
All of mine, all of my

Sweetest kisses follow you down
Sweetest kisses follow you down
Soldier, soldier
Track Name: Now and Then
Oh, to be young again
Blood, blood is on my hands
And oh, to be loved again
I’d give, give you my best laid plan

Oh, come and dance again
And take, take me by the hand
And oh, come and dream again
And hold, hold to me now and then

'Cos if the road to hell is paved with our intentions
It’s a fine, fine, fine way to love
But if the hand you deal is hidden in your back pocket
Don’t you dare, dare, dare come around

I found me a bitter man
To give, give me my daily bread
And I’ll find, find me a better man
To take, take, take me as I am

'Cos if the road to hell is paved with our intentions
It’s a fine, fine, fine way to love
But if the hand you deal is hidden in your back pocket
Don’t you dare, dare, dare come around
Track Name: Waiting Around Again
Tumbling low, toiling slow
Crawling along the hours to you
I sang today, my cares away
Waiting around again

Stranded in time, you on my mind
Miles from where I want to be
But I laughed today, my cares away
Waiting around again

Sweetness, won’t you stay

Frozen in space, all out of place
Wishing you were here next to me
I cried today, my cares away
Waiting around again

Over the ground, under the sound
Into the dark you call to me
You danced today, your cares away
Waiting around again

Sweetness, won’t you stay
Track Name: Fools Rush In
Calling through the pines
Trembling on the vine
Breathing down your skin
Only fools rush in
Foolish by and by
Falling from the sky
Oh, lover bury me
Under lock and key

Come whatever will
Conjured in the still
Coursing through my veins
Chances waxed and waned
Love, don’t leave me cold
Lonely, growing old
Letters in my hands
Writing in the sand

Go down now, love - what do you say?

Whisper through the trees
Whistle in the breeze
Breathing down your skin
Only fools rush in
Track Name: Bright Star
All eyes were on your glow
When you scattered on my shore
Head on from Scorpio
With a trail of vertigo
I called you for my own
And then light years you rode
My kismet meteor
Burnt out when I took hold

Not now, not then
Forever never naught
The tie that binds
Your torrent bright and tumbling

Down, down, down, down

The straight and narrow
Is the pathway you chose
The long and winding road
Is the journey you trode

Not now, not then
Forever never naught
The tie that binds
Your torrent bright and tumbling

Down, down, down, down
Track Name: Maker of My Sorrow
A good man is hard to find
What’s his is yours and mine to throw, oh
He had an angry head
He had a heavy heart to hold poison in the spring

With an orchid in his hand
And a shadow on his thumb
In the barrel of a gun
Me, I will find my love

Oh, oh - Lord knows where did he go
Keeper of my heart’s joy, maker of my sorrow
Oh, oh - Lord knows where did he go
Keeper of my heart’s joy, maker of my sorrow

A good man is hard to find
God knows how I have tried repose, oh
Give me my aching head
Give me my broken heart and cold a woman cannot hold

With a diamond on my hand
And the water on my tongue
In the barrel of a gun
Me, I resign my love

Oh, oh - Lord knows where did he go
Keeper of my heart’s joy, maker of my sorrow
Oh, oh - Lord knows where did he go
Keeper of my heart’s joy, maker of my sorrow

Dealer of my heavy hand
Healer of my wounded heart
Lord knows where did he go
Lord knows where did he go
Lord knows where did he go
Lord knows where did he go
Lord knows where did he go
Track Name: Wax Nostalgic
This is that, Lord knows how did it go?
These days for you all things I never knew
Day in day out pure as the driven snow
These days to you all things I never do
Oh, bitter cold and stealer of my soul

Over, under - steady as it goes
These days, what make all games I never play
Ever never easy as it should
These days, what may all words I never say
Foxes, foxes circling your mouth

Hear me hear you - lovely, might you say
Today a name, a minuet away
High time, high tide - you brought me to my low
Today a place we dare to never go
Hunted hunter - cover me in dirt
Track Name: Only For Today
Found inbound unfettered to the homeland
Forget regret, I do the best that I can
Your words, birds flying o’er the ocean
I heard a word pin me to the mainland

Egress, egret - we’re two birds of a feather
A stone was thrown, and never mind the weather
Unhinge the wind- a fortress in the venture
In light, take flight - encircling the never

La la la la la la la la
If only for today, today
La la la la la la la la
Darling come what may, what may
Whether you will wander you will
Weather you will wander you will take

Unclear, my dear - drop the coin in, pull the lever
Condoned, unknown - forgettable forever
I place your face on every wooden stranger
I tried my luck but never knew the danger

So farewell, my hell - I only dream in color
Grown, unknown - I’ll be a better lover
One day, some way - I’ll yearn to find another
If fate won’t take us holding to each other

La la la la la la la la
If only for today, today
La la la la la la la la
Darling come what may, what may
La la la la la la la la
If only for today
La la la la la la la la
Only for today
