We Could Be Together If I saw a sin in this world then you'd not be one sinning If I felt a stone being thrown Then you'd not be one throwing Chorus - WE could be together in a karma carnival - everything is you and me If I weren't a loner than I would be alone I could rent your acquaintence and tie you to my throne Chorus If we weren't too deserts we would be the rain and rain can not make glass to hide behind window panes. Chorus x 2

Woman 03:35
Woman Woman - she is my fever she collects kaleidescopes you know? And she waits with words to tell me - she owns part of my soul - and I already know. Woman - she's the survivor she has to lose before she wins she's the one who takes her chances i'm the one she takes them with Woman - she's the believer where dreams are too scarce to sell and she knows her lover well and she is bound to tell what I already know. She is bound to tell - what I already know.

After The Hurricane When you get alone - in a crowd - and your world grows thin. And the light - doesn't even - trickle in. After the hurricane - don't let me live the way you said you wished. Call me down - and I'll come - and sleep in your arms and we'll talk until the ghosts of midnight are all gone After the hurricane don't let me down the way you do to some. Promises you make - and try to keep - are gonna drive you crazy. to think you'd even trust - your promise - still amazes me. After the hurricane - please don't leave - the way - you said - you dreamed.
4.
Will Wait For you Will wait for you - I will wait for you - if you never come - raise cain in my life and I'll touch your heart when you walk along the same roads I stumble on. (bridge) Maybe you're afraid like me to surrender to these waking dreams - I will wait for you until you do - And I will follow your lead - not abandon you or leave you 'neath the waning moon before the break of dawn. Will wait for you - I will wait for you - truth is like the drug I wouldn't want to take - if the truth is bad news - and you don't want your shoes - on these same roads I stumble on. repeat bridge
5.
Who I Want To Be I can see us riding on the beach maybe soon it will be in reach writing poems in the sand building beauty with our hands It's who I want to be a stargazer spiritmaker it's where I want to be to bide my time Chorus - I want you and me to make this world together being free to be free my sweet girl I want you and me to make this world together being free to be free Maybe truth is like it is - only because this fear we're in what do you need to get high? is it your statue in the sky? do you want to be a stargazer - spiritmaker? what do you want to be Ms. journeytaker? Chorus
6.
Never In My Life Never in my life did I feel right until I felt the way you feel never in my life did I not mind being with someone who needs me (chorus) someday never comes until the day is done and you are so happy - someday's come and gone and with you now I breathe you're my ultimate companion. Never in my life I've loved so strong strength I once kept for myself. you know what has not gone wrong - in my life if you know you. (chorus)
7.
You Hold Me In Suspense Between Words You hold me in suspense between words clear as the silence holds the cold gun painting small scenes to me - of a circus of catastrophe. You hold me in suspense between words I hear every comma - quotation and question explaining the whole of your consortation. you must refrain from keeping love on the hide. I venture into submission and am touched into listening - only to your eyes - as they search the ceiling gently for lies. You hold me in suspense between words.
8.
Too Many Years Babe - do you think you could go? Back to the old man? Go back home? Babe - do you think you could go? Back to the old man? all Alone? Babe - where are you now? little runaway? on the prowl? babe - don't your chains- have any links - to hold you down? Babe - you say - time is meant - to be spent - and not wasted. and hey - too many years - since your eyes - have even faced his. So babe - don't you think you can go - back to the old man - go back home.
9.
Maybe It's Time Keeping you in mind someday you'll be mine maybe there's a distance just for now soon there'll come a day when we'll say it was a waste all the times we didn't spend together (chorus) ooooh - maybe it's time i made the move ooooh - maybe it's time that i talk to you oooooh - be myself and see if you still love me then. giving you my heart -cause it's been torn apart - by everyone I've ever known. you're always home alone - and I know that you sew - maybe you can sew it up and leave the thread for me. Chorus I just saw your face - put me out of place I know there comes a time you feel the same it's cruel to be unkind to someone who treats you kind i hope you don't forget what you have to regret. Chorus
10.
The Wishing Well Song And I've - seen that stranger inside - the one with no heart or soul - that's how I feel when you hide - and I know - that eventually sun will shine - and days will change for the best - no more putting love to the test. (pre- chorus) and I trust - this pain will soon be over - and I must - be glad 'cause I cried on your shoulder. (chorus) - time will tell who's built a wall - and we'll know whose side the wishing well is on. x2 repeat all lyrics
11.
This Means War I don't understand why I'm not your man what do you want from me? Why you run away when I pay to play Get you in your shackles again this means war you fools this means war you fools aaaahh - this means war you fools aaaaah - this means war you fools aaaaah - this means war you fools I am not alone we've begun to roam we're taking over the globe rejected music men - we'll raise our hopes again take the most we can home this means war you fools this means war you fools aaaahh - this means war you fools aaaaah - this means war you fools aaaaah - this means war you fools
12.
Goodbye Yesterday When no one answers me it's very plain to see what the answer is. I doubt you'll stay alone your naked body's a poem God knows poems should be read. it's not fair to me but I know I'm not wanted For what you gave to me I shouldn't have responded and I'm not sorry or sad. Chorus - goodbye yesterday I don't know why I'm holding on Goodbye Yesterday - Next thing you know my love will be gone When I took you aside who was the one who cried? who was the one who died? you could have been a lot more young. you could have made me fall in love - a couple more times. it's not fair to you for me to go on - but I want your guilt to show I want you to feel this pain And i'm not sorry or sad. Chorus
13.
Rebel Road 05:21
Rebel Road Slow down old country wind one more time and she's gone - one last round and she's gone back home again People moving so slow in the country but time goes so fast time moves so slow in the city as the people go past Chorus - rolling through the country wind rebel road leads to my best friend we've got to begin again for tonight is gonna lead me home x2 You know as you get older that old girl starts to looking good and everytime you see her you always feel like you're heading home. It's been years since since she's lived in the plains but now he's gone away summers all they have now and he knows that she's the one. Chorus
