Track Name: Bronze
BRONZE


INTRO
Don’t quite know
Where we will go
Oh oh oh (2x)


V1
Old dust roads
Dust is swirling round our weary souls
Burning breeze
Bronze the only color that we see
Days gone by
On and on and by and by and by
We will tread
We will tread until we’re dead


CH
Don’t quite know
Where we will go
Oh oh oh (2x)


V2
Dawn dark still
Waiting for the light to rise and spill
High noon now
We are far from where we started out
Bruised by time
Throwing us an empty empty line
Could you please
Could you plea for me to bleed


CH
Don’t quite know
Where we will go
Oh oh oh (3x)


V3
We we we proceed
Wistfully into the evening
Lay lay lay me down
Down onto my bed upon the ground


CH
Don’t quite know
Where we will go
Oh oh oh (4x)
Track Name: Gems And Bones
GEMS AND BONES


V1
I try to say goodbye
This morning good morning
When I find myself inside
You’re living there so fierce and fair


V2
And I try to say goodnight
Tomorrow, oh sorrow
When I climb limbs of mine
You’re seated there my breast is bare



CH
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I will not stay afraid


V3
My eyes scan the sky
A crow appears black and light
As she sows gems and bones
Sticks and seeds, the pretty things


CH
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I will not stay afraid


B
Da da da, da da da da da da


CH
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I will not stay afraid
Track Name: Hold You Tonight
HOLD YOU TONIGHT


V1
Should I forget you oh
Do I need to let you go
Holding onto you in my mind
Every shadow hides your face
You're the one I can't replace
Oh I know because I have tried


V2
I hear you call my name
Voices go from where they came
I can feel the echo inside
If only to pretend
I imagine once again
We collapse and then we collide



CH
Is everybody wrong
Is everybody right
Does it really matter tonight
‘Cause everybody longs
And everybody cries
I just want to hold you tonight (2x)



B
Tonight
Oh I just want to hold you tonight (4x)


V3
I see you in my dreams
Monochrome and memory
Everything a moment in time
Can we shine within the dark
If i touch you will you spark
Burning up again we ignite


CH
Is everybody wrong
Is everybody right
Does it really matter tonight
‘Cause everybody longs
And everybody cries
I just want to hold you tonight (3x)


B
Tonight tonight
Oh I just want to hold you tonight (2x)


CH
Is everybody wrong
Is everybody right
Does it really matter tonight
‘Cause everybody longs
And everybody cries
I just want to hold you tonight
Tonight
Track Name: Making Love On The Mountain
MAKING LOVE ON THE MOUNTAIN


V1
Making love on the mountain
Making love in the cold starlight
Making love on the mountain
Making love under midnight skies


V2
Making love on the mountain
Making love in the firelight
Making love on the mountain
Making love and we shine so bright


CH
Hey hey hey
We shine so bright (3x)
Hey hey hey



V3
Making love on the mountain
Making love in the early light
Making love on the mountain
Making love in the new sunrise


V4
Making love on the mountain
Making love in the golden light
Making love on the mountain
Making love and we shine so bright


CH
Hey hey hey
We shine so bright (3x)
Hey hey hey

Love mountain
Love a golden light
Love mountain
Love love love (2x)



CH

Track Name: Long Lost Century
LONG LOST CENTURY


V1
On a moonless night in a burned out building
Your heavy cries were floating
Seems all your life has needed mending
So you cut the ties to the old things
Oh whoa whoa


V2
Oh golden light of a daydream dawning
Now held so tight by the story
Of a carriage ride in a long lost century
Through a countryside in the morning
Oh whoa whoa


CH
I’ll take you out of here tonight (2x)
I'll take you out of here


V3
A man in white his gold watch turning
Was pressed for time you hurried
To drink his wine and follow blindly
But in your mind was folly
Oh whoa whoa


CH
I’ll take you out of here tonight (2x)
I'll take you out of here


B
Ooh ooh (4x)


