Track Name: Just for a While
If I try
I can always go
Back to where the low was high
It takes two
Seconds and I'm gone
Back to where the wrong was right
And it makes me smile
But it's just for a while

If I want to
I can always go
Back to when the stone was white
It takes three
Seconds and I'm there
Back when all the red had glare
And it gets me high
But it's just for a while

And it feels so right
But it's just for a while
Track Name: It's Easy
I sense a storm is coming
Black clouds are heading this way
There is no use in hiding
Why should we be scared?
Oh, let's dance in the rain

You need a woman by you
You look for her each and every day
But she can sense that off you
So it turns her away
Oh, won't you hear me say

It's easy if you don't try
It's easy if you don't care
It's easy if you free your mind
It's easy if you dare

I get a little dizzy
From all this new music around
It seems like all they're after
Is just the same old sound
So hollow and round

It's easy if you don't try
It's easy if you don't care
It's easy if you free your mind
It's easy if you dare
Track Name: Not the Man
You looked at the ceiling and counted for me
All the things I could lose
If something inside me was stupid enough to refuse

I turned to you slowly and asked if you knew
What it is one should do
When someone they love is just holding them down like glue

Oh, this is not the man
You used to know
Show me you understand
Please let me know that I can go

The light from the kitchen was never so strong
Your breath began to slow down
I layed there with eyes open wide feeling lost and bound

Something inside me had started to burn
Burn my blood and my skin
As I took away the life that we had once again

Oh, this is not the man
You used to know
Show me you understand
Please let me know that
Oh, this is not the man
You used to know
Show me you understand
Please let me know that I can
Know that I can go
I can go
I can go
Track Name: Stock's in the Ground
"When I leapt into the car to drive home,
I found the task extremely difficult.
I think I drove the whole way home on the right hand side of the road.
In moments of stress, such as was this journey home,
What one forgets so easily,
There lies the truth and the pain."
-Nick Drake

Nine in the morning
Your family is mourning, you're gone
Nine in the evening
I'm sitting and hearing your songs
Life's but a fruit tree
Your lyrics, they chill me
Your music's a drug to my mind
And it stings when I think of how they to your talent were blind

You don't look like a star
When you play your guitar
And you never once knew
The crowd's there for you
Now the stock's in the ground
And your life still echoes in sound

Seven years later
Your family's still mourning, you're gone
Seven years later
We're sitting and we're playing your songs
Time it has told me
Your lyrics still chill me
You're as brilliant as you'll ever be
And it stings when I think of how you'll never be here to see

You don't look like a star
When you play your guitar
And you never once knew
The crowd's there for you
Now the stock's in the ground
And your life still echoes
The stock's in the ground
And your life still echoes
The stock's in the ground
And your life still echoes in sound
Track Name: She Came with the Dawn
She came with the dawn
Beautiful and captivating
I loved her eyes
She left with no tears
Hollow look and frozen body
I missed her smile

The stars filled the sky
Hoping to see
A glimpse of her face
So free

She came with the dawn
Winter brought us close together
I held her hand
She left with no tears
Autumn pushed her out to wander
I missed her smile

The stars filled the sky
Hoping to see
A glimpse of her face
So free

She left me with hope
That someday she will come back to me
I, I'll never try
Track Name: Baby Blue
I've been down this road before
I've seen its twists and turns
Now’s the time to grab this here chance
Before it slowly burns

Baby Blue, I'll take you for a ride
Baby Blue, the world is on our side

I've got bones beneath my skin
I get up when I fall
But if you want, my Baby Blue
Well, then you can have it all, yeah

Baby Blue, I'll take you for a ride
Baby Blue, the world is on our side

Baby Blue, I'll take you for a ride
Baby Blue, the world is on our side

Tell me something to help me come back home to you
You know that I want to, Baby Blue
You know that I want to
You know that I love you, Baby Blue
You know that I want to
You know that I love you, Baby Blue
Track Name: All That Snow
I loved you for a very long time
I loved you and it did me fine
But now you're off alone again
And I just think I need a friend
Oh, that snow
Oh, that snow

And up to here
The road was clear
All that snow can't be real

I kissed you for the very first time
Even though I knew you're blind
Your eyes closed up without a sound
The walls began to spin around
Oh, that snow
Oh, that snow

And up to here
The road was clear
All that snow can't be real
Can't be real

There's a spark when we're together
That I can't explain
Don't let it slip away this time
Before it's gone forever
Track Name: May
I found out what you wrote
On that hidden note
You wrote that you were sad to your bones
And alone

I heard you took a vow
To take up the guitar
You need to learn to be with yourself
Again

May
You have got to stay away
And believe me when I say
My heart will wait
Every day
For you, May

I saw you passing by
On the street at night
You looked at me and gave me a last
Smile

I understand at last
We can't change the past
We can only stay on our paths
And walk

May
You have got to stay away
You have got to stay away
And believe me when I say
My heart will wait
Every day
For you, May
Track Name: Under These Skies
Every day when I wake up alone
I'm not sure where I am
And every night when her eyes start to close
It's like I'm sinking in sand

It's easier now
Just to let her go
It's easier now
Just to call it home
Under these skies

Make it so I don't have to go back
I can sleep through the rain
Make it so I don't watch her grow up
I can take all the blame

It's easier now
Just to let her go
It's easier now
Just to call it home
Under these skies

It's easier now
It's easier now
Under these skies of blue
Track Name: Now You've Found It
Look at all these tired, wired people
Who don't go out to play
I can understand them, know them, be them
But I'm careful every day

Seems to me you've traveled enough
Looking for a soul that you can trust
Well, now you've found it
Now you've found it

Every time she's laughing, dancing or crying
There's a trembling in my knees
And if you've ever felt it, or something like it
Well, then you know what I mean

Seems to me you've traveled enough
Looking for a soul that you can trust
Well, now you've found it

Seems to me you've traveled enough
Looking for a soul that you can trust
Well, now you've found it
Now you've found it
Now you've found it
Now you've found it
