• Look out of any window
    Any morning, any evening, any day
    Maybe the sun is shining
    Birds are winging, no rain is falling from a heavy sky
    What do you want me to do
    To do for you to see you through?
    For this is all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago

    Walk out of any doorway
    Feel your way like the day before
    Maybe you'll find direction
    Around some corner where it's been waiting to meet you
    What do you want me to do
    To watch for you while you're sleeping?
    Then please don't be surprised when you find me dreaming too

    Look into any eyes
    You find by you; you can see clear to another day
    Maybe been seen before
    Through other eyes on other days while going home
    What do you want me to do
    To do for you to see you through?
    It's all a dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago

    Walk into splintered sunlight
    Inch your way through dead dreams to another land
    Maybe you're tired and broken
    Your tongue is twisted with words half spoken and thoughts unclear
    What do you want me to do
    To do for you, to see you through?
    A box of rain will ease the pain and love will see you through

    Just a box of rain, wind and water
    Believe it if you need it, if you don't just pass it on
    Sun and shower, wind and rain
    In and out the window like a moth before a flame

    And it's just a box of rain, I don't know who put it there
    Believe it if you need it or leave it if you dare
    And it's just a box of rain, or a ribbon for your hair
    Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be there

  • When I was hoppin' freights and makin' payments on the farm
    Here between the angels and the deep blue sea
    You were runnin', laughin', growin' sheltered from the storm
    Dreamin' of the day the moon would set you free
    Yeah, to sing your siren song so sweet and warm

    River run deep
    River run slow
    Get a little restless
    Wanna see some whales blow

    River run cold
    River run clear
    That feeling always gets to me
    'Round about this time of year

    Scoutin' unknown borders under multi-colored moons
    In the wildest flights of cosmic mystery
    Rang a single soarin' tone that strung the sky in tune
    As the silence in my heart rose from the sea
    Aaah, to greet you in the dawn with a pale harpoon

    River run restless
    River run high
    Runnin' thru a hailstorm
    Try to catch a star on the fly

    River run muddy
    River flow like tears
    Cocoon of life surroundin' us
    Holdin' all our hopes and fears

    Reach behind the wind
    Search beyond the stars
    We're the life on Mars

    When the day grows dark and scary scatterin' the light
    All the colors run away and hide behind your knees
    The same sweet thunder tumbles rollin' down the night
    Like a mothership that calls for you and me
    Come on, and drift along that sky river bright

    River run swiftly
    River run wide
    Feel like sailin'
    On the morning tide

    River run golden
    River run true
    Set a course and follow
    Ooooh, the star that leads to you

  • Chopped olive sandwiches, roses and wine
    Cold ripe persimmons, my sweet Clementine

    There's a chill in the meadow, of bottomless time
    I go on, I go on, I cannot fill my cup
    There's a hole in the bottom, the spring has dried up

    I run through the forests of linear time
    Chop through the branches and cut through the vines

    I'll be back in a moment, though it may take me years
    In the lava rock canyons corroded with fears
    Of corruptible bodies and grief beyond tears

    I'll go on till I hear the sweet voices behind
    That I've left for the comfort of cold Clementine

  • Will your high hopes get you there
    Goal so far and yet so near
    You can't ignore the writing on the wall
    Every time you rise you fall
    End's nowhere in sight at all
    Why should you pick it up and try again

    Give it up, 'cause you can't win
    Let it go while you still can
    Gave it all you had, now you're feelin' bad
    So you're gone, ready to roam
    You come on so strong with that same sad song
    Wherever you go
    Run along, take your ball and go home

    Promised yet another chance
    Forbidden just a single glance
    So much rides on what you say and do
    Discarded truths and famous myths
    Tales that life deceives you with
    Certain things you always thought you knew

    Helpful hands that pull you down (note 1)
    Smaller minds turn you around
    Friends in need are never really true
    So why should you put trust in this
    The bridge above the dark abyss
    You never learned you can't make all the rules

    Run along, take your ball and go home
    Take a hike, we ain't got all night
    Take your ball, get out my house, go home

  • When the cardboard cowboy dreams and his cornucopia
    Opens up the sky and blows my mind to the corners of
    [Far in bar rent shine] running beneath high trembling dove
    Leaving me transfixed and raving in the wake of the hammer blow

    On my way out of town I stumbled on the shards of a hungry [scream]
    And further up into the backdoor circle, where the [power and crystal sea]
    [Could this go rise by all allow brater] on the strength of an anguished sigh
    And a paranoid re-entry blanket flies sleeping on a sling shot ride