V4
Your breath inside the window fogging
On the panes you write a warning
To the promised bride, her spotted ponies
And velvet shrine of endings
Oh whoa whoa


CH2
I’ll take you out of here tonight (2x)
You need no longer suffer fright
I’ll take you out of here tonight (2x)
Track Name: Better Than The Pain
BETTER THAN THE PAIN


V1
Never really meant to hurt you
Never really meant to break down
Even though I tried to reach out
From so far down
It was hard to feel the moment
Moments are all we have now


CH1
Was I mistaken to ever think that
You’d love me better than the pain did, the pain did
My heart is breaking
So come and take it from me now


V2
Never really thought I’d find you
Never really thought I’d be found
Even now we’re rushing, rushing out
From so far down
Finally we feel the moment
Moments are what we have now


CH2
We won’t be shaken I have a faith that
You'll love me better than the pain did, the pain did
My heart awakens
So come and take it from me now


B
I always wanted to find you
I always wanted to be found
I knew that I would know you
I knew it somehow
Finally we have our moment
Moments are what we have now


CH3/CH4
We won’t be shaken I have a faith that
You'll love me better than the pain did, the pain did
My heart awakens
So come and take it from me now


CH5
We won’t be shaken I have a faith that
You'll love me better than the pain did, the pain did
These hearts awaken
And now we start to hear the sound
Track Name: Little Sparks
LITTLE SPARKS

V1
Stain the hands spilling out the land
Mine the soul stooped and dropping low
Water rolls thin and gold


CH
Glimmer and a speck
Fleeting little fleck (2x)
Something in the heart
Eating little sparks (2x)


V2
Hands that sing hum and sting
Beckoning sacred scenes
All along sparse to speak


CH
Glimmer and a speck
Fleeting little fleck (2x)
Something in the heart
Eating little sparks (2x)


B
Something in the heart
Eating little sparks oh oh (4x)
Oh whoa oh oh oh (4x)
Track Name: Fair And Bright
FAIR AND BRIGHT


INTRO
Do do do (2x)


V1
If we drift away
Who then will there remain
To forge and carve their names
With hands unknown by shame


CH
So fair and bright
So where am I (2x)


B
Do do do (4x)


V2
Let us not regret
With hearts misplaced ahead
The time that we had tread
We must begin again


CH
So fair and bright
So where am I (4x)
So where am I
Track Name: Golden Days
THE GOLDEN DAYS


V1
Your shoes were dusty gray and
Your suitcase out of place and
You stood to turn away

Walk through that rusty gate oh
Like you could hardly wait and
No thought to hesitate


CH
Hey hey hey hey (3x)


V2
Wheat fields begin to sway and
Slow tears fall from your face and
You board that heavy train

The clouds have parted ways and
Your eyes look up to say oh
Are these the golden days


CH
Hey hey hey hey (3x)
Hey hey hey hey (3x)
Track Name: Countryside
COUNTRYSIDE


V1
Soft in flight over the countryside
Where you and I, we can be
By and by these hearts inside
With time collide underneath


V2
Far and wide through the countryside
Where you and I slow to breathe
Bound and bright only our hearts decide
Whether we look behind or between


CH
So we’ll pack up our love
And we’ll leave nothing of it behind
‘Cause it’s you and it’s me
And we’re going to be alright
My love


B
Goodbye goodbye goodbye goodbye goodbye


V3
Stride by stride to the countryside
Where here we might fall beneath
By and by these hearts inside
With time collide underneath


CH
So we’ll pack up our love
And we’ll leave nothing of it behind
‘Cause it’s you and it’s me
And we’re going to be alright
My love


B (Round)
Fare, farewell (4x)
Goodbye (2x)
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you my dear (2x)


CH
So we’ll pack up our love
And we’ll leave nothing of it behind
‘Cause it’s you and it’s me
And we’re going to be alright
My love
