YOURS AGAIN

I have been a stranger in this land so long / I don't see the sky until it's falling / Traded you for treasure, now the treasure's gone / I can't remember what you used to call me

Could there be any room in your house for me / could I learn to belong to you / could there be any heart in this hollow tree / say I am yours again

every night I listen to the mockingbird / she and I behold the dark descending / I guess we find a comfort in the lack of words / in knowing that somewhere the dawn is winning

CHORUS

I will be a servant, be your hired hand / I will eat what's fallen from the table / If I knock on your door will you let me in / will you let me in if you are able

you saw me on the road from a long way off / I suspect that you were always watching / waiting for your little girl to come unlost / and you run to me instead of walking

I believe there's a room in your house for me / I will learn to belong to you / my heart beats with the blood of a living tree / oh I am yours again


AIN'T NOBODY

The sun comes up and you hit the ground running / you don't slow down cause it don't stop coming / nothing ever makes you come alive now / it's why we're all walking with our eyes down / plugged in turned on and reaching for a reason to remind you why you matter to the world that we are leaving /oh if your heart could hear / you would not believe your ears

ain't nobody / ain't nobody / ain't nobody got time / ain't nobody / ain't nobody / ain't nobody got time for that

the sun goes down but you're sleeping with the TV on / so you don't think about the things we keep / safe out of conversation / at least the house looks good before it caves in / there's got to be a way that i could reach you to remind you why the matter to the one who really sees you /oh if your heart could hear / you would not believe your ears

CHORUS

oh if your heart could hear / then you would not believe / the wonder that you came from / the way it used to be / we saw the world in color / we drank it from the vine / now ain't nobody got time

CHORUS


I WAS THERE

I was there when the last note played / the audience rose to it's feet giving you praise / you always knew how to charm / the hardest of hearts in your hands like clay

i was there when the cupboards were full / the sun seemed to follow you and all you touched turned to gold / you couldn't count all your blessings / with more than your share but you didn't know

Oh, my friend / when your ship goes out or comes in / when your light grows bright or it dims / you're part of a story that will never end / i was there and i'll be there again

I was there when the money was gone / the phone didn't ring like it did and time drifted on / some said the magic was over / i say the truest things can never be lost

CHORUS

if the sun's in your sky and a song's in your heart / if your river's run dry and your stage has grown dark / if the dream in your eyes finds a home in the stars / if they build you a tower just to tear it apart

CHORUS


SETTLE DOWN

They tell you just to wait / try and have a little faith / don't go looking for the one / he's coming when you least expect

so here's the deal with me / I have a wild heart / it falls for everything / comes easily apart / but unequivocally / if you can hear me now / i'll love you endlessly / if you don't make me settle down

you really should get out some more / then you'd find someone I'm sure / have you thought about online / my cousin's cousin says it works

CHORUS

oh what's a girl to do / which advice to listen to / which road will lead to you?

CHORUS


COME ALONG

I am standing on this mountain / I'm standing here alone / every step that I've taken / I've taken on my own / I cannot help but feel weary eyes look around / searching for a face to share what I've found

it's a long road that we are walking on / we were not made to go alone / sister you don't have to be so strong / if you want me to / I will come along

I have felt the grip of darkness slide it's hands around my neck / I've battled for each mile / gone to war for every breath / I cannot help but wonder if you might have heard my cry / sometimes I imagine you are there with me at night

CHORUS

in the stillness of the evening / when the world has settled in / there's a sound i sometimes hear /that I long to hear again / I cannot help but think that even branches need to sway / so all the other trees will know that everything's okay

CHORUS


THERE IS A WAY

I don't understand how a man can walk away from everything / I don't understand how she loves him but he still wants to go / I don't understand where you are / you're holding us but we still fall / while we're breaking we just wanna know

there is a way worth keeping on / a love a thousand times as strong / as any pain we've ever known / let it lead, let it lead me / let it lead me home

I don't understand how a man can hate his brother openly / I don't understand how he fires a gun into a crowded room / I don't understand where you were when angels fell and steeples burned / while we're breaking we just wanna know

CHORUS

she hold the door open to another love / and the saints are singing praises to the God above / I don't understand forgiveness / oh but I have seen it grow / I've seen enough to know

CHORUS


WE KNOW IT BY HEART

I dreamed you were dying with one day to live / I tried to see you but you wouldn't see me / whatever I did / And I woke with a fever / and tears in my eyes / cause I never wondered if you really loved me / a day of my life

Play me the Eagles on your beat up guitar / the song never leaves me / we'll take it easy / we know it by heart

She said when she met you / that you were the one / she knew you would hold me / and that I would always be safe in your arms / it's like in that photo / we took by the sea / 25 years and I never stopped needing you next to me

Play me the Eagles on your beat up guitar / the song never leaves me / we'll take it easy / we know it by heart

The song never leaves me / we'll take it easy / we know it by heart
