Can't Find You

In the end there’ll be rain fallin’ on you
Rest your head on the wall
she say it’s nice bein’ the one you’re waitin’ for

Another new day is dawning upon you
Gotta work out what its for
Drink some wine, you’ll find you end up out the door

I’ve been looking for something its nothing that you see as new
I’ve been runnin’ around and I’ve found that I don’t have a clue

I can’t find you

With the dread, being lead through the dirt tracks
It’s gettin hard to stand tall
Hit the road, find the next girl in store

I’ve been looking for something its nothing that you see as new
I’ve been runnin’ around and I’ve found that I don’t have a clue
Find out, what it’s about, it’s a drought and the thoughts are renewed
I’ve been runnin’ around and I’ve found that I don’t have a clue


Crystal

I was 21 years old
There was a lot I couldn't be told
About the world, the times we live in
Our sense of rhythm
To be young and Rock'n'roll
Nothing could shake us from our mold
The booze would take us, 
And leave us vacant

Then along came a girl
All she did was a little twirl
Eyes like Crystal, a mind remise of
Some kind of pistol and time just stopped

5 years in we'd seen no sin
We did what we want not what we need
The smell of flowers, the sound of music
We chose our future
Never a question about intentions
(it) was unspoken and we were floatin

Then along came the boy,
The house and the toys
We drank Baileys, and we were thankful
For what we had

The parks full of Autumn
leaves are falling the time was changing
One thing I'm sure of as the years go on
Is you

The boy'll find hell in his girls
He'll take my toys to go meet his toys
Maybe they'll be boys we don't know

The girl will make us smile
For a while, there'll be parties boys and lies and tears and love

The parks full of Autumn
leaves are falling the time was changing
One thing I'm sure of as the years go on
Is you

You say write me a love song
But I just don't know how it goes  
There's nothin I can tell you
you just don't already know


 


Day Begins

You’ been wounded and lost it before
so hard, the down time
been waiting for the knock on my door
it’s been so long, since I seen ya
I find out your falling, the dark keeps on wailing your name
The rollin’ of wheels keeps my thinkin’, it’s all just the same

Sit back an’ watch the man drop his head
so hard, the down time
like he waitin’ for the time he be dead
it’s been so long, since I seen ya
Cause you can’t keep on going, the age is a’showin’ on you
look around and you’ll see that ain’t you got no friend, in me

Time begins to lose it’s edge
the cold wind it blows, you lay your head
Like another day begins
we see another day begin

Brought a line, to get you through the night,
so hard, the down time
circle back like a bird taken flight
it’s been so long, since I seen ya
and the sound of the drums, make you push through and run, it’s the same
want to go back and retry the first time, I saw your face

Time begins to lose it’s edge
the cold wind it blows, you lay your head
Like another day begins
we see another day begin


What He Knows

And he talks, and it goes on
and it never stops, until the point is lost
For now.

And he rolls, and he goes on
and it never stops, until the town is on the dashboard
And he says

Keep an eye on the road
Looking out for my home
Looking out for my soul
so it knows that it’s not alone

Keep an eye on your chin
don’t let the black dog in
he only prey on your sin
it knows that it’s not alone

And then when you begin
to feel the dust and the rhythm, comin on
you know that you’re not alone

And he mocks, the trucks that power on
the wrongs he has undone
the songs he hasn’t sung

with the excuse, that time has past
it wouldn’t last, the road behind is long
ahead it’s nearly gone, he said

Keep an eye on the road
Looking out for my home
looking out for my soul
so it knows that it’s not alone

Keep an eye on your chin
don’t let the black dog in
he only prey on your sin
it knows that it’s not alone

And then when you begin
to feel the dust and the rhythm, comin on
you know that you’re not alone

Keep an eye on the road
looking out for my home
looking out for my soul
so it knows that it’s not alone

Keep an eye on your chin
don’t let the black dog in
he only prey on your sin
it knows that it’s not alone