    As my patchwork [world/quilt] unravels, I ramble yes too high
    [From the looping antrobus with his magic meant so high]
    Shining out a masquerade from dawn to alpha plus
    Watching mashed potatoes dribble in the heat of reality's earth

    [For the intro doom from] running to him
    It wasn't ever so
    Turns the wall into the sky above me, there is no place to run

  • Firefly
    Can you see me?
    Shine on, glowing
    Brief and brightly

    Could you imagine (note 1)
    One summer day
    That same night
    Be on your way

    Do you remember?
    Hearts were too cold
    Seasons had frozen us (note 2)
    Into our souls

    People were saying
    The whole world is burning
    Ashes were scattered
    Too hard to turn (note 3)

    Upside out
    Or inside down
    False alarm, the only game in town
    No man's land, the only game in town (note 4)
    Terrible, the only game in town

    Don't you hear me?
    Seen unclearly

    What is a man
    Deep down inside
    But a raging beast
    With nothing to hide

  • No more time to tell how
    This is the season of what
    Now is the time of returning
    With our thought jewels polished and gleaming

    Now is the time past believing
    The child has relinquished the reign
    Now is the test of the boomerang
    Tossed in the night of redeeming

    Eight-sided whispering hallelujah hatrack
    Seven-faced marble eye transitory dream doll
    Six proud walkers on jingle-bell rainbow
    Five men writing in fingers of gold
    Four men tracking the great white sperm whale
    Three girls wait in a foreign dominion
    Ride in the whalebelly
    Fade away in moonlight
    Sink beneath the waters
    To the coral sands below
    Now is the time of returning

  • Blue light rain, whoa, unbroken chain
    Looking for familiar faces in an empty window pane
    Listening for the secret, searching for the sound
    But I could only hear the preacher and the baying of his hounds

    Willow sky, whoa, I walk and wonder why
    They say love your brother but you will catch it when you try
    Roll you down the line boy, drop you for a loss
    Ride out on a cold railroad and nail you to a cross

    November and more as I wait for the score
    They're telling me forgiveness is the key to every door
    A slow winter day, a night like forever
    Sink like a stone, float like a feather

    Lilac rain, unbroken chain
    Song of the Saw-Whet owl
    Out on the mountain it'll drive you insane
    Listening to the winds howl

    Unbroken chain of sorrow and pearls
    Unbroken chain of sky and sea
    Unbroken chain of the western wind
    Unbroken chain of you and me

  • Gonna wave, gonna wave
    Gonna wave to the wind
    Gonna wave my way
    My way on through the wind
    Gonna wave, gonna wave
    Gonna wave to the wind
    Gonna wave my way to
    Places I never have been

    Gonna wave to the curious people (note 1)
    Looking on from the side of
    The road as I'm rolling on by
    Wave goodbye to the trouble
    That's always on my mind
    Gonna jumpstart my life
    Or go down trying

    Gonna wave to the memories
    I carry in my heart and the
    New ones I'll find along my way
    To the new millennium
    Reeling round the bend like
    A dove or some dark-winged bird of prey

    Gonna wave, gonna wave
    Gonna wave to the wind
    Gonna wave my way
    My way on through the wind
    Gonna wave, gonna wave
    Gonna wave to the wind
    Gonna wave my way to the
    Edge of the world and jump in

    Gonna snap like a rippling banner (note 2)
    Sailing sheets to the breeze over
    Cloudy oceans to the moon (note 3)
    I could hold out forever
    Keeping it together
    Or wish upon a star and call the tune

    Lift my voice like the young man (note 4)
    Broken in the war who
    Cries out to know the reason why (note 5)
    Gonna stand and deliver (note 6)
    A passionate song to the
    High wide and handsome morning sky

    Gonna wave, gonna wave
    Gonna wave to the wind
    Gonna wave my way
    My way on through the wind
    Gonna wave, gonna wave
    Gonna wave while the wind
    Plays the stars, the sky, the
    Moon and the night like a hymn

    Gonna ride with the rolling thunder (note 7)
    Let the sky crack assunder
    As lightning cries out of the rain
    Gonna wade across rivers
    Gathered in the stream from the
    Mountains that rise above the plain

    Wave away my confusion
    That drives this delusion (note 8)
    So long I forgot that I could fly
    Soar aloft like a songbird
    Dancing in the wind
    Singing long, singing loud, singing high

    Gonna wave, gonna wave
    Gonna wave to the wind
    Gonna wave my way
    My way on through the wind
    Gonna speak to the breeze
    Add my voice to the wind
    Singing: say, can you see
    By the dawn's early light streaming in?
